Lazarou Joinery’s Process (From Start to Finish)
Step 1 – Free Measure & Quote
Lazarou Joinery can come to your home and offer design and material advice, measure and based on these discussions, a free quotation will be supplied.
Alternatively if you are building a new house and already have house or joinery plans we can quote from these, however a showroom appointment is recommended to discuss design options and materials.
Step 2- 3D designs
After a quotation is supplied and you are happy to take the next step, Lazarou Joinery can provide one set of standard 3D images of your “Dream Kitchen”, this service will incur a non-refundable design commencement fee. Revised Quote or images will incur additional fees.
Upon acceptance of the quotation and 3D images the design commencement fee will be deducted off our 20% “Acceptance” invoice.
Step 3 – Specifications & details
Once your 3D design and quotation has been approved we then need to finalize all details including, design, colour, materials, appliances and any other relevant specifications.
At this time, acceptance of quotation and 3D designs will be required and 20% deposit on acceptance will be invoiced.
Appliances sourced through Lazarou Joinery will be invoiced in full and require full payment at time of our 20% invoice.
We then order your appliances so that they are here incase of any delays with supply.
Please note: any significant revisions to quotation and drawings more than 1 x Quotation amendment and 1 x Design alternation may incur additional charges to recover costs.
A showroom appointment may be required at this time.
Step 4 – Check measure
Once your 20% Acceptance deposit has been received and all relevant information from step 3 has been provided, an onsite check measure will be arranged.
A suitable installation date will be discussed and penciled in.
Step 5- Final Sign off
After a check measure has been completed our drawings will be adjusted to reflect any changes or adjustments that may be required.
Once all adjustments have been made you will be supplied with Finalised Quotation, detailed plans, elevations,& 3D’s long with a checklist of confirmed materials, finishes, colours, appliance model numbers and any other relevant items.
An estimated installation date will be advised.
Step 6 – Production
Once you have confirmed all information provided (in the final sign-off package) is correct, production of your kitchen/ joinery can begin.
Our Joinery’s lead time can vary from 3 – 8 Weeks from final sign off to installation, dependent upon inclusions.
Step 7- Site commencement
Our 70% progress invoice is due for payment before installation commences. If this does not occur, your job will have to be rescheduled with an approximate delay of three Weeks, our installations are booked this far ahead in order to run smoothly.
When your installation date arrives,
If arranged, we will be on site to remove your old kitchen and coordinate with the relevant trades involved.
If you don’t require your existing kitchen removal, your new kitchen installation will commence once any services have been moved or renewed.
Step 8 – Installation and completion
Our installation should be a 2-3 day cycle.
If required, once joinery has been installed stone bench tops will be measured and fabricated with installation conducted in the following days.
Electrical and plumbing fit off will follow the installation of the kitchen or joinery
If you require glass splash backs, this will take a further 2 weeks after kitchen installation as we can only measure to fit once the kitchen and bench tops have been installed. This is for accuracy of fit, then the glass is produced and painted & allowed to dry for three days before installation.
Once all finishing touches have been applied we will then hand over your new kitchen.
At this time the balance of the remaining 10%, along with any unforeseen extras will be invoiced.
Final payments are strictly by return mail or EFT.
We look forward to being of service to you in the near future!
