Perfect. We had an excellent experience with Sergio and his team. Could not be more complimentary. I would not hesitate using them again or recommending them to my friends and family, very very good experience.
Right from the beginning when I contacted Sergio about installing my Ikea cabinets, Sergio was incredibly responsive to my many questions/e-mails. He always responded in a timely way and he never made me feel that my questions were stupid! He demolished the kitchen in less than a day and disposed of the old cabinets. The entire process of demolition and installation only took two days. The cabinets are beautiful and perfectly installed. He also cleaned up everything, even inside the cabinets and drawers. I absolutely would hire him again and I would recommend him without any reservation. Thanks, Sergio!!!!
Kitchen Craft assembled and installed about 20 Ikea cabinets in our kitchen. They did a great job and everything is installed beautifully. Sergio of Kitchen Craft is an excellent installer of Ikea cabinets. He used to work for Ikea doing installations until they switched to a national contract. He was a pleasure to work with. The process was fast and efficient. We sent him an email of the Ikea 3D planner layout of the kitchen, he promptly returned an estimate for cost and timeline, neither of which ever changed. As the time for installation approached he was communicative about scheduling and once a date was picked stuck to that date. The installation took two days (we have a large kitchen with ~20 pieces). Everything looked great and he and his assistant have years of experience assembling and installing Ikea cabinets. They know how to install them and how to make them look their best. Ikea does not currently install in Gainesville, but I would have no hesitation in recommending Kitchen Craft to do the job. They install within 200 miles of Sarasota, FL.
The service went very well. From the first contact with Sergio, he was very professional in his approach to the project. We requested an estimate which he promptly provided and then told us exactly what was involved. He kept in touch with us the entire time, told us when he was available, and also gave us the flexibility to change dates based on our schedule and availability. He contacted us a day before installation to let us know what time he would arrive and he was very punctual. During the installation he explained any work he had to do that may seem unusual to us, making sure we understood before he proceeded. Sergio even made recommendations if he thought a change to our plan would provide us with more space or would make our kitchen look more cosmetically appealing. The job was completed on time and the next day Sergio contacted us to see if we were satisfied--- because he was willing to come back to make any additional adjustments necessary. We had to exchange a couple of doors because we bought the wrong size. After we picked up the doors, Sergio came back to install them and give the entire job his final inspection. This was a really good experience for us and we would highly recommend Kitchen Craft LLC for cabinet installation, especially IKEA cabinets. Sergio said he was an expert in IKEA cabinet installation, and he certainly is. And........he has a great sense of humor!
It took me awhile to write this review because I couldn't find the words to describe how happy and thrilled I am with this companies exceptional work! Everything was done quickly and in only 2 days I had a completely new kitchen! I only wish I could post photos of the work so you could see it for yourself. The Ikea cabinets are clean and modern, making my very small kitchen look much bigger! I love the whisper close on the drawers and the handles. I can see myself cooking in my kitchen for many years to come. Mine is a very long story--to much to go into here. To me, the kitchen is the heart of the home and my heart just wasn't there after the actions of a different contractor. My kitchen was a total disaster until Sergio stepped in and gave me a kitchen to be proud of. I can not give a high enough recommendation. Thank you again for everything!
Sergio made a preliminary trip to my home in mid-February to advise me on the design, do the measurements, draw up the specs and provide me with a list that I could take to IKEA. After my old kitchen was demolished and ceiling/wall/electrical work completed by my contractor, Sergio and his assistant put together and installed 7 wall and 6 base cabinets, trim & kickplates in about a day and a half. My house was built in 1951, and I don't think there is a straight and square wall in it, so it was not an easy installation. He also needed to work around a gas line coming out of the wall when the cooktop cabinet was to go.
I can't say enough about how pleased I am with the work Kitchen Craft did! The cabinets look wonderful, and the installation was done so quickly. He even made some odd size filler pieces where the walls were out of plumb. As previous reviewers have mentioned, emails were always responded to promptly, and some revisions I made in the original plans were quickly accommodated and the IKEA on-line planner updated so I could see how they looked. In addition, it was just fun having Sergio & his assistant working in my home. Not only were they professional, competent & prompt, but very pleasant to work with. I would certainly recommend Kitchen Craft for any IKEA installation, and will be doing so to any of my friends who are contemplating a kitchen redo.
After purchasing our kitchen from IKEA we found Kitchen Installers LLC online at IKEAFANS. Sergio and his helper were there immediately after making initial contact and completed the job in record time. Our kitchen is very large and 17 individual cabinets needed to be made and hung. All of the measurements, leveling, and set up were done by Sergio and the results were great. IKEA cabinets are not custom cabinets and sometimes the pieces aren't perfect, but Sergio did a great job putting them together and setting up while explaining to us what needed to be done or if/why something was not fitting properly. One of the walls was not straight and Sergio took the time to install the cabinets with this in mind. He even came back out to make some last minute adjustments after the counter had been installed (by another company) and our back ordered products had arrived. The work looks incredible. He took the time to cut and handcraft pieces of molding that weren't in our original order just to make it look right. From our very first contact via email, Sergio and his team have been nothing but professional and courteous. Every one of my emails was promptly responded to with a clear idea of the work to be done and time estimates. He was always very punctual and organized. He would call enroute to our house and quote the navigation system as to what time he would be there. He was never late. Work areas were always kept clean and on a particulary rainy day he appologized for not being able to clean as much as he would have liked due to the weather. The work itself is stunning. I never thought that an IKEA kitchen would look so good and custom-made. I couldn't have ever achieved the result alone. We are having some extra work done (due to someone else installing our fridge incorrectly) and I have no doubt that Sergio will be as helpful as he has been in the past.
Anyone familiar with IKEA appreciates that each part comes in a separate box, and instructions for assembly of the cabinets are diagrams for each part. In the case of our job, there were 160 boxes. A massive job, and one best left to professional installer familiar with IKEA products. Sergio, the owner, was THE BEST! He was prompt, courteous, went above and beyond , even though the job took an extra half-day (one cabinet had to be exchanged for a smaller one). We were delighted with his professionalism, and more importantly, the cabinets are level, plumb and true, thanks to Sergio's dedication to "doing the job right"!
A superb experience! Sergio was able to respond right away, offering to do our kitchen cabinet installation on Sunday so we'd be ready for the holidays. Gave me a reasonable fixed fee. He and his assistant did a great job at super-sonic speed, then offered to finish another cabinet installation we had started. Again, price was reasonable. We are picky and expect the best. We got it. We highly recommend this company.
Very Impressed with Sergio and the Kitchen Craft crew. Though based in Sarasota, he travels a 200 mile radius so this job was in Ft Myers. He and his crew are prompt and efficient. Quoted me 2200 dollars to install a kitchen in a gutted shell and exceeded my expectations, even though they worked in less than optimal conditions ( there was sawing going on and the floors were still in the process of being installed). He also recommended a planner to contact who drove from Tampa for a separate fee, but I would recommend to ensure you can go to IKEA and get exactly what you need. If you live in an area IKEA doesn't service (or even if you do) call Sergio. I cannot recommend Sergio and Kitchen Craft enough.
