Frequently Asked Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Questions
What is kitchen & bath CRATE?
Kitchen & bath CRATE is quick, affordable, high-quality remodel system created by Scott Monday in 2012. After years of building commercial and custom residential projects, Scott realized clients on a strict timeline & budget needed an alternative. He went to work building a system that delivers top quality projects in a short amount of time at a great price. Thus, kitchenCRATE & bathCRATE were born (now simply called “kitchen & bath CRATE”).
How does CRATE accommodate my pets during construction?
We understand your pets are part of your family. During the launch meeting we’ll ask you a series of questions related to your pets and how we can ensure their comfort and safety during construction.
Do you carry general liability, workers comp, and auto insurance?
We carry $2,000,000 of coverage for general liability and $1,000,000 for workers comp and auto insurance. We’d be more than happy to provide proof of insurance at a moments notice!
Is the CRATE work guaranteed?
Of course! We offer a 2-year warranty on workmanship and materials. California state law only requires one year, but that just seems too short to us.
How long will my project take?
CRATE projects are completed in 7-18 days depending on the project scope. More importantly, you’ll receive a complete day-by-day project schedule at your pre-construction (launch) meeting, which takes place 1-2 weeks before construction begins. If we fail to substantially complete your project in accordance with the schedule, we credit you $250 per day for each day you’re without your kitchen or bathroom. That’s right: if we’re late, we pay you!
What if I want to add things to my CRATE project?
Kitchen & bath CRATE offers an assortment of common add-ons to further customize your renovation. However, significant changes to the standard CRATE concept (like significant structural modification) turns the project into a custom remodel and no longer make the project a CRATE candidate.

How does the CRATE pricing work?
Each CRATE project is priced individually after your free in-home consultation. That way you can see the cost behind each facet of your project and make the best possible decision on how to move forward.
But prior to that, in order to help you start the pricing journey for your project, we’ve broken kitchenCRATE into four product types (Refinish, Classic, Custom and Tops & Splash) and bathCRATE into 2 project types (Hall & Master). These products offer a general idea of how much your renovation may cost. Take a look at this page for a summary of kitchenCRATE products or here for the bathCRATE products.

Do you require a deposit?
We do not require a deposit, however, on the first day of construction, we require a 30% progress payment to partially cover the items procured thus far. Your kitchen & bath CRATE sales professional will gladly discuss all of this with you well before the contract is signed!
What payment methods can I use for my CRATE? Do you offer financing?
Check is always preferred, but we have a few available if you would like to explore other financing options.
