Estimate

Your initial online estimate is a virtual viewing based on pictures and information provided. The cost is approximated by our office team and all online estimates are always based on our Eco range, (please note this is always an educated approximation) and is always subject to change. A qualified surveyors report is required to provide a detailed estimate.

We are confident that in most instances we are as accurate as we can be, however as we haven’t physically seen or measured the kitchen it may not on some occasion be exact. This could mean the price could change upon start of installation. This doesn’t mean the price necessarily increases it could also decrease. Price changes can include additional items being added, upgrade of materials used, repair work undertaken, additional materials required.

No work will be carried out until our customers are aware of any adjustments and has been previously agreed.

Material price increases 

Due to the unprecedented times we are in, there can be price increases on materials used,

If this is the case, there may be an increase to your job price. We will inform you as soon as we can with any changes.

It is the customers responsibility in these cases to contact 3rd party tradesmen.

Splashbacks/boxing in/additional joinery work

As our splashbacks are fitted directly on top of existing wall coverings i.e tiles/original splashback it creates a cavity the thickness of the substrate, ranging from 1mm to 12mm (this means, after installation there will be a gap the thickness of the pre existing wall covering between the wall and our fitted splashback)

We are not liable for filling this cavity and offer this service as an alternative to replacement. It is the customers responsibility to organise this through a third party (painter and decorator)

Our offer of free fitment of customers own provided glass/stainless steel splashback for behind hob only must be correct size (fit in space) or we will not be able to install. This free of charge service is only applicable to installation period. If unable to fit due to wrong size, these dates are non transferrable.

We recommed an appropriate rated glass or stainless steel splashback for being hob/cooker. ADVISE until this additiuonal protection is installed refrain from using the back burners, especially gas.

If plug sockets have been grouted into tiles we accept no liability for damage caused to existing plug socket/existing tiles/existing wall coverings when removing and refitting. We hold no liability for any fittings, wiring, junction boxes, mechanisms, lugs, threaded screws, plastic mountings when removing/reinstalling. If any issues occur it is the customers responsibility to contact any 3rd party tradesmen.

Upon doing splashbacks, sockets need a certain length of cable behind the unit in order for us to install. If the cable isn’t long enough we employ a simple process of turning off all electricity,  removing socket cover, disconnecting wires, taping up with insulated electrical tape and leave safe. It is the customer’s responsibility to arrange the relevant tradesperson to refit

If kickplates are left off i.e if new floor has been fitted it is the customers responsibility to refit kickplates or to ensure they are altered to fit before wrap installation. If any additional joinery work is required the customer will be notified, there is an option subject to charge and availability we can offer this service, but however it should be done prior to installation.

Supplying equipment 

We do not offer this service, however in any instance of a customer requesting any piece of equipment, we hold no liability for any supplied equipment i.e extractor/hob/oven/microwave/refrigerator/dishwasher/wine fridge/sinks/taps/waste/lighting. We are happy on occasion, where we are able to on customer request, pick up, pay for, drop off to customer. We charge no cost other than reimbursement for the equipment and hold no liability. The receipt will be provided to the customer.

Additionally we may on occasion, be able to provide installation and installation price will be charged separately. Please note we hold no liability after install of any equipment and any faults, warranty issues should be directed to the manufacturer and/or wholesaler

Existing electrical work

In most cases we are able to work round existing sockets/wiring/fuse boxes/cables however if its not possible and any issues are identified during installation that could NOT have been flagged at the pre installation assessment (this could be on installation day), these will be flagged during installation and the lead installers will report this to both the customer and head office for advisement.

Existing kickplate lights need to be removed before wrapping, if this hasn’t been done prior to the fitters arrival there is a few options.

They can be left unwrapped

They can be left unwrapped and brought by the customer with the lights removed to our unit at a later date, independently of installation. Refitting is the customers responsibility. There maybe a delay in the kickplates being wrapped and they may have to be left at our workshop and picked back up by the customer at a later date.

They can be removed by our team at an additional cost however we hold no liability for existing electrical work when removing

Lighting

We provide and under unit lighting. We use 30mm polished stainless steel finish white LED light fittings these are installed on a relay system and powered by 240v transformer plugged directly into the chosen socket. These are operated by the on off switch on your chosen socket. All wiring and fittings are completely sealed and waterproof.

Our under unit lights are fitted using our fabricated 18mm square edge housings. Where possible all lights will be linked to one transformer however if his is not possible additional transformers maybe required (at £25 per transformer) In some instances it is not possible to support lights in some areas of your kitchen, if its not possible and any issues are identified during installation that could NOT have been flagged at the pre installation assessment (this could be on installation day), these will be flagged during installation and the lead installers will report this to both the customer and head office for advisement.

Worktops/Upstands

Pre installation all worktops should be repaired, all silicone removed round sink, hop, upstands.

It is the customers responsibility if they chose to better the condition of the pre existing worktop/upstand/joining bar before wrap installation.

Our flat panel square edge doors and drawers

Our flat panel doors and drawers are fabricated in our workshop and are the very next best thing to a brand new manufactured door. They are made of commercial grade edge banded compressed MDF 18mm thick, and come with a 5 year guarantee.

Handles

Handle relocation

When existing doors are being used and new handles have been requested we recommend using existing hole spacings. However if chosen handles do not fit the existing hole spacings the old handle holes required to be filled (with wood filler) and sanded. It is the customers responsibility to ensure this is completed before fitters arrival.

We recommend this process is repeated 2-3 times to insure the smoothness of the surface (any half filled holes indentations scratches, convex or concave finishes around the hole will show underneath the vinyl wrap)

The smoothness of the vinyl is only as good as the surface it is being applied too, we always recommend repairing sanding/smoothing out any in-discrepancies before installation.

Colour match

When partially wrapping kitchens. We cannot guarantee a colour match to existing colour, or guarantee a match to a previously wrapped/partial wrapped kitchen. Vinyl wrap is produced in batch quantities and colour shade differences occur. We therefore recommend having your full project wrapped on the same installation date. We will however try our very best to get as close as possible. It is the customers responsibility to choose from products/samples available, customer confirmation required before installation.

Finish

The result and smoothness of the vinyl is only going to be as good as the surface it is being applied too and the environment it is being wrapped in. Things such as high levels of dust, unfinished joinery work, dusty flooring, cooker grease and splashes pet hairs should all be addressed pre-installation as these can lead to contaminated wraps. In most cases, contaminations are no more than 5% of the overall area on average. Kitchenwrapco hold no liability for environmental conditions, it is the customers responsibility to properly prepare the room.

We always recommend repairing sanding/smoothing out any in-discrepancies before installation. Any concerns should be addressed at viewing/detailed estimate/pre installation assessment stage.

Ultimately affect the overall effectiveness of the vinyl wrap installation. We use reasonable care and application in all aspects of installation. Any independent concerns will be documented by lead installer and reported to head office.

The finishing silicon seal can take between 4 and 6 hours to dry. Please avoid these areas highlighted by lead installer. It is recommended/but not necessary that the kitchen area should be avoided for 4-6 hours.

We advise silicone seals should be replaced post install every 16-2 months. This is the responsibility of the customer.

Silicone Sealer

It is important to finalise your silicone sealer colour choice before installation. If no specific silicone has been chosen our lead fitter on installation will make a choice based on surrounding colours.

We offer a 3 month warrantee on decorative silicone application, this is a free complimentary service and any future replacement is the responsibility of the customer. We recommend an annual replacement using a 3rd party mastic application professional.

Common practice dictates silicone should be replaced annually, It is the customers responsibility for proper upkeep, care and replacement when necessary. PLEASE NOTE extra care must be taken when cleaning silicone sealed areas. If sealer lifts due to improper care/heavy cleaning/abrasive solutions Kitchenwrapco holds no responsibility and it is the customers responsibility to replace. We recommend using a soft sponge to lightly clean these areas with out anti- bacterial architectural surface cleaner.

The decorative application used in Kitchenwrapco installations is a complimentary service and not essential as architectural vinyl application is fully sealed and water tight on installation.

Pre-Installation

Decorating/renovations

We advise our customers to have all relevant renovations/decorating work complete before the date of your wrap installation. We recommend as to limit any damages caused to the vinyl wrap after installation by other tradesmen
