Nowadays, contractors typically install simple inexpensive and inefficient wire systems that have under-sized rods with little strength and durability. One of the smartest things for a homeowner to do is invite a professional over to create a more efficient design to house your most cherished and often expensive clothing and accessories.
Once you have made up your mind which company is coming over, make sure they estimate how many clothes, etc. you have to store. Keep in mind, this is also the time to purge your closet of unwanted or unworn clothing you just don’t need anymore, see one of my other blogs for that
We proudly use only Canadian materials since they are not dowsed with chemicals like most imports. We pride ourselves on installing a product that won’t damage the health of our clients.
Essential to a satisfying storage solution, the closet company should offer a design and estimate upon a consultation with yourself and any other decision maker in the home. I always find it strange that they some other companies have to consult their home office for a quote. They don’t have the experience perhaps? When you have made the decision, it normally takes two to four weeks for the actual installation day(s) of the closet(s) depending the complexity of the actual design. It is so satisfying to seeing the actual drawings come to life in three dimensions.
Here are a few important questions you should consider when hiring the closet company.
