FAQs

Replacement kitchen doors and worktops or bespoke full-fitted kitchens, we do it all! Got questions about what we do? Check out our FAQ’s below!

 

Of course. Gordon’s Makeovers are a long running, well-established family business who have operated for over 20 years. We have completed thousands of kitchen installations since 1994 and our testimonials are a testament to not only the quality of our work and products but also the business owners, fitters and everyone involved.
No, Gordon’s Makeovers will only ask you for 30% deposit up front and will only take the final 70% upon delivery of your products. The fitting fee is payable once our fitters have completed the work and is payable separately to the fitter’s directly.
Most kitchen carcasses last for up to 20 years, so most of the time you won’t need to replace them. However, Gordon’s Makeovers can offer affordable kitchen cabinets, made to measure to fit any kitchen design. Gordon’s Makeovers can replace your entire kitchen and manage the process from start to finish.
Feel free to get in touch with us, as we may be able to supply you with just one door, however, in our experience, unless we have supplied your original kitchen/kitchen doors then an exact matchup is unlikely. We are not an ecommerce online shop, where you can just buy a door “off-the-shelf” as all our doors are made-to-measure.
Gordon’s Makeovers offer FREE, NO OBLIGATION estimates, but have to make a home visit to measure your existing kitchen and give an accurate and honest quote. We don’t believe in hard sales, so you will never feel under any pressure from us to make a decision and can take all the time you want.
We endeavour to create as little disruption as possible and we try to leave the kitchen operational at the end of each working day. All mess will be cleared.
See our Showrooms page and if you are still unsure then contact Head Office below and we will advise you of when we have appointments available in your area.
No, Gordon’s Makeovers will do as little or as much as you want, from a simple kitchen worktop replacement, to a kitchen makeover, to a full kitchen refit. We can also manage other aspects such as plumbing, tiling, electrical work and decorating so we are the one-stop-shop for all your kitchen needs.  
It is very difficult for us to give you an exact quote over the phone, as it all depends on the current state of your kitchen, the amount of doors, if you require anything else etc. The best way is to allow us to come into your home with our Free No Obligation Quotation appointment, as then we can measure up and give you an accurate quote there and then.
Normally the changing of doors and drawer fronts for a makeover is completed in just one day. If worktops, sinks and appliances are also to be installed then this will probably be completed in two – three days. So there is no need to be waiting weeks for your kitchen to be completed. Obviously if you are having a full kitchen installed then this will take longer, as usually plastering is involved, so has to dry… along with other work.
No. Gordon’s Makeovers provides a made-to-measure kitchen door service so age is of no importance providing the kitchen carcasses are sound, regardless of whether they are imperial or metric.
Yes we can remove the rubbish following your kitchen fit or makeover, please ask our surveyor at the time of your quotation. We can, at an additional charge, arrange for a skip to remove your old kitchen carcasses, doors, worktops, etc... The cost for this service will of course depend on the size of the skip required. If you would like to dispose of the rubbish yourself or you know someone who can, we can cut down the old materials for you on site, making them easier to dispose of at your local tip/refuse site. If you would like this service then please make it clear at the time of your quotation so that we can allocate our Fitters the time to do this.
Unfortunately we can't provide a guaranteed match-up service unless we have previously supplied your existing kitchen. If we have then that's great, please contact us with the style, colour and measurements of your door or doors and we can discuss prices and place an order for you. If we haven't supplied your existing kitchen but you have seen a style and colour that you feel would be suitable, either through our website or by visiting our showrooms, then please feel free to contact us and we will see what we can do to help. Please be advised however, colours and their shades can vary e.g. Oak can look very different depending on the manufacturer's specifications, as can Maple, Birch or Walnut therefore our "Oak" may not match with your existing kitchen's "Oak".

Unfortunately we do not provide this service and we cannot re-cover or re-paint any damaged, peeling kitchen doors. It may be possible for us to match up to your existing kitchen door style and replace your old door with a new one, however this is something we cannot guarantee either. Colours and styles change over time and therefore can be difficult to match-up due to a number of factors, not least of all the kitchen's age and original supplier. If you are lucky enough to find your existing door style and colour in our Door Ranges we can of course provide any sized door, for any purpose, made-to-measure. Please feel free to contact us for a quote.
