Hi, I'm Michael Hartel, Founder of Cabinet IQ.
We help people build dream homes by transforming ugly spaces into functional masterpieces.
When I remodeled my first home it was a nightmare. The process was stressful and overwhelming. I felt confused and didn't know where to start.
Most remodeling companies I met with didn't offer expert guidance with product selection. Finding the cabinet, countertop and tile combinations on my own was frustrating. AND I had to drive all across town to a dozen different stores.
I wasn't confident in any contractor's abilities with all the remodeling nightmare stories going around. Who can I actually trust?
When I finally got the materials and chose a contractor, it was a struggle to get the project done ON TIME. By the end, it cost me extra time, money and headaches which I didn't expect when I first started.
It quickly went from being an exciting home renovation to a massive pain in the @$*
There had to be a better way and I decided to engineer a streamlined remodeling process.
Cabinet IQ was born to Transform Your Home Into A Modern Masterpiece.
