FAQs

Q1: Do you sell your designs / will you provide design work only?
We do not provide design only services.  In order to achieve the best outcome in quality and service for your home renovation, Ulrich, Inc. has always maintained a practice of providing complete services from design through installation.  However, we will work with you in a way that is flexible.  If you have a trade professional – builder, architect, plumber, electrician, etc. – that you wish to work with, we will gladly work hand-in-hand with those professionals.  Respective responsibilities will be clearly delineated in our written contract with you.

Q2: What does your design fee (retainer) cover?
The design fee commits us both – Ulrich, Inc. and homeowner – to working together.  The fee amount is applied to your final contract total, so it is not an add-on expense.  Ulrich, Inc. requires this fee to finalize plans and begin the next exciting steps of product shopping and selection.

Q3: Can you provide a cost estimate for my project during our intial showroom visit?
Without visiting your home or having some detailed plans, we can only give you a range of costs based on our experience and your description of what you anticipate doing.  So, we can only provide a rough estimate at such an early stage.  Once we have viewed and measured your space, have thoroughly discussed your needs, wishes and budget preferences, we will provide you with realistic cost information, more specificially, budget ranges for each major stage of your project.  And as we work with you to select and purchase materials to make your vision come together, we will help guide you on costs along the way.

Q4: Can you renovate my bathroom?
Yes!  Our experts can renovate any room in your home.  Kitchens and bathrooms are the rooms that we remodel most often.  Like kitchens, bathrooms are one of the spaces in your home that require technical expertise and knowledge to ensure an optimal outcome.  Quality planning and installation can avoid costly future repairs such as leaks, mold, etc.  Statistics tell us that bathrooms are one of the most expensive renovation investments per square foot in your home, but doing it right (with Ulrich, Inc.!) will save you money in the long term and allow you to reap a greater return on that investment in the future - not to mention providing you with greater user comfort and aesthetic pleasure from the finished product!

Q5: I see that you are a leading dealer for Wood-Mode cabinetry.  Will you sell me just cabinets?
Our policy is to install the cabinetry whenever we supply it in order to ensure quality planning, installation, and most importantly, customer satisfaction.  Exceptions to this policy can be discussed on a case by case basis.

Q6: Can I use my own plumber or electrician?
Yes, we will stipulate responsibilities in our contract with you.

Q7: Can I purchase my kitchen appliances through Ulrich?
Yes, we are dealers for many leading brands like Sub-Zero, Wolf, Miele, Bosch, Thermador and more.  We can offer you competitive pricing and handle all of the associated details for you at the same time!  And if you purchase your appliances through Ulrich, you can take advantage of our Consumer Care program.  Our Consumer Care Consultant will personally contact you once your project is complete to set an appointment in your home to go over the use and care of each appliance with you to help you get started.

Q8: Who can I call with any questions I have during my project?
You can contact your designer or your project manager.  They will both be with you every step of the way!

  • Mr. & Mrs. Eugene Filippi

    I am writing to thank the entire ULRICH team for transforming our kitchen and powder room into the perfect space for our 1918 home in Westwood, NJ. I believe the remodeling process was as quick and painless as it could possibly be and completely free of the horror stories that one typically hears when discussing home remodeling project.” “We have been impressed by the team approach your company uses. Every person we have come in contact with has been friendly, responsive and helpful in finding answers and solutions throughout the process.” “ULRICH operates like a well-oiled machine and we want to thank everyone for doing such a beautiful job.

  • Fran Grabow

    To say that we think our remodeled kitchen is exceptional would be an understatement. Not only is it beautiful, it is also very functional. I think what I enjoy most is that our kitchen is unique. The cabinets look like fine furniture. Everyone at ULRICH was extremely professional.

  • Deborah Davis and Mark Urman

    We postponed renovating our kitchen for ten years because we heard so many horror stories from friends and neighbors about their experience. Then we met one of your interior designers – she turned our small kitchen into a high-wattage jewel box that delights us every day. ULRICH is a superior company that delivers the best ideas, the best materials and workmanship, and, in the end, the very best kitchen. Thanks you and we would be happy to recommend you to anyone who cares about perfection.

  • Inge & Richard Buchert

    Ulrich built a 300’ addition, created an open concept encompassing the kitchen, dining and living rooms, a hearth room with a vaulted ceiling and fireplace, and a lovely outdoor space for us – all of which looks amazing! From start to finish - with expert design, installation, and project management - the Ulrich team earned our trust and came to feel like family. Even now, after the project is complete, they remain available for any questions or concerns. Ulrich is simply the best of the best!

    It has been our good fortune, and great pleasure to have teamed up with Ulrich, Inc. on numerous renovation projects in our home. Our designer is incredibly talented, gracious, and collaborative. The entire Ulrich team, from the President to the showroom manager, project managers, carpenters, office staff, and crew have consistently made us feel at ease and a top priority, no matter the scope of the project. Ulrich's craftsmanship and attention to detail is unparalleled. Each year our home has grown more beautiful thanks to Ulrich's work and we could not be happier with the results!
