I wanted to ask how much a fair price for four custom radiator covers would be for a manhattan apt. We are currently working with a contractor whose cabinet guy said it would cost $6500 to do four covers. The covers are wall to wall with cabinet storage and only painted. No marble countertops. Also, one of the covers is just a plain cover with no shelves or storage and low down to floor bc it accompanies window of balcony.
lol insane. Go check out TransformHome.com , they have custom covers.
to think in some countries they build entire houses for $6500
I know I will get posts thinking I am crazy but $6,500 for 4 cover wall to wall is very inexpensive. I do not know what finish is being used but just for example, if you build a custom cover that is 10 feet long with storage there are some millshops that would charge $6,500 for one, thats right one unit. The one I use would probably be around $3,600 for one.
If it is made just to be painted on site then it would be cheaper but to me that is a very fair price
call little wolf cabinet shop--they will charge you a fair price, and their work is clean and good
too many variables to assess you situation
Little Wolf is great but they do not finish, they build cabinets and install, you then have them painted onsite. They are still very nice but it depends on what you want them to look like.
Primer is correct. If you're talking ONLY radiator cover boxes then yes, your quote would be insane. However, for wall-to-wall custom built-ins that also happen to be radiator covers? Your quote makes sense. Could you get it cheaper? Probably, but don't expect to see a major discount from where you are now.
