What is the average cost of a kitchen remodel? Who do I ask for a kitchen estimate? When choosing to remodel a kitchen, most homeowners do not realize the amount of choices they need to make. It is best to be as educated as possible on all of the different materials and styles before even choosing to remodel your kitchen. At Mihalko’s General Contracting, we can educate you on materials, styles, colors and all the important factors that go into choosing materials for your kitchen. One such factor? Kitchen sinks.

Kitchen Sink Options

Stainless Steel.  Stainless is the most popular material for kitchen sinks. Being both a heat and stain resistant material, stainless steel is one of the best sink options to go with if you are on a budget and looking for the most bang for your buck. Stainless steel sinks come in a variety of styles and sizes, as well as different finishes.

Composite Granite. A very durable material that comes in a variety of colors and styles, composite granite sinks are good looking and fairly resistant to water marks and scratches. A popular choice when choosing composite granite is dark color composite granite. This will often help to hide unsightly food and particles.

Fire Clay. Some people are set on having a white kitchen sink. If you’re one of these people, then fireclay is your best option. Highly resistant to scratches, staining and chipping, fireclay sinks clean up very easily and are known to be aesthetically pleasing.

Cast Iron. Like a cast iron bathtub, a cast iron sink is a popular material with a traditional look. Extremely durable and heavy, cast iron sinks are bright, glossy and come in a variety of colors. Cast iron sinks are difficult to chip and easy to clean.

Before asking ‘how much does it cost for a kitchen?’ it’s important to do your research. Knowing the materials, styles, colors and other factors that go into remodeling a kitchen will highly influence the remodeling price range. When it comes to learning about your options, it’s important to talk to a contracting family you can trust. It’s important to talk to a contracting company that has been serving its neighbors in the Johnstown PA, Latrobe PA and Altoona PA area for over 34 years.
