Kitchen Fitting Question
Plastering during kitchen fitting
We are currently having a kitchen fitted following a knock through from the dining room. The walls were in a bad way following a leak from the upstairs bathroom.
We had originally asked for all walls to be plastered and made good prior to fitting, and for the hardboard floor to be removed. Units have been fitted over the floor, and plastering is ongoing - fit the units, plaster the visible wall. The plumbing work for the washing machine/dishwasher has not been done yet.
Is this the usual way that kitchens are fitted? I would have thought that plumbing and plastering would have been completed first. We are thinking of asking them to pull the units out and to prepare the room properly - would this be a reasonable request?
plumbing first, then plastering and note all plaster must be dried out before the kitchen is fitted due to high moisture content in the air. solution for you would be a portable dehumidifier. Doors can warp and twist on the kitchen apparently.
