Installation of Cook tops and Wall Ovens are based on the location requirements and are quoted on a case-by-case basis. In some instances, a pre-installion measure may be required to assure proper fitment, this service is available for an additional fee.



Be careful of Free Installation offers, often there are hidden costs such as a delivery charge, which would normally be free. In the case of Costco, while installation is free it is often performed by a third party, which must be scheduled in addition to the delivery. Thus, you have a delivery day and an installation day to schedule, which may be 1-2 weeks apart. (!) Costco does not remove existing Dishwashers or OTR Microwaves.



When purchasing a new appliance be sure to ask for the final installed price as these charges vary among the major retailers. The Home Depot is very competitive on installed pricing and stands behind all of our installations with a 1 year installation guarantee.


Don't forget an extended warranty, Home Depot offers the most comprehensive extended warranty's in the industry. We offer the broadest protection at a very competitive price, ask your sales associate for details.
