    We all approach renos differently. I am a contractor and have always removed the cabinets to install new flooring. The final decision is made by the homeowner as it does cost more.re and re base cabinets is a relatively quick process.a lot of my work is building kitchens.

    I guess the decision to remove cabinets largely depends on the particular kitchen. If removing cabinets, what do you do about the counter tops? What about tile back splash? I suppose if there's no tile back splash & the counters are just inexpensive p-lam, then it wouldn't be such a big deal.

    If your removing the flooring down to the subflooring, then putting in a new floor, cabinet height shouldn't change any significant amount.

    Exactly my thoughts.

    Bought the toe kick saw at H.F. with a 20 percent off coupon. Renting a toe kick saw was almost as expensive as buying one.
    Thanks for all the suggestions.
