Cabinets-The Foundation of Your Kitchen

My contractor says he can build cabinets at a lower price that are just as good. Can he?

Typically, the answer is no.

 A major factor is the quality of the finish.  When cabinets are built in the home, you can expect two coats of paint and a topcoat.  A factory cabinet, depending on the selection’s made, may have both hand wiping, machine finishing tools and multiple baking cycles between finishing processes to ensure the quality and durability of the finish.  Last, but not least is the Warranty. Most contractors offer a 1-2 year warranty while the products we offer carry a Limited Lifetime Warranty to the original homeowner.

Other factors to take into account are the type and quality of wood, box and drawer construction, interior features such as soft-close/full-extension drawer glides in addition to the many interior features most homeowners expect in today’s kitchens. 

What is the difference between factory built and job-built cabinetry?

The simple answer is quality, precision, customization, functionality and warranty.  Quality of finishes and consistency of construction cannot be matched in a home due to the uncontrolled environment

What is the difference between Framed and European Frameless construction?

Framed cabinets have a face frame attached to the sides, tops & bottoms whereas European Frameless cabinets only have sides, tops & bottoms allowing full and easier access to the interiors of your cabinets.  European Frameless cabinetry is definitely the popular choice for today’s consumers.
