Frequently Asked Questions
What is Custom ?
Our Custom built-in means using measurements taken from your home and converting them into a useable design with features you have requested. We do not use "Stock" cabinets and add fillers to make them fit your space Sometimes referred to as "Customized Cabinetry" Our cabinets are custom built to fit to your space & design
What is MDF?
MDF stands for Medium Density Fiberboard
Can I get a custom color ?
We will computer match your color chip and it will be as close to the original chip you provide as possible but our Cabinet paint has different properties from a Latex or an oil based paint so an exact match may not be possible.
How do I prepare for my appointment?
Have a budget in mind.
Make a wish list of things you have seen while looking around our site or have pictures available for us to review with you
Do you have a showroom?
Our website is our showroom.
When can I expect to hear from you?
We pride ourselves in responding quickly. We hear many horror stories about contractors not returning phone calls. We will be in touch with you either the day you call or the following day to set up an appointment.
We cover every facet of the business so if I am not in the office I may be in the shop, or we may be on an appointment or doing an installation. It is just the two of us & a woodshop full of specialized equipment.
How long is the process?
This can vary depending on the complexity of the design but normally you can figure your unit will be installed in about 3 months .from date of signed contract.& a 50% deposit. but sometimes things can and do go wrong.
The cabinet below will have completely dry ( 2 -4 days before it can be sanded down hopefully not burning completely through the prime coats and then it can be repainted. As you can imagine this can add several days to a couple of weeks if it needs to be re-primed.
How will I know how things are progressing with my cabinets?
I periodically email you a link to view your unit as it moves through the processes.
Example: Projects pg. (Click on link to see what is happening now in the shop)
How much will my unit run ?
The bottom line is really up to you. ( Have a budget)
Visit our "OPTIONS "pg. to view possible features you might want to use
