This project was a little different from my usual projects. The client, who I have done work for in the past, choose to utilize in stock cabinets that arrive at the job knocked down and need to be assembled. The main benefit of this product line is time. When you order cabinets ready made from a mainland manufacturer it can take from 6 to 8 weeks to arrive at the job site. I do not really like using these kind of cabinets as they are not as well designed or sturdily built as ready to use cabinets.
They are also made of particle board and vinyl veneers. There are no face frames and the doors are solid wood. The drawers and toe kicks are poorly designed in my opinion.
I am afraid that they will not hold up to heavy use and will need to be modified later in order to prevent premature replacement.
I have torn out dozens of particle board cabinets through out the island and they just don't hold up.
I have developed a technique that will improve the quality and special care must be taken during assembly and installation to get a serviceable product.
The product itself is about 25% of the price of made to order cabinets but there are very few options available. You will spend a little more for the assembly in addition to the usual installations costs. So if you are short on time and willing to discuss and pay for some upgrades that i have developed then you can save time with this product line.
If i am asked to give my honest opinion a would advise against using them. However i have used them on three different jobs over the last two years.
