Frequently asked questions
How do I clean my new cabinets?
Your cabinetry has been finished with a conversion varnish top coat. This top coat offers superior chemical and common kitchen stain resistance while maintaining color and sheen. Conversion Varnish top coat requires minimal care and cleaning. We recommend periodic cleaning with a mild detergent and water solution to remove dirt, dust, and grease that buildup with routine use. Dampen a soft non-abrasive cloth and wipe the entire exterior surface of the cabinetry. Dry with a soft cloth. Never use a wet cloth that allows water to run down the cabinetry and always dry the cabinetry immediately if water is spilled onto the surface. Care should be taken not to use abrasive cleaners, ammonia, or any other type of harsh chemical. These cleaning agents may cause discoloration, scratching, marring, and dulling of the finish. We also discourage the use of furniture polishes and waxes as they may leave a film on the surface that attracts dust and dirt. These polishes may also cause an irregular or blotchy appearance because they are unable to stand up to many common kitchen stains.
What type of varnish is on my cabinets?
What materials are used to contruct my cabinets?
- The face frames are solid wood and are joined together using dowels and glue
The cabinet boxes are constructed of 3/4" Maple plywood sides, tops and bottoms. The backs are 1/4" Maple plywood with solid wood hanger rails.
The shelves are fully adjustable and are made from 3/4" Maple plywood.
The doors, drawer fronts and exposed ends are are all solid wood. If we paint, we use Maple

Most all of our other cabinet acessories come with "Blum" soft close hardware as well, which also has a lifetime warranty.
How do I place an order?
Fill out the forms from the "Contact" tab and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then create a sketch and a quote. If you accept the quote, we will need 1/3 of the total paid. We will then schedule an appointment with you to come to your house and get accurate measurements. We can make any changes needed at that time.
How long does it take to install my cabinets and what is included?
Typically it takes 1 day to install a kitchen. Sometimes ,though, additional time is needed. And sometimes we unable to finish because of other work that does not involve us needs to be completed before we can complete the installation.
What is the counter top ordering and installation process?
Laminate and Cultured Marble/Granite (if installed with your vanity or kitchen) will be installed by us on the same day we install the cabinetry. Granite and Quartz is templated and installed by other companies. We will set up the template appointment usually within a week of when the cabinets are installed. Then the crew will come to install 2-3 weeks after that. So it can take 3-4 weeks after the cabinets are installed before you get your stone installed.
What is the difference between standard overlay, full overlay and inset?
Please study the picture. You can also google the types to get a bigger perspective. Standard Overlay is the least expensive while full overlay and full inset cost about the same.
When is payment expected?
To place an order we need about 1/3 down. The remainder is expected at the time of delivery or installation. However, if there are stone counters still to be installed, that part of the payment is not due until those are installed.
