Frequently Asked Questions
Check out some of our most frequently asked questions about cabinets below. If you don’t see the question and/or answer you need, please contact us or call us at 808-873-8800.
Are your cabinets all wood?
All of our products are mostly all wood, with the exception of certain elements that cannot be done in solid wood or plywood for quality purposes. Our face frames, most doors, & drawer boxes are solid wood, the carcass boxes are 1/2″ plywood, & the shelving is 3/4″ plywood.
Some areas that will not be solid wood or plywood are:
- Painted Cabinets which have an MDF center panel (industry standard) for quality purpose
- Slab doors which have an MDF core with wood veneering surrounding the entire outside (industry standard to avoid warping)
- Our full MDF Door Styles which are specific doors chosen by clients wanting a full MDF door.
- All center panels on the “Classic” Series are MDF with a Real Wood veneer (you can upgrade to Iconic & select Reverse Raised if you would like solid wood center panels)
- Finished panels & cabinet boxes with finished interiors (glass doors) are made with an engineered plywood which will have layers of plywood/plywood cross-bands & MDF under the real wood veneer for a smooth veneer application; we have samples of this to see in our showroom
We DO NOT have any particle board in any of our products.
What is your turn around time for a quote?
1-3 days is our turn-around time for cabinet quotes, depending on the size of your space & the complexity of the design. We may even be able to do the quote in the same day if it is simple.
How do I get a quote?
To give you a quote, we need dimensions. You can: 1.) Download our How to Measure Guide and take the measurements yourself 2.) Have your contractor measure or 3.) Contact Us if you are interested in a bid for our sister company, MF Construction, to complete your project. Then you can send us the dimensions to work up a quote.
Do you offer a site measure service?
If you are interested in having our sister company MF Construction complete your project, we do offer a site measure for $100 + tax. This is a non-refundable fee; however, we will credit this fee toward your purchase of cabinets. You can call us at 808-873-8800 or Contact Us to start this process. If you have our sister company measure and you choose another contractor, we do not assume responsbility for our dimensions. The contractor you choose will need to confirm dimensions or provide new ones. This will confirm that the contractor who performs the work for your project knows what is being ordered and the dimensions of the space the cabinets are ordered for, which is based on the work they are performing. Plese call us if you have any questions about this process. We are here to help and want your project to go smoothly 🙂
