Why No One Talks About Counters Anymore

Hiring A Cabinet Maker

Professional cabinet makers are aware that quality is the foundation stone of their profession. They acknowledge that if they can’t do high quality work, they shouldn’t waste your time. They also know that if a product is made too fast with poor results, no one will remember how fast it was made, but they’ll remember the bad workmanship.

Doing your research ahead of time and asking for referrals from friends or colleagues allows you to perform a better analysis of your prospects. This process helps you find a good contractor.

At the end of the day, you should choose a cabinet maker who will:

Uses good quality materials, hardware and construction processes

Produce impressive craftsmanship

Here are questions you should ask a cabinet maker during the interview:

Will all of the cabinetry work be performed by you or will you order them somewhere else?

The answer must be yes, considering no professional craftsman would risk destroying their reputation by buying mass produced products.

Is it possible to obtain some references from your previous clients and talk to them?

The contractor must have a good list of referrals that he can point you to for testimonials of his work.

If he hesitates or comes up with all kinds of excuses, be careful.

Can I look at some work you’ve done earlier than five years ago?

This is a crucial question, knowing that most cabinet makers only promote their new projects.

If you get the opportunity to see some of their work from the past, you will feel more confident that your prospective contractor creates durable cabinets.

Do you handle your own finishing?

Some cabinet makers do their own finishing while others contract this and other parts of the job to a third party.

If they have good quality control, this should not be a problem.

Are you only into building cabinets or do you offer assistance with other projects as well?

A high-quality professional cabinet maker will give you an affirmative response. That indicates that you can complement other projects with your chosen cabinet maker and have everything in one roof.

Can I drop by at your showroom and workshop?

Reputable cabinet makers usually don’t have an issue with this, but don’t think they will have a very tidy working area. Instead, view their workplace as a display of their skills and expertise. In fact, creative people rarely work in perfect order, so as long as the workmanship is good, this shouldn’t be an issue.
