Frequent Questions

The following is a list of the most common questions we hear when clients sit down for their first design consultation. Brief answers are given for each question which may help you. We know that you will probably have many more questions, which we will answer during the design consultation process. Feel free to contact us if you have anything you would like to address.

What about payment?

We require a 50% deposit before we begin placing orders for items with an additional payment when installation begins. The final balance is due when the project is complete.

What can I do myself to help cut costs?

How much you can or should do depends on your abilities and knowledge of construction and remodeling. You should definitely be able to remove your old cabinets, take up old flooring and handle trash removal. You may also want to paint or wallpaper on your own. We would suggest that you let the pros handle plumbing and appliance hook-ups. Sometimes, if you try it on your own, you may violate building codes or accidentally invalidate a manufacturer warranty. We also recommend that you let a professional installer put your new cabinets in so that they look their best.

Why do you offer the cabinetry products that you do?

The lines we sell – Merillat, Quality Cabinets and Kraftmaid – offer a homeowner everything they could want to build from a simple laundry room to a custom project. We believe that it is important for Statewide Cabinets to represent a full spectrum of cabinetry to make sure we have the correct quality products for your needs. These product lines have demonstrated consistent quality and durabilty that we feel is important.

How long will an installation take?

Every project is unique, so the time for each project may vary. The removal of existing cabinets and installation of the new ones can generally be done in two to three days. More complicated kitchens can take a few weeks to install. The final precise measurements for countertops can only be made once the cabinets are installed. The countertops can then be finalized and installed.

What information should I bring to the consultation?

Bring as little or as much information as you like. We will discuss aspects such as design, tastes, needs, timeline and your financial expectations. If you are able to give us a rough estimate of the space we will be working with, that would be great and it will help our design specialists give you more accurate information. Every piece of information helps, from rough measurements or drawings, to magazine clips and photos.
