I have now come across two potential clients that purchase stocked Home Depot cabinets as an actual business practice. They think they’re saving time and money; probably without considering the factors below:
You can imagine that MOST of these things were nicked up BEFORE they even hit the job site. They won’t get prettier the longer they sit there waiting to get installed.
2.) Low quality Laminate
Actually shows the details of this full overlay door quite well; almost as well as the dents and scratches… (sweet finger paint touch up though)
3.) No corner gussets or hanging rails + Terrible assembly =
Just Glue, staples, and hope to hold your cabinet together.
OH WAIT I FOUND THE SCREWS!!!!!:
If nothing else, you can now add some value to your Home Depot contractor: TELL THEM TO BE CAREFUL WHEN THROWING THIS CRAP IN THE TRASH
As shown below, shortsighted thinking is the real obstacle to overcome. There are at least 31 people out there that need our help.
