How to Find the Best Cabinet Companies in San Bernardino County 

New cabinets improve the appearance and resale value of a home. If you're making updates to your kitchen, those old cabinets, even if functional, are not going to match up to the rest of the design. Or getting only new cabinets can make an old kitchen suddenly look new even when you haven't changed anything else, since they're the main focal point for the room and take up a lot of real estate.

When it comes to new cabinets, know that licensed cabinet contractors in San Bernardino County are those with a C-6 license from the state of California to do new cabinet installation, including kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets, or cabinets for offices or retail properties.  If the cabinets are only one part of a larger project, then the contractor still needs a license, but it needn't  be the C-6 license for cabinet contractors.  Additionally, custom cabinet makers in San Bernardino County need not have any contractor's license as long as they are not doing the installing, and are only cabinet builders or cabinet dealers.

If the cabinet contractors have employees, they're required to have workers' compensation insurance for your protection. If a worker is injured on your property and the contractor doesn't have this insurance, you could be liable to pay for their injuries and your homeowner's insurance may not cover those costs. 

Cabinet contractors in San Bernardino County are not legally required to have liability insurance; however, all cabinet contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 designation have general liability insurance coverage which reimburses their customers in the event of any damages, in addition to passing all other requirements for certification as Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 such as survey calls to customers, hiring only documented workers, verified license and workers' comp insurance, clean complaint record, and more.



Cabinetmakers in San Bernardino County are Highly Skilled
Prefabricated discount cabinets at the chain home improvement stores seem to have a lower price but may not save you money.   Those prefab cabinets made from fiberboard, MDF and particleboard aren't as durable as real wood cabinets, so you'll have spend money again to replace them sooner.  And they may not save much money even at the outset when you consider the installers have to spend time trying to fit them in because they weren't custom made for your exact space, so they can take days longer to install than customers expect. Those unexpected installation costs on cheap cabinets from a home improvement store can add up to what it would cost to buy custom made cabinets in the first place.


Cabinet Contractors in San Bernardino County Offer a Variety of Materials and Design Styles
When it comes to custom cabinets, ask the cabinet contractor about the characteristics and performance of different wood choices. It can be difficult to know what to expect based on only a tiny wood sample. For example, cherry wood will often darken as it ages, and it can have spots that you can't take out. Maple may yellow with age. In both cases, these may still be great choices for you but the best cabinet contractors in San Bernardino County should tell you about these issues so your choice is an informed one and you're still happy with the new cabinets for years or even decades to come.

Cabinetmakers in San Bernardino County offer many materials and styles. They can work with hardwood, unfinished lumber, Formica, veneer sheets, or plywood. For more opulent tastes, cabinetmakers can even build with Granitex, marble, ceramic tile, granite, or laminate. Cabinet builders can also make wine rack lattices, vanities, valances, and even change the surface of your appliances to match the new cabinets. They can apply different decorative accents such as marble tops, wood wainscots, combination edges, simulated distressing, louvered doors, molding profiles, or fluted and beaded moldings.

If you prefer something more creative, cabinet makers can stylize kitchen cabinets and cabinet doors for more design intricacy. They can set slab & batten doors, perform center panel face routing, tile and face routing, or mount the doors with a regular overlay or a flushed inset. They can add certain finishing work such as with finger pulls, light bars, decorative pegs, miter cuts, mirrors, hinges, or dovetail drawer boxes.  Ask the cabinet contractors about all the decorative and design options available. Many custom cabinet makers in San Bernardino County can show you computer visualizations of the new cabinets so you can see how all the different options would look when they are finished and installed, to help make your decision easier.

Cabinet Refacing in San Bernardino County
There may be reasons to consider cabinet refacing as an alternative to new cabinets, but not all cabinet refacing companies in San Bernardino County are the same. Some use cheap looking peel-and-stick applications.  But there are some good cabinet refacing companies that use a thick veneer and miter the corners of the cabinets so the edges of that veneer are not exposed.  Or cabinet refurbishing may include replacing the cabinet doors and updating the moulding style for a new look.



Some Providers of Cabinets in San Bernardino County CA Are Much Better Than Others
The Prime Buyer's Report lists these companies for cabinets in San Bernardino County: L&T Industries Inc, Norm Tessier Cabinets Inc, Master Brand Cabinets Inc, S&H Cabinets & Mfg Inc, K&Z Cabinet Co Inc, David Bertino Mfg, Mueller Turner Enterprises Inc. Other providers or installers of cabinets in Chino, Fontana, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga and San Bernardino CA that might still be in business include: .

 

 

Working with Cabinetmakers and Cabinet Companies in San Bernardino County 

Step 1: Know What You Want When It Comes to Home Cabinetry
In order to explain what type of cabinetmaking work is involved, you must first explore your options and settle on a rough idea of your preferences. Research styles and materials that you can present to a potential cabinet contractor or cabinet showroom.

Step 2: Answer Questions & Take Notes When Talking With Cabinet Makers
Once you have presented a general idea of what you'll need, let the cabinetmaker or cabinet store ask questions. Take note of what concerns each cabinet contractor about your job. How detailed are the cabinetmaker's questions? How feasible does he think your ideas are? Does he seem prepared to stay true to your design preferences? Does the cabinet showroom staff understand what kind of bath cabinets or kitchen cabinets you are looking for? Do they have some in stock, or will they have to create custom cabinets?

Step 3: Ask Questions & Take Notes
Once you've laid out your basic design preferences, ask some questions to establish the San Bernardino County cabinet contractors' qualifications. Here are some examples to guide your interview.

• How long have the cabinet installers been in business or how long has the cabinet maker been making custom cabinetry?

• How many cabinets have the cabinet companies completed in San Bernardino County CA?

• Do the cabinet makers or cabinet stores specialize in the type of work you've described? If so, will they show you examples of similar cabinetry design or cabinet installation.

• Can the cabinet contractor give you names and numbers of past customers who had the same kind of cabinets done who you can call as references? (All cabinet installers or cabinet makers bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their customer references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Can the cabinetmakers build custom cabinets, garage cabinets, wood cabinets, glass cabinets or wall cabinets? Do they have a speciality, or are they able to build all types of cabinets?

• What is the cabinet makers' estimated timeframe for completion of your cabinets?

• Will the cabinet makers and cabinet companies provide a detailed, written estimate for new kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets or cabinet storage that is completely itemized, including the amount of material being quoted, the type of fixtures such as the hinges and rails, product brand names and item numbers? (This is important because cheap cabinet installers in San Bernardino County often only seem cheap because they are using lower quality material that will cost you more in repairs and premature replacement.)

• Do they see an obvious change you could make to your specifications that would significantly lower the cost of the estimate, and if so, what would you be giving up in performance? Similarly, do they see a big gain in performance or visual appeal that can be gained for just a little bit more money?

• Does the cabinet contractor have a showroom where you can see different samples of materials and finishes? If not, will the cabinet contractor accompany you to a cabinet showroom to do that, or bring multiple samples to your home?

• Does the new cabinets price include both parts and labor?

• Does the cabinet installer give a written guarantee on their labor, aside from any manufacturer's warranty. If so, what does it cover and for what time period?

• Will the cabinet companies and cabinet builders provide a written contract?


• Can the cabinet contractor vouch that all employees sent to your property are legal to work in the U.S.? (All cabinet contractors in San Bernardino County bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

Will they show you proof of liability insurance and workers' comp? (All cabinet contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)


• Does the cabinet retailer use only their own employees for the installation, or do they hire subcontractors, and if so, what are the names of those companies so you can research them?


When you've chosen the best cabinet contractors in San Bernardino County CA for you, make sure they are actively licensed as contractors by the state of California as required by law, if they are to perform as cabinet installers. (All cabinet contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their license verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

 

 

Tips About Cabinets in San Bernardino County 


Choose the Best Cabinet Contractor in San Bernardino County CA For Your Specific Needs.

You don't have to hire the first cabinet maker you can reach. Woodworkers and cabinet contractors have different styles and abilities, and you want be sure the cabinet maker is capable of fulfilling your design preferences for kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets and storage cabinets. 

Know What You Want from the Cabinet Makers and Installers.
Ultimately, you'll get the best cabinetry results from a well-communicated plan with your cabinet company. Prepare measurements of the area intended for the cabinets, including any appliances, outlets, etc. Knowing these considerations ahead of time means that you will be able to measure how well each prospective cabinetmaker is suited and ensures that each cabinet maker will be quoting the same project. You may then better judge which cabinet builder gives you the best responses to your consistent description.

Shop Around for the Best Kitchen Cabinets and Bathroom Cabinets.
You should familiarize yourself with several cabinet builders and cabinet makers before signing on to anything. But remember, price is not the only concern. When you get several estimates it will help you determine which cabinetmaker exhibits the best style and aptitude for the exact cabinetry design and custom cabinets you're looking for.

Document Everything When Agreeing to New Cabinetry.
Make sure that your choice of cabinet maker in San Bernardino County provides you with a written description of the work, pricing and timeframe for completion. Good cabinet companies will put all the details in writing so there are no unanswered questions. You can never be too thorough with your record keeping when it comes to putting in new custom cabinets in your home.

Make Sure Time Frames Match Before Installing New Cabinets.
Particularly with private cabinetmakers, the length of the project can vary at the cabinetmaker's convenience. So if you have a deadline (especially if it's a gift or you have appliance installations planned around your new cabinets), make sure your cabinet builder can deliver the work punctually.

 


Make Sure Your Cabinet Makers are Listening.
From the start, it should be clear that your cabinet maker is listening to the particulars you require. If your cabinet designer seems to discount your preferences at any point in the custom cabinet project, he's not the one for you. Ask when you have the slightest doubt about how a job will be handled. There may be decisions that you can make that will help the cabinetmaking job go more smoothly. In the end, the only way to get what you want is to make it clear to your cabinet maker and cabinet company.

Check the Cabinet Company's Work.
Before you install your new cabinets or otherwise accept your cabinetmaker's finished product, approve his work. Check for scratches or ill-fitting parts. Make sure all terms of the initial agreement have been met. In the end, you shouldn't have to settle for shoddy workmanship on new custom cabinets.
