Frequently Asked Questions
Will you work directly with a customer or do we need to have a contractor?
Most of our business comes from contractors. We will however work directly with individuals as well. We can schedule an appointment with you and come out to your home or business to help you work through the design process. We will produce a computer drawing for your approval and them work can begin.
Why should I choose custom cabinetry?
Choosing a custom cabinet gives you the freedom to make your dreams a reality. You are not bound by a preset range of choices for wood, color or style. We can design a cabinet that makes good use of all available space where a non-custom or modular cabinet can only leave you hoping that it works well. In addition, you will not find an off the shelf cabinet that comes close to the quality and workmanship you get from a custom cabinet.
Do your cabinets come finished?
We offer both finished and unfinished (raw wood) cabinets.
What can I expect in terms of quality?
Simply put, you will not find another custom wood cabinet that beats our quality. Period. All our lumber is select or better which means that it is the best of the best. It matches for color and grain and produces the most beautiful, functional and durable cabinets you will ever use.
Do you manufacture and install countertops?
We do sell and install countertops. We build some of our own countertops but work with a variety of manufacturers. We offer countertops made from laminate, granite, and a variety of other solid surface materials.
How does Danner’s Cabinet Shop differ from other custom cabinets makers?
Danner’s Cabinets has been a family owned business for over 40 years. For three generations, we have lived by a few very basic yet undisputable principles: always focus on the customer, if the work isn’t perfect don’t deliver it, and stand behind your work, no matter what.
What can I expect when you deliver the cabinets?
When we deliver your quality custom cabinetry, they will be built exactly to your specifications for measurement, design, shape, hardware and wood choice. We should note, however, that we do not do the finishing, installation or countertops. We will leave that to your contractor so that everything happens according to the overall schedule for your project.
Do you install your own cabinets?
We install approximately 85% of the cabinets we manufacture.
In what ways do you involve your client in the design process?
The client is very involved in the cabinet design. The entire project flows from your vision and everything we do will be based on your initial specifications. Your input is critical to the project and we will not make any final design decisions without first consulting with you. Danner’s Cabinet Shop uses specialized cabinet software to provide our clients with drawings to their specifications. We can draw up the design for you or help you design a cabinet based on your ideas, sketches and measurements.
What is your general approach to cabinet design?
At Danner’s Cabinets we will work with you to determine the look, function and layout of your custom made cabinets. We will counsel you on layouts and uses that we have found are most effective and efficient in our experience. We will work with you to maintain your budget targets and will not sell you something you don’t need if it doesn’t fit into the scope of the project.
