Cabinets: Custom versus Pre-fabricated/High-end versus Standard
EVERLAST Construction specializes in cabinet re-facing or restoration. Purchasing a new cabinet can be expensive so re-face instead of replace.

There is less clutter rather than tear down all your existing cupboards.

The company employs skilled workers who have the capability to highlight kitchen cubbyholes and providing a glossy finish. Shiny accents can also add appeal to your cabinet.
With customized cabinets, homeowners can expect the exact design, size and materials of their preferences. Customers have control over the features and style of the cabinets. The manufacturer follows exact specifications of the owner. That is why custom units command a higher price. It may even take longer to finish because craftsmen build from scratch. The made to order unit is generally designed and made manually. Costs depend on the required labor, pattern, material, finish, and features. More personalized motifs will of course be more expensive.
On the other hand, pre-fabricated items also have a couple of advantages such as being easy to find and install. This type of cabinets is cheaper compared to personalized units. However, its major downside is lack of quality. Pre-fabricated cabinets usually do not meet a customer’s actual specifications. Clients also do not have any maintain over quality of materials used. Pre-manufactured cabinets are perfect for kitchens with standard shapes.
Homeowners also have a choice between top of the line or ordinary cabinets. These high-quality products are also pricey but you can expect them to be exquisite durable with very reasonable warranty terms. Set a budget for high-end cabinets since even small sideboards can cost a fortune. Look for the best manufacturers that offer premium units at affordable prices.
