Cabinets are only as good as their installer. The best looking, highest quality cabinets hung crooked never receive compliments. They’re tricky to install and require precision. Homeowners think they can cut costs by hiring a trim carpenter to install cabinets but cabinet installation should be left to a professional cabinet installer.
Ok, most people could hang a cabinet straight but there are other intricacies that go into cabinet installation. It’s easy to end up with small gaps, chips, blemishes or non-flush cabinetry if installation is not properly done. On the extreme end, we’ve heard of cabinets falling off the walls because trim carpenters installed the cabinets into sheet rock rather than studs.
Trim carpenters put the finishing touches on houses, normally installing or repairing baseboards, window trims, door trims and crown molding. They’re usually hired by a general contractor or if you need a quick repair, you can easily find one online. Trim carpenters are great for these small jobs but installing cabinets isn’t a small job.
A professional cabinet installer is specialized in installing cabinets. They’ll be able to tell if a cabinet needs to be squared after delivery, they can fix minor blemishes in the field to expedite installation and are comfortable working directly with designers to keep the installation process stress-free for homeowners. Their finished work is second-to-none. Professional cabinet installers will have clean miters and make sure your cabinet faces, fillers and trim are smooth clean and finished.
We’d love to say every cabinet installation goes off without a hitch but in reality, problems pop up now and again. You’ll be happy you used a professional cabinet installer when adversity hits. They’ll take care of job site fixes as problems arise, no matter who is at fault.
