I contacted many different contractors from Angies List and sent them a picture of the Built-in entertainment center in our home and an explenation that I was buying a larger tv and would need a new unit that looked similar.
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
Black was the only one that looked at the picture and noticed that it was built in 3 pieces and suggested that he could rebuild the center piece and then re-paint the unit, which would be substantially cheaper than demolishing and building a whole new one. This is what we decided to do and it came out fantastic. His work was beautiful, he replies right a way to texts and emails and had the honesty and integrity to give us a less expensive option. We will definitely be using him again for a few other things we want to do in our home.

Specific problems include: A. Per the agreement, enclosed and dated May 8, 2014, note that the final payment of $7,220.73 is to be paid upon final cabinet installation, which as of today, September 12, 2014 they are still not completely installed. B.
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, owner of
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, claimed her “designer skills” and that she worked for top builders in the country. She is incompetent; and my husband and I are paying for it. There are many issues that have compounded into huge mistakes that were very costly. She was up front that this was a new business for her, but not up front that she did not know how to do correct measurements; key factor for a cabinet design. The “design” was not well thought out and Ms.
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
did not have the common sense to tell me, her very first customer, that before one orders cabinets, she needs to know specifically which appliances are being purchased. In addition, and more specifically, the standard-size appliances for the cabinets. For example, I found out after-the-fact that the microwave oven standard size is 27”; she made the cabinet size 24” and therefore I had to downsize the microwave. In addition, there is a standard size oven. The cabinet for the
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
/oven is not made for a “standard size oven”. As a result, a half-size wall that was custom built had to be torn down and rebuilt. The electrical was already installed, and electrician needs to return to re-do the entire wall, in order to fit a standard size oven. Otherwise, my other choice was to downsize the oven, smaller than standard size which would not be able to fit a roaster oven; not a choice for us. There is an email dated June 18, stating that the oven would fit. It did not. This wall cost $600 to build; and another $800 to remove and re-build. Three electric outlets were also re-installed and the cost was $150. C. As mentioned above, the design (which I approved, based on supposedly working with a “professional”) was not thought out correctly. The cabinets along the wall to the left of the desk (total 3, with one of those cabinets being a double size) did not properly fit in that area, per the “design“. As a result, the cabinets had to be pulled out, and the wall behind the cabinets had to be re-touched, primed and painted. The trim had to be pulled out, too and re-placed and re-painted. In order to utilize the cabinets already paid for, my installer, my husband and I had to redesign and come up with a plan that we could utilize the cabinets that did not fit with the design. Two of the three cabinets are being moved to my office which was already completed entirely: including the popcorn ceiling removed and ceiling redone, the walls orange-peeled, painted and trim is complete. The cabinets being moved to my office results in additional work: an electric outlet having to be moved, the electrical outlet that was there needed the hole plugged, and that area primed and once again, re-painted. The trim needs to be removed and replaced. Let alone all the clean up that needed to be re-done. The third cabinet is being placed in an area it also was not intended for, although it’s either that or throw it away. The cabinets were expensive, I utilized them as best as I could in order not to waste even more money. With all these problems there are repercussions: I’ve had no kitchen since May; I have $40,000 worth of materials sitting around that are still not installed; the electrician, plumber and contractor have all had delays in their schedules as a result of
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
incompetence. They are having to come back time and time again. In addition, with the cabinets being installed, then removed because of poor design and then re-installed, they are pretty much all damaged. D. The above issues are the issues that on top of the rest that I have already dealt with, is the reason I am disputing the amount of $7,220.73; technically I should add the $7,100 deposit and dispute the entire amount I paid to
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, which was $7,320.73. Wait! I’m not done! Other problems we have had from
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
include: 1.
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, owner, referred an incompetent contractor to start,
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
Homes, who I had to fire due to his incompetence with the first bathroom.
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, owner, stating saying he would give me full days work and did not, a shower faucet being installed and replaced three times, a hole in the $1,000 vanity made unnecessarily, just to name a few of the issues with him. 2 . Pretty much, the person I had doing the work had to custom make the custom made cabinets: A)
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
ordered a 96” cabinet for a 95.5” floor to ceiling that the installer had to cut the bottom off. The installer had a problem making the cabinet fit, and therefore
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
came over to force it to fit. They broke the corner
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
of the cabinet, and the ceiling was damaged when it was already painted and had to be redone. They hid the broken cabinet from me, but the part that is broken is covered by another cabinet. No one ever brought it to my attention; I had to see it for myself. B)
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
constantly talked about her cabinet installer,
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, to do the work; only to find out that
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
is her husband,
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, and “supposed partner” (his name was not listed on the Florida Corporation website, he may have had that updated since I pointed that out to him in May) contact. Per one of
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
comments to me -
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
was never going to share that with me.
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
kept saying we would set up a meeting, and it was never done. Apparently it was not her authority to do this, as this was her husband’s contact, not hers. I have emails to prove this if needed. C) I was informed that they would install the frosted glass in the cabinets, they did not. D) Cabinet handles were included with the agreement. I was never asked the size handles for the cabinets that I would like. She told me which ones I was getting, based on one size handle she showed me. She brought them to me two days after she was paid with my credit card. They were all the wrong size. I spent $869.16 with Lowes getting the proper size handles.
E) There was an incident in my home, when I was alone and
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
and
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
were in my home. I was pointing out all the problems, and told
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
that “Cabinet 101” is knowing what appliances the client is purchasing. Her husband began yelling at me, that it was my fault the cabinets were all messed up - that I kept changing my appliance order. A standard size oven is a standard size oven. I asked them both to leave. F) At one of our very first meetings, I told Ms.
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
I will need a release of
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
signed with every single payment. First, she claimed she did not know what that was. Then, I had to prepare one. Finally, it was a struggle to have Ms.
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
sign the release of
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, even when I was giving her the final payment way ahead of time; even though she and her husband dumped the cabinets and ran, after they received their order and was paid. G) I paid $258.15 for refrigerator panel that had to be re-ordered, because
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
did not order the correct size, and refused to help pay the cost for her mistake. Invoice and copy of payment is attached. H) Without my authorization,
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
added a 40% increase on bathroom tile that I found from another retailer, and let her order directly. She never said her increase would be 40%! Isn’t the average commission increase 15%? I) One of the very first questions I asked
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
when I first met her in February of 2014 is if I could see the design how it would look when done, and she told me “yes”. It as not until another month or so later did she say it is a new program, that she needs to install it and learn how to work it. We went to Home Depot and she had them create the design, without Home Depot knowing that the cabinets would be purchased from
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, a
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
manufacturer who does not stand behind its franchises nor take care of customers like me. J) The contract states that I will not vacate my home; which I had to do and incurred $1,600 in hotel cost for two weeks. K) I attempted to contact
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
Cabinets several times, to advise them of the issues, but they sent me back to
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
or another
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
dealer. Shame on
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
for not supporting any of us. You would think
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
would double check the work of the franchisees, especially someone like
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
and I was her fist customer! They
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
’t have five minutes to check measurements? I was informed that was not their job! WOW!



I hope this information saves someone some valuable time, money and energy.

representative came to our house took measurements, suggested colors and styles to match house's decor and advised us the procedure required to install their slideouts which included adding a vertical divider in all the double door cabinets.
They do no installation but did give some suggestions for the installation of the sink and countertop that worked out well.
They did not give any suggestions for firms who might hang cabinets.
Process took about 7 weeks from first contact to delivery of the finished products. They met their stated schedule.
Overall we were satisfied with the product they provided but it would have been a great help if they had provided a list of installers they work with.

responded to my initial call to request service within half an hour. He came to our house the same day and gave us a price to do the modification. He offered several different modification options and we chose the one that suited our needs. He arrived promptly the next morning and did an excellent job of remodeling the cabinet in about 1-1/2 hrs. We are extremely pleased with the job and would definitely recommend R&R Cabinets. If prompt ,courteous , reasonably priced, service is what you want, call R & R Cabinets!

Owners returned he was able to size up the problem and had the area repaired and back to normal in just a couple days. Without him the opportunity for more damage would have been awful. Knowledgable of insurance processes also.

My husband and I find the professionals at
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
to be knowledgeable and most helpful. They get busy and aren't able to be as prompt as we would like, which is understandable. We will continue to use them for major construction purchases, along with two other hardware suppliers in the area. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
for major renovation/construction projects. But I also would shop prices.

We had a great experience with
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
. He spent time reviewing and recommending different options regarding range hoods, cabinet modifications and islands. He was very patient with our every changing mindset regarding our kitchen upgrades. In the end his professionalism, kind demeanor and willingness to meet our needs sealed the deal for us. He was also very competitive with Home Depot and Lowes. In fact, he undercut both big box stores on value and price. I would definitely hire again for any kitchen or bath remodel.
Thanks

I met
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
about a year ago, when I went to his shop in Gardena. He was nice enough to show me the process from beginning to end. After interviewing several cabinet makers I felt very comfortable in placing my 116 year old kitchen in his professional hands. I was not disappointed. I showed
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
pictures of my dream kitchen and he brought it to life.
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
worked hand in hand with the contractor and he brought in templates so I could visualize where and how things would fit.
In the end I have exactly what I hoped for, a spectacular kitchen. I have had so many compliments on
Augusta Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
's work and I highly recommend him. You will be very satisfied with the end product.
