Custom Cabinet Making Reviews in Gastonia


arrived promptly to provide an estimate and review the request. Because we planned to cover the fireplace, he expressed some concerns about building the unit because of possible code violations. We assured him the fireplace would not be used and he informed us he could make the cabinet--but we would be responsible for installing it--we agreed. During the follow-up call to obtain the quote--he only provided the quote for half of the job and when asked about the remaining portions of the cabinet---he said he would have to get back to us. He never did!

We hired
on September 14, 2012 to make all new kitchen cabinets, install tile floor, countertop and backsplash. Estimated cost of project was $13,500.00 ($14,000.00 if I purchased an additional cabinet which I cancelled). We gave him 50% on that day ($7,000.00) and $3,500.00 on October 15th, 2012 as agreed on the contract. The completion date was supposed to be November 10, 2012. I really believed
when he assured me he would be finished by the deadline and he told me he didn't have another job that would take him away from getting mine finished on time. I explained to him that I had just finished chemo, mastectomy and radiation and still didn't feel that well so it was extremely important to me to get the work done in a timely manner to be able to use my kitchen. If I had known how long it was going to take, I would never have hired him & I blame my "chemo" brain for thinking his word was good...bad judgment on my part. We visited his shop several times - one visit was to see how much he had done on our cabinets and found he had done very little. He lead me to believe he had a "crew" to help do the work which would have made it faster but the truth was he had one employee. When he didn't get the kitchen finished by the deadline of November 10th, he promised us we would have our kitchen back for our family before Thanksgiving but there were some days he didn't even show up to do any work. From the day of demolition of my kitchen, my husband and I used the back room of our house as a kitchen with a microwave, table and coffee pot for three months. During this time, the dishwasher had leaked and a piece of the floor had rotted out and he patched it. His worker cut through the subfloor leaving a weak spot that would eventually fall through so we had to pay someone else $400.00 to tear out what his employee had done and replace that area of the kitchen floor.
had more excuses than anyone I have ever met and nothing was ever "his" fault. The week of December 14th, 2012, we finally told him to finish our cabinets and leave & we would get our son to install the floor tile and backsplash. He completed our cabinets and countertop within two days but the countertop has scratches all over it and dips where the sanding wasn't done properly. Also, some of the knobs were installed and out of line, some areas were not stained & several cabinets were not made as I had instructed on the contract. On December 14, 2012 he wanted us to pay him $2,000.00 more and my husband agreed to $1,500.00 for a total of $12,000.00 which was more than I would have given him. At that point, the money wasn't important - closure was.
signed the contract as paid in full & left. My son & son-in-law installed the tile and backsplash. Even though my kitchen isn't what I had dreamed of, the day I hired
Clay was the beginning of a nightmare that I will never forget & very thankful it's over. I pray that he doesn't do this to anyone else...
