I do not know how many characters this will let me do but I will start by saying that if you need any work done at all that has to do with cabinets or countertops you have got to call
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
. I have had the same contractor for 19 years and I got a bid for him and 2 other contractors and I called doing cabinets not thinking I can afford to have custom made everything for just a little bit more than I was getting bids for things that were mass produced and didn't really fit my needs the bidding process was fast it was there and once we agreed on everything to be done which he was very detailed in made sure he get it right even when I had to make changes and I made several of them use very patient and very kind about it he had told me that it would be 4 to 6 weeks and he had it all done in less than 3 weeks. he and everyone he brought into my home to do work were very professional they were very clean they picked up their mess they did not try and take the extra material with them when they left in the process there were some issues that could not be seen when the project with bid and he major that everything was fixed and done right and this included bringing in plumbers etc. I am actually having him bid on another job right now because everything went so smoothly I know when you're having work done on your bathroom or your kitchen that it is expensive but before you call someone and get something mass produced or something you don't really want because you don't think you can afford it please give him a call first I have no relationship to this company or anyone there I'm not a relative I know no one there so this is the most honest, REAL assessment of him and his company

It took 3 attempts to order and receive the bathroom cabinets we purchased from
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
. Due to errors placing the proper order ( by
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
employees) our cabinets were delayed by 4 weeks, thus our project was delayed by 4 weeks. I have never experienced such poor customer service from a supposedly reputable company. I was reminded by more than one employee how expensive our order had become- expensive for them because they were stuck with the cabinets they ordered in error. After the second delivery of incorrect cabinets, their solution was to change out the doors and face frame of the cabinets. That wasn't satisfactory to me, given we ordered a different type of wood. I asked to speak with the manager- the employee REFUSED to provide me with his name. Fortunately, his name was listed on Angie's List and i was able to contact him. We finally received the cabinets last week. We asked for compensation, ie., a discount due to the repetitive errors. Signature refused to provide one, again, because our order was so expensive for them.
We are remodeling our kitchen next year and I will NOT be using this company ever again. Worst experience ever.

Having been referred to
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
I contacted them for my project. They made the initial visit and took notes on the project and subsequently emailed a proposal. At the visit I was told that even though they were normally 12 weeks out on projects they could get mine in about three weeks because it was small, I was referred by one of their good customers and I have a very tight time line. I returned the signed proposal on 8/11 and did not notice that the 50% deposit was due with it. On 8/19 I called and left a message asking if everything was in order. I got no response. I left similar messages on 9/1 and 9/4. On 9/5 I also sent an email which was replied to on 9/6 stating that they were busy and that I hadn't sent the deposit. It also stated that they had me on their schedule for the first of November, which was 12 weeks from the proposal date. I replied that I was sorry for overlooking the deposit and immediately put it in the mail. I also requested that they have the work done by 10/10 if at all possible as they had originally said they could. I also received a voice mail along the same lines and another email reply that the 1st of November was the best they could do. On 9/12 I received my deposit back with a letter stating basically that they decline the job and we weren't compatible.

I have been drug out by their lack of communication for over a month and now am looking for a reputable cabinet maker to do my custom job before my husband returns from Afghanistan. They have probably made it impossible to get the work done in time for his homecoming.

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.
Brookings 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.
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, owner of
Brookings 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.
Brookings 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
Brookings 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
Brookings 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
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, which was $7,320.73. Wait! I’m not done! Other problems we have had from
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
include: 1.
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, owner, referred an incompetent contractor to start,
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
Homes, who I had to fire due to his incompetence with the first bathroom.
Brookings 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)
Brookings 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
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
came over to force it to fit. They broke the corner
Brookings 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)
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
constantly talked about her cabinet installer,
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, to do the work; only to find out that
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
is her husband,
Brookings 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
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
comments to me -
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
was never going to share that with me.
Brookings 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
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
and
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
were in my home. I was pointing out all the problems, and told
Brookings 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.
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
I will need a release of
Brookings 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.
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
sign the release of
Brookings 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
Brookings 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,
Brookings 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
Brookings 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
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
, a
Brookings 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
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
Cabinets several times, to advise them of the issues, but they sent me back to
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
or another
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
dealer. Shame on
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
for not supporting any of us. You would think
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
would double check the work of the franchisees, especially someone like
Brookings Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
and I was her fist customer! They
Brookings 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.
