Quality Materials For Custom Cabinetry

Construction & Contractors Blog

Inferior cabinet materials that have been poorly constructed can compromise the storage of dishware, cutlery, and other kitchen aids. Custom made cabinets that contain plywood boxes, reinforced doors, and quality fasteners will withstand heavy weight loads and will improve the manner in which you store kitchen equipment.

Particle Board Versus Plywood

During the manufacturing of a particle board, wood chips and resin are compressed. An adhesive is used to secure several particle boards together. Particle boards are often used to create a cabinet box. Particle boards can also be used to construct the back of a cabinet. The material is less durable than plywood and is not moisture resistant. Damaged particle boards may bend or become discolored.

Plywood is a durable material. Thin wooden sheets are secured together, to produce one solid plywood panel. Many wood grades are used to create plywood sheets. Each grade will have its own strength rating. The number of layers that are used to create plywood boards may vary. Due to its heat and moisture resistance qualities, plywood can perform well for a long duration. Quality cabinets may each contain a box, a back panel, and a door that is constructed of plywood.

A Front Frame, Doors, And Hardware

Framed and frameless cabinets can be customized. Products that contain a front frame will have strips of wood running along the outer edges of the cabinet. The door of a cabinet will be secured to the frame. Hardware that is used to secure a door will be driven deeply into the framework. A frameless cabinet will possess a more streamlined design. The omittance of a frame will require that a cabinet door is attached directly to a cabinet box.

If handcrafted cabinets are going to be ordered, a consumer can request that a woodworker uses relatively thick pieces of plywood to construct each cabinet. Sturdy doors that contain soft-close hinges and door glides will be easy to open and close and will be relatively quiet. Some manufacturers assemble cabinetry prior to shipment. The pre-assembly of a cabinet will guarantee that it operates properly.

Prefabricated parts that are not assembled during the manufacturing process can also be ordered through a custom cabinet supplier. Upon ordering a cabinet style and selecting the size of the cabinetry, wooden pieces will be cut and sanded. Labeled pieces will be shipped out to a consumer. It will be the consumer's responsibility to assemble and install the cabinetry.

A Great Build

A lot of contracting work takes time — sometimes weeks, sometimes months, and sometimes years. As such, when contractors finally get finished with a project, they often like to step back and take a good look at what they've created. This is their time to be proud, and they certainly deserve to be. When we step back and take a similar look at the work of contractors, we feel awe. We may not have built the thing, but we understand the work that went into it. After you read some articles on this website, you'll have a good understanding of the work, too.
