Congratulations! You’ve taken the first step in building or remodeling your home. We’re glad you’re considering Magnolia Cabinets for your cabinet and countertop needs. Building and remodeling alike can be stressful. Let us help you make your project smooth and stress-free. Here’s how it works.
If you’re building a house, it is best to bring us a set of plans for your house as soon as possible. From there we can get some information from you about the style of cabinets you like and the type of countertops you’d really like to go with on our specifications sheet. Once we have the essential information we can create a drawing of your kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, or any other room that your may want cabinets and countertops in. Once the drawings are complete, we will also have an estimate to go over. Usually, after the drawings are complete we like to set up a face to face meeting with you to look at the drawings and answer any questions you may have or add in any edits to the look or layout of the cabinets. After you are happy with your drawings, it is time to put a deposit down to ensure that your cabinets and countertops will be delivered on time. We are very blessed to have tons of wonderful customers so we stay pretty busy. Magnolia Cabinets requires a 50% deposit up front and then the balance will be due after cabinet installation. You will have to have your balance paid in full before the countertops can be installed. After you give us a deposit and signed off on our approval and specifications sheets, you are nearing the end. Once your house is framed and all of the rooms are defined, all you will have to do is give us a call and let us know that your house is ready to be measured and we will have someone out to measure as soon as possible. After final measurements are taken, we usually like to sit down with you one more time and make sure any concerns or questions are addressed. The next step is installing your cabinets. We will give you an estimated install date from the beginning, but we will also call and schedule an exact install date. The same day the cabinets are installed we take exact measurements for the countertops and will begin cutting on them as soon as your balance is paid. Once we start cutting on the countertops, depending on the size of your project we usually have them installed within a week. Once everything is installed, we like to go over everything with you one more time to make sure there are no “punch list” items we need to address. If there are some of those items, Don’t fret, we will take care of you! Last and final step, Enjoy your new home and your new custom cabinets!
If you’re remodeling your home the process is very similar with just a few minor differences. Your first step would need to be to give us a call and set up a time for someone to come to your home and take measurements and discuss what the overall scope of the work is going to be. We will need to obtain some information from you during this meeting that will help us get a more accurate drawing and cost estimate. We will have a specifications sheet with us that we will begin to fill out together that just outlines the style of cabinets you like, the type of countertop, and other small details that allow us to give an accurate quote. After our meeting at your home, we will come back to the shop and being creating a computer drawing with a cost estimate. The next step is to set up a meeting at our shop to review and make any change and edits to your drawing. Once the drawings are to your liking, it is time to put down a deposit. After we receive a 50% deposit from you, your cabinets will be on the schedule and an estimate install date can be given. Once we are closer to the estimated install date we will be able to provide you with an exact date. Once the cabinets are installed we can begin cutting you countertops after your balance is paid in full. Once the countertops are installed we will do a walk through in which we can make sure you are completely satisfied with your cabinets and countertops. Then the last thing is for you to enjoy your freshly remodeled home!
Before filling out the House Plan Submission Form,
Check out these links to decide on your type of cabinet finish and countertop.
When are my cabinets considered to be on the schedule?
Your cabinets are considered on the schedule when we have received a deposit, which is 50% of your grand total price.
Are your cabinets made out of solid wood?
Our cabinets are built with hardwood faces and hardwood plywood sides and decks.
What type of drawer glides are included in my price?
Standard white epoxy coated 3/4 extension drawer glides are factored into your price already. You have the option to go with heavier duty full extension ball bearing or heavy duty full extension soft close ball bearing glides with a small up-charge.
When I pay my deposit is everything I picked out set in stone?
You can make changes to your project at any time as long as a signed and dated change order is filled out at our showroom. Changes can be made up until the point that the cabinets are on the shop floor and construction has begun.
When is the final payment due?
Final payment is due after cabinets are installed. You must be paid in full before your countertops are installed.
What type of finish do you use on your cabinets?
We use water white conversion varnish finish. It is a very durable interior finish and does not have a tendency to yellow over time.
What is the difference between marble, granite, and quartz?
While all of these countertops are stone, marble, and granite are a natural stone and quartz is a man-made product. Marble is the sofest of these stones and is very pretty with more of a swirl-type of look, but because of it's softness it has a tendency to scratch and wear more easily. Granite is a harder stone than marble and has more of a speckled look or can have lots of veins to it as well. Quartz is the hardest of the three and is a man-made product. It can be very consistent from slab to slab unlike some granite and marbles. Some is made to look like marble and others may have other various swils, specks, or veins in it.
