What to Ask on the Phone
Questions to Ask When Speaking on the Phone to Marin County Cabinetry Companies

As you are interviewing Marin County cabinet makers on the phone, it is a good idea to have a list of questions prepared.

This will keep you on track during the phone interview and will help ensure that you do get the answers you need to make an educated decision about cabinets for your home. Keep a paper and pencil handy to write down the answers from each company. That way you will know which Marin cabinet maker answered each question most reasonably and it may help make it clear which company is the best choice for you.

Use the following questions to get you started:

  • Do the cabinet makers or cabinet stores in Marin County specialize in the type of work you have described? If so, ask them to provide some examples of similar cabinetry design or cabinet installation.
  • Can the cabinetmakers build custom cabinets, garage cabinets, wood cabinets, glass cabinets or wall cabinets? Do they have a specialty, or are they able to build all types of cabinets?
  • What is the Marin County cabinet makers' estimated timeframe for completion of your cabinets?
  • Will the cabinet makers and cabinet companies provide a detailed, written estimate for new kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets or cabinet storage?
  • What materials will the cabinet builder use to create your custom cabinets?
  • Does the price for new cabinets include both parts and labor?
  • What type of warranty do the cabinet makers and cabinet stores provide for their work?
  • Will the Marin cabinet companies and cabinet builders provide a written contract?
  • Has your cabinet company earned and maintained a Diamond Certified rating?
  • How long has the cabinet company been in business or how long has the cabinet maker been involved in building custom cabinetry in Marin County?
