Finishing System – The finishing system used on our products are designed to ensure the beauty and durability of our cabinetry. State-of-the-art equipment allows precise sanding, filling, and finish coverage of each of our products. It is an extremely sophisticated and environmentally responsible coating that offers durability, ease of cleaning, and water resistance. We use a combination of mechanical systems to bring out the richness, luster, and natural grain definition of the wood, as well as computerized automation to ensure color consistency and surface smoothness. Our Finishing System is a rigorous multi-step process that includes sanding, brushing, cleaning, stain application, computerized oven drying, and a catalyzed topcoat to protect and beautify your cabinets for years to come.
What Does This Mean To You?
Our products are extremely resistant to stains and surface
damage that can be caused by common household chemicals. Our products exceed KCMA standards for resistance to stains like coffee, grape juice, and moisture—all common spills in any kitchen.
How Do You Care For Your Cabinets?
Remove dust from cabinets frequently with a soft lint-free cloth. The cloth may be slightly dampened with water or a spray type dust remover. Wood and laminate cabinet
surfaces may be polished once every few months with a high quality, non-oil based furniture polish. Do not use a paste wax type material. Wax build-up is difficult to remove and will leave a residue that attracts dust and moisture. Polishes containing silicon should not be used. Clean spills immediately. Use a clean cloth and mild soap if necessary. Wipe dry with a clean soft cloth. Do not use detergents, citrus or ammonia based cleaners, steel wool, soap pads, or abrasive cleaners on your cabinets.
Care should be taken that cabinet finishes are not exposed to heat in excess of 174° Fahrenheit. Do not place or mount small appliances beneath your wall cabinets. These appliances (such as coffee makers and toasters) can produce excessive heat, which can damage the finish of your cabinets. Do not expose doors or drawer fronts to heat created from self-cleaning ovens or ranges. A Heat Shield Kit should be used when cabinets are installed or mounted directly next to ovens or ranges.
Drawer Systems – Our cabinets represent the careful selection of woods and white laminated finishes. While every effort is made to match wood grain as closely as possible, no two pieces of wood are exactly alike, even from the same tree. These differences in natural color and grain mean that each piece will respond differently to the finishing materials used. For example, close-grained woods absorb less and will vary in color from more open-grained pieces from the very same tree. It’s these variations that contribute to the beauty and distinction of quality wood products. However, exposure to sunlight, smoke, and chemicals may cause some materials to fade or vary from their original color over time.
This is why cabinets, doors, drawer fronts, and accessories
added at a later date may not exactly match cabinets
installed now. For the same reasons, door samples or
displays may not represent the exact color of cabinets received at the time of shipment. You should also read all cleaning agent instructions carefully before application.
Due to changes that occur from natural and environmental
factors a cabinet is exposed to over its lifetime, we cannot be responsible for variations that occur in the finish of your wood cabinets as they age.
So, enjoy the character of your cabinets. They are truly unique and with proper care will age beautifully for years to come.
