Is StarMark Cabinetry framed or frameless cabinetry?
StarMark Cabinetry is framed cabinetry. We build both overlay cabinets and inset cabinets, and both styles are wooden framed cabinets.
How thick are the sides of your cabinets?
Depending on the side panels that you choose for your cabinets, they will be a half-inch thick or three-quarter inches thick.
Can your cabinets hold up granite counter tops?
Yes. Depending on the side panels that you choose for your cabinets, the side panels will be a half-inch thick or three-quarter inches thick. Both thicknesses are more than enough to hold up granite counter tops.
Do you use particle board?
No. There is no particle board in our cabinets. We use engineered wood and hardwood plywood.
Are your cabinets made in America?
Yes. We build our cabinets in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Do you reface cabinet doors or cabinetry?
StarMark Cabinetry is sold through kitchen and bath retailers, and each of these retailers offer different services. Some may offer all phases: refacing, individual doors and entire cabinets, and some offer only entire cabinets. As a cabinet manufacturer, we do not reface doors in our manufacturing plant. We do build individual doors, but that is something very few StarMark Cabinetry dealers offer. That is because the cabinets themselves still need to be refinished to match the new doors, and that finishing would have to be done on-site, and most likely wouldn't match the factory finish of the doors. It's a lot of work for a iffy result. If you are thinking of refacing cabinet doors, we encourage you to price both the cost of refacing cabinets and the cost of buying new cabinets. The difference will be smaller than you think.
Do you sell direct?
No. It is important to have accurate measurements and quality installation, which is why we don't sell direct to homeowners. A StarMark Cabinetry dealer will be happy to arrange measurements and installation for you.
How long will it take to get cabinets?
Our production schedule is four weeks for most cabinets and six weeks for certain colors, certain cabinets, and inset cabinetry. Your dealer can look up order status for you.
CARING FOR CABINETS
How should I clean my cabinetry?
Cabinet cleaning information is found here.
Do changing temperatures really change how cabinet doors and drawers fit and function?
Yes. Wood will shrink and swell with the seasons, making them appear "crooked" and in some cases, making them tough to open and close. However, it's not a defect. You just need to adjust your doors and drawers.
It's easy to do.
