Our kitchen was completed backwards...due to issues and the age of the house, we installed honed granite, new appliances, a sink, and had a backsplash put in without new cabinetry. When we bought the 100 year old home, the kitchen had too many cabinets! We removed many and went some open shelving. As the boxes were in great shape, we called a few places to come and give estimates for "refacing." By far, not even close, Macauly's quote and the product he showed us was the best. It was real wood, not junky laminate. The work was completed in two and half days and you would never know I did not have brand new cabinets installed--actually one custom cabinet was put in. I had all new drawers put in and my lower cabinets have the pull out shelves that make life much easier in a working kitchen. My prior home had European cabinets and I really cannot tell the difference. I highly recommend Counter Edge--great workmanship, honest and reliable, and just a good guy.
