What your cabinets are made of determines how they look and how they'll stand up to daily use. To help you strike a balance between style and structural support, here's a look at our most common cabinetry materials. Keep in mind that 95% of what comes out of our Plank Road facility is manufactured here in Sarnia and we only use Ontario suppliers!
We use 5/8" melamine covered particleboard for all cabinet sides, floors, tops and adjustable shelves. Front edges of shelving and cabinets are banded with PVC edge tape for a concealed edge. All cabinets have a ¼" hardboard back.
Sarnia Cabinets consistently constructs some of the best drawer boxes in the industry by using only quality construction methods and superior drawer hardware. Sarnia Cabinets has made the Tandem Undermount Systems the superior drawer hardware because of its distinct advantages:
Every standard drawer box starts with 5/8" melamine-covered particleboard or wood vaniered plywood. The ¼" hardboard floor of each drawer is fitted into a dado on two sides for strength and durability.
If you're looking for a special addition to your cabinetry, consider our exclusive maple dovetail drawer box. Dovetail joints are carefully cut into the 5/8” solid maple. Each dovetail joint is individually inspected and hand sanded, ensuring a perfect fit. The drawer bottom is made of 1/4" maple which is fitted into a dado on all four sides for strength and durability. Every time you open a Sarnia Cabinets maple dovetail drawer you'll enjoy the beauty and durability of our craftsmanship.
Features such as hinges, opening systems and slides are supplied by Blum Canada Limited.
For hardware destined for furniture, kitchen cabinets and woodworking hardware, we use the leading distributor and specialist in Canada, Richelieu Hardware.
We proudly support Ontario suppliers – we do not order from outside of Canada.
The hinges and drawer slides come with a non-transferable warranty that is good at your home for the first year. Anything beyond that, please bring it to us and we will replace it at no charge.
The finish on wood cabinetry is vital to maintaining its long-lasting beauty, so we are committed to using the highest-quality products, employing the best methods, and assigning the most skilled artisans to the finishing of our cabinets. Our on-site finishing experts help us to continually refine our finishing processes and upgrade our finish options.
We have a wide variety of finish variations to choose from when all the various wood species and finish options are considered. We use Akzo Nobel products for a superior finish.
Most cabinets are made from hardwoods, but to reduce costs for you, these hardwoods are often applied as veneers over a substrate, such as plywood.
Wood warps easily as its moisture content changes. That's why it's important that the wood be finished on all sides before it leaves the factory. Unfinished cabinetry should be finished on-site as soon as possible to prevent warping. Veneered cabinets are more stable than solid lumber in high-humidity areas.
All finishes provided by Sarnia Cabinets are very easy to clean and are resistant to most household chemicals.
