What Advantages Do EncoreGarage Cabinets Offer?
Building the EncoreGarage of Ohio garage cabinets to a more robust level of construction enables us to offer garage cabinets with several distinct advantages. First, we can offer larger sizing profiles of up to 48" wide and 90" tall, perfect for storing larger bulkier garage items. Second, we can moun our cabients off the floor and without legs. Finally, our cabinets do not require any center supports allowing greater access room for storing and removing content.
Do Your Cabinets Cost Alot More Than Other Garage Cabinets?
The materials, workmanship and attention to detail that goes into each system we install does cost a little more. However, in comparison you will find we sell a premium, high-grade product at a fair price. Our Dealer Signature series garage cabinets are sold and priced on a project basis. However, we will always design with your budget in mind and we are always happy to scale back a completed design in order to fit within your budget. Our systems are also easily expandable, so you can add onto your system as your budget allows.
What Makes EncoreGarage Cabinets Better?
The EncoreGarage Signature Series garage cabinets have been designed to a much higher standard of durability and strength than typical home storage and closet cabinets. The construciton methods we use feature 3/4" thickness for all vertical components along with 1" thick (50% thicker than standard) tops, bottoms and shelves and a full 1/4" thck MDF interlocking back. We call this "Garage Grade" and this is what sets are cabinet systems apart.
How Are EncoreGarage Cabinets Held Together?
At EncoreGarage of Ohio our Signature Series garage cabinets use only steel construction hardware and wood dowels. We never use weak staples to fasten components together. All of our cabinets are designed using the European 32mm system, the same as is used in fine cabinets and furniture. 1/4" MDF backs are locked into a "dado" groove, which adds strength and interlocks the components together. Behind the back is a wall attachment cleat which is glued and screwed to the side panels. Center shelves are fixed in place using an adjustable cam system to add additional strength and stability.
Do Your Cabinets Need Legs Or Additional Support?
Cheaper garage cabinetry which is built to weaker construciton methods requires additional support is often built on top of a pedestal base or a "toe kick". Unfortunately this area beneath the cabinets becomes a perfect nesting place for pests and bugs. Mounting the cabinets off the floor eliminates this potential home for critters, and reduces the likelihood of water damage.
How Long Do Cabinets Take To Install?
EncoreGarage of Ohio garage cabinets are usually installed in 1-2 days, however some installation can take longer depending on the size and complexity of the job. We normally schedule our garage cabinet installations on consecutive days so you can get back in your garage as quickly as possible.
Do You Build The Cabinets At My Home?
No. All of our cabinets are fabricated and constructed in our state-of-the-art wood shop and then transported to your home ready to install. Since we employ heavy duty construction methods to build our "Garage Grade" cabinets, they are too heavy to build on site like interior closet grade and light weight systems.
