Learn About Our Friendly Six-Step
Process For Building Your Custom Cabinets
We make it easy to order your semi-custom Coppes cabinets. We handle every step, from the discovery to the final installation.
Either at our store, in person, by phone, or email, we learn as much about your project as possible to get the project started. We use our Kitchen Planning Guide to get started.
Estimate & Options
We provide an estimate to give you an idea of your expected costs.
We offer a range of choices, including door styles and wood types, to meet your aesthetic and stay within your budget.
Samples & Ideas
Our Statement of Work defines what is included in your project. Once we receive your 10% deposit, your project begins. We put together a presentation of samples and ideas, and establish a time frame for your project.
Next, we prepare a detailed contract containing the specific details of your project. Upon signing, you put down an additional 40% of the final cost, which includes our design fees.
Production begins as your project is divided into components and passed along to the relevant department. During production, we provide weekly updates and pictures as your cabinets are being built.
Delivery & Install
The last step is delivery and installation. An additional 45% of the cost is due at delivery. The final 5% is due only after our follow-up, when we are assured that you are 100% satisfied with your Coppes Napanee cabinets.
We build every aspect of our cabinets, from frames to trimming.
Step 1 – Frames
Assembled with no screws, with full mortise and route tenon joints, and lengths cut with accurate electronic fences.
Step 2 – Panels
Cut on a state-of-the-art Thermwood Cut Center CNC machine, sanded, and joined with tongue and groove and miter lock joints.
Step 3 – Boxes
Assembled and sanded by expert craftsmen, with hardwood material and half blind dovetails, and stamped with a hot iron brand.
Step 4 – Doors
Hardwood panels are cut and glued using a unique technique to prevent warping over time, using grain matching.
Step 5 – Assembly
Assembled with wood glue in a standardized, step-by-step process by highly experienced assemblers according to 3D units.
Step 6 – Sanding & Inspection
Hand sanded under bright lights to remove imperfections, and closely inspected for correct fit.
Step 7 – Finish Department
For paint: multiple tinted primer coats and scuff sanded for smooth finish.
For stain: stained and protected with primer and topcoat for lasting sheen and color.
Step 8 – Trimming
Hinges, drawer glides, drawers, doors, and other hardware are installed. The finished project is set up to ensure fit for installation.
