Fire & Water Damage Restoration for Cabinets

Cabinets by C & F has worked with restoration companies, homeowners, and contractors, to replace existing water and fire damaged cabinetry with new cabinets, for more than 30 years. We believe that we can install new cabinets at a more affordable price than repairing the existing cabinets and can do it in a more timely fashion than duplicating the damaged cabinets & hardware.

Our Evaluation Process

To get started, we must first be assured that the homeowner/contractor is receiving fair value for cabinets that need replacement due to the fire or water damage.

To receive fair value for product that has been damaged, it is necessary for us to inspect each jobsite, making an itemized list of cabinets, fillers, trim & toe material.

We take digital photos of the site as is, to preserve all information that might be pertinent to the cabinet restoration project.

Prior to the removal of any of the fire/water damaged items from the jobsite, we accurately field measure, in detail, to closest duplicate the existing dimensions, and locations of electrical & plumbing fixtures.

We also make note of existing appliance model #'s if available, in case the homeowner will be re-using some appliances, or replacing some as per existing. If necessary, we can work inside existing tile lines.

Choosing New Cabinets for Your Kitchen or Bathroom

C & F can help you choose a modern kitchen cabinet that closely resembles your existing cabinetry from any of our 5 different factory manufacturers of residential cabinetry. C & F carries cabinet styles ranging from modular to fully custom.

Most of our manufacturers have a better product warranty for their product going in, than the product being removed may have had. This is good both for the homeowner who plans to re-sell or for the homeowner who plans to reside in the property long term. With thousands of cabinet door styles and finishes to chose from, any home can be restored to its original splendor or rehabilitated with a new style and finish for the new millennium.

Planning for the New Cabinet Installation

During layout and design, our designers work closely with the decision makers, making sure that function as well as form is considered. Is a trash/recycling mechanism a good option for the homeowner at this stage of their lives? Do rollout shelves make sense? Are there enough drawers to accommodate a busy kitchen. Is a pantry a necessity? Would having a broom closet be a benefit? Can a hamper pullout be added in the master bath or laundry cabinetry? All of these items can be discussed and included in the final plan if requested. All designs are done on a computer drafting program. Seeing the space in 2D & 3D renderings assures you know what you are getting, and what goes where if changes have been requested and made. All drawings are in easy to read height, width & depth in inches, not millimeter renderings in line drawings.

C & F has a quick ship kitchen and vanity program that has a limited number of cabinet sizes and trim, available within a 2-3 day turnaround that is available in a Std. Overlay Birch wood in a medium-medium stain Shaker Style door. This is available on a pick up order basis and is fully assembled and ready to install. The cabinet has a concealed hinge and a maple melamine interior on 3/8 & furniture board construction.

For quick ship vanities, there are currently 3 door styles available. One is the Std. Overlay Shaker Style Birch Medium stain to match the kitchen quick ship program above. There are also 2 additional vanity door styles, with varied size combinations in an upgraded cabinet.

The second quick ship vanity style available, is a Maple Full Overlay Veneer Raised Panel door with a slab drawer front, dovetailed wood drawers with soft close full extension guides and concealed hinges on the doors. This has a Limited Manufacturer Lifetime Warranty. That finish is a light-medium stain.

A third option available quick ship for vanities, is a Cherry Wood Full Overlay picture frame Flat Panel Door with concealed hinges, dovetailed wood drawers with full extension soft-close guides and a 5 piece drawer front that matches the doors. The finish for this quick ship item is a beautiful Harvest stain which is just darker than natural, to even out the color variations naturally inherent in cherry cabinetry. This has the same Limited Lifetime Manufacturer Warranty as the 2nd option above.

Both styles are available in kitchen cabinetry in a 3 week manufacturing time frame. If necessary, the kitchen can follow the already installed vanities, to allow work to be completed in those rooms. Some of our installers have had cancellations in their schedules that allow for installation in short notice but it is a rarity and impossible to predict.

Since cabinets that are water damaged never dry out without expansion of the board and joints, and the smell of fire never goes away, thus ruining the integrity of the cabinet and trim, C & F has made replacement as effortless as we know how.

The Cabinet Installation Process

Your kitchen cabinets can be delivered and installed by our professional team in as little as 3 weeks depending on the style of cabinets you choose. Semi custom kitchen cabinets take between 4 and 5 weeks to deliver and install and full custom orders can be wrapped up in approximately 8 weeks.

Our manufacturers ship the cabinets on their own trucks which allows for a more timely and undamaged shipment. We unload and inventory our own shipments, re-load & deliver on our own trucks. We un-carton everything at the jobsite, and remove the boxing and packaging materials from the jobsite and haul them to a recycler. Our in-house cabinet maker repairs any incidental damage discovered, and returns the product, ready to install, to the jobsite, usually within 24 -36 hours.

C & F provides pine and particle board buildup, cleats, furring strips, etc. as well as gold-tone installation screws, at no additional charge as part of our installation. Our installers are well trained and have worked for us for years. We schedule promptly to replace warranty parts ordered at time of installation.

The Cabinets by C & F Difference

Since C & F doesn't work for the insurance company, there is no conflict of interest. We make sure that you the customer receive the right kitchen cabinets at the right price.

If it is requested, C & F can handle the removal of the fire or water damaged cabinetry & tops, as well as their replacement. It is always necessary to use a licensed plumber and/or an electrician for the areas that require them, such as sink removal and/or replacement and appliance removal and re-installation or new appliance installation.
