Before submitting one of our free estimate requests you must have accurate measurements of your kitchen or the area you are placing the cabinets. If you live within an hour of our shop we will happily arrange a time to come and measure for you. However, if you are ordering our RTA line and having the cabinets shipped to your home, you are responsible for the accuracy of your measurements.
