Frequently Asked Questions

(619) 441-0114

1-Q What kind of cabinets do you provide?

A - Unlike most other kitchen companies, we provide only custom cabinetry. Kitchens, baths, home offices, closets….literally any cabinet for your home. We offer unlimited sizes, configurations, and finishes. All built here in San Diego.

Evanko’s has the facility to manufacture custom one-off cabinet doors and mouldings to fit your design specifications. We also work with local cabinet door manufacturers to provide cost effective standard designs in custom built sizes. This allows our clients the flexibility to be creative and stay on budget.

2-Q How do I determine what type of kitchen cabinet is right for me?

A - Although kitchen cabinets serve a functional purpose they also add style and atmosphere to the most commonly used room in your home. Each kitchen design is unique. Some are  more traditional and some are very open and contemporary. Whether you are remodeling the whole kitchen or just replacing the old cabinets, it is important to select a style that is functional, yet matches the mood and style of your home. Custom cabinetry allows you the freedom to be creative. The use of wood or laminates have always been popular but you may consider adding some glass and /or metals to your design. Maybe some man made  products like the green Eco-Wood veneers or a concrete countertop. The choices are endless but ultimately up to you and your personal style and aesthetics.

3-Q Can you quote & design my kitchen from a sketch that I provide?

A - Yes, your forethought and measurements will speed up the process. Of course, we will always do our own measurements and inspection to guarantee the design will work.

4-Q Do you charge a measure fee or design fee in addition to the cabinetry?

A - Evanko Cabinetry does not charge a fee for initial consultation and an estimate. A design agreement and retainer may be requested if you would like full design drawings but are not yet ready to commit to your total project. That retainer is then credited in full to the final cost of the job.

5-Q Are you willing to work with my own designer or architect’s design?

A - Yes, We are happy to work with your professional of choice. In fact the majority of our business involves the client’s architect and designers. We always field measure and produce a computer drafted “shop” drawing. We would ask your designer to review this to verify the design intent is met.

6-Q How much will my cabinets cost?

A - Cabinet prices can vary dramatically, just like cars or houses. Entry-Level cabinets are less expensive than cabinets with special finishes and upgraded storage features. Evanko Cabinetry provides cabinets that fit most any budget, from basic to bold.

7-Q Do you install the cabinets you build?

A - Yes, we feel that the installation of our cabinets is a critical step in a quality job. We do not hire out installation companies or outsource to contractors. Our own employee’s do the installations which allows us total control over  quality and schedule.

8-Q How long will it take to build my cabinets?

A - This depends on the type of cabinets you want. Some of our kitchens are produced in as little as 4 weeks. Others can take up to 8 -12 weeks. Like most high quality products the extra attention to detail is well worth the time. The important thing to remember is that the sooner we start, the sooner you can be enjoying your finished cabinetry. Remember to contact us early in the planning stages of your project to ensure that you will get your cabinets when you need them….lead times vary throughout the year.

9-Q There are so many choices, where do I start ?

A - ​Looking through magazines, the internet and model homes can be both very helpful and very confusing. With more than 33 years in the cabinet business, we can help you sort out what style will fit in your home and not just follow the latest trend. Give us a call or an email and we will guide you through the first 3 decisions in selecting your cabinetry.
