What Do Our Customers Have to Say About Carolina Custom Cabinets?

"Carolina Custom Cabinets has been my cabinet and countertop supplier for over 15 years because they consistently produce the highest quality cabinet & installation available, at a very competitive price. I have received nothing but high praise from my customers who have dealt directly with them. They have commented on how professional they are in their attention to detail and response time, but most importantly they still feel that they are treated like a personal friend."
Kenny Reid, President - Shoreline Builders Inc

"Cabinets and countertops are a critical component for every home, so it’s important to have a creative supplier who gets it right the first time, every time. With over 40 homes they’ve done for me I can’t remember a single serious problem. When you consider their quality, service, price and selection, Carolina Custom Cabinets is by far the best cabinet supplier around."
George Hoffman, President - George Hoffman Construction, Inc

"Carolina Custom Cabinets is a great company to work with. They produce a high quality cabinet that is specifically built to withstand the punishing demands of the OBX rental home market, with professional installs that are always completed on schedule. Their ability to instantly fabricate cabinets of any size has really saved us on a few projects. I highly recommend them."
Ken Green, President - KGA

"I learned long ago that buying cheaper cabinets does NOT save you money in the long run. Paying just a little more for a much better product, custom made to your exact jobsite specifications and then perfectly installed right on schedule is the key to reducing costs and maximizing value. Carolina Custom Cabinets has installed custom cabinetry and countertops in over 30 homes for me over the years. I would never even consider using anyone else."
John DeBoy, President - DeBoy Construction & Remodeling

"I am a high end builder serving the Raleigh area, and recently built our vacation home in Pirates Cove. Since this was my personal home I wanted a higher quality custom built kitchen, painted & glazed, and was prepared to pay the higher premium usually required for such work. After shopping several local suppliers I visited Carolina Custom Cabinets, and quickly determined they were exactly what I was looking for. They produced for me a stunning, high quality kitchen at a very competitive price, far below what I'd pay for cabinets of similar quality in Raleigh. This was a complicated job for a very picky customer (me), and they nailed it, on-time and on budget. For you local builders who still put cheap "Contractor Grade" cabinets in your executive level homes, do yourself a favor and check these guys out!"
Steve Thomas, President - Steve Thomas Construction, Raleigh NC

"Nothing is more nerve racking than building a large rental home that is running several weeks behind schedule in late Spring, with renters coming in just a few weeks. That's when it's critical to have a local, full service cabinet shop that can build and install a house full of beautiful custom cabinetry in just a few days. Carolina Custom Cabinets is a very impressive company that can get it done fast with stunning results, time after time."
Steve Davenport - Davenport Builders Inc.

"I have done numerous jobs with Carolina Custom Cabinets over the years. These jobs are often difficult and very complicated. Each and every job has been an extremely positive experience. They are a delight to work with: helpful, efficient and timely. Their creative suggestions and expertise have proven to be invaluable, as well as their ability to manufacture any kind of cabinet literally overnight."
Nancy Pugh - Nancy Pugh Interiors

"Carolina Custom Cabinets has built and installed the kitchen and bath cabinets in numerous homes for me over the years. Their attention to detail, on-time delivery and excellent work attitude with my clients is unparalleled. Their cabinets are superior to any other in strength, and their ability to make them any size gives you the flexibility to perfectly fit any kitchen layout. A lot of people in this business start the job strong, these guys are one of the few who finish the job just as strong, right down to the last minute detail. For instance, I just recently completed a house where my electrician damaged a kitchen drawer that they had custom made and painted. I called Rex to see if I could bring it back and pay to have it repaired. He said no, he would come and pick it up at the job site and there would be no charge to fix it. That's typical of their level of customer service, and why I would highly recommend Carolina Custom Cabinets to anyone. "
Todd Coyle, President - TCC Construction

"Every builder knows that material specs and dimensions often change as a house is progressing, and having a local cabinet shop that is flexible and can instantly adapt to those last minute changes is critical. Working with Carolina Custom Cabinets allows me to easily accommodate my customer's last minute changes, which is key for maximizing Customer Satisfaction."
Frank Zapulla, President - Zapulla Construction

"We are thrilled with the cabinets we have from Carolina Custom Cabinets. Their attention to detail and their promptness in customer service is superb. The two rental houses we have at the Outer Banks have their kitchen cabinets, vanities and media centers in them. They took the time to explain different options to us and the benefits of each, and they take pride in all the work they do. When we build again, we are calling Carolina Custom Cabinets first, and then building the house AROUND the cabinets they design for us!"
Mike and Julie Baselice – Currituck Club

"During the construction of our new home in Nags Head Cove, our builder recommended that we use Carolina Custom Cabinets for our kitchen and bathrooms. Having very little knowledge of Outer Banks contractors, we took his advice. It was the absolute best move we could have made. We found Rex and Arlene to be a total pleasure to work with. Rex is a great designer who helps you every step of the way; and it doesn’t stop there. When installation time comes, everything goes according to plan. The attention to detail, the friendly and prompt way they do business, the follow up to make sure that everything is just perfect – all of these combine to make Carolina Custom Cabinets the best in the Outer Banks. We ended up also having Rex design and install custom shelving and built-ins for our Living Room. When the home was finished, our builder entered our home in the Outer Banks Homes Tour for 2006. We received a special "Blue Ribbon Award" for Kitchen design and quality. In addition, our home won the 2006 "Peoples Choice Award" for the "Year Round Home" category. Rex and Arlene played a huge part in that award. We recommend them very highly."
Toby and Sally DeBarr – Nags Head

"I had Carolina Custom Cabinets redo all of my cabinets and countertops at our beach house in the Outer Banks. When I stopped by their shop back in March to select styles, Rex assured me that it would be done by the third week in May and ready for the first rental guests on May 26th. He had such confidence that it would be done on time, and such vast knowledge of the trade that I decided to place the order. Everyone told me I was crazy to cut it so close and that I should be checking up on the status constantly. Well, I trusted that it would be done and 'oh my god', it was beautiful and completed the day he said it would be! I can't say enough about how pleasant an experience it was working with them and such fine craftsmanship."
Lisa Fiely – Ocean Hill

"Thanks again for helping me transform my oceanfront condo from concept to reality. The entire process, from design to installation was done professionally and with a level of skill that amazed the other contractors on site. I wanted some very unique cabinet designs to maximize my small space, and you truly exceeded my expectations, on schedule and on budget. Well done!"
Robert Snyder – Nags Head

"When you came to our house you were confronted by a little, dreary space – everything was out of date. Your vision convinced us to open up the kitchen ceiling, and now our kitchen space is light, airy and extremely functional! Our bathrooms are wonderful too! It was great working with you. You have imagination, know-how and always made yourself available to us. Thank you so much."
Vera and Gordon Prior - Sanderling

"We recently engaged Carolina Custom Cabinets to remodel the kitchen in "Shell Seeker", our Corolla Light beach house, including new custom cabinets, granite countertops and tile flooring. Our goal was to complete the project before Thanksgiving, moving from contract signing to completion in a very short timeframe – less than 45 days, and they accomplished this goal with days to spare. Rex’s in-house installation crew, his subcontractors and other suppliers he recommended to us all performed on budget and on schedule, with a high level of craftsmanship. His installer, Matt, and his granite supplier from Virginia Beach did a particularly noteworthy job. Throughout the project, Rex answered e-mails and telephone queries promptly and thoroughly. Our new kitchen is both functional and beautiful, and we are sure it will enhance our rental potential. We would recommend Carolina Custom Cabinets without reservation for any kitchen remodeling project."
Nancy and Gil Dannels - Corolla Light

"We have built several large oceanfront rentals in the OBX over the years, and were always disappointed with the low quality cabinets that were installed and how quickly they showed their age. So for our latest oceanfront project we went looking for a local cabinet manufacturer that could meet our high expectations for quality, durability, and value. Carolina Custom Cabinets proved to be more than capable, and produced for us beautiful, rock solid cherry cabinets for our kitchen, wet bars and vanities without a single problem, at a price we could afford. They exceeded our expectations in every way, and I highly recommend them."
Ali Rassoulpour - KDH

"Carolina Custom Cabinets designed, manufactured and installed custom cherry cabinets for our kitchen remodeling project. Rex and his team were first class the entire way. They worked with our appliance provider to ensure a sleek, custom fit. The installation was speedy and very professional. The fit and finish is elegant and the cabinets have performed flawlessly. We are proud of the results, and have received wonderful complements for the new look. We've enjoyed the improved functionality of our kitchen and highly recommend Carolina Custom Cabinets."
Dan and Susan Beauvais - Kitty Hawk

"Our experience with Carolina Custom Cabinets was great! They met all our expectations. Rex listened to our concerns and ideas about the new countertop design. He offered a solution that fit our budget and space constraints. He was courteous and committed to providing a quality product with a quick and professional installation. The installers showed up on time, finished the job to our complete satisfaction and were a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Carolina Custom Cabinets to anyone who seeks a reliable, friendly, professional and extremely competent supplier of cabinets and countertops."
Ed and Carol Nadworny - Ocean Dunes

"We recently completed a major expansion to our clubhouse facility, and the cabinets and countertop were the focal point of our new Proshop. Our general contractor, Olin Finch, suggested we use Carolina Custom Cabinets due to the complicated octagon cabinet layout and the need for commercial quality cabinet construction. After touring Carolina Custom Cabinets impressive facility and hearing more details about their operation, I was totally convinced they were a perfect match for our construction team. From day one they continually communicated their progress and courteously adapted their manufacturing schedules to complete our project on time and in such a professional manner that I would highly recommend them to anyone. I plan on using them again for our new sports bar/dining room expansion later this year."
Keith Hall - President, The Pointe Golf Club

"We had visited several other cabinet stores in the area and were just not comfortable with what we saw and heard. Upon arrival at Carolina Custom Cabinets, we were taken through their Showroom and then given a tour of their manufacturing area. Every facet and detail of their operation is handled with the highest standard of professionalism. They walked us through every detail of our kitchen remodeling, made creative suggestions and just made us feel good about the whole process. The actual cabinet, countertop, and sink installation was handled flawlessly, within budget and on time. My Wife and I would recommend Carolina Custom Cabinets to anyone considering a kitchen or bath renovation."
Georgi & Nancy Risko - Southern Shores

"Joyce and I wanted to express our sincere thanks to you and the crew at Carolina Custom Cabinets for the work performed on the remodeling of our kitchen at the Outer Banks. The end product was absolutely beautiful and your help in achieving that state was commendable. It was a pleasure working with your company on the design and execution of a wonderful kitchen. You offered us great guidance when needed and went out of your way to accommodate all our design wishes. You even kept Joyce happy throughout production thus making me happy indeed!"
Bill & Joyce Sneddon - Ocean Sands

"The pictures look great. You really do quality work. We are thrilled with the results and can't wait to show the pictures to our family. It was a pleasure working with you and Arlene. Your ideas and input helped us get a really terrific looking kitchen. Thanks for everything and I'm sure you will continue to be successful with such quality work and product."
Frank & Lee Adam - Duck

"From the first moment we walked into the showroom at Carolina Custom Cabinets, we were impressed with the friendly and helpful knowledge of Rex & Arlene. They listened to us carefully when we told them what we wanted, and quickly responded to our needs. Rex also recommended a contractor that he thought would best suit our needs. They met us at our home the next day and got the necessary information. We had a plan and budget in 2 days, and now we have the kitchen that we always wanted. I would highly recommend Carolina Custom Cabinets to anyone."
Bob & Janet Hamstead - Southern Shores

"We are so thrilled with our new kitchen and bath cabinets. They are absolutely beautiful and the quality far exceeds our expectations. We shopped around prior to making the decision to go with Carolina Custom Cabinets and I must say that you were able to provide a far better product for our money. We couldn't be happier. We are very appreciative of the designers input that you and Arlene were able to provide for us. Everything came together exactly as we envisioned it, and we are forever grateful. Thank you so much!"
Angie and Shawn Watson - Powells Point

"My wife and I are very pleased with the quality job Carolina Custom Cabinets did for our rental cottage in Kill Devil Hills. They stayed late for us to come by their showroom on a Friday night, then came by to look at our kitchen and made some creative suggestions. Everything was professionally installed on the day promised and we couldn’t be happier with the whole experience. It is truly a quality job at an affordable price."
Everett Birdsong - KDH

"Our builder, Bob Parker of Wrightway Building and Design, sure knew what he was doing when he selected Carolina Custom Cabinets to manufacture all the cabinetry for our new home in KDH. This is our retirement “dream home on the water” and the first time in our 38 years of marriage that we have had new custom cabinets. When it came to knowing what to select for cabinetry we had no idea how or what to select. Rex and Arlene were so knowledgeable and kind, and actually made the design, material, and color suggestions for us. We were so thankful to have that expertise. We took their advice and couldn’t be happier with the selections. They did our entire home, from top to bottom – kitchen, bathroom vanities, built-in desk, laundry room and entertainment center. The whole project turned out great. They have a wonderful operation with quality products, workmanship, and outstanding customer service. We highly recommend Carolina Custom Cabinets for your own cabinetry work."
Carol & Sonny Leon - KDH

"Our experience with Carolina Custom Cabinets was exceptional from beginning to end. The workmanship and quality of the cabinets and countertops exceeded our expectations.

Scott and Sandy Robinson - Grandy

"The durable, high quality construction of your cabinets combined with your very reasonable pricing provides a value that you just can’t find anywhere else. Your installation was on time and everything was installed perfectly. I could not be more pleased with your work. I continue to receive comments from visitors to my home regarding the beauty and quality of your kitchen cabinets."
Mike Ellison – Nags Head

"We had a great experience with Carolina Custom Cabinets. They did everything from our kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, built in desk, and our entertainment center. Everything looks beautiful and they were very easy to work with. Not only is the quality of their finished product excellent but their staff is great too. They were professional, personable, and prompt. We couldn’t have asked for better service."
Bruce "Dream" Weaver – Southern Shores

"From start to finish it was a joy to work with Rex and Arlene in designing and choosing our custom cabinets and countertops. The quality of work was beyond our expectations and the young men who did the installation were true gentlemen and perfectionists. We are very happy and would gladly work with them again if we had to make a choice."
Richard and Carol Gottier - Grandy

"We recently engaged Rex and Arlene of Carolina Custom Cabinets to re-design the kitchen in our Summer Home on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. My wife (Penny) and I discovered their motto of “the difference is in the details” describes appropriately the quality craftsmanship and attention to customer satisfaction they provide their customers. Throughout the project their capacity to listen, accommodate our adjustments to the plan, and deliver the project on-time was commendable. The outcome is a beautiful, functional space that we, our family, and friends enjoy immensely! Thanks for a job well done and exceeding our every expectation!"
LeRoy & Penny Baisden - Kitty Hawk

"Thank you for the excellent job you did with our kitchen remodel. You and Arlene were extremely helpful as design consultants and your staff was very efficient and workmanlike with the installation.

We would highly recommend Carolina Custom Cabinets to anyone."

Your installer on Saturday was professional and oh so polite. Thanks for making this run so smoothly. I will be in touch soon about our kitchen in Colington. Thanks again."
Ellen Dejong - Avon

"I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know the cabinets are fantastic! They turned out much better than I ever hoped, and have made a huge difference in our lab. And, I am obsessed with the "soft close" drawers! The glassware in the drawers is probably thankful as well. Thanks again"

"We just wanted to let you know we were down this past weekend and saw the kitchen, bath, wet bar and fireplace cabinets - they are beautiful and we are so pleased. The wood countertops on the fireplace cabinets are gorgeous and really sets the fireplace off. Thanks so much for all your help and the great job you did! It was a pleasure working together on this! "
