kitchen cabinet repair

Postby kaisuparents » Tue Dec 30, 2014 10:48 am

Hi ,
In my kitchen, the dish drainer steel tray was fitted to the wooden kitchen cabinet frame. The wooden frame got soiled, and now the steel tray is hanging. The wooden portion needs to be replaced and steel tray fitted back. Can anyone suggest a carpenter who takes up this work and how much do they normally charge.
Thanks

PIL recently engaged a carpenter to replace all the doors and drawers of their study room cabinet and to repair a few kitchen cabinet drawers.

I do not know the exact fees, but think MIL mentioned > $1000.

The workmanship is reasonable.

I could get the contact number if you are keen.

Alternatively, I think you could go to IKEA to look at suitable wooden cabinet frame to DIY.

Hi.

黎先生 9671 9954

Husband n wife team

MIL was referred by her next door neighbour.

You can let Mr. Li know that you are referred by Cashew Road 黄太

According to my MIL, they came to look at what needs to be done n took measurements. Then came another day to fix the new doors n drawer front panel. MIL paid $1700 upon installation.

Just fixed my cabinet under the kitchen sink. The silicon seal around the sink area had worn off, water seeped in and damaged the wooden structure at the sink area leaving one of my cabinet doors hanging as the damaged wooden structure could not support the weight anymore. It costs us around $500 to tear off and replace the wooden structure of that part plus the 3 cabinet doors in that area under my sink. Not sure if this is cost is considered reasonable? My kitchen is more than 10 years old but the other cabinets and my granite counter top are still relatively in good shape so can't bear to redo everything.

Talking abt dish drainer, i saw some stainless steel types in IMM cost >$100.
What is the type of dish drainer you are using?
