Kitche/Bath reno

-excellent help and insight in the design consultation.
-generous in helping or providing suggestions with issues not directly related to their job.
-excellent finishes and, without prompting, workers were careful to notice tiny scratches and get pieces redone in each case.
-after the fact a design improvement was suggested and Denca was quick to agree, remove certain pieces and make changes without any extra charges.
-a premium firm with a premium product.

Cabinet Refurbishing & Upgrades!

Denca did an amazing job refurbishing the cabinets in our house! The quality of work exceeded our expectations and the results have our cabinetry throughout the home looking like new! The hood van custom trim work was very creative and also exceeded expectations. The staff were all very professional and prompt which made the job feel seamless. Thanks Denca!

Kitchen Reno

We recently embarked on a long over due kitchen reno in our 1950's home. We expected this to be an arduous journey. Designer, Lisa Notacker Wells changed this expectation right out of the gates. Starting from the initial concept to the final touches. With loads of amazing ideas we came up with a piece of art.
Herself and the very professional Denca team made this happen. Kevin's incredible craftsmen skills right up to Kathy's consistently spotless communication skills. I would do this again in a heart beat.
Thank you Denca

This is a second renovation we have done with DENCA Cabinets and we can not say enough about this Team. Punctuality is fantastic, expertise of work, problem solvers, PERFECTION in work. The quality of this product is superb, when you see the detail of the build and the quality you will not be disappointed. This is a family run business and you feel like the family as each and every one greets you. A special thank you to Shelley, Pierre (awesome fellow), Hussein, David and Kathy who coordinates every one. Renovating an older home brings many surprises but a solution was found for each surprise. Thanks, you Guys are all AWESOME and we would not hesitate to recommend DENCA CABINETS.

Kitchen cabinets

Denca rescued my kitchen after a failed project with another cabinet provider. My designer, Malgorzata (now an independent designer), was a dream to work with. Her willingness to work through endless details until the design was perfected made my project a success. My installer, Frederick, was also a great asset for my project because of his professional attitude, solid skill-set, and willingness to take care of the details. My interactions with this company at every level from designer to installer to owner were all top notch and what you would hope for when spending $30,000 or more on a renovation project.

He has a great energy and doesn't hesitate to make our customers feel appreciated and facilitate their needs. I will make sure that he is aware of your amazing feedback. We wish you all the best with your new kitchen!

New Kitchen, family room cabinet and powder room

We went to DENCA after a designer highly recommended them. We met with Shelley, and were very pleased at how they value their customers. They really did an excellent job from the initial meeting to the completed work. Their carpenters are very polite, professional and punctual. Thanks for everything!

We understand that ordering and completing a custom cabinet renovation is no small project that’s why we strive to provide excellent service in terms of quality of work, timely delivery, professional behaviour, customer service and value for your money and it goes without saying, we couldn’t do it without the dedication and expertise of our great design, manufacturing and instillation teams. We truly appreciate the comments and wish you and your family all the best!

Denca completed our kitchen and renovation in 2014. Their staff was pleasant and professional. I was impressed with how their installers made everything fit perfectly! I would definitely recommend Denca.

Kitchen renovation

A nightmare from beginning to end. We thought they were top notch based on their past reputation. The reputation is all that they are living on now. Feel free to contact me at brian.barnett@shaw.ca

First Review

Kitchen renovation

We were referred to Denca and were impressed by some of their work that we had seen. Their quote was 15% higher than the competing bid but based on the high quality cabinets and professional installation that we had seen and were promised, we decided to use Denca. Unfortunately three decisions made by Denca representatives prevented the installation from going smoothly. Firstly, the cabinets arriving in the wrong colour as they decided a color matched sample panel would be unnecessary. The second decision was to hire an outside contract installer (which was not discussed with us) who appeared more interested in getting the job done quickly than correctly. The third decision was to change granite providers to Universal Slate who messed up a beautiful piece of granite.

To compound the problems, 12 of 30 cabinet fronts were either damaged in transit or during installation and at least six appointments were made and cancelled the day before or the day of due to missing parts, wet paint, etc. The Denca service technicians made excellent efforts to correct deficiencies but ultimately when the original installation is not level or square there is only so much that can be done. The end result was that we paid a premium price for good cabinets and poor installation resulting in a flawed finished product.

I cannot recommend Denca as they failed to live up to the expectations that they themselves helped to set.
