My kitchen had fake brick walls and a 24" stove - in other words unsaleable. I had 4 bids to redo the kitchen which were astronomical. I discovered Action Cabinets while driving, accidentally. Loved their showroom and that you could pick the style & colour. I measured carefully- more than twice! I chose pieces that fit my space & allowed for a 30" stove. With 1/8" to spare I was certain they would fit & look like custom! They did & the house sold in one day above market value. Only good things to say about the service & their installer. My whole kitchen was done in under a month.

Not the greatest quality. My kitchen is 10x10. After only 5 years, the cabinet surface is peeling and the bottom boards are all warped. My sister went with a different company and her cabinets are still fine. We comparatively cook and clean the same amount but mine seem to be deteriorating even faster than the old cabinets that lasted 20 years without issue. Do your research.

6 weeks late from scheduled reviving date. Cabinets wrong measurements. Worst customer service. Delivery was late. No body seemed to care about my service or know what they are doing.

My husband recently got laid off, so I needed to find an economical way to renovate my kitchen without spending too much money. A friend recommended Action Cabinets, so I decided to give them a try. They provided me with a cheaper kitchen then the other companies I checked out and my doors are a good quality material. I'm pleased with the service and would definitely recommend them for kitchen renovations.

Chose this company based on my renovator's recommendation and the fact that they had a sale on. I was happy with the product they supplied, but less so with the customer service. They were incapable of many answers I sought and I therefore had to do most of my own research to determine that a few of their answers weren't correct. The product also took 2 weeks longer than anticipated so my kitchen reno was help up and I had to pay the renovator extra for stand by. Not apologetic enough for this either. That said, at least the product was as ordered and looks good in the kitchen.

Wow. TERRIBLE. Do not use this company. They are a cabinet company that does not know how to build a cabinet. From the start they were unable to answer simple questions. Availability. Price. Once we finally moved forward with the job the price was increased and they demanded full payment up front. What a mistake. Then the box sizes changed. The cabinets were going to be available tuesday, no thursday, no next week. Then when we came to pick them up they still weren't ready. We needed to have 4 additional trips just to get the product.

Then the product - pictures say it all. Boxes didn't line up. No joint was tight. terrible edge banding. Glue was EVERYWHERE! One door didn't fit so they cut it down on one side only leaving the panel completely off center and ridiculous looking (see pic). All the hinges had to be redrilled. The carcasses were a complete mess too. The crown moulding fell apart as soon as you cut it. On and On. When we asked them to repair some of the items, after bending many arms and basically telling them how to complete it, the timeline went from days to weeks. and still came back wrong.

When I had it with dealing with the sales people and the shop people I requested to speak with the manager. She was completely indifferent with the issues. No response. Not even a sorry.

I was trying to use a cost effective product for my clients that still had quality from a company that had integrity. What a mistake.

Contractors or DIY'ers, learn from my mistake and stay away. It wall cost you Time, Money and Credibility.

Extremely dissapointed about this company, from the product to the customer service. We bought two bathroom vanities from this company back to Dec 2014 because the sales people committed that they have the cabinet we like in stock, and can be shipped out during the first week of Jan, it was actually delivered by the 2nd week of Feb, 2015, because they don't instock any cabinets, all the cabinets they sell need to be shipped from Montreal, it will take minimum 6-8weeks after the order. And during the time, nobody from Action Cabinet been reaching out to us to let us know the delay, while we will have to put our reno project on hold for extra 5weeks. After the cabinets been delivered, 7 out of 9 drawers came with broken surfaces, the technician promised they are going to come back to replace all of them. Unfortunately nobody from Action Cabinet been reaching out to us to provide the update when the new surfaces are going to arrive, until we called in today, Feb 28th, 2015, been told the order is still in Montreal, and it is going to take approx another three weeks to arrive, however that is still not a firm date we can expect to receive those surfaces. Extremely frustrated and disappointed with this company, will strongly recommend to AVOID using Action Cabinet for any size of project.

beautiful work!! Punctuality was BRUTAL - the installers were ALWAYS late (by hours!) with no curtosity phone calls letting me know -- would have been a huge issue had I not been on mat leave and at home anyways. But the custom cabinets are awesome. have had them about 3 years now. beautiful.
