I had waited for my home to close with the builder before requesting any extra upgrades to my kitchen. I knew my builder used Raywal so I contacted them and asked what the costs would be to replace some of the cabinet doors with glass panels. I was surpirsed that they asked who my builder was and that only ended up with a quote that was slightly less then what my builder would have charged. It was just a glass door, nothing fancy. My only concern is their pricing is reflective of who your builder is, which really isn't fair. Not to mention, they no longer use real wood but MDF for most of their cabinet doors, which should be an indication of costs reduction on their end. Too bad it's not passed onto the consumers.
I bit the bullet and paid for the high pricing only because all my cabinetry are from Raywal.

MDF Doors are available for our painted finishes only. These doors are more stable than wood and therefore are less susceptible to cracking at the joints or warping. We continue to offer painted maple doors if the customer prefers.
