Does anyone have experience using Lowes for kitchen cabinet
installation? Good or bad???
I am buying my cabinets through Lowes, but the contractor's estimate
seems a bit high. I am assuming part of the issue is the markup on
the service by Lowes.
Probably not. But there's likely room for negotiation.
Try and get hold of whoever prepared the estimate and
start breaking it down into parts. You might find they've
included something you don't need, can do yourself or
whatever. They might even find a simple arithemtic error --
made intentionally or otherwise. It's very common, trust me!

There have been so many negative post about Home depot & Lowes
contracting services I would think twice about letting them do any work in
my house. You better read the contract real carefully before the job is done
they have it set up where you only have a little bit of money to hold back.
Also from my own experience ordering anything that's special Windows
Cabinets any special order most likely it will be screwed up, late, wrong,
partial delivery most likely all of the above. I will never order any thing
from them again, Lowes,HD, Expo if it's not on the shelf order it somewhere
If you want my honest opinion you will be better off finding a
contractor to do the job let him order the cabinets let him give you a total
price and a realistic time frame on job completion. I can guarantee you this
if you go with Lowes you will hear more than once from your contractor I
didn't order the cabinets.
It took Lowes 2 plumbers and about 5 trips and they still never got my
dishwasher installed right. I will have it fixed when I replace cabinets
(not Lowes). And their refrigerator delivery guys removed the refrigerator
door and dropped it on my hardwood floor. Twice.
Sears by me actually is pretty good. 2 guys use a harnass and carry
appliances in without touching the floor. And they seem to have decent
small job installers in the Raleigh NC area for dishwashers, etc.
