Hallmark Custom Cabinetry is a Canadian owned, quality custom cabinet manufacturer & kitchen design business. Operating in the Calgary area since 1986, we offer affordable custom cabinets for kitchens and baths.
To manufacture and have cabinets completely ready to install will require approximately 3 to 4 weeks.
Cabinet box installation usually requires just 1 or 2 days, cabinet doors are hung later to avoid damage. This will require approximately 1 day for final install.
With such a wide range of tops available, timing will vary. Laminate tops will be installed approximately 2 to 3 days after box installation. Granite tops require approximately 1 to 2 weeks for delivery.
Kitchen area should be primed and any overlay floor materials should be installed. Tile, linoleum or pre-finished wood floor go in after cabinet box install. Finished in place hardwood floors go in prior to box installation.
Stock — Stock cabinet manufacturers offer a full range of cabinets in specified sizes. With stock cabinets you “get what you pay for”. Some of the cheaper lines use doors of mismatched or lower quality woods. They may use thin laminates or actual paper products that simulate wood on finished sides. The parts of the case may be only glued together with no mechanical fasteners to ensure durability over the life expectancy of the piece.
Semi-Custom — Semi custom cabinets are produced by both stock and custom manufacturers. This product combines the advantage of an assembly line process with the ability to create some limited special sizes with some attention toward the importance of style.
Custom — Custom cabinet manufacturers make one kitchen at a time. The cabinets are not produced until the kitchen has been designed and all details are finalized. These totally custom “built-to-order” kitchens are considered premier “furniture grade” cabinet systems. These manufacturers generally offer the latest technology, construction methods and case materials, the most extensive array of accessories available, and a long history of excellence in service as well as in product.

To remove fingerprints, cooking fumes, smoking residue, just wipe the surface with a cloth dampened with a non-wax polish or mild detergent solution. Avoid the use of ammonia based products or silicone oils as they may cause damage if used over a long period of time.
The finish is durable and resistant to most household spills. However, spills should be wiped up promptly to avoid potential problems.
Excessive prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, high temperatures and high humidity can cause damage to both the finish and the wood itself. These should be avoided.
