rebuilding cabinets using existing doors/drawers?
We recently had water damage to our kitchen and in order to remove the floors that were laid under the cabinets, the cabinets (and therefore countertop) had to be removed. In the process of removing the cabinets, the water mitigation co. damaged/destroyed the boxes. Our insurance wants us to have new base boxes built and to reuse the 24 year old doors and drawers. (saying that way they will match the uppers that were not damaged) Only one cabinet maker out of 6+ that we contacted said that he could do it, but won't warranty the old parts, which is understandable. The others say it's simply not cost-effective and suggest replacing both upper and lower cabinets in order to guarantee a match.
I'm curious to know if anyone has ever heard of this type of approach? I've heard of refacing doors/drawers, but this seems backwards. Any feedback/input would be greatly appreciated.
