Exposed particle board next to cooktop
My cabinets are here and installed. There have been several issues with them. I ordered plywood in all wet areas, which didn't happen, soft=close drawers weren't installed, etc. They sent a man up (I live two hours away from the place that made them) to check everything and make a list of what needed to be fixed.
One issue was exposed particle board. I have "fancy" corners in my kitchen and bath. On one part of the corner, you can see the particle board. They want to take the fancy part off and glue a veneer onto the particle board so you can't see it anymore. They can do this without taking the cabinets down.
My question--is this an acceptable fix (ie, one that will last) or a should I tell them I just want the boards changed?
I also have exposed particle board on the bottom of the uppers right next to my cooktop. I'm thinking this won't work because of the steam coming off the cooktop. the venthood itself has some exposed mdf. Will gluing the veneer on be acceptable or should I have them replace the boards?
My consultant (we are using UBuildIt) says absolutely not, make them totally replace it but I wanted another opinion. I'm so sick of messing with this company I'm ready to be done but yet want it fixed in a way that will last!
Thank you for your advice.
