Is this standard?

bcafeOctober 15, 2012

My cabinets are installed, the trim and light rail are in. However, they did not fill the nail holes. My KD/cab salesperson said that was up to me. Really? 16k on cabinets and I need to fill nail holes? I am just wondering if that is SOP.

No it's not standard! I would screaming bloody murder if I spent 16 grand on cabinets and they didn't fill -- or cover -- the nail/screw holes.

In our case they covered the screw holes with the colored dot things inside the cabinets, which was totally fine by me. I wouldn't expect them to fill and stain the holes, I just wouldn't want to see screw heads in my cabs after spending all that dough.

No way is that the responsibility of the owner. That is part of the install.

Tell that KD to get his/her can over there with the appropriate filler! Good LORD the nerve of some of these people.

Your responsibility? Yeesh.

Yes, it really rubs me the wrong way too. The hardware is not on yet and I have not paid the remainder of the balance (30%) so we will have a little chat today during templating.

16,000 and you do the work? Are they nuts?

Tell your KD-installer to buy some nail plugs on the way over and have her install them. Definitely not your job.

Sorry. I'm new here and have never done a kitchen remodel. Can someone explain what nail holes deserve to be filled?

There was a very similar thread posted either earlier this year or late last year--maybe you have the same KD/Cabinet guy as that other unlucky GWer!! Check for nails/screws that protrude through the cabinet sides as well!
