They also use mdf rather than plywood. They are just one example of an overpriced cabinet. I have to laugh when I see them on the Home Makeover show. The builder puts up a big $ home only to have mdf cabinets installed.
Everyone pushes MDF & pressed-wood nowadays. They can't see selling a more expensive product with a 25+ year lifetime when they can sell crap & sell it all over again in 10 years.
Basically, if you plan on selling in less than 10 years, put in low-quality crap, but if you plan to stay, do plywood.
