Dennis, you are right. The BORG have dirt cheap stuff, but their prices go up steeply from there. When I know I’m bidding against a box, I remind the client that my price includes crown, toe kicks, filler strips, end panels, trim, installation, etc. Those things are not usually included in the box’s pricing, and can really add a lot to the cost.

What really amazes me is when I go into a ¾ million dollar house and see cheap junk cabinets. They’ll set heavy granite countertops on cabinets with 3/8” paper-coated particle board sides that are held together with hot glue and brads!
