Review:
"Consumer Fraud"
It is amazing in this world how a company does not take responsibility for insanely horrible workmanship and customer or lack of service. If there is a problem instead of resolving the problems they make them worse. The Home Depot Lake Park, Florida store is partly to blame as well. Never use this brand or if you do make sure you pay through American Express so you can dispute the charges. Because all that will happen is they will send you replacements of the damaged / poorly constructed, broken, poorly to no stained and glazed cabinets and in two cabinets different styles between the door and drawer. In an order $8,000.00 of cabinets, 23 in total, 18 were damaged or not made right. When the AM. Woodmark (Todd) representative came to the house to inspect the problems, he agreed that the workers in the factory might have been "drinking on the Job on a late Friday afternoon". Not Once has anyone called me to follow up with the fix or the solution. I have had to contact Home Depot 11 times to follow up with the order. The inspection took place on 10/31 and the Home Depot reps showed up at my home in Halloween Costumes, not the most professional dress code when you make an appointment with a customer who is not happy. But what the heck it was Halloween. It is now Dec. 4th and we still are waiting for results. They said they are replacing 23 items but no one has followed up with how it is going to be replaced, I had to chase them down call and show up to the store to talk to store manager (Chris). And guess who has to pay for the re-install? Issues included excess glue on finished cabinets, broken Frames, mismatched styles, incredibly poor stain or lack of, and mostly the wood (Maple) is probably "seconds". Our doors do not look anything like the in store samples or kitchen display. My order might be a "one in ten" situation, but the lack of follow up and the few replacements that are being delivered (we are receiving some of the replacement parts in separate deliveries over the last two weeks. This is nothing short of Consumer Fraud as in bait and switch.

"Very Disappointing!"
Ordered a bathroom vanity by AW from HD and when it arrived the stain was only partially done on the ends and one of two false drawer fronts had been installed out of level by 1/8" and with a damaged corner. It took three attempts to get a passing replacement piece (thanks to HD staff for their patience and persistence) that we then had to install ourselves after paying over $600 for a simple box. not worth the money and trouble!

"Very disappointed"
Please beware when you think about ordering. We are going on 2 months and 3 times trying to receive all out cabinets without damage. Every time we thought this is it we can finish our kitchen either we yet again received damaged or wrong size cabinets. Still waiting since August 30th my contractor is losing patience! The reps at Home Depot have been very helpful but this is ridiculous!

Review:
"Poor craftsmanship and value"
I purchased my cabinets almost 2 years ago from Home Depot. We purchased the Shaker style doors in Expresso. When they arrived, we noticed that the stain did not go all the way into the cabinet door edges. We complained to Home Depot and American Woodmark sent out another whole set of doors. We complained also about the rough edges on the insides of the doors and that you can see the light wood underneath. We were told that this was normal. This summer, we noticed that the stain on some of the cabinet doors was literally coming off. We called Home Depot and they sent over the American Woodmark rep and one of their kitchen dept employees. The rep took pictures and said that he had never seen the stain come off like ours. So he said he was going to report it and send us new cabinet doors. This is our 3rd set of doors. We told the rep that we want Home Depot, to come out to install the new doors because we paid to have the 2nd set of doors to be installed. We heard nothing thus far.

Review:
"Horrible Cabinet"
I went to Home Depot and spoke with the designer my contractor recommended and asked for Thomasville. I was talked out of Thomasville and talked into American Woodmark. What a mistake. To describe the product in 2 words "They Suck". The door stain was poorly done and made them look cheep and these cabinets were not cheap. Almost all the doors were damaged that a factory representative and the home depot designer had to come and see for themselves. The polishing cloths used to clean them would stick to the doors because the wood was so ruff and not sanded properly. It appeared the factory did not use a better quality cherry wood. Almost every door had to be changed and it took a month before they were delivered. Even the replacement doors came damaged and my contractor had to order another replacement for the replacement. Still waiting. Three months after they were installed I am still finding small defects in the craftsmanship such as small cracks and split wood on the cabinet frames. I would not recommend these cabinets and if you go to Home Depot don't let them talk you into buying them.

"Avoid American Woodmark"
It will take you six months to get your full set of cabinets undamaged. Rep states that industry standard allows damages if they cannot be seen from three feet away. Expect to pay thousands of dollars for scratched and dented cabinets that will be promised to be replaced within two weeks, but don't arrive for at least 4 weeks and then are damaged again. So you settle and accept them because you need to get on with your life and not spend 6 months doing what should have taken 1. Their motto should be, do the worst job possible and see what you can get away with.

"Poorly painted- don't waste your $"
I spent over 10K to renovate my kitchen cabinets via American Woodmark cabinets. Lowes told me that the quality was just as good as Kraftmaid but the price was right due to a sale. I am extremely disappointed. They came poorly painted and manufactured with cracks on the doors. The rep came out with Lowes was not rude. They ended up having to replace 5 doors and 4 drawers. I would not waste your money on these cabinets.

"Just a few complaints"
They are nice looking except that the bottoms of the wall cabinets are not finished, so you have to go buy paint the is close to the same color to get a truly finished look. They seem well made although my contractor had to remove and adjust all three drawer fronts. I expect that doors might have to be adjusted after installation, but the drawer fronts should be delivered level. Delivery (not the fault of American Woodmark, but of the company to whom they sub the delivery) was cumbersome. They don't deliver on Mondays. They can only give you a four hour time frame late the day before, so don't plan anything for the delivery day. They won't send smaller replacement parts to the store from which they were ordered so you have to set aside another whole day. There is a grooved panel to cover the back the island cabinets which is sold in 96" length for $412 and in 48" lengths for $191. Now comes the GOOD part! The 96" piece is shipped cut in half into two 48" pieces! Why wouldn't it be priced as two 48" pieces? Granted, its only a $30 difference, but its the principle of the thing. And the three pieces (a 96" and a 48") I ordered were all different colors so obviously the 96" piece isn't really cut in half for shipment. Hopefully the replacement pieces will match.

Review:
"Poor quality"
I payed over $5,000 for a bathroom vanity with two towers on each side... I can't believe how awful the quality is. They're white, but I can see the brown of the wood through the paint. The drawer parts have uneven gaps. I worry that they won't last. Iím so very sorry I went with Woodmark.
