Review:
"Contractor"
I am a contractor in the Buffalo, NY area. I have strayed a few times from my normal brand (Schrock) and used Homecrest. Had problems with both of the jobs where I used Homecrest. On one job, while installing the drawer into the base unit, the drawer literally fell apart into five pieces in my hands! Upon inspection I found that most of the staples had missed their intended targets, and the hot glue didn't do much either. Good thing the homeowner wasn't standing right there to witness that. I had to tell her that I had to swap out the drawer because I wasn't happy with the finish. My salesman at the dealer (Kitchen World) had it repaired for me, but was very nonchalant about it, and acted like this never happens! I began having my doubts about Homecrest then. The final straw was when a very good customer whom I had done a kitchen using Homecrest seven years prior contacted me and informed me they were coming apart ! Upon inspecting the job, I discovered that the Thermofoil finish was peeling off many of the cabinets ! When I contacted (Kitchen World) again the manager informed me the warranty period was up. Are you kidding me?! In my experience a kitchen should last 20 Yrs. some longer. After some strong arming them, they agreed to replace the affected doors and drawer fronts. My (excellent) customer insisted on paying me to replace the parts. I have never seen cabinets self- destruct like these did ! There will most likely be more issues with these cabinets,but fortunately this customer is very understanding. As for me- No more Homecrest! Total junk!

"Very happy"
I just installed my new Homecrest Cabinets and we love them. We choose the Arbor Maple with upgrade of plywood boxes. The doors are soft close and the drawers solid wood with also a soft close. This is a cabinet line that offers particleboard construction or all wood construction. The up charge for all wood construction was $475.00 for the entire kitchen! The cabinets have a lifetime warranty and all the moving parts. Best purchase I have ever made!

"Absolute junk for the price we paid"
Let's just say it simple, "expensive Garbage". Will never purchase again. The dealer was weird, rather creepy, like crooked creepy. Had a corner cabinet fall apart on me. Would be better quality if I just built my own cabinets myself next time

"Itís not the cabinets"
We bought Homecrest cabinets from Allure design. The order was shipped incorrectly, took forever to get it straight. Now we are missing trim, shelves. Homecrest has very terrible customer service. Wonít assist homeowners. Only deal with dealer. The dealer is a crook. Cabinets look great but not complete. Make sure you donít use Allure design and buy other cabinets. Trust a consumer.

"Fairly good but would not purchase again."
Purchased a new home in 1986 with these builder's standard cabinets. House has 15 cabinets in kitchen and 7 in (2.5) baths + dressing area of MBR. A few minor problems; 1) self closing (spring enclosed) hinges failed on 6 cabinets 2) drawer bottoms/slides broken on 2 actively utilized drawers 3) surface finish faded (even on cabinets not exposed to sunlight) 4) weak undercabinet structure below kitchen sink. Fairly good for current lifetime (over 27+ years). Biggest drawback is pathetic support by Home Crest. Impossible to buy their spare parts. I simply must make my own repairs and improvise by hunting down similar parts from other sources. Overall, quality is about 70% [out of 100%]. As these things are a twice in a lifetime type of purchase, I'd avoid this company.

"Mine Are Fine"
I only have these in a half bath. I had Aristrocraft when our house was built & hated them from before we moved in. My Home Crest are sturdy, no problems with the hinges, drawers, or finish. I like them & definitely would consider them in our next bathroom remodel-our son's bath, now a guest room bath.

"Very Happy"
I love Homecrest cabinets and we have had them for 12 years now. This is a brand that offers particle board construction and offers all wood construction as a slight upgrade. I can see from alot of posts here that there was an issue of hinges breaking. I had no issue with our local dealer. They just mailed them to out to our house.

"Kitchen Dealer"
We are a Kitchen dealer of Homecrest Cabinets for over 40 years. This has been a cabinet line that has transformed from apartment grade cabinets to offering all wood construction, wood doors & drawer fronts, dovetail drawer with a soft close mechanism, soft close hinges, and they can customize just about anything needed. The cabinet line now also offers a lifetime warranty on the cabinetry and moving parts. The biggest issue we have seen was the hinges made many years ago had a plastic part inside that malfunctioned over time. The hinge has a lifetime warranty and free replacement hinges can be mailed. You need to know if you have a full overlay hinge (door covers most of the face frame of cabinet)or standard overlay (roughly 1" of space around door on face frame). I hope this helps as with any product it comes down to the dealer that sells the product to back up any issues or warranty on the product. Typically the manufacturer needs you to work with a local dealer. If you don't know your local dealer call Homecrest direct at 1-574-535- 9300 and they can help you out.
