Schrock Cabinetry

Schrock is a semi custom cabinet manufacturer with a decent offering of door styles. They do offer a very good selection of finishes so if you are looking for something that is less common, it might be a standard finish for this company. Their cabinets are not the most expensive semi custom cabinet, but they will be on the higher side. They make a great cabinet and offer a lifetime warranty, so you can buy knowing that if you have any issues, they will take care of them.

Shrock NOT Recommended!

Shrock Not Recommended!!!

My wife and I were referred to ASA Cabinets thru our contractor.  The contractor and ASA Cabinets promised they could beat the big store cabinet timing (6-8weeks) and get us excellent cabinets in 3-4 weeks.  We visited there store, worked with the ASA salesman (Jerry) to layout our custom kitchen.  After a couple of iterations on the design layout of our small (12ft x 12ft) kitchen we ordered the Shrock cabinets in July 2016.  The Shrock cabinets arrived and were installed by our contractor by the end of August.  Many of the cabinet & doors showed up damaged and needed to be reordered.  The 1st reorder arrived in November 2016 and some of these were installed by our contractor.  Those not installed had shown up damaged and a 2nd reorder was needed.  The 2nd re-order arrived in January 2017 (Note: this is 6 months w/out a working kitchen for my wife and 2 young boys).  The installation on this order was delayed ~3 weeks because the ASA salesman said he would talk with our contractor and schedule the install.  After the ~3 weeks, he called my wife and asked us to schedule the installation.  ASA had our cabinets sit in their warehouse for 3 weeks.  We scheduled the installation and ASA shipped the cabinets to our house.  When they arrived I inspected the 9 items reordered – ALL of the items were damaged!!!  I requested a reorder of these items to be expedited.  ASA spoke with the Shrock rep and said they would not send any further replacements and instead would send a cabinet refinisher to come out to our home to repair the cabinets!  Clearly, Shrock has no faith in themselves to deliver an undamaged cabinet or cabinet door.  The cabinet refinisher arrived in February 2017.  After he inspected our cabinets he said he can fix the paint imperfections (runs, orange peel, etc.), but not the dented corners and edges – so from the start we know he can’t fix 100% of the damaged cabinets & doors.  Frustrating on our part, but we made the best of it.  I looked thru the number (~30) of extra pieces I’ve now collected and had him fix the best set I could find.  After 3 visits (pickup, drop-off and a redo), the cabinet refinished delivered his end of the bargain and finished up by March 10, 2017 (Note: this is 9 months w/out a kitchen).  To speed this process up I installed the cabinet doors of which all 3 were now warped and the drawer front had a random, visible hole in it when sent from the manufacturer!  I was able to adjust the hinges to take up the warpage in the doors and the extra hole was thought to be covered when installed, but it was not so we didn’t install it and have a damaged drawer front still.  We were so fed up with this process we called our painter to come and finish installing the baseboards and other items so we could start using our kitchen again!  I strongly DO NOT RECOMMEND using ASA Cabinets or ordering any Shrock (Masterbrand) cabinets.  We could have saved 30% on the total price and had cabinets months earlier by using someone else!!!  The online reviews about bad quality are true!

good cabinets

I do flip houses and use Schrock cabinets and have never had a big issue. Like anything that man makes some things come in damaged. It has never taken me more than a couple weeks to get the replacements. I decided to put them in my personal house and my wife loves them, so much she doesn't want to move again unless we put Schrock cabinets in.
I can tell it does make a difference the quality of who you buy the cabinets from and who installs them. Therefore if you are having a problem it may not be the manufacturer but the dealer.

STAY AWAY!

We completely renovated our kitchen in the summer of 15' and these cabinets were so bad that our contractor has vowed to cease carrying this sub-par product. Like others on this site I invested in what I thought was a premium cabinet. Solid wood, soft close, etc... We have about 30 doors/cabinets in our kitchen and more than 90 have been in my house. They kept sending doors and we kept rejecting them due to obvious defects. They have been OK (at best) at replacement however it's clear they are utterly incapable of making a consistent quality product. If they were dirt cheap it may be worth the hassle, but since they are not STAY AWAY. You can do better. This company is an utter joke.

Worst cabinet maker and customer service

We spent $15,000 on new kitchen cabinets through Shrock and from the first shipment, there have been nothing but problems. Warped frames and wood panes, mismatched stains, that took 3 tries and still don't match. The panty cabinet doors sag and don't line up even after hinge adjustment. Top cabinet doors were sent arched, when all were supposed to be square.Range hood came unglued and they have yet to rectify. The rep for Ct is horrible and won't call back. We also made the huge mistake of ordering Thomasville cabinets for bath and the stain crackled. This fight with them over replacements has been ongoing for over 3 years with no resolution. What good is the warranty if they don't stand by it? If you are considering this brand or anything under the Master Brand Umbella, look elsewhere. Too much money for poor, disappointing quality and customer service.

Service and standing by the warranty

I had some issues with my cabinets after 4 years. I contacted Menards and heard from the sales rep right away, he made an appointment with me the next day. He was from the Valporaiso Indiana store where I purchased the cabinets, can't remember his name but he addressed all of my concerns, adjusted a cabinet we couldn't get to fit just right, had a drawer that had broken he showed me how to fix it myself. The parts came within a week the cabinets are like new again. I couldn't be happier with their service.

Schrock cabinets have no quality control

I am rating these cabinets so low because they are manufactured with no quality control. I ordered all new cabinets and they arrived with chipped laminate shelves, finished in at least 3 different colors, obvious spots of dripping stain and finish, and in some places not even finished at all. I ordered the upgrade to all plywood construction and even the all solid wood construction, and yet there are large parts of the cabinet that are laminate. As for the color of the finish, the upper wall cabinets do not match the color of the base cabinets. Furthermore even some of those cabinets do not match. Some were finished in one color and some in another. Even on the same cabinet, some of the doors are finished in 2 different colors. The face frames of the cabinets weren't stained to match the doors. They were left natural, so they don't match at all. The representative from Shrock came and looked at the cabinets and offered to replace the cabinets and/or doors. I ordered a replacement of 1 cabinet, This was the lazysusan. I upgraded to all wood construction and made every other upgrade they offered, and still the shelves were made of chipped laminate, the face frame was left in the pale almost white natural finish, and the 2 doors were finished in 2 different colors. Also the finish is put on without sanding the wood smooth and the inside of the doors aren't really finished at all. I realize that even if I reordered all new cabinets that they wouldn't be made or finished with any more care, so I have given up. But if anyone is getting new cabinets, don't get Schrock cabinets and since so many other cabinets are made by the same company, Masterbrand, I would be leary of anything that comes from their factory.

Awful Cabinetry

Schrock Cabinetry thinks highly of their product. Their shiny brochures and website photos showcase cabinets in beautiful, stylish kitchen and laundry spaces intended to inspire. What you see is not what you will get. Unless something changes at Schrock, the entry-level products they create should be avoided altogether.

We were never under the impression Schrock Select would be high-end. We did however expect the product would be manufactured without defects. For $1,000 we purchased a simple base cabinet and two modestly sized uppers. Construction is particle board with natural wood faces. We upgraded the uppers to plywood sides which are covered with a thin wood veneer (laminate).

Order One. Each cabinet was of such low quality they were rejected. A casual glance found numerous pieces of the wood veneer chipped from each cabinet. The edges of almost all of the veneer covering were frayed or fractured suggesting the tool used to cut the sheets is dull. It is probably not changed often as a cost savings measure for Schrock. The fact the laminate or veneer is already weakened is likely a contributor to the ease with which it breaks both in production and likely after the cabinets are installed in an unsuspecting customer’s home.

One additional problem was obvious on the 42-inch base cabinet: the left-side door would not close at the top. No amount of hinge adjustment served to bring the door into alignment. This suggests the wood was warped and should never have been used in the first place. Each cabinet included an “Inspected by” sticker suggesting someone examined the product for damage. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Order Two. Our local vendor communicated with Schrock Cabinetry about the problems with our order. This translated into their believing the cabinets were damaged by the carrier as the second order of cabinets arrived double-boxed with large foam pads between the inner and outer boxes. Like the first order there was no evidence of external freight damage nor any reason to believe the damage occurred anywhere except during production.

The same problems were found on two of the three cabinets. Large chips were missing from the same fractured veneer. The largest chip was out of the left-side of the 42-inch base. We have decided to keep this unit as it will be built-in, the sides unseen and quite frankly, our expectations of Schrock are so low at this stage there seems little chance the quality will improve if we try a third time. Unfortunately, one of the uppers has so large a chip out of the veneer it cannot be missed nor easily fixed. This cabinet has been reordered.

Order Three. The 24 by 36-inch upper was picked up on 4/16/16. We chose to open the box the cabinet was shipped in and no surprise, the cabinet was damaged. Two minor abrasions causing loss of laminate in two spots on the left side are present. We have decided to cut our losses and I will repair this face as best I can. It seems decidedly unlikely we could expect anything better from this company.
Schrock Cabinetry has two principle problems: (1) they believe savings are being realized by overuse of the tool used to cut their wood veneers. Any savings are lost when the product is flawed before leaving the plant. Perhaps most customers who purchase these low-end cabinets don’t have so discerning an eye but in the long run the edges will not survive much beyond gentle use. I will probably apply a secondary varnish to strengthen the edges. (2) It would appear Schrock is not committed to Quality at any level.

Craftsmanship probably left this company a long time ago. Instead, bored assemblers go through the steps to construct inexpensive boxes covered in the thinnest veneer and at the end of the line a sightless low-wage employee places inspection stickers without so much as a glance. Add to these issues Rough Handling as it seems patently clear no one at Schrock cares about what they manufacture or how damaged the product is they ship to unsuspecting customers. As suggested at the start of this review, avoid Schrock Cabinetry completely.

The Worst Customer Service Ever

I would never recommend Schrock Cabinets. Their customer service/systems are the worst I've ever experienced. Due to damage (done by Schrock) our cabinets were placed on 2-3 week rush order. It has now been 2 months and they still can't tell us when they will be delivered.

A portion of the "undamaged" cabinets had very uneven glazing resulting in a very poor appearance. It is hard to imagine how this left the factory quality controls.

Great Cabinetes

Unless Schrock has gone down hill, my kitchen is 21 years old and looks like new. Every piece has held up so well, I have no reason to replace :(

Not Good Quality Any More...

This is the 3rd time in 14 years that I have ordered from Whole Kitchen Cabinet Distributors in Perth Amboy , NJ. We renovated the kitchen, knocked down a couple of walls, and replaced the entire floor with tile.
The bottom cabinets were old and worn, so we wanted the same cabinet styles and color to match the top cabinets, and the exact same cabinets made new.

What I got was a contracted delivery date of 8 weeks instead of 5-6 weeks, cabinets that did not fit the original size, and color of cabinets that did not match the upper cabinets and they were lighter and in 3 different tones.
2 cabinet drawers had to be replaced as they were defective, and the under the sink cabinet has splinters. The deep drawers don't close all the way.

The dishwasher end panel was not included in the order, so it held up the job for 2 weeks, and then it was not the correct height. We had a gap between the panel and the granite top.

I am writing the presdient of the company today, as their distributor was useless as far as customer service is concerned.

Now my kitchen cabinets are 4 different color stains and it looks terrible.

Disappointed

I am disappointed, to say the least. I ordered my Schrock Select cabinets in March and am still dealing with defects in September. 5 of 12 cabinets had to be returned and replaced, and of the remaining cabinets, not a single one is issue-free (neither are the replacements). Among the issues: hardened glue on the outside (viewable) areas of cabinets, hard and soft glue everywhere, scratches (some up to 8" long), dents, scrapes, splintering laminate, boxes not level, drawers not level, doors not square, doors different sizes, base cabinets at different heights (off by up to 1/2 inch), poor drawer slides give that wood-on-wood sound, doors & drawers different colors, obvious "repair marker" lines on all cabinets. I wish I could include pictures in my review. My "new" kitchen is going to look worse than the previous 60-year old kitchen! Luckily the store I purchased them from has worked with me on replacing full cabinets and pieces (doors, sides, etc.), but not very happily. The Cabinet Dept Mgr tells me I am the only customer to have problems with Schrock cabinets (I assume he’s not allowed to admit anything different) and infers that I am being too picky, while the people in Special Order Pick-up (where I have to drop off the defective and pick-up new) tell me they see these cabinets returned constantly (but, “I didn’t hear that from them”). I would not recommend these cabinets to anyone. I also would not recommend listening to store employee advice or views. Do your research yourself - I wish I had!

shoddy workmanship

I purchased the Erie Birch line of Shrock cabinets. The workmanship and materials to manufacture these cabinets is shoddy at best. The drip more glue on the insides of these cabinets then they use to actually hold them together. The laminet on the sides of the cabinets is chipped along all the saw cuts and the laminate will chip or peel off easily. The packaging of the cabinets for shipping is very poorly done and offers little protection. I had three cabinets with the sides crushed in and broken, yet there was no visible damage on the packaging material. I would not rcomment the cabinets to anyone, and I would never consider another Schrock products again.

Im having the same problem after only 4 years too!!!

Having the same problem w our 4 years young cabinets too! All cabinets peeling. I think they're using defective paint. All kitchen cupboards are exposed to some water / moisture and the warranty doesn't cover this. Can you imagine if GM came out with a car that the paint only lasted 4 years in the rain and GM said, "We don't cover rain damage?" It's stupendous and we paid just as much for our cabinets as a car! $20,000.00!!!
