Our Process

Executing with integrity and delivering the best in functional design, craftsmanship, and products

3-Steps of Streamlined Progression Means Clear Expectations and a Project Delivered On Time and On Budget

1. Your Must-Haves and Measurements

You provide us with a description of your vision, rough dimensions, and access points. We take everything in. Once we agree on all the necessary requirements, we create a preliminary design and quote.

2. Product, Price Options, and Template

Choosing your products is the fun part. The choices you make here impact the price, whether picking cabinets or countertops. Our design team will go over all the details of your job, making sure no element is missed. We’ll also gather all related information for your project, such as appliance specification or window sizes, to make sure everything can be assembled in your home as expected. Before finalizing the quote, we’ll send our skilled craftsmen to your home to get accurate dimensions and/or build a countertop template to get precise measurements before ordering.

Our simple 3-step process works for both cabinets and countertops.

3. Production

Once all the designs are finalized, we can order your products! Our customer service team will keep you informed every step of the way so that you will clearly understand delivery or installation dates, always making sure we are all on the same page.

Design with Knowledge and Trust

Part of the one-stop experience of Alps Craftsman is the design team ready to elevate your vision into reality. Unfortunately, there are many individuals who work in this industry who aren’t experts in either cabinets or countertops, nor do they have knowledge of how things can be built in a safe manner. That’s where we come in!

We have designers on staff, our own design center, and the knowledge and expertise to only offer our customers designs that are achievable and safe. It’s odd to have to use the word safe when talking about design, but we’ve come across multiple situations where customers could have been hurt based on the rendered designs. Our reputation is built on trust, so we never lie to just make a sale. It’s through our knowledge, expertise, and commitment to education and communication that we earn your trust. Working with the experts is the clear choice for doing things right.

Tips like these below are essential for successful project outcomes.

  • Marble is not suitable for kitchens because it etches and scratches easily. On the other hand, it is great for bathrooms
  • Repairs can be made to countertops if chips occur down the line. However, these fixes are less visible in busier designs than in solid-colored countertops.
  • Frameless cabinets allow for more storage and easier access to the items being stored. Full or partial depth shelves in base cabinets can also affect your storage capabilities.
  • Man-made countertop materials, such as quartz and acrylic solid surface, are not heat resistant. Consider this for not only your hot pans from the stove or oven, but also for countertop appliances.

It is our job to help you understand this nuanced marriage of function and aesthetics.

The Right Way to Do Things... No Red Flags

Grade A Materials Only

Alps Craftsman only offers the highest-quality materials to our customers. Many other fabricators and cabinet dealers offer lower prices, but in turn, use lower grade material or knock-off slabs. This fact is not shared with their customers, which is highly unethical and often causes problems down the line because the material might not perform as expected since it’s of lower quality. We avoid all these issues by only selling the Grade A material at fair rates.

Guidelines Must Be Followed

Engineered products, quartz countertops being the most popular, have specific guidelines that must be followed for fabrication and installation for the material to perform as expected. Just because someone claims to have fabricated countertops for many years doesn’t mean they are well-trained for a specific manufacturer. If a countertop cracks or doesn’t perform as expected, the manufacturer will first check to make sure the countertop was fabricated and installed correctly. If not, they will not warrantythe product, leaving you with a broken countertop that no onewill replace for free or at a discount. Alps Craftsman is trainedfor every manufacturer we fabricate and install so that we don’t void the warranty that comes with the product.
