A Buyer’s Guide to Custom Closets

Closets

In that many people are either downsizing or remodeling at this time, there is an increase in demand for more storage and better space utilization. Custom closets, like those provided by The Closet Works, Inc. of Montgomeryville, PA, are a great way for the homeowner to make the most of the storage space that they have available.

There are many criteria that should be taken into consideration when considering custom closets. We have detailed some of the most important ones below to help you obtain the best product at the best price, enabling you to simplify the process.

Vendor Experience with Custom Closets

It is important to work with a company that has many years of experience in the field, with a proven track record and the resources to make sure you get a professional design, created by a qualified designer, installed by a highly experienced installation crew and backed by a company that is both stable and efficient.

While price is always an important component in any significant purchase, one must take into account the ability of the vendor to service the product after the installation. A company without a history may offer a lifetime guarantee, but will it be around in a few years if you should need them? You want to be sure that your new custom closets are provided by a company that will be there to make repairs or modifications as they become necessary.

Quality Custom Closet Design, Manufacture and Maintenance

Chances are that you are not an expert in the closet and organization field. You have to count on the designer that you are working with to create a truly professional custom design, specifically to suit your needs, and a company that uses only the best materials and manufacturing practices. You want your new closet systems to last and be beautiful and functional for years to come.

Did you know that the best material for closet systems is ¾” industrial; grade thermo-fused melamine laminate? Maybe not. Also, what type of drawer slides are best? How about hardware? Does the proposal you received offer 2 mm edge banding that is guaranteed never to chip or peel for as long as you own the product, or the less robust .018” edge used by most companies? If you are going to do a job do it right and the best way to obtain true value, quality for a good price, is to deal with a company that has been making the highest quality closet organizing systems for many years.

Integrity

Since you are not necessarily equipped to evaluate that which is being presented to you, it is important to be confident in the integrity of the closet company you select to create your new custom closets. A company that doesn’t make unrealistic offers like free installation or 50% off. Let’s be candid. Whomever is going to install your closets is going to be paid and you are the one who is paying them.

Unrealistic discount offers and high pressure sales tactics are designed to get you to sign a sales agreement quickly, but they usually don't result in you getting the best deal for the best product. You want to work with a company known for outstanding integrity, extensive experience, fair pricing, demonstrable quality and thousands of highly satisfied clients. For your custom closets you want the best…The Closet Works!
