Our Client Testimonials

Two projects: designed and installed a wine/beverage center in our kitchen and replaced master bath cabinets as part of a bathroom remodel. Overall it went very well. We had a little miscommunication on the completion date but we were able to work things out and be completely satisfied. Dan was awesome to work with as was Mark. Both offered fantastic advice when it came to making selections. They are not the cheapest game in town but the quality makes them one of the best values. They were very professional and pleasant to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to do any kind of cabinet/counter project.

G. Falk, Lakeville

Designed a wet bar for our basement with ideas we liked, made all the cabinetry & counter, installed to plans within our budget. Very friendly staff, very knowledgeable, with specs for; clearance of lighting, sink, microwave, under counter fridge. Very helpful and lots to choose from different styles of cabinet design, wood-type, stain, hardware, cabinet glass, in their showroom. They were on-time with their estimate of ready to install. Very friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend Cabinets By Dan as they provided exactly what we were looking for. We had no issues what-so-ever!

K. Erickson, Savage

I wanted to replace two under the counter sinks in the bathroom. As I was to find out this is not a job done by a plumber. It is a smaller job that some companies don't want to bother with. I called Cabinets By Dan as it was listed on Angie's List as a company that works with granite. Dan came over the same day as the call and said he would send someone over to do the job, though it was a much smaller job than they usually deal with. His worker came over this morning and did a wonderful job - it was done to perfection. At the end of the job pictures were taken of the work, so they could be seen by Dan, assuring that the job was done right. Dan had taken pictures of the job before the work had been done. Would definitely recommend this company to all, small job or large.

D. Lohrey, Burnsville

I got a quote from them for all new cabinets and installation. It was custom. I didn't go with them. They gave a timely bid and response. I went with somebody else. The quote was about the $15,000 level. His responsiveness to my needs was very good. The quote process went fine.

B. Wachendorf, Prior Lake

Cabinets By Dan built a bathroom vanity, installed two bathroom vanity countertops, and built a mirror frame to match the vanity. I am a former teacher and I don't give easy A's. Cabinets By Dan certainly earned the A rating I gave them across the board. I found this cabinet making company on Angie's List. At my first meeting, I was unsure what I wanted for my bathroom renovation. The staff gave me their time and were very helpful. They were on time for appointments at my house: first to measure and then to install. The cabinet and countertops are very well made and are just right. The cost was reasonable. I did have other estimates. In fact, one employee suggested a cost saving measure. The vanity counter tops aren't very large. He suggested that I look for two large remnants. I did, found two I liked, and saved about half the cost for the countertops. I will be hiring them soon for kitchen countertops.

L. Brown, Bloomington

Two years ago Dan's fabricated and installed kitchen cabinets to my detailed specifications. This is a test of time review: Two years later the project looks great. The clear coat cedar has aged beautifully; a comment to the quality materials they use. Drawers and doors all function perfectly. Joints remain clean and tight. Their ability to take a customers detailed design and make it a reality is only outdone by the value the project has added to my house.

L. Lundberg, Eagan

Dan and his team built cabinet doors and drawers for my existing cabinets. The entire process was excellent. They answered all of my questions to scope the project, select the materials and sizes I wanted. Craftsmanship was great. Above all, they were responsive, up front, and punctual. I didn't have a single no-show or un-returned phone call. Great experience all around.

R. Halgren, Austin, TX

We did a complete master bath remodel. We added a large cabinet to house our stackable washer and dryer plus vanities and a large linen cabinet. Dan and his team were amazing to work with, offering great suggestions as we moved forward with this project. The quality of the work was excellent. We would definitely use him again. Can't say enough about this project and how Dan and his company provided excellent guidance. Would highly recommend him.

T. Wilcox, Minnetonka

Fixed five cabinets that we thought we would need to replace and showed us how to do some of the work ourselves! We were very impressed with the friendliness, kindness, and integrity everyone at Cabinets By Dan showed us. Our first carpenter examined each of the cabinets that we expected to replace, and fixed two of them with just the tools in his belt! Then he showed us how to do it ourselves next time, and set up an appointment for his colleague to return with wood and supplies to fix the other three. While the second carpenter from Cabinets By Dan was fixing one of the cabinets, he came across my husband's stash of Christmas cash - which my husband had forgotten was in the broken cabinet - and alerted us to it. We were very impressed by Cabinets By Dan and are looking forward to another broken cabinet so that we can call them again!

J. Hietala, Snoqualmie, WA

I used Cabinets By Dan for doing flash cabinets for our downstairs. They were really good. They were awesome and I highly recommend them. They were very courteous and their pricing was right. I felt okay around them because they were really nice.

T. Smith, Eden Prairie

I got an estimate from Cabinets By Dan 3 weeks ago. It was to either replace or refinish cabinets for us. They showed up on time and seemed professional. They were punctual.

D. Breeden, Lakeville

Cabinets By Dan came to our home and measured our kitchen to be able to give an estimate on cabinets replacement/kitchen remodel. Dan came to our home and was professional and thorough. We talked about different options we had without space and he wrote up a couple different quotes to cover the different ideas we talked about. I also stopped in at their showroom and again Dan and Terri were very helpful while I looked at different cabinet and countertop choices. After looking at all our options to remodel the kitchen, we did end up going a different route and did not hire Dan to do the work. I was very pleased with the experience, however, and would definitely consider calling them again if a cabinet need would come about again.

J. Bergstrom, Prior Lake

Our dated kitchen cabinet doors and the doors of 3 linen closets were replaced and all cabinetry was refinished beautifully. We have a beautiful new kitchen! Dan and his staff were a pleasure to work with. Their organized showroom and professional advice made it easy for us to make selections and determine how to proceed with our project. We chose new cabinet doors, some with glass and one with a chalkboard finish. Dan had suggestions on new inserts that would improve the function of our kitchen. They built the new doors and drawers to fit our existing cabinetry, installed them, then new and old was refinished in a lovely ivory color of our choice and a coppery glaze was applied. Lovely!

D. & T. Ward, Eden Prairie

Cabinets By Dan did some work on my countertop. Dan was able to send someone out on a short notice to cut out the back of my countertop and backsplash to accommodate a slide in range that was being delivered in a couple of days. He provided me with ad estimate within 24 hours. The work was perfectly done and it took very little time. I was very pleased with the turn around and the service that was provided. I would certainly use them in the future.

C. & T. Pollock, Eden Prairie

Cabinets By Dan helped us with some built-ins lockers for our mudroom. He matched them perfectly to the rest of our house and they look amazing. It looks as if they've always been there! We will definitely be using him again for our future projects.

S. Heichert, Shakopee

Overall we are satisfied with the cabinets and entertainment center that have been installed. Keep in mind, they are not a general contractor and will at times sound like it but many details are up to you to figure out. Job was pushed back 3 times due to problems with staining and other issues. Had to re-schedule other work a couple of times and they said that happens. Also, my wife and I discussed several details with them during planning that when the job was done were either forgotten or not included. Be sure everything is written down. The end product is good.

M. O'Brien, Lakeville

Dan and his people installed Granite countertops in our kitchen and the job could not have turned out better. The quality of both granite and their workmanship was excellent. Great company to do business with. From start to finish the job went quick and their craftsmen were very precise (no mistakes). A job done well!!

P. Spano, Lakeville

I had Cabinets By Dan make 2 cabinets for me to match with the rest of the kitchen. Cabinets look great - installation was very profession. They also installed island for me - beautiful detail - love it. Great to work with, communicated well and got the job done!

K. Sames, Farmington

Cabinets By Dan created a custom master oak vanity and tub deck front for us. We had them replace our countertop with granite and they created a small granite shelf. We also had them create two oak framed mirrors to replace the full wall mirror that we had previously. They custom made the stain that we used for all the wood. We contacted them for an estimate and Dan came out to take measurements. He had some great suggestions on our remodel. We met with Josh at their business and he helped us with the door selection, hardware, and granite selection. Mark and Josh helped us decide on the stain and both came up with a great suggestion for our heater vent. It was great to have it custom made, the extra storage space is wonderful. Their workmanship is amazing.

D. Welch, Burnsville

Cabinets By Dan installed countertops in our kitchen and did some cabinet panels for our old cabinets about 1 years ago. They also did a new fire mantel for us. We just tuned up our kitchen. We updated the kitchen a little bit and we did not do a whole renovation. We thought that they were very fair on their prices and that they were not too high. The countertops were expensive, but as far as the cabinet work goes, it was a very reasonable cost. Our overall experience with them was very, very good. They were very responsive.

J. Dahlgren, Bloomington

We did a complete redo of the kitchen. General contractor removed old cabinets and walls down to the studs, then added insulation and new drywall. Dan visited before the demolition and drew up plans based on our conversations. They measures after drywall was done and built and installed the cabinets and a large island. Dan and his company were great to work with - highly professional and clearly passionate about their work and product. We had no experience with a project of this scope, but had some definite design ideas. Dan listened well, incorporated our ideas and designs while making excellent suggestions regarding potential options. Once our general contractor paid the deposit, everything proceeded on schedule. The installation went very smoothly all in one day. Everything was installed, adjusted and tested meticulously. Our older home has less-than-even ceilings and floors but they did a wonderful job blending and matching. We love the results and get lots of compliments.

J. & D. Weller, Robbinsdale

We had Cabinets By Dan build two entertainment centers; one in our family room and one in the basement. We had a few other cabinet places come out to give us prices. Dan was the only one that listened to what we wanted and offered suggestions based on our ideas. We were so impressed with the way they came out that we called him back to build vanities for the bathrooms. It is our pleasure to recommend Cabinets By Dan, Inc. for your remodeling needs. Excellent customer service is all about going the extra mile. Cabinets By Dan, Inc. lives this philosophy. They are prompt, polite and professional. If you want something done right the first time, this is the company to call. We appreciate the detailed bids they provided and how clean they left the job each day. The built in bookcases that were installed in both our main and lower levels exceeded our expectations in both beauty and craftsmanship. If you are looking for a Twin Cities remodeling contractor who shows up at the scheduled time, does the job in a timely manner and is very thorough, give Cabinets By Dan a call. We are certainly glad we did.

B. Rudnitsky, Minnetonka

Cabinets By Dan built three cabinets and installed a countertop for us in April. It was great. I dealt with three different people. It included the owner Dan, the production manager and the actual installer. They were all terrific and I had a good experience. They weren't cheap and they were more than the others, but I thought it was an excellent value. They ordered extra hinges and extra hardware. Some people just order one, but they ordered two just in case. We actually needed the extra ones because we had some extra cabinets that we needed them to match. They knew exactly what they needed. The owner came out to check on the installers to see if we had any issues. Not every company does that. I would use their services in the future too. In fact, they are doing some other cabinets for me as well.

R. Karinemi, Minnetonka

We had all new custom designed and installed kitchen cabinets and granite countertops. From start to finish it was perfection. It was absolutely wonderful working with such professionals, from the owner Dan to his amazing team. This company has true master carpenters in every sense of the word. I couldn't be more pleased and I just love my new kitchen!

D. Jones, Minneapolis

Cabinets By Dan made all of the cabinets for my kitchen remodel and did a fireplace, mantel and a bench in a broom closet when we expanded the scope of the project. Dan came out quite a few times prior to the project to discuss our ideas and what we could do and still keep with the feeling of the home. He showed us the designs that were in out price range and went over what we wanted. After the project was in progress, we added to the scope of the project and asked them to build a fireplace and mantel that would match the cabinets. We asked them to build a bench and cabinet for a broom closet and when they gave us the quote, we could not afford to have it done so, I told them I would have to look elsewhere. Dan worked out a price without some of the frills of the project that we could afford and when he brought it over, it had all of the frills at no charge. When I asked him about it, he told me that he could not let it g out looking so bare and that he wanted to do quality work all the way around. I have been very impressed with their service and the quality of the work. They are expensive; however, I feel that they are definitely worth it.

K. Baum, St. Paul

New cabinets were installed in the kitchen. Also, Dan arranged for another company to do the countertop. From the first time I met Dan & Mark at my house for an estimate, going to the showroom to pick out cabinets and hardware, to the installation of the cabinets, it was a very positive experience. The cherry cabinets are absolutely gorgeous and everyone associated with it could not have been nicer or more helpful. When people come to the house, they are "blown away" by how beautiful they are!

S. Christenson, Eden Prairie

Cabinets By Dan constructed cabinets and countertops for my kitchen. They also referred me to a stain shop housed in the same building the company owns. The cabinets were built incorrectly, stained incorrectly and came with hinges I feel were inappropriate for the construction method. The hinges are very large and get in the way when loading mu cabinets with china and glassware. Cabinets By Dan refused to replace the hinges unless I paid for labor to change them out, even though they indicated that the hinge I would like is less expensive than the one they used. Since I did not want to pay them any more money, I offered to change the hinges myself if they supplied them, but they made this an unrealistic task. Throughout my various problems, they have never apologized for any inconvenience and have, in fact, been rude and difficult to work with. I had to contact the Better Business Bureau to get help in resolving the problems. It is now eight months after making my down payment for constructing the cabinets and I am still trying to tie up loose ends with this company. I strongly discourage anyone from using this company.

W. Bratvold, Minneapolis

I needed a vanity drawer front replaced that had cracked. After contacting several businesses (since December 14) for help to repair or replace a cracked drawer front, a general contractor referred me to "Cabinets By Dan" in Savage. Although it was an extremely small job that was not worth the time, the owner picked up the drawer on 1/24/06 and it was repaired the next day. His philosophy was that no job is too small to satisfy a customer and to generate more business through positive customer experiences. I'm referring everyone I know to him.
