Why Choosing Assembled Cabinets over RTA is a Better Idea

Cabinets are offered in 2 forms: Fully Assembled or Ready to Assemble (RTA),

At Cabinets ASAP we focus on premium quality, convenience, time and affordability for our contractor partners and end customers alike. For us fully assembled cabinets are a no-brainer for your projects, here we explain why.

Even though RTA Cabinets has some advantages like shorter shipping lead times since the cabinets are in stock and ready to be shipped and are less expensive than assembled cabinets because the labor of putting the pieces together has not been done, its disadvantages can outweight those advantages when you take into account the need to assemble them at the job site, creating extra work and more time and energy, also, it is more difficult to guarantee quality of the finished product since the cabinet is not being assembled by the manufacturer.
