Materials

San Antonio Cabinets At San Antonio Cabinets, we work with a number of specialty suppliers in order to obtain the quality of material that your job requires. For over 50 years, every project undertaken has embodied our motto of delivering excellence. We've built our business on providing only a premier quality product and that starts with how we source the raw materials.

We adhere to rigid quality control inspections of all materials and never accept deliveries that do not meet our exacting standards.

Selecting Your Hardwood

There are a few considerations when selecting wood for your project, starting with the decision to select either Stain-grade or Paint-grade wood. Simply stated, the Stain-grade wood has to adhere to the highest overall standards and in all cases, be as flawless as possible. Paint-grade, on the other hand, doesn't need to demonstrate its beauty in any other way than in its precision which will allow a smooth perfection to the ultimate finish. Paint-grade allows a number of efficient wood choices, including the use of Poplar, Paint-grade Maple, or MDF which is a high-performance composite.

If your project hasn't already specified a hardwood material, we are always able discuss the strengths and benefits of various wood choices in order to assist you in the selection process. If you require unusual, specialty woods or veneers, we deal with select suppliers who can source the best available product as your job requires. Materials available include traditional choices of Oak, Cherry, Maple, Mahoghany, Alder, Pine, Walnut, Ash, Birch, and Hickory, as well as new and exotic choices of Bamboo, Teak, Wenge, Zebrawood, Padauk, Obeche, and Rosewood, and accent materials such Aromatic Cedar, Butcher Block, Live Edge, and Beadboard, to name a few.

At San Antonio Cabinets, we will never recommend a wood selection that will not provide you the quality and durability you require.
