The past five years have certainly thinned the herd of kitchen remodeling companies operating in the Pensacola area, yet Nate The Cabinet Guy quietly chugs along. How do I do it? Being a former Marine, I remember adages like “lean and mean” and “travel light, freeze at night.” This sort of describes my personal philosophy. I have zero business or personal debt, and I am home-based. My truck, which is my mobile showroom, is paid for. I saved up to build my dream workshop instead of going into debt (maybe I should be President). Bottom line: My leanness saves you money.
I am not the cheapest, however. It is not my goal to be the cheapest . I want to be the best at what I do and offer reasonable prices, remarkable competence, pleasing creativity, unusual honesty, and the work ethic and attention to details you’d expect from a U.S. Naval Academy graduate and former U.S. Marine Corps officer.
I’ve been remodeling kitchens in Pensacola, Gulf Breeze, Fort Walton Beach, and Destin, Florida, for over 18 years. I started off in 1995 as a national cabinet refacing franchise, but eventually became an independent operation specializing in traditional kitchen remodeling. Cabinet refacing–and its euphemisms restyling, rejuvenating, and restoration–is most likely a rip-off evidenced by the smarmy salesmen in starched shirts and ties offering huge discounts if you sign up on the spot. In fact, most refacing companies charge almost as much as what I’d charge for new high quality cabinets. Some charge a lot more. Read more here.
I’ve been a Jim Bishop Cabinets dealer for about 14 years. They are a small, family-owned, mid-priced, custom-cabinet maker located in Montgomery, Alabama and founded in 1964. Their cabinets are mid-priced, but they have both “high-end” looks and features. I would never consider using any other American cabinet maker. I think they are the best in the business. My customers always tell me that they got a lot for their money. I agree.
I know the value of hard earned money. I show my respect for your hard earned money by giving you the best kitchen remodeling experience possible.
