Custom Cabinetry

All Cabinets are not equal. Knowledge of installation/application is critical.

NORTHERN OHIO has been supervising and specifying commercial and residential cabinetry fabrication for over 100 years. Staff estimating personnel in Cabinetry have decades of experience, each. This is very important. Commercial and Residential Cabinetry budgets can mushroom in size without knowledge of blueprints, construction environments, cabinetry styles and assembly and fabrication differences.

We carry all the top Cabinetry brands such as SACO, Aristokraft, Diamond Vibe, Diamond, Kitchen Kompact and Contractors Choice.  We know how to manage cabinetry specs to improve quality, deliver on or below budget, and save installation costs.

NOTE: Cheap cabinets are easy to find – but they become a hazardous purchase as they come with increased costs for installation and durability

We know the difference. Ask us. We WILL have a professional opinion.

NORTHERN OHIO monitors and tracks custom cabinetry projects through all phases of production, can make any needed changes to projects, and keep them on schedule.

Architectural Millwork

Estimators with Sawmill expertise. Save on time and budget.

Whether specifying millwork for 20 floors of an office-to-residence conversion, a critical care facility or a residence, NORTHERN OHIO has the estimating and specification expertise to offer selection based on many factors: appearance, durability, price and ease of installation.

We partner with quality manufacturers like Metrie, Koetter and Boise Cascade. Our selection of trim features millwork and mouldings made of solid wood, high character choices, MDF and finger-joint wood options.

We regularly produce custom moldings week in and out based on Client requests.
