Do you provide custom sizes if needed on your garage cabinets?
Yes, we offer custom sizes on our Signature Series Garage Cabinets.
Some competitors promote more hinges on their garage cabinets than you. Why?
Our cabinet doors and hinge placement are sufficient to avoid any negative effects. Hinges are available in different quality levels and weight ratings which may be why other cabinets have more hinges.

We avoid placing cabinets over critical electrical components. If an outlet is behind a cabinet, we provide access through the back of the cabinet for the outlet.
