Sometimes contractors will slyly false advertised that the cabinets that they are installing are “all wood.” In actuality, they may use particle board setups that closely mimic solid wood. Particleboard, over the years, has acquired a bad reputation as an inferior product. However, the reputation is not completely accurate. Garage Vision has used industrial strength particle board for many years without sacrificing quality. Here’s why.
High-Grade Particle Board
While some particle board is cheaply made, there are higher grades that are extremely durable. The quality of particle board is related to:
- The size of the particles of wood (the smaller, the better)
- The glue used to hold the particles together
- The density of the particle board
We utilize industrial strength particle board which is comprised of small particle and high-quality adhesives. The result is a high-density product which is perfect for garage cabinets. The industrial strength particle board that we use is quite heavy – providing a very stable surface and storage option. Before installing cabinets for any customer, we like them to inspect our product to see how sturdy it is.
Water & Particle Board
Particle board is very porous and tends to swell when it encounters water. To prevent damage to the board, it is sealed with laminate covering. Additionally, the lower sections of the cabinets are coated to protect them from floor moisture and water spills. Over the past 18 years, we have had little to instances of customer problems with water swelled cabinets.
