Rental-Grade Kitchen Cabinets

For those of you that manage rentals or have some do-it yourself knowhow...

I have a rental house that has had some water damage to the kitchen cabinets. I will need to replace a number of the ground-level cabinets. My bids to date have been very very high.

So my question for the forum is...

How would you go about replacing the kitchen cabinets and not pay an arm and a leg. These cabinets do not have to be perfect. They only have to be functional. Where would you shop for apartment-grade cabinets ? How would you pick someone to replace them ?

Re: Rental-Grade Kitchen Cabinets

It's not too hard to diy kitchen cabinets, especially if the ones you're replacing are fairly standard. The bottoms are easier than the uppers. I bought good looking but fairly inexpensive ones for my rental unit from Lowe's. They were better than the home depot cheapies because they were pre-built. They also have countertops pre-made in standard sizes. Good luck.

We get them from "Just Cabinets" for our rentals.
