DeRita Woodworking Ordering Process

Before the design process can begin, we ask that the client put together a layout with some room measurements (architectural drawings are also fine) including ceiling height, current layout if any, note any planned sizing/layout changes, and a few pictures of the space (If existing) and then we can give you some rough estimates for your project.

If our rough estimates fall within the client’s budgeting we would schedule a brief initial meeting, during which we will discuss the scope of the client’s project. The client would need to have a confirmed list of appliances for this meeting. We will ask our clients to sign a Design Service Agreement. This agreement authorizes us to provide detailed layouts for the work ordered. Our policy is to proceed with design services only after we have received a signed Design Service Agreement along with a deposit. We have found this practice greatly reduces the potential for any misunderstandings and allows us to spend more time doing what we do best–creating outstanding custom cabinetry. Our cabinetry plans are produced in-house using a program designed to not only produce our cultists and machine data but to give the customer visual representations with layout drawings and realistic 3D images. The drawing phase is typically done through email until the desired layout is achieved.

Once the desired layout is achieved, we would then schedule a selections meeting. The client will pick the door style, molding style, interior options, and finishes. After that, we can issue final pricing. If you are happy with the final pricing, we would issue an invoice for a deposit less the deposit we received in the design phase. If the client feels the pricing is not within the budget, we will refund the deposit less our time taken to produce the layout and the drawings are yours to keep.
