WWC strives to work integrity and diligence into each cabinet, putting the relationship with the customer above all else, and as a result, the majority of WWC business comes from personal referrals and repeat business with builders who wouldn’t dream of getting their cabinets anywhere else.

“We would not let anyone else design and build the cabinets in our home. Tom and his team are what we call the ‘Picasso’s of cabinetry’ From the design, to the building, and installation they are true professionals. And the best part is their kindness and positive attitudes through-out the process. They were all about the details and doing it the right way to our satisfaction. And my wife and I are all about the details. Thanks Tom, to you and your team. We love all our cabinets in our kitchen, basement, laundry/mud room, and newly remodeled beautiful master bathroom.”
