5-L: Frame & Skirting

Background Reading: 3-O: Frame & Skirting


-Inspect the cabinet, and test its resistance and resilience by bumping/pressing on the panels.  Do they feel substantial or cheap?
-Check to see if the panels are removable, because at some point, you’re going to need to access the plumbing.
-Ask how long they’ve been using this kind of cabinet. Be wary if it’s not tried and true for long-term wear and tear.
-Check along and seams – are the lines clean, straight and tight with no gaps or imperfections?
-check for gaps and horizontal seams that may gather and hold water and dirt, inviting mildew/moss.
