Leedo engineers its products to provide many years of quality service. To ensure our cabinet quality, we test cabinets selected at random from our standard production. Our products pass the following tests:

Doors • • • • • •

Our cabinet doors will not be damaged by impact from a 10-pound sandbag. Our doors will open and close 10 times under a weight of 65 pounds and support 65 pounds for 10 minutes with no visible damage. Connections between the door, hinge, and cabinet will not loosen under this weight. Doors will open and close 90 degrees 25,000 times without damage or loosening of the hinge. Cabinet doors will withstand 120 degrees Fahrenheit and 70 percent relative humidity for 24 hours with no appreciable discoloration and no evidence of finish failures. Cabinet doors will endure an hour in a hotbox at 120 degrees Fahrenheit, a cool down period, and one hour in a cold box at -5 degrees Fahrenheit. The finish will not discolor or fail through five temperature cycles. Cabinet door edges do not swell, delaminate, or sustain any other damage when wet with a detergent solution for 24 hours.

Drawers •

Our drawers work perfectly after opening and closing 25,000 times with a standard load of 6 pounds per square foot.

Finish •

Doors, frames, end panels, and drawer fronts will not discolor or have finish failure when exposed to vinegar; lemon, orange and grape juices; tomato catsup; coffee; olive oil; or 100-proof alcohol for 24 hours. Finishes resist exposure to mustard for one hour.

Hardware •

Exposed cabinet hardware complies with Builders Hardware Manufacturing Association finishing standards.

Structure • • • • •

Shelves will support 15 pounds per square foot for seven days with no excessive deflection and no visible sign of joint separation or cabinet failure. Mounted wall cabinets must support 500 pounds without any visible sign of failure in the cabinet or the mounting system. Base cabinets must support a weight of 250 pounds applied to the drawer rail, to ensure reliable front joints that will not open during stress in service or during installation. Shelves, bottoms, and drawer bottoms must withstand the impact of a three-pound steel ball dropped from six inches above the surface with no damage. Moisture content of all wood parts is 10 percent or less at time of fabrication.

Leedo uses true wood for our doors and face frames.

Most of Leedo’s direct compe ors use so er and less expensive woods like so maple, poplar, alder and co onwood, o en changing species depending on what wood is cheapest at the moment. While these subs e materials are less expensive to purchase, they are easily dented and damaged during manufacturing, shipping, in on and use. Harder wood species stand up for the long haul.

Use your keys or fingernails to compare the hardness of Leedo’s samples to others’. Ask cabinet companies to specify their wood species in their contracts. Validate that the produ on order will match provided samples.

Leedo uses true ½” thick end panels.

Some compe tors use 3/8” thick panels. These panels are only half as strong as ½” panels. They are much more prone to bow and warp.

Verify the panel thickness with the cabinet companies who propose on your job.

Sturdy, structurally sound cabinets that will hold up over the long term.

Leedo offers ¾” thick shelves.

Most compe tors offer only ½” thick shelves.

Specify the shelf thickness that you want and need.

The strongest possible face frame construc on: Mor and tenon joints secured with glue and nails.

Compe tors put face frames together with corrugated fasteners, dowels or screws. None of these techniques are as strong and dependable as Leedo’s trad onal and me tested mo se and tenon construc on.

Ask how the face frames are built.

ve cabinets that are also easy to maintain– with 6-way adjustable hinges.

All Leedo cabinets are made with 6-way hinges. They adjust up, down, in, out, l and right.

Compe tors use less expensive and less adjustable hinges. This saves money at the me of constru on, but makes it very hard to maintain good door alignment in cond ons with imperfect walls or floors, or as buildings se e over me.

Look at the hinges proposed by different companies. How adjustable are they? Which one would you prefer to live with over the long term?

Durable cabinets that resist ugly dents and scratches.

The back panel on Leedo’s cabinets are stapled to the top rail and side panels for superior rigidity and squareness.

Competitors place the back rail at the top of the back panel, resulting in weaker construction.

Ask about the placement of the back rail and construction of the back panel.

Standard, 5/8” thick adjustable shelves, with the option to upgrade to ¾” thickness.

Competitors offer half depth, ½” thick shelves that are dadoed into side panels, preventing removal or height adjustments.

Specify the desired shelf thickness and height requirements for your project.

Leedo’s particleboard drawer boxes are glued and dowelled for superior strength.

Competitors staple their drawer boxes.

Ask about the strength of the drawer box construction.

Leedo’s affordable metabox drawers feature steel sides and 5/8” bottoms. They are strong enough to stand in.

Few competitors offer these drawers at a reasonable price.

Leedo’s European line offers a variety of door styles and finish selections to meet your needs.

Many competitors offer the same door styles in both their framed and frameless lines with limited color options.

Look for options that provide the best complements to your project design.

A dedicated manufacturing facility for frameless cabinets.

Leedo maintains separate facilities for the framed and frameless divisions, ensuring the staff at each is highly trained in their respective area of operations.

Some competitors are offering frameless as an extension of their framed line, using the same staff and materials to produce both.

Ask about the company’s manufacturing expertise for each product line.

Designs that meet ADA codes.

Leedo performs a detailed, methodical code review as part of every project’s kitchen design. We often catch errors by architects and code consultants and save our customers substantial expense and delays.

Few competitors have a methodical checklist approach to their design process.

Ask about the steps taken in the design review process to catch errors before they occur.

A transparent proposal process that stretches your kitchen dollars without sacrificing details.

Leedo’s design team is well trained on ways to stretch a kitchen budget. Our methods of eliminating waste in kitchen design often result in cost savings or additional upgrades without increasing your budget. Either way, we reveal any proposed changes up front, as part of our policy of being fully transparent.

Many competitors will make very aggressive cost reduction assumptions before they issue a proposal price - only telling you later what they have actually proposed. Few will take Leedo’s transparent consultative approach to work with you in finding the best solutions for your project’s style and budget.

Ask to see shop drawings with any proposal that you suspect may not be fully transparent in scope.

On-site project meetings to make a plan that will work for you – before the job and the problems start.

Leedo’s standard process includes a pre-construction meeting where our installation management team meets with our customer’s job site management team to make a plan that will work for everyone. We review a detailed agenda of items that we have learned from experience are important to iron out up front, before the first delivery.

Few competitors focus on getting it right the first time to the extent that Leedo does. We believe that this is the key to a successful project, for our customers and ourselves.

Ask about a potential supplier’s methods of planning for success with the job site team.

A trained Leedo representative will measure every wall in every unit on your job so we can adjust cabinetry as needed to fit your as-built conditions. Our measurement systems are simple to use and resistant to mistakes.

Some competitors only measure the typical unit type, not the entire project. Others don’t measure at all.

Ask about their measurement procedures.

Leedo will verify as-built framing and mechanical trades to make sure that the agreed shop drawings are compatible with your mechanicals, before we make the first cabinet.

Few, if any, competitors go to this length to make sure that the delivered materials will fit smoothly into the construction process at your project site.

Ask how often suppliers verify asbuilt conditions.

Leedo goes to great lengths to certify our installers. We do background checks, reference checks, equipment inspections and installation tests before we hire installers. This helps you get a jobsite team that really works.

Many competitors don’t have adequate field management staff to do a thorough job vetting their installers.

Ask potential suppliers how they screen and hire their installers.

Cabinets that actually fit when delivered.

Reliable installers on your jobs.

Skilled professionals to visit your project and discuss your needs.

Leedo has IS field managers who live around the country, close to all the markets we serve. They visit customer jobsites on a regular schedule.

Field staff is few and far between. Jobs are only visited after they get in trouble.

Ask about the availability of the field manager who would be assigned to your job.

A receiving process that prevents last minute discoveries of missing or damaged items.

Leedo’s installers are required to follow a set receiving process with each order. They verify that everything is received as ordered, in good condition, and then store the materials in a way that minimizes potential damage. Any needed parts are ordered immediately to prevent future delays.

Few, if any, competitors have a well-thought out and systematic receiving process. This means that problems go undetected while time slips by.

Ask what receiving procedures they have in place to prevent installation delays.

A system that tracks what’s happening in every unit of your project, every step of the way.

Leedo’s computer systems track the goings-on in every unit on every job. Our dedicated installation team knows the status of every unit, whether it’s turned over, completely installed, or available for the next trades. If anything is delaying completion, we know what it is and have a plan to complete the unit. We track the construction stage, the status of any RFI, parts orders, and many other factors that impact our customers’ success. We need to know what’s going on in order to prevent or react to any problems that could cause delays. Our field team can enter and access this information through their smart phones and tablets.

Hand-written orders and verbal status reports. Sales reps acting as project managers.

Ask to see Leedo’s jobsite tracking system in action. Then ask to see our competitors’. Nobody has what Leedo has, and it shows in our results.

Leedo has the greatest financial strength of any multifamily cabinet company. We offer more than $25 million in bonding capacity. Our ownership has been stable for more than 30 years, and we have a low debt to equity ratio.

Most of our competitors are not bondable. Several are relatively young companies, or have been sold in the past few years. None offer the financial strength of Leedo.

Ask to see the balance sheet or a bondability letter from your potential cabinet partners.

An in-house team dedicated to managing your project every step of the way.

Leedo has personnel dedicated to each step of your job. From sales to estimating, to design and contract management. From project management to supply chain, to manufacturing and installation, Leedo employees are experts in their area and each serves to back up the other. Leedo offers fast turnaround on cabinet production, as well as change orders, parts orders, and solutions to your problems. Our ability to expedite production of cabinets in an urgent situation is unrivaled. Should the unspeakable happen such as a major leak, fire, or even a significant design change during construction, Leedo will be ready, eager and able to meet your needs. Leedo builds high quality and consistent products. In particular, we have effective process controls to ensure that our finish colors are consistent from week to week and month to month.

Lack of structure and internal processes often leave the account manager responsible for walking the project through from sale to installation, making it their sole responsibility to catch changes or problems.

Ask for a list of key personnel involved with your project and how their expertise will benefit you.

Some competitors have long lead times exceeding 60 days for many importers. Those lead times grow longer during seasonal shipping peaks and over holidays. They may be powerless to help you when you need it most.

Consider how important it would be to have a responsive cabinet partner, if you really need something. Ask about emergency response times and production flexibility.

Inconsistent color has long been the bane of Chinese cabinet manufacturers. Products produced at different times often vary considerably in color – to the extent that they can’t be installed next to one another.

When checking references on potential Chinese suppliers, ask about color consistency.

Leedo manufactures laminate tops and ships them on the same trucks as our cabinets so they can be installed at the same time. This speeds up the installation process and eliminates communication errors and lost time between a cabinet company and a separate countertop provider. Leedo provides both granite and cabinets, which simplifies the GC’s job and prevents the confusion, problems, and finger-pointing that can arise from coordinating separate suppliers. Leedo manages granite fabrication with full-time employees in China to ensure a quality product.

Some of our competitors outsource countertops to a separate company. This can cause confusion, slow response to problems, and delayed unit completion.

Ask if your countertops and cabinets will be delivered together or separately.

No other multifamilyfocused cabinet companies offer to sell granite and manage the supply chain from start to finish the way that Leedo does.

Confirm who will have to manage the granite supplier – your or your cabinet company.

Short lead times with the added security of knowing your supplier has your back at all times.

A supplier with proven quality and consistent finish colors.

Significant time savings on laminate top delivery and installation.

A single supplier for granite and cabinets.

Leedo’s granite countertop program is an important part of our mission to make our customers successful. We offer over 40 years of experience selling, manufacturing and installing cabinetry and countertops, importing raw materials and managing on-site installation across the country. Leveraging these core capabilities, we have created a granite countertop program that provides tremendous value to our customers.

Why buy granite from Leedo? It’s easier to work with a single, integrated supplier of cabinets, countertops and sinks. •

Professional Design Capabilities. Leedo designers understand the unique construction integration requirements between cabinets and countertops, especially granite. We can anticipate and defuse issues at the design stage. Design changes only need to be communicated between our Design and our Installation Services teams, reducing potential confusion.

Simplified Supply Chain. There is a lot of simplicity and comfort working with a single, integrated supplier of cabinets and countertops. Buying granite and cabinets from the same contractor eliminates a customer’s burden and liability in coordinating these two trades.

Faster Installation and Project Completion. Consolidating with one subcontractor speeds up construction because Leedo can closely coordinate granite installation with cabinet installation. Depending on job site requirements, granite countertop installation can begin as quickly as the day after cabinet installation.

We provide an exceptional quality product at a competitive price. •

Exceptional Quality at a Competitive Price. Leedo obtains superior quality materials through its extensive supplier relationships in China, and Leedo inspectors maintain an on-the-ground presence at our granite fabricators to ensure quality of the finished product. Leedo is proud of the skill and professionalism of our fabricators. We have partnered with true artisans to provide our customers with the best fit and finish in the industry. Granite sourced and fabricated in China has tremendous cost benefits compared to domestic granite, so customers are provided with a high quality product at one of the lowest price points in the industry.


Leedo Granite Countertop Program

How the Granite Program Works: Granite Product Selection Process Color: The first step in the process is for a customer to choose the type of granite they want. While granite is found around the world in hundreds of colors and patterns, each type of granite has its own unique characteristics, and many of them are unsuitable for countertop fabrication and installation. Leedo has narrowed this selection to approximately 25 types of granite that have been specially selected by Leedo based on their strength and customer appeal. Thickness: Customers must also specify the thickness of their granite. Granite countertops are available in thicknesses of 3cm in the kitchens and 2cm or 3cm in the vanities. Leedo recommends 3cm granite countertops because they provide added strength and rigidity, which reduces the risk of breakage. They also provide a cleaner and more robust edge for finishing. Edge Profile: Leedo offers 3 standard edge profile options for 3cm thick granite. If 2cm granite is selected, only an eased flat edge can be provided. Splash: Leedo offers backsplash and sidesplash that is 2cm thick and 4 inches tall. All splash comes with a polished, slightly eased edge. Sinks: The selection of sinks is a critical step in the Granite Selection Process because sink and faucet hole cuts are made early in the fabrication process. Leedo provides customers a range of standard sink options that are easily integrated with Leedo granite countertops. The selection of undermount sinks adds cost due to the need to polish the sinkhole edge. Customer Note: Measures of Granite Quality Granite is a naturally occurring material that experiences variations in color, tone, granularity, and pattern. Customers should expect for colors to drift between different pieces of granite and even within the same piece of granite. Surface variations such as veining, fissures and pitting are common in granite and should not be considered a defect. Customers looking to eliminate these variations should consider other countertop options. Leedo provides a range of other laminate and solid surface countertops that provide a more consistent finish.

Leedo Granite Countertop Program

How the Granite Program Works (continued) Placing an Order Pricing & Contract: Leedo recognizes the importance of establishing the scope and cost of project early in the process. In order to produce a first estimate of a project’s cost, Leedo needs to receive the architectural plans or shop drawings for a project. Those plans are used to estimate the total square footage of granite needed and the amount of finishing work that will be required, and a preliminary price can be provided. Leedo will be able to provide a firm price and a contract once the customer has completed the Granite Selection Process described on the previous page. A finalized contract, as well as other terms and conditions, must be completed prior to any material being ordered for a project. Design Verification: Leedo’s Design department undertakes a thorough review of the project designs in order to ensure that the countertop requirements can be satisfied. Not all countertop designs can be accommodated, because granite is extremely heavy, and large countertops can be more likely to break depending on their design characteristics. Additionally, larger countertops are bulky and difficult to maneuver, which can present problems during installation. Countertop dimensions are evaluated during the design process to ensure that weight and length restrictions are satisfied, and design modifications are proposed if required. Customer Note: Scheduling To fulfill granite orders, Leedo requires a minimum of 90 days following customer selection of granite, customer approval of shop drawings, customer confirmation of construction schedule, execution of the contract and granite addendum, and receipt of a deposit. If a project cannot accommodate those scheduling needs, a customer should consider locally available sources of granite or consider other countertop options with shorter lead times. Customer Note: Seams As with all countertops, seams must be placed between adjoining pieces of granite. The location and number of seams depends on the specifics of the design and layout of the countertops. While Leedo attempts to minimize the number and size of seams, some seams will always be necessary. Leedo’s primary goal is to ensure the structural integrity of the countertop. It is not possible to achieve an exact match in color or pattern when seaming granite together.

Leedo Granite Countertop Program 3


Leedo Granite Countertop Program

How the Granite Program Works (continued) Delivery and Installation Scheduling: Leedo Field Managers are responsible for managing modifications to a project’s construction schedule. Field Managers conduct weekly job site visits and multiple delivery schedule verifications while a project is under construction. Customers that can take fewer deliveries (by providing secure onsite storage) can receive better pricing. Delivery: Leedo Field Managers visit each project to inspect for field conditions that may affect the unload and distribution of the granite. Field Managers review access to the room where the granite will be placed; conduct a review of plumbing, gas, and electrical locations; ensure that the sink will fit into the cabinet base; and check the desired position of the faucets to determine if there is sufficient space for the faucet to fully operate. A lull is required to unload and distribute the granite into the units. Installation: Leedo’s Installers install granite countertops to exacting specifications. Installer training is critical to the success of Leedo’s Granite Program. Leedo requires installers to complete an extensive documented training program that includes all aspects of installation. To become a lead installer additional training is needed in understanding and responding to our customer's expectations. On projects that involve very large pieces, difficult access to the room or a combination of the two, additional crew may be needed. Customer Note: Field Measurement Changes Given the long lead times, Leedo fabricates granite countertops based on customer approved shop drawings, rather than actual field measurements. Because of this, customers must agree that the measurements from the approved shop drawings will not deviate from the field measurements more than ±3.0”. If measurements change beyond the ±3.0” tolerance, replacement granite will need to be procured at additional cost to the customer.

Customer Note: Delivery Date Changes Granite arrives from China 90 days after it is ordered. Because of this, first delivery dates can be pushed back but not pulled forward. On later shipments after the initial delivery, Leedo has more flexibility to try to accommodate schedule changes. Scheduling flexibility on later shipments will be accommodated if possible.

Designing for Success With a project as complicated as your project, detailed and thoughtful planning has a huge impact on your eventual success. Kitchens are important to renters. You need the most value, function, and sizzle that your budget can possibly provide. That doesn’t happen by accident. For you to be successful, you must design for success: • Get the best possible value out of your budget – in look and function • Provide efficient, functional kitchens • Comply with all building codes • Prevent conflicts between cabinet installation and appliances • Prevent conflicts between cabinet installation and countertops • Clearly instruct installers on exactly how to install every unit Leedo understands that a skillful, clear, and complete design package is essential to successful kitchen installations. The shop submittals and supporting documents drive clarity in communicating the defined scope with our customers and instructs our installers how to execute the plan at the job site. In order to maximize on-time delivery, installation, and final punch; all parties must agree on all aspects of the plan to allow proper execution the first time. We work with our customers to produce agreed shop submittals, making it as easy and painless for our customers as possible. Streamlining this process for our customers is a key goal of our design department. Leedo’s CONSULTATIVE APPROACH • The first step in design is to validate the scope of the project. • We start our shop drawing submittal process with a conversation where all the decision-makers can come together to share their concerns and questions, including the developer, GC, designer, architect, and Leedo’s design manager. This conversation can eliminate a surprising amount of paperwork and wasted time on everybody’s part. • One item on the agenda for this design meeting is to discuss and clarify applicable building codes. • We discuss and agree on the submittal approval process. VALUE AND FUNCTIONALITY • Leedo has a methodical process where we review every component of your kitchen design to maximize value for the developer and the renter. We scrutinize every door, drawer, cabinet placement, and appliance placement – looking for opportunities to deliver a better looking, more functional, and less expensive kitchen. • Part of our review process includes analysis of countertop installation, appliance installation, and mechanicals trim. We plan to make the whole project successful, not just ourselves. Great planning supports Leedo’s Installation services team. We put our installers and your job site management in a position where they can review each kitchen layout in detail before the job starts and agree on requirements for the framers and mechanical trades. They can agree on “rules of engagement” on how we should proceed if we encounter minor variations to plan. We use our plans to measure every unit, note any changes or special circumstances, and order for the precise cabinets required for every wall. Then with every cabinet delivery, we provide a copy of the same marked-up measuring sheets as installations to our installers. Leedo provides skillful, professional, and easy to work with design services as an essential first step toward a successful project and a happy customer.


Installation, Our Key to Success Multifamily builders require on-time delivery, installation, and final punch. Leedo has installed more than 7 million cabinets since our founding in 1971. We complete more than 25,000 kitchens every year. Leedo understands that a successful project is one that installs on time, the first time. Leedo’s installation services team focuses on three goals: preventing problems, completing units on-time, and tracking & communicating our progress. PREVENTING PROBLEMS • Leedo carefully screens installers’ experience, skills, background, and references. Then we train and certify those qualified installers. • Leedo evaluates the design of every unit and compares it with as-built conditions on your job site to prevent design errors or installation problems caused by framing, electrical, plumbing, trim, or other trade interference. • We schedule a pre-construction meeting (PCM) to agree on the work flow process and your expectations, gaining insight that makes this partnership successful. • Leedo installs sample units and inspects them with you and your development partners to make sure we know what’s required to meet everyone’s standards. COMPLETING UNITS ON-TIME • More than 98% of our orders from our factory ship complete and deliver on-time. • Leedo inspects and inventories every order upon delivery, so we know early on if there were any damages in transit or any missing items. • Every job-site has an inventory of often required repair and replacement items – including countertop blanks, trim, accessories, splashes, and repair materials. • When needed, our factory produces replacement parts in three production days. TRACKING & COMMUNICATING OUR PROGRESS • Leedo sets our measuring, manufacturing, and installation schedule to meet your delivery requirements. We’ll be there whenever you want us. • We have a formal schedule of job-site visits for our field managers, and we set an agenda for each visit. On this schedule, our field managers measure, inspect installation, inspect punch and schedule deliveries. Leedo tracks the status of every unit in a centralized, on-line database. At any moment, we know the • status of every measurement, order, delivery, installation, and RFI. Leedo believes that precision in installation management is the best route to customer success, customer satisfaction, and eliminating waste. We think of ourselves as a provider of installed, complete kitchens. We have invested more money and more top management focus on installation than any other cabinet company. We have hired a great team, worked out an effective plan, and built great management systems to set ourselves and our customers up for success. Let us show you our installation services team in action.
