New Leaf was founded in 2008 by Robert Cole and Shane Beck. Our mission was simple. Feed our families during the recession. Through hard work and dedication we quickly became a premier general contractor in the Tacoma and surrounding area remodeling kitchens, bathrooms, and distressed properties. The more remodels that we completed that involved any type of cabinetry, the more frustrated we became with the local cabinet market. It seemed that our only options were to either overpay for custom cabinets or suffer the consequences of using cheap Chinese cabinets.
We were equally as frustrated with the countertop market. The majority of stone fabricators in the Puget Sound area had proved to us to be ridiculously over priced, unreliable, using inferior products, or willing to sacrifice quality for speed. Unsatisfied with the options at our disposal we became determined to create a better way.
We started by building our own counter fabrication facility in Tacoma, WA. We hired a veteran stone fabricator with relentless attention to detail to run the operation and train new employees from scratch rather than risk hiring experienced fabricators with bad habits. Although our facility is small compared to some of our competition, all our fabrication is done by human hand and not a machine therefore resulting in lower overhead and cost. We nurture every slab into a beautiful counter top while taking every step necessary to ensure full customer satisfaction. Whether its a small marble island, or a full kitchen worth of new quartz counter tops, no detail is over looked.
The next step was change the status quo for custom kitchen cabinets and take it to the next level. After careful research and meetings with several large and small cabinet manufactures throughout the Pacific Northwest, we partnered with Yorktowne Cabinetry who shared our passion for delivering a quality cabinet at an affordable price. Their factory in Independence, Oregon combines state of the art technology with decades of cabinet making experience.
The best part of being a factory direct dealer of semi-custom cabinets is being able to offer a quality american made cabinet at a price anyone can afford. Although it is technically a semi-custom cabinet line, there is very little that New Leaf can not create with the extensive semi custom cabinet catalog we have at our disposal that a custom cabinet maker can - and we do it without the hefty price of a custom cabinet maker. Through the use of decorative accesories such as crown molding, matching cabinet end panels, and glass doors, we can give any kitchen a personalized design at an affordable price.
With over a hundred different door styles available with unlimited color options as well as a wide array of quartz, granite, and other natural stone counter-top choices, if you are looking for cabinets or counters in the Tacoma area, look no further.
