We have been in business for 24 yrs in Calgary, manufacturing all of our own cabinets, doors, stain & lacquer, large renovation projects. We have a CNC and can manufacture all types of cabinets, wall units etc. At the moment 90% of our work is repeated business or referrals
We had our storage room renovated into a storage/sewing room by Disciple Homes and Improvements and once we decided on cabinets and building the sewing table to accommodate my sewing machine, Desmarais Cabinets were recommended. Lou was very pleasant to deal with and knew his stuff. When we went to his shop we were shown several options to choose from. The design he came up with was great. Minh, the installer and his assistant did an excellent job in installing all the cabinets and building the sewing table, which included a hydraulic lift for the sewing machine. Work was done quickly with great workmanship and service. We would not hesitate in using Desmarais Cabinets again for our next project. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting quality cabinets and work.

The cabinets supplied are overpriced, and the work on the countertop shoddy.
We were "advised" (against my better judgement) to go with the more labour intensive, and therefore more expensive countertop, which resulted in shoddy work, as it already starts to delaminate after just a few months.
There was no follow up after the job was finished, as Mr. Desmarais is probably to busy catering to his "big" customers in more deserving homes.
Dear Mr Krynen,
This is the first I heard of this, why wait 3 years to bring this up? If I recall correctly this was a very small vanity with laminate top. When your wife came and did the final payment she said it was wonderful. She said it is too bad we did not know you before because we had work done and the workmanship was not acceptable, what changed here, do you live in the same house?
As for price people comment that our prices are better than Ikea and Lowes, how can you beat that?
I am baffled! Call me and we will remedy whatever has to be remedied.
Desmarais Cabinets provided us with fantastic quality kitchen cabinets. Excellent craftsmanship and ideas - all our friends love our kitchen. Also installed windows for us. Install was quick, clean, and when we had a couple of minor issues, they came back to fix it right away. They also replaced an old wooden entrance way railing with a beautiful stained wood and wrought iron railing. We would recommend Desmarais Cabinets to anyone looking for high quality work!
We had seen Desmarais at a Home Show years ago and used them for some work in our bathroom shortly after. In 2014 we undertook a complete renovation or our kitchen - a challenging space in an older home. Lou and his team worked with our needs and space and delivered a beautiful product, on time and budget. We also did hardwood floors at the time and reconfigured some stairs and a railing in our family area - the design work and finished product was great. All the trades and Lou's workers were pleasant to deal with.
