Hi, I’m Michael Hartel, Founder of Cabinet IQ .

We help people build dream homes by transforming ugly spaces into functional masterpieces.

When I remodeled my first home it was a nightmare. The process was stressful and overwhelming. I felt confused and didn’t know where to start.


Most remodeling companies I met with didn’t offer expert guidance with product selection. Finding the cabinet, countertop and tile combinations on my own was frustrating. AND I had to drive all across town to a dozen different stores.



I wasn’t confident in any contractor’s abilities with all the remodeling nightmare stories going around. Who can I actually trust?

Does this sound familiar?

When I finally got the materials and chose a contractor, it was a struggle to get the project done ON TIME. By the end, it cost me extra time, money and headaches which I didn’t expect when I first started.

It quickly went from being an exciting home renovation to a massive pain in the @$*


There had to be a better way and I decided to engineer a streamlined remodeling process.


Cabinet IQ was born to Transform Your Home Into A Modern Masterpiece.


We combine Functional Beauty and Quality Workmanship
at an Incredible Value!


Our 2500sf showroom is filled with the top trends in cabinets and countertops. Also, our design and sales staff has decades of experience guiding homeowners through the remodeling process from Concept to Completion. Our system works and the 5-star ratings on Google and Yelp are proof.


We’re excited to embark on this journey with you and look forward to serving you.
