I just noticed that my concrete driveway is starting to spall. It is only a year and a half old.

I recently noticed the stucco on the north side of my house is bubbling in places and starting to flake off.

Four of my kitchen cabinet doors have stripped screws and are falling off.

Aspire Design Cabinets Warped

The design center company that Alpine Homes used to provide the cabinets is called Aspire Design in Utah. We upgraded the cabinets to knotty alder and spent more to get a more durable cabinet. Although we spent a bunch of extra to get nice looking and nice quality cabinets we ended up with neither. The cabinets look good from a distance but when you look closely you can see they are almost all crooked. Only a couple cabinet doors hung flush with the cabinet.

Initially, they didn't even install adjustable hinges. I complained that the cabinets all hung crooked and they said they would install adjustable hinges. After the new hinges were installed many still hung crooked. I even removed one to see how it looked and it was easily apparent that it is warped.

Additionally the cabinets were poorly finished. In every place they put a small nail there is dull mark as though the gun they used scuffed it up and they didn't try to fix it. As you may imagine there are tons of these. I have tried to wash this off but it is definitely a scuff and needs to be repaired.

Update:
Alpine Homes has warrantied these cabinet doors. They replaced a total of 6 of them. One of the new ones was warped too so they warrantied that one too. They let me keep the warped ones since they were just going to throw them away. I still have a couple warped doors but Aspire said they won't replace any more warped doors so I get to live with it.
