This is my first time writing a review but I felt compelled after how I was treated at this company today. I looked them up and based upon the reviews I read from this site I stopped by there while traveling for work today. I was greeted by a nice curly coated Lab followed by an extremely rude old man! I had a picture of what I wanted and asked if this might be a job they would be interested in taking on and could someone come to my home to quote the job for me. Mind you I live within 3 miles of Hayward Cabinet. Instead of agreeing to come out for a quote I was grilled on what I wanted and treated like a child to the point that I excused myself and left. If you don't want the business just say so, I'm fine with that, but don't belittle me to the point that I cease the converstation alltogether and leave. I'm sure I can find a company in Hayward who is willing to come out and quote a built in desk. I only gave one star because the dog was nice, which I told them before I left.

This guy was not professional at all. I asked if he could shorten a couple of cabinet doors for me, take out the middle panel and replace with glass.
He answered the phone by simply saying hello and a little confused. I asked if it was Hayward Cabinets and he hesitently said, "ah yea". I asked if the could cut down cabinet doors to fit my new space where I had to shorten the cabinets to put in a new microwave. He asked what were they made out of I said oak he said, "what, no no no what are they made out of?" I said wood oak, he abruptly cut me off and asked if it was a panel inside I said yes but I want it taken out and replaced with glass.... he cut me of and said, "Oh hell no no no forget that". Hayward Cabinet you got a real professional running the shop guys!

We interviewed several custom cabinet shops in the East Bay. None inspired the confidence of Old World craftsmanship and service that Karl Sr. and Jr. of Hayward Cabinets did. Meticulously installed by Karl Jr., we received compliments about the fine installation from each successive contractor that worked in the kitchen. Clearly Hayward Cabinets made every detail that followed work easily. By the way... their bid was the same as other custom shops that made cabinets but didn't install, allowing for possible finger pointing. This is a family business and you can expect the whole family to take care of all the details and produce beautiful cabinetry.

We can whole-heartedly recommend Karl Heuken and his son Karl who has custom made our kitchen cabinets (2002), our bathroom vanity, and built in stereo cabinet and under-the-stairs cabinets (2004), and now cabinets for our master bath remodel. Everything they've done is top quality, and perfect. Our contractors agree and have recommended them for other jobs. The price and materials have always been excellent. Karl Sr. has been making cabinets since he was a teenager and he's in his early 70's now and still going strong. I don't know about his other kids, but judging by Karl Jr. he's a good dad too.

Update: We moved and in 2008, Hayward Cabinet built cabinets for us for 3 bathrooms, several built in bookshelves, and also constructed a custom made bed with pull out drawers beneath it. Again, everything they did was perfect, and I am happy to re-recommend them. Regarding the person who was put off by Karl Sr., all I can say is that he is a wonderful person who does great work. He also has strong opinions and can say things in a rather gruff way. When my wife asked for a flat panel door on one of our bathroom cabinets (we were aiming for a more european modern look), he said something like, "No! You don't want that!" and explained why that is not the best way to build doors. We understood what he was saying, but still wanted it built the way we wanted, and he said fine and built it beautifully. I don't mind that he has strong opinions, and never took offense at anything that was said, and know that none was intended. Also, he did come to our house to measure openings, etc., for himself.
I've dealt with other cabinet makers and appreciate Hayward Cabinet more than ever. Always reasonably priced, in all the projects they have done for us, there has never been any mistakes, which is remarkable. And we have personally enjoyed our interactions with both Karl's. The older Karl is hard of hearing and so it is best to talk to him in person. And yes, their dog is very cute.
