considering purchasing frameless construction kitchen cabinets by Ultra craft, they look real nice but i'm leary that they wont be strong or that they may have a tendency to rack, i would appreciate any advice/opinions on the pros/cons of this method of construction, thank you

Hi there,
the method is sound and a lot of the strength is in the construction. The backs can play a major part in holding the shape and strength of the boxes even just using strips on the top and bottoms. If the cabinets are laminated there is again more strength and ridgity for the laminates. Check out the name of the company first and shop around fo more examples of the same construction type. Then make your decision....MJH.

The method is indeed sound if the company does quality work.
