I just purchased a new house. The cabinets are made out of Oak. They are unstained and appear to have a few coats of polyurathane (sp??). They were not routed with any grooves and did not come with handles. I'm not sure if all parts of the cabinets are polyurathaned because water has splashed onto them and it has discolored the wood and made the grain swell up.
I have a 1 year home warranty (oregon law on new homes)
1) Did the builder need to provide handles or grooves.
2) Did the builder need to properly finish the cabinets to protect them from liqued substances.
I hate this guy. I can't beleive how much of a half a** builder he is.
