any luck? finding the code?
yes I install all of my custom cabinets
yet home depot takes 100% for any special orders such as the granite tops. The cabinets are not custom they are stock cabinets. how can they get away with this? Is there any verbage on "special oders" in the code? I have seen it, however could not find it. These cabinets are made to the owners specs.
I would imagine this is because they are not installing the materials, and thus are not entering into service contracts for home improvement.The way the rules operate, if you SELL someone a cabinet for them to install themselves, the $1,000 or 10% rule will not apply because you are not providing a home improvement service. However, if you sell the cabinets in connection with installation, the entire transaction becomes subject to the rule. The law is clear that "home improvement contract" includes "all labor, services, and materials to be furnished and performed thereunder." (B & P § 7151.2)Again, I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX this information helps you and I wish you the best. If I have answered your question, I would be very grateful for a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you. Kindest regards.
