The head of our company, Marty Roberts, began his career as a carpenter in his native Ireland in the 1980s. Working on primarily large scale projects in Ireland and the UK, he developed his skills and expertise in a wide variety of carpentry tasks, while nurturing a love of high quality detail work that led him to focus on interior finishing. Moving to Vancouver in the late 1990s, Marty started his own company providing residential and commercial general contracting, establishing a sterling reputation of fair and transparent relationships with both clients and sub-trades. Now based in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, Comsense Holdings specializes in kitchen and bath interiors, and follows Marty's keys to success:

We use plywood for all our cabinets instead of medium density fiberboard (MDF). Plywood is more water resistant, holds fasteners better, is lighter and stronger than MDF
Just like particle board, MDF will soak up water and other liquids like a sponge.
Because it consists of such fine particles, MDF doesn’t hold screws very well, and it’s very easy to strip the screw holes.
MDF is a less expensive material, but if you want your cabinets to last, plywood is the better choice.
30 years of experience have shown that constructing cabinets with blind dado joints makes for better cabinets. That is why we use it instead of the butt joint that is common to cheaper cabinet boxes.
