All the negative feedback about this company on the net is absolutely true in regards to the Sarasota branch included. Unfortunately I am a victim too of the gross incompetence and unproffesionalism from the get-go. Problems with everything, I MEAN EVERYTHING. Several visits by different employees for the same problem--nothing geting done right or on time, never having what they need, not showing up, taking months & months. Your whole life will be turned upside down as you are at their incompetent, arrogant mercy. Save yourself alot of grief --go elsewhere.

All Kirkplan Kitchen locations need to be shut down and reported to the Attorney General. They installed a kitchen for me with substandard materials (delaminated, drawer fronts falling off, etc) and won't honor their warranty. The Port Charlotte office claims that their supplier is at fault and went bankrupt. The person running the Port Charlotte Kirkplan office claims that he too went bankrupt and closed his doors because of it yet he now still works for Kirkplan in Sarasota (probably doing the same thing). Anyone looking to install a new kitchen needs to run, not walk, away from these Brit clowns!

I am very shocked in what i just read and if i had seen this I would not have called Kirkplan Kitchens to my house. Maybe I am just lucky. I had Kirkplan do my kitchen and three bathrooms. I had all wood cabinets installed with Granite countertops. I can not say enough about my project everyone and I mean everyone was professional and extremely knowledgable. Tim Krone my sales person impressed me so much with his designs and his knowledge of the materials. Josh my installer is a craftsman and a gentleman, we enjoyed having him in our home and he was a delight to have around for all the extensive work that was carried out by him. Since our project was completed i have reccommended two of my close friends. Both of them did kitchen projects with Kirkplan Kitchens and where also very happy. The reason why I am defending this company is that I have been in Business myself for over thirty years and was very impressed with the setup and how they conduct themselves. This is very rare in florida. THANKYOU KIRKPLAN.

I have been in the painting business for 25 yrs. and saw work done by this co. for 10 yrs. and wonder how they have gotten by for so long !!! It's unbelievable the shoddy work they do and I've seen. Schnider, you are very lucky if you're happy with their work. I wonder if they've been reported to the "Better Business Bureau"?

The person who made a positive comment about this company is probably employed by them. I used Kirkplan back in 1994 and it was the worst thing I ever did. I've since told everyone I know to avoid them more so than the plague. The fitted a kitchen for me with substandard equipment, the worst workmanship I've ever seen. They didn't even paint or tile the kitchen for us but had the cheek to charge in excess of £8000. Anyone with sense would avoid this company!

Don't you people get references BEFORE you hire out work? People that get ripped off are the ones that are guilty!

I went with Kirkplan of Sarasota for a renovated kitchen because my previous cabinet maker had retired. Upon meeting them I was very impressed with there vision and design expertise and they made great promises...... Unfortunately NONE of their promises came true. They lied. They had horrible service. They did not return phone calls. I could tolerate any of those if the quality was good, unfortunately they did a HORRIBLE job. DO NOT USE THEM!

After years of trying to get Kirkplan in Sarasota to remedy shoddy cabinets I am giving up and hiring someone else to fix their bad work. Was told by Kirkplan that the manufacturer of the cabinet doors had gone out of business and that they could not honor the 10 year warranty. Their only solution was for me to purchase new cabinet doors to the tune of $3,000. Their material are inferior and their customer service is the worst I have ever experienced.
