I purchased a foreclosure house recently and replacing old, moldy kitchen cabinets was at the top of my renovation list. I decided to shop for cabinets on my own rather than go through a contractor. Meades had exactly what I wanted (oak cathedral panel cabinets) for the best price. When I received the estimate for cabinets and installation, I decided to add another row of cabinets in an empty corner to increase my surface and storage space since I had the budget for it. I absolutely love my new kitchen! The only thing to note is that it takes approx. 3 weeks for cabinets to arrive after the order is placed and allow additional time past that if you schedule their installation services. I ordered just after closing on the house, and the cabinets worked into my general contractor's renovation schedule with no problem.

professional service, good prices, staff always were able to answer my remodeling questions, i was purchasing a group of doors and at checkout, the staff were quick to spot a cracked one and pointed it out to me. They could of looked the other way to make the sale, but their honesty was appreciated --- although i was now down 1 door on the project.

Sometimes with moving, doing work on a new home, and getting references from people for superior businesses who do superior work, it's hard to find a truly good deal on good quality work from someone who won't cut corners or try to screw you over. So I was amazed to find that Decatur Lock and Key, who recommended Meade's Discount Doors and More, wasn't lying when they said I should go to this place for a new front door. Meade's had truly good deals on quality solid wood, steel, and fiberglass doors (and more). I purchased a beautiful solid wood poplar front door with decorative glass/wrought iron window for $300 ($465 prehung in new frame). It was paint grade, but we stained it instead & it looks fantastic. One of the best things about Meade's is the Manager, Gary Thomas, who was very friendly & helpful, and the door installer, Jerry Bates, who was hands down THE best worker we've had working on our house so far. He was so professional and meticulous in installing our front door that he took 5 hours to get the job done right, rather than rushing through and doing a shoddy job as others likely would have done. We weren't in a hurry & were thankful for his conscientiousness and quality work. I would tell anyone to shop for doors at Meade's and to trust their installers to do good quality installations at a reasonable price, especially by Jerry Bates. I will be a return customer, and I am very discriminating, so that's saying a lot! Give Meade's a look, you'll be amazed.
