Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

How much do Werever outdoor cabinets cost?

There are two ways to find out how much Werever’s outdoor cabinets cost:

  1. Try our FREE outdoor kitchen design service. You’ll get an exact quote per your project’s specifications.
  2. Look at these real customer projects with pricing. We’ve shared a variety of actual customer projects, design documents, and cabinet cost.

Are the cabinets waterproof?

Yes. They are made from solid marine-grade High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) which is 100% impervious to water. The cabinets can be completely soaked.

Do the cabinets have sealed doors (with a gasket)?

No.  They are not watertight. They are waterPROOF. There is a difference between those terms.  Water will do nothing to harm the structure or integrity of the cabinetry.  While the gaps are very small between the doors and drawers, they technically are not gasketed with a watertight seal.  For most applications this is plenty sufficient to keep your items safe from the weather.

Are the cabinets made from PVC?

No! Werever’s outdoor cabinets are made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), not PVC. PVC is lighter and weaker than HDPE. It is brittle. PVC has to be painted because is not UV-stabilized. Make sure you’re not shopping for PVC cabinets incorrectly assuming they’re the same as Werever’s HDPE cabinetry. Read more about why you should not buy PVC outdoor cabinets.

What is Marine Grade Polymer?

This term is a generic marketing phrase that doesn’t mean anything specific. Many things that are called “Marine Grade Polymer” are unsuitable for building outdoor cabinetry. To get a better understanding of this term, read more about polymer.

How do Werever cabinets differ from competing cabinets?

Werever’s proprietary construction methods are unique within the outdoor cabinet industry. Interior cabinet construction techniques don’t work well when building outdoor cabinets due to temperature changes, UV exposure, moisture, etc. Read this page for an overview of our construction methods.

Can these cabinets go outside in direct sunlight?

Absolutely! They are specifically designed with a permanent, UV protected HDPE material engineered to withstand the harshest outdoor elements. They are UV stabilized for direct sunlight exposure. You don’t have to do anything to protect them from the sun. By comparison, PVC cabinets do not withstand direct exposure to the sun without a painted-on protectant. Be sure to read the fine-print if you are comparing Werever to PVC cabinets. Other manufacturers actually caution against putting outdoor cabinetry in direct sunlight!

Can Werever cabinets be installed on casters?

No. While technically you could swap the leveling legs for casters, Werever does not recommend using our cabinets to build a movable island. The cabinets are too heavy to make it practical to move. Since an important aspect of installing any cabinetry, indoor or outdoor, is to make sure they are perfectly level, casters are not a good idea. Werever does not warrant cabinets that have been modified to be installed on casters.

Can I get these locally?

We ship beautiful outdoor kitchens nationwide, every day. We build our cabinetry with computer-controlled machinery, so our cabinets fit exactly. You can also contact us to find a dealer in your market.

What kind of grill should I use?

You must use a grill with a factory-manufactured insulated liner (or heat jacket). For your convenience, Werever does offer a full line of outdoor appliances, but you are welcome to purchase your grill elsewhere.

Werever recommends Lynx Grills for the best fit and finish, customer support, warranty, and cooking features.

Other popular grill brands can also be used and have insulating liners available include Sedona, Twin Eagles, Fire Magic, Alfresco, DCS, Del Sol, Delta Heat, American Outdoor Grill, Bull, and others. (You may find another brand with an insulating liner as well.)

How long will it take to receive my order?

Your order will ship approximately three to four weeks from the date you place your order. The shipping time may vary slightly depending on seasonal demand. If you are planning around a specific schedule, we can help!

Please ask your sales professional for current production lead times. If you need a guaranteed ship date, please notify your designer and ask for a “Commitment Date”.

Are Werever cabinets easy to install?

If you can operate basic hand tools such as a drill, a level, screwdrivers, and perhaps a circular saw if you have to trim a filler, then yes, these are easy to install.  If you are not comfortable with tools, you would be better suited to hire a handyman to help install these cabinets.  Each cabinet arrives fully assembled, countertop ready. Cabinets easily attach to walls with screws, and attach to each other with stainless-steel bolts (provided).

Be cautious when buying “outdoor” cabinetry without a leveling system. There are options on the market that have nice pictures, but they make for an almost impossible real-world installation if you aren’t installing on a perfectly level surface. Unlike interior kitchens, outdoor kitchen spaces are typically sloped for drainage purposed intentionally. In a clinical, marketing picture of other outdoor cabinet systems you won’t see this issue. In the field, it will be a nightmare to resolve. Werever has taken that problem out of the equation.

Do you provide countertops?

No. A proper fitting countertop needs to be templated on site based on the exact installation. For that reason, we don’t provide countertops. You can use granite (recommended), acrylic (Corian), quartz (Silestone or Zodiaq). All of these are available at Home Depot, Lowe’s, or from any local countertop company. You can use our free design to shop price for your countertop locally. You’ll find that the countertop company will price the project based on the design, but they’ll want to come on site once the cabinets are set and make a precise template.

Do you install?

Within our local market we can help with installation services. We may have a dealer in your area, so please call to ask. These cabinets are an easy do-it-yourself project. Or, you can have your builder or handyman handle the whole project on your behalf. The majority of our cabinet projects are installed by people using our cabinetry for the first time… and these projects are always successful. You can look in our photo gallery for step-by-step pictures of an outdoor kitchen installation. Read Werever’s Installation Instructions for more information.

How are Werever cabinets shipped?

Cabinets are shipped fully assembled. For more information about pallet size and weight, read about our shipping details.

We chose our outdoor cabinets/kitchen primarily for its durability. The units are on our rooftop deck and exposed to all-day sun during the summer and the cold and snow that we experience in northern Ohio. We purchased the units two years ago and they have weathered the changing elements with no problems since their installation. We heartily recommend Werever Outdoor Kitchens.read more

I found Werever on the Web as I was searching for non metal kitchen cabinets that would have been noisy and too sterile looking for our treed property and natural landscape. We purchased several outdoor kitchen cabinet modules from Werever in 2013. They are still beautiful and held up wonderfully against our sometimes harsh winters and hot humid summers. Our experience with the service has equally been wonderful. The cabinets were made using our measurements from a great distance and they fit perfectly! The designer was very helpful as well and worked with us via email. Production and delivery were smooth and on time. Border and customs passing was also well arranged. Highly recommend the company and the product. Thank you Werever team!Catherine BélangerOttawa, Ontario, Canadaread more

We purchased Werever cabinets over 8 years ago and we love them! They have held up wonderfully in the extremes of WV weather... 90s in the summer and below zero in the winter! The color has not changed a bit; the hinges and drawers work as well as they did the day we had them installed. They are super easy to clean and durable. Werever did some custom routing on the panels for the back side of our island; it was exactly what we wanted and looks great! We absolutely recommend Werever cabinets for your outdoor kitchen!read more

Weather has not permitted me to get a good picture since I read this email. However, my cabinets are one of the best outside investments we’ve made. The cabinets are durable and look just as great today as they did the day they were installed. We added a granite top and a durable stainless steel bar sink and faucet. It’s perfect for our needs. If we had the space, I’m sure we’d add more cabinets. Thank you for a great product that is well worth the price. Sent from my iPhoneread more

I have had my outdoor cabinet for several years and it still looks brand new. I did a lot of research before ordering and felt these were the best. Once ordered the production and shipping went as expected. My cabinets arrived on pallets and required minimal assembly to attach the Adjustable feet. After a few months I did notice the bottom board of the drawer unit had warped, preventing the drawer from closing. I contacted customer service by email and sent photos of the issue. They promptly sent an entire new unit! Great customer service! These are simply the best cabinets and I expect they will outlast me.read more
