Hi guys,

We currently live in rented accommodation and our son overflowed our kitchen sink. It has caused a lot of water damage to the fronts which we need to change out before our next inspection. The kitchen was install a year ago so still should be available to buy but cant find it anywhere. Has anyone got a clue where this kitchen is sold or the name of the design? You would really be saving me a lot of hassle with the landlords.

No idea at all - looks like left over stock from the 80s .
Is it not easier to just ask the landlord? They'd have to be a right n0b to kick up a fuss if you're genuinely going to fix it well yourself. Doors are so easy to swap (but how are the edges of the carcasses?)

It may save you a runaround.

do you have insurance ??
to cause that amount off damage theres a fair chance the floor may be damaged as well and even further away :dunno:
how long was the sink left overflowing and how much [small amount or loads flowing]??
and how long between accident and damage becoming apparent ??

We've used Magicman on a few jobs - they came in at around £300 to £350 a day. Even they struggle to deal with delaminated foil wraps or excessively chipped melamine faced chipboard. TBH, as Barry says, those doors are 1980s throwbacks and it would probably be cheaper to replace the lot! (as long as you avoid B&Q)

The first thing that occurred to me was much the same as BA says above. How much water? Where else has it "got in"? And what unseen damage has been done?
As already said, it's unlikely you'll find a match. I'd tell the landlord, and offer to change the fronts.

Actually, Dave, the carcasses always seem to stand up better to water than the doors unless water is left to stand in them for months. If the edging is coming away it can be replaced with iron stuff and trimmed in situ providing the edges of the chipboard are dry and unblown.

OP - any chance of a photo of the insides of the units?

I agree replacing all doors from somewhere like howdens may be a good option.
