Our most durable design yet is here.

In 2017, innovation led to the introduction of DuraCraft cabinets. For us, the first release was just the beginning. Since then, we’ve been doing research, determining how we can continue to improve and innovate — without adding costs. Today, DuraCraft cabinets are still exclusive to Clayton Built® homes, and are better than ever.

Introducing the new DuraCraft — cabinets that look outstanding, work better, and are made to withstand the tests of time like never before.

Better by Design:
The DuraCraft Difference

Exclusively available to Clayton Built® homes, DuraCraft cabinets are an affordable, longer-lasting alternative to paper-wrapped cabinetry. After extensive research, we’ve incorporated new, better construction methods, continued our innovative take on design, and deepened our commitment to making longer-lasting cabinetry that won’t break the bank. Unlike paper-wrapped cabinets, DuraCraft cabinets are water and scratch resistant. Our designs pair timeless and trend-driven colors with textured finishes that mimic real wood—something paper can’t deliver. The fit and finish of DuraCraft cabinets is second-to-none, using a thick, water-resistant PVC edge-banding for all cabinets and shelving.

Better looking. Longer lasting. Always innovative. The DuraCraft difference is in the design.

Why Duracraft

Still delivering on our trademark durability, style and water-resistance, our newest cabinets push the envelope with improved construction and eye-pleasing design features.


Our new DuraCraft cabinets are built with innovative dowel construction to replace v-nail construction on earlier models. Cabinets made with the new dowel construction method are sturdier than those made with v-nail construction, and seams interlock tight to become nearly invisible. Say goodbye to gaps and peeling, and say hello to good looks, inside and out.

Design Innovation

Speaking of good looks, our color selection is always changing to meet our customers where they are. Our design team chooses both timeless and on-trend options that will add style to any home. More than nice to look at, the cabinet surface texture features a realistic, raised grain for a difference you can both see and feel. Modern, rustic, and traditional profile options take design possibilities to another level.


DuraCraft's sturdy scratch- and water-resistant material has you covered, outperforming paper in the kitchen, bathroom and even on trim and baseboards. Made to go the distance on every surface, the durable PVC material that gives DuraCraft cabinets their signature strength is a Clayton Built® exclusive product.

Features & Benefits

New Dowel Construction

Interlocking seams mean better functionality and better-looking cabinet facings, front and back. Overall, the look is more modern and elegant. Dowel construction provides a more modern, elegant look with tighter seams and improved opening and closing functionality over time.

Water Resistance

Durability, performance, longer life in high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Resists water better than paper-wrapped cabinets and allows you to clean the surface with everyday, household cleaners, unlike paper.

Scratch Resistance

The pvc-wrap material DuraCraft uses is scratch resistant and stronger than paper, meaning better durability, performance and a longer life in high traffic areas.


Better fit and finish for door and top trim and baseboards. Allows for more appealing drawer designs (not just a flat front typically seen with paper) as well as more intricate style and rail designs that weren’t possible with paper (frail material couldn’t handle the contour detail).


Cleaner, better-looking overall fit and finish than paper. Textures that are smooth to the touch, or realistic like wood grain

Color Options

Classic and on-trend selections always available to meet customer preferences. Our design team purposefully crafts each color and design that will add style to any home.


DuraCraft cabinets come standard with no upcharge, which means a better product at the same price point for both retailers and customers.

Profile Options

Modern, rustic, and traditional profile options are available to choose from and can help customize the look of almost any kitchen.
