cabinet resurfacing/refacing

Common FAQs

WHAT IS CABINET REFACING?

If the layout of your kitchen is good and your cabinets are structurally sound, then “refacing” may be the best service for you. Cabinet refacing is the process of taking the existing cabinets and giving them a new look.

This is done by applying a new color or finish to the existing cabinet boxes then selecting new style doors that are then manufactured to fit the existing openings and sizes. This creates the “look” of new cabinets at a fraction of the cost of new.

DO YOU PAINT CABINETS?

Yes and no. Cabinet resurfacing done correctly is not really “painting” the cabinets. We use specialized products designed to be more durable than paint and to resist the peeling and chipping that often occurs with hand painted cabinets.

We prepare the surface by removing the old finish and then applying a new finish by spraying on a smooth factory finish. This not only looks better but is harder and more durable than paint.

WHAT COLOR AND DOOR STYLE CHOICES DO I HAVE?

The limit of choices is the limit of your imagination. Pick any color from anywhere and we can resurface your cabinets to match. We offer 100’s of door styles and finishes. Bring us your ideas and we can make them reality at a fraction of the cost of new cabinets.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

Most jobs can be completed in 7-10 days. Bigger kitchens will take longer and smaller ones less.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

All cabinets and drawers will need to be emptied. We will take all the doors and drawers to our shop where they will be resurfaced. The cabinet boxes will be prepped on site and resurfaced there.

The area where the cabinets are located will be walled off using plastic while we are working. All together you can expect a disruption of about 7-10 days.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

Cabinet resurfacing is very affordable. Most kitchens can be completely transformed for $2,000 – $3,000. Refacing will add about $2,000 for new doors.

This of course will vary with much larger or smaller size kitchens. In every case it is much less expensive than a complete remodel and tear out.
