Kitchen remodeling is often the most expensive home improvement project, but what if you could get an updated look at a fraction of the cost?
The cabinets in your kitchen are a main focal point, so their appearance can make or break the look of the entire kitchen. If you are unsatisfied with how your cabinets look, refacing, staining, or painting them may be the affordable solution you’re looking for.
Refacing involves changing the aesthetics of the outside of the cabinets, while keeping the cabinet boxes intact. It is therefore a perfect option for functional cabinets that just need an updated look.
We can perform the refacing, staining, and painting work that will transform the look and feel of your kitchen. Here’s how the process works:
Prior to refinishing cabinets, we take a few preparatory steps. First, the handles are removed (depending on the project).
Next, the cabinet surfaces are cleaned to remove any oils or any other contaminants commonly found in the kitchen area. We sand and re-sand throughout the process – while patching holes and caulking all cracks and seams.
The # 1 missed preparation step by painters is what is called a prime coat.
We use a special primer used to seal and prep the cabinets for a long lasting, durable topcoat of premium paint.
Many of today’s homeowners prefer refacing their existing cabinetry rather than replacing their whole kitchen. They don’t have the time and often don’t wish to make such a large investment in their kitchen.
Refacing your current cabinetry can transform your kitchen into a showcase you and your family will enjoy, and your friends will think that you’ve installed completely new ones!
What Are the Benefits Of Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing?
- Old cabinets are often of better-quality construction than those made by today’s standards.
- You can save from 30 to 70% over the cost of new.
- Dust, dirt and noise usually permeates the rest of your home during installation of new.
- Installing new cabinetry will entail the dismantling of your existing kitchen. That will require that you set up a temporary kitchen facility in another part of your home. Utilities may need to be shut off completely.
- Dismantling existing cabinetry can cause serious damage to existing fixtures, walls, electrical systems, and plumbing. This results in even more expense.
- You can save the hidden costs of installation, delivery, taxes, by updating your cabinetry versus installing new.
- Refacing returns up to 90% of your investment if you sell your home.
- Typically, refacing is a 3-5 day process vs. 1-2 months for a new kitchen.
Your existing cabinetry is already installed, leveled, plumbed, and operational. These can be difficult conditions to duplicate in the labor-intensive chore of installing new cabinet.
