Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing: What to Expect

Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing: What to Expect

Are you thinking about getting your kitchen cabinets refinished but not sure about the cost, timeframe, process and all the other factors involved? 

I will take you through the steps of the process so you know exactly what is involved in order to get a factory smooth professional finish.

An in-home complimentary consult determines what finish is best based on cabinet type (laminate, painted or wood), condition and what appeals to the homeowner.

The cost of a kitchen cabinet refinish typically starts at $800.00 and up based on size, condition and any additional carpentry or modifications.

Scheduling your job secured with a 50% deposit and signed contract.
Once job starts, homeowner will be contacted as to each day's activity.

The project time frame typically ranges from 7-14 days from start to finish without the use of your kitchen for 3-5 days.

Our cabinet refinishing process
ensures the highest level of durability and longevity for a ultra smooth professional finish:

Step 1: Custom carpentry, embellishments & extensive prep. After design consultation, all doors, drawers and shelves are removed and taken off-site to our workshop. This allows for kitchen use until cabinet box work begins onsite. Basic carpentry (e.g. crown and light rail molding) may be done at this point as well.

Step 2: All cabinetry components thoroughly sanded and cleaned. Doors, drawers and shelves are thoroughly sanded and cleaned off-site at our warehouse. Any contact paper and glue residual removed-any holes are filled. Once on-site, we follow the same procedure for your cabinet boxes-all surrounding areas are protected and area is "tented off."

Step 3: Cabinet top-grade priming. Once cabinets are properly prepped, we use a high-quality cabinet grade primer, and meticulously spray the cabinet surface to ensure bonding.

Step 4: Basecoat/Topcoat using cabinet-grade specialty paint specifically designed for cabinets. This paint proves of higher quality, and is more durable than any other paint product. The basecoat/topcoat is "sprayed" for a factory smooth finish. We never roll or brush!

Step 5: Thorough cleanup and installation of all cabinet doors, drawers and cabinet hardware. A final walk through will be completed that this time to ensure satisfaction.
