Refinishing is a great alternative to refacing, or installing new cabinets. Refinishing existing cabinetry costs a fraction of the price of a new installation, can be completed in far less time, and produces a much higher quality result than refacing.
The average new kitchen cabinetry setup can incur costs up to $8000 - not cheap. From demolition, to countertop installation, to plumbing, the entire process can take anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks to complete - not quick either.
Refacing costs less than installing new cabinetry, but is still about double that of refinishing because of the cost of materials. Paper-thin veneer is ironed onto the cabinet box and stained to match; over time the glue holding the veneer in place will fail, causing the veneer to peel off completely.
Upon color selection (of which there are hundreds of paints and stains to choose from), refinishing will be completed in about 3 days. We use a pre-catalyzed lacquer to create a seal that can withstand up to 20 years of everyday kitchen use. We custom order materials to match existing cabinetry if the addition of new cabinets or the replacement of broken/missing parts is required.
