FAQ's

HOW MUCH DO KITCHENS COST?

This is hard to narrow down. A typical refinishing job can run you 3000-5000.00 depending on the size of your kitchen. If you want all new doors and drawer fronts you can double that. A new kitchen anywhere from 35,000 and up.

HOW LONG WILL MY PROJECT TAKE?

A typical refinishing job will take 5-7 days. If we are adding new doors or carpentry items, you can expect another 1-2 days. Countertops will add to the schedule as well as a backsplash. We coordinate the entire project for you, so it is seamless. We let you know when to schedule your own contractors if that is a direction you take. We will provide a detailed calendar for you to review. If you are doing a full remodel of your kitchen or bathroom project, it will take 4-6 weeks.

WHAT IS REFINISHING?

If you like the cabinet doors you have now, and they are in good shape, refinishing is for you. It is the most economical way to update your space. If your cabinets are laminate, maple, MDF or cherry you are a great candidate for this In general, cabinets can be stained darker or painted. Oak cabinets are very poor candidates for refinishing. If you refinish them in a solid color, the grain will show through the paint so we recommend all new doors and drawer fronts.

THERE ARE REFACING COMPANIES WHO PROVIDE NEW DOORS/DRAWER FRONTS AND USE VENEER ON THE FACE FRAMES? IS THIS WHAT YOU DO?

No. We do not add plastic or veneer to any face frames. We believe in refinishing the entire box so it all matches. Over time wood doors may yellow and the veneer may stay the same. We can also paint the inside of your cabinets, so they match your new doors and drawer fronts.
