Refinishing restores the original look, while refacing goes further, replacing doors and drawers but not the cupboard's boxes. Choose based on your cabinet's condition.

  • Need Clear Coat?
    Inquire about the need for protective clear coating to preserve the paint. When done correctly, coating the painting isn't necessary. Homeowners often face issues like yellowing or chipping of cabinets due to improper painting methods or using outdated cabinet paints. Opt for skilled painters and high-quality paint to ensure a durable surface and long-lasting original color. Choose experience for lasting results.
  • Long-lasting Cabinet Paint?
    An essential concern regarding kitchen cabinet painting is the possibility of chipping or peeling shortly after the job. The outcome largely hinges on the expertise of the painter. A skillfully painted cabinet can be highly durable, lasting a lifetime without the need for repainting anytime soon. However, if the painting process is improperly executed, the paint may peel over time, necessitating a redo. This issue often arises when inexperienced painters handle kitchen cabinet projects. Many homeowners have recently reported problems with peeling paint on their cabinets. Upon investigation, we discovered that the root cause was often the lack of a proper workshop in the companies hired for the job. Instead, some resorted to spray-painting the doors in unsuitable places like garages or subcontracting the task to cut costs. Using a garage for DIY or minor projects might be acceptable, but it can severely compromise the finishing due to temperature fluctuations, dust, and other factors. Moreover, some shops tend to take shortcuts when handling doors' spray painting since they are not directly dealing with the end clients. To address these concerns, our kitchen cabinet painting service offers a five-year “no peel” warranty. We pride ourselves on using professional employees and a well-equipped, organized facility to ensure the best results for your project.
