Kitchen re-facing is definitely an art form. Every kitchen we have done has been unique. With each home we enter, we measure and cover the side panels, front facing, doors, drawers, and change all hardware including hinges and handles. We also add cabinets when requested, change existing ones, and put in fancy touches like crown molding, gallery rail on cabinet tops, glass doors, etc. We can change the action of drawers to allow for smoother riding with new slides and internal boxes. All sanding and finish work is done in our shop. Most houses require approximately 2-4 days of installation with minimal mess in the home. We clean up after ourselves when have completed the job, leaving nothing for you to do but enjoy your new kitchen.

Kitchen re-facing can add many thousands of dollars to the value of a home, yet costing you as little as 1/10th the price of new custom built cabinets.

The first process in re-facing a kitchen is to come to your home and measure all the openings for the doors and drawers. We then get the supplies for the facing itself, which is 1/4" SOLID wood for the face, and 1/4" finish grade cabinet plywood for the sides and under cabinets (under cabinet is an option). Our method of using 1/4" solid wood face is not commonly used. It is a method we invented for longer more durable use in your kitchen. More common methods for kitchen re-facing is to use 1/64" veneer, or plywood on the face. We use the solid wood face method as a way to prevent heat from loosening up veneer, and to have the capabilities of touching up in the event of a fair sized scratch, which plywood will not allow.

Doors and drawer fronts are ordered rather than custom built in our shop. There are manufacturers across the country that do nothing but build kitchen cabinets doors and drawers. This allows us to keep YOUR cost of goods down, as we can order the highest quality components for your kitchen at a lower cost than we can make them. When we have ordered and received the doors and drawer fronts, finish them and apply your new hardware, we are ready to come into your home. Your entire kitchen is spray finished before we come into your home to complete your project.

Once we are in your home, we remove all the old doors and drawer fronts. We apply all the new sides to the cabinets, and then apply the new face. We fill all nail holes (pneumatically nailed for minimal sized holes), and install your new doors and drawer fronts. That's it! We pick up our mess, sweep your floors, remove all sawdust from your outside area (from cutting), throw away all trash, and you can now enjoy your new kitchen. The cost of your new kitchen re-facing should have just saved you an enormous amount compared to new custom built and installed cabinets, yet making your kitchen appear as if you just had new installed.
