What is Refinishing?
Cabinet refinishing means that you keep all components of your existing cabinetry and simply change the color or the finish which is often completed via hand sanding or chemically stripping the existing finish from the wood, then applying new paint or stain.
If budget is your main consideration, refinishing is often the cheaper option. Estimates have shown that refinishing cabinets costs about 2/3 the cost of refacing, and about 1/5th the cost of installing replacement cabinets.
What is Refacing?
Refacing is a great way to give your kitchen or bathroom an instant new look with doors, drawers, skins and molding in an updated color and door style. The possibilities are endless! We will custom match any door and drawer size, so the process is very easy and end result flawless.
The main reason to reface rather than replace with new cabinetry is to keep the existing countertops and not incur that additional expense. Some homes have great granite, but the cabinets are worn, dated or just plain ugly and that is where refacing is the perfect choice.
