Add a new feel to your cabinets – think refacing
Trying to decide between cabinet refacing or an installation of brand new cabinets? The fact is that kitchen cabinets that are dated, damaged, or dull can ruin the entire look and feel of your kitchen or bathroom. A space that needs new cabinets is not only an eyesore, but it can also bring down the value of your home, so something should be done.
Often times, homeowners are reluctant to replace their cabinets because it can be expensive. A standard new installation means your cabinets will have to be completely stripped, which is labor intensive and time consuming. New installations also force the removal of your existing counter top. This can add to the cost of the project as counters are not typically removed and reinstalled. The procedures involved in the majority of new cabinet installs will require you to replace your counter tops all together which adds to the cost.
Getting new cabinets can also be a seriously invasive process. Demolition and removal causes dust issues and getting those old cabinets out of your home can lead to damaged adjacent surfaces like walls, ceilings, and flooring.
Not to mention, installing new cabinets takes some time and there are more issues that are likely to arise, so you will have to brace yourself for a longer time with more down time.
That is why it is common for homeowners to be come frustrated with their cabinet installation experience. The time that you will be without an accessible and functional kitchen can lead to needless, project-related stress.
The good news is that there is a better way. For homeowners who are thinking about replacing their cabinets, but do not want to go through a complete replacement, cabinet refacing might be the answer you’re looking for.
Custom cabinetry solutions. Why refacing?
You may not even know it, but you are most likely a good candidate for cabinet refacing.
Cabinet refacing makes sense when you have:
- Cabinet boxes that are in decent shape
- Older cabinets as original boxes are high quality, better built than what’s on the market today.
- A counter top that does not necessarily need to be replaced
- Adjacent surfaces that should not be placed at risk to being damaged by nearby demolition
- Doors and drawer fronts that show signs of wear and age
- A kitchen or bath that needs a facelift, but you want to maximize your budget
- Layout limitations which require new cabinets to be installed where your current cabinets are
- Cabinets that need to be updated, added to, or modified.
If you have good boxes, you’re good to go. There is no need to replace the underlying structure if all it needs is a little bit of resurfacing. Similarly, you wouldn’t replace your whole car if all it needed was a paint job, right?
Cabinet refacing or recrafting also allows you to keep from having to hire additional specialty trade contractors. With a completely new installation you will have to pay for added plumbing and electrical as things are usually moved around a bit more. Additionally, there is no need to relocate appliances because you can use the existing appliance cutouts.
Simple, cost effective modifications can just be made, so you can upgrade to different sized appliances with little effort. One of the biggest benefits of our cabinet refacing service is that it offers an easy solution to giving your kitchen a fresh new look without the hassle of a complete remodel.

Maximize your updating budget
On average, homeowners can save between 20% – 40% when choosing cabinet refacing over replacement. You can still get your home those needed updates, but without breaking the bank.
Even though these cost savings are noteworthy, it is not the biggest benefit of cabinet refacing. Most professionals would agree that the biggest benefit to refacing is the ability to maximize your budget.
When it comes to woodwork and true craftsmanship, you will not get it from a cookie-cutter manufacturer as they do not offer a wide selection and they are pumping out product, producing at such high levels that it is hard to maintain quality control.
Unfortunately, they also opt to use inferior materials to drive costs down.
You can not get the quality your home deserves or the value of your investment from a big box store either (i.e. Home Depot, Lowes, Ikea, and local cabinet retailers).
Their products are typically shipped from overseas in an effort to get prices down even lower.
You really cannot get what you pay for when buying from a large retailer. Sadly, they do a great job of getting their prices down, but do not passing the cost savings onto the consumers. They simply markup their products and sell them to homeowners at the suggested retail value. This means you are getting an inferior product for a price you would expect to pay for a quality piece.
That is why we have teamed up with one of the largest suppliers in the United States to offer some of the highest quality, American-made cabinet components for refacing available in the area. This is how we are able to maximize your budget.

Then, we will show you how you can get the most bang for your buck. As a result, you will get the best high-end finish available at a price you can afford.

For only a small additional investment you can get a superior, high-end look comprised of beautiful wood products. That is why we always recommend solid wood or plywood veneers.
Top cabinet refacing materials include:
- Solid wood and high quality plywood veneers,
