What is Cabinet Refacing Exactly?
A great perk of cabinet refacing is that the current frame of your cabinet box is left and repurposed. This method does not require new boxes as a full cabinet remodel would. The full process involves replacing all old cabinet doors and drawer fronts, hinges, mouldings and covering the exterior boxes with a ¼ inch wood skin. While this process occurs, existing spaces in your home’s cabinet box can be altered for your new look. Cabinet refacing is the ideal choice if you are already happy with the layout of your kitchen and will dramatically cut down on cost.
Should I just get all new cabinets?
You may actually spend up to 50% more on full cabinet replacement when compared to a more simple refacing project. Think about it, the costs of rewiring electrical connections, replacing flooring, painting, countertops, and other possibly unforeseen obstacles can make a project become expensive quickly.
If you are happy with preserving the existing layout and makeup of your kitchen, cabinet refacing is the better option. This easy-to-implement method helps you enjoy your dream kitchen, master bath, mantle, or other custom cabinet project.

How will the cabinet refacing process work?
When you have gone over your vision with our design consultants, we will give you assistance in choosing your new style of door, preferred wood species and color too. Our skilled staff will make measurements to ensure your custom tailored materials will fit perfectly.

What materials are used for the cabinet doors?
Our craftsmen only use solid wood for all of our cabinet doors projects. They come in a wide variety of wood types, colors and cabinet faces so you can find the right fit for your home.
How many colors can I choose from?
We provide over 35 colors for you to select from with our proprietary finish system plus other finishes as well. We never use paints to finish the cabinet doors since it will not hold up for the long term.
How are the new sides applied?
Our team will produce ¼ inch wood facing material for the cabinet boxes that match the doors in style and color. We utilize pin nails and a wood glue for all application of the materials, that way your finished look is not only visually stunning, but also built to durably last for a long time ahead.
Do you ever use veneers on the exterior of the cabinets?
Our seasoned staff does not place veneers on cabinet exteriors because veneers will usually bubble and chip over enough time. We only reface cabinet boxes with the ¼ inch wood facing material.
What is a corbel exactly?
A corbel is essentially a decorative wall bracket. A corbel is made to reliably support a countertop overhang or shelf, while also acting as a beautiful visual element.
