Why should I reface my kitchen cabinets instead of replacing them?

If you like the current layout of your kitchen or just prefer to avoid the cost and inconvenience of remodeling, cabinet refacing offers the perfect solution. You also keep the existing cabinet frames intact and get back to cooking in your own kitchen a lot sooner by refacing cabinets rather than replacing them.  Our comment: The choice is yours, sometimes it is better to commit to a complete remodel, we would evaluate your kitchen, give you a price for both and decide as a team. The time frame difference between Custom Cabinets and Cabinet refacing can be several weeks. In some circumstances cabinet refacing is not an option, (Old rotten wood, extremely outdated cabinets, previously refinished and in bad condition).

How long does kitchen cabinet refacing take?

Our professional installers can complete most kitchen cabinet refacing projects in just 5-7 business days from the time installation begins, leaving you with a kitchen that will provide lasting enjoyment.

Our comment: If all goes well and permitting that we have full access to your kitchen during work hours one week is realistic. The alternative of a full kitchen remodel would add about 4-6 weeks to the finish line.

Is your kitchen a good candidate for cabinet refacing?
