With more than 30 years of combined experience among our team members, we’re experts at restoring cabinets to their former glory. Read on to get more insights about our cabinet refinishing services.

What is Cabinet Refinishing?

Cabinet refinishing is the process of sanding, cleaning, and resurfacing cabinets to make them look better. It doesn’t involve replacement parts or rebuilding, but it can improve the appearance of your kitchen.

Our Cabinet Refinishing Process

Our cabinet refinishing process consists of the following;

Removing Doors, Drawers, and Hardware

The first step in cabinet refinishing is removing all doors, drawers, and hardware for full access to the cabinets.

Repairing any Dents or Scratches on Cabinets

If there are any dents or scratches on the cabinets, our refinishing team will use wood putty to fill them in.


Our team members will sand the cabinets using a top-quality sander that gets into every nook and cranny. This ensures that they are entirely smooth to eliminate any previous coats of paint.

Washing all Cabinets with TSP

The next step is washing the cabinets using trisodium phosphate (TSP), which removes all current residues and makes paint adhere better.


Caulking ensures that paint will not chip or scratch when doors are touched, or the cabinets are moved. We use top-quality caulk in matching colors to avoid undesirable contrasting patches appearing on the cabinets after refinishing.

Taping off areas where caulk has been applied

We’ll take care to tape off areas where caulk has been applied, as well as any other areas that need protection from the refinishing spray.

Resurfacing Cabinets with a Primer

Next, we apply a high-quality primer before applying a top-quality paint of your color choice. As always, we use the best quality paint available on the market.

Applying a High-Quality Topcoat

Finally, we apply a clear finish layer that helps protect the painted cabinets from damage due to heat and moisture. This not only makes your cabinets look better but also prevents further deterioration down the road.

Cleaning Up

The final step is to clean up the area after finishing our work. We’ll also remove all tape used for taping off areas, as well as any other excess materials that are left behind.

Re-Coating Cabinets when necessary

Since wood absorbs moisture over time, re-coating could be necessary to apply a second layer of paint. We have a standard rate for this, and it is usually required once every 3 years.

How does Cabinet Refinishing Improve my Kitchen?

  • It saves a lot of money compared to a complete replacement

Cabinet refinishing costs much less than cabinet replacement, and it can restore cabinets to an as-good-as-new condition. It also helps make your kitchen look brighter and fresh, which can open up spaces in your house.

  • It is environmentally friendly

Replacing cabinets leads to a massive waste of natural resources. Cabinet refinishing, by contrast, allows you to reduce the amount of wood that goes to landfills.

  • Delivers a sizeable visual improvement

In most cases, cabinets can immediately make your kitchen look much better after refinishing. They also have a fresh, new appearance that makes the entire house look better.

  • Improves the value of your home

Kitchens and bathrooms are two rooms that homeowners focus on improving when upgrading their homes. Cabinet refinishing can undoubtedly make these areas look better, but it also significantly affects how much you can sell your home.

What should I look for when hiring a commercial painting contractor?

Three things to look for when hiring a commercial painting contractor. 

1) Commercial painting service should be able to provide you with a list of references and testimonials before hiring them for the job. Commercial painting services can’t afford to do shoddy work so if they don’t have any recommendations on their website, then keep looking.

2) Commercial painting service will most likely ask you for a deposit, which is usually a third of the agreed amount. Commercial painting services are highly unlikely to disappear if they’ve already asked for money up front.

3) Commercial painting service has insurance in case something were to happen whilst they’re working on your premises. Commercial painting services don’t want to get sued when their careless mistakes cause damage to your property.

What kind of commercial paint do you use?

We use the only professional quality paints from Sherwin Williams, Kelly Moore, Benjamin Moore and Dunn Edwards, unless the customer requests a different brand.

How long will my commercial exterior painting job last?

How often should a commercial building be painted?

Commercial buildings need to be painted from time to time in order to maintain their appearance and curb appeal. Commercial building owners should consider the following when planning for a commercial painting project:

Painting commercial structures is not only important for aesthetics, but it serves an important purpose of protecting exterior surfaces. Commercial paint provides protection against harmful UV rays, chemical oxidation, and weathering, which can cause paint to peel. Commercial buildings that are unpainted may require more frequent repainting as the lack of paint will allow the elements to damage surfaces at a much faster rate.

Why should I paint my commercial space?

A commercial business space is often the first thing that people notice about your business. Commercial buildings are exposed to wear and tear because they are open daily, this could affect the type of paint used as well as its color. Commercial painting also allows you to improve the overall appearance of your shop, making it more inviting to customers. Commercial painting is important for any business because it helps in attracting the preferred clientele. Commercial painting improves the value of your property and can help in increasing rent rates, if you are leasing a commercial space this is something that could be very beneficial, especially if you are in a competitive market.

What else should I know about commercial painting?

You deserve a company that is willing to work with your company to the best of their ability. Get a consultation/estimation and feel them out. Make sure they are communicative and on the same page as you so that you don’t end up feeling unsatisfied with the job. If you aren’t confident with the company, don’t hire them because your commercial property should come first to them and you. Also don’t just go with the lowest bid because that is likely an indication that something is not being done right. Do your research and make sure you’re hiring a reputable company that is going to give you a quality, well-timed and executed commercial paint job. 

How do I know when it is time to repaint my home?

As a homeowner, it is important to monitor your home painting over time. When you notice that the paint is beginning to weather and fade badly–especially if there are bare spots resulting from peeling or cracking of the surface–it may be time for another coat. If you live in an area where winters are harsh, this will happen more quickly than it would for someone who lives in a temperate climate.

Residential painting professionals recommend that you keep an eye on your exterior paint during your annual inspection. If it is beginning to crack or peel, this is the best time to repaint it. Most professional painters recommend that you repaint every two years; however, if outdoor humidity or precipitation is an issue for your home, you may want to repaint more often.

What happens if my exterior paint of my residential property is peeling and cracking?

There are a number of reasons for this to happen, and most of them come down to the fact that either the siding material itself isn’t able to properly expand and contract with weather changes (if it’s wood, vinyl, aluminum, etc.), there is a build-up of dirt and/or algae on the surface (if it’s siding), or that the paint used has an incompatibility with the rest of its components.

Once we know why the paint is peeling or cracking, then we can look at what our options are. We will remove the peeling paint by pressure washing it off (if it’s wood or vinyl), and/or scraping it off (if it’s aluminum).

Should I do the prep work myself before the painter comes to my home?

No it is not necessary, When your painter estimates your home, he will factor all of the painting prep work needed . Unless you have experience in the field, it is best left to the professional painter you have hired. The prep work does change your bid somewhat , but the cost you save yourself, from having to repair or replace a second time, is well worth it.

When is it too cold to paint my residential exterior?

It is not recommended to paint below 40-45 degrees. There are special paints available for colder weather painting if painting must be done in colder temperatures. You should consult a professional painter to evaluate your home’s  painted exterior.

How many coats of paint do I need when painting my home?

Usually one coat of paint is sufficient. Applying several coats of paint  is not necessary, as paint layers do build up and over applying can cause cracking and peeling. Color changing is usually why you would need 2 coats of paint, changing to a light or darker color needs more coats for coverage only. 

Do I need to be home for a painting estimate?

If you would like, you can be present when the painting company comes to take an estimate. This will give you time to ask questions, and get to know the estimator. However, it is not required that you are home for this process. In fact, if your work or family schedules make it difficult or impossible for you to be home, most painting companies will come back at your convenience.

What Happens During an Estimate?

A professional estimator will determine the scope of work involved, which will include the size of the project, type of paint needed and number of coats. The estimator will convey this information to you to ensure you both have the same expectations before work begins.

What else should I know about Residential painting?

You deserve a company that is willing to work with your company to the best of their ability. Get a consultation/estimation and feel them out. Make sure they are communicative and on the same page as you so that you don’t end up feeling unsatisfied with the job. If you aren’t confident with the company, don’t hire them because your residential property should come first to them and you. Also don’t just go with the lowest bid because that is likely an indication that something is not being done right. Do your research and make sure you’re hiring a reputable company that is going to give you a quality, well-timed and executed residential paint job.

What can I do to prepare for my home painting project before my painter arrives?

Remove any family treasurers or breakable items, wall hangings, TV sets etc. entirely from the room. Pet owners should sweep or vacuum up loose pet hair and wipe away pet stains (with water only on a damp rag) from the baseboards and carpet.
