Cabinet Refacing

Update your kitchen without the disruption and expense of tearing it all out.

We have a talented designer for you to work with if you are unsure of your materials, colors, and choices of design details. We can take on projects from simply refacing exactly what you have, to making subtle or substantial changes with new custom built cabinets.

What our customers are saying

Beautiful job which saved at least 40% of what it would have cost to replace all the cabinets. My wife really likes the custom pantry and everyone who sees it is impressed.

Our new Kitchen is perfect – We didn’t want to waste money tearing out perfectly good cabinets. Reface & Custom Cabinets repurposed many of the lower cabinets, and built a new oven cabinet for us. Refacing was a great was to go with our project

Frequent Questions

Will you reface my bathroom vanity?

We can always add bathroom vanity refacing onto a new kitchen refacing project, as additional work. If you are looking to do a vanity by itself, we are not set up for that. It's not that we don't want to help people with their cabinet needs. The reasons include, there are minimum costs to get someone out to measure and order materials, the cost of project management, and the cost of bringing out a crew to do the refacing work, plus insurance and other overheads. These costs just don't scale down enough for us to take on very small jobs. A realistic minimum size refacing project is about $5000 which is out of proportion to what is is worth to reface a typical vanity.

Can you re-use my existing cabinet drawers?

Usually the existing drawers can be used and we just put new fronts on them. The best case scenario for the customer who doesn't want the expense of new drawers, is if the existing drawer fronts are screwed on and not stapled and glued on. If the fronts are not able to be removed, new drawers are required. And if the old drawers are in bad shape or the glides are worn out, it is generally better to replace the drawers and glides. If you need new drawers, they will be made of clear coated Baltic birch, with Dovetail corners, and mounted on Blum soft close full extension under-mount glides. Maple is an extra cost option instead of Baltic birch.

What species of wood does your company use for refacing?

For solid color jobs such as white or off white finishes, we use paint grade Maple. For stained finishes, we most commonly work with maple, but we can work in any hardwood species that is commercially available in the furniture industry. A majority of our projects are done in maple because it is beautiful, durable, and can be stained to match any desired look. 

Of the stained wood projects which are not Maple, Cherry is by far and away the next most popular. Cherry takes stain very evenly and typically has a beautiful and attractive grain which will provide gorgeous looking cabinets.

Refacing - Refinishing - Resurfacing What's the difference?

Refacing means the old doors, drawer fronts, and cabinet trim pieces are removed and a new surface material is bonded onto your existing cabinet boxes. The old doors, and drawer fronts are discarded and replaced with new ones. All materials are prefinished offsite in your choice of finish, with a 10 year limited warranty. Refacing is the least disruptive method as compared to refinishing or replacing your cabinets. Our company, Reface Cabinets and Custom Cabinets, specializes in using 1/4" thick solid wood for refacing. We have other products available but the thick solid wood refacing is the premier way to go.

Refinishing involves Painting or Re-Staining your cabinets, re-using your existing doors and drawer fronts. This can be an economical alternative to refacing, but strong solvent odors and dust issues are part of on-site spray finishing. Oak cabinets are problematic because of the grain of the wood. If you are looking to get your cabinets painted or stained a different color and are not willing to replace your doors, you need to call someone else. We quit doing on site painting work many years ago.

Resurfacing is a non specific term in this sense, because it could mean either Refacing or Refinishing. Generally when people call to inquire about resurfacing, they really want to repaint their cabinets.

Will you just come paint (or stain) my current cabinets?

If you are just looking for a color change, without replacing your doors and drawer fronts, we cannot help you. Our specialty is cabinet refacing, and we do not do onsite painting or onsite stain finishing. All materials we bring in for your project will be finished off site by our paint shop in the finish of your choice, before we come back to do your work.
