A: Cabinet refacing is a more economical alternative to replacing cabinets when you want to update the look of your kitchen but keep the layout of your cabinets relatively the same. Resurfacing is simply the process of getting rid of the existing doors and drawer fronts, covering the exposed surfaces of the existing cabinets with prefinished ¼” solid hardwood or Thermofoil laminate, then putting on new doors and drawer fronts to match. This covers up all blemishes and finish problems on the cabinets as well as the holes left by externally mounted hinges, and allows you to change the wood, color or door style. New doors are attached using heavy duty euro-style hidden hinges for a clean, updated look. New high quality decorative hardware and finish details such as crown moulding is then added to provide your kitchen with a brand new designer-showroom look. Many different styles of doors are available, and each are made to fit your specific openings precisely. Our designer will bring door and countertop samples to your home, discuss your vision for your new kitchen, and help you select the options and combinations that are right for your unique kitchen design. This typically takes 1-1½ hours, and includes measuring your kitchen and discussing pricing to fit your budget.
A. First of all there is a great difference in quality and costs of new cabinets, and if you consider all the risk and costs involved, both the obvious and the hidden, the typical contractor's "gut, tear and replace" job can cost you considerably more. The simple fact is that CabinetClad can save you up to half the cost of total remodeling or even more depending on the scope of the work, quality, and reliability of the contractor or supplier.
• Saves money! By re-using your existing kitchen cabinets you can save up to 50% or more over the cost of equivalent new cabinets.
• Better quality and looks! In many cases, existing cabinets are better quality than new ones. Also, new cabinets are bought individually and put up one at a time, leaving seams in-between cabinets. When cabinets are resurfaced, the process often provides a cleaner custom look than new cabinets can.
• Selection! We offer a wide selection of colors and styles in our wood doors. Each door is finished in a time proven, hand wiped technique for staining, then a cleartone waterproof finish is applied. We have the latest styles in Thermofoil doors. This is a one piece door that comes in a raised panel look or flat with radius corners. These doors have replaced painted doors, as they will not chip, scratch or fade over time. Refacing is not just limited to kitchens. We also reface bathroom vanities and wall units. All our work is warrantied for 5 years for material and labor.
First, we remove existing cabinet doors and drawers fronts. If there are any modifications in the cabinet layout like adding new cabinets it is done now. Then, the cabinets are sanded in place. Sides and faces are glued on the old surface, matching the color and material of the doors. Lastly, the new doors and drawer fronts are installed with the new hardware. We use the finest all metal European hidden hinges and euroglides for the drawers.
A: Installation time is usually 3 to 4 days from start to completion.
Before starting you will have to remove all items from your cabinets and drawers. You will still be able to use the kitchen every night if needed, unlike total remodeling, where you would be forced out of your kitchen for 4-6 weeks.
A: Yes, we offer countertops, tile, custom alterations, and additional cabinets.
Prior to refacing, we can add or subtract to the cabinets to alter the openings. We can also add new cabinets to change the layout to make the kitchen easier to use. One thing we do most often is to replace defective drawers in wood or laminate with euroglides. We use only the finest hardware for your job. We also can add pull-out shelves, garbage pull-out baskets, appliance garages, and much more.
A. Many times a home owner will purchase ready made cabinets, seemingly at a bargain and give little thought as to what it actually takes to gut an old kitchen and install new cabinets. For instance, who will replace or repair the old plaster or sheet rock, walls and ceilings, and flooring after the old cabinets are ripped from the walls? Maybe you had not planned on repainting or re-covering walls or replacing the floor in the first place. And who will pay for that extra expense not included in the "estimate?" What if the new ready made cabinets you ordered don't fit right or there is a factory flaw? Do you settle for second best and have the installer add filler pieces to "make them fit" or return them to the factory and do without a kitchen for six or seven more weeks. Keep in mind that many installers (sub-contractors) work on an hourly basis and many "problem jobs" can take additional weeks and sometimes months to complete. All of these delays and "extras" can add up, costing you more than you bargained for.
A. Good Question! First of all we don't have to "rip and tear" out anything. You don't have to be concerned with the cost of replacing sheet rock, flooring and ceiling, etc., because your existing framework stays in place! We remove your old doors and drawer fronts, resurface your existing framework with new ¼” hardwood laminate and install beautiful new custom CabinetClad doors and drawer fronts. You choose from dozens of colors and styles completely changing your existing kitchen into something new and exciting. Most kitchens are completed in only 4 to 7 days and you get beautiful craftsman-ship with no surprises in cost, quality or the completion schedule.
A. Seems like a silly question but many people don't realize an estimate is really just that, an estimate! It is a guess as to what the job would probably cost based on a preliminary discussion of what you want and what the guesser thinks will do the job. Most often neither you or the guesser will really be working with all the variables. The actual finished cost could be much higher, especially if work proceeds without a fully detailed specification. At CabinetClad we never guess. Instead we carefully measure and calculate exactly what your finished kitchen will cost, what the start date will be and when your new kitchen will be completed. The finished kitchen price will never exceed the original quote providing you don't add to that existing order. So you sec, it really is risk free!
A. Yes! With your new CabinetClad kitchen you will receive a full written lifetime warranty that is for the life of your kitchen.

A: The discount stores, in order to maintain a profit, have to cut corners someplace. They will not install your cabinets, generally. If they do, there is an additional cost. Our estimates include delivery and installation. Their cabinets are mostly made out of 'particle board', which isn't as strong as the solid wood that we use. We also use only top quality hardware that is designed to last through daily use.
