Q. What is cabinet refacing?
A. Kitchen or bathroom cabinet refacing is the process of replacing doors and drawer fronts, while veneering the cabinet boxes. Refacing cabinets cost less than replacing your kitchen with new cabinets, yet when completed the cabinets look new.
Q. How long does cabinet refacing take?
A. Typically 2-4 days. The schedule of work would look something like this. Day One: Remove hardware, doors, and drawer fronts. Begin veneering. Pick up and clean at the end of the day. Day Two: Continue veneering. Pick up and clean at the end of the day. Day Three: Finish veneering. Install new doors and drawer fronts. Install hardware, make final adjustments and a final pickup and cleaning.
Q. Can really old cabinets be refaced?
A. Yes. As long as the boxes are structurally sound, they can be refaced. Older boxes tend to be stronger and strudier than newer boxes, and thus are great candidates for refacing.
