Raleigh Cabinet Refacing
The Refacing Process Explained
Below is the experience you can expect from a reface.
Consultation:Your new kitchen begins with a free consultation with a member of our experienced sales staff. This stage of the process combines a visit to our showroom and an in-home visit. The in-home visit enables our kitchen consultants to study your kitchen layout and being to strategize with you on potential modifications or additions to maximize use of your kitchen space. A showroom appointment allows you to see our extensive product options and start getting a better feel for what styles & finishes match your taste & budget. Once you arrive at a final decision, the contract is signed and your customized doors, drawer fronts, and veneers are immediately ordered from the manufacturer. Additionally, an installation date – that best suits your schedule – is agreed upon for a block of 2-4 days in 3-5 weeks from the placed order. It is important to note that our ultimate goal is consumer satisfaction, since most of our business comes from past customers. Therefore, we will strive to find a solution that perfectly matches your personal needs; even if that means referring a company that is better suited to handle your particular project.
Installation:Our skilled carpenters will then arrive at your house and begin the demolition stage of your cabinet reface. Fortunately, demolition for a refacing is minimal compared to a full tear-out and replacement. Our team simply removes your doors and drawer fronts and sands down your existing cabinet boxes to create a smooth surface capable of accepting adhesive. Plastic is hung throughout your kitchen to quarantine dust and debris from the rest of your house. This makes the process as clean as possible. Cabinet modifications, additions, or removal – depending on what was decided during the consultation phase – are also performed at this time.
Once your kitchen’s layout and specifications align with our design, the fun begins! We start by applying veneers to the bottom, sides, toe kicks, and then faces of your cabinets. For wood cabinets, strips of veneer are applied to the faces to mimic the look of traditional face frames. With the cabinet boxes finished, we then hang doors and attach drawer fronts to your drawer boxes. Our doors come with a blum, European style, hinge and soft close system. The technology is quite fascinating. Finally, finishing touches are made and new hardware is drilled and installed.
