Less Hassle, Less Headache, More Happiness
Many homeowners underestimate the time, money and stress involved in a total kitchen or bathroom renovation. An average kitchen can take between 4-8 weeks, a bathroom 4-6. During that time your room is unusable, contractors are coming and going, and the costs keep adding up. When replacing cabinets there are almost always added costs not originally factored in that reveal themselves during demo and installation. New cabinets necesitate new countertops, while these are not required when revamping existing cabinetry. In addition, hidden costs such as take-out meals can add up and bust the budget. Our quick and easy refinishing or refacing options will keep your time without a kitchen or bath to a few days and save you from weeks of chaos in your home.
A Green Option: Don't Trash, Transform!
If you are happy with the current layout of your cabinetry, but not with its current look, In-Home Refinishing or Refacing could be the answer. Our environmentally friendly process allows you to reuse and restyle your current cabinetry with a brand new finish. This keeps your cabinet boxes, many of which are made from formaldehyde-filled materials, out of the landfill where the chemicals will leach out over time. In addition, reusing current materials saves more than just your budget. It saves on all resources such as trees, electricity, and fossil fuels that go into making new cabinetry.
