The Process

Our Process of Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets

With our non-intrusive kitchen cabinet refinishing method, kitchens remain clean and usable throughout the week. We only spend two to three days in the home, and the rest of the process is completed off site in our shop. This allows home owners and tenants to enjoy normal life while their kitchens undergo a vast transformation.

Stages of Our Process

The total cabinet resurfacing process takes only three to five business days.

At the shop, the cabinet doors and drawers go through several stages:

ON-SITE: During the process, we spend two to three days in your kitchen coating the cabinet frames.  We begin by removing the existing cabinet doors and drawers from the cabinet frames and taping off the entire kitchen.

After taping off the entire kitchen, we wash, hand-sand, prime, repair cracks and blemishes, caulk, then spray the finish onto all exterior surfaces of the cabinet frames.

OFF-SITE: At the shop, the doors and drawer fronts go through the same stages of preparation to ensure a durable, furniture-grade finish.  All of the pieces then receive three coats of our commercial-grade acrylic coatings, applied in our contaminant-free spray booth.

Once the cabinet frames are completed, we reinstall the cabinet doors and drawer fronts, as well as any new knobs/handles, to complete the process.

We maintain the highest respect for your home and will exercise great caution while working inside it. We tape off and cover your floors, walls, cabinet interiors, counters and sink, and the surrounding furniture.  And all coatings are water-based and low-VOC.

We also offer new cabinet doors and drawers for our clients who would like to change door styles and/or eliminate grain entirely.  This option combines the advantages of cabinet resurfacing with the benefits of cabinet refacing, at a fraction of the cost.  Our approach to refacing is durable, convenient, cost-effective, and produces the appearance of brand new cabinets.”

An Exceptional Alternative to Refacing Kitchen Cabinets

Whether you are a home owner, realtor, or interior designer, our unique approach to transforming cabinetry is an outstanding resource for improving the visual appeal and worth of a home. Our finishes truly are second to none in their beautiful appearance, smooth texture, and extraordinary durability. The process is also the least intrusive method of modernizing cabinetry, which translates to an immense savings of time, energy, and expense.

Consider the affordable option of resurfacing kitchen cabinets rather than the intrusive process of replacing or refacing kitchen cabinets. See the kitchen of your dreams in the one you already have through the services provided by Summit Cabinet Coatings of Northern Colorado!
