FAQ

Cabinet painting is the process of applying paint to kitchen cabinets. Paint over time softens, and can crack or peel. Cabinet refinishing is the process of sanding down, and restoring wood to its best surface. Once sanded, a sealer will be applied to seal the grain, which allows the lacquer to adhere to the cabinets. The lacquer is formulated to hold moisture and is best used in places such as kitchens and bathrooms.

We use a pre-catalyzed lacquer that provides a long-term flexible finish, that allows the wood to breath and move overtime as the wood expands and contracts. Unlike lacquer, paint is a thicker product that provides less flexibility, that overtime can crack with frequent movement.

The finish style, the number of doors, the amount of time required to sand, refinish or prepare the wood. Solid color finishes like white, require a different amounts of time then more intricate projects such as Antiquing, Glazing, Staining.
