Cabinet Refacing vs. Cabinet Replacement
If you’ve recently decided to get La Mesa kitchen cabinets, you may be under the impression that your only option is to purchase brand new cabinets for your home. The issue is that new cabinets can be extremely expensive. The good news is that there’s a different option that’s not only more affordable, but also quicker and less messy: cabinet refacing.
Take a look at a few of the benefits you can look forward to with La Mesa cabinet refacing services*96:
- More affordable than cabinet replacement
- Shorter installation time
- Brand new, customizable look for old cabinets
- Cuts down on waste
What Is Cabinet Refacing?
When we reface your La Mesa kitchen cabinets, our goal is to improve the cabinet’s appearance by stripping away the old surface and replacing it with a stunning new veneer. First, our professionals will thoroughly assess the cabinets and discuss your project ideas with you. Once we have a clear idea of what you want the final product to look like, we’ll get to work!
Refacing cabinets is less invasive than cabinet replacement because we don’t tear out the body of the cabinet. If the cabinet box is chipped, scratched, or damaged, we’ll sand it down so it’s no longer noticeable. Next, we’ll remove the doors and drawer faces and stain the cabinet boxes. Once the new veneer is in place, we’ll add new hardware like hinges, handles, or knobs. The final touch is re-affixing the drawers and cabinet faces to the body of the cabinets.
Can I Reface My Cabinets?
Most cabinets are good candidates for refacing, but there are some cases where replacement is the only option. Old cabinets are often built sturdier than newer construction that favors particle board or wood composites, but not all old cabinets can be refaced.
If your cabinets meet a couple of basic requirements, they’re good candidates for refacing:
- Cabinet box in good condition and structurally sound
- Plywood or MDF construction
- No extensive water damage or warping
- Internal hardware like drawer tracks in good shape
Why Choose Cabinet Refacing?
Cabinet refacing is the perfect option for people looking to maximize what they can get out of their remodeling budget. If you want to keep costs down or if your cabinet project is part of a larger scale remodeling project within your home, then refacing is the best option for stretching your budget. Cabinet refacing will also leave you with some extra funds for more elaborate upgrades if those are in your plan. Features like etched glass doors, customized trim, or backlighting are all popular features that add to the total cost.
If you want to finish your cabinets on a short timeline, then cabinet refacing is a great option. Most projects can be completed in just a couple of days, although some can be finished in just one day. Usually, the project timeline depends on how many cabinets you need refaced and the condition the cabinets are in. We offer options with new custom cabinets as well.
