How do I know if Solid Wood Refacing is right for me?
Do you like the general layout of your kitchen? Do you like to use only the finest quality materials? Do you want to avoid the expense, time and mess involved in tearing out and starting over? Then our Solid Wood Refacing system is perfect for you!
I found new cabinets at a Big Box store that cost about the same as refacing, so, why shouldn't I just buy new ones?
This is one of our most-asked questions. Do you know the saying, "They just don't build it like they used to?" Well, that is true of your cabinets too. The typical cabinet at a Big Box store is made of pressed wood or particle board. What you have in your home is probably better quality and better built than what is being offered new in a Big Box store. So, you would be tearing out your sturdy, well-built cabinets and replacing them with lesser materials. Also, we use only solid hardwood as part of our cabinet refacing, so the refacing material is generally better than that used to build the new discount cabinets. What all of this means: from the standpoint of quality, to compare those new cabinets with solid wood refacing is like comparing apples to oranges. Also, keep in mind that the overall disruption to your home will be far greater if you choose to tear out your entire kitchen.
Compare Solid Wood Refacing to quality, real-wood new cabinets, and you see a savings of 30%-60%.
How long until my kitchen project is completed?
Most kitchen cabinet refacing projects are completed in just one week, as opposed to weeks or months with a complete remodel.
Will there be a lot of dust or mess during that week?
Some sanding, cutting and spraying will need to be done in your kitchen. You will see plastic sheeting across doors and passageways to keep the mess inside the kitchen area. We take care to mask off floors, countertops, appliances, etc. We pride ourselves on cleaning up afterward.
Will I be able to use my kitchen during installation week?
Because of masking, taping, and the various stages of the project, your kitchen will be virtually unusable during installation week. However, we will leave your refrigerator plugged in during the process. Many people move it into the dining room to maintain access.
Do you offer accessories, or just cabinets?
As your experts on Seattle cabinets we offer many options. With extras like sliding shelves, we can make your kitchen look and function just the way you want.
Can I add new cabinets to my kitchen?
Yes, and because your new cabinets are built with the same materials that we use to reface your existing cabinets, everything matches perfectly. There will be no visible difference between new and existing.
