Basics

Refacing is an economical, fast, minimally invasive and lasting alternative to a remodel. New doors and drawer fronts replace the old; vertical exterior surfaces are covered in new materials, and new soft-close hinges create smooth functioning.

While refacing is significantly less expensive than a full kitchen renovation, the pricing can vary widely based on a number of factors such as:

  1. Number of doors
  2. Size of the doors
  3. Material of the doors
  4. Desired stain or painted finish
  5. The desired profile and finish of the doors (flat panel or raised panel, paint or stain)
  6. The area of cabinets on which the new veneer is to be installed

Our Process

In most instances, it is not necessary to remove items from your cabinets. We’ll review this with you ahead of time so if you have goods you want to protect, you’ll have ample time.

Once we take the final measurements, it usually takes 6-8 weeks to get your doors manufactured and installed.

Depending on the size and complexity and installation of the job, it generally takes 1-3 days to complete your kitchen project

Usually, we remove old doors and drawer fronts and put new ones on the next day. We do most of the work at our workshop so there’s virtually no mess for you.

Depending on the size and complexity and installation of the job, it generally takes 1-3 days to complete your kitchen project.

Quality

  • 1 year (industry standard) - If you experience an issue after the year, we’d still love to hear from you.
  • The warranty covers apparent defects in material and or installation - does not cover aging or water damage

Think of cabinet refacing as cabinet recycling. Refacing utilizes your existing cabinets – which means using fewer trees, labor and machine hours. It’s an efficient and affordable alternative that will have you feeling great about your kitchen transformation as well as your lessened impact on the environment. And we use Water-based stains to minimize chemicals in your home.

Misc.

Sometimes a client wants to make an adjustment to the kitchen layout or needs a different sized cabinet to accommodate a new sized appliance (such as a new, taller refrigerator). We can seamlessly integrate new cabinets into your kitchen. If you would like to make other kitchen adjustments like adding a backsplash or an island, let us know.

  1. Our veteran carpenters are skilled in the refacing process and custom cabinetry. They can add cabinetry to layouts or modify existing cabinet boxes. (Make room for an oven hood, bigger refrigerator)
  2. With the typical re-facing process, the boxes are left as-is. If they need repairs, we have the capacity to handle that.

No. The process of painting cabinets requires hours of preparation, moving nearly everything out of your kitchen, and painting and drying time. It can cost significantly more than refacing.

Ok, I’m ready to get started. What are the next steps?

We had been thinking of remodeling our kitchen for some time, but the sticker shock overwhelmed our budget. Sure wish we would have known about cabinet refacing years ago. CABINET MAGIC has given us the kitchen we had envisioned; and the price was such that it afforded us the opportunity to update two bathrooms. John McCaleb has a solid reputation in the remodeling industry and demonstrated that he knew what he was doing from the very first appointment. We are happy with the service, the product, the price and most of all our new kitchen and baths!
