What Is Cabinet Refacing?
Cabinet Refacing is replacement of existing doors and drawer faces while still keeping your existing cabinets boxes.
We prep the work area, sand, prime and spray a top coat of selected color to the cabinet box to match the new doors.
Refacing also allows you to swap out cabinets for design purposes or for damage.
No matter the goal, we’re able to complete the job seamlessly.
How We Reface Cabinets
The process of cabinet refacing is actually pretty simple in comparison to other types of remodeling projects.
The whole process can be completed in much shorter time-frame than a typical full remodel.
Step 1: Remove doors and drawers
The first step is to remove existing doors and drawers to get your kitchen prepared for refacing.
For most projects, Norsemen leaves the drawer boxes as they are. This is just another way we save you money during the remodel process.
Step 2: Prepping the Area
We prep the work area by applying floor and countertop protection. Then, we set up a plastic wall around the perimeter of the work area to keep dust and paint particles within the work space as best as possible.
We then tape off and paper the openings of the cabinets, as well as the walls on the sides of the cabinets.
Step 3: Sand Cabinets and Clean Cabinets
Once the cabinets are prepped, we sand all cabinet face frames, side panels and trim. Once everything is sanded we vacuum and clean the areas sanded.
Step 4: Spray Base & Top Coat
Once everything is sanded, vacuumed and cleaned we then spray on base coat and waterborne top coat.
We use a HVLP system, which is a high volume, low pressure spray system. This means the smoothest finish as possible; no brush strokes!
Step 5: Install New Doors
The last step is to install new doors and drawers to perfectly match your freshly refaced cabinets.
New hardware and hinges complete your kitchen transformation!
If you’d like, you can also add accessories such as crown molding, glass panels, lighting, or storage accessories.
Step 6: Final Clean
Final clean up! We have a professional cleaning crew to do a deep clean of the work area; so fresh, so clean!
