?Hire a dedicated Kitchen Cabinet Refinisher not a house painter.
Your kitchen cabinets are one of the most expensive furnishing in your home.
When choosing a professional to paint your kitchen cabinets it’s a mistake to think it’s a job that any painter can do. Many house painters will simply spray your doors in your garage or basement with overspray possibly getting on other things in those areas. Furthermore, those areas are not climate controlled. If it’s cold or too humid the paint may freeze or not cure properly. You will then have problems down the road with your painted cabinets possibly peeling! Dust & debris in a garage or basement is also not conducive to a smooth, clean factory finish that you desire on your kitchen cabinets.
Instead, hire a kitchen cabinet refinishing company that is dedicated to painting kitchen cabinetry every week! Make sure they have a climate controlled shop with a drying room that will allow for the paint to dry properly, void of dust & debris.
Craig W. Morgan Enterprises has the proper climate controlled systems in place to provide professionally finished kitchen cabinets. We then wrap each finished door & drawer in a protective blanket for delivery back to your home!
?Compare our refinishing costs to refacing costs.
A typical refacing job starts at $16,000. & up! They will usually replace your doors & drawer fronts. However, your face frames will be covered with a thin veneer, which has been problematic for many homeowners. The veneer does not do well by heat, for example cabinets by your oven or toaster oven. In time the veneer will bubble due to the heat.
A typical painted finish averages @ $2,500.00 & up. This consists of sanding your existing doors & drawer faces along with the exterior of the cabinet boxes or face frames. We then wash everything with TSP to remove grease & debris. A high quality oil based primer is applied. A high quality satin finish paint is then sprayed to both sides of the doors & drawer fronts.
In addition, a typical kitchen makeover with door & drawer replacements made from MDF may average @$3,000.00! Replacement doors made of wood are more costly. However, a paint grade maple is not much more than the MDF and can be manufactured with a wider variety of style doors.
So, what will you do with the estimated $10,000.00 we can save you on your kitchen makeover?
?The quality of service.
What is the company's service reputation?
Have you looked at online third party client reviews, not just reviews on the company website?
Are they dedicated to satisfied customers?
Do they provide a detailed contract with a start date?
Do you know how long they will be in your kitchen?
More importantly “who” will be working in your kitchen?
Is it a subcontractor, or a dedicated employee who cares about your kitchen makeover & your home?
Do you need to empty out all the cabinets?
Do they communicate well?
Ask all of these questions before you hire! It will make or break your kitchen makeover experience.
?Do you get a warranty?
The company you work with should provide a warranty. It is in your best interest to pick a company that has been around for several years because if you need assistance they are more likely to be there in the future to honor the warranty and provide service support.
