"Step By Step"
We meet with you in person when most convenient. If its refinishing or refacing we will go over the many different options we have to offer. Whether you have an idea in mind or need help deciding what kind of style you would like to go with we are there every step of the way to assist you.

Once we have an idea of what type of finish you'd like to proceed with, we provide you with a sample done on your existing door, we than bring the sample back to your home to show you what the end result will be, this will eliminate any surprises at the end of the job.
If                     ,  all door and drawer fronts would than be picked up from your home and brought back to our shop location. Turnaround time is usually between two - three weeks (Kitchen still fully operable at this point), for the prep and finish to be applied to all doors and drawer fronts.

If                  , every door and every drawer front is measured out to its exact measurement. Once we have all the door and drawer information and you have selected a style, design, and wood species, we than place the order. Turn around time usually 3-4 weeks, at this time kitchen is still full operable and doors and drawers remain in home until the 4th week.
All Doors and Drawers are all individually hand stripped of all previously applied finished (if any) down to its bare wood. Once all finish has been removed each door and drawer is individually hand sanded with a series of fine grit abrasives. All doors and drawers are than sealed/primed and once again hand sanded between each coat to achieve the smoothest finish. After sealer/primer has been smoothed the color/tones are applied (the custom color of choice chosen).

Pick Up

We give you a call a week prior to confirm with you our appointment for inhome service on the existing framework. This will give you ample time to gather all of your belongings and remove them from out of the drawers and cabinets.

On the day of arrival, we than proceed to tape and mask everything except the visible panels and framework of your cabinets . All doorways are sealed and room is properly vented. All framework is than prepped in the same manner as the doors and drawers, and than masking materials are than removed.
