How to Repaint Kitchen Cabinets With Refabulated
Before We Arrive
Before we arrive we ask that you remove all hardware from your doors and drawers (if possible) and give your doors/drawers a wipe down with a damp cloth to remove any food particles and grease.
Excessive cleaning required on our part will result in a surcharge. We also ask that you sweep your kitchen floor, focusing particularly behind the fridge and stove as well as the toe kicks. (if you have pets, you will know fur loves to collect under there)
When We Arrive
The in-home painting takes approximately 2-3 days depending on the size of the kitchen and the amount of detail. The rule of thumb is that if we can easily remove an item and take it with us to spray in our shop, we do.
This can include valances, crown molding, shelving, end panels etc. If we feel an item cannot be easily re-installed it will be painted in place. This is left to our discretion unless the homeowner agrees to uninstall and reinstall themselves.
All door and drawer fronts are labeled, numbered and removed. There is no need to take all items out of your cabinets since we are painting just the fronts, we can work around anything that is in our way.
While in your Home
Our steps are to clean, lightly sand, one-two coats of primer and as many coats of paint that are required to provide a smooth painted finished that covers well. We tape all surfaces and floors we cover appliances and countertops.
Your doors and drawer fronts are the most important to us, so we spend lots of time cleaning and sanding, we can fill and redrill for new hardware.
We spray 2 coats of primer, sanding between coats, 2 coats of paint on the back side, and 3 coats on the front. We use HVLP spraying equipment. We use Benjamin Moore ADVANCE
When the doors are completed we come with your doors wrapped up and we rehang them. We provide you with bumpers and reinstall your hardware. We also take a good look and provide any touch ups as needed.
We explain the aftercare process in detail, the paint takes about 30 days to cure, the paint will come off if the doors are banging up against each other and it is important to be careful when reaching for a handle, if you catch your nail on the paint that could result in a chip in the paint. If there is a major problem with your doors, we will do whatever we have to fix the issue.
