What is Refacing?

Refacing is a kitchen remodeling process where the old cabinet doors and drawer fronts are replaced with the desired cabinet door substitutes. The cabinet face frames are also refaced at this time with wood veneers or other finishing methods to match the newly refaced doors and drawer fronts.

Our Pittsburgh Cabinet Refacing Process:

Step #1 – Remove And Haul Away Old Cabinet Components

old kitchen cabinet pieces removed and hauled away
If there is anything that you decide you do not want on your kitchen or bathroom cabinets, we remove and get rid of to make room for the new components. This can include the following:

  • Removal of existing cabinet doors
  • Removal of existing drawer fronts, drawer boxes and glides as well if needed
  • Removal of all trim, valances, toe-kicks, etc
  • Removal of existing countertops unless instructed otherwise.

Step #2 – Sanding The Cabinet Face Frames

Since we have determined your cabinets have good bones and are not in need of a full replacement, we sand the frames, sides, and exposed surfaces back to a clean surface as required, to prep the surfaces for the best outcome in the cabinet refacing process.

At this point, you are looking at the open, bare, cabinet boxes that hold your bowls, plates, food, plastic bags, and foil.

Step #3 – Installation Of New Cabinet Components

This is the final step of the process. When we are done with this step, you will be able to see the final result of our expert cabinet refacing process. Here we install the following new components:

What is the Reason For Refacing?

You may want to reface your cabinet doors if your kitchen is outdated. Giving your kitchen a desirable facelift can make all the difference. Additionally, if your cabinet doors are cracked, scratched, or have some serious water damage, a reface can restore the appearance and functionality of your kitchen. If your cabinets are too damaged, you might have to replace them completely. Find out whether you need to reface or replace.

What is the Refacing Timeline?

Most cabinet refacing projects are completed in 3-5 days or less, and transform your outdated kitchen into the kitchen of your dreams without the mess and the hassles of a remodeling project that could leave you without your kitchen for months. It is also convenient to add new countertops, floors, backsplashes, and appliances within that same general timeframe.

What is Another Benefit of  Refacing?

Cabinet refacing is a cost-effective and time-efficient way to have a new custom kitchen on a tighter budget while keeping the original layout of your kitchen and permitting more households to have the kitchen of their dreams. Cabinet refacing is also more environmentally friendly and less invasive to your home’s daily activities.
