In our experience, we have found that the cost of refacing is half the price of a new kitchen. In most cases, the existing cabinets are in workable condition and can be refaced. The quality of kitchen refacing is comparable to or better than new cabinets.

Yes! We can replace your countertop as we are refacing your kitchen. Replacing your countertop is an optional purchase and is sometimes not necessary for giving your kitchen a new look.
Any type of NON-ABRASIVE cleaner can be used to clean the surfaces of your doors and countertop. Abrasive cleansers will scratch off the protective finish of these surfaces and cause your kitchen to appear damaged. The following is our recommendations for cleaners:
- Wood Doors: Mild dish detergent with warm water and a soft cloth.
Do not use any type of wood cleaner, such as Murphy’s Oil. These cleaners tend to wear or eat the finish off the wood.
- Laminate Doors: Mild dish detergent with warm water and a soft cloth, Windex, and Countertop Magic.
- Countertops: Mild dish detergent with warm water and a soft cloth, Windex, and Countertop Magic. For deep stained on light colored tops, use Clorox Gel with bleach or another comparable product.
