There is an Alternative to Cabinet Refinishing in La Crosse, Winona, Onalaska, Holmen, Sparta & Other Surrounding Communities

cabinet refinishingCabinet refinishing is a potentially effective method for bringing old, dull-looking kitchen cabinets back to life. But, it isn’t the only method, and it may not be the most cost effective. Cabinet refinishing is a highly labor-intensive process that may require the use of hazardous chemicals, which may be a serious concern to many homeowners. Today, the most popular alternative to cabinet refinishing is probably cabinet refacing. It is a process that involves the removal of all doors and draw fronts, then the installation of new wood (or wood composite) fronts, plus new hardware. Whereas refinishing cabinets oftentimes calls for the use of chemicals like trisodium phosphate (TSP), turpentine, primer, paint, and stain, refacing cabinets involves none of that. All new drawers and door fronts are manufactured off-site, then shipped to their final destination ready to install. When refacing, you can also choose from among a large selection of door styles, different wood species, and many different finishes – paint or stain.

Cabinet refacing is particularly attractive for families with children. Unlike with cabinet refinishing, there are no chemicals to contend with, and the entire process takes only a couple of days from start to finish. The cost savings of cabinet refacing is a major selling point, too, as refacing is often noticeably less expensive than full-blown cabinet replacement.
