Are you looking to have your kitchen cabinets updated without breaking the bank? This could be a wise decision since cabinet refacing can give your kitchen a fresh, updated look without the cost of replacing them entirely! According to Today’s Homeowner, high-quality wood cabinets can last up to 50 years. Styles change frequently, so kitchen cabinet refacing can help you achieve a different aesthetic while maximizing your cabinets’ lifespan. Here are three key things to ask your cabinet refacing company.
What Materials Will You Use?
One of the most important things to ask your cabinet refacing company is what materials they will plan on using for the refacing process. Several materials are available, each with its benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to understand your options and what will work best for your kitchen. Laminate is a popular material because of its affordability and durability however, it can appear less authentic upon close inspection. Veneer is another popular material, but is more expensive than laminate, due to its natural look and feel, and ability to be refinished if it is ever damaged. Your cabinet refacing company should provide you with detailed information on any material and help you choose the right one based on your needs and budget.
How Long Will the Process Take?
Another important question to ask your cabinet refacing company is how long the process will take. At Better Than New Kitchens, our average reface install time with new build add-on cabinets is 3.5 days. However, timelines for any project can vary depending on the size of your kitchen, the materials used, and the project’s complexity, making it difficult to give a reasonable timeline with that crucial information. It’s important to clearly understand before the project begins how long the process will take so that you can plan accordingly, and not be blindsided after the project begins. Your cabinet refacing company should be able to provide you with a detailed timeline and keep you updated throughout the process.
What Is Included in the Cost?
Finally, asking your cabinet refacing company what is included in the project’s cost is essential. The cost of refacing your cabinets can vary depending on a range of factors, including the materials used, the time the project takes, and much more. It’s essential to clearly understand what is included in the cost and what additional expenses you may incur. This might include setbacks in acquiring the materials, miscommunications during planning, and unexpected damage to cabinets. Better Than New Kitchens includes a 5-year warranty on select projects, easing any worries after your project is complete. Your cabinet refacing company should be able to provide you with a detailed estimate that outlines all of the expenses associated with the project.
