For example: Crown moulding.

                      Modifications to existing cabinets (Cutting length or width)

                      Laminate Counter top installation.

Plan for a four day installation. 

Preparation is key and to help speed up the process you can help by removing cabinet doors and countertop. 

Organize your kitchen Renovation 

 Know where to place all your kitchen items so finding them is quicker.

  Customers think, that there is no need to remove items from the inside of the cabinets and all work is completed on the outside. Not true. When re-attaching countertops or modifying cabinets we still need to get into the corner cabinet (if you have them) to connect the miter joints. Also the drawers should be removed, not all contents, just some because we need to get our drills inside to remove the screws that the drawer fronts in place. 

 Helping out in the cleanup each night (optional) gives me more time to complete your kitchen. A lot can be completed in a half hour.

At the end of each day your stove, refrigerator and sink are available for you to use(In most cases)

  • Sand  paper
  • Rollers and Brushes
  • 1 to 2 gallons of finish paint (Included for the cabinet interiors)
  • Tape

  • Average to paint cabinet doors..$200-$400

Kitchen Cabinet Painting Vs Kitchen Refacing 

Kitchen Cabinet painting is a common question I get quite often.

Here are the opinions to consider.

  • Are you satisfied with your current kitchen layout.
  • Are the cabinet boxes in good condition with not water damage or interior damage.
  • Is there any veneer peeling of the cabinet ends or sides.
  • If all is good then painting is a good option the kitchen refacing.
  • Optional painting the cabinet doors. (Some people consider painting their cabinet doors as a cost saving idea)
       A lot of my clients understand that the cost to properly prepare then paint the cupboard doors cost more then a simple replacement.    
       That is why we replace  then paint kitchen cabinet doors.

Kitchen Refacing With Scaltscpe Magazine

Rather than tearing out good-quality kitchen cabinets that have worn out their welcome, homeowners are choosing to renovate, by refacing and painting 


REPLACING KITCHEN cabinets can be costly and time-consuming. Renovating existing cabinetry is a better option for homeowners like Susan Stacey, of Waverley, NS, who decided to reface her cabinets. That involves replacing doors and drawer fronts, and fitting the outside of the cabinets with a matching outer skin. "We liked the layout of our kitchen," Stacey says. "We had enough cabinets, so we didn't have to take out the frames. Less mess, less fuss. We went without our kitchen for three days."

Stacey wanted a clean, modern look, so chose light maple Shaker-Style doors and drawer fronts, and installed frosted glass in a few doors. To complement the modern lines of the cabinetry, Stacey chose brushed stainless steel door handles, replaced the old hinges with European concealed hinges, and changed her counter top with a rich, dark granite.

"Refacing kitchen cabinets is far more than sticking on new doors," says Robert Stack, owner of Kitchen Refacers in Sackville, NS, a Web-based business with an online showroom. According to Stack, refacing appeals to many homeowners because it eliminates the expense and disorder involved in pulling out cabinets. As well, refacing doesn't require costly alterations to the electrical system, plumbing, or flooring.

Most of the kitchens Stack refaces are at least 20 years old, and many have sturdy plywood doors and shelves. "Older cabinets were made at a time when building a kitchen was a slower process," he says. "Many are custom fit and made from high-quality materials." Stack says they take more weight than particle board, the hinges hold better, and shelves don't sag. Stack says his normal price for refacing is between $3,000 and $5,000. It's a range that he says is roughly half the price of replacing the cabinets.

Paige Watson, in Kingswood, NS, also chose to reface her kitchen cabinets, opting as well to replace a built-in desk with a pantry, and add an island. "It was a nice kitchen before, but it just wasn't my taste," Watson says. Like Susan Stacey, Watson hired Robert Stack to do the work. For both the refaced cabinets and new pantry with roll-out shelves, Watson went with an easy-to-clean white vinyl. In all, she ended up replacing counter tops, cabinet doors and hardware, as well as the sink, faucet and appliances. She also added an island and pantry.
