Cabinet Refacing by Granite Transformations
The advantage of refacing your kitchen cabinets rather than simply tearing them out and rebuilding them is that more often than not, there is nothing wrong with the physical structure of the cabinets themselves; it is primarily a cosmetic renovation. By removing the door, drawers and hardware and replacing just these surface items, you can save time, inconvenience, aggravation, money, as well as wear and tear on the rest of your kitchen.
Cabinet refacing can be done, from initial measurement to final installation and cleanup, in as little as a few days. A full scale kitchen renovation often involves going without the use of your kitchen for several weeks. Even if you can manage to set up a temporary kitchen in another part of the house, there are hidden costs in the form of increased food and restaurant bills during the renovation, and collateral damage to flooring and countertops as a result of the cabinet demolition. Add to that the fact that cabinet replacement can cost anywhere between $15,000 and $40,000, as it is usually part of a full kitchen remodeling.
If there’s nothing wrong with your existing cabinets, but your kitchen is showing its 10+ years, then cabinet refacing may be right for you.
