Evaluating Cabinets for Resurfacing
If cabinets are wood and have visible flaws, resurfacing is a good option. Resurfacing will cover these flaws and give a new, updated look to cabinets. New material is put on top of the existing cabinet frames and the doors and drawer fronts are replaced.
The Resurfacing Process
- The process begins with detailed measurements of doors, drawers, and boxes.
- Cabinet doors and drawers are removed. Drawer fronts are removed.
- New veneer skins are carefully cut and applied to the front portion of the cabinet boxes and face frames. Some veneers are peel-and-stick, while others are applied with contact cement or other adhesives, using rollers.
- Cabinet sides are skinned with wood veneer or laminate.
- New door hinges are added, if needed. Hinges in good condition can be reused.
- New doors and drawer fronts are installed. New doors are mounted on the frames of the cabinets.
- New handles, drawer pulls, and other types of fixtures are installed; existing hardware can be reused, if desired and it is in good shape.
- Optional accessories, such as crown molding, glass panels, lighting, or storage accessories such as pull-out shelves may be installed.
