Refinishing your cabinets is an affordable way to add substantial value to your home. Whether you are refinishing your kitchen, bathroom, or basement cabinets it will save you 75% when compared to replacing the cabinets with a new factory finish. Professional cabinet refinishing can give new life to your cabinets and restore their natural beauty with a new color and a new look to update and brighten your home.

When refinishing your cabinets, it is important to hire the right professional to make sure the job gets done efficiently and properly. Attempting to DIY your cabinet refinishing can give you an instant updated look however most times you will notice the paint will chip and wear rather quickly. Using the correct product when refinishing cabinets will determine the outcome of your cabinet project. Here at Top Shelf Painting we use a 2-part catalyst primer and topcoat to ensure a long-lasting chip free finish.

The Top Shelf Painting process of properly refinishing cabinets is rather elaborate to ensure a long-lasting chip resistant finish. Removing the cabinet doors, drawers and all hardware is the first step in the process, followed by cleaning and degreasing all cabinets. If they are kitchen cabinets, they may require an in-depth degreasing and cleaning process to remove all contaminates from the wood.

Next will be sanding down the wood to create a smooth clean surface for the coating to properly adhere to. This step will also show any debris that may have been missed in the cleaning and degreasing process.

Once the cabinets are clean and sanded down, we will repair any imperfections in the wood and fill all gaps properly. The cabinets will then be ready for a primer coat. Using the correct primer is pivotal in this step as it will be the difference between the final coat lasting weeks or years.

Once there is an initial primer applied you will be able to see any additional imperfections that may have been missed so we can fill them in at that time. The cabinets will again need to be sanded to maintain the flawless smooth factory finish. Now back to the spray booth they go to get the second coat of primer. Again, they will be sanded down and cleaned of any debris or dust then they are ready for the initial topcoat to be applied.

Once the initial topcoat is applied, they will need to cure and pass inspection before the final topcoat can be applied. After the final topcoat is applied and the cabinets have cured, they are ready for installation of new hardware (if necessary) and headed back home for installation.
