Frequently Asked Questions
What is refacing?
Refacing is the installation of new doors and drawer fronts on existing kitchen cabinets and covering the exterior of the cabinet boxes to match the new doors. We can also install new drawer boxes, slide outs, and organizers to increase your kitchen’s functionality.
What are the doors made from?
Our doors consist of a 3/4″ HDF (high-density fiberboard), covered with a heavy, durable, low maintenance 3D laminate vinyl.
How much does it cost?
The cost of Refacing varies from kitchen to kitchen, depending on size and chosen options. Generally, Refacing will cost up to 40% less than a brand-new kitchen of the same size and quality.
Can I add soft close to my existing drawers?
Unfortunately, no. The slow-close mechanisms we use are integrated with the drawer box side itself. A new drawer is required to gain this feature.
Do you use real wood?
No. Because wood can expand and contract with temperature and humidity changes, it is not the most suitable material to be used in Canada and especially Saskatchewan.
Do you refinish cabinets?
No, we do not spray, paint, or stain cabinets.
Will the doors peel?
The industry standard for heat resistance requires that doors withstand 24 hours at 120ºF (49ºC) and 70% humidity without showing discolouration, blistering or other material failure. Our doors and drawer fronts exceed this standard. Our average heat resistance is 185ºF (85ºC); the range is 175ºF–210ºF (79ºC–99ºC).
Where do the materials come from?
We can proudly say Canada! Quality cabinet doors and components for your Refacing projects are made in London, Ontario.
Can I reuse my existing hinges and door handles?
For warranty reasons, we install new, top quality, soft-close hinges. But we will reuse your existing handles or knobs if you like.
Can you reface bathroom cabinets?
Yes! You can Reface more areas of your home than you may think. Reuse existing cabinet boxes and save time and resources updating not only your kitchen, but your bathroom, home office, laundry room, and garage cabinets as well.
How much does a quote cost?
Quotes are free and take about an hour to complete. At the end of the appointment, you will be given your quote, no waiting!
How long does it take?
Our Refacing projects typically take 1-4 days to complete, but your exact project length will depend on the size of your kitchen and the accessories you choose. From the initial consultation to installation, the full process takes about 8 weeks.
