Your Dream Kitchen

Cabinets are in fact one of the longest lasting components of your entire kitchen. In general, high quality cabinets can last up to fifty years but a frequent conundrum that develops with your kitchen cabinets as they begin to show signs of ageing is whether or not it makes more economic sense to get a whole new kitchen, or make smart and affordable repairs that will make a lasting impression in style and your bank.

A handful of factors can cause your kitchen cabinets to wear away faster, regardless of their original quality. Common damages include water causing the wood to bend, mold, or bubbling up from the inside and outside – each situation calls for a distinct surface preparation technique as well as finding and then stopping the source of the water from getting into the newly painted cabinets.

Hiring Cardinal Pro Painters will guarantee that before you spend your hard earned money, time, and effort repainting your cabinets, you are getting the correct prep work as we identify and deal with problems such as mold. It is not unusual to see moldy cabinets, especially since the kitchen is one of the most humid and often the wettest area of the home. When mold is found early on it can be cleaned up and stopped, but when it is left unidentified, it will continue to grow and worsen. Not only does mold damage the overall veracity of your cabinets, but also large amounts of mold is harmful to you and your family’s health. It is, therefore, very crucial to identify the source of water so that the problem does not continue to occur in the future and ruin an impeccable paint job.

Likewise, if the cabinet shell is too worn for you to re-drill new holes or mount new hinges, the structure of the cabinet box will not be durable enough to support new cabinet doors. Without the ability to work with the present wood, your entire cabinet needs to be replaced; otherwise, you risk wasting a lot of money trying to make unsuccessful repairs. Therefore, prior to buying new doors, sanding down, or repainting your old cabinets, you should make sure that the wood is able to support new holes and hinges. All this valuable advice comes with hiring an expert.

Since cabinets can last for such a long time, refacing them means that you may require to update the doors, paint the exterior, potentially place a layer of veneer on the cabinet’s face as well as install new components, such as handles that make a refreshed statement. This procedure allows you to update wooden cabinets without necessarily breaking the bank. How long your cabinets last after repairs or restorations will be contingent on the expert help you hire.

Proper Prepwork to Refinish Kitchen Cabinets

Stripping the cabinets and hardware, evaluating the damages and needed repairs, preparing the surfaces by covering the area so as to avoid getting paint or debris on your property are some of the integral steps in an excellent cabinet paint job.

We also sand all the surfaces that need to be painted as part of the preparation process for a correct paint adhesion. We do an exquisite job of trimming and brushing all the frames and shells of your cabinets, and in order to achieve a level and spotless finish on all your cabinet doors, we spray paint them.

Before spray painting, we’ll use a strong primer not only to create a bonding surface for paint but also to reduce the number of coverings applied. As well as producing a base for the paint, using a quality primer leaves the pores in the permeable materials sufficiently sealed and averts the normal peeling, cracking and fading of the paint. If applied properly, the primer will enhance the life of the paint as well as improve its appearance.

While the good-old paint brush will give the same desired outcome, spray painting remains a favored choice for professional cabinet painters because it provides flawless factory like finish and is a fast way to apply high quality paint coatings to a wide range of surfaces at a fraction of the time, unlike traditional methods that could take much longer to complete the same job. Spray painting also offers a high transfer application and a controlled atomisation resulting in a superior high quality finish on all types of surfaces that will give your cabinets a uniform appearance. Furthermore, the color of paint applied on top of the primer lasts longer than one without the primer.

Once your cabinets are spray painted and completely dry, they are installed the correct way. One of the main challenges homeowners’ come up against when reinstalling cabinet door fronts on without the help of a professional, is figuring out such confusion, we label each cabinet opening and door front with corresponding numbers marked on painter’s tape.
