So Whats all this talk about refacing? It’s a fast, less costly and far less inconvenient way of updating your kitchen. Unlike refinishing you can change your wood species, door style and color. Refacing involves covering the exposed sides and toe kicks of you cabinets with plywood and veneering the faces. Then we replace the doors,hinges, drawer fronts and moldings all in your choice of maple, oak, alder, knotty alder or beech. The material all comes to your house finished and takes on average 3 to 5 days. There are many door styles and unlimited colors to choose from. All your appliances are functioning through the whole process and usually runs about 30% less than new. If you already have new counter tops this also may be your only choice.
