Cabinet Refacing Reviews in Chicago


let me know what time he'd be arriving and texted me that morning to confirm. He arrived right on time and I explained to him what our real estate agent said about painting our beautiful cherry kitchen cabinets white. He told us not to do it. He said that they are beautiful the way they are and that painting them would be a crime.
He basically took money out of his own pocket by being honest!
is the absolute best.
We talked about other ways to possibly make the kitchen brighter and he was very helpful. He showed us photos of his other work and it was beautiful!
don't bother calling around for other quotes.
is a complete professional and extremely honest. Rare traits in this day and age.

My townhome was built in 2002, and I always hated the kitchen cabinets that came with my home. The kitchen layout was great, and the cabinets themselves were quality, but I didn't like the traditional look of them. My taste runs very modern. I decided that after over 10 years, that refacing them was best option for a "new" kitchen"
I contacted
based on the reviews here. I also contacted another cabinet refacing company that had good reviews as well.
's quote was much lower than the other companies, and his reviews were a bit better. I went with
and he was very easy to deal with. I told him exactly the look I was going for (I didn't even show him pictures, just told him!), and he nailed it. The quality of his communication and work are unparalleled.
When I came home after he finished, my jaw dropped. It was like walking in to a brand new home.
Without hesitation, I would recommend
is a true craftsman.

was very prompt and courteous; however, they were too busy for my job. They said they were booked out already 6-8 weeks in advance. It was small and probably not worth their time as well so I don't blame them.

It went very well.

provided an estimate on the spot at our first meeting. He described the entire process before starting.

brought by paint samples to choose from and even invited me to see a finished product in another client's home (with their permission of course). He paid a lot of attention to detail. We had an odd door that needed some attention. He spent a ton of time getting it just right. Communication was very easy with

. He explained everything and kept us informed on the progress he was making. We are thrilled with the finished product!

They never returned our calls nor provided the estimate as promised. If you're looking for a responsive and responsible provider to help re-finish your cabinets. Look elsewhere.

I could not be happier with the work and the service from this company. They renew and resurface wood with a different kind of process that involves no dust or odor like the typical resurfacing. This was ideal for me. My 20-year-old cabinets are a light wood color and there are grayish
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
and dark streaks that I can't clean off. However I like the original color and did not want to change it or paint over it.
The salesman
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
came to my house and explained the process. He told me that they could remove the dirt, grease spots, etc, but could not guarantee heavily damaged spots. I appreciated that he was up front about that. He gave me the names of 3 customers as referrrals, but I also checked other sites on line for other opinions. All of them expressed satisfaction with the work. So I called
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
back and scheduled the work.
The team came out about a week later. I feel bad that I don't remember their names, but there were 2 guys. They arrived on time, 9am, and called in advance to let me know they were on their way. They evaluated my cabinets and told me that they could do a good job, but they were careful again to let me know not to expect miracles. They removed the doors to clean them. They remove the fixtures too to get under them. They use some kind of paste that removes wax build-up, dirt, grease, marinara sauce(!) etc. After that they apply a coating that restores and protects the original wood. They do the exterior of the cabinets too, but NOT the inside. That was OK with me It dries quickly, then they put the fixtures back on (this is a good excuse to update your fixtures) and rehang the doors. The entire process is surprisingly quick, they were done at about 3pm. They cleaned up after themselves and took all the trash out. And they gave me a bottle of a cleaner to use on my gorgeous new cabinets - a nice gift!

's work, I got in touch with him in late May. I telephoned some of his references (enthusiastic), and he came by to plan the project a couple of times. I could tell right away he was knowledgeable and thorough. I ended up having him work alone in the house while I was out working, and he was completely trustworthy doing so.
This project was to be a surprise for my wife (my friends tell me that was an insanely gutsy move), so I wanted to schedule the work while she was out of the country.

worked with me on that, and nailed his completion time estimate perfectly.

has sources of quality materials -- I know just enough about wood and woodworking to see that the doors he brought in are high quality. He also knows hinges and hardware, which can make a huge difference in durability and feel. We had him back a couple times (both my wife and my mother-in-law like him a lot, too) because my wife wanted to try a door variation, and to have him install some in-cabinet drawers. This again was impressively well-done.
Price: I didn't try negotiating price or shopping the job around -- he was clearly charging a reasonable rate and I was more interested in a quality job with no aggravation than I was in saving a few hundred dollars. Viewing this refacing this project as a replacement for a tremendously expensive full kitchen renovation made it a bargain in any case.
One final thing that really made working with
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
a pleasure is how responsive he is to email -- I prefer email, especially with contractors, because then I have a record of who said what and when. So many contractors don't use email, use it sporadically or poorly, or otherwise communicate poorly, that he really stood out.

From our first meeting with
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
Buka Design & Build what I came away with is - he really listened. Kitchens are not easy to reconstruct. There could be plumbing, electrical or structural problems to deal with in the redesign of kitchens, but we had no problem at all with our vision of what we wanted done and what
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
and his crew were very informative to what could and could not be done. He was patient and realistic to our needs of how the kitchen would function and arriving early and staying late showed his devotion to the project. He revised some of our bad planning and resolved it to our satisfaction with no complications.

and his crew were focused, hardworking and very professional while we enjoyed peace of mind and saved money with the kitchen installation. We were very happy with the kitchen cabinets as the appliances picked out by

fit perfectly in the kitchen remodeling scheme. We are truly grateful for such a well done job. I would highly recommend his work for kitchen remodeling because he will deliver every time.

I purchased a new condo with a great kitchen in structure, but it needed some updating. The cabinets were in good condition, but they were a light maple. I wanted to update the kitchen and darken the cabinets to an espresso/walnut color. I reached out to several vendors on Angie's List and felt that

) was by far the most knowledgeable, reliable, and would provide a quality service.
As a first-time homeowner, I was nervous about leaving my kitchen cabinets in someone's hands, but I'm so glad I found

. I sent him photos of the kitchen and he provided a reasonable estimate over the phone. After pricing out several other contractors, I felt comfortable that his price was reasonable and competitive. Next,
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
scheduled a time to come out to see the kitchen in person, firm up his estimate and pick out stains. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He was patient as I took my time to decide on the final stain.

came back to remove the doors to my cabinets and took them back to his shop to be custom refinished. He has a shop where he sands and stains his work. The cabinets come back looking like they came straight out of a factory. He adds several layers of stain for a quality finish.
After the cabinet doors were completed,
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
came back to my kitchen to sand and stain my cabinet frames. He was so meticulous with his work. He carefully masked off the walls, granite, and the cabinet interiors. He treated my kitchen like it was his own home. He carefully stained the cabinets with a sprayer and was sure to use a fan for the fumes.

was very detailed in his work and consistently consulted me for my opinion to insure I was satisfied with the final product.
In the end, I was more than satisfied.

's professionalism and craftsmanship truly exceeded all expectations. He did an outstanding job, down to the details. My kitchen looks incredible and is exactly what I wanted. He even drilled holes and helped me pick out hardware for the cabinets, which I installed weeks later once they arrived. Not only was
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
a quality partner, but also he was very responsive and flexible on my schedule. He traveled over an hour and a half to reach my condo, but was consistently on time and would respond to all of my emails within the same day. I felt very comfortable leaving
Chicago Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
alone in my home. He is an upstanding contractor and I would highly recommend

to anyone and everyone.
If you need any custom refinishing in your home, I highly recommend

We had oak kitchen cabinets that we desired to be painted. We did alot of research into how best to achieve the desired smooth finish, and purchased all of the supplies, such as wood grain filler, sand paper, and paint, to do it ourselves. When we decided the job was a little too big for us, we call Polite and he was able to use the supplies we had already acquired to do the job. He took the cabinet doors to work on in his shop, and scheduled a time to begin work in our house.

The total job took a little while longer than we had expected and longer than Polite has estimated, but the overall result was positive.
