Cabinet Refacing reviews in Chicago
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!
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.
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.
