"The Pegasus crews were professional, efficient, skilled and punctual. My kitchen looks brand new and about 1000 times better! Pegasus really knows what they are" doing and were pleasant to work with. The price was great as well - I had another estimate for 3 times the Pegasus price!

"I did not expect miracles, we have an OLD floor. I believe they over estimated the effectiveness of their service. They were very nice and worked hard. It is" now about 3 years and the finish is peeling in some spots.

Whether you're undertaking a large kitchen remodeling project or just want to liven things up, refacing your cabinets is a low-cost option. Refacing consists of covering the exterior surfaces of your cabinets with new veneers, moldings and hardware.

Not really.  If the contractor is very careful and you are really lucky he might be able to pull them out and then reinstall them after the new cabinets are installed.  A lot of this will have to do with how well the counters were installed in the first place.  Also, the existing countertops may not line up with the new cabinets exactly in some areas as well as they do now.  The better option is to have the cabinets refaced, leaving the boxes and tops in place.  Unlless you have deteriorating particle board cabinets you should be able to get a carpenter to do this.  If you decide to remove the countertops and install new cabinets factor in new tops and be pleasantly surprised if they can be reinstalled afterall.  Realize you probably won't find a contractor willing to gurantee not damaging the tops.  If you do, dig in and research him well.  He likely doesn't have enough experience.

IF dirty enough to make for a musty odor, then paint won't stick to them properly anyway. Paint is not your solution - you probably need a Deep Cleaning. Try to pin down what types of smell it is - if damp, mildewy; rotten food; or musty fabric - will help guide you to the source maybe. Another thing to do is keep all doors closed for a full day when outside temp is such that furnace and A/C can be turned off - then walk around the house, sniffing - preferably with 2 people - and see if one room is the major contributor. I have played this game, and found all the following as sources of musty smells: 1) linen in a closet without ventilation going slightly mildewy 2) water leak in walls or floors enough to cause mold but not drywall staining or visible water 3) carpets needing cleaning 4) water leak in bath or kitchen leaking under floor, causing mold there which is not pronounced in smell because under the flooring 5) attic mildew/mold from leaks or moisture condensation on insulation/wood 6) moldy plants outside - left in garden/flower bed in fall, so rotted in winter/spring 7) clothes in closets touching outside wall, so in very cold weather acted as insulator and let freezing front come to inside of wall, causing frost and moisture to buildup there from the inside moisture, eventually causing mildew/mold (same process as condensation/ice on inside of windows with curtains over them) 8) failure to clean behind kitchen appliances and under sink, or under washer/dryer/dishwasher at least when repaired or changed out 9) heavy lint accumulation in bathroom fan going mildewy 10) grease trap in kitchen exhaust fan never cleaned 11) washing machine going moldy - run a cycle of towels or such with bleach and Borax 12) the number one cause I have found - clothes stacked in closets or hope chests or such for decades get very musty even if clean and ventilated

     As long as the counter is big enough Corian is one of the easier ones to work with. Since it does not have the ground or crushed stone that some of the other material have you can work with normal woodworking tools. A saw with a fine tooth carbide blade and a professional grade router with the proper shaped carbde bit can be used if the edge needs finishing. A belt sander helps on cuts also. The only problem you might have is if you need the joint kits for seaming as I dont think you can buy them.

     When Corian first came out I could buy the slabs and fabricate my own tops and then Dupont went to a certified distributor system and would no longer sell to those of us that had been working with it for years. I will admit that they did have reasons for this as not all that were working with the product were doing it right.




Cabinet Refacing reviews in San Francisco


They delivered everything they promised and we are very happy with the results. As advertised, their process was more efficient than the traditional hardwood cleaning method. It took one worker 1.5 days to treat about 2000 sqft, including the stairs, banisters and spindles. There was no sanding or grinding, but amazingly our floor now looks clean and rejuvenated. The process brought out the glow and colour of the hardwood again, although it did not remove a few of the deeper scratches made that were there when we bought our home. I also liked that one of their customer service officers,

, is very responsive and efficient. They are also flexible with changes and try their best to accommodate the changes to scheduling. Overall, we thought the price we paid was fair, especially since the treatment is expected to last about 4-5 years. We are definitely planning to have the treatment done on our kitchen cabinets when we need them cleaned and refurbished.

My experience with this company was very positive. They were responsive to my initial request for contact and promptly scheduled a time to come and look at my two pieces of furniture. The person who came to my house to examine my furniture was prompt and professional. The person who actually did the work a week later was also prompt and professional and did a great job with my tables. They have never looked better. I was extremely pleased with the services provided by this company.

I waited several months to post this review as I wanted to have the opportunity to live with the floors with my daily routines .
Right away there was a misunderstanding on my part regarding my ability to move right in on the same day so I was a bit stressed to learn that I had to leave them to dry overnight. One of the main reasons for my using N-
San Francisco Cabinet Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and not going with refninshing was so that I could resume my schedule on the same day and not have to deal with the dust etc. The owner
San Francisco Cabinet Refinishers Provider Name Locked
? (Sorry can't remember his name), was responsive to my call and explained why it wouldn't be possible.
The workers did a great job and I was very pleased with the way the floors looked.
I have pretty much followed their suggestions of not wearing outside shoes on the floors and although I haven't worn just socks (per their suggestion) my husband and I have shoes that we only wear inside.
Again, per their suggestion I replaced my brooms with a soft mop and have used a natural floor cleaner with a soft
San Francisco Cabinet Refinishers Provider Name Locked
cloth. The floors have held up pretty well, but the polish or stain that was used does seem to be coming up on the cloth when I wash the floors and they are starting to look kind of sad again in the area near the sink/dishwasher where I stand the most. I did think it would last longer.
Although I would most likely not use this service again I would definitely recommend them for someone who is lookiing for a deep cleaning and polish. I now realize that what I wanted was to have my floor looking newer and lighter and that definitely requires refinishing.

This is the third time I have used Bill for a project. The first project involved rebuilding front stairs and building a deck at a previous residence. The second project was to install an exterior door in a basement location where no door previously existed. The current project was to install some built-in bookcases in the living room and to install cabinets over our washer and dryer. First the bookcases. Bill had them fabricated by a third party and painted, and then installed them in the living room for a finished look. Once installed we were not crazy about the look because of the way they interacted with crown molding and neighboring window trim. With some additional detail work that was not originally scoped, Bill managed to integrate them beautifully into the spot, re-using some crown molding from another part of the house that served no purpose. In the kitchen, we previously had our washer and dryer sitting open in a back area. We worked with Bill on two potential designs, one that involved him building a closet from scratch, and the other that involved using cabinetry from KitchenSync (where Bill referred us). We ended up going with the cabinet design, and Bill worked together with
San Francisco Cabinet Refinishers Provider Name Locked
from Kitchen Sync to ensure that all details were covered. Although we ordered the Kraftmaid cabinetry from Kitchen Sync, there was a certain amount of customization that was necessary for the installation. For example, the washer and dryer themselves were not enclosed in a cabinet. Rather, Bill built a removable frame, and installed double doors (connected with a piano hinge) onto the frame, for a very clean look that gives great access to the washer and dryer. In addition, Bill used other cabinet doors and a cabinet panel to build a small broom closet with shelves next to the washer and dryer, that also allows access to the plumbing, gas line, and dryer vent that are now located in the back of the closet. We also were interested in installing a copper countertop on top of the washer and dryer, which Bill fabricated, had covered in Copper and then installed. This was another great source that saved us a ton of money on the countertop. In the middle of the planning we decided to replace the kitchen floor at the same time. Bill recommended a flooring person who did a great job for a reasonable price, and with whom he coordinated on the installation details. All the projects have come out wonderfully, but just as important Bill is very easy to work with, is fair, honest, and reasonable, communicates issues as they come up, sticks to his timelines, and takes care to ensure that everything is done to satisfaction. Also, he has good knowledge of the trades, and has recommended other professionals to me who have also turned out to be great. Now that this project is done, I plan to use Bill again for the next phase of kitchen upgrades.

was responsive, punctual, performed work on schedule & with quality workmanship. At first, the supplier provided materials which were slightly color-mismatched. When we noticed this after the installation,

contacted the company to obtain the properly matched materials and re-installed them at our earliest convenience. I was impressed by his responsive approach.

showed up a bit late for our first meeting. That's the only negative thing I can say. Pleasant to work with, communicated well, he and one employee finished the job faster than estimated and on budget. Kept area immaculately clean. The cabinets look spectacular, and you'd never know they weren't always white. When it came time to pay, I'd long forgotten the Angie's List coupon,

remembered and applied the discount.

The initial home visit gave us details of choices and just how the job would be accomplished. This was followed by a showroom visit in

offices for final selection of door design,etc. The job was scheduled for a few weeks later. Their measurer came the next week, and work started on time and was done in the agreed 5 days. The work area was clean at the end of each day. The final product was just what we wanted.
