Cabinet Refacing: The Simplest Way to Replace Cabinets Underneath Your Granite
Don’t panic! Instead of experiencing buyer’s remorse and cursing over the thousands of dollars you’ve just spent on a brand-new countertop, you have cabinet refacing as an option!
You’ll get exactly the look you want, for a fraction of the price of new custom cabinets, and you can rest assured your granite slab will remain intact.
“Can’t we just move the granite slab, replace the cabinets, and put the slab back in place?”
Sometimes our customers are wary of refacing. We get that, but the truth is that cabinet refacing can give you the same effect of new cabinets, with less stress, in less time, at an amazing value.
What you should be VERY wary about is moving a granite slab once it’s installed; it’s a recipe for breakage and going over-budget. Granite slabs are impossible to repair well once they’re seriously cracked, chipped or damaged.
Separating them from the cabinet frames is a delicate—and sometimes impossible—job that places granite at risk. Also, odds are that removing your granite will void your manufacturer’s warranty and that is a big no-no in case you need it down the road.
“Will refaced cabinets really look like brand new custom cabinet replacements?”
Yes, they will. Cabinet refacing is an innovative process that saves landfills, reduces your budget by upwards of 50% and leaves your kitchen looking like it was completely remodeled.
Here are some of the benefits of cabinet refacing—the only cabinet “replacement” option that is guaranteed to preserve your granite slab intact!
- Your existing cabinets will be reinforced. There are very few occasions when cabinet refacing isn’t a possibility, and only occur when your cabinet frames have been water damaged or structurally injured beyond repair.
- You can have any look you want. There isn’t a single style or aesthetic that cabinet refacing can’t give you. We work with beautiful hardwood cabinets, practically indestructible laminate cabinet doors
- It’s a sustainable kitchen renovation option. cabinet refacing is markedly more sustainable (aka: eco-friendly) than full cabinet replacement options.
