Hand Restoration Process
The process we use for cabinets is a great way to brighten up your kitchen without spending the money on new cabinets. We tarp and mask all floor surfaces, counter tops and appliances. All the wood surfaces are cleaned with our water based wood cleaner to remove dirt, oil, grease, and other contaminates from the wood surface. Depending on the damage of the wood we sand out all finished wood surfaces. This include the fronts and backs of all doors, all drawers, boxes (the wood the doors are attached to) baseboards and crown moldings. Heavily damaged areas will be sanded down to raw wood and color matched. With this process we can tint the color of the cabinets slightly to warm or update. But, more extreme color changes can be accomplished with our tinted lacquer spraying technique.
After the stain is dry we apply 2 heavy coats of our waterborne polyurethane to restore the shine and protect the wood surfaces for years to come. Everything from the counter tops and things in the drawers will need to be removed. These jobs take one to two days depending on the size. The kitchen will not be functional until the day after we leave due to curing times. What’s left is your kitchen looking the way it should, the way it did originally.
