Cabinet Refacing Features & Options

The Let’s Face It Cabinet Refacing Process

Every kitchen and client has unique needs and requirements. As a result, a certified, experienced staff designer will arrange a visit to your home to learn more about your needs and recommend one of many restoration/refacing options that best suits your requirements.

Please note the usual steps to get started:

  1. Call or email to arrange a convenient time for our staff designer to visit you at your home. Our designer will bring an array of popular door styles and finishes as well as countertop options when he visits.
  2. Upon arrival, our designer will listen to your ideas. Feel free to share your Pinterest or magazine photos of what you aspire in your new kitchen.
  3. We will evaluate your existing cabinetry and review several refacing solutions based on your budget considerations. Choose from our economical thermofoil system or our design line, an all wood refacing system featuring the latest in designer doors and finishes. Create a custom finish, of any kind, that is right for you!
  4. Because we are a full service company, our designer will introduce other complementary components that will enhance your new cabinet choice. Choose granite countertops, a tile backsplash, new flooring, or a better way to light your new kitchen.
  5. After selections are made, our designer will summarize your choices and will make arrangements for a follow up budget estimate presentation.

Once you agree to move forward:

  1. An experienced engineer will schedule a time to visit your home to review your contract and answer any additional concerns. He will then take all critical measurements, etc. to process your order. Please allow approximately 1 1/2 hours to accomplish these measurements.
  2. Please know that all materials need to be made to order to ensure precise fit and function. Typically allow six weeks turnaround for most materials.
  3. Once we receive and verify accuracy of ALL materials, you will be contacted by our customer service team to schedule your installation date.
  4. Your installer will be a company employee and will arrive at your prearranged time. He will completely review your project and explain what to expect during the process.
  5. Our Production Manager will make periodic visits to ensure your satisfaction.
  6. Most work is completed within a week depending on the extent of contracted work.
  7. Upon completion, a “Project Referral Manual” will be prepared especially for you. It will contain some “before pictures,” care and maintenance tips, all of your contract paperwork, and our customer referral program.
  8. WE GUARANTEE YOUR SATISFACTION!
