KITCHEN CABINET REFACING
Most Contractors, use for Refacing Kitchen Cabinets components, doors and drawer fronts, made of engineered wood. The core is made of MDF or particle board, and surface is a film of melamine, either in solid color or imitation of Wood grain, protected with solent based Lacquer. Lacquers are not durable and start blistering and deteriorating in a short time. In addition, these finishes cannot be touched up without noticing a difference in color, shade or sheen.

KITCHEN CABINET REFINISHING
There are a few ways of Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets in solid, opaque color, Painted-like applications.
1. Spraying with tinted Lacquer – Most Contractors use this application because is the fastest and easiest for them. With 1-2 coats of solvent based and tinted Lacquer, Cabinets can be refinished in 2-3 days. Initially, they look good but finish is not durable and does not last. In a short time, in areas exposed to aggressive elements in Kitchens, like moisture, fumes from cooking, oil from human sweat and moisture, they start deteriorating and showing blisters, finish peels off, wears from cleaning, and disintegrates from aggressive elements and everyday use. Lacquer finishes are impossible to touch up with roller or brush and any repairs have to be done by spraying the entire door or drawer front which has to be done by a professional Cabinet Refinisher and is costly. This is a bad choice for finishing Kitchen Cabinets.
2. Spraying with tinted Polyurethane or Conversion varnish – This application is better than lacquer one
but has also disadvantage because of being difficult to do repairs and touch up without spraying the
elements of Cabinetry. In heavy use areas of the kitchen, finish tends to wear and disintegrate after a
while which makes any repair costly since homeowner needs to hire a professional finisher to do
3. The best way of refinishing kitchen cabinets is to employ a traditional method but use high quality
finishing products available on today's market. After thorough preparation involving cleaning with TSP,
sanding, patching and caulking where necessary, 2 coats of oil-based or shellac-based primer should
be applied to prevent existing color from bleeding through. Then minimum 2 coats of urethane fortified
alkyd enamel should be applied for a smooth, washable, durable and lasting finish.
4. Please notice that 1 coat of lacquer has 1 mil of thickness, 1 coat of Polyurethane, Conversion varnish,
Primer and Enamel have 1.5 mil, so all finishes done by Kitchen Remodeling Masters have min 6 mil
thickness, compare with others.
5. For Stained Finished wood cabinets, most Contractors use the same application as for painted ones,
the only difference is that Lacquer is tinted with translucent colorants, and only 1 coat of Lacquer is
applied. Aggressive kitchen environment makes negative impact on cabinet finish this way in a short
6. At Kitchen Remodeling Masters, for Stained finishes, we use only Urethane enriched oil-based
Gel-Stain. After thorough preparation involving cleaning with TSP, sanding, blending damaged
areas with existing finish, we hand-apply 2 coats of oil-based and Urethane enriched gel-stain to get a
desire color and depth, then we protect finish with 2 coats of acrylic polyurethane for a smooth,
washable, durable and lasting finish. Sanding between coats is a part of application to ensure proper
adhesion and smooth finish.
