The advantages of a refaced kitchen are plenty. First we save our clients a lot of cash like I have said before. Our process takes a week or less, depending on the size & complexity of course, if we are doing laminate tops or extras excettera & laminate tops are all we do. If the client wants something different then they have to shop for that elsewhere. Once the replacement doors are finished & ready to install, we sand the existing cabinet boxes & apply the new real wood veneer (if it is a wood type job) or laminate if the job is a solid color like white or any solid color that can imagined in about 2-3 days.
Then we do the trim, valence, and extras (if any) then hang the doors & drawer fronts in another day or so. Time is always a great savior when clients want to get back to a new remodeled kitchen in days & not weeks or even months. We do mostly concealed hinges with the newer styles of doors & our door manufacturer has so many to choose from, that it can be a daunting task to decide on. We have the most in the industry. We do not suggest that the average client try this themselves it isn't rocket science, but without the proper tools & knowledge it could be more expensive fixing mistakes later.
