WHAT IS KITCHEN CABINET REFACING ?
Question: What is cabinet refacing ?
Answer: Cabinet refacing consists of taking off all the old cabinet doors and drawer fronts and replacing them
with new drawer fronts, drawer boxes and cabinet doors of your choice and style (custom fitted with self-closing
hinges) & your choice of hardware. All exposed surfaces are entirely covered with 1/4 inch matching top-quality
laminate or wood covering. There’s no need to remove your cabinets from the walls. The whole process normally
