• What is Refacing?

    • Refacing by Pro Refinish means that the cabinet boxes, trim, crown molding and all exterior surfaces will be sprayed with a new, top of the line 2K Polyurethane factory finish. This means that your color choices are unlimited.
    • All the doors and drawer fronts will be replaced with new ones, including new, soft close hinges.
    • As an option, we can also add matching end panels and other upgrades to make your cabinets feel more custom built.
  • Refacing Benefits VS New Cabinets

  • Scope of Refacing

    Standard refacing:

    • Replacing all doors (with soft close hinges) and drawer fronts
    • Refinishing the face frame and side panels of the existing cabinet boxes on site with a matching, sprayed, factory finish

    Optional items may include:

    • Adding new or modifying existing cabinets
    • New drawer boxes, soft close slides
    • New handles and other hardware if needed
    • Installing  pull out shelves
    • Any custom carpentry work, including trim and crown molding
  • Door Styles

    There are hundreds of door styles to choose from.

    Let’s first review the three types of door styles:

    Slab-Slab means there is a flat front with straight edges. Slab is the way to go if you want a contemporary, modern look to your kitchen.

    Recessed Panel-This type consists of a frame with a panel that is recessed. Shaker style is the most popular for a recessed panel type with a clean classic look. This type can also have different frame widths, edges and shapes added to it as well such as our Farmhouse X style.


    Raised Panel-This type consists of a frame and a panel that is raised rather than recessed. This type has a more traditional and old world look with more embellishments to the edges and shapes.

    Depending on what look you are going for will determine which type of door to start with and then decide on the frame widths, edges and shapes.

    You can also mix and match types.

    For example, you can choose a slab drawer front with shaker style or Farmhouse X door  Or, Shaker style drawer with Farmhouse X door? The possibilities are up to you!

    Other ideas can include having one door style on the wall cabinets and a different one on the base cabinets.

    The combinations are unlimited.

  • Materials

    • Doors and drawer fronts: HDF composite for painted finishes, solid maple or other hardwood for stained finish
    • Finish: 2K Polyurethene, the most durable factory finish on the market
    • Application of finish: Sprayed
    • Hardware: Blum soft close hinges and soft close drawer slides


If the answer is yes to any of the options below, refacing would be your best option in almost every case.

  • You don’t like your current doors style
  • Your doors are structurally weak, cracking, have loose joints
  • You don’t have the original factory finish, the cabinets have been repainted already
  • You want to upgrade from standard to full overlay
  • Your cabinets are oak
  • You want a stain finish
  • Your cabinets are thermofoil
  • Your cabinet doors are laminate and the laminate is coming loose

Full overlay means that the doors and drawer fronts cover almost the entire cabinet box when closed. There is usually only a 1/4″ gap between the doors and drawer fronts as opposed to about 1″-2″ with standard overlay doors.

We never use veneer on cabinet face frames that are almost always solid hardwood, like maple, oak or cherry. These solid wood surfaces can be refinished with any color of a sprayed factory finish, paint or stain that will make it indistinguishable from a new factory finish. However once a veneer has been applied to the surface, it can no longer be refinished and it will be apparent that the cabinet has been refaced.

Since the cabinets will be sprayed with an actual paint or stain finish, the color choices are unlimited. We can match any paint or stain color of any brand from Benjamin Moore to Farrow and Ball .

ML Campbell precat lacquers and conversion varnishes, the most durable factory finishes on the market.

ProRefinish is a custom cabinet shop, we can build almost any style of cabinet doors made of solid wood.
