To Resurface or Replace-The Age Old Question

If you have decided that it’s time for a new look in your home, the cabinetry is a great place to start to accomplish a dramatic change with minimal work. But should you resurface your current cabinets or replace them? Consider these points to help you make the right choice for your home.

We Can Help You Choose Between Less Costly Resurfacing and Longer-Lasting Replacement.


While cabinet resurfacing is less expensive in most cases, the age of the cabinets is a huge factor in whether it’s a good idea. If your cabinet system is more than a decade old, resurfacing can cause material cracks, weakness, and other issues that end up making your cabinets look worn. However, if your cabinet system is fairly new, a resurfacing job can save you on material cost and labor.


If you would like not just a new look but also a new layout, it’s always best to go with a cabinet replacement. Many times, trying to salvage cabinets when remodeling can lead to problems with function and fitting. However, if you are looking for a new look but not fully remodeling, cabinet resurfacing can provide the same effect without the cost of replacement.


As always, your budget plays a big part in the work you would like done. Typically, resurfacing your cabinets is much less costly than a complete replacement. But, if it makes sense to replace the setup to get a longer life without the worry of repair or maintenance.
