Cabinet Refacing Courtenay - Main 3

Read what our customers say...

Bill and Sheila G. ~ Comox

We were being transferred and needed to sell our home quickly. Our realtor said our best bet was to update the kitchen cabinets and install new countertops. We didn't want to take the house off the market while everything got dismantled so we went with the refacing option. All told we spent under $4800, which was more than recouped a few weeks later when the house sold. We got some great offers.

 

John and Susan M. ~ Courtenay

It didn't take much convincing for us to go the refacing route. Three contractors quoted us $6200 to $7500 to tear out and replace our old cabinets. You pointed out we were excellent candidates for refacing and gave us a price of $3750. That and donating the old doors to Habitat was the clincher. Reface and recycle!

 

Mrs. B. Thompson ~ Campbell River

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and my cupboards were showing their age. After hearing about cabinet refacing from my daughter I decided to give you a call. Your estimator quoted a price that was less than $3000 so I splurged and added rollout shelves and a spice rack. I love the new look and it's easier now to access my lower shelves and get things done.

When is it better to replace instead of reface?

The short answer is it's better to tear out and start over if your present cabinets are not able to support today's heavier doors or if the existing layout isn't very functional. Otherwise refacing is a cost-effective option.

How does the price compare?

Pricing is based upon the total square footage of doors, drawer fronts and side panels. A professional cabinet refacing project (Kitchen or bathroom) typically costs about half what it does to tear out and start over from scratch.
