Each homeowner’s present and planned cabinetry aims are distinct, so we work side-by-side with owners to design a personalized cabinet refinishing plan for the Warrenville, IL area and surrounding communities such as Naperville, Winfield, Plainfield, Oswego, Montgomery, and West Chicago. The first step we take is to prepare the area to keep your floors, walls and any belongings out of the way of potential painting materials. We then remove grime or old paint and get the surface set for a new finish. Finally, finish your cabinets with paint in your chosen color or stain to accentuate the grain on your wooden cabinets.
Our process involves:
1. We lend a helping hand in helping you decide on color and paint type to create the look and feel that you are seeking. This design work can mean a great deal in achieving the final results.
2. We next look for repairs that may be needed to the drawer glides, door fit, hinges, shelves, toe kicks, and other parts that have seen wear and tear. Our craftsmen are adept at identifying the numerous problems and correcting them, using a full range of tools designed for woodworking and cabinetry.
3. Once all is working as it is designed to do, we can undertake the preparations for painting.
Application of the paint by sprayer is an excellent way to get a smooth and even finish which adds a degree of efficiency to the work in many cases. We favor air-assisted airless and airless spray equipment to apply the paint when a sprayed finish is called for. Thorough and complete masking and covering of the room is essential to undertake this work.
Alternately, many times a brushed application will yield a beautiful result, and many of the best cabinet makers in the business today employ this approach.
A brush-painted surface imparts a handcrafted appearance to woodwork, and also allows a thicker coat of paint to be laid down. Modern paints, even the waterborne ones are superior in their ability to level out before drying, leaving a slight hint of the brush, regarded as a hallmark of good craftsmanship.
The advantages of a brush-painted surface are several, beginning with the relatively simple preparations that are needed. Instead of spending time on extensive masking, covering, and protecting the floors and furnishings required for spraying paint, one can focus more on covering and protecting the immediate work areas. Covering the floor, masking the edges, and hardware removal are usually all that are needed to protect the room during this process.
Of course, all the surfaces being prepared are washed, sanded, and primed with the appropriate primers and undercoats; holes, gaps, and flaws are filled, and each coat is sanded, vacuumed, and tacked before moving on to the next step.
If you have cabinets made from open-grained wood such as oak, it is important to bear in mind that even with new paint, there will still be some of that grain apparent in the painted surface. This open grain is usually diminished somewhat as primer and paint coats are applied, sanded, and built up, but the grain will still be visible to some extent. If you desire to have a finished surface that is completely free of the open grain, this can be accomplished with the use of special fillers. Some additional time and cost are involved in doing this, but the results that can be achieved by filling wood and sanding smooth before painting are quite impressive, and can set the work apart from all others.
