Preparation is our key to success.
Removal of Kitchen Cabinet Doors & Drawer Fronts:
■ Remove all doors, drawers and hardware using a low impact screwdriver
■ Place cabinet parts on a sound smooth soft surface
■ Remove all hinges
■ Label hinges & cabinet parts (for reinstallation purpose)
■ Carefully wrap cabinet parts
■ Safely transport to spray facility
Kitchen Cabinet Preparation
■ All cabinet surfaces are cleaned using a mild detergent/de-greaser cutting detergent with scrub pads and wash cloths.
■ Remove all grease, dirt and scaling by lifting and wiping items to clear and clean dry surfaces.
(80% of all paint failure is in improper preparation)
Cabinet Sanding Preparation Process
■ Prepare orbital pneumatic high speed sanders, down draft table, air pistol and hand sanding.
■ In most cases we start off with a 180-220 grit sanded paper.
■ Remove the old cabinet sealer, clear coatings and finishes.
■ Blow surface perfectly clean
■ Finish sanding with 320 grit sand paper leaving a smooth surface to adhere a primer/ filler coating.
■ Hardware Drilled Holes: holes are filled with wood dowels compressed into cabinet with glue
■ Finished with patching and sanding until smooth.
Repairing Crack & Splits
■ Filled using a paintable flexible caulking sealant material.
■ Deeper Cracks and Defects are filled with a flexible spackling vinyl compound
■ When repairs are cured areas are sanded smooth and blended in with cabinet surface profile.
Cabinet Wood Separating: in most cases we are able to re-glue using wood glue / fixative with cabinet clamps which compresses wood back together.
■ Apply Primer with a HVLP Spray System (high-volume-low pressure)
■ Achieve an even sprayed surface.
■ We use a two coat primer system.
■ First coat is applied which penetrates into the wood surface and lifts up all fine wood grains, sealing the cabinet wood achieving hard dry surface.
■ Sanding detailing surfaces and radius, using a 320-400 grit finishing sand paper
■ Leaves a high level pre-finish profile to adhere finish paints top coats.
Cabinet Finish Lacquer Paint: Coating
■ We use DeVilbiss Kremlin / Finish Line HVLP (high volume low pressure) spray system.
■ We use a two to three coat finish spray system and preparation in between coats
■ Leaves the final coat with a superior finish.
Finished Cabinet Installation
■ We transport and install finished kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts
■ Parts are wrapped which prevents scratching kitchen cabinet doors
■ Drawer fronts are installed using the original hardware hinges
■ Replace any mounting screws that were stripped or defective
■ Each part is installed, leveled, squared, straightened and secured
■ New Rubber or Felt Bumpers are placed on all doors and drawer fronts
Installing Hardware Handels, Pulls & Knobs
■ After cabinets are painted and installation is complete, we use a calibrated cabinet hardware jig (true position tool) to position for new handles & knobs
■ Safely drilling/machining accurately with consistency
We can match any color even off of a pillow or small swatch.
Any color can be selected from Sherman Williams, Benjamin Moore, Home Depot, Lowe’s or anywhere else where paint colors are sold. We can match it.
