Resurrect Wood Refinishing refinishes cabinets instead of painting them. Since it is common for these terms to get mixed up, this article assumes the word “painting” refers to changing cabinets to a solid color. The refinishing process is similar to painting. We encourage you to check out our other articles to understand the difference between painting and refinishing and why our technique is higher quality. Otherwise, we are someone who can paint your cabinets! Please submit an estimate request through our website or give us a call at (407) 744-3568.
Should I paint my cabinets or hire?
If you decide to paint your cabinets by yourself, it is strongly advised that you are already experienced in painting cabinets. Painting cabinets properly requires experience, and your kitchen cabinets may not be the best candidate for your first time at the brush.
Is it better to spray or brush paint cabinets?
Speaking of brushes, it is much better to spray your kitchen cabinets than to brush them. While the equipment is much more expensive than a $3 paint brush, a spray gun is the only tool guaranteed to accomplish a clean, sharp, professional finish. Don’t be fooled, just because you have a rental spray gun unit does not mean you will have fresh-looking cabinets. There is a high risk to spraying cabinets if the user is not experienced. Instead of getting brush strokes in your finish, you may need to know how to fix fish eying, orange peeling, debris, hair, or any other number of things that can happen without proper airflow and ventilation.
What paint is best for kitchen cabinets?
Paint should never be used for kitchen cabinets, only refinishing products. We have been seeing some trends swinging back to lacquer-based paint because it is cheaper. Lacquer-based paint is not a superior method to refinishing products. They can be heavily glossy, toxic, and odorous, sometimes needing days to gas off, and simply don’t have the durability to avoid chipping or peeling like a refinishing product.
Do you have to sand cabinets before painting?
Sanding cabinets is only required if the cabinets have been painted before. The great difference between painting and refinishing is that sanding is not necessary. Our company only cleans and scrubs the surface with a 3M pad, since the product we use is compatible with the original factory finish.
