Why you should hire a professional cabinet refinishing company
Your cabinets play a major role in your kitchen. Not only are they functional, providing storage for your dishes, appliances and food, they also contribute to your kitchen’s aesthetics and style. If your cabinet boxes are in good shape and you like the lay out of the kitchen, then cabinet painting is an option for your kitchen remodel.
Cabinet refinishing, or cabinet painting, is a common DIY job, but it is not a job that DIYers do commonly well. You can watch hours of YouTube instructional videos, but that doesn’t replace the skill and expertise that comes with years of practical experience. If you’re considering cabinet refinishing, here are reasons why you should hire a professional that offers cabinet painting in Calgary.
It will save time.
If you want to do the job right, you’ll need the time to do it. Properly preparing and painting kitchen cabinets can take two or three whole weekends. That leaves you without a kitchen for weeks. It’s time consuming because it requires stripping of the old finish, sanding, priming and painting. When you hire a professional, they come with a team of experienced painters and will work while you’re at your day-job. It will be done in a fraction of the time and you won’t have to worry about missing out on weekend relaxing.
They have the proper equipment.
Just like any home improvement job, you’ll have to have the proper tools and supplies to get the job done well. For this job you’ll need a variety of sandpaper with different grits, brushes, rollers, trays and drop cloths and you’ll have to know how to use them. Professional painters arrive on site with everything they need to get the job done. Plus, they take care of laying drop clothes and cleaning up afterwards.
They have years of experience.
Practice makes perfect. If you’re learning as you go, with very little practice, your cabinet refinishing job will not be perfect. When you leave it to the pros, it will be. They have a skilled hand and a trained eye, paying close attention to detail. Amateur paintjobs often have noticeable brush strokes, blotches and roller marks. You don’t want to see these imperfects every time you’re in the kitchen. It’s best to leave it to a professional painting company.
They can help you choose the right finish.
Most painting companies will offer a design service or a colour consultation. This will help you choose a finish that will match the current style of your kitchen and home and best suit your personal taste. Not only will consulting with a professional ease some of the stress of choosing the right colour, it will also ensure you love the results, so you won’t have to do it all over again.
