great experience. they were able to get my basement done quickly and with excellent craftsmanship. Roy's team was very friendly and assisted in helping figure out ways to make a broken pull-out trash into a cabinet with unnoticeable hole fills. all work was completed in the time frame originally gave. basement looks great & the other odd end jobs are working nicely!

Darrell Arnold owner of Patch and Paint did a great job for us. My husband and I decided to remodel our kitchen and do a number of other miscellaneous upgrades in our home…and Darrell did it all!! First, when we decided to hire a professional to help us with the remodel, we posted a project description out on THUMBTACK, which is a service that brings together people who need work done with those who do the work, a way to connect by allowing skilled professionals to review a work project and if interested to make contact with you. We posted our project on a Friday evening, and within 30 minutes, Darrell contacted us and said he was qualified and very interested in working with us. He scheduled an appointment with us the following morning, to come to our home which allowed us an opportunity to discuss and show him what we needed done in our home, to include: transforming our kitchen cabinets from an oak stain to a cherry wood look, painting to include a lot of trim work, removing wallpaper, hanging lights, ceiling fans, mirrors, repairing drywall damage, hanging doors, installing new door knobs and fixtures throughout our home, etc. Within hours, Darrell contacted us to accept the job and to provide us with a Very Reasonable cost estimate. Not only was Darrell very skilled, he was willing to complete handyman type services around our home, as well. Additionally, Darrell had great recommendations on painting ideas, accent walls, etc. that I found very helpful. Darrell always let me know when he would arrive at our home and what to expect with our project. Another very valuable service the Darrell offered was to estimate how long the project timeframe would span and he stuck to that timeframe, even in light of other work that he had going on that he had been unaware of, at the time that he accepted our job. On a daily basis, Darrell would always leave our home clean, in fact, we would never have known he had been in our home, except to find the many improvements he made on a daily basis upon our return in the afternoons and evenings. He was absolutely fabulous to work with and was so responsive to our every need. We would highly recommend him to any individual or family to help with a home remodel, etc. We were so pleased with Darrell’s workmanship and only wish we had become acquainted with he and his company years ago. We now consider Darrell a friend to our family and in the future plan to invite him to return to our home to complete additional project work in both the interior and exterior of our home.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you refinish kitchen cabinets?

If you’re ready for a new look and feel in your kitchen but don’t want to replace the cabinet layout or your cabinet doors, refinishing your existing kitchen cabinets is a great option. To be a good candidate for cabinet refinishing, your cabinet boxes and doors need to be in good condition. Cabinet refinishing includes taking down your doors, sanding or stripping the surface, preparing the doors with primer as needed, refinishing them with as many coats of stain or paint are necessary, then re-hanging them in their original locations. If you’re not in love with your kitchen cabinet layout, talk to a designer or contractor about creating an alternative. Refinishing simply means adding new shine to the existing setup, so if you’re dying to have a pull-out pantry or maximize wall space by going flush to the ceiling, you may want a different approach. Functional and stylish ready-to-assemble (RTA) cabinets can be similar in cost to refacing your existing cabinets, so keep the budget-friendly RTA option in mind when making decisions.

Can you resurface laminate cabinets?

Resurfacing laminate cabinets is an affordable and relatively easy way to give an outdated kitchen a fresh new look. If your existing cabinets are in good shape and you like your current cabinet layout, putting a fresh face on your kitchen could mean simply painting over the current laminate or putting a new laminate surface on the doors and drawers. Cabinet resurfacing may be possible for the capable DIY homeowner, but if you don’t have the proper tools or the know-how, it’s wise to call a handyman or a cabinet installation specialist to ensure you have a professional-looking outcome. To make sure your kitchen is right for cabinet resurfacing (as opposed to completely replacing your cabinets), ask yourself:

  • Do I like the layout of my current cabinets?
  • Are the cabinet boxes structurally sound?
  • Are the floor and framing in good condition to keep cabinets supported over time?
  • Are the cabinets free of water or wood damage?

How do you resurface cabinets?

Resurfacing kitchen cabinets means that you retain your original cabinet boxes and existing cabinet layout and simply remove and replace the front layer of your cabinet doors. Cabinet resurfacing can also entail replacing damaged cabinet doors, keeping those that are in good shape, and installing a new surface on all of them. Cabinet resurfacing may also refer to a decision to completely change out cabinet doors because they are damaged or their style is out of date, but keeping the existing cabinet boxes and layout.

If you’re handy and have all the proper tools, cabinet resurfacing can be a DIY project, especially if you’re simply repainting. However, if you’re not comfortable removing and replacing your cabinet doors, doing precision measurements and cutting, or working with sanders and power tools, then this may be a project better left to the pros. You or your handyman or cabinet installation specialist will remove all cabinet door and drawer fronts and all hardware, then prepare the surfaces for a new layer. The pros should also update the veneer or laminate the frames to match. Once the new laminate, veneer or surface has been applied and new hardware installed, your cabinet doors and drawers are hung once more in their original locations. The national average cost for refacing cabinets is $5,000.

How much does it cost to refinish kitchen cabinets?

Cabinet refinishing revives dull or dinged-up doors and drawers. The cost of cabinet refinishing will vary based on factors such as the number of linear feet of cabinetry you have, the amount of nicks and scratches that need repair, the level of detail on your cabinets, and more. The pros typically will remove the cabinet doors and then sand or strip them down to create a beautifully smooth new surface. After prepping the surface with primer as needed, the pros may then repaint or stain the doors to give them a new lease on life. Cabinets with intricate detail or extensive surface damage will likely cost more to refinish, as they will take more time and effort. Keep in mind that you should only elect to do cabinet refinishing if the cabinet boxes are structurally sound and you plan to keep your current kitchen layout for a number of years. The investment will be wasted if the cabinet boxes are in disrepair and will need replacement soon, or if you’re planning a remodel in two years. The national average price range for cabinet refinishing is between $1,500 and $6,000.
