"Ok let's start by the first phone call with Andriy, spoke to him about installing our ikea cabinets for our kitchen. His price was high so I started to negotiate for a lower price and, there was no way he would go down in price! Well later on I would find out why. So my wife and I decided to do it with him. So he asked us when do we need it done, and we said start within 2-3, he some how fit us in. Well so far we had a nightmare with our other project with other contractors who say they would show up and no call no show, but With him when he said he will be there at 8:30am him and his partner will be at your door at that time. So right away we felt relief that after a dark storm of contractors canceling appointments to no show, Andriy and his partner was a sunshine from the storm. Right away lay down fabric material to protect our wood from scratches, and super organized there tools to begin work. When I say super organized this guys has bolt sizes and stews in its department and so clean so what ever they needed it would be so easy to access. So as they begin they take there time to measure and configure to begin assembling. Not only what they put together is sturdy and strong, even ikea kitchen. So when they finnish for the day they clean up all the mess and put everything in order for the next day. So this was everyday till they finished the job. We felt so comfortable leaving them at our home with no worries when we are out running around. This guys are so professional and friendly. So now we realize why the price is the way it was. They are worth every penny! Like they say you get what you pay for., but in that said they are still affordable. We paid cheap for our other contractors and now we are living in nightmare with our other projects, we wish Andriy and his partner could have done our whole job and we would feel so relief. But they always say we specialize only in custom cabinet making and install, now We know why everything they did was amazing! Would you go to a restaurant that say everything kind of foods they specialize in! NO if you want good Italian you go to an Italian restaurant. Not a buffet place that has everything. Well with all that said this guys were amazing and wish more contractors would be like them, and we all know we can only wish that. Some tips for others who want to hire them. PAY THEIR PRICE ITS WORTH IT! and you will feel confident that the job will be done more than perfect. If any potential people interested in hiring the you can email me for info on my wife and I experience and pics of there job they did for us. Jacobmortera@me.com We call them batman & robin of custom kitchen and installation Thanks guys! For a job well done."

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.
