Mr. Evans installed a few can lights and added a chandelier to our dining room. He was great from start to finish. He was able to come 2 days after we spoke and completed the work in just a number of hours. He cleaned up after himself very well and was pretty quiet considering all the work he was doing. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. In fact we are going to have him come back to install under cabinet lights in our kitchen.

I needed to have the floor of my kitchen sink cabinet replaced. In addition the clamps that held the sink in place were missing which caused the sink to fall, which caused the pipes to leak water.

Jeff replaced the crown molding in our den and did a beautiful job. He also trimmed in all around our fireplace and turned an old built-in desk into a cabinet area for us. Even though we thought of new things to do many times, Jeff completed everything beautifully. We highly recommend him!

Working with Mark was a pleasure. He is dependable, competent and trustworthy. He helped me bring a 1940's house back to life, after years and years of neglect. Though it was in a sad state of disrepair, he assured me that he could transform it into something that I would feel proud of. Mark has a wide range of skills, he is a true "jack of all trades", so his depth of knowledge on a project of this scope was crucial. He started by removing 12 feet of thick bamboo growth from the back yard, then pressure washed and painted the exterior of the house. He rebuilt the existing windows, which was a very tedious and time-consuming task,and a lost art to boot. In addition, he installed guard rails around a creek on the property, to help decrease my liability as a landlord. He then moved inside the house and painted the walls, installed new vinyl flooring, sanded and refinished the original hard wood floors (they're beautiful!), installed a new bathroom cabinet, faucet and other hardware, replaced several light fixtures, installed new door locks, and new storm doors. Mark works independently and takes pride in his workmanship, so it's important to be considerate of his pace. Since he does not specialize in any one area, it naturally takes longer to organize the necessary equipment and tools than if he were subcontracting various jobs to specialist. Finally, Mark is an excellent communicator, and kept me well-informed of any set backs along the way. He has also worked with me to correct problems that neither of us noticed until the project was completed. Knowing that he stands behind his work is of particular importance, because it's hard to catch everything, even after a "final" inspection. If you are looking for someone who is knowledgeable, personable, trustworthy and fair, look no further, Mark is your man!

Todd did an amazing job on our kitchen. What started as a small job (needing a window frame replaced and the window reset) turned into Todd refacing all of our cabinets, doing a custom backsplash above our sink, and creating and installing a custom wide transition piece for our floor. Todd also replaced water damaged parts of our cabinets and fixed other assorted pre-existing problems we encountered along the way. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars!! We love our kitchen and we love everything Todd did!

    At first, I was very hesitant to work with a kitchen designer - I think I was afraid to hand over the keys to someone else. Ellen Brotzman was a lifesaver. When I first contacted her, I got so nervous it was over a year before I contacted her again, but she was always the consummate professional. She worked with me with the floorplan constraints I have and came up with a really novel and effective use of my space. We went back and forth on the design, and since I am a busy professional in Raleigh and she is in Cary, we were able to effectively work out the details with emailing back and forth. I bought custom cherry cabinetry from Ellen, so there was no additional design services fee. She was willing to work with any contractor, but I ended up taking one of her referrals and I could not have been more pleased. Ellen even checked on the progress during an extended vacation I took during the construction - and she caught a construction problem early so we were able to resolve it over the phone instead of coming home to a disappointmnent The result - a truly "wow" kitchen. Somehow within the confines of my less-than-spacious first floor footprint, I now have a bigger house. My kitchenaid mixer now pops out of its own cabinet. I have a very deep cabinet alongside the fridge that holds a ton. I have a "baking area" and a "serving area", even a "drinks area"! Almost a year later (yes, I am bad about getting to writing up reviews), I am still awed by how beautiful and functional my kitchen is. I have had people actually tell me this is the most beautiful kitchen cabinetry they have seen before! I would heartily recommend Ellen Brotzman and her kitchen redesign services. I felt she led me toward good choices, but she also kept "my style" in mind and helped me select not only cabinets but also tiles, a sink, etc. that worked together. She got as excited as I did when we found "just the right sink" on a bargain sale! My fears of having someone else "take over" the project were unfounded - Ellen applied her talents and made an effective partner with me in designing a kitchen I would love, and I am thrilled with the result! I am told also that her services and the cabinets were at a bargain price compared to the same quality elsewhere!

      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.

      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.

      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 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.
