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.

My husband and I recently hired Jeff to refinish a sideboard that we received as a gift. It was a great piece with a lot of character, but the color wasn't right for our space. Jeff came out and completed the entire project in one day, got the piece exactly the color we wanted it while maintaining its original look and character, and the price was extremely fair and ended up less than we expected! Can't ask for much better than that, and we couldn't be happier with the finished product! We already have plans to hire Jeff again for another project.

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.

Drew was one of the few people who responded to my request for an estimate over a holiday weekend. His verbal estimate was more than reasonable so I requested he make a personal visit to scope the job. I was shocked to discover that he was 150 miles away, yet was still willing to make the drive for only an estimate. The job requred he make a cabinet and install it. We agreed on a price and one week later, he came back to install. I was stunned and pleased with the quality of his work. He is obviously a perfectionist, which is what one wants in a cabinet maker who is to build a custom cabinet. The results were beyond my expectations, ansd the price more than reasonable, especially since he made two round trips of such a long distance. He definitely did not add the trip cost to his price. I'd hire him again in a minute!

Ryan and his son did a good job cleaning out the gutters. He also have me a quote on gutter guards knowing I wouldn't be able to buy them right away. The only downer was he couldn't give me the name of the gutter guards for me to investigate them on the net.

I had some built ins installed and I picked him because of his experience and his price cant be beat. I had several quotes emailed to me and his was the most affordable. He did a good job installing the cabinets on his own. Overall I was pleased with the outcome and it did not break the bank. Very reasonably priced labor cost and meticulous with his work.

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!

Wanting to "paint" your cabinets? Jerry and his Wallscapes team are known for thier incredible attention to detail. Most importantly, they do not use paint! They Laquer with the "appearance" of paint. So so smart! Be very careful if you are hiring someone to "paint" your cabinets. Regular painting "chips" at year two. Laquer is a innovative approach! Jerry and team can provide this level of excellence! Highly recommend!

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.
