Cabinet Refinishing and Painting - Why?
One of the best and most economical ways to update your home is through refinishing, painting, or adding cabinets to your home or office. Baltimore House Painting experts have the expertise to update your kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets, laundry room cabinets, and other cabinets throughout your home or business.
Floor and Countertop Protection
Our cabinet repair experts understand that a lot takes place during this project. That’s why we begin by covering the floor and countertops using canvas cloths since we can recycle them. Also, we removed all the doors and drawers of the cabinet and sealed the insides with tape to prevent dust from entering. Moreover, we ensure your appliances are well covered to keep them clean. For accuracy purposes, we number the doors and drawers that we remove so that it would be easier to fix them back.
Cleaning cabinets is the central part of the whole process that our experts at Baltimore Painting focus on. We start by scraping off any type of dirt from the cabinets, more so the food residues, by using steel wool, water, and dish soap to scrub it. Once the cabinets are dry, we sand them, but we are careful not to remove the finish. After sanding, we eliminate the dust using a brush.
Now that the surfaces of your cabinets are well prepared, it’s time to prime them. Priming is essential because it makes cabinet painting easier. We choose the best primer depending on the type of your cabinet’s surfaces. Any mistake in selecting primers will lead to an uneven fining or chipping of the cabinets. Also, we ensure our choice of primer is odorless, and therefore your family’s comfort won’t be sacrificed.
Once completed with the priming, it’s time for our painters to jump into action. We use a brush, sprayer, or roller to paint the cabinets. We apply the paint from top to bottom on the exterior parts of the cabinets. On the other hand, we use a mini-roller for a smooth surface to paint the interior. After painting the cabinets, we paint the drawers and doors and leave them for two hours to dry.
Putting The Pieces Back
The last step in cabinet refinishing comes after the final coat is completely dry; reassembling your cupboards and wardrobes involves installing the knobs and hinges and ensuring they are back in their original holes. Once done, we removed the covers and returned the items that we had taken outside for protection.
