Our Process and What You Should Expect

5280 Cabinet Coatings uses an non-intrusive kitchen cabinet coating (resurfacing) process that leaves your kitchen clean and remains usable throughout the week. We do NOT bring in spray equipment or use hazardous materials. All our materials are water based, low VOC products. It takes us 5 work days to completely change the look of your kitchen. We will spend 2-3 days in your home; depending on the size of your kitchen. The the remaining days is spent in our shop where we process each door by hand. The end result is a beautiful, updated/modern kitchen for the fraction of the cost of refacing or replacing your old kitchen and/or bathroom cabinets.

First Step, you select the color (millions to choose from because we use Benjamin Moore colors) and if you desire, a glaze to accent the doors. We’ll schedule a time that works with your schedule; from here we take care of the rest.

Before we arrive: Please clear off all counter tops and empty drawers or push all items back so we can get a drill gun inside the drawer to remove the front face. Please push items back from the front of each cabinet 2 inches from the front edge of the frames for all cabinets.

Day 1: Our coating specialist will be in your home the first day to remove the doors and drawers. We will spend 1-2 day coating the frames. We use a dustless method so all your items can remain in the shelves; please push everything back 2 inches from the front. Empty drawers and clear off all counters so we can complete the process in an easy and effective manner.  Please know, we “DO NOT” bring spray equipment into your home so there are no spray paint particles lingering in your home.

Day 2: If you have a large kitchen, we may need to spend a second day in your home. Otherwise we’ll be in the shop working on your doors.

Day 2-4:  At the shop…we examine each door for repair and coating. Each door is handled with care as we wash, hand sand, prime and apply 2 coats of our coating products. If you ordered glazed doors we will apply glaze and urethane to seal and protect each door. Our cabinet coating materials dries as hard as factory oven baked enamel…much like what you see and feel from high end new kitchen cabinet makers. The final surface is smooth, yet durable…letting you enjoy your kitchen for years to come.

Day 5: We return to your home and install all doors…your kitchen is now complete and the result is a modern/contemporary look. Our transformed kitchens and baths is great for resale or for you to enjoy for many years.

Benefit: You have beautiful updated kitchen that will increase the value of your home at a fraction of the cost of refacing or remodeling your kitchen. Call us for free estimate.

We are perfectionist and meticulous…it’s because we take pride in our product and what we do.
