Acrylic Urethane Lacquer Finishes
The Information we require to quote ReSpraying Kitchens is listed below, this information should be emailed to:
You should supply pictures of the kitchen showing the layout, style and any damage that is existing to the finish or doors themselves. We do not rely on these pictures to accurately count the number of doors, drawer fronts and their style whether pantry, glass, solid or frame & panel. We use them to determine the style and if any crown molding, valance, or appliance boxes or gables are present. We do not quote based on square footage, we have pricing based on the style mentioned above. We require an accurate total number of doors if any are Pantry size, glass or other average doors similar in size, the exact size is not important beyond them being pantry or glass. We need the total number of drawer fronts that are utensil size up to 16", wider utensil or deeper pot & pan size. We do NOT take the entire drawer, we do the fronts only.
You should provide us with as much detail as you can regarding the current condition of the finish. Including any current runs, sags or blemishes in the finish. Quoting is based on the information you provide, repairs to current finish or wood blemishes/dings/dents/cracks or repairs of any nature are not included in the price unless specifically requested by you and quoted for. We would also like to know if you are looking for our DIY model (where we respray the removable items and we show you how to complete any box sides or exposed box trim) or whether you're looking for our team to complete all aspects of the job or whether you might like having us quote both options.
You should provide us with an accurate description of your intentions including the colour range (medium dark & dark colours incur additional charges), this helps us to inform you on what you can expect based on the colour range. Medium Dark & Dark colours are tinted in a clear base, they then require additional coats to build up a true solid colour, additional darker colour charges start at $300. Cracks or flaws in any items from manufacturing or subsequent damage from dings & dents to impressions made by handles or pulls that were over tightened are more visible when using white or off-white colours and we will discuss how if possible we can reduce or hide these conditions. Hole filling charges per hole are $2.50 & hole drilling charges are $1.50 per hole when required and quoted on in wrting as per our quotes. Minimum $50 charge for either service. WE do NOT spray "paints" we use an Acrylic Urethane Based Waterborne Lacquer that offers a higher moisture and chip resistance than paints. Lacquer's are the standard interior wood finish when Kitchen Cabinets are originally manufactured and offer a longer lasting finer, smoother finish than any paint can.
You should also provide us with Your City.

We are professional wood refinishers trained in several types of finishes, we specialize in Waterborne Acrylic Urethane lacquer finishes for interior wood & MDF products.
We understand the chemistry behind lacquer and how to get that long lasting, chip & moisture resistant bond needed in high moisture areas like kitchens, bathrooms & table tops. We offer up to a 2 year warranty on some wood surfaces, be assured we back up our spraying and complete the best job possible, we explain the entire process as well as care and cleaning for your items to maintain a long lasting vibrant finish.
We are however NOT able to apply lacquer over some finishes with results that will last and we don't want these people to waste their money so we turn down some quotes for these reasons.
