Remodeling Magazine Cost vs Value Report.
Once again, the best performing Kitchen and Bath project was Minor Kitchen Remodel, which includes new appliances and countertops, and a facelift for existing cabinets. At $21,899 (average cost), it is not the least expensive K&B project, but it offers a lot of bang for the buck. The national average cost for refacing is from $7000 to $9000 for a 200 square foot kitchen with 30 lineal feet of cabinets. The average ROI (return on investment) in the greater Seattle area at resale averaged $104.3%.
We DO NOT Provide the Following Services:
Cabinet Repairs: Sorry. We are not set up to do repairs.
Cabinet Refinishing: This process can take up to 10 days if done properly.
The same process is used on site to refinish the cabinet boxes. There are harsh chemicals involved with this method. Reinstall hardware, doors and drawer fronts.
We do not paint cabinets. If you decide you want to paint the cabinets yourself or have them done professionally, we can do a REDOOR with Paint Grade Doors. We use a hardener in our process so that the doors are more durable. Several colors available. We also offer Rigid Thermofoil doors in solid colors if you are looking for a more affordable option. Just repainting the cabinets and doors will not add any value to your home and is considered, by most Realtors, as the band-aid approach to remodeling.
Cabinet Restoration/Reconditioning: This is a one day project.
1. Wipe cabinets clean.
2. Hand rub a matching stain color onto the wood. Doors, drawer fronts, moldings, hinges, and handles and knobs are not removed.
3. Spray 1 to 3 coats of clear varnish. Fans are set up by the exit door to suck out the residue. No masking or tarping is done for this quick fix. You can go with a darker stain color or have the cabinets whitewashed. This is a two day project. In this case, masking and tarping is done.
Cabinet Door Resurfacing: This is a 3 to 5 day project.
This process only works with euro-style flat doors with edge banded squared edges.
Complete Tear Out:
This is a completely new kitchen. The countertop is removed and all of the cabinets are replaced. A new countertop and backsplash are installed. If the footprint is different the floor will have to be replaced. The plumbing hookups may have to be modified, outlets may have to be moved, sheetrock may have to be repaired, etc. These projects take from two to six weeks, on average, to complete and the total cost can be up to 50% or more than refacing. The only time this makes sense is if you want to move a wall or move your sink location. You may need an engineer, architect and permits in some cases.
