Because our home was built in 1959 we had sturdy 3/4" plywood cabinets and didn't want to change the footprint, but the site-built wood left a lot to be desired. We always wanted hickory, but couldn't justify the cost of a complete tear-out remodel in our neighborhood. We studied up on refacing and received three bids. Rick came out to see us armed with samples, references, a book of before/after photos, and a lot of great ideas. We met with two other contractors after Rick. Neither of the other contractors had samples with them, or even photos. When we mentioned that there were some modifications we'd like made to existing cabinets the other contractors didn't think it could be done. Rick took one look at the area and not only said it could be done, but then offered his own ideas to make it even better! When it came down to pricing, we were almost worried that Rick would be more expensive, but not only was his price the most competitive, he seemed the most knowledgeable and the most prepared overall. Rick was on time every day and was respectful of our home and our dogs. I work from home and was able to chat with Rick on my breaks and lunches, and it was fun to watch the process.
The transformation was amazing. We had granite countertops installed while our cabinets were being refaced, and Rick was able to help us remove the old countertop and prepare the new cabinetry he was building for the countertops as well. The quality of the work is beyond our hopes. We had a plumbing issue with our new faucet/sink setup and had to have a plumber out right after Rick finished. When the plumber was under the sink he saw that it wasn't the same wood as outside and asked. We told him they had just been refaced. He was very impressed with the quality of the work, kept running his hands over the corners, telling us that he works on houses on Mercer Island that don't have cabinets that look as high end as ours do! All in all Rick went above and beyond. He didn't just reface our existing cabinets, he demo'd an old overhanging cabinet that obscured the view to the dining room and built us a new wall cabinet, and built us a new buffet cabinet under our garden window for extra storage and counter space. We couldn't be happier, and will definitely use Rick again and recommend him to anyone who asks.. in fact, the plumber has his number now too. :-)

I’m pleased with the quality of the installation of our re-facing of our kitchen cabinets. Rick and Wayne were both pleasant and easy to work with.
I would like to thank you for the beautiful work you did on my cabinets. I love them. Thank you so much Kitchen and Bath Medics.
The estimate was well written with all the details and spelled out. He has several selections to choose from for cabinet refacing. I chose white with shaker style front. Measurements were taken for the drawers and cabinet fronts. The materials were then ordered. It took almost two weeks for them to arrive. All of the kitchen cabinets needed to be emptied by owner before the process. All of the framing was sanded where the new material was to go. The new material was applied with glue, low voc water based. He installed the new laminate countertop , trim and installed the new sink. There is a little dust with the sanding and cutting, the weather was nice and a lot of the work was done outdoors. Overall it took about one week , with a few tweeks , which he was happy to fix. I really love my new kitchen, it looks great and I am very happy. He and the laminate guy, Joe, did an excellent job.

They were wonderful, from the first initial visit to the end. We had some other companies come in for bids and were really thinking of not remodeling our kitchen and "living" with it after some bad bidding experiences. Rick and his team came in and gave us a wonderful bid and explained all our options in great detail. The order came in on time and his team worked hard to get the kitchen done within a week. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to remodel their kitchen or bath.

We just got our cabinet refacing done, and Rick and Wayne from Kitchen and Bath Medics did the work for us. These two men were the most professional and pleasant to ever do work in our house. They were efficient, knowledgeable, and paid attention to detail. These two men took pride in their job. We love our new kitchen, and thanks to Rick and Wayne, they made the whole thing possible and enjoyable.
I was very pleased with Rick’s work. He was very informative and gave a
“real-time” estimate of how long the work would take. I will share this information with anyone looking for cabinet refacing.
