Painting kitchen cabinets is one of our specialties. Most costumers when inquiring about kitchen cabinet painting ask, “will you be spray painting the cabinets?” “how long will the paint stay on” and “are there any roller marks or brush marks”.
Cabinet spray painting is one option for refinishing your kitchen cabinet doors and cabinets. This usually requires more work and effort and time. Of course this option is the most expensive option because of the extra costs incurred in the preparation of the cabinets and doors and the careful handling of the components ensuring that there will be no damages to the paint and surfaces. Of course this is the best option and the most expensive also taking the longest time from start to finish.
There are specially formulated paints specifically made for kitchen cabinets designed to endure constant contact and washing and wiping. There are two basic ways of spray painting kitchen cabinets and they are factory spray painting which is done in a controlled environment using special spray painting equipment under controlled situations. These spray painting lines are using expensive commercial/industrial equipment. When you get back a spray-painted item from one of these places it is packaged up carefully in packing and shipping papers and then carefully inserted into a cardboard container to protect. This guarantees you a perfect refinished kitchen cabinet door.
On the other hand the kitchen could be spray-painted on site. With this procedure though, great care has to be taken to protect everything and anything in or surrounding the kitchen. This means the whole kitchen has to be sealed off with plastic and tape. The doors have to be removed and spray-painted individually and manually and then set to dry in a remote spot. Following afterwards when the paint has dried (usually in around 24 hours for handling) the kitchen cabinet doors can be reinstalled. All the tapes and masking can now be removed from all your ceilings and walls.
Painting the kitchen cabinets and doors manually by hand with a roller and brush is the quickest and most inexpensive way of refinishing your kitchen cabinets and doors. 99% of the time this method is preferred. Most of the kitchen’s that we have done are made of oak or some kind of grainy wood in itself already has some type of texture. Other kinds of kitchen cabinet doors are very smooth, flat machined look. This is where a quality roller and brushes are
used and the type of equipment play an important role in the overall finish.
Our painting procedure leaves a nice beautiful flat smooth finish with no roller marks to talk about.
Using the manual procedure is the least costly and you get the most value for your dollar not to mention this method is the least complicated and time-consuming method.
