Why You Should Repair Not Replace Your Cabinets

To repair or to replace? That’s typically the first question that comes to mind when dealing with surface damage. On the one hand, we know your goal is to fix the problem as quickly and efficiently as possible. But on the other hand, we know you’ve also got maintenance budgets to be mindful and considerate of. When it comes to handling damaged cabinetry, it’s always best to consider repairing them first. Here’s why. 

Finding An Exact Style Match: 

Cabinets go in and out of style just like anything else would. Think about the type of clothing you wore ten years ago. Chances are it’s probably not front and center at a department store anymore, right? Well, the same goes for your cabinetry. Cabinets are made in a limited batch with a specific style and finish. That means the longer your cabinets have been installed, the harder it will be to replace them with an exact match. Don’t spend valuable time hunting down a style that may no longer exist. Surface Experts can help repair the damage in as little as one hour while keeping your current cabinets intact. 

Repairing VS Replacing Cost:

If you’re unable to locate an exact match for the cabinets in your unit, your next best bet is finding something similar. However, keep in mind that this solution can require you to replace the cabinetry in its entirety to match the new style. By opting to repair instead, you can spend about 40-50% less than the cost to fully replace.  

What We Can Fix: 

The most common types of damage we see are fingernail scratches, marks along the edge of the cabinet where it opens, and worn or rough patches from water damage. Luckily, our team of experts can help repair all of it and remove dents, dings, chips in cabinetry for the next tenant to use.
