We Would Like To Introduce You To Our Cabinet Coatings Process

Our main goal when finishing a clients cabinets is to create an enduring layer of protection that looks like it just came off the assembly line at a cabinet factory. Or better, which  we honestly believe is the case. You see, there is no way a cabinet factory can use the products that we use. It would just cut into their  profit margins too much. That and the fact that each and every one of your cabinet doors is worked on by hand, ensures the best possible finish overall.

The decision to paint your own cabinets is a difficult one. It's easy enough to do, but you have to make sure that the job will be done right and won't show through in places. With Liberty Painting, you can trust that they'll take care of everything for you so it looks perfect when they're finished! Liberty Painting provides high quality workmanship on all their jobs!

The Process

1. Removing the Doors

We remove the cabinet doors because it is the best way to coat everything completely. We label each door and its corresponding place on the cabinet boxes.

3. Sanding The Doors

Next we sand each door with 100 grit sand paper, making sure to scuff up EVERY corner, crevice and edge. This is the foundation for a perfect bond between primer and surface.

5. Sanding Again

From here on out , we will sand everything between each coat of primer/finish coat. Using a finer sandpaper each time until we reach 220. This gives every coat the absolute best bond possible. And will leave our cabinets with that ultra smooth finish.

2. Cleaning the Cabinets

This step is often overlooked. But the years of kitchen atmosphere must be cleaned before ANY prep. We use a special cleaning solution, called Dawn Dish Soap.

4. Priming the Cabinets

The primer is just as important as the finish coat. We use Extreme Bond primer from Sherwin Williams. It creates a hard shell around the doors and boxes. (You cant even scratch the door with a thumbnail).

6. Finish Coat

After 2-3 coats of primer we apply 2-3 coats of 'Emerald Urethan Trim' paint by Sherwin Williams. It is the best for cabinets. It dries slowly, giving the paint optimal time to settle and 'smooth' out before it dries. We spray our finish coat using an airless spray rig and superfine finish tips. This is how we achieve the 'better than factory' finish.

Is it worth it to have kitchen cabinets professionally

If you’re like me, and have a kitchen that could use some sprucing up, the answer to this question might become more clear. Cabinets are one of the most important features in your kitchen because they set the tone for everything else. If you’re not happy with your cabinets and want to give them a fresh new look without having to replace them, then painting is what you need! Painting can be time consuming and difficult if done incorrectly but when done right it will make all the difference in your space – especially when paired with other upgrades such as replacing hardware or updating appliances. I’ve put together this blog post about how much paint costs (including different cabinet styles) along with what type of paint works best on each type of cabinet material

As a home owner it can be hard to decide what projects to tackle and when. One of the best pieces of advice we give our customers is that painting your kitchen cabinets is one task you really don’t want to take on yourself. Not only do you need the right tools, but it’s also difficult for homeowners without experience or training in painting techniques. You could end up wasting time and money with poor quality results if you don’t hire professionals. They know all there is about cabinet painting, and usually offer a written warranty.

Do you want to know how much a professional cabinet painter charges for their services? There are many factors that go into the price of cabinet painting. The best way to find out how much it will cost is to contact your local paint store and ask them for an estimate. They should be able to give you all the information you need, including what they charge, the materials needed, and any additional costs associated with this type of project.

Professional cabinet painters typically charge $80-$110 per linear foot for painting cabinets. This fee includes the cost of materials and labor, but not the cost of appliances or countertops. The average kitchen has about 18 linear feet of cabinetry that will need to be painted. If you have a large kitchen with 36 linear feet worth of cabinets, then expect to pay at least $1500 in paint costs alone!

But, when you compare the total cost to paint cabinets, to the cost of new cabinets, or to the cost of making a mistake when painting yourself, the cost is actually quite practical. Of course, we all put different values on our time.

My kitchen was only masked off for 2 days and I was back to using it full time. I dont know how they got everything done so quickly and with great results, I might add.
