If you’re looking to rejuvenate your kitchen cabinets without the hefty price tag of a complete remodel, cabinet refacing services from N-Hance of Brevard County are an excellent alternative. Our unique refacing service, called cabinet door replacement, can give your kitchen a modernized appearance at a significantly lower cost than a full renovation. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to exercise caution when selecting a company to undertake a refacing project. Many companies use veneers during their refacing service. While the price may be enticing, veneers may not be the best choice for your kitchen.

Tempted by the Cost of Veneers?

When you’re investing in your home, you deserve a stunning outcome. Veneers tend to wear down over time, especially in high-traffic areas like a bustling kitchen with a busy family. While they may appear cost-effective at first, they can ultimately end up looking worse than your original cabinets.

N-Hance of Brevard County offers cabinet refacing in Palm Bay, and the surrounding areas, that prioritizes hardwood and crafts your cabinet doors and drawer fronts from scratch. As the saying goes, ‘You get what you pay for,’ and this rings true for cabinet refacing. Plus, you can still achieve significant savings compared to a complete replacement. 

Veneers Have Flaws

Using veneers for cabinet refacing comes with some notable drawbacks. They lack the durability of alternative materials due to their thin covering, making them susceptible to chipping and damage, especially along edges and corners. Veneers are thin layers crafted from wood or thermofoil, a type of plastic. Essentially, either the wood or plastic is affixed to the particle board and then applied to your cabinets.

This can result in an unsightly appearance, detracting from the overall aesthetic of your kitchen. Opting for the installation of new, custom cabinets made from hardwood ensures the robustness necessary for a kitchen’s demands. N-Hance of Brevard County’s cabinet refacing process is designed to withstand heavy kitchen usage while maintaining a high-quality finish. In addition, our technicians also provide cabinet storage solution options to help you stay on top of your cabinet organization.

Cracking and Moisture Concerns

Veneers can crack or chip when exposed to varying elements and temperatures, such as hot water or grease. This can lead to uneven expansion compared to the wood beneath. Even if surface damage is not immediately visible, the particle board underneath is susceptible to damage This is because particle board is constructed from inexpensive leftover materials, like wood shavings, and then bonded together.

The result? veneers are porous and prone to ripples, cracks, sagging, and more. Even if your cabinet veneers are attached to plywood, they can still be vulnerable to damage, particularly from moisture. While plywood may have a longer lifespan than particle board, hardwood ultimately surpasses both in longevity.
