Thanks to our revolutionary cabinet refinishing service, U.S. homeowners are increasingly turning to N-Hance® to refinish kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Our unique process for refinishing cabinets offers the benefits of traditional refinishing, but without many of its biggest drawbacks.

Unfortunately, the revolutionary nature of our cabinet refinishing service can lead to misunderstandings and misconceptions. For example, some customers assume that our process involves wood dust and harsh fumes, which are common problems with other refinishers. Others believe that our unique refinishing system makes N-Hance more expensive, or that it’s the only type of service we offer.

To clear the air, let’s look at 5 of the most common misunderstandings about our cabinet refinishing service and dispel these misconceptions…

Common Misconceptions About Our Cabinet Refinishing Service

1. Sanding & Wood Dust

Misconception: Many people believe that we sand cabinets before refinishing them, which produces high volumes of messy, hazardous wood dust.

Reality: Our cabinet refinishing service involves zero sanding, which means zero wood dust!

With traditional refinishing, airborne wood dust can lead to respiratory irritation or even serious illness. It’s also a pain to clean. Many homeowners end up finding wood dust particles weeks or months later in corners and crevices around the kitchen.

Unlike traditional refinishing methods, the N-Hance process involves zero sanding. Instead, we use a special cleaning agent to remove dust, dirt, and grease, followed by a liquid abrasion treatment. This ensures strong adhesion between the new finish and the cabinet surfaces. By using this technique, we produce minimal wood dust.

2. Lingering Odors & Fumes

Misconception: Some customers assume that we use oil-based or solvent-based finishes, which are known for unpleasant odors and hazardous fumes.

Reality: Our cabinet refinishing service uses water-based finishes and Lightspeed® technology to ensure minimal lingering odors and fumes.

Many traditional refinishers still use solvent-based finishes, which contain high levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). When applied, these products emit toxic and foul-smelling fumes. Worse yet, these fumes can linger for days or weeks as the finish cures and off-gasses.

At N-Hance, we use water-based polyurethane finishes, which have minimal levels of VOCs. Even better, we instantly cure this finish using our Lightspeed® system, which means zero off-gassing. This way, you don’t need to worry about strange smells or hazardous fumes polluting the air in your home.

3. Finish Quality & Durability

Misconception: Some homeowners believe that without traditional methods and finishes, our service results in a lower quality finish.

Reality: The N-Hance process results in a like-new, factory-quality finish that can last for years to come.

Many of our customers love the idea of refinishing cabinets without any wood dust or chemical odors. But at the same time, they worry that our cabinet refinishing service might not achieve the same quality as traditional refinishing.

These worries are quickly dispelled when customers see a finished sample of our work. While our finishes produce fewer odors and fumes compared to traditional products, the results are equally, if not more, attractive. What’s more, our finishes have all been tested for wear-and-tear resistance, and with routine care and maintenance, they can last just as long as traditional finishes.

4. Cabinet Refinishing Costs

Misconception: Given the benefits of the N-Hance process, many people assume that our services cost more than traditional refinishing.

Reality: Refinishing cabinets with N-Hance costs roughly the same as hiring a traditional refinishing service.

Many homeowners choose a cabinet refinishing service because it’s a budget-friendly choice. Refinishing costs a fraction of what you’d spend refacing or replacing your cabinets, so it’s a great way to refresh the look of your kitchen on a budget.

5. Other Cabinet Services

Misconception: With our superb reputation for cabinet refinishing, some customers assume it’s the only cabinet service we offer.

Reality: Whether you’re looking to refinish your cabinets, change their color, or replace their doors, your local N-Hance has you covered.

Thanks to our unique refinishing process, many people think of N-Hance solely as a floor and cabinet refinishing service. But refinishing is only the start of our cabinet redecorating and remodeling services!

Our cabinet color shift and custom color finish services are perfect for anyone looking to recolor cabinets. Both of these services achieve the same factory-quality finish as our cabinet refinishing service. At the same time, we offer an extensive range of options for wood stains, cabinet colors, and finishing techniques.

If you’re looking to update the profile and style of your cabinets, N-Hance also offers a cabinet door replacement service. This service offers similar results to cabinet refacing. But unlike traditional refacing, you don’t need to cover up your existing cabinet boxes with veneers.
