cabinet refacing utah county

If you’re looking to give your kitchen cabinets a fresh new look without the hefty price tag of a complete remodel, consider cabinet refacing. It’s an excellent alternative that can transform your kitchen at a fraction of the cost. However, when it comes to choosing a company for the refacing work, it’s crucial to be cautious and avoid those that utilize veneers. 

But what exactly are veneers? Veneers are thin sheets made from wood or melamine, a type of plastic called thermofoil. They are attached to particle board and applied to your cabinets.

Veneers for cabinet refacing have several drawbacks. One main issue is their lack of durability compared to other materials. Being thin coverings applied to the surface, they are prone to chipping and damage, particularly around edges and corners. This can detract from the kitchen’s overall appearance. 

Moreover, using veneers can lead to problems like chipping and water damage. Moisture easily seeps between the veneer and cabinet, resulting in warping and bubbles. These issues are challenging to fix and compromise both the look and longevity of the cabinets. 

Additionally, veneers often crack when exposed to various elements and temperatures, such as hot water or grease. This causes the veneers to expand differently from the underlying wood. 

Furthermore, even if surface damage isn’t visible, the particle board underneath can easily suffer damage. Particle board is made from cheap materials, like wood shavings, and is porous and prone to ripples, cracks, and sagging. Even when veneers are attached to plywood, moisture can still cause damage. While plywood may last longer than particle board, hardwood remains the superior choice and can last for decades.

Tempted by the affordable cost of veneers? Think again! When investing in your home, you want beautiful end results. However, veneers can deteriorate over time, particularly in busy homes with high foot-traffic kitchens. Although they may seem cheap initially, they can end up looking worse than your original cabinets.
