Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few things we get asked from time to time.
Question: Do we need to remove everything from the cabinets before you start?
Answer: No, with the exception of cabinets with glass doors or open areas with shelves, bookcases, etc. We do paint the inside of these cabinets, so they will need to be empty when we start.
Question: Do we need to remove everything from the drawers.
Answer: No. We will remove the drawer fronts and take them to our studio for spraying. If the drawer fronts are not removable, we will paint them on site. NOTE: If you would like for us to paint the inside of the drawers at no additional charge, please have them empty on the day we start your project.
Question: How long will it take to complete the project?
Answer: While the time required to complete a project varies based on the size and scope of work, most cabinet refinishing projects are completed in 4-5 days.
Question: Can we use the kitchen while Colours is refinishing the cabinets?
Answer: Yes. Feel free to use the kitchen during the project. We just ask that you use a little extra care when handling the cabinets since the paint takes about 2-3 weeks to completely cure.
Question: What colors can we choose?
Answer: Any color you want! The options are limitless. We provide free samples to help you choose the best color for your home. This enables you to look at the color(s) during the day and at night. We want you to be thrilled with your “new” cabinets and choosing the right color is critical.
Question: Does Colours warranty their work?
Answer: Yes. We are pleased to offer our customers an exceptional five year written limited warranty. We guarantee the cabinets for five years against peeling, blistering or chipping as a result of improper workmanship or materials.
Question: What type of paint will be used to paint the cabinets?
Answer: We use only premium quality waterborne enamel cabinet paint. We also use a premium quality primer to prepare the surface for painting.
Question: Do you sand the cabinets, and will it make a mess in my house?
Answer: Yes, we will sand the cabinets to prepare the surface for priming and painting. We use a sanding/vacuum system with a HEPA filter to virtually eliminate any dust.
Question: Is a deposit needed?
Answer: Yes. We require a 50% deposit on the day we start your project. This enables us to purchase all the materials and supplies we need to do your project. The balance is due upon completion of the project.
Question: Can the knobs/pulls be changed?
Answer: Absolutely. Please have the new hardware on the day we begin the project. We will fill the holes and drill new ones as needed for the new hardware.
Question: Can my cabinets be modified to enhance the functionality and beauty of my kitchen?
Answer: Yes. We can help design and build the kitchen of your dreams without breaking the bank. We can modify select portions of your existing cabinets to create a perfect blend of style and function. We can replace doors and drawer fronts, add, remove or change existing molding, install light rail, install a pull-out trash can, convert an unused kitchen desk into a beautiful and functional space, install decorative bead board, add, remove or replace shelving, install new drawer boxes, extend cabinet height to ceiling to create more usable storage space, etc.…
