QUESTIONS ABOUT CABINET PAINTING VANCOUVER & BEYOND.
( the short and long answer to all your questions about kitchen cabinet painting)
Question #1) What specifically do you do when you paint (or refinish) my kitchen cabinets anyway?
1) Whether we’re cabinet painting Vancouver, cabinet painting North Vancouver or cabinet painting Richmond the process is the same. We up and label everything then take down your doors and drawers. We bag all your handles and knobs and tuck them away in one of your cupboards. Then we leave
2) When we show up to paint the “on-site fixed pieces” a couple weeks later we clean, fill where required..tape..sand…tack cloth then prime all cabinetry. Sand again and prime again.
3) Next is 2-3 coats of industrial pre-catalyzed epoxy to all surfaces.
4) We then install the doors and drawers that were prepped and sprayed at our spray shop prior to the painting of the fixed pieces.
5) The transformation is complete. Enjoy!
THE AVERAGE TYPE OF HIGH QUALITY KITCHEN CABINET REFINISHING JOB:
1) oak cabinets
2) maple cabinets
3) laminate cabinets
Lets assume, for the moment, that we’re doing what we do on a lot of our cabinet refinishing projects: which is to paint those faded oak, maple, laminate, thermofoil (or whatever type of kitchen cabinets yo have.) And to be fair, a lot of the kitchen cabinets we paint are, in fact, not in bad shape at all, nor are they even faded. Furthermore, here at Cabinet Painting Vancouver there are no shortage of cabinet painting jobs we do where the cabinets are in what we can accurately describe as “new condition”. In these cases its simply time to try a new colour. After all, it’s looking pretty dark over there isn’t it?
For those who are thinking of going to a darker colour from you present light one that’s cool too. Only YOU know what mood you want to create in your own kitchen.
Now, for starters, we don’t just “throw a coat of paint on them”. The process of painting your cabinetry is a lot more involved than that. It’s extremely detailed work. Right up there with brain surgery and rocket science. Not quite…but close. ;> Don’t believe me?..then read on and decide for yourself when you see exactly what’s involved in delivering a high quality kitchen cabinet refinishing job.
“SHOULD I TAKE DOWN MY KITCHEN CABINETS MYSELF?”
Don’t concern yourself with taking down any cabinets or putting them back. There are one million other things you would rather be doing. At Cabinet Painting Vancouver we take pleasure in the entire process. That’s why you hired us to paint your kitchen cabinets. And part of the process of painting them involves taking them down, taking them to our shop, painting them there and then bringing them back and installing them.
“I’M ON A TIGHT BUDGET SO I WOULD LIKE TO REMOVE AND REPLACE EVERYTHING AND SAVE A FEW HUNDRED BUCKS. CAN I?”
Now, if you *insist* on saving a bit of money and want us to knock some off the over-all price then feel free to discuss with us how much you can save by removing all the doors, drawer hinges and knobs and replacing them yourselves. For 95% of our customers we remove and replace everything with 5% doing themselves. Whatevers clever. Again, most of our customers have one million other things they would rather be doing than removing and replacing cabinets. Not to mention the fact that if they’re not labelled properly and you try to put a drawer back on in what you believe to be the right spot (but it’s not…AND it’s upside down but you can’t tell) then you will spend an hour playing around with it and maybe not ever figure of the riddle. Sound like I’m speaking from the point of view with having first-hand knowledge? Yipper skipper. So ya, there’s a major learning curve. But if you feel so inclined to save a few hundred bucks then dig in my friend.
“WHAT ARE SOME WAYS THAT YOU GIVE ME PEACE-OF-MIND?”
Excellent question. We will show up and do the uninstall but before we start taking anything down we will do a couple of things to give both you and us some peace-of-mind.
1) We will open and close and examine all your cabinets (both doors and drawers) to see how easily they in fact open and close.
Some cupboards are less than perfect so we takes notes, pictures and videos to record whatever the issue is with any particular kitchen cabinet or bath cabinets door or drawer. This is a very important step as sometimes you don’t notice a pre-existing condition until AFTER we do the work and then do the install and then things stand out a bit more and get noticed for the first time even though it’s pre-existing.
“WHAT’S A PRE-EXISTING QUESTION” you ask? Good question. Here are a few examples:
We open one of your cupboard doors above your fridge and it doesn’t open all the way but instead rubs against the top of the fridge.
The ‘lazy susan’ that hangs in a lopsided fashion due to weakened hinge placement over the years and no amount of playing around and adjusting the hinges will make it hang in a perfectly aligned fashion
The drawers around your sink are in extra bad shape and are warped or bulbous in nature due to water settling on it over the years and making the surface swell. We do a lot of extra work to make these particular drawers or doors look as best as possible. That amounts to twice as much primer and epoxy paint than usual. Question; Will they look perfect? No, only buying new will make them perfect but we can get them up to an 8/10 versus their current state of 3/10.
2) We look around our work area to see if there is any damage that stands out that was caused my anyone in the past. We will also take pictures and video, where required, to help assist you in any way.
The following is an actual, verbatim, conversation we have had.
Customer: “You scratched my floor Rick”.
Rick: “umm…not so much. (holding up cell phone) Here’s the video I took of the pre-existing scratch that I noticed at the 10 second mark of me being on your property. It’s the same video that I also emailed to you, text you about and spoke to you in person about”
Customer: “Oh, THAT scratch..right..thanks…I’ve been juggling a lot of things lately with this reno..sorry. Must have been the counter-top guys or the electricians”
Rick: “Usually is Mrs. Jones…usually is”
Now comes the labeling. At Cabinet Painting Vancouver we don’t want to be guessing where things go at the end so we are very methodical by clearly labeling where everything goes. That involves putting some painters tape on the inside of the cabinet boxes…labeled “#1″….”#2” etc..while we simultaneously tape and label the cabinet doors associated with those areas as “#1″….#2”..etc. until all the kitchen cabinet doors have been removed. When the cupboard doors have all been labeled we then move onto the removal of the cabinet drawers. Same process as above only this time we label all the drawers with a letter instead of a number. We also make sure we keep track of what side of the drawer is up and which is down. Things can get a bit trick if we try to install one and it’s upside down because even though we will in fact be able to affix it it will look askew due to being slightly off. Centimetres matter. And those faux drawers you have under the sink…if we can get to them we will take those off as well. Sometimes they simply don’t come off or they do come off but we can’t access the screws due to the shell of the sink being in the way. Our goal though is to remove them if we can.
OFFICIAL COUNT OF YOUR KITCHEN AND BATHROOM CABINET DOORS AND DRAWERS
Once we get everything off we do an “official count” to make sure we have the same number of cabinet doors and drawers you said you had when we first contacted you via email and were asked of the “total number of doors and drawers”. If there are less pieces then we will tell you what rebate you have coming and if there are more pieces than you had originally thought then we will let you know the extra charge so that we don’t leave your property with your items and THEN tell you about the extra charges. This quite obviously is the fairest manner in which to conduct business. At least we at Cabinet Painting Vancouver believe
Can you believe how much detail and work is involved in doing high quality cabinet refinishing and we haven’t even taken your cabinet doors and drawers out of your kitchen and to the spray shop yet!
One other nice touch we do is that when we take down, or rather, uninstall your cabinets we have to lean them up against your walls before taking them out to our truck or van. We don’t rest them right against your walls as we don’t want to scratch any of your existing painted walls. By placing a small piece of foam between the cabinet and the wall we protect the wall from any damage. That foam you see is the very same foam we use to wrap and protect the doors and drawers after they are dried and cured. But more about that later.
DO YOU TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES AT THE DOOR?
We sure do. We take off our “street ware” and put on our DEDICATED INDOOR SHOES. These are shoes that have never been outside, ever. They are 100% dedicated to being inside a customers house. Nice touch, right?
WE MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO OUTSTANDING ISSUES
Prior to leaving we will make sure that there are no outstanding issues. We don’t want to take your cabinetry off your property only to discover down the road when we’re painting the ‘on-site fixed pieces’ that we didn’t discuss a particular aspect of the job. Such as:
DO YOU PAINT BEHIND THE FRIDGE AND DISHWASHER?
Never the dishwasher and sometimes behind the fridge. With the fridge it depends on how much of the side panels you can see and to what degree it stands out and bothers you. Most often it’s “out of site, out of mind”. If you would like us to paint behind the fridge then please be prepared to move the fridge in and out yourself as we don’t want to take any risks and maybe damage your floor. Those rolling wheels that the fridge sits on can sometimes leave marks when you least expect it.
DO YOU PAINT MY WINE RACK?
Wine racks are excluded from all initial quotes and the price to paint them, if you want them done, is dependent on the difficulty of doing so.
WERE THERE EXTRA PIECES AND WERE YOU TOLD ABOUT IT THEN AGREED TO THE INCREASE IN PRICE?
We make sure we have an exact count of the number of doors, drawers and shelves. If there are more than you said there were in your initial email we will let you know what the extra charge is.
ARE THERE ANY PARKING CONSIDERATIONS WE SHOULD BE AWARE OF?
WILL THERE BE OTHER TRADES PRESENT WHILE WE ARE WORKING THERE?
WHAT ABOUT INSIDE THE CABINETS?
DO YOU PAINT THE EDGES OF THE CABINET?
Question #2) Do I need to empty my kitchen cupboards and drawers before you arrive?
No you don’t. We won’t be painting actually inside your cabinets except maybe behind a glass door or two where you can see the old colour. Don’t worry, we won’t be getting any dust or paint on any of your personal or foot items. Once in a while we are not able to take the cabinet drawer face off without doing damage to the drawer so in that rare instance we would take the entire drawer with us at which point you would have to empty the entire contents of all your drawers and put all the contents back yourself when the job is complete. The goal is always the same…to remove the drawer face only and take that with us and leave you the rest. For a new kitchen this is not difficult but with older style kitchens where they simply glued the face cover onto the the drawer box then we have no other choice but to take the entire drawer with us as prying off the face would cause way too much damage.
What kind of primer, paint or lacquer do you use when you refinish my kitchen cabinets?
How much is this going to cost me and what exactly am I paying for?
What about melamine, is that any good for cabinets?
How do you arrive at a price for painting our cabinets? Does someone need to come and take a look?
We have been spraying kitchen cabinets for 29 yrs now so there is really nothing for us to see that we haven’t already seen…so no, no one typically has to come take a look. We just need to know the total number of doors and drawers and what type of wood or laminate you presently have. Then it becomes a simple math equation. A couple factors that can affect our basic formula is if there is a tricky wine rack since we don’t include that in the price. We also don’t incude painting inside any cabinets so if you have glass insets in a couple of your cabinet doors you might have to have behind the glass / inside the cabinets done for that area if you’re going from a darker colour to a lighter colour.
Our kitchen cabinets are Oak and my daughters kitchen is laminate. We have approximately the same number of pieces. Will the cost be the same for the both of us?
Assuming for the moment that you both have the identical number of pieces, then no, the price would not be the same. Spraying over laminate is cheaper than spraying over a wooden cabinet since there are fewer coats of lacquer that need to be applied. Spraying laminate is a three coat system (one prime, two finish) whereas spraying maple and all other wood excluding oak, is a four coat system, and spraying oak is a five coat system. (three prime, two finish).
Whats the big deal with Oak; what is it exactly that causes the price to be higher than for cabinets made from different materials?
I have 48 pieces of oak cabinets in my kitchen. How do you arrive at a price for that? How do I book a job?
- Number of pieces multiplied by our price per piece.
- On-site painting of fixed pieces.
- Removing and replacing of hinges and knobs.
- Cost of materials.

How long will we be without our doors and drawers and what exactly do you do at your shop with them?
I'm pretty handy with a drill. Can I remove the replace the doors and drawers and take the hinges and knobs off myself?
‘BUT RICK, I REALLY WANT TO JUST DO THE UNINSTALL ONLY”
Actually you can provided we still get paid in full (typically $400’ish) that we charged for both the uninstall and install. In other words, you just did an uninstall and got paid nothing for it. So if you **LOVE** helping out and want to be part of the process you can but in this particular case you won’t get paid for it. Your ‘street cred’ goes up though. ;>
I use to be a College Pro Painter. I can probably do the on site painting myself as well. Can you set me up?
We are trying to take the fronts off the drawers that are glued with screws. Do you normally rip them off or can you paint around the drawers?
We are painting the kitchen walls as well. Should we paint the walls before or after you paint the cupboards?
Do we wash the doors and frames before you guys arrive.
I’m a bit concerned about the smelly primer. Not only do we have a toddler but I am pregnant, so it won’t be so good for me/baby either.
What's your policy on deposits and are they refundable?
and beyond for years now and are exceedingly fair when it comes to handling your money. Deposits are 100% refundable if there are less than 5 emails we had to respond to. Anything between 5-10 is 50% refundable and if we responded 10 times or more during the course of the planning of your project then there is no refund whatsoever.

Cabinet Painting Vancouver in the Seaside part of town.
Seaside Greenway is a world famous bike route found in Vancouver. When people are walking on a dedicated bike path safe from cars they are not thinking about their beautiful surrounding typically.

Odd isn’t is that they pay the most money per square foot in all of Canada and their kitchen cabinets look like an IKEA experiment from the 80’s gone wrong? the modern, grass-roofed Vancouver Convention Centre. The paved Seawall walking and cycling path follows the shore to forested Stanley Park, where the Vancouver Aquarium is home to tropical fish and penguins who most assuredly don’t give a flying you know what about cabinet painters near them.
Cabinet painting Vancouver in Stanley Park. What; surely you jest?
Hi, My name is Joanne and this is my story about how I discovered some kitchen cabinet spray painters near me. I was in Stanley Park and as usual the beauty of the park left me speechless. I caught a bus to the park and it started to pour as soon as I got off the bus. I had an umbrella and walked through the park to the Aquarium. Even in the rain it was breathtaking. I plan to spend as much time there, walking the trails (never felt nervous or unsafe), strolling along the seawall, viewing the city skyline, etc. Will always return to Stanley Park every time I get a chance. While strolling along the seawall looking out at the mountains I felt so good about life that I figured it was time to get my kitchen cabinets painted so I reached into my pocket and grabbed my phone and searched: “kitchen cabinet painters near me” I checked out a few of the results and was not impressed so I tried a different search this time with “best kitchen cabinet painters near me”. I didn’t want just average kitchen cabinet painters, I wanted the BEST! As luck would have I saw Vancouver Kitchen Cabinet Painting and checked out there website and found out they company was a husband and wife team so I decided to call them. If it wasn’t for that walk around the Stanley Park Seawall I doubt I would have gotten around to searching for the best kitchen cabinet painters near me.

A good poem on nature slows us down. It reminds us of the dirt we walk on, the trees we pass by, the birds overhead, the hands that have tilled and planted, the survival of seeds—of animals, of humans.
