McManus Cabinet Refacing Tallahassee

Update Your Kitchen Cabinets Without Removing Your Countertops



McManus Cabinet Refacing is a service of McManus Kitchen and Bath, a design/build remodeling company in Tallahassee, FL.  


How Long Do Cabinets Last?

Quality kitchen cabinets have a lifespan of about 15 to 20 years. Lower quality, builder grade cabinets, can wear out much quicker. Common issues are cabinet doors that don’t close well, noisy drawer slides and finishes that are dull and worn. Older kitchens also lack the custom organizers and lighting that are common in today’s homes.


Cabinet Refacing vs Cabinet Replacement


Traditional kitchen remodeling is an “all or nothing” process. Once your tear out the cabinets you also have to replace the countertops, plumbing, repair drywall, flooring etc… Not only is this expensive but it means living without your kitchen for 4 to 6 weeks.


Cabinet refacing can be a great alternative to cabinet replacement. It is not an “all or nothing” solution. You can update the look and function of your kitchen without replacing your countertops or removing your existing cabinets and fixtures.

When is Cabinet Refacing the Right Choice?


With cabinet refacing your current cabinets stay in place. We replace your doors and drawer fronts and cover the rest of your cabinets with custom panels and trims. There is no tear out and you can keep using your kitchen throughout the project.

Cabinet refacing is great when you like the current layout of your kitchen but need to update the look and function. Maybe your hinges and glides are worn out or the cabinet look dingy, cabinet refacing is a great solution.

Cabinet refacing is also less disruptive since your kitchen remains functional throughout the project. So if you have small children or other loved ones you care for and can’t imagine not having a kitchen for 6 weeks or more then refacing is a good option.


When is Cabinet Refacing Not the Best Choice?

If you need to dramatically change the layout of the your kitchen new cabinets are probably a better option. Also if you want to replace your flooring, countertops, lighting etc… as part of the reface you may want to also look at new cabinets. The cost could be similar since you are planning to demo the counters and do those other things.


What about the Cost?

If you look at just the material costs s custom cabinet reface costs about as entry level new cabinets. However new cabinets come with additional costs like demo, plumbing, new counters, tile etc… With cabinet refacing that is not the case. You can replace your counters and reface your kitchen, but you don’t have to.

Our average reface cost is around $15,000 – $18,000 for a mid sized kitchen in Tallahassee. Small kitchens can  cost as little as $10,000. We’ve refaced large kitchens for $40,000 and up when there are a lot of custom options added.
