When we removed this homeowner's cabinet, we discovered this mold.
This mold was unseen and would not have been found if this customer had chosen to reface her cabinets.
Leaks are very common and mold could be hiding behind your cabinets, under your cabinets or even behind your fridge.
When choosing to reface or replace your cabinets, there are things you need to know.
1) If mold is behind or under your cabinets, this mold will not go away with refacing.
2) Replacing your cabinets actually costs less than refacing.
3) Replacing your cabinets is not a project that takes very long. In most cases (average size kitchens), old cabinets can be torn out and replaced with new cabinets all within 1 day. Granite countertops also take 1 day to install, as well as tile (1 day to set, 1 day to grout).
Complete your kitchen with new cabinets, countertops and tile -- all within a few days!
