The Hub of the House …the kitchen

The truth is, that the kitchen is the gathering place and is the hub of the house. It’s where kids come for a snack when they come home from school. It’s the place where everyone congregates at parties, where the meals are made, secrets shared, late night drinks imbibed.

When there is so much activity in one place, it’s not unreasonable to think that it gets more wear.

The finish on your cabinets, even at the highest level, will start whispering to you that a new coat of paint might be in order.

You won’t have to redo the whole kitchen, but kitchen cabinet painting and refinishing will give you the sense that you have a brand-new kitchen.

The Hub of the House

Making It Look New

Giving your cabinets a new look means removing all cabinet doors and drawers and marking their locations. These are then carefully wrapped and transported them to the paint shop. This is a controlled environment containing a spray booth. Painting this way gives your cabinets a finish that looks brand, spanking new. During the period of spray painting, the surrounds will be painted by prior appointment s. This will be done in time for everything to be put back together. Once done, you’ll feel like you have an entirely new kitchen again and a new hub of the house.

Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing

Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing

The Heart of Your Home – Your Kitchen

Kitchens are now one of the first places chosen by homeowners for freshening up. It’s the first place to find the group at a party or after the game. New kitchens stay looking new for about 5-8 years. After that, they need a fresh coat of paint and often, the cabinets need the same. At John Neill Painting & Decorating, we take pride in the quality work we do in kitchen cabinet refinishing in the Philadelphia and surrounding area.

Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing and Painting

Even high-quality finishes start to show wear after the five- year mark. This is a good time to give your kitchen a new lease on life. A new color or simply refinishing the cabinets with a fresh coat of fine quality paint or stain can make your kitchen look brand new again.

The Process

Our carpenter removes the cabinet doors and drawers, carefully marking their locations. We wrap all the pieces and transport them to our paint shop, which is a controlled environment with a spray booth to give you the smoothest and most durable finish possible. Meanwhile, your daily life can continue with less disruption. Once the paint has cured, our painter and our carpenter will bring your doors and drawers back for reinstallation.

  • Do you have holes and cracks in need of repair?
  • Is the ceiling and trim in good shape or in need of repair?
  • What woodwork is included: windows, doors, radiators and closets to be painted?

  • Will the new color be significantly darker or lighter than the existing color?
  • What is your purpose in painting? A new look or restoration?

Critical Factors that Make Exterior Paint Last

Although it’s important to use the highest quality products in exterior house painting, as well as to possess the expertise to apply paint, by far the most important factor in an exterior paint job that will endure is thorough surface preparation.

Surface Preparation Is Essential

Surface preparation takes time, and it is the foundation upon which a high quality and durable paint job are built. Our process includes:

  • A thorough Pressure Cleaning to remove dirt and debris
  • Scraping, stripping and sanding as necessary for proper paint adhesion
  • Repairing and/or replacing damaged or rotted wood
  • Applying the appropriate primer
  • Caulking and filling all open joints
  • Applying the appropriate top quality exterior finish product for sound protection

You may wonder why painting prices vary. Eliminating steps in the preparation process may result in a less expensive paint job. However, it will also result in a less durable one. Spending a little more the first time, will mean having to repaint less often, which means greater savings in the long run.

Exterior House Painting Services Include:

  • Pressure cleaning of exterior surfaces, decks, and walkways
  • Paint or stain finishes
  • Problematic surface analysis – peeling, bubbling, efflorescence
  • Caulking, sealing, and repair of trouble areas
  • Rotted wood restoration and exotic wood finishes
  • Metal finishes, fences, and garages
  • Exterior carpentry
  • Shutter repair and installation
