Mill Creek Painters' Cabinet Refinishing System

The Best Way to Modernize Cabinets

If you’re tired of the way your kitchen cabinets look, you don’t have to pay to have a new kitchen installed. You can save money and give your kitchen a facelift by having your cabinets refinished. Mill Creek Painters' Cabinet Refinishing System is one of the most trusted cabinet services in Alberta. All cabinets are taken off-site for a more controlled refinishing. The time it takes to refinish cabinets will depend on how many you have. Typically, it takes anywhere between a couple of days to one week. You won’t be able to use your kitchen during this time, as the area is protected. We recommend using a professional contractor to ensure proper coating adhesion that will last many years.

The Cost of Cabinet Staining and Painting


Several factors will determine the pricing of your cabinet refinishing and painting services. First, we count the number of doors and drawers. The pricing can range from $129 to $189 per door and drawer. Even though a door is usually larger than a drawer, the process for both is the same and so is the price. There are three factors that affect what price point your cabinets refinishing will cost. First is the condition and material of your original cabinets. Oak cabinets often need wood filler so that the grains do not show on the finished product. Cabinets that have buildup of grease and dirt will require a lot of prep work. Second is the type of finish you are looking for. Mill Creek Painters is the only painting company in Alberta that uses Envirotek waterborne self-leveling primer and urethane enamel finish. This hard finish feels like glass and comes with a 10-year warranty. While refinishing cabinets is not inexpensive, it is much more economical than buying new cabinets.
