Chicago Cabinet Repair

Here at Custom Cabinets Chicago, we offer cabinet design and cabinet improvements for cabinets that are already in place within your home. Just because cabinets are looking old or they have some broken pieces, doesn't mean that you need to have the old cabinets completely replaced. In fact, there are many ways that the older cabinets can be repaired and improved, to upgrade the appearance of the cabinets and strengthen them at the same time.

When Do Cabinets Need to be Repaired?

There are variety of reasons why you might be considering the services to have your cabinets repaired. Some people have old cabinets that have been worn down over time, and they want to simply upgrade the appearance of those old cabinets. In other cases, the cabinets have been beat up because of harsh treatment by kids, and some of the doors or handles have been broken when the kids were playing. Sometimes, basic repairs are sufficient to improve the appearance and strength of your cabinets, but there are situations when extensive repairs and restoration might be required to improve the appearance of your cupboards.

What Types of Repairs are Available?

We offer any types of repairs that are needed, and we will look at your cabinets and make suggestions about the repair services that might be beneficial. Examples of common repairs include touching up scratches and nicks, filling stripped screw holes, securing loose knobs, repairing a box drawer that has broken, repairing broken shelves, lubricating sticky doors and drawers, replacing door sliders that have worn out, putting bumpers on doors that bang when they are closed, replacing or adjusting bad latches, and adjusting hinges if the doors are misaligned. The advantage to repairing your cabinets instead of replacing them is the fact that you can save quite a bit of money. Some people assume that broken cabinets need to be replaced, and they are worried about the cost of installing new cabinets in their home. But, just because the cabinets are broken, doesn't mean that they need to be ripped out and replaced. In fact, there are a lot of options that are available to repair the cabinets and save you money at the same time. There's no reason to do away with perfectly good cabinets, especially when a few small repairs can restore the cabinets to their original quality.

Repairs and Refinishing

You might choose to just have the repairs done, but many people also prefer to use cabinet refinishing services at the same time. Repairs will simply fix any problems in order to keep the cabinets functioning and strong, but refinishing will completely transform the appearance of the cabinets. If you are planning to have your cabinets refinished or resurfaced, then we always suggest that you have the repairs done first before the refinishing is done. This way, you can protect the quality of the cabinets and ensure the longevity of the refinishing to avoid broken piece or parts soon after the cabinets have been refinished.

Hire a Professional to Help

Some people think that it's a good idea to start a do-it-yourself project to repair the cabinets on their own. But, if you don't have experience with woodworking or cabinet repair, then you might be getting yourself into a bigger project than you realize. Instead of wasting your time and money trying to do these repairs on your own, it is better to contact a professional who can help you with the cabinet repairs in Chicago.

Often, you can actually save money overall by hiring a professional in the beginning, because you won't have the extra cost of repairing the mistakes that you made when you were trying to do it on your own. A professional woodworking company can help with basic and extensive cabinet repairs, and you will love the cabinets after they are done.
