Refinish Cabinets to Protect Your Home Investment

With fewer homeowners than ever putting their homes on the market, real estate prices in Portland have skyrocketed. As home values rise, it becomes more critical than ever before for those homeowners who are fortunate enough to own their home to protect the value of their investment.

Best upkeep


One of the ways a homeowner can enhance the upkeep of their home is through regular maintenance. The type of project will restore, preserve and protect their home. An example of this care is cabinet refinishing. Well maintained cabinets offer an aesthetic appeal to a residential property. Refinished cabinets or updated cabinets are considered to be one of the more upscale features of the kitchen or bath because the eye is naturally drawn to them.

Cabinets are designed to last for decades with proper care. With regular cleaning and refinishing when needed, they always look like new.

Heat and moisture

Most cabinets are in areas where heat and moisture conditions are harsh and take a toil. As aging occurs, cabinets can also become dirty and damaged. Part of the refinishing process involves repairing the damage. Refinished cabinets are newly protected against heat and moisture, and can just be cleaned when necessary.


When a homeowner chooses a color for cabinets, the color is often picked to enhance other features of the kitchen or bath. But, over time, the colors can look dirty, faded and drab. Refinishing cabinets make the color look fresh and new. Refinishing brings the true color back into focus, and reintroduces the common elements cabinets were chosen to enhance.

If your cabinets look like they have lost some of their original beauty, or if they look tired or have been damaged by one or more of the problems listed above, why not invest in a little TLC and have them refinished? When a homeowner works hard to pay for their house, it seems fair that they should receive the maximum amount of joy from it. That joy will be compounded if the kitchen and bath look their best. Cabinet refinishing is one of the ways to make a home look fantastic. Why not schedule a consultation with an expert today?
