Yelp Review (5 Star)

"Beautiful work!!! We are so happy that we chose Kammes to refinish our kitchen. The entire team (father, son, daughter) was very professional and easy to work with. Communication was very quick and informative. We were given a detailed quote and specific instructions on what to expect throughout the process. The team spent 4 days working on our cabinet boxes, then delivered our doors a week later. Everything was scheduled accordingly where we left the team inside our home with no worries whatsoever. The added carpentry was absolutely stunning. I highly recommend this to anyone redoing their cabinets. We used "White Dove" as our color choice, which turned out amazing! Don't wait any longer, just make the appointment!!! You will not regret it!!!"

Any house painter can paint your cabinets so why do you need a specialist? This is a question I am certain many people will ask themselves when they decide to move forward with hiring out their cabinet refinishing project.

A house painter will likely be a much more affordable option for your project and the reason is simple. They are going to just paint over your cabinets . Your kitchen cabinets are the most used surface in your home, they need more than the standard approach to painting by house painters and DIY bloggers. Saving money on painting your cabinets the easy way can come at a great cost. When you hire a specialist to paint your cabinets (a company that offers it as their primary service) you have a much better chance of getting a quality job done. You have likely noticed that I focus heavily on the foundational prep work. There is more to the process than just that, but without those steps, you are building on an unstable foundation. We outline our process on our website in detail so that our customers can have a clear understanding of what we do and why. 

Our Detailed Prepping Process



Our Process is the primary reason you should hire our company for your cabinet refinishing project, we just make sure it is not the only reason. I challenge you to find another company that has a more solid process for prepping your cabinetry prior to top-coating. I will understand if you'd rather not waste your time shopping around once you find us, though! Everyone wants their cabinetry to look great, and we will impress you with our finishes, but the detail, time, and labor that goes into the prep work is what you will not find anywhere else. Why attempt to build without a solid foundation? And we will do all of this without making a dusty mess out of your home!

Why not hire an ordinary painter to paint your cabinets?



Cabinet Door that was "Just Painted Over"


When it comes to a service-based business, bigger is rarely better. More people in an organization often leads to more problems and a diluted experience. Some companies hire out work to sub-contractors to avoid having a lot of employees. This approach makes them more of a middle man than a company. You do not know who you are hiring in this situation and are simply rolling the dice. 

Small companies have a tendency to overbook themselves and always be too busy to offer their best services. They mean well but just can't manage the volume of work coming in properly. 

Both sides always want to get as much done as possible to earn their profit margins so rushing around is the easiest way to make that happen. This leads to cutting corners, overlooking details, and simply not having the time to do things right.

We set out to provide an experience that works best for the customer and our company, The Kammes Colorworks Experience! We have just the right number of workers in our small family business to be the most efficient and effective at what we do so you get more for your money and we have the time allowed to do your job the right way every time. All of our workers have mastered their skill sets. You always get the A-team when you hire Kammes Colorworks for your kitchen cabinet painting project and we want to impress you with our abilities!
