With home improvement being a major industry in itself, kitchen remodeling makes up another industry on its own. When remodeling projects can entail high cost and hassle, kitchen cabinet refacing is not just an option used by individuals looking to save on time and cost. It's a trend being supported by major companies around the country.
Remodeling the KitchenMany homeowners view kitchen remodeling as a major home improvement that increases not only the function and enjoyment of their home, but also its value--and they should. Realtor.org reports that kitchen remodeling offers one of the highest returns on investment (ROI), at over 80%. Refacing cabinets is one way homeowners can salvage good resources in their kitchen and save cost--something people all over the US are doing.
Refacing Wins AwardsThe franchise, Kitchen Tune-Up, has awarded a homegrown kitchen cabinet refacing company in Minnesota the 'Project of the Year' award this year for great work in kitchen remodeling. Steve and Mary LaRose's kitchen remodeling company is credited with bringing boxy 1970s kitchens into the 21st century. One of their primary tools is cabinet refacing.
Major Manufacturer Offers RefacingThe home improvement company, US Home Systems, uses retailers like Home Depot to sell their products. Much of their success as a company has come from kitchen remodeling products, and cabinet refacing is one of their services.
Finding Refacing ResourcesAnother remodeling company, Shower Pro USA (based in Arizona), offers an online remodeling directory for its customers--including a list of contractors for kitchen cabinet refacing. Interested homeowners can log on and browse the company's extensive list of licensed contractors and get quotes for kitchen remodeling.
Refacing is not a new concept, but more businesses than ever are now offering it, giving homeowners more options and more chances to earn positive ROI on their kitchen remodeling.
