Our Products Used:
We have two options for our customers.
Cabinet doors and drawers are removed and sprayed in the shop with a commercial grade water-borne acrylic or acid cured catalysed enamel. We found these products to be the most durable and will protect your cabinetry better than any typical paint.
Cabinet bodies can either be finished by hand or sprayed for an up-charge. Wood finishes such as maple usually need to be sprayed as they have a very smooth surface and will not look good otherwise.

The commercial grade water-borne acrylic is a revolutionary new product that performs like a solvent based product and has the environmental safety of a typical water based product. It will give you the durability and finish of a solvent/oil based product without negative health and potential harmful gases that are released from the product over time. It also has low VOC (volatile organic compounds) profile like many other water based products and meets the new most stringent regulatory standards without sacrificing the durability.
For those customers wanting a solvent based product we do also offer solvent based acid-cured catalysed enamel that is arguably more durable than the water-borne acrylic but not as environmentally friendly. If you do want the solvent based product it will be a more expensive choice than our water-borne acrylic.
With the Water-Borne acrylic you can expect:
- Low VOC & Odor
- Excellent Adhesion to Cabinetry
- Excellent Hardness (durability)
- Flexible (withstands bends, no cracking or peeling)
With the Catalysed Enamel you can expect:
- Maximum Durability
- Maximum Adhesion and Abrasion resistance
- Glass like finish
Our Competitions Products:
It is important when getting multiple quotes to compare ‘apples to apples’ as they say. Most cabinet refinishing companies in the greater Vancouver like to use a straight acrylic or sprayed Lacquer to refinish your cabinets. Lacquer and the majority of water based products will chip and fade, especially near the handles where the oils off your hands will break down the product causing it to weaken and eventually chip.
I get a lot of calls from people asking for ballpark pricing on roughly what its going to cost them. A typical price range for most kitchens is between $3,000 to $6,000. Both the size of your kitchen, # of doors, condition of cabinetry, size of doors, and type of material (oak, mdf, maple etc.) will affect the price. I have finished door samples of various types of cabinetry that I can show you if you would like to see first hand the finished product. One thing I will say is that the finished product looks like your cabinets came out of a factory floor brand new. In comparison the cost to replace those old looking wood cabinets are going to be at least 3-4 times more than getting us to refinish them.
Hinges & Hardware:
We are now offering a service to remove any old hinges/handles and replace them with the new style hidden hinges. This can be the finishing touch on updating your kitchen cabinets as the old style hinges can really date your cabinets. Customers can also purchase the hinges through us as well and the different styles can be viewed at http://www.marathonhardware.com/.
