Refresh your and save your money.

My name is Sean, owner of Sullivan Paint & Design. I’ve been a painter for over 10 years improving the look of homes around the greater Hamilton area. In the last 3 years I’ve focused my abilities on cabinet refacing to give my customers a quality product for less.

Benefits of Cabinet Refinishing:

The Process:

1. Cabinet doors and drawer fronts are removed, labeled and painted on site. We build a spray booth where they are re-finished.

2. All surfaces such as doors, drawer fronts, moldings, and bases are cleaned with a degreaser such as TSP.

3. All Surfaces are then scuff sanded with 220 – grit sandpaper and wiped and vacuumed clean.

4. One or two coats of primer are then applied. The type and number of coats of primer are determined by the substrate that we are working with.

5. The surface is again sanded using 220 grit sandpaper and again cleaned and vacuumed prior to applying the first finish coat.

6. The first coat of finish is applied and the surface is again sanded

7. The second coat of finish is applied (a third coat if necessary) and the doors are left to cure. For a day or two before they are reinstalled.

We will be using a Benjamin Moore Product (Scuff-X):

It’s a high-performance, one-component latex coating specifically engineered to deliver outstanding performance and protection for the toughest high-traffic, even in busy commercial spaces. This product offers superior durability and scuff-resistant properties than traditional 2-component coatings. This paint will retain its high-quality appearance much longer with minimal maintenance. Washable, Great touch up.

Any colour, we can match in any sheen: Matte, Satin, Semi-Gloss.
