Chief Wood Finishing did an awesome job transforming our traditional cherry kitchen into a modern/transitional space. We love it!
From the quotation out, Vince was awesome in explaining the options, costs and process. He said our wood was in good enough condition for refinish, but warned us in advance that solid wood would expand/contract and would be more prone over time see cracks in refinished wood ... best longer term option would be to reface all to avoid this - he quoted both options. We were not ready to reface it all but we went in knowing the options and ultimately decided with the refinishing existing.
We did get a few other quotes for refinishing our cabinets but they did not get our pick; We picked Chief wood as they are not only specialists in painting/refinishing but also staff in-house wood/cabinetry resources. They also Any issues arise, we felt this team was best fit to address it - and we were 100% right! They rebuilt our drawer boxes at a great price and installed bottom mount slow closing rails giving better action and durability (retro-fit is more difficult align, less durable over time). We are happy with their suggestion and how they turned out. They were also able to swap out a few gables that were damaged and replace a drawer front and match to existing with ease. The were very reasonable in price for additional scope!
The team was efficient - Big thank you to Max, Karl, Michel, as well the taping / prep crew. They worked really hard and were respectful. They did get a bit busy with another job at the end and were a bit scarce at that time but most of the work was done...In that case, Vince took personal time out of his evenings showing up/working to ensure we were 110% happy with the end result. Throughout the project, communication was great, texting and getting feedback directly while I was at work - awesome.
We feel safe that if we are to have any quality issues Chief will stand by their work. And if we ever see any of the natural cracking occurring due to the solid wood / lacquer - we will not hesitate to have Chief fabricate and paint a new drawer face or door for us!
Based off of our experience we would highly recommend this company.
Thanks so much guys!
