How much does custom woodworking cost?

Every project we do is unique and different from the last one. Usually the conversation begins over email regarding scope, desing, layout and materials. This gives us a jumping off point for an intial esitmate. If this meets your budget, we then go into more details of the porject and start on drawings for the project. The way we do it is to sit down and review the project and come up with an initial estimate that we email to the client. What we take into consideration is design, finishes, hardware and installation, among others. We are custom shop that does our own finishes to get the final project top notch.

Does Refacing work for every situation?

In some instances, such as when homeowners are gutting their previous kitchen and knocking down walls, new cabinets are certainly the way to go. But most kitchen remodels are completed without much change to the existing layout. Kitchen remodels keeping the same layout due to space constraints or locations of doors and windows are ideal candidates for homeowners to consider refacing.

Save Time – Average time of a reface is roughly 2-5 days, while a general contractor may disrupt your household for as long as 4-8 weeks to tear out and remodel your kitchen. 

Save Money –Rydawell Woodworks can create an amazing kitchen you'll be proud of, for around half the cost of a typical kitchen remodel. 

Improve Quality– Our hand selected woods, durable finishes and expert installation upgrades your kitchen to the quality of high-end custom cabinetry, enhancing its beauty and value.  A kitchen reface can add instant value to your home.

Improve Functionality – Rydawell Woodworks can modify your existing cabinets and add many of the modern features and accessories available with new cabinets. We can add dovetail drawer boxes and soft close hardware as an example. 

Add More Space - This is something that makes us stand out from the competition. Since we also provide new cabinetry in our full service wood shop, we are able to do hybrid kitchen remodels and refaces, which can let you add an island or a new part of your kitchen. This is a great option if you are happy with your countertops, but want to reconfigure upper areas of cabinetry.  

Environmentally Friendly –Most any kitchen cabinet size, grade, or configuration can be refaced or renewed, which means less waste going in to the landfill and less new raw material being consumed, compared to tearing out and replacing cabinets. 

How much does refacing cost?

Every reface is a custom cabinetry job, so pricing varies due to size, wood species, door styles, finishes and upgrades.  The most common reface style we do is a cherry shaker style. To give a rough idea on cost, this style usually comes in around $50 a SF. We consider this to be a great value with a quality wood, which is why it is our most popular reface. See some of our styles below along with a guide on how to calculate your cabinet square footage. 

In the example of this kitchen, it has a upper cabinet area of 10' by 3', for a total of 30 square feet. The lower cabinet area has the same dimensions for an additional 30 SF, or 60 total square feet.  This website, lets you input width and height and calculates the square footage for you.
