Kitchen cabinet refacing services

Choose the Reface-it or Replace-it kitchen solution for an instant and affordable solution to transform your kitchen. Get stunning kitchen cabinets in a few weeks’ time.

Here is what’s included with our kitchen cabinet refacing services

Modernize your kitchen at a lower cost, in just a few weeks! To get started, you must submit your information by filling out our online form. Then, we will put you in contact with a refacing kitchen specialist within 3 working days, with whom you will discuss the door models, colours, finishes and the various services provided during a home consultation. Once onsite, he will determine the cost of the work, based on the measurements and the elements to be modified. The kitchen designer will also assess whether certain cabinet frames need to be replaced: if so, please note that 6 to 8 weeks production delays are to be expected in the project schedule. Once the quote is accepted, the sales contract signed and payment made, we will place the order for the material needed: at this stage, no cancellation is possible.

The refacing work will take place on the date and time agreed in advance with the installer, which is approximately 4 to 6 weeks after the contract signature. As a final step, your installer will inspect the work with you to make sure the installation is properly done and he will clean up the job site before leaving.

Meet with your specialist

First meeting
You will meet a refacing kitchen designer at your home, with whom you will discuss the materials, colours, designs and various services according to your project. At the end of the meeting or within a few working days, the kitchen designer will provide you a quote for your refacing project.

Second meeting
A specialist may need to go back to your home to take new measures to produce counters or any other additional services.

Once you have approved the project and made the payment, a local, licensed and insured independent installer will schedule an appointment to finalize your project.
He will:
• Remove existing doors & hardware
• Prepare cabinet surfaces where required
• Apply matching coloured peel-and-stick veneer
• Replace doors, drawer fronts and edging
• Clean up edges to fit to size
• Install new soft close hinges and doors
• Add new handles and/or complimentary accessories

Please note that the installer may need to return to your home a few days after refacing your cabinets to install the new countertops.

It’s installation day! Ensure the space is prepped and ready for installation.

That means:
• Disconnect plumbing and electrical elements
• Clear out cabinets, countertops and open shelving, and remove appliances
• A clear path should be made to the space receiving installation
• Floors should be protected to avoid potential damage*

Appointment confirmation

The installer will call ahead of time to confirm his estimated time of arrival and review safety steps with you.

Safety measures

All installers are required to pass a daily health screening, they must wear personal protective equipment, and sanitize work area and tools on each job.

Customer satisfaction

In order to be a part of our Independent Installer program, all contractors must go through the toughest rating test of all – your satisfaction.

And don’t forget! We offer a 1-year labour warranty on all installation services and we provide assistance 7 days a week through our call centre at 1-844-454-1454.

If all is approved, the customer signs a work acceptance form. Finally, we contact each customer after the installation is completed asking them to fill out a survey for feedback on the job’s execution.

Repairman were punctual, they knew what they were doing, and very clean.
Alex Aftasi, Ontario
Violeta is a force of nature! She knows her stuff, is quick and efficient and just overall awesome. Being able to come in late at night (8-9pm) and book all this was a big reason why we were able to even do our project.
Elliot Mereski, Alberta
The staff and the technicians/installers were competent, clean and friendly.
Serge Millen, Ontario
Maria and Tina (installation department) Lowe’s in Woodbridge were excellent in their follow up and keeping me advised as the project advanced. I realize Covid 19 did slow the process and I understand that.
Bob Murray, Ontario
They were busy, so the initial call was about a week past the time we were initially told to expect their call. The day of the appointment, they were on time. Fully professional. They answered all of our questions, on site. The product was actually early. Very happy with the end result.
Allison Strata, Alberta
The whole process was so positive that I'm planning on utilizing Lowe's installation services for a bathroom renovation.
Lorraine Ferraro, Ontario
We had a positive experience with Lowe’s kitchen cupboard representative Ekta right from the beginning. She was so helpful with helping us pick out the different materials needed to renovate our kitchen and offered us outstanding service. She connected us with Scott Maisie who came to our house and explained what all they could do to give us the kitchen we wanted. The installers did outstanding work and we are so happy with the outcome.
Nancy Kirby, Alberta
Ran into a small problem and took care of it and fixed it up to our satisfaction. Keep up the good work.
