Cleaning, Disassembly and Prepping
The first day begins with the removal of each door and drawer and removing handles and hinges. Each door and drawer is numbered to ensure it is reinstalled in the proper location. The doors and drawers are then taken to a self contained, contaminate-free spray booth which we assemble the first day, on sight. Everything is then decreased and lightly sanded before rinsing with a 50/50 mixture of Denatured Alcohol and water. The first of two coats of Shellac Primer are then sprayed and lignly sanded bwtween coats to increase the adhesion beween the origial substrate and the new finish.
prepping and priming kitchen
Our number one prioroty is your safety therefore we set up a barrier betwen the kitchen and the rest of your home which is well ventilated out a window or a door. The floors are all protected with coverings as are your walls, sink, and appliances. After we have degreased and sanded the boxes in kitchen, we apply tape to the insider perimiter of each cabinet and door frame and then cover the inside with paper. (insert image). After we double check that every inch of your kitchen is protected, we proceed with applying the primer with the same process as with the doors and drawers from the day before.
The third day will consist of spraying top coats on the doors, drawers and boxes. We apply 3 coats of Sher-Wood Kemvar Conversion Varnish to each surface allowing it to dry for approximately 30 minutes between coats.
