Why Do Kitchen Cabinets Take So Long To Paint?

Kitchen Cabinets are located in the hub of family life, requiring care and attention to detail.

When it’s time to get a touch-up in the home, we love that people in San Jose know us and trust us at Basurto Painting with their home improvements. We have worked hard to develop a reputation for being dependable and thorough at our work.

Sometimes, though, we do encounter some resistance for the time our practice takes. When quoting time and price for kitchen painting and repainting work, one of the questions we often hear is, “Why do my kitchen cabinets take so long to paint?”

Our answer is that your Kitchen area is very sensitive. It’s often the hub of family life and no one likes the idea of having to close it down for more than a day, but we need time to disassemble it, paint it, let it dry, and re-assemble it. And that will sometimes take longer than you might expect.

It’s crucial to note that there are also a lot of dangerous elements for contractors to work around when painting in a kitchen. In addition to having your food stores there, you have an active water source, and often an open gas line. These things must be respected in terms of where we stand as we do the work and where we will finish.

Of course, one of the biggest issues with time consumption and your kitchen repaint are the doors. In all likelihood, no other room in your house has as many hinged doors as your kitchen does. That means we’ll need to remove those doors to work on the doors themselves and the cabinet framing as well, and have to take extra care not to paint over your hinges.
