What types of Natural Wood do you build cabinets out of?2019-03-05T21:24:54+00:00

Trends Wood Finishing can build wood cabinets out of any type of wood to add a unique colour and grain to your kitchen. Maple, Oak and Birch are probably the most popular types of wood that we use.

What is MDF?2019-04-04T13:40:34+00:00

MDF stands for Medium Density Fiberboard. Typically you have the option of MDF cabinet doors versus Solid Wood Kitchen cabinet doors. There are pros and cons to both, but overall MDF doors are less expensive than wood. Some people pick MDF because it is less expensive, but also because it is resilient to buckling and swelling with changes in humidity and heat. This makes MDF boards ideal for cabinetry in high humidity rooms, such as bathrooms. Another advantage of MDF materials is that sometimes real wood is not available, meanwhile, MDF is typically available in many shapes, sizes and styles, so you’ll never have to wait.

I saw some cabinets on Kijiji for sale in Oakville. Would you be able to refinish them for me and install them?2019-04-04T13:41:50+00:00

Yes, we could refinish them or resurface those cabinets for you. As for installation, it really depends on the cabinets and the dimensions of your kitchen. We would need to see the cabinets first and measure your kitchen for an accurate answer. The cabinets you are purchasing may also have considerable damage to them from water or mould. Speak to us first to see if it is a better option for us to custom build cabinets for you, so you have the kitchen you always desired.

Our cabinets can hold televisions on top, while the bottom can be used for storage. We also build bathroom cabinets that can hold towels and toiletries. Not only do we custom build cabinets, we install them in your kitchen, bathroom or living room, meaning they will look their best.

How long does it take to build custom cabinets?2019-04-04T13:43:59+00:00

Construction of the cabinets takes about a week. The most time-consuming process is the building of the doors. We could install the new cabinets in 1 day. If we are also installing a counter top, it will take approximately 2 days.

What is the cost of refinishing?2019-03-05T21:15:34+00:00

What is the cost of refacing?2019-03-05T21:15:06+00:00

As long as the cabinets are in good shape and aren’t overly damaged by mold, mildew, or excessive water damage, refacing will cost anywhere from 20 – 40% less than a brand-new kitchen.

Do you spray on site?2019-03-05T21:14:28+00:00

No, we do all the work in our state of the art shop that is well ventilated. We use industrial paints that require special facilities to be sprayed. We make sure that all of our products are environmentally friendly.

What are the benefits of refinishing?2019-03-05T21:13:48+00:00

Cabinet Refinishing costs less than refacing and can achieve that new kitchen look by using the old doors and repainting/staining them. Sometimes when you buy a new house (particularly in the older parts of Hamilton and Burlington), the kitchen cabinets are dreadfully out of style. You might not have it in your budget (because you just moved) to do a complete overhaul of your cabinets. However, refinishing them can easily make ancient cabinets from the ’60s look new again.

What are the benefits of refacing?2019-03-05T21:05:56+00:00

Refacing gives you the chance to give your kitchen a whole new look by replacing the cabinet doors.

  • Make your kitchen look brand new

  • Improve the selling price of your home

  • Re-veneering your cabinet boxes eliminates existing kitchen mildew and mold

What is the difference between refinishing and refacing?2019-03-05T20:58:25+00:00

Cabinet Refinishing is the process of changing the colour of the cabinets by painting.

Cabinet Refacing is when we take the doors on the cabinets and replace them for something new, modern, and stylish.

We had a wonderful experience working with Trends Wood Finishing. They are a professional team who helped us design our family room wall unit as well as our office cabinetry. We love the units and will enjoy them for years to come. Thank you for an amazing job!

We would highly recommend Luis, Renato and the rest of the Trends team!

I hired Trends Wood Finishing to reface our kitchen cabinets. It was a real pleasure working with Luis and his team. All are very kind and courteous.

Thank you Luis and I would recommend Trends Wood Finishing to anyone.

- Nancy Prior

We were referred to Trends by a friend and I have to say that we are really happy with the service, advice and end product of our kitchen makeover. Luis was always available via phone, email or in person to answer questions and provide his expert advice. The Trends staff and contractors involved in various aspects of our reno were trustworthy and competent, friendly and easy to deal with. Work was completed as per the schedule we originally discussed, and we are very happy with the look, feel and functionality of our new kitchen. Highly recommend Trends!

- Adam Melo

Excellent work, very helpful and friendly, reasonably priced, and ready sooner than promised. This is one of the best local family run operations that we’ve had the pleasure of working with. They accommodated all of our requests and changes with a smile. I can’t recommend highly enough. If you are remodeling your kitchen, don’t assume that you need to buy new cabinets. Luis and his team can refinish the existing cabinets, change cabinet & door sizes as required and make any matching extra parts that may be needed – all at a fraction of the cost of new.

Thank you, Luis and all your team who work in my kitchen, I am very happy that I went with your company, work well done, and I love my new kitchen. I will recommend Trends wood Finishing to all my family and friends, also who looks at the reviews. Keep up the good work.

- Maria Mendes

I am a stickler for great customer service and expect value for my hard-earned money, I have high expectations. Luis at Trends Wood Finishing Inc met all of my expectations, I have recommended him to my friends and will continue to do so. Luis and his staff went the extra mile while designing, building and installing a wall unit that covers one whole end wall of my living room, floor to ceiling, a statement piece. Everyone who visits me remarks on how beautiful it is. Luis was excellent about making sure all my wishes were met during the initial process of the build. His installation team were professional, very pleasant, extremely careful, on time and tidy. I would recommend them to anyone, in fact they are in process of doing another install in my kitchen.

- June Rushak

Luis and his skilled team of craftsmen did a great job, from design to installation. Timelines were met and issues that came up were dealt with quickly, decisively, and professionally. Luis takes great pride in his product and his relationship with his customer. I would definitely recommend Trends and would use them again for future projects.
