Cabinet Damage

There is a variety of ways that cabinets can become damaged. This can be caused by pet damage, insect damage, water damage, old age and neglect. Whatever the cause, unwanted damage to your cabinets is never a good thing.


Repairing cabinets is something that can be attempted with varying degrees of success as a DIY project. If you are intending to attempt these repairs yourself it is important to use the correct finishes if you want to have any longevity. Lacquer based finishes are typically used on cabinets because of there durability. For the best finish it is recommended to spray on the the varnish for the most uniform coating. In the event something such as a side panel is damaged, a skin can sometimes be used if the cabinet is still structurally sound. When done correctly, the cabinet will have virtually zero evidence the skin was even added.


Although some repairs can be made as a home owner, nothing will compare to what a skilled cabinet specialist can do. If cabinets have experienced extensive damage or the repairs need to be made with a high level of craftsmanship this is the recommended route to go. Someone who is a truly a master at this trade can surprise you with the level of detail that can be achieved.


In the event that the damages are caused by water damage, the typical repairs are not sufficient in most cases because the materials in and around the cabinets will first need to be dried. A restoration company will find all wet materials and set up specialized equipment to dry the materials. This will sometimes require the cabinets to be removed to access the drywall behind them to ensure all materials are dried completely. In this case the cabinets will be carefully removed to mitigate any unneeded repairs. If this is done incorrectly, a leak has been ongoing for any length of time or water damage was ignored all together then mold growth will almost always follow. This can cause adverse health affects and it is not recommended to inhabit a building that could have mold growth.
