Has normal wear and tear caught up with your cabinets? Are your cabinet drawers worn? Does the wood seem greasy or grimy? Our unique, comprehensive wood reconditioning process (Tune-Up) makes woodwork look like new. It works in the kitchen and throughout your home or business. Tune-Up cabinets, drawers, windowsills, mantelpieces and even antique wood! Quick and affordable, there’s no better way to revitalize your woodwork.

What is a Tune-Up?

A Tune-Up is our proprietary wood reconditioning process. We start by separating, then removing, the build-up (dirt, grease, wax, smoke and dust) from the wood’s original finish. Then we touch up and blend the areas where color may have faded and apply a special colorant. Finally, we can treat your cabinets with a special penetrating oil that restores dried-out wood fibers and/or apply an entirely fresh coat of finish. We’ll have your wood looking like new in no time!

Is wood reconditioning the right choice for me?

There are three signs your cabinets might need reconditioning: 1) There’s stubborn build-up on the wood, 2) the stain/finish has worn away or 3) there is minor damage to your cabinets. If one or more of these describe your cabinets, but they don’t need to be completely replaced, reconditioning could be the right choice for you.

Is wood reconditioning expensive?

Kitchen Tune-Up makes wood reconditioning so easy and affordable, you can make it part of your regular home maintenance. It’s the most cost-effective way to keep all your cabinetry and woodwork looking fresh and clean without unnecessary hassle and stress.

Is it messy and time consuming?

Our process keeps mess to a minimum on most projects. Wood reconditioning typically takes less than one day, which means you can freshen up your kitchen in time for that upcoming dinner party or holiday gathering.

Are there other benefits to reconditioning my cabinets?

When you recondition your cabinets, you’re doing more than just beautifying your home. You’re actually doing your part to help the environment, too! By retaining the cabinets you already have, you’re keeping them out of a landfill and no energy or materials have gone into making new ones. It’s just another great reason to give Kitchen Tune-Up a call!

  • I cant believe its my kitchen. After many years of wanting a new look in my kitchen, I took the second shot for a make over. The first time I tried to do the update, it ended in a disaster. My 40 plus year cabinets were in need of an update. During many years of going to the home show's in our area, I spoke with Dale of Kitchen Tune-Up. After giving me the estimate and what he was going to do the the kitchen, I felt confident in having him to proceed with the work. Dale arrived on time, orderly in preparing the area for the work and cleaned up at the end of the day. One of his biggest asset was helping me plan the kitchen and what I would like. He hit everything on the nose and I'm so glad that I went with his suggestions because its exactly what I wanted and didn't know how to put it in words. He was friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful. It's nice knowing that there are still people with all these skills, workmanship and very caring. I love my Kitchen Tune-Up! This was the most satisfying, perfect job ever done in our home. Thank you Dale!
