The Difference Between Cabinet Refinishing and Cabinet Refacing

Upgrading your cabinets is often one of the most important features of a kitchen or bathroom renovation. However, replacing your cabinets is expensive and time-consuming. Not to worry, though. You can get the look and feel of new cabinets in much less time and without spending a fortune by choosing cabinet refinishing or cabinet refacing.

Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design in Calgary can walk you through each process so you can decide what option is right for you.

Cabinet Refinishing

Cabinet refinishing, or cabinet painting, is when you keep your cabinet doors and drawer fronts and simply paint or stain them. If your cabinetry is in good shape, you can save up to 75% of the kitchen renovation cost when you go with cabinet painting in Calgary.

Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design are experts in the Calgary cabinet refinishing industry. Their team can advise on colour options. Then, they will take your cabinets to their project site. Here, they’ll take your cabinets through a rigorous preparation process. This starts by washing and degreasing them. From there, cabinets go through a thorough sanding process to ensure uniform texture. Then a matching finish is applied to any exposed panels and frames for seamless results. All this takes place before cabinet door priming, and painting even begins.

Once your newly painted doors and drawer fronts are installed, the look is often complete with upgraded hardware. This includes new hinges, door knobs and drawer pulls. Reach out to their team today to understand how they can give your kitchen a makeover.

Cabinet Refacing

Also known as cabinet re-dooring, with this option, you keep your cabinet boxes and replace the doors and drawer fronts. A matching veneer is often applied to exposed panels and frames to complete the look.

When your cabinet doors have a little more wear and tear or need a bit more love, cabinet refacing is the way to go. Or, if your cabinetry is made of laminate or metal and therefore can’t be sanded, or the wood has deeper nicks or dings or is warping, replacing the doors and drawers of your cabinets will give them the upgrade they need without having to replace them completely. In addition, it’s a good option if you want to completely change the style of your doors more than painting can.

Can Do More Painting – Refinishing & Design are specialists in cabinet refacing in Calgary. Their team can also apply custom finishes to the job. This includes new hardware, upgraded function and more. Reach out to see how your kitchen or bathroom can get the facelift you’ll love.

Benefits of each

There are pros to both cabinet refinishing in Calgary and cabinet refacing, and it’s important to always do your research. Then the question becomes, what option is best for you and your home? Also, which is the best for your budget!

One benefit of cabinet painting is less waste if your doors are in good shape. Not replacing your doors means less is going to the garbage dump. The cost of painting is also less than the cost of replacing your doors. So, if budget is top of mind, you could save a little more here.

On the other hand, cabinet refacing may cost a little more, but the benefit is an increased return on investment. This is especially true if your cabinets need a more modern feel. When you have a specific look in mind, re-dooring also means more customization, and you can get the cabinet look you’ve always wanted.

Return on Investment of Cabinet Painting in Calgary

When it comes to doing home renovations, the options are endless. So how do you ensure the best ROI possible? Kitchen renovations often offer a greater ROI compared to other interior work. Bathroom renovations can also go a long way.

Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design provides suggestions here. Learn how they can deliver a great ROI with cabinet painting in Calgary and other renovations

Save on your kitchen renovation with cabinet painting

According to recent cost vs. value data, minor kitchen renovations have the highest return on investment compared to other interior home renovations. You can recover over 71% of your kitchen renovation cost at resale. That’s significant!

Cabinets take a large chunk of your kitchen renovation budget, and many homeowners believe you have to fully replace your cabinets to get a new look. This is expensive and time-consuming. It means removing your cabinets, countertops, sinks, faucets, and in some cases, the backsplash. That labour alone is significant. Add in the takedown and replacement of all these other features, and your costs will soar.

Instead of that cost and headache, consider cabinet painting! Cabinet painting, also known as cabinet refinishing, will noticeably reduce costs without impacting results. In doing so, you’ll have an even higher return on your investment.

With cabinet painting, you keep every portion of your cabinets. Here, the renovation focuses solely on painting or staining all exposed aspects of your cabinetry. Your contractor will remove doors and drawer fronts, strip them of all existing finishes and then repaint or stain them to your taste.

Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design are experts in all-things-cabinet-refinishing. Their thorough preparations and cabinet painting processes will ensure a professional look that will get you that sought-after ROI.

Painting your bathroom cabinets 

A midrange bathroom renovation will further improve the value of your home. Just as kitchen cabinet refinishing (instead of replacing) is a lower-cost/high-impact choice, the same goes for your bathroom cabinets. Bathrooms are also one of the most used rooms in the home. Cabinet painting will improve your bathroom’s look and function and help boost property value.

Other minor modifications to your kitchen and bathroom include countertop replacement and new cabinet hardware. While your cabinets are being repainted, painters in Calgary can also add fresh colour to kitchen trim or interior bathroom doors.

Paint the walls, not just your cabinets

You’ve decided to refinish your kitchen and bathroom cabinets to increase your home’s value. In addition, house painting in Calgary is also a value-adding renovation. Opting for a fresh coat of paint on the walls or little touch-ups to high-impact areas can increase marketability. Remember, new paint can also help maintain your home’s value over time. Either way, don’t choose bold or extreme paint colours if you want to sell at some point, as it could deter buyers. Choose neutral colour options for better value.

Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design paint and renovation experts can offer all the above services and more! Contact them today to discuss cabinet refinishing, interior painting and other renovations.

3 Simple Upgrades to Prepare Your Home For Sale

You’re ready to put your house on the market in Calgary, and you also want to receive the highest value possible for your home. Some simple upgrades can help you achieve this. So how can you keep your upgrades simple and ensure a good return on investment?

In this article, Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design shares three simple upgrades that will increase your ROI and move your house off the market faster.

Interior paint

Painters in Calgary can make your home look fresh, modern and inviting with an outstanding interior paint job. With a few coats of the right colour, and various painting techniques, you can take an outdated, drab-looking home and transform it into the kind of house buyers are attracted to. If you don’t have the budget to paint the whole house, it’s nothing to worry about. Even a kitchen refresh can do wonders to increase the value and overall look. Paint the bathrooms and, perhaps, the master bedroom with a feature wall, to really take it up a notch.

However, choosing the right paint colours to put your house on the market is key. Avoid bold or bright colours, as those might not appeal to all buyers. Instead, consider light neutral tones that create a blank canvas for the next potential owner. The skilled professionals at Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design are here to help!

Cabinet renovation

It’s a misconception that you need brand-new kitchen cabinets to elevate your home’s value and aesthetic. Replacing cabinets is also time-consuming and costly. Calgary cabinet refinishing is an excellent alternative. Cabinet refinishing is another term for cabinet painting. Painting your cabinet doors and drawers can completely transform any room with cabinetry, giving it the look of a major upgrade without the price tag.

If you’ve got it in the budget to do a little more, cabinet re-dooring is another upgrade option to get your home ready for sale. Instead of replacing your cabinets, just the doors are replaced in this process. This isn’t the kind of job you want to take on yourself. Skilled professionals will use various techniques and minor modifications to ensure stunning results!

Can Do More Paint – Renovation & Design has got you covered here! They can also walk you through all options to help you decide if cabinet painting in Calgary or cabinet re-dooring is worth the investment for your particular home sale.

Interior door and trim paint

Another simple upgrade option that can go a long way is painting interior doors and trim in your home. This is another high-impact, low-cost paint option. Many people don’t give interior door, and trim paint much thought regarding home upgrades. However, doors and trim can get scuffed and banged up over time. A fresh coat of paint will make it look new again. Can Do More Paint – Renovation & Design has the experience and knowledge for all-things-door-and-trim paint!

Contact Can Do More Paint – Renovation & Design today! You’ll have your upgrades done and your home looking fabulous and ready for sale in no time!

4 Popular features to include in your kitchen remodel

Kitchen renovations are large, extensive projects requiring many big decisions. However, functional kitchens are about more than just the work triangle. Other features can significantly improve your daily kitchen experience.

Renovation Science in Burnaby offers full-scale renovation services, including kitchen renovations. They suggest a few features to include in your kitchen remodel.

1. A large sink

A common kitchen woe for many homeowners is a sink that turns out to be too small. Your sink should be able to accommodate large pots and pans without issue. Whether you want a single or dual sink is up to you. There are advantages to both! If you prefer to hand wash your dirty dishes, you’ll probably prefer a dual sink. On the other hand, a single sink is best if you rely more on your dishwasher. Dedicated chefs may even prefer an additional prep sink to speed up their cooking.

2. Kitchen eating area

A dedicated dining area within your kitchen is a fantastic way to get more out of the space. Of course, the amount of square footage available could limit your options. Small kitchens may only have room for a couple of bar stools. However, if you renovate with an eat-in area in mind, you’ll find it easier to integrate this secondary eating space.

An eat-in kitchen is the perfect informal place to gather with friends and family. You can share a quick bite before the main course (held in the dining room) or enjoy tapas fresh out of the oven. Kitchen islands are a natural choice for kitchen dining.

3. Under-cabinet lighting

Trying to chop vegetables in the dark is an easy way to lose a finger. Unfortunately, the prep areas underneath your kitchen cabinets are often poorly lit. Abundant daylight is great; however, it’s not always available. Consequently, there’s value in installing high-quality lighting underneath your cabinets to properly light your prep areas. You can also opt for dimmable under-cabinet lighting to give you more control and ambiance.

4. Hot and cold water dispensers

Life is too short to be continually waiting for hot water. It’s time to add hot and cold water dispensers to your kitchen. These devices are truly a modern wonder- you will never want to return to the old days when the water took minutes to boil. On-demand hot water is great if you drink coffee or tea. Plus, it gives you a jump start on a pot of boiling water. Frankly, a hot water dispenser streamlines everything.

Cold water dispensers can be installed with advanced filtration systems (like reverse-osmosis), so every glass will taste better and be better for you.

Kitchen Renovations in Burnaby

Renovation Science is committed to creating your dream home. Their team of expert contractors transforms your home to be more comfortable, functional, and beautiful. Furthermore, they aim to provide the best renovation experience possible through attentiveness, integrity, and strategic planning.

Why you should hire a professional painting company


Painting is easily the most cost-effective and fastest way to transform the look and feel of your home. Interior or exterior, a professional paint job can refresh your home, adding value and protection. But should you DIY or hire a pro?

Phoenix Finishing Touch Painting in Edmonton offers superior painting services and is passionate about producing results clients love. They share why you should always hire a professional painting company for your home upgrade.

A flawless finish

Professional painters like Phoenix Finishing Touch Painting will produce an exquisite finish on your paint job. While DIY might seem simple enough, it is very easy to make mistakes. After all that hard work, you might find drips, brush stroke marks, paint where it’s not supposed to be (like on trim or the ceiling) and an uneven finish. A professional painter pays close attention to detail. With a skilled hand, they will ensure clean lines, even coverage, and a beautifully finished paint job.

Extensive preparation

Attention to detail in preparation is also vital to a quality paint job. Not only does prep bring superior results, but it also ensures the paint will last. A pro painter will repair and prepare the surface before painting. Additionally, Phoenix Finishing Touch Painting will make sure the entire site is protected, including any cabinets, flooring, and fixtures in the room.

Less mess

Painting can be a messy job. So, in addition to site protection, Phoenix Finish Painting keeps the job site and your home as clean as possible. They use dustless sanding equipment to prepare surfaces and clean up the area after each workday. With DIY paint jobs, you have to worry about covering and protecting areas from paint, messy clean-up, and disposal of used paint supplies.

Less time

Painting a home’s interior can be lengthy and time-consuming, especially for an inexperienced DIYer trying to do it in their spare time. What might take you a week, a professional painting company can do in a day or two. They’re fast and efficient and do not make timely or costly mistakes.

The right paint

A lot of time is spent researching and sourcing the right painting products and supplies for your paint job. However, a professional painter knows the best paint for your specific job, budget, and style. In addition, they know what type of paint to buy and can often get a higher quality paint at a better price.

Furthermore, they can source low or no VOC paint to ensure healthy air quality. If you’re unsure what colours to choose, their experts can provide a colour consultation. Read more tips on how to choose interior paint colours.

Transformation you’ll love

Phoenix Finish Painting takes pride in its work every day. They are passionate about transforming their client’s homes and making your vision a reality. A new paint job will completely rejuvenate your space, turning it into a space you love being in. As a result, you’ll feel better about your home and your decision to invest in professional painting.

Painters in Edmonton

They use a Festool HEPA dustless sanding tool that collects 95% of the dust at the source, ensuring better air quality and a cleaner space during the project. Whether you’re doing an interior or exterior paint job, cabinet painting, trim, doors, or ceiling update, Phoenix Finishing Touch Painting is ready to help.

The 4 Best Commercial General Contractors in Calgary


Is your business in desperate need of a commercial renovation? Or are you building a new commercial space? A commercial remodel is a fantastic investment in your business’s future. It can help bring in new customers or tenants, improve morale among your workers, and usher your company into a new chapter.

No matter your project’s size or scope, you will need an expert commercial general contractor at the helm. They understand all the moving parts of a commercial renovation, such as permitting, scheduling, and ordering materials. With their expertise, your project will progress smoothly and be completed on time and within budget.

Hiring a commercial contractor? Use this checklist

1. Refine your goals

Finding the right fit for your project is easier if you’re clear on what you want. Take some time to refine your goal and understand why you’re renovating in the first place. After all, knowing your goals from the beginning allows you to better screen potential contractors and helps to ensure a successful project.

Once you understand your “why,” you can explain it to various commercial contractors. Calgary businesses that present a clear vision and goal will find it easier to discern if a company is right or wrong for their project. On the other hand, if a contractor lacks experience in your sector or doesn’t get your goals, they’re not the right choice.

2. Get estimates from several contractors

You should already have a comprehensive budget in mind, especially if you need to seek financing before construction begins. Asking multiple companies for estimates allows you to find the contractor that most closely matches your budget. The company you hire must be able to work with your budget without going over. However, you don’t want your contractor to cut corners.

Getting estimates does allow you to shop based on price… but we don’t recommend that. Price is only one factor you should consider when hiring Calgary commercial general contractors. You must also prioritize quality. If you receive an estimate substantially lower than the rest, that’s a red flag. It’s likely that the company is compromising quality and, potentially, taking dangerous shortcuts.

3. Do background checks

Before you hire any contractor for any project, you must check their credentials. A reputable company has the proper provincial business licensing, insurance, and WCB coverage. You can ask for their licenses and verify that they are current and up-to-date. Working with a company that lacks these credentials puts you and your business at risk! 

You should also look into history for formal complaints or legal actions. You want a reputable, trustworthy company with a clean record.

4. Ask for references

Does your potential contractor have a track record of success? Do their previous clients recommend their services? How does the contractor handle unexpected problems, which will inevitably happen on any renovation site? A long list of happy customers is the best indicator of an honest, quality, and trustworthy company. Asking for references will help you determine if they are a quality company with excellent customer service.

Online reviews are fast and convenient; however, they’re not always honest. Some companies will add fake positive reviews to paint a better picture of their company. Therefore, ask the company if they can provide contact information for their three most recent clients. This way, the company can’t cherry-pick past projects. Instead, you’ll get a well-rounded idea about their quality of work and service and learn more about what the company can do.

5. Make sure you get along with the contractor

It’s also important that you like your contractor. After all, you two will spend a lot of time together! If your personalities aren’t a good fit, then looking elsewhere is best. Otherwise, the renovation or construction process will be more stressful and run into unavoidable issues. You should choose a company that matches your communication style and has a good attitude. Furthermore, they should be transparent and practice open communication. A contractor with a friendly, positive demeanour and good communication skills will be much more enjoyable to work with.

Trust a RenovationFind Certified Company

With RenovationFind, it’s easier than ever to find trustworthy and reputable commercial contractors in Calgary. We have a free online directory of certified companies, like those listed below. Each company listed on RenovationFind has passed a stringent screening process.

The 5 Best Painting Contractors in Ottawa

Best Painters in Ottawa

Over time, the colour on our walls fades or goes out of style. You might have also grown tired of looking at the same wall colour every day. Regardless, a new coat of paint is a great way to freshen up your home or business and brighten your life. The following professional painting companies will be happy to help you update your property with a beautiful new paint application.

Services to look for in a painting company in Ottawa

Proper preparation

Any experienced painting company will tell you that proper preparation is crucial for a flawless paint application. So why would you hire a company that doesn’t take care of the prep work? Proper preparation doesn’t just mean cleaning the walls (although they should do this too). It also means moving your furniture, protecting what cannot be moved and removing fixtures. It also requires minor drywall repair, filling pinholes, sanding and more.

Furthermore, it’s key to properly prep the actual surfaces that will be painted. Professional painters in Ottawa will fix any flaws in your walls and clean them before lifting their rollers. This ensures a smooth, long-lasting finish. If you’re having the exterior of your building painting, the surfaces should be power washed beforehand.

Drywall repair

Minor drywall repair is another important step in preparing your walls for paint. It’s a waste of time, energy, and money to paint damaged interior walls. That’s why professional painters will repair and patch the drywall before beginning. The new topcoat may flake off if the drywall is not repaired first. Furthermore, the existing damage will likely remain visible, and your walls will have aesthetic flaws even after a new paint job.

Power washing

The siding or stucco on the exterior of your building cannot be repainted unless it is first cleaned. Consequently, power washing is an essential first step. It removes algae, grime, dirt, and mould that builds up over time. Exterior paint can then be applied to this clean and smooth surface. The end result looks better and lasts longer.

Colour consultation

Picking the perfect colour for your home or business is challenging. After all, you’ll be looking at this colour every day! Plus, the colour of your walls helps set the tone for your daily life. If you’re having your business painted, then the colour should make a positive and welcoming first impression with clients. So no matter your situation, colour selection is an important decision.

Some painting companies in Ottawa offer colour consultations to help you make the right choice. With their design expertise, a deep knowledge of colours, and an understanding of current trends, colour selection will be a breeze!

Cabinet refinishing

Is your kitchen desperate for a facelift… but you’re reluctant to do a complete kitchen remodel because of the cost? Even replacing your kitchen cabinets comes with a hefty price tag. Refinishing your cabinets is a great alternative. It’s much more affordable and completely updates your kitchen in less time. Your faded, drab, stained, and outdated cabinets will be transformed into something you love to look at. 

Full clean up

Once the paint job is done and the painters have gone home, the only evidence of their presence should be your beautiful new walls. You should never have to clean up your space after a painting project. That’s the responsibility of your painting company.

Professional painters understand that cleaning up is just as important as the quality of their work. After all, it’s hard to be impressed with your new walls if your home or business is a mess! Ottawa’s top painting companies will dispose of all debris from work areas, dust, sweep, vacuum, and put your room back together.

In no particular order, here are the best painters in Ottawa:

Customer Feedback

We worked with Josh and his team in June 2021 and we were very happy with our experience. We had tight timelines we needed to work with, and Josh was very accommodating and gave us good advice. His team painted the interior of our entire home, and did stucco (popcorn ceiling) removal as well. After the job was done, Josh offered to come back to do any touch ups, which was incredibly appreciated. Josh was proactive, communicative and understood how important this project was to us. We trusted him and his team in our home, and we would happily work with them again! The price was excellent, and the work was finished on time. We have already recommended his team to friends!

Our house was white and Spray Net painted it a dark grey. It looks fabulous and the house looks totally updated. The guys were very professional in their work and very respectful. They asked us about small details and what they recommended would look better. We went along with their ideas and really love the new look of our home. We would definitely recommend them. Even neighbours came to have a look. Our home is located on the St. Lawrence river and now it looks like home and not a cottage. Thank you Spray Net.

Tips for choosing a professional painting company

Check their credentials

First and foremost, you must check for credentials. For example, the painting company you hire must have valid business licensing, current liability insurance, and WCB coverage. If a company lacks these credentials, do not work with them. They are a not reputable organization. Moreover, hiring them can put you or your home or business at risk in the event of damages or worksite injuries.

Ask for references

A long list of happy past customers is the best indicator of a quality company. That’s why looking into a company’s track record is such a valuable tip. After all, it tells you a lot about their customer service, work quality, and credibility. While online reviews are readily available and easy to access, they can be framed. Consequently, you should ask the company you are considering hiring to provide contact information for three previous customers. This will give you a clear and honest picture of the company.

Three ways an experienced painting company can improve your home

Painting the interior and exterior of your home can give it a fresh new look. Nevertheless, homeowners who try to do their own painting often end up with less than stellar results. Unfortunately, this can actually reduce a home’s value. Experienced professionals, however, ensure the aesthetics and value of your home are improved with your painting investment.

Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design shares three ways their paint specialists can improve the worth and appearance of any home.

Kitchen renovation without the price tag

Forget tearing down your kitchen and rebuilding from the ground up. You can get the kitchen makeover of your dreams with professional paint and a few high-impact additions. Homeowners will save thousands of dollars on a kitchen renovation by choosing cabinet painting in Calgary over cabinet replacing. New hardware on doors and drawers is another small, inexpensive change that can have big results.

Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design has a design team to help you choose new paint colours for your cabinets and throughout your kitchen. They can also lend their expertise and craftsmanship to put in a new backsplash, and add new countertops and modern hardware to your freshly painted cabinets!

The benefits of interior paint

It’s possible to make your home feel completely brand new by adding nothing more than some well-chosen, expertly applied paint. Painters in Calgary can give your home a stunning new look without an extensive remodel — saving you time, money and stress!  New paint on your interior doors and trim alone can really transform your home’s interior spaces. Professional ceiling paint, whether sprayed and rolled or cut and rolled only, adds clean and fresh results.

Let the specialists at Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design help you with a colour scheme and decide what paint techniques to apply to your home. Their painters in Calgary will have the job done quickly and to a truly professional standard.

Exterior paint for the win

Curb appeal is important whether you’re ready to sell your home or just want it to shine. In addition, exterior paint can help protect your home from the elements and help it maintain its value.

Painting exterior doors will add charm. Painting siding or stucco to reflect a modern-day aesthetic is another option. You can also add a new colour to your decks and railings for an added boost. No matter the choice, exterior house painting in Calgary will give that much-needed facelift. For inspiration, read about exterior paint colour trends!

The paint experts at Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design will be able to visit your home and offer key suggestions to increase value and appearance.

Tips for restoring and renovating a heritage home

Older or heritage homes have certain benefits and appeals that can’t be replicated in new builds. The lasting history and charm are present throughout the home, but with age comes the need for maintenance, renovations, and sometimes restorations.

Reid Developments in Vancouver is a professional home renovation company. They share the best approach when restoring and renovating a heritage home.

Restore what gives it character

Many elements give a home its unique character, whether it’s the architecture, colour or specific features. But it also is the little details such as trim, siding, doors and flooring. Some of these elements may not be standard or even available on the market. So keeping these features and restoring them to their former look and quality is a vital part of choosing to restore. These can’t be replicated easily, so leaving those historic touches maintains the home’s historic appeal overall.

Do a home inspection

Do a home inspection if you aren’t sure where to move forward after restoring the little details. With a heritage home, there are likely some things that need replacing or updating. That could be outdated plumbing, old wiring, asbestos or old insulation. These things should be renovated to comply with modern building codes. Not only will that keep your home safe, but it’ll also help boost its efficiency and overall value.

Renovate within the style

It’s tempting to walk into a heritage home, look around, and decide the outdated layout needs gutting. The risk is that it completely strips that home of that essential character. Modernizing one space will stand out starkly against the other traditional rooms. Instead, if the kitchen space looks outdated or is too small, find a way to renovate it with a traditional look. For example, the range of colours and styles in granite countertops can easily fit a traditional space. With new cabinets, opt for a classic wood style or a pastel colour, so while it’s new, the look feels historic. Your contractor can help with these style choices so you don’t lose your home’s heritage. That is what makes it so special.

Add space as needed within style

Not all heritage homes will be large and spacious, but it can be done if you need more room. Home extensions or additions are a great way to add that much-needed space or extra room. While you can design the new addition to transition from old to new, a matched style maintains that flow. In addition, it maintains historical authenticity, which may be important to some homeowners.

Home renovations in Vancouver

Reid Developments has constructed and renovated homes for over 25 years. Their work has consistently showcased quality and attention to detail at every step of a building or home renovation project. Their team has done everything from sleek, modernized designs to heritage restorations. If you’re looking for a trustworthy contractor that provides quality results and friendly customer service, start with Reid Developments.
