Having the kitchen cabinets resurfaced seems like a less expensive way to give an outdated kitchen an entirely new look. Unfortunately, it does not always work out as promised. Instead, the replacement parts are manufactured, shipped to the customer and installed by a subcontractor selected by the company who has the customer’s money. When the resurfaced cabinets begin to delaminate, no one wants to accept responsibility. This is not a cheap project and can end up costing more than new cabinets would have, without having had the benefit of being able to change the cabinet layout.
There are a number of problems that can occur with resurfaced cabinets. Delamination can happen in only a few months, typically starting at ‘starved’ joints. This occurs when the glue line is not continuous between the wood members, leaving a very weak joint. Improper clamping pressure and glue consistency are the primary causes. While the glue manufacturer may have changed his formula, rushing the assembly time is more likely to result in starved joints. In addition, moisture causes wood to swell; lack of moisture control during panel manufacture also leads to weak joints that easily delaminate. Anyone who purchased defective cabinet resurfacing products should consult an experienced Product Liability Attorney in Wichita.
