Chagrin Home Improvements is moving…indoors, that is. That’s right, this premier deck restoration and painting business is taking its talents to a kitchen near you. And if you’re looking for a way to update your kitchen or laundry room that offers a refreshed and revitalized space at a fraction of the cost of a renovation, a cabinet painting from Chagrin Home Improvements is the process for you.


“Often the cabinets are in good condition, but the color or outdated look bothers you and it’s hard to justify the cost of new ones,” owner Joe Jacobs says. “Chagrin Home Improvements offers the solution that will save you the money, time and disruption involved with a full remodel and give you the kitchen of your dreams in less than a week.”

Chagrin Home Improvements focuses on the areas of the home that are well-loved, certainly well-used, and when they’re out of commission it disrupts the entire flow of the family. Kitchens and decks are certainly those spaces.

“All renovations are messy and disruptive, not to mention very expensive,” Joe says. “And cabinets are usually the most expensive thing to replace and sometimes it’s just not necessary. Why rip them out and replace them with cabinets that might even be a lower quality product than what you already have? Our process updates your cabinets and revitalizes the space quickly and efficiently with a big return on your investment.”

The Chagrin Home Improvements cabinet painting process begins with a visit to your home for an assessment of the cabinets and their condition, then owner Joe Jacobs gets back to you with a written quote. During the process, you have full use of the space.

Then comes the removal of the cabinet doors, drawers and hardware, which is all cataloged to ensure it’s all put back in the right place. Cabinets doors and drawers are then taken to the facility in Chagrin Falls.

“It’s here that we begin the critical prep process of filling any cracks or holes before sanding every inch to a smooth finish, cleaning them so there’s not a speck of dust or residue, then applying a premium primer and spraying two coats of paint for a flawless finish,” explains Joe. “While the doors are being painted off-site, a crew member is painting the cabinet boxes in your home using the same process for an identical finish.”

Once the cabinet doors are reattached, your hardware is reattached or updated hardware will complete the new look and change the style of your whole space.

“You’ll have the use of your kitchen every day,” Joe says. “There’s minimal dust and we keep things neat. I don’t think you can say that about any renovation project.”

So, if you’re thinking about a kitchen or laundry renovation, take a good look at your cabinets. Often the ones you have are higher quality than what you can buy today but you don’t love the look. Give Chagrin Home Improvements a call, get a quote for revitalizing your cabinets and compare for yourself with the cost of purchasing new ones. I did in my home and the difference was tens of thousands of dollars and the “new” cabinets look amazing.
