The holidays are over and we’re deep into the winter months. In Northeast Ohio, that means spending a lot of time indoors staring at those outdated kitchen cabinets and dreaming about replacing them. But if that’s not in the budget, or you simply don’t want the hassle and inconvenience of a renovation, a professional cabinet painting job by Chagrin Home Improvements is your ticket to affordable, like-new cabinets you won’t recognize—and it can happen in less than one week.

Joe Jacobs, founder of Chagrin Home Improvements

“Painting cabinets is the best option for so many reasons,” owner Joe Jacobs says. “If it wasn’t, we wouldn’t have dedicated this small, family-owned-and-operated company to perfecting the process to guarantee an outcome you simply won’t believe.”


The Perfect Process

Day 1 - Joe’s crew of professional, full-time employees will disassemble and catalogue doors, drawers and hardware and take doors and drawers to their dedicated painting facility in Chagrin Falls.

Days 2, 3, and 4 - The critical prep process begins by filling any cracks or holes before sanding every inch to a smooth finish and cleaning them so there’s not a speck of dust or residue. Then a trained crew member applies a premium primer and sprays two coats of paint for a flawless finish. The process and equipment are typically used on automobiles and has been retrofitted for cabinet painting. An on-site crew member is at the same time painting the cabinet boxes in your home, using the same process for an identical finish.

Day 5 - The crew reassembles your cabinets in your home, reattaches or replaces the hardware, and cleans up. You almost won’t know anyone was ever there.

“If anyone is selling you on any type of new cabinets, what they are not telling you is there is no way of tearing out old cabinets without impacting your countertops, backsplash, sink, dishwasher, fridge, plumbing and walls,” Joe says. “Your cabinets are attached to nearly everything in your kitchen, and your quick and affordable new cabinet installation just became a much bigger, and much more expensive, project than you anticipated.”

The increased value to your home with a cabinet painting job by Chagrin Home Improvements can be achieved for a fraction of the cost of a complete renovation and completed in five days.

Chagrin Home Improvements has a state-of-the-art, spray-painting facitility in Chagrin Falls. The space has been specially designed for cabinet revitalization.

“The thing we want people to realize is the fact that we have chosen this specialty because of the value it offers our customers,” Joe says. “We believe in this process, so we have approached it like we approach everything we do here and that is with the dedication, laser-like focus, and an investment in the products and training that guarantees the best outcome. It’s that simple. If we weren’t the best, we wouldn’t do it at all.”

Joe and his crew have perfected two services: deck maintenance and staining in the outdoor months and cabinet painting in the indoor months. And every crew member is a family member or close friend.

“We all grew up together learning these trades the right way,” Joe says. “We take pride in this area and pride in our work. We’re not like other companies that do a little bit of everything. We don’t want to be OK at everything but great at nothing. We are the best at the two services we offer and work hard to improve homes, inside and out, all over Northeast Ohio.”
