Cabinet Staining

Cabinet Staining Professionals

To successfully stain cabinetry, it is best to start with previously unfinished surfaces. If your current cabinetry is painted, we do not recommend stripping to attempt staining for natural grain appearance. If your current cabinetry is stained, Empire is able to re-stain or clear-coat after assessment. Sometimes all your cabinets require is a fresh clear-coat to recondition and extend longevity. This is achievable in most cases.

Cabinetry staining varies in success rate. As such, Empire collects a door to perform a sample test once a proposal is accepted. The reason for varying success is due to how the wood grain absorbed the first clear-coat or stain application. Wood is a porous surface and does not evenly absorb. When sanding to prepare the surface for fresh stain or clear-coat application, this can reveal blotchiness inherent to the wood grain due to the first finish process.

If your sample test reveals any possible issues, we will not recommend that finishing method. Instead, painting would be the suggested finish option.
