“Painting kitchen cabinetry or bookshelves is the quickest, most inexpensive way of upgrading your home,” said NAP owner, Peter Berke. “There’s no construction, no demolition. Not even a mess in your kitchen. The way we do it, we remove the cabinetry and shelves and bring it to our shop. With the superior products we use, there is no need for stripping either.”

Our crew is experienced. We have one crew member in our shop dedicated to the project, lightly sanding the cabinet, applying two coats of bonding primer and two finish coats. Then we’ll have one or two other crew members at your home painting the built-in part of the cabinetry that can’t be removed. That is the least amount of investment and the biggest bang for your buck.”

For a typical house, NAP can usually turn them around in one week. All you have to do is update with a new color and new hardware. Hinges and knobs are easy to replace and you can always change the location of the knobs. If you do buy new hardware (depending on whether it is going in the exact same spot as the old hardware) we can do that for you—for no additional cost.
