Default kitchen cabinets

I have a client that wants me to fix her kitchen cabinets. She had them painted by a painting contractor previously and they are already starting to chip. Iím trying to figure out an option that would give her maximum durability. Someone suggested I use a semi gloss, let it dry and wait a week. Return to the job and apply a clear coat to give it extra durability. Has anyone tried this? What type of clear coat would you suggest? Thanks for reading.

Thanks for the advise. Would you still need to prime...the previous painter primed and used two semigloss top coats. Where do you get XIM uma...

If they're chipping it's because the bond between the new coating and the lacquer underneath isn't good enough. Applying another coating overtop won't help since the underlying coating is the problem.

You can do a band-aid fix but i'd be sure your client knew this going in, otherwise your butt will be on the line for the last guys mistakes.

The correct fix is to rip out the doors and put new ones in - properly finished. But since this is likely not-an-option then the bandaid is about all you can do.

You can strip them, but it'd probably be cheaper to get new doors.

UMA is available through any good paint store. I think Howden is the distributor in Ontario

Had a similar problem not long ago but it was with some int.trim.chipped easy and had lost its intial bond.Scuff sanded,appllied Zinseer Peelstop to lock it in and to stablelize it,applied a bonding primer,followed up with enamel topcoats.Cabinetcoat for your topcoat a modifed latex urethane coating would be up your alley!

Try out Hollandlac paint its durable. We had applied this 2 1/2 years ago and no chips yet. This type of paint would look good and royal at the kitchen cabinets.

When you talk about affordable kitchen cabinets, refacing is one of the best and the quickest form of changing your looks inside your kitchen. Your old Kitchen Cabinet Design could be made new and stylish in many ways. One of the most common methods is kitchen cabinet refacing which doesnít really address your organizational issues. Hollandlac paint is one which would give a shiny look to your cabinets.

Can you scrape the paint off the cabinets everywhere with your finger or a coin; or are the cabinets just chipping in specific places? Also, what type of paint did the last contractor apply? Are the cabinets a solid color like white or black; or are they glazed, crackled or any other type of specialty finish? Pics would help.

They are a great way to save big when remodeling or working with new construction. However, there are other factors just as important as getting kitchen cabinets wholesale when your budget is tight.
