Does Cabinet Paint Chip?

All Paint Chips

Cabinet painting is no different to auto body work. In order for paint to stick and feel smooth, surfaces should always be prepared properly. After 40 years in the painting business we have learned one thing that sets our work apart from others, paint chips far less, adheres to a surface much better when old finishes are sanded back down to clean wood grain again.

Before Painting, Priming or Undercoating

⚠️ When is comes to kitchen cabinet painting, it is very important wood surfaces are extremely clean and porous (never shinny). The deeper paint gets absorbed into wood, the less chance paint will chip or be as noticeable. See flood coating

This is particularly important when painting darker wood cabinets light colours or shades of white.

To increase durability, PAINTING Guys sand everything down to the wood prior or priming and painting. Sanding greatly improves paint adhesion and overall look of everything.

We stay away from a lacquer spray finish because it is like a plastic coating, scratches easily and it will crack and chip at the corner joints with expansion.

Benjamin Moore Acrylic paints are the best choice when it comes to kitchen cabinet paint because they are extremely durable, none yellowing, flexible and come in any colour you desire.
