Thermofoil Cabinet Door Repair Considerations
Thermofoil is a material made by fusing a thin layer of vinyl onto the surface of medium-density fiberboard (MDF) or similar materials using heat and pressure. From cabinet doors to drawers, this material is used to create a sleek, uniform appearance. Thermofoil cabinets are popular due to their smooth finish and affordability compared to solid wood.
However, over time, thermofoil cabinets may experience some issues that may require repair.

Wherever You Are, Kitchen Cabinet Guys Are Ready to Help You with:
Issues of Peeling and Delamination
Thermofoil cabinets frequently face the problem of peeling or delamination, specifically around areas that are regularly subjected to heat, such as near the oven or dishwasher.
Problems with Thermofoil Bubbling
Exposure to excessive heat can cause Thermofoil to discolor or warp, leading to an issue commonly known as 'bubbling.'
Instances of Chipping and Scratching
Thermofoil can chip or scratch, particularly at the edges or in heavily-used areas.
The Issue of Yellowing
White Thermofoil can show signs of yellowing over time. This often happens due to prolonged exposure to light and heat.

Recently got my kitchen updated. They were oak and got it refaced to white. Andrei was very knowledgeable and he did a great job and the results were top notch. Love our new kitchen. Most importantly there was no harsh chemicals or solvents used unlike in spray painting, which ensured there wasn’t any VOC to deal with.
These guys used vinyl laminate over my old laundry room cabinet doors. It came out awesome. Small project but saved a lot of money. They laminated the door front and I matched and painted the boxes. Interesting process. Looks perfect. Very responsive and professional. Thinking about doing the whole kitchen now.
They did an unbelievable job transforming my kitchen!!! I did research for years and could not find what I wanted or could afford. I finally found this company and it’s beyond all my expectations! During these times, saving money is so important, so this was the smart way to go!! So Happy!!!

Is it possible to restore thermofoil cabinet doors?
Indeed, thermofoil cabinet doors can be restored. Here at Kitchen Cabinet Guys, we utilize a unique method, not merely repairing but transforming your cabinets. We remove the old, damaged thermofoil, prepare the surface, apply a high-quality adhesive, and then affix a new, more durable thermofoil layer. This fix gives your old cabinets a fresh, modern appearance.
How are thermofoil kitchen cabinets transformed?
At Kitchen Cabinet Guys, our process for revitalizing thermofoil kitchen cabinets involves more than just repairs. We meticulously remove the damaged thermofoil, prepare the underlying surface, and apply a cutting-edge adhesive before adding a new layer of thermofoil. This innovative approach turns your aged cabinets into practically new ones. Remember, Kitchen Cabinet Guys only work with modern 3D laminate, also known as rigid thermofoil - it isn't that old thin vinyl material that was popular years ago. You can learn more about our materials and technology here.
What's the cost of restoring thermofoil cabinet doors versus replacing them?
Restoring thermofoil cabinets with Kitchen Cabinet Guys is often significantly more affordable than a full cabinet replacement. While replacement costs can range from $10,000 to $20,000 or more, our restoration process can cost between $2,000 to $9,000, depending on the size and details of your kitchen. This allows for a beautifully revamped kitchen that aligns with your budget without compromising on quality, something that homeowners love.
Can thermofoil be patched?
While patching thermofoil is a possible solution, we at Kitchen Cabinet Guys offer an innovative alternative. We replace the old thermofoil altogether, ensuring that the color matches uniformly and preventing any unsightly patched areas. Our process provides a more cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing outcome.
What is the optimal adhesive for thermofoil restoration?
While there are numerous adhesives available, our preferred choice is a modern, eco-friendly adhesive that's highly durable. This adhesive is engineered to withstand temperature fluctuations in a kitchen, ensuring the longevity of your cabinets.
How do you revamp thermofoil cabinets?
Rather than reattaching the peeling sections, our approach is more holistic. We remove the old, peeling thermofoil, apply our high-grade adhesive, and affix a new layer of thermofoil. This procedure is especially useful when the peeling is extensive. We recommend our professional services for a complete cabinet transformation.
