Hi , this is Dan,
I was formerly in the garment manufacturing business with about 75 employees. Circumstances changed and I had to learn a new trade. Several friends were rebuilding and refinishing pianos, so they helped me out of a bad time and I Iearned how to refinish on very expensive pianos.
I applied those skills to refinishing kitchen cabinets which are much easier to handle. We use water borne finishes which are environmentally responsible, and of course better to spray in a house environment. Victor and I pride ourselves with being respectful of customers homes and take every precaution to protect appliances and whatever may need care.
Custom Cabinet Refinishing was established in 2001 and has been growing every year. To date we have not had a call back as the product we are using works well in a kitchen environment.
Our customers are pleasantly surprised that we leave a kitchen looking clean and actually better than new. Today's kitchen manufacturers have very modern spray booths and can get a great looking result with one coat of sealer and one top coat of finish. We have to work a little harder dealing with old cabinets and have to strip and sand them clean to prep properly. After prepping , depending on whether we are staining or painting, we spray 3 coats of sealer and 4 topcoats. Durability , exceeds industry standards, and we are not done with a project until our customers are completely satisfied. That is evidenced by the reviews , (all of which were legitimate customers) that you can see on our website. We look forward to including you on our list of satisfied customers, so please give us a call.
Have a great day,
About Custom Cabinet Refinishing
Custom Cabinet Refinishing has been in business since 2002. For several years prior to that we refinished piano's, antiques, all sorts of furniture and cabinets. Since 2002 we have focused our attention on kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities as the name indicates.
Custom Cabinet Refinishing is just as the name indicates. We refinish kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities are primarily our main focus. Kitchen cabinets are often structurally sound but require a face lift after years of use. The kitchen is where the most activity takes place in a home, and of course it's where the most wear and tear occurs of its surfaces.
Replacing or refacing your kitchen cabinets can be quite an expensive project. Refinishing, by comparison, is much more economical, and the return on the investment is quite satisfying.
Custom Cabinet Refinishing uses environmentally friendly water borne finishes which are resistant to water, chemical and common kitchen spills, as well as very flexible and will not crack , chip or peal.
The finish is applied by using a high volume, low pressure spray system that allows for more material adhering to the cabinets and less over spray. By using such products we avoid the exposure to toxic solvent particles in the air, which is certainly better for us, our children and our pets.
We have been refinishing cabinets for about 15 years without a recall and without a dis-satisfied customer.
Along with wood tone stain and refinishing we also paint, glaze and make minor alterations if necessary.
It is our goal to make your old cabinets look new without your having to spend a small fortune or get a second mortgage. The money you save with refinishing can buy you a new counter top or floor and give you that new kitchen look without paying for a new kitchen.
When your home is in need of a new custom Passaic cabinet, don't forget to call Custom Cabinet Refinishing. Our experts will design the best cabinet for your specific needs and uses.

I recently contracted Custom Cabinet Refinishers to refinish our kitchen and laundry cabinet doors. I couldn’t be more pleased with their service. Dan and his associate Vic were a pleasure to deal with. They are very experienced with refinishing and I was confident all along the job would come out beautifully.
Initially Dan came to my house and provided a comprehensive estimate for refinishing the cabinets, 24 doors and the crown molding. However, since my project started during Covid 19, in order to avoid having folks come to our house - I decided to do the cabinet box frame refinishing myself. Dan provided a ton of excellent advice on how to do the sanding and apply the sanding sealer and final coating. He even provided me with the coating materials! Should you need to go to their shop, it is conveniently located right off the highway in Passaic.
It’s always a pleasure working with craftspeople that exceed your expectations. If you contract Custom Cabinet Refinishers, you’ll be ensured of a great job, too.

AMAZING JOB! Price is right and quality of work is fantastic!
They go the extra mile and most importantly KNOW what they are doing.
Don’t have your cabinets painted by some painter...
HIRE THESE GUYS!

I refinished my large kitchen in the spring of 2019. Dan and Victor were really outstanding. They are true craftsmen, and Dan gave me many suggestions which improved the flow of my kitchen which went above and beyond what he needed to do. In addition they were punctual, very clean and stayed completely on schedule and in budget. Their work was outstanding and they were a pleasure to deal with. I highly highly recommend them.

We had our oak cabinets refinished and are so happy with them. It was a pleasure to work with Dan and his employees, Victor and Kenneth.
Dan was punctual and efficient. The meetings at our house were informative and helpful.He gave us great advice. He would not settle on the color until we were satisfied. The job was completed quickly and with a minimum of disturbance to our household.
When we ran into some minor problems, ( not their fault) Dan and his crew came right away and helped us fix them.
We can’t praise them enough and would highly recommend them. Fantastic work and much less expensive than a whole new kitchen!!

Custom Cabinet Refinishing went well above and beyond my expectations. This company provides old fashioned master craftsmanship at it's finest. Every detail of the kitchen cabinet refinishing was handled personally by the owner, Dan. He faced challenges with the my kitchen that I would never even have thought of, ensuring the replacement hinges fit perfectly. He also arranged to have a matching cabinet built and worked with the cabinet maker to ensure the new matched the old. They are neat, well organized, personable and most of all, a pleasure to work with. I am unsure why there was one negative review, that person must be confused with another company. If you are thinking about having your cabinets refinished, this is the 'guy' to call. Thank you Dan and crew for a great job, completed on time, per the original estimate. I couldn't be happier with their work!!!!

Dear potential customer, if you see a negative review from a Gordon Herm please disregard. I do not know who this is and I have never had any dealing with this person. My customers tell me it may be a competitor posting what i consider slander. Hopefully google will remove this. As you can clearly see it is not consistent with other reviews. I have noticed he put similar false reviews on other business sites as well. I have no fear that this will adversely affect my business as we have built an honest and trustworthy reputation over the last 20 years. It is unfortunate that people do such things and hide behind a computer.
Integrity is what you do when no one is watching.

When Dan came over to give us an estimate to refinish our kitchen cabinets, my husband and my impression of him was that Dan was honest, fair, skilled, and knowledgeable. We hired him and found that impression to be very true - we cannot say enough good things about Custom Cabinet Refinishing. Their work was meticulous and the kitchen each day was left immaculate. We are thrilled with the results. Our 20 year old maple cabinets were painted white and the kitchen looks beautiful - the cabinets are stunning and look brand new. The price we were quoted was the price we paid. We loved the work so much that we also had them refinish the bathroom cabinets and have asked them to refinish our front door. Besides doing fantastic work they are just good and nice people - a pleasure to have around. Dan went above and beyond to make sure that we were completely satisfied with the results. We had pretty high expectations when we hired Custom Cabinet Refinishing - Dan exceeded those expectations. We very highly recommend Custom Cabinet Refinishing in Passaic.

To bad they only allow you to give 5 stars.Dan the owner Custom Cabinet Refinishing and his worker Victor were fantastic. When I remodeled my kitchen back in 2001, the person that put in my cabinets, which at that time I wanted the white pickled look, did not tell me how difficult it would be to clean and wash them. Custom Cabinet Refinishing took what I thought were disgusting cabinets and made them look like they just came out of showroom. They also were the neatest workers anyone could have asked for. There was very little dust residue from them sanding the frame. And when they came back with the doors and front of the drawers they took the time to put them on and line them up perfectly. The finishing touch was when the owner Dan went to every cabinet and polished them. He then called me in to look them over to make sure they were to my satisfaction.I could have cried they were so beautiful and I had a brand new kitchen. Finally, I would say that if anyone is looking for a miracle in their kitchen call Custom Cabinet Refinishing I promise you this, You Will Not Be Sorry.

This was our THIRD project using Dan and Custom Cabinet Refinishing. After refinishing a dining set making it look like new and finishing an unpainted cabinet bought well after our other cabinets and matching it perfectly, we contracted Dan to refinish all of our kitchen cabinets. The result is excellent. Our kitchen looks beautiful and updated. The work was done within the time frame agreed upon, at the price agreed upon, and with the outcome we had hoped for. The project was carried out neatly and with a minimum of hassle. For anyone considering using Dan and Custom Cabinet Refinishing, we highly recommend that you do so.
