Step 2: Quoting
After Robert has taken the first time measurements he returns to the office and gives his measurements to the office staff to start your quote for you. When the quote is finished he will review it and make sure everything is correct then a member of the office staff will contact you to make an appointment to come into the showroom to sit down with Robert and go over the quote with you. We do not hassle you to make decision at that moment. You can take your time and contact us when you are ready.

Step 3: Choosing the Door Style You Would Like
 We give you different options in the quote so you can see what all you can do with your project. When you come into the showroom you will see all the different styles of doors we have. We allow customers to take our sample doors home with them so they can see how the doors themselves would look. (You do not have to choose a color at this time if you don't want to. That will come at a later step) After you have decided witch options you would like then you can contact us and we will make an invoice for you to look over and approve.

Step 4: Ordering
After you have looked over and approved the invoice we will come back out to take final measurements and order the style doors you selected. After we place the order for the doors they should arrive in 3-4 weeks.

Step 5: Choosing a Color
When the doors arrived they are in "Raw Form." We will contact you to schedule a time for you to come into the showroom and choose a color (if you haven't already). We do all the finishing in our shop so once you have chosen a color we will apply it to a sample door for you to approve.

Normally after you choose your color you will then choose the hardware you would like. We have hundreds of different styles of hardware you can choose from and our office staff will sit down with you in the showroom and help you pick out the design you like. We will then order the hardware for you.

Step -By- Step Wood Finishing


Wood finishing is the process of embellishing and/or protecting the surface of a wooden material



STEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR DOOR
First you have to choose the style door that you want.
The door will come in what’s known as “Raw Form” 
 
 
 
 
STEP 2: SANDING 
 The process starts with surface preparation, either by sanding by hand (typically using a sanding block or power sander), scraping, or planing. Imperfections or nail holes on the surface may be filled using wood putty or pores may be filled using wood filler.  



STEP 3: TIME TO ADD COLOR
After the door is sanded we apply an oil based stain to the door. The next layer will be a clear coat or sealer. After this is applied then we will go and sand down any rough spots.



STEP 4: DETAILS
After we sand down all the rough spots 2 coats of toner will be added and then we can add glaze if customer wants more color in the doors. In this process we use a gel glaze and follow all of the edges of the door.  






STEP 5: FINAL TOUCH
After all the details you want are added then it’s time to add the final clear coat to seal it all in.






If you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate to leave us a message!

Step -By- Step Custom Entertainment Center

Follow us as we go step by step in showing you the process of building a custom entertainment center


STEP 1: FIND THE SPACE WHERE THE ENTERTAINMENT CENTER WILL GO

This is the before shot of the Living Room. As you can see, they had a fireplace and built in shelves to start with.
 STEP 2: START FROM THE GROUND UP.

We start with building the base cabinets of the entertainment center. We use hard maple wood so it is sturdy and will last a long time.
 STEP 3: DOORS

Next we add doors and molding to the base to get the feel of what the entertainment center is going to look like at the end. After they are fitted, they are removed for staining and will be placed back on during the installment.
 STEP 4: SHELVING

Time to move up! Now its time to start the foundation of the shelving. The shelves themselves will be measured and painted and will be put in during the installment.
 STEP 5: TOP AND BACK

Now its starting to look like an entertainment center! The space for the T.V. is now built in and some extra storage above. Also the top and back are added to complete the foundation of the entertainment center.
 STEP 6: DETAILS

After the foundation is completed you can start adding the small details the crown and the molding. After all the molding is finished everything is taken apart and stained. 
 STEP 7: INSTALLMENT

We removed all the built-in shelving and fireplace. We also took the wall back to accommodate the new entertainment center. Then ,like in the build, we started from the base.






 STEP 8: WIRING

As you can see, we are following the same steps as the build. Its best to do all the wiring for any electronics that will be on the entertainment center before adding shelves and doors. 

STEP 9 : SHELVING AND DOORS

We're almost done! Now it's time to put the shelves and doors back on. You can start putting all your things on the shelves and in the cabinets.
STEP 10: FINISHING TOUCHES 

Complete the look with glass doors and lighting above the T.V. Now your custom entertainment center is completed and ready for you to enjoy!!

Warming the Heart of The Home

 Published in Naples News
By: Sam Moser
When Sally and Joel
Germond bought in the
Vineyards seven years
ago, they were faced with the same
issues that everyone deals with when
buying a residence that’s had previous
owners. The 1996 coach home
needed attention. Wall-to-wall blue
was cold and overbearing, and the
entire interior was, well, dated. Sally,
an interior designer and Realtor of
high-end property in Wisconsin,
went to work. To instill character,
she used warm tones and antiques
from her northern home.
An avid cook, she wanted her
kitchen to be as attractive as the
rest of the home. She was almost
sure that she wanted her cabinets
refaced, similar to what she had done
in Wisconsin.
“I’m sure that more people
would look into refacing if they
understood it,” she says. “I’d tried
it 10 years ago and my kitchen was
just gorgeous.”
She did look into the cost of
new cabinets, but found that getting
an entirely new kitchen would be
prohibitively expensive and take
much longer. She also discovered
that, despite advertisements to the
contrary, not many kitchen companies
are in the refacing business.
Most have relationships with cabinet
manufacturers and make money on
cabinets.
After considering all of the variables,
the Germonds selected Robert
Weeks, owner of Custom Cabinet
Refacing of Naples and master wood
craftsman.
“For me, it wasn’t the price as
much as that I felt comfortable with
him,” she explains.
The Germonds visited the showroom
of Custom Cabinet Refacing
of Naples and selected maple doors
with a rich pecan finish.
Refacing is not for everyone.
When the kitchen or bathroom layout
will benefit from modification,
or when the cabinet boxes are made
of inferior product and warping or
falling apart, the cabinets need to
come out. If the cabinets are small
and space for expansion exists, new
cabinets might be in order. Refacing
will not increase storage space when
completed by most cabinet companies,
but when you’re working with
a master craftsman, modifications
go hand-in-hand with the project.
Improvement of cabinet and kitchen
functionality is a major component
of the service provided by Custom
Cabinet Refacing of Naples.
In addition to adding new solid
wood doors and drawer fronts,
Weeks refaced around the existing
cabinetry using wood veneer backed
by strong 3M adhesive. Weeks suggested
and the Germonds agreed
that cabinetry modifications would
eliminate the cookie-cutter, straightrun
look of the original cabinetry.
By bumping up two smaller upper
cabinets to give the room’s cabinetry
a handcrafted look, he was able to
increase cabinet space. He found
room to add a cabinet. Traditional
style came in the form of molding
throughout. Roll-out drawers for
pots and pans were added to lower
cabinets to improve the functionality
of the space. In four days, the project
was complete.
Refacing is a smart solution
when the layout does not need to be
changed. Many estate homes built by
reputable builders feature kitchens
designed with sensible layouts that
simply become dated over time.
Custom Cabinet Refacing of Naples
works in single-family homes in the
area’s finest communities.
Weeks, a third-generation carpenter,
learned the trade from his
grandfather, who opened Weeks
Cabinets & Millwork in St. George,
South Carolina in 1934. His storefront
— the largest custom cabinet
refacing showroom in Southwest
Florida — displays doors finished
with custom detail such as inlay,
exotic woods, hand-rubbed finishes
and a wide variety of hardware and
glass for cabinet doors, tile for backsplashes
and gorgeous granite. In
addition to remodeling and custom
carpentry, the company offers turnkey
service with appliances.
The Germonds are pleased with
their kitchen. “I praise his work all of
the time,” Sally says. “Robert does
a fabulous job.”

LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE

BY SAM MOSER 
Published in Naples News

Sharon Hanson faced a dilemma recently. She wanted to replace the dated cabinetry in her kitchen at The Strand in Naples. She was happy with her Corian countertops. The overall kitchen was fine, but her cabinet doors were worn and scratched, and she was not fond of the light-toned wood.
After seeing a few estimates, she realized that she did not need to pay the price for a complete overhaul. “At first I wanted new cabinets,” she admits. “For the quality that I wanted, though, it would have cost $40,000.”
Hanson opted for a solution that many homeowners are choosing. She decided to reface her existing cabinets, and selected Custom Cabinet Refacing of Naples, a division of 3rd Generation Construction, to do the work. Robert Weeks, owner, completed the job in three days. For $13,000, she received the dark wood cabinets of her dreams. Weeks stained the cabinet doors to match her reproduction antique dining room table. In addition to the solid wood doors and drawer fronts, he refaced around the existing cabinetry using wood veneer backed by strong 3M adhesive. He refaced the kitchen’s island and added wood molding throughout.
Refacing is not for everyone. When the kitchen or bathroom layout will benefit from modification, or when the cabinet boxes are made of inferior product and warping or falling apart, the cabinets need to come out. If the cabinets are small and space for expansion exists, new cabinets might be in order. Refacing will not increase storage space with most cabinet companies, but when you’re working with a master craftsman, modifications go hand-in-hand with the project. Improvement of cabinet and kitchen functionality is a major component of the service provided by Custom Cabinet Refacing of Naples.
Refacing is a smart solution when the layout really cannot be changed. Many kitchens in high-rise condominium buildings, for instance, are built to take advantage of every square inch of space. In such a residence, refacing is sensible because it gives new life to a dated room and saves time. Even better, when done correctly, refacing should not affect existing floor tile, walls or countertops. Within days, a traditional design can be contemporary, and a dreary space can be transformed.
“Refacing causes less pain,” explains Weeks. “When you go in and tear everything out, somebody is without a kitchen for days and even weeks while many steps are completed and you wait for parts to be delivered. With a complete remodel, many people have to move out until it’s done. Not to mention, you’ll never find the high-quality doors that I offer in the factory-made cabinets sold at the big-name home centers.”
Weeks, a third-generation carpenter, learned the trade from his grandfather, who opened Weeks Cabinets & Millwork in St. George, South Carolina in 1934. His storefront — the largest custom cabinet refacing showroom in Southwest Florida — displays doors finished with custom detail such as inlay, exotic woods, hand-rubbed finishes and a wide variety of hardware and glass for cabinet doors, tile for backsplashes and gorgeous granite. In addition to remodeling and custom carpentry, the company offers turn-key service with appliances.
More and more, Weeks finds that refacing pleases a wide audience. In addition to those that cannot fathom being without a kitchen for even one week, refacing is attractive to the environmentally-conscious. His website, www.3rdgenconst.com, shows a row of cabinet boxes in a landfill. By changing out just doors and drawers in a 20 linear-foot run of cabinetry, he estimates that approximately 2,400 pounds of waste, which includes drywall and other material torn out along with a complete remodel, is spared from a landfill.
Sharon Hanson did her homework up front and is pleased with the result. “You really cannot tell that I’ve kept the same cabinets,” she says. “This looks like a brand new kitchen. It’s gorgeous.”

What is Cabinet Refacing?

Cabinet Refacing is an inexpensive, Eco-friendly way of re-doing your kitchen or bathroom cabinets the way you want to do it! Instead of ripping out the entire cabinet itself, all you have to do to is replace the doors, drawers fronts and add veneer (a thin piece of wood that goes on all of the exposed pieces of cabinet). Normally it cost about half the price of completely rebuilding cabinets and you still get that breathtaking room that you always dreamed of!

And guess what? That's what we do!
