Caulking of Cabinet Doors
Posted Mar 16, 2018
Karen’s Company loves to paint kitchen cabinets!
One of the steps that we do on about 50% of the cabinets that we paint is to caulk the seam between the door panel and trim. The idea is to make the caulking smooth, consistently even in the roundness of its cove, no gaps or ridges, and also to blend in seamlessly with the grain on the panels. This is a fairly tedious process and over the years we have developed a nice system using buckets of water, clean and soft rags and several tools for an excellent end result!
Check out the video of Danielle at our spray shop caulking one side of a medium sized kitchen cabinet door. Keep in mind that this step has to be repeated 4 times on each door! Then after the caulking has dried we double check every door and sometimes have to repeat the process a second time to fill in any voids that have opened up when the caulking dried, check for ridges and to make sure there are no little caulking greebly bits stuck anywhere.
This detail makes even cabinets with ugly seams look great! Our team strives to make the cabinet doors as perfect as possible every step of the way!
