Touching Up Cabinets
We make fixing the little things easy
Remodeling is a messy process, and occasionally your new cabinet will suffer a casualty, such as a scratch. Everybody has life's setbacks, therefore Mid Continent has a custom touch-up kit. It works effectively to hide minor dings that could happen during installation as well as those that might develop over time.
Finish/Color Touch-Up Kit
The kitchen is the central hub of most homes and, as a result, often takes a beating. Inevitably, a cabinet finish/color will be inadvertently scratched, possibly even during installation. Luckily, each Mid Continent order that includes a sink base (not applicable with vanity sink base) comes with a customer care kit that includes a fill stick and a marker/touch-up pen. Touch-up kits are also available for purchase at your local Mid Continent dealer. Be sure to have this kit handy to keep your cabinets looking beautiful.
The fill stick is similar to a crayon or putty bar and can be used to fill in nail holes, deep scratches, cuts or gouges. Simply apply the fill stick with pressure to ensure it completely fills the defect. Excess can be carefully removed and smoothed to match the surface with a plastic scraper or even an old credit card. The area should then be wiped with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth.
Use the marker/pen to repair scratches, excessive wear marks and edges where raw material is exposed such as miter joints where two pieces of moulding meet. Shake well before using. Remove the cap and simply run the tip over the defect. It may take several light coats to conceal the damage completely. Excess can be removed by lightly applying some mineral spirits on a clean, dry, lint-free cloth. Be sure to cap the pen following each use to prevent the felt tip from drying out.
