Has normal wear and tear caught up with your cabinets? Are your cabinet drawers worn? Does the wood seem greasy or grimy? Our unique, comprehensive wood reconditioning process (Tune-Up) makes woodwork look like new. It works in the kitchen and throughout your home or business. Tune-Up cabinets, drawers, windowsills, mantelpieces and even antique wood! Quick and affordable, there’s no better way to revitalize your woodwork.

What is a Tune-Up?

A Tune-Up is our proprietary wood reconditioning process. We start by separating, then removing, the build-up (dirt, grease, wax, smoke and dust) from the wood’s original finish. Then we touch up and blend the areas where color may have faded and apply a special colorant. Finally, we can treat your cabinets with a special penetrating oil that restores dried-out wood fibers and/or apply an entirely fresh coat of finish. We’ll have your wood looking like new in no time!

Is wood reconditioning the right choice for me?

There are three signs your cabinets might need reconditioning: 1) There’s stubborn build-up on the wood, 2) the stain/finish has worn away or 3) there is minor damage to your cabinets. If one or more of these describe your cabinets, but they don’t need to be completely replaced, reconditioning could be the right choice for you.

Is wood reconditioning expensive?

Kitchen Tune-Up makes wood reconditioning so easy and affordable, you can make it part of your regular home maintenance. It’s the most cost-effective way to keep all your cabinetry and woodwork looking fresh and clean without unnecessary hassle and stress.

Is it messy and time consuming?

Our process keeps mess to a minimum on most projects. Wood reconditioning typically takes less than one day, which means you can freshen up your kitchen in time for that upcoming dinner party or holiday gathering.

Are there other benefits to reconditioning my cabinets?

When you recondition your cabinets, you’re doing more than just beautifying your home. You’re actually doing your part to help the environment, too! By retaining the cabinets you already have, you’re keeping them out of a landfill and no energy or materials have gone into making new ones. It’s just another great reason to give Kitchen Tune-Up a call!



  • Awesome work! Stu's guys were incredible. Extremely competent and did a masterful job. We are very excited about the quality of their work. We could not be more pleased. We absolutely want to go ahead with the cabinet restoration in the kitchen and two other bathrooms to march the great work in our master bath.

  • What appealed to you about this particular franchise? Kitchen Tune-Up offers us the best of both worlds. We are local owners so we run our own business. We also have the support, training and buying power of a national company. KTU is an excellent company. From the very start we’ve been impressed with the franchisor’s commitment to the success of their franchisees on an ongoing basis.
    Why did you decide to invest in a Kitchen Tune-Up franchise? We were looking for a way to combine Allen’s love of home improvement projects, his skills in this area, his business background and desire to run his own business. KTU met all of these requirements. We also based our decision on the feedback of the people with spoke with, the business model and our own skills and interests.
