Has your Gilbert home recently experienced water damage from a burst pipe or leaky roof? If so, you may need to repair or replace cabinets in your bathroom or kitchen. Water can be found just about anywhere, and it can cause major damage to wood cabinets. If you wish to complete these repairs on your own, the team at Zona Restoration highly recommends you follow the three steps below. Soon you’ll have a like-new kitchen or bathroom that you can enjoy once again.

How to Repair Water-Damaged Cabinets in 3 Simple Steps

1. Inspect the Damaged Cabinets

Before you begin any kind of repair work, you need to know exactly what type of water damage your cabinets have experienced. Did a leak from the roof pour water down on your upper kitchen cabinets? Did a pipe burst under the kitchen sink, and warp the cabinet bottoms? Did a water leak damage the vanity in your powder room? Do your best to find out what parts of the cabinets need repair. This will tell you how extensive the renovation will be.

2. Create an Action Plan

After inspecting all of the damage, make a list of what needs to be repaired. Did the plywood warp on the bottom of your kitchen cabinets? Is it only the cabinet door that needs to be replaced? Can the cabinet be repaired, or is the entire structure completely waterlogged? Next, make a list of the tools and parts you need in order to replace or repair the cabinets. Be sure to include any paint or stain you may need to buy in order to cover water-damaged cabinet doors or stain brand-new cabinets.

3. Begin Making Repairs

Now that you know what needs to be repaired and you have all the tools and parts ready, you can begin with the renovations. You can choose to either begin with less complex repairs, such as sanding and painting or staining cabinet doors, or you can begin by painting, staining, and installing any new cabinets for those that needed to be replaced.
