James really transformed our kitchen! Excellent advice and high attention to detail. He really knows what he's doing. All while being extremely competitively priced.
I called twice and left messages to get a quote, but received no return
phone call initially. He called me a few days after submitting a
negative review. He is very busy, and has more work than he can keep up
with, but the quality of his work is excellent. We are signing up with
him to do our cabinets, and were very impressed with his
professionalism in manner as well as the products.
Jim just finished our cabinet re-facing and all I can say is WOW. It has exceeded our expectations. We went from 1990’s golden oak cabinets to tell-tale walnut hickory cabinets. Jim came and talked with us about the process and how long it would take. He had a whole truck full of samples of doors to look at and went through the process of explaining the difference in the samples he had. The cabinets are beautiful and it really makes it seems like all of them were replaced. He leaves the work area clean so you can cook and do things after he is done for the day. Jim is very detail oriented and made sure everything was up to his standards and really made sure every single thing was perfect before he finished the job. His work ethic is above and beyond anything else that I have seen. I would not hesitate to have him come back and do more work for us. Actually, I did mention to him that we would like to possibly get our fireplace surround redone! I would recommend Jim to anyone interested in re-facing. He is not a high pressure salesman and really listens and works within your budget.

Jim refaced the kitchen cabinets. He also built a lot of cabinetry as we changed some of the configuration of the kitchen. He has fantastic cabinet-making skills and the re-facing was equal to the work done in building the new cabinets. Originally we were contemplating re-facing the kitchen cabinets but were talked out of it by one of the kitchen contractors who said that it would cost as much to just get new cabinets. (Not true) Ultimately, we liked the shape of the kitchen and the way the cabinets worked, we just did not like the look of the cabinets. They were getting shabby and the color was rather tired. On Angie's List, we saw Reilly's Cabinet Re-facing and gave him a call. He provided an estimate and discussed functionality of what was existing and what he could build. Jim understood the vision we had and executed it beautifully. Because he did the cabinet-making on-site for a perfect fit, the job took just over 2 weeks. He even arranged for a countertop company to do our counters and returned to remove the old countertop and was there for the installation of the new countertop. Jim takes great pride in his work and is committed to doing things right the first time. He was a pleasure to work with and really understood what we wanted. The kitchen looks so much better! If you are looking for someone who delivers quality re-facing and cabinetry, call Jim Reilly!

The provider refaced my existing kitchen cabinets and provided a contractor for a new countertop. The kitchen project that Jim O'Reilly worked on went smoothly and efficiently. The project was scheduled on time as he promised. He worked neatly and explained each step along the way. I feel that Jim is trustworthy and works with accuracy and enthusiasm. The kitchen looks like a brand new kitchen. I am well pleased and would highly recommend him to others

Complete kitchen remodel including replacing some existing cabinets, refacing, new counter tops. All I can say is that in all the years of working with contractors and the like working with Jim was the best experience ever. He is extremely detail orientated, cleans up after every job (always cleaner than when he started). He is punctual and actually shows up when agreed both from the initial appointment to the very last day of completion. We had a tight budget to work on and he was more than accommodating including different counter tops than what he had proposed to help reduce the costs. The Big Box stores basically laughed us out of their stores with what we wanted to spend but I guarantee you, we have a much better kitchen than they could have ever provided for about half the cost! For the cabinets that were not worth refacing, Jim actually built custom cabinets and then laminated those. The quality was outstanding. I really can't say enough about his overall work including his work ethic, honesty, reliability and attention to detail. I would not hesitate to recommend Jim and would be more than happy to share our album on the renovations if you would like to see his work. Five star all the way round!!!

Jim recently finished re- facing our kitchen cabinets. I had
one other estimate. Jim’s estimate was a couple hundred dollars more. I
selected Jim because after talking with him, I could see his work ethic, and I
determined he was a perfectionist. I was not disappointed. He is meticulous and
met our needs. I absolutely got the right guy. The cabinets are beautiful and
make it appear that I got a whole new kitchen. Jim also gives very good advice
on helping to make the correct selection of products. He leaves the work area
completely clean after each day, so the area can be used. Jim also built me a
pantry and it is beautiful. It is customized. He met our needs. We have an Old
English Tudor home, and nothing is a straight line or a measured square. Jim
made everything fit perfectly. He is a Master and Magician in his profession. I
highly recommend Jim Reilly’s Cabinet Re- Facing.

Well, Jim just completed my kitchen the other day, and I have been doing the "HAPPY DANCE" ever since !!! I did not get other estimates from other companies as I typically do for home projects - - I just saw his before and after photos in his gallery, and read the testimonials. Now I too can sing his praises !! Let me honestly say...Jim, at Reilly's Cabinet Re-Facing is all you need. I cannot stress this enough, even if you have to wait to get him... Jim is worth the wait !! Don't waste your valuable time and money on other companies He took our typical so-so kitchen to an incredible WOW factor. It looks like we spent a ton of money to get the kitchen we always wanted. We even invited all our neighbors over to show them the new kitchen and all were amazed. Upon completion of our kitchen, we already contracted for Jim to do our main bath - need I say more !! Just get Jim at Reilly's Cabinet Re-Facing - - sign on the dotted line - - and you too can do the "HAPPY DANCE !! "

Our built-in entertainment unit was 20 some years old. Measuring 12 ft long in total, it was custom built as a laminated unit to fit the wall space of our room addition. The doors were rather plain and the hinges were starting to fail. The space for the TV could not accommodate anything larger than 32 inch diagonal, and we wanted one of the newer large screen (55 or 60" LCD TVs). We contacted several firms but no one was willing to 'rebuild' the units. We then designed all new units but got prices from $7,000 to $ 12,000. Plus demoing the existing unit meant removal of a granite counter top pass-through which contractors were not willing to guarantee against breakage which while understandable, may have added the cost of new granite to the price.
Jim Reilly said he could add all new doors, new laminate, plus rebuild the 6 ft section holding the TV so it would accommodate a 60 inch unit. Being an engineer and pseudo-handyman, I was skeptical about how this could be done. But since his price to rebuild was significantly less than all new, plus rebuilding process would not have to remove the granite, so we decided to chance it.
The results are FABULOUS! His workmanship was meticulous and the finished product looks better than new. We were able to work collaborative during the installation which enabled me to run the power and cable behind the unit as it was being rebuilt. The new doors are beautiful, even adding glass doors for an extra rich look. Jim added matching molding on top and all his door closures are of the 'soft-close' type. The work took a little longer than he first figured but that is a tribute to his thoroughness. He took the time to do everything perfectly whereas someone else may have tried to cut corners to finish.
We could not be happier with our decision and hearty recommend Jim Reilly for any type of cabinet work!

"I had my kitchen cabinets refaced by Reilly's Cabinet Refacing and was extremely pleased with the outcome. I had gotten bids from the big box stores that were extremes high-it seemed as though they were pricing the job so that I would replace the cabinets. James came to my home and had a great product line to choose from and gave me a very reasonable bid. His workmanship was excellent. I would highly recommend this company.
Karen C, Shaler Twp 2014'
I would like to say how pleased we are the
workmanship of James Reilly. James demonstrated a professional and polite
attitude and completed the work in a timely manner. He was understanding about
what we wanted and took a great deal of time working with us. James also
explained the entire process and he was very meticulous about his work. He also
took great care with cleaning up each day, so that we could still have use of
the kitchen while the work was going on. As a very satisfied customer I would
highly recommend Reilly’s Cabinet Re-facing for a job well done.

Words cannot even begin to describe the work Jim Reilly completed for my home. My husband and I purchased our 1980s fabulous home this year. While we loved the structure of the home, we knew we wanted our kitchen remodeled IMMEDIATELY. I called Jim, and he answered within the week. He took our outdated, oak cabinets, and turn the kitchen into a beautiful sanctuary for a cook/baker such as myself. Our cabinets are rich looking, attractive, and absolutely beautiful. He is truly a dedicated professional, who explained each step of the refacing process to us. Additionally, the kitchen was cleaned every day, leaving little or no dust, particles behind. There was hardly any odor, if any, left in the home. I appreciate Jim's work because it was truly customized. He was not trying to selling us something we didn't want like many of the big boxed stores, and he is very fair in pricing. Jim is truly an artist! We will definitely seek his expertise when we complete our bathrooms!

I just had my kitchen cabinets refaced by Reilly’s Cabinet Re-Facing and am extremely pleased. In a time when you’re lucky to get a response from a contractor just to get a bid, Jim Reilly has proven to be dependable, knowledgeable, and willing to work with his potential customers. From my first contact with Jim, he always responded quickly and professionally. I found him from a google search and after reading testimonials and seeing the before/after gallery, I called him for a quote. We set up an appointment and Jim showed up on time, with samples, and ready to answer any questions. He even called beforehand to reconfirm his arrival time. He was very thorough in his measurements and explaining the process, and even offered some great suggestions. In a few days, I had the quote. I had also contacted another company for a quote (who in the end never provided a quote after my calling and even approaching the owner face-to-face). This other company wanted to remove all of my cabinets and take them back to their shop to reface. Doing this would have required another company to remove the countertops, store them and then reinstall them. This not only would have increased the price, but left me with no countertops. Jim was able to do the job in place. He was very considerate in keeping any dust, etc. isolated. He always ensured there was no mess when he left for the day and left the kitchen usable. Before he completed the job, he verified that there were no flaws and that I was completely satisfied. The cabinets look absolutely amazing! It’s hard to believe they are the same cabinets. He also added panels to the island making it look much more attractive. I would definitely recommend Jim Reilly to anyone considering updating their existing cabinets.

After getting several bids, including big box retailers, we selected Jim Reilly based on professionalism, responsiveness, pricing, and deep knowledge of cabinet construction and design. We initially inquired about our kitchen and in the process showed him our bathroom--which was a more challenging design due to tub construction. Jim immediately offered creative solutions and we hired him just for the bathroom. We were so pleased we immediately signed the contract for the kitchen. He refaced our entire kitchen (40 doors/drawers) including the island--which he creatively redesigned with panels and trim work. We went from honey oak to mocha glazed white and the transformation was amazing. In the bathroom we went from honey oak to dark mocha. Jim is meticulous and takes his time to make sure everything is done perfectly. He is timely and cleans his work areas at the end of each day. We highly recommend his work.
Bowers McDonald PA 2014'
Jim did a great job with our cabinet project. He delivered on all ends, got the job done quickly, accurate and very professional. Reilly's cabinets was able to give us our dream kitchen on a budget we could afford. I was very impressed, and would highly recommend this company.
Breisinger Oakland PA 2014'
All I can say is WOW. I found Reilly's Cabinet Re-facing by a random search on Google and I am glad I did. I was searching for something really specific and James came through with Bamboo Kitchen reface that looks fantastic. All throughout the process he was very helpful and professional. We received the door samples and he installed the cabinets in a timely fashion. I would definitely recommend Reilly Cabinet Re-Facing

My husband and I had our master bath remodeled and ended up using some high-end materials and fixtures. We had a granite countertop installed, but planned to keep the cabinet since it was fairly new and in great condition. However, after the remodel was completed we weren't satisfied with the look of the cabinet. We spent about 6 months talking to various contractors and painters trying to decide what to do with it. We decided our best option was to re-face. We contacted several cabinet companies, including the big box stores. Our job was either too small or didn't make the cut on minimum price(which was ridiculous for the small job) We were very frustrated. We found James Reilly's website and called him figuring it would be the same old answer. What a surprise! He said no job was too small! He came to our home the very next week and brought many many samples of cabinet styles, materials, and colors for us to look at. He was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. No high pressure sales at any time. We were so excited when we found out that we could have our cabinet refaced with cherry wood and actually stay within our budget! We couldn't believe it! So reasonable.
Jim set up a date to do the work within the next couple weeks after all materials were in. He pretty much completed the job in one full day and the next morning for finishing touches. His work was meticulous. He was very neat about his work area and covered and protected our floors and carpets.
We were thrilled with the finished product! It is just beautiful and compliments the other high end décor in the bathroom without us having to spend a lot more money.
I can't say enough about our experience with Jim Reilly. He was very professional at all time; all contracts were specific so you were sure of what you were getting; he got back to us so quickly when we needed to contact him; he was always on time and if he was running behind he called to let us know. We highly recommend this company.

Let me start off by saying we love our kitchen. It is exactly what we had envisioned for our home. James, from Reilly's Cabinet Refacing, was professional, easy to work with and has the skill and abilities to achieve exactly what we wanted. He was even able to cover up a botched job by another contractor, and still finish our kitchen in a timely fashion. Thank you so much for creating the kitchen of our dreams. Can't wait to hire you for our laundry room!

We have just had our kitchen cabinets refaced by Reilly's.We had dark laminate which was making our small kitchen dark and dreary. Now we have a blonde maple thermofoil.It is a very natural wood look which has made an amazing difference. James did a wonderful job - very professional.He is very much a perfectionist and so easy to deal with,He also did a beautiful backsplash behind the sink. James is great at returning phone calls very quickly and does what he says he will do and when he says he'll do it.I cannot say that about all contractors. In addition his prices were more reasonable than any other quotes we got. Everyone who has seen our kitchen raves about it and thinks its real wood. If you're thinking of refacing give James a call. You won't be disappointed,we would highly recommend Reilly's Cabinet Refacing.
Judy H. Plum Boro,Pa 2013'
We were so pleased with the transformation of our kitchen cabinets. Everyone who sees the cabinets thinks they are new. James was reliable and timely which seems to be hard to get when having work done in your home today. They were very careful i.e. placing drop clothes from the front door to the kitchen and cleaned up at the end of every day. We were so happy that Riley Cabinets they going to put in our counter top in a few weeks. I would recommend Riley Cabinets to anyone! Moon Twp, PA

James took our (70's) kitchen and helped bring it up to a contemporary magical space! He was easy to work with, had good work ethic, always available to help solve issues and give good advise. He went above what we expected and was willing to take on additional needs as they arose. We would recommend James to anyone hoping to update their kitchen! Thanks James for an outstanding job!

I would like to commend James Reilly of Reilly’s Cabinet Re-facing for his personalized work in my kitchen renovation. I was not changing the kitchen layout. The structure of the old cabinets was good. I wanted to be as green as possible. James suggested refacing the old cabinets with new solid wood doors with the style of my choosing. James then veneered the old cabinet boxes. I chose my own hardware. The change is remarkable. People who have seen the new cabinets cannot believe they are not completely new. James’ work is impeccable. He is respectful of his work surroundings. James Reilly makes it a point to make his customer happy. I would recommend that you talk with James Reilly before you begin your kitchen remodel and replace your kitchen cabinets. The big box stores cannot match the service James provided at a competitive price.
Sincerely, Cindy K. PGH, 2012'
Just the work we wanted, on our budget,on our schedule. James was great to work with. He knows his business.If you're in the Pittsburgh area consider Reilly's Cabinet Refacing.
Scot Washington, PA 2012'
Reilly's Cabinet Refacing did an EXCELLENT job in refacing my kitchen from a slightly outdated, bland color to a gorgeous, modern kitchen done exactly to my specifications including full refacing of cabinet doors, custom cutouts in an island for a new wine cooler, custom modifications to fit new appliances, custom lamination of a roll top appliance door and installation of glass tile back splash which required detailed cutting work. It is clear that they have integrity and the desire to get the job done right no matter what it takes. I showed them a photo from a magazine and they recreated the look for me at an extremely fair price. A much better price than anyone else I talked to including Lowe's and Home Depot. I doubt I would have gotten the personalized service from the large stores and definitely would have paid a lot more. I absolutely recommend Reilly's Cabinet Refacing.
