Multiple Cabinet Refacing
Can you reface over existing refacing? Yes, if the first layer still adheres well. December 30, 2007
We need to do a kitchen refacing. This kitchen was refaced about 6 years ago with 1/8" plywood on face and sides that is still in good condition and bonded on the frame. No delaminating issues. Can we reface over the existing, or should we remove the existing layer?

From contributor D:
You should be able to reface these cabinets without removing the previous refacing.
