Gleam Guard is becoming well known in the area for its ability to restore old cabinetry to its former glory, saving homeowners the time, money and hassle it would have cost them to replace those cabinets. Many times, however, people forget that the Gleam Guard system also works as an excellent protective measure for new cabinetry.
“People have had this system done as early as six months after new cabinets have been installed, as a protective measure to keep the cabinets looking new and so they will not have to have their cabinets refinished or replaced later on down the road,” says Tracy Booth, owner of Gleam Guard. “Clients who have had us refinish old cabinets in a house they are selling like it so well that they have us apply Gleam Guard to the cabinets in their newly built homes. It extends the life of the cabinets dramatically.” In addition, the Gleam Guard system can be applied to woodwork throughout the home, including doors, doorjambs, paneling and baseboards.
“Once this coating is on, maintenance for your cabinets will be minimal,” Tracy explains. “We have clients who have had this on their cabinets for 18 years and it still looks great.” Clients who have the Gleam Guard system applied to their cabinetry and woodwork, never have to use oil soaps, furniture polish, waxes, cleaners or any other products on the woods, just a damp cloth.
Of course, Gleam Guard also refinishes older cabinetry and protects the wood with its proven system. According to Tracy, clients are often amazed at how easy the whole procedure is. “They do not even have to unload their cabinets,” he relates. “And since there is no sanding, no dust and no mess, the client never has to clean after we leave. We try to leave everything better than we found it.” Best of all, most jobs can be completed in only one day.
Conventional wisdom would dictate that before having any type of remodeling or redecorating work done, one should check a business’ references and its record with the Better Business Bureau. Tracy agrees with this and encourages all potential clients to check Gleam Guard’s stellar record with the Better Business Bureau, from whom Gleam Guard has received awards for outstanding record of service for the last three years. Gleam Guard is happy to provide plenty of references and testimonials from satisfied customers.
Gleam Guard goes on any imaginable cabinetry style or surface, including painted, stained or pickled. Gleam Guard’s professional technicians will custom match any color or finish.
