Profiles of Excellence: Gleam Guard

Get your kitchen gleaming again and
 restore the original beauty of your cabinets with Gleam Guard
Tracy Booth has been professionally refinishing cabinets for more than 30 years.

Everyone loves the idea of a kitchen that looks as good as it works, but thinking about the dust, disruption and cost of a full-on renovation—that’s another story.

The good news is that it is possible to get back the cabinets and millwork you love quickly, and at a fraction of the cost of a new kitchen.

“Many homeowners love the cabinets and millwork in their home, but over time, the finish has become worn or dull. They don’t want—or need—all-new cabinets, so the refinishing solution is perfect,” says Tracy Booth, owner of Gleam Guard Cabinet Refinishing.

Aging cabinets lack their original luster and can be faded from many years of use. Usually, they would have to be sanded down or just replaced completely. Gleam Guard can refinish your kitchen and bathroom cabinets without the dusty, time-intensive mess.

The key is to choose a professional with the experience to create a beautiful, lasting finish using techniques that won’t fill the air with aggravating dust particles, says Booth, who’s been professionally refinishing cabinets for more than 30 years.

Here’s how it works:

Choosing qualified refinishing professionals means you’ll get your kitchen back to the way you want it, without the cost of new cabinets—as little as $2,000 instead of $20,000 to $30,000, for example.

Gleam Guard’s cabinet refinishing service uses breakthrough technology to restore your kitchen cabinets for 70 per cent less than the cost of refacing or replacing—without the mess of sanding and toxic strippers.

You don’t need to remove old cabinets or replace door and drawer fronts. In fact, you don’t even need to empty your cupboards and drawers. “Our average prep time for customers is 10 minutes,” Booth says. And if you don’t have much to clear off your countertops, it’s even less.

The dust-free process starts with a Gleam Guard professional prepping the surface with a vigorous clean, then matching and applying the new finish. A wood floor finish provides a long-wearing result, protecting your cabinets from hazards such as water damage, grease and dust.

There’s no lengthy planning, demolition or construction period. “Our trained cabinet refinishing professionals will have your cabinets looking great and ready to go within one to two days," Booth says.
 All interior millwork can be refinished so think beyond the kitchen to your built-in bookshelves, doors, windowsills, furniture and more.

Using a process developed by founder Tracy Booth, Gleam Guard will turn back the clock on your cabinets, wood and surfaces with a dust-free, non-toxic process that creates beautiful results. With over 30 years of experience, you can be assured you will receive the outcome you’re looking for.

Gleam Guard serves Metro Vancouver, the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Southern Vancouver island.
