Ottawa Cabinet Painting provides a six (6) year warranty on our workmanship.  If you need to report a warranty issue please contact us by email ( or by calling (613) 722-1059. 

It takes a full 30 days for your cabinets to fully cure and harden. You will be provided instructions on how to care for your cabinets during this first 30 days. Warranty becomes void if these steps are not followed during the first 30 days.

The warranty will be effective if, and only if, the customer:

– Pays Ottawa Cabinet Painting in full.
– Retains the original contract paperwork
– Retains the original receipt of payment
– Follows the first 30 day “cabinet care plan”

If paint failure appears due to our negligence, we will supply labour at no cost and spray the areas needing repair.



Ottawa Cabinet Painting will repair areas where peeling, flaking or blistering have occurred.  Scratches or large chips are not covered because we have no way to control how you use your cabinets. Even though your painted cabinets are extremely durable, they are obviously not 100% scratch resistant. Pets, children, items banged against cabinets, etc. are things out of our control that can contribute to scratches & chips.

The 6 year warranty is for sprayed cabinets, this means that Ottawa Cabinet Painting will respray doors, drawers, light valances, crowns and gable ends that can be brought back to our spray shop.

Doors, drawers, light valances, crowns, and gable ends requiring repairs must be asked for, and have any repairs quoted for, and listed on the final invoice for any warranty to be implied or valid on said repairs. We are not responsible for any workmanship or physical defects present prior to the pickup of said items. This includes but is not limited to dings, dents, scratches, over sanding, under sanding, machine marks, wood chip out, knots, type of material used in construction, quality of assembly, and anything else as it relates to the expansion & contraction of various woods.

The warranty covers labour only – paint & primer charges are extra. The client will supply paint, primer, and any materials required to facilitate the necessary repairs.

Touch up paint is provided for fixed unremovable items/cabinets. These unremovable pieces are not covered under this warranty.

Wood panel doors expand and contract over time due to changes in humidity.  Sometimes hairline cracks can develop where the doors are glued together. Since this is a natural occurrence our warranty does not cover this.

Only the specific areas that have issues will be fixed and repairs are only completed in accordance with the description of the original work order.

Due to circumstances or conditions that may be beyond our control, like but not limited to the current condition (see list below) of any given piece to be sprayed or resprayed, the workmanship warranty is limited from the date of delivery of sprayed items unless otherwise expressed in writing at the time of by Ottawa Cabinet Painting.
