cabinet refacer messed up my cabinets, what do I do?

I've put a lot of time and effort into my kitchen, but I was spent and out of time, so I decided to get an experience cabinet refacer to do my cabinets.

It was a pretty straight forward job, "oak cabinets in good condition need experienced cabinet refacer to install new alder veneer." I would supply the veneer, the 3M-90 glue and the money. I found a cabinet refacer on Craigslist. He sounded experienced and confident in his abilities. Well now I'm stuck with a crappy job and I'm out $200.

I noticed, as he was laying the veneer on the fronts, that he wasn't taking the time to sand the old surface. He would spray the glue on the cabinets then on the veneer and wait about 3 minutes before applying. The underside of the cabinets is terrible. The veneer is starting to bubble and pull away from the cabinet. I'm at a loss here.

Do I have to yank all this out and start over or is any of this repairable? any other tips would be great

Forget the other answers, BBB recommendation is nonsense from an old guy and small claims court cost you more in time than the $200 you would never be able to collect because the guy would never show and pay.

So:

1) Sorry, but the veneer is going to have to be removed by someone.

2) No, not by the idiot that was clearly incompetent.

3) $200 was never gonna do it for this kind of job, $1000 probally woulda got it done right. You may be able to find someone to remove the veneer, then sand the faces, remove all the old glue and then properly resurface the face with new veneer. If you don't have enough veneer to redo, then I would spend the money on hiring a real cabinet face refinisher. Thier are millions of them out thier, based on the number of ads I get in the mailbox for this.

Good Luck.
