Ask RiotACT: Peeling vinyl wrap and kitchen resurfacing

Join the conversation

Ask RiotACT
Hi Rioters.

The vinyl wrap in my kitchen is peeling off the cupboard doors, pantry door etc. Has anyone had the same problem? Has anyone had the vinyl wrap removed and the underlying fibreboard resurfaced? If so, can you recommend the company that did it?

When I was looking at kitchens, a friend warned me to keep away from vinyl wrap cupboards, telling me they peel. How long did this take?

I have heard 50/50 views from different kitchen companies in Canberra. Two of the better ones (Crown and Kitchen company) pretty much only do vinyl. Those that do 2 pak get it done in Sydney. Apparently Canberra painters are atrocious.

My dad’s kitchen was done about 15 years ago in vinyl wrap. No peeling whatsoever. My mum’s is about the same age, maybe older and it has peeled, it is on the coast though.

Regardless, I think you need to chose a good brand like Duratech to minimise chances of issues.
