Kitchen cabinet refacing recommendations


Time to update my 25 year old kitchen. About 30 custom cabinets and I'm looking at refacing instead of replacement since there is a new stone countertop and sink. I have no refacing experience but did redo another kitchen with box store cabinets so I don't feel totally lame. Sure looks easy (as usual) looking at the how-to web sites.
The existing frames seem solid.
Connundrum # 1 - How do I choose a material supplier? I find many material suppliers on the web cant find any independent Angie's List type of 'good guys' or 'bad guys' or .....
I'm hoping to garner some supplier recommendations or if that is verboten, any link to where I might find same.
BTW - I've been instructed by my significant other that the existing oak in fruitwood must turn to something lighter in Maple. So wood, not RTF or such. I may be instructed to paint the boxes instead of veneer but only time will tell. I appreciate any comments and input. thanx

Networking is best way to find a good material supplier. There are lots of suppliers, you can find through Google and telephone directory. You should go through reviews and compare with their competitors. It will help to make you right decision.

thanx for the response. Yes, I would like to buy new doors and drawers and my question is - How do I get unbiased ratings from the myriad of suppliers I can find on the web? As one would expect, each supplier site I visit includes rave reviews of positive experiences.
