Cardinal began in in 1975 as a family-owned general home contracting business. We were three relatives working in a small garage space in the Kensington section of Philadelphia but within our first six months of operation, we were subcontracted to do “re-facing” work. Over the next few years we realized that we could produce a better quality product that what we currently being subcontracted to install. We revised our business model to improve the re-facing process by using a wood screw, no-glue installation and three-quarter inch solid wood framing, quarter inch side paneling and bottoms. The end result was wrapping new cabinets around your existing ones. Our goal was to provide kitchen spaces without the large budget needed at the time for a full demolition and rebuild.
In the 1980s, we moved our base of operations to Bristol Township, Pennsylvania as we began to expand our business to serve clientele all over the Delaware Valley, all over Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, and Delaware Counties, Philadelphia, South Jersey, and Northern Delaware. Our satisfied kitchen customers called asking for our help designing custom pieces for their home beyond the kitchen. Over time, we’ve expanded our offerings in custom home furnishings, meeting the expanding needs and preferences of our customers.
In the mid-1990s, customers were interested in full kitchen renovations in addition to our re-facing and custom furniture offerings and we added this to our repertoire.
Today, Cardinal has its home in Bensalem, Pennsylvania in a larger shop to better accommodate our custom cabinetry work. Our satisfied customers provide a large referral business to keep us busy. We are always willing to provide references to our future customers so they can feel at ease, knowing that Cardinal is the right company for them. We take care of our customers by providing the personal attention that everyone desires.
