Replacing your cabinets may also mean that you change the layout of your kitchen, which in a nutshell means, more money, more time and the inconvenience that sometimes comes with renovating a whole kitchen.

The Cardinal Pro Painters Difference

You want to be sure that you are making the right decision and be a discerning customer by first doing your research before acquisitioning the services of a cabinet painter – the very last thing you need when starting a project of this nature is to be left with a half done and sloppy job that will depress you for a long time.

Efficiency also matters when it comes to painting a kitchen because unlike any other room, the kitchen is the main hub and the most important area in any home. Cardinal Pro Painters has the experience to get the job done with speed and efficiency. We are skilled at completing a project of this scale within no time, while maintaining a high professional standard, therefore having your kitchen back in full operation.

Hire more than a handyman, Hire a professional Cabinet Contractor

Cabinet painting will look great if done properly by a knowledgeable contractor and it is the least expensive and most effective way of breathing new life into old and drab-looking cabinets.

However, this process does not involve slathering a coat of paint on the cabinets and calling it a day. A substandard job will definitely give you the ‘quick’ changes you wanted, but this will not only leave you with a maintenance problem in the future, but your cabinets will also be challenged durability wise – a problem that will never be resolved without a complete surface preparation and repainting job.

The cabinets need to be properly dismantled; the surfaces prepared appropriately then primed with the correct primer and painted with a durable and environmentally friendly coat of paint so as to achieve an impressive and professional finish. Is this what your kitchen needs? Then it is time to contact Cardinal Pro Painters, and experience the benefits of hiring a professional cabinet painting service provider.

One of the biggest problems homeowners face when they decide to repaint the cabinets themselves is assuming that a DIY cabinet paint job is just another paint job. They don’t consider the time and preparation a cabinet painting project entails. It can be an extremely time-consuming endeavor for the homeowner, who has to juggle work, family, and other obligations to complete the job. Bringing in an experienced, professional cabinet painting contractor can make the process practically painless. So hire more than a handyman, hire a professional!

A fresh, new paint job for your kitchen will not only improve the dull aspect of your kitchen, but it will save you a great deal of money and time when done quickly and efficiently by trusted professionals, that’s what you can expect when hiring Cardinal Pro Painters.

Your Dream Kitchen

Cabinets are in fact one of the longest lasting components of your entire kitchen. In general, high quality cabinets can last up to fifty years but a common conundrum that occurs with your kitchen cabinets as they begin to show signs of ageing is whether or not it makes more economic sense to get a whole new kitchen, or make smart and affordable repairs that will make a lasting impression in style and your bank.

Several factors can cause your kitchen cabinets to wear away faster, no matter their original quality. Common damages include water causing the wood to warp, mold, or bubbling up from the inside and outside – each situation calls for a particular surface preparation method as well as finding and then stopping the source of the water from getting into the newly painted cabinets.

Hiring Cardinal Pro Painters will ensure that before you spend your hard earned money, time, and effort repainting your cabinets, you are getting the proper prep work as we identify and deal with issues such as mold. It is not uncommon to see moldy cabinets, especially since the kitchen is one of the most humid and often the wettest area of the home. When mold is caught early on it can be cleaned up and stopped, but when it is left unidentified, it will continue to grow and worsen. Not only does mold damage the overall veracity of your cabinets, but also large amounts of mold is detrimental to you and your family’s health. It is, therefore, very important to identify the source of water so that the problem does not continue to occur in the future and ruin a perfect paint job.

Likewise, if the cabinet shell is too worn for you to re-drill new holes or mount new hinges, the structure of the cabinet box will not be strong enough to support new cabinet doors. Without the ability to work with the current wood, your entire cabinet needs to be replaced; otherwise, you risk wasting a lot of money trying to make unsuccessful repairs. Therefore, before buying new doors, sanding down, or repainting your old cabinets, you should make sure that the wood is able to support new holes and hinges. All this valuable advice comes with hiring an expert.

Since cabinets can last for such a long time, refacing them means that you may require to update the doors, paint the exterior, maybe place a layer of veneer on the cabinet’s face as well as install new elements, such as handles that make a refreshed statement. This process allows you to update wooden cabinets without necessarily breaking the bank. How long your cabinets last after repairs or restorations will be contingent on the expert help you acquisition.

Proper Prepwork to Refinish Kitchen Cabinets

Stripping the cabinets and hardware, assessing the damages and required repairs, preparing the surfaces by covering the area so as to avoid getting paint or debris on your property are some of the vital steps in a great cabinet paint job.

We also sand all the surfaces that need to be painted as part of the preparation process for a proper paint adhesion. We do an excellent job of trimming and brushing all the frames and shells of your cabinets, and in order to achieve a smooth and flawless finish on all your cabinet doors, we spray paint them.

Before spray painting, we’ll use a quality primer not only to create a bonding surface for paint but also to reduce the number of coverings applied. As well as providing a base for the paint, using a quality primer leaves the pores in the permeable materials adequately sealed and averts the normal peeling, cracking and fading of the paint. If applied correctly, the primer will enhance the life of the paint as well as improve its appearance.

While the good-old paint brush will give the same desired outcome, spray painting remains a popular choice for professional cabinet painters because it provides a flawless factory like finish and it is a fast way to apply high quality paint coatings to a wide range of surfaces at a fraction of the time, unlike regular methods that could take much longer to complete the same job. Spray painting also offers a high transfer application and a controlled atomisation resulting in a superior high quality finish on all types of surfaces that will give your cabinets a uniform appearance. Furthermore, the color of paint applied on top of the primer lasts longer than one without the primer.

Once your cabinets are spray painted and completely dry, they are installed the correct way. One of the main challenges homeowners’ face when reinstalling cabinet door fronts on without the help of a professional, is determining which door goes with which opening. In order to avoid such confusion, we label each cabinet opening and door front with corresponding numbers marked on painter’s tape.

by Melissa P. on Cabinet Painting & Staining by Cardinal Pro Painters

I hired Cardinal Pro Painters to paint my kitchen and bathroom cabinets and the finished work is amazing. My previous painter rolled the doors and they were starting to peel so I knew there was going to be a lot of prep work. Cardinal spent a whole day prepping, cleaning, sanding, and repairing the cabinets. The next day the primed them and then painted them on the 3rd day. When they delivered the doors on the last day I was so impressed to see how smooth they looked. I am very glad I hired Cardinal Pro Painters, they really care about their work.

by Jason on Cabinet Painting & Staining by Cardinal Pro Painters

Their attention to detail is fantastic. Jonathan and the rest of the team work hard to make sure their customers are completely satisfied. My family is very pleased with the painted cabinets.

by Sabrina S on Cabinet Painting & Staining by Cardinal Pro Painters

The guys did an excellent job. I am getting compliments from everyone on my newly painted white cabinets. The entire process was much faster than I expected and they turned out as if they are from the factory. I could not be any happier with the quality of work. Cardinal Pro Painters is a very professional crew.

by Alice P on Cabinet Painting & Staining by Cardinal Pro Painters

We had Cardinal Pro Painters paint our oak cabinets in a two tone paint scheme to make them look more modern. They did a great job. They were very reliable and professional. Jonathan and Bryan did a fantastic job preparing everything and putting multiple coats of paint to give it a perfect look. They took their time and made sure everything was completed right. George, the manager, got back to me immediately with any questions I had. I would highly recommend using this company!

I had a very great experience with Cardinal Pro Painters. They painted our old kitchen cabinets and did a wonderful job in every way. This is the second time I hire them and as always, they deliver excellent results. The Cardinal Pro Painters crew is first rate.

by Nancy B. on Cabinet Painting & Staining by Cardinal Pro Painters

We just moved to Charlotte. We needed to find painters to refinish our cabinets quickly so that we could unpack and move in. We found Cardinal online and they sent back a quote the same day. These guys were professional and respectful. They finished in 4 days and did an amazing job. I would give 10 stars if I could and I highly recommend Cardinal Pro Painters for any size job.

by K.S. on Cabinet Painting & Staining by Cardinal Pro Painters

We were very satisfied with our decision to hire Cardinal Pro Painters to paint our cabinets. Thomas takes great pride in his work. He doesn't cut any corners. He also repaired a decorative molding that was in bad shape.


Thomas and the rest of the team are respectful and trustworthy. They'll go the extra mile to make you happy. I will definitely use Cardinal Pro Painters the next time we need something painted.
