Experience Better Than New Cabinets

We use an industrial wood coating made from the highest quality polyurethane and acrylic resins that passes KCMA & AWI testing.

Developed in Italy and manufactured in the US, our premium waterborne coating is safe to spray in your home (when done with our air exhaust & filter equipment), extremely durable and mildew resistant, and levels out to an amazingly smooth and rich finish when skillfully applied via HVLP on a machine sanded surface by a trained spray painter.

Fine furniture grade paint on your cabinets will add value to your home. Regular trim paint on your cabinets may decrease the value of your home. So call the pros and let’s make your kitchen look amazing!

Questions You Need To Ask Your Cabinet Painter

1. What type of coating do you use? Does it pass AWI (Architectural Woodwork Institute) and KCMA (Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association) testing? And is it safe?

Yes, Cardinal Pro Painters uses the highest quality industrial wood coatings. They are also low VOC and safe to spray in your home.

Many regular house painters are painting cabinets with standard trim paint (such as Sherwin Williams Emerald Urethane or ProClassic, etc.) which are not strong enough to hold up to regular kitchen use. Other painters are using solvent based products which should not be sprayed in a home. Solvent products (oil, conversion varnish, lacquers) should only be sprayed in an industrial paint booth as it is very dangerous to your health and flammable. Explosions and fires caused by spraying solvent products in a home are not uncommon.

2. How do you sand the cabinets?

Cardinal Pro Painters uses the SurfPrep sanding system because the foam abrasive pads contour to the shape of the wood to allow thorough sanding not achievable by standard pads.

3. How do you control dust & keep the air clean?

Cardinal Pro Painters will bring and run a high velocity cylinder air mover with filters and an exhaust hose to control air quality. This is to keep your home clean, and just as important, to prevent dust particles from affecting the paint as it dries.

4. Are you fully insured?

You can feel safe when you hire Cardinal Pro Painters. We carry a one million dollar general liability policy and a half a million dollars workers comp policy. Don’t take the risk of hiring an uninsured contractor or you may be liable for any accidents.

5. Do you have reviews/testimonials?

Cardinal Pro Painters has lots of 5 star reviews on Google & Facebook. We have also won many accolades such as being avoted a 2019 Top Painter on and, research and validation guides that identifies top local service professionals.

Nothing Is As Impactful For Your Kitchen Than Professionally Painted Cabinets

Sprucing up old and tired cabinets is fast, convenient, and affordable. A breathtaking cabinet makeover is quite possible with a top quality paint coating – a job best left to a professional cabinet painting company like Cardinal Pro Painters as it involves quite a number of procedures.

Many homeowners hope to create a visually charming kitchen, and sprucing up the cabinets is always the best place to start. Hiring an experienced professional in kitchen cabinet painting is always recommended when you want to achieve the best outcomes.

Most homeowners who have outgrown their old cabinets will have them altogether removed and replaced with new ones. However, breathing life into dated cabinets does not need to break the bank because done right, painting cabinets can provide a budget-friendly as well as customized solution that meets your specific goals.

The Kitchen Is The Heart Of the Home. Cabinets Are The Heart Of The Kitchen.

Imagine your kitchen immaculately updated with modern colors that brighten up your space. You can have the benefits from a complete makeover of your kitchen, for a cozy, inspiring and relaxed feeling at a cost-effective rate by securing the services of Cardinal Pro Painters, experienced experts who specialize in modern and stylish kitchen cabinet painting services in Hickory NC.

The kitchen is the heart of any home and a center of family-oriented activities. Therefore, with time stained cabinets can begin to show signs of age. Replacing all the cabinets is often a common approach in many households, but it costs a lot more than painting, requiring the help of a qualified carpenter to make sure the job is done right to meet all your requirements. Replacing your cabinets may also mean that you change the layout of your kitchen, which means more money, more time and the inconvenience that sometimes comes with renovating a whole kitchen. Instead, you can get similar benefits at a lower price by choosing to have your cabinets professionally painted.

Our Process For Painting Kitchen Cabinets

It’s actually an 11 step process which will be outlined in your quote. Here is a brief summary:

1. Set up plastic, tape, & paper.

2. Remove doors, drawer fronts, & hardware.

3. Thoroughly clean and machine sand cabinets.

4. Set up high velocity air mover with filter and exhaust hose to control air quality. Scuff sanding before each coat, coat cabinets multiple times via HVLP fine-spray application.

*You do not need to remove items from your cabinet boxes

Though a few months overdue I definitely want to let everyone know that this company is the very best! The communication, service, price and beautiful job they did is second to none. I have a lot of experience with painting quotes and jobs and I have never worked with a company that was so easy, responsive, professional, dependable as well as reasonably priced. Everything was seamless. They did what they said they’d do and in the time frame offered. Oscar was so helpful with my many questions. We will definitely choose them next time!

I am very happy with restoring my 15 year old custom made cabinets with Cardinal Pro Painters. My cabinets became dated, and the wear and tear of renting my townhouse out over the years made more wear & tear on my cabinet’s finish. They came in on a Monday and cleaned, primed, and sanded my base cabinets first. They came back and sanded and painted the first coat of paint to my bases.  The sanded again and painted my cabinet bases again with another coat to finish the job. They installed the hardware and my cabinets are like brand new! A new more modern look that is stunning and brightens up my entire great room even more than before. The cost was so reasonable. There was no question in the value and quality of my new refinished cabinets. I just love the look. I love my new cabinets even more! Thank you pro Painters!

George and the team at Cardinal Pro Painters did an amazing job painting our kitchen cabinets. I hired them to do the job while I was out of town and my house was spotless when we arrived back home. They did a beautiful job on the cabinets and they look like a factory finish paint job. We were thrilled with their work and professionalism throughout the whole job.

My wife and I are totally satisfied with the excellent job that Bryan P. and team did painting our kitchen cabinets! The were not only good painters, I would say they are perfectionists. They were able to fish filled holes without any imperfections after we changed out the cabinet handles with a new type. We highly recommend this company and these painters.

The work done by Jonathan and his team was excellent. They were very helpful and polite even when the sanding work took longer than expected. (Not their fault…we tried to paint on our own with chalk paint and they had to sand that off.) Our cabinets look incredible! We will definitely be using Cardinal Pro Painters again! The account manager George was very helpful and responsive with my questions. A+!

I am EXTREMELY pleased with the outstanding work that Cardinal Pro Painters did on our home. First of all, they are extremely responsive and quick to reply to inquiries and provide quotes. I love the fact that they provided a quote via email with me outlining the areas I wanted painted and they didn’t require a consultation (in person). It made the process so much easier. George is extremely pleasant to work with and responsive. I even had a last minute addition on one of the jobs and he quickly accommodated my request. The team who painted my home was professional, comprehensive and conscientious.  They did an impeccable job. I will continue to do business with this company and I highly recommend them for any painting job.

I am so impressed by the quality and detail of Jonathan and his team at Cardinal pro painters. They repainted my kitchen cabinets, and were so detailed in taping everything off, washing and sanding the cabinets, and ensuring I was fully pleased. George was great and timely in his coordination of when the team would be able to begin painting, and providing me a detailed quote (which includes a two year warranty!) I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for painters, and they are reasonably priced as well. I will look to use them again in the future!

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 in little time, while maintaining a high professional standard, therefore having your kitchen back in full operation quickly.

Hire more than a handyman, Hire a Professional Cabinet Painter

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.

A Professionally Applied Durable Coating Will Save You Money Down The Road.

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.

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 make your kitchen look new, 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.
