Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long will my job take to complete?
A: "We provide a detailed schedule within about a week of signing the contract. Our lead time to start a project is usually about two weeks, but it’s subject to the availability of the desired materials."
Q: Do you work straight through to completion?
A: "Yes, almost always. The only time we have downtime is when materials aren’t available. But our usual practice is to be onsite every day until the job is done."
Q: Do you operate a clean worksite?
A: "Construction is inevitably messy, but we do the best we can. We set up containment barriers to keep dust under control, and we spend the last 30 minutes of each day cleaning up the site."

Suzanne H. Verified Cardinal Construction, Inc. Customer Name
Q1:10 out of 10
Q2:Yes
Q3 & Q4:

"I would tell them you're going to get a quality product for a reasonable price. It's more expensive than a general contractor, but you're going to get the quality behind the company. That's what I wanted. I wanted a few things, one is quality, one is a fair price, and the last thing is for them to show up when they said they will and work within the time frame they give and they definitely did that."

"I like that one of the owners is always on the project, and you can tell they train and use their own people and not subcontractors. As a single woman that means a lot to me. They have great people relations, they showed up, and they did everything I expected."

"They're professional, on time, they keep you updated, they always finished on time, and showed up when they said they would show up. When there were other areas of my house I needed to do that wasn't their area of expertise, they would introduce me to other contractors that could help me."

"The quality of the work, after the fact, if something goes wrong like it's been a year and I had a problem with a sink they installed, the issue wasn't their fault but they were willing to come back and fix it for me. They're really good about following through and really good about staying in touch. When I do call, I always get a phone call back immediately."
