|Editorial Review||Cardinal Homes is an average provider of modular homes. Their designs are good for people looking at the low end to the middle of the new home market. Their website has general information and several floorplans but it is not very easy to navigate or to read the small print. Their homes do come with nice standard features but so do most other modular home manufacturers. Cardinal Homes is a good but unremarkable and unmemorable builder. Their free brochure request form is a good example of this - after answering what state I was interested in building in, then having to select the county and zip code, then filling out about 20 other fields out mystery shopper received an error message saying they had no coverage. It would have been nice if they told our mystery shopper that before asking 20 more questions.|

Personal Reviews of Cardinal Homes
Allison long from Floyd, VA
Bought our house in 2001 with plans to live in the home until we retire. So many regrets. The first year we were happy, then the warrentee expired. That's when the trouble started. Here's a few of the major problems we have encountered: 6 of the windows have broken seals and are fogged between the panes, the spindles on the staircase are not all the same size, exterior door molding began to dry rot within 2 years of purchase, bowing dry wall, horrible insulation, stairs have no skirt molding & squeak & are loose, surround for master bath tub started to fall out. No room to list the rest. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!
Daniel Dexter from North Carolina
2007/2008 I bought a ranch 1800 SqFt. Bad BAD Worse! Ever system in the home was messed up. I beams bounce by 1/2" and there suppose to, Nails through wall into room then into floor, Windows open hard, framing not lining up leaving gaps in door trims, electric box's wrong so cover plates don't sit flush to wall, light hanging from ceiling, ceiling electric box mounting screws striped, plumbing put in wrong side of house/box, every time I went to do the things I was going to do myself I had to fix or wait on them to fix the mistakes they made. I'm not kidding ever part of this thing had something wrong with it. When my contractor contacted them on the plumbing they told him "no it's right", that's what my contractor told me. Demo's I saw with storage in attic had floor down, mine only came with a few boards and they weren't installed. Insulation just threw in gaps everywhere. I'd like $10,000 from cardinal just to cover all the crap wrong that I had to deal with. It's hard to find a modular that does it all right, not perfect, just right.
Some day I like to put a video up on youtube showing all the crap that company did. If it wasn't for my wife I would have sued them.
Rhonda from Greenwood, South Carolina
Overall we were very pleased with our Cardinal home. We had it built in 1998. I was surprised by my electric bill, it was very low, and we had two stories. We sold the home a year ago, and we liked it so much, we are going to have another Cardinal home built. I would recommend Cardinal homes to anyone.
Marri Neilson from Victoria VA
My home was built in 2006. The workmanship was excellent. Some interior walls feel cold and I am curious about the insulation in the walls and between the first and 2nd floors. I am especially impressed with the finishing work done on site. I would have another house built by Cardinal without a doubt.
Charles Chaney from Chase City, VA
We couldn't be happier with our Cardinal home. They built to our floor plan including vaulted ceilings and "lifestyle" features such as wider hallways, 36" doors, and level front entry. Quality is excellent - we had one small settlement crack after a year in the house. We appreciate the "green" attributes of our home including the limited impact on the building site, and the energy savings as a result of the great insulation. We built in 2002 and would definitely do it all again, and have convinced friends to build their new home through Cardinal.
Gary Henderson from Stuarts Draft, Virginia
From the first moment I met with my builder that handled the ordering, delivery, set up and finishing of my Cardinal home, We were extremely pleased with the level of service, quality of materials and timely manner of product from start to finish. I truly believe it was my builder that made all the difference, but we do feel Cardinal produces a quality product for the money.
David Hawkins from Red Oak Va
I bought a home from them in 1987. The bath room wall was and is still bowed out. The tile flooring had( and still does) gaps where it should have met the wall near and around door moldings. The master bath room ceiling started molding the first year we were in the home as did the windows. I found out in 2007 why the ceiling was molding, the insulation was missing over top of the bath room. In 2003 I had to start replacing all the windows because of the mold and the windows were just falling apart. out of the 3 sinks in the house 3 pipe traps were leaking.
