A Short History
Chesapeake Bay Cabinet Company was founded by Mike Harding in 1989. In the 1980s, Mike left his job as a waterman and moved to the Richmond area to begin work as a subcontractor. At that time Mr. Harding was a one man show. He would throw on his suit, drive out to new construction job sites, and set up his mobile showroom. He would line up the varying door styles around his work truck and set out most popular laminate top styles for the local builders to view. After his meetings, Mike would pack up then change back in to his work clothes and head to install his current project. Over the years, with the help of many great friends and dedicated employees the company was able to continue to grow and form.
Today, thirty years later, Chesapeake Bay Cabinet Company is still a small family owned and operated business with almost thirty employees and specializes in providing cabinetry work to varying clientele. Mike’s two sons, Collin and Travis, are an active part of the team.
Collin focuses on the install portion of the company while Travis participates in designing new construction homes as well as contributing to local show homes that our builders put on. Our design staff consists of a group of designers each with multiple years in the industry, some with installation backgrounds themselves.
We have in-house crews performing our installations with specialized crews that focus on the punch and warranty needs of our customers. Our showroom boasts an array of cabinetry and counter top options ranging in price groups along with the newest trends in color and style. The showroom and our offerings are constantly being updated.
Our staff is knowledgeable in our product offerings and will be able to assist you in selecting the best product line that meets your desired style as well as your budget.

About Our Name
We get our company name from our owner Mike Harding. Mike was born and raised in the Northern Neck area. He spent most of his childhood on into adulthood on the bay fishing, crabbing and raising oysters. Mike was blessed to share this joy with his two growing sons, Travis and Collin. In his free time, Mike still enjoys visiting the bay and participating in these great activities with his family including his ten grandchildren. The bay will forever be a part of the Harding name which is why it became part of our name.
