was established in 1965 by Bill Cardia, master plumber, craftsman,
and all around good guy. People trusted Bill because they knew
they could count on him, his work was top-notch, and his rates
were fair – values he passed onto his son, Frank Cardia.
During the 1970’s, Bill recognized the need for a community plumbing shop
offering replacement parts, kitchen and bath fixtures, and trustworthy advise
for both contractors and the do-it-yourself types. Bill purchased a storefront
on De Anza Blvd in Cupertino and opened a plumbing showroom for the public .
During this time, Bill continued to hire and train apprentice plumbers, expanding
his ability to offer quality and reliable plumbing service to existing and new
customers throughout the community. Included on this team was his eldest son,
Frank, who demonstrated the same enthusiasm, creativity, and knack for plumbing
as his father.
what he learned from his dad (Bill), Frank established FLC Plumbing,
a full-service plumbing contractor, during the 1980s.
Bill semi-retired, after selling the storefront, but continued to operate Cupertino
Plumbing’s service and repair business until he was diagnosed with Asbestos
cancer in 1990. The passing of Bill Cardia was a great loss to the community,
but Frank Cardia and FLC Plumbing stepped in to support Bill’s long-established
customers by acquiring Cupertino Plumbing, continuing a legacy of great customer
service and quality repairs. In the Spirit of Bill’s plumbing showroom,
Frank and Rosalind Cardia opened The Plumbing Bank, a unique bath and kitchen
showroom on De Anza Blvd, in Cupertino.
“Overtime, more and more of our customers came to us for complete replacement
of old rusted and corroded galvanized water lines with new copper pipes (that
do not rust or corrode).” says Rosalind Cardia. Copper repiping became
a big part of the business and to this day Cupertino Plumbing is considered by
customers, contractors, city inspectors, and permit offices as a leader in copper
repiping throughout the San Francisco Bay Area – repiping over 200 homes
Cupertino Plumbing continues to offer unmatched quality and accountability in
all areas of plumbing service including new installations, general maintenance,
repairs, and copper repiping (commercial and residential).
