Going through a remodel is challenging, frustrating and taxing on ones check book.
James was our best friend on that account by wisely guiding us through the construction process, addressing our wants and needs and keeping his eye on the ever present budget.
Our kitchen remodel became necessary due to the new use of a motorized wheelchair.
Marni Vincent was our floor plan designer and Mr. Croci worked closely with her
plans and admonitions. It was the intent of these two fine people to provide us with a handicap assessable kitchen while maintaining standard counter heights, ease of movement and maintenance while retaining the character of the kitchen to match
the nature of the home. The remodel required new cabinets, counter top ,lights and
plugs, plumbing fixtures, all appliances, and a vent fan, crown molding and new pocket doors plus changes to wall structures, ceiling covering, and electrical.
Additionally, the remodel required addressing such things as traffic pattern, a large rock wall and fire place, ceiling vents, as well as reworking with original heating and ventilating system, electrical wiring, plumbing lines and windows and framing structure. To our amazement and gratification this completed remodel far exceeded our expectations.The end result is a beautiful kitchen remodel worthy of any home improvement magazine!
Our interaction between ourselves and Mr. Croci was very enjoyable as he is a great
communicator, performs work in a timely manner and is full of good ideas of how to
address problem areas. At all times James respected our concerns and addressed
them with our needs in mind. Our remodel was completed nearly within our budget and within the period agreed to in our contract. Unforeseen costs occurred due to the age and settling of our home but additional costs were kept to a minimum due to Mr. Croci's great advice and cooperation.
Since completion Mr. Croci has returned to our home to make minor adjustments such
as a spice rack, relocation, address a difficult closing drawer and to re-engineering a water line to allow further set back of large refrigerator. Return appointments were always kept as scheduled and always with pleasant visits.
We feel that both Marni and James are not just our contractors but new found friends.
James who was always being sensitive to the handicap situations of our home arrived
with a Christmas gift of a custom made door ramp for ease of mobility through the front door. James always completed his workmanship to the best of his ability. We feel his work ethic justifies his business name one bearing the word integrity.

Regarding the capability, efficiency, and fairness of Cornerstone Integrity Builders, my experience during the remodel of my house was above and beyond all that I expected. With only a few switches to ďPlan BísĒ that were dictated by the previous construction of the house, nearly all work was completed ahead of schedule and under budget. Contractor James Croci actually had work done before I expected
in a couple of cases. He had contingency plans in place for anticipated problems with the remodel.
Altogether, I donít know of anyone who relates their remodel experience with the same high degree of satisfaction as me.
I would highly recommend Cornerstone Integrity Builders to anyone considering a construction or remodel project. Mr Croci and his crew performed not only above any standard Iíve witnessed myself, but above any standard reported to me by anyone involved in a construction or remodel project.
