Our Experts Answer Your Home Remodeling Questions

We asked our experts some tough questions to help get you the answers you need to make a smart decision about your next home remodeling project.

Let’s get started!

Q. Why should homeowners work with a design-build firm?

A. With design-build, everybody is on the same team.

We’re all in this together and we all have the same goal: to arrive at a successful project that meets or exceeds the client’s expectations.

A design-build firm is involved from start to finish, which adds inherent efficiency. The chance for things to fall through the cracks is greatly diminished.

We’ve all heard the stories that design and construction can get out of hand and messy. Design and construction shouldn’t be chaotic or stressful.

As a design-build firm, we’re an assest to our clients throughout the process, helping them along the way to the best possible outcome.

Design-build turns chaos into an orderly and productive process.

Q. What questions should people ask you and why?

A. Some questions we want to hear are:

  • What is your usual timeline; Timelines can be tricky with the weather, materials being delayed or subcontractors being behind on other work. A good contractor will make sure to give you a good solid move in date.
  • Can I have a few references? The best way to understand your builder is by talking to other clients that have gone through the same building process.

Q. What does Cornerstone do differently from other remodeling firms in the area?

A. Our team makes sure we are with you every step of the way. Our quality of work is second-to-none. We’ll also make sure you are still within your budget by the end of the project.

Q. What will people be most surprised about after working with Cornerstone?

A. The workmanship and a wonderful dedicated team that shows up to the project and makes sure the job is done and done right.

Q. What are a few of your favorite projects?

A. We love showing off our work!

Our clients wanted a timeless bathroom that was not too trendy. They did not want something they would get bored within 10 years. They really liked the soaker tubs with the claw foot. To add on to this look, we needed to make sure we had a strong, cohesive design. We added a walk-in shower with a lot of Carrera marble.

We updated the majority of the main floor, focusing on the kitchen and living room.  In the kitchen, we removed walls and created a new layout. The new “L” shaped kitchen with an island creates so much more usable space. Then we installed hardwoods throughout the main level. 

The house was outdated and needed a new layout. With this project, we remodel the majority of the first floor with the main focus on the kitchen. We removed the kitchen/living room support beams and walls. We then rebuilt a Glue Laminated Beam with new posts. A walk-in pantry with a large island for entertaining was much needed for these clients.

New hardwood floors in the main level made this stunning kitchen even more beautiful!

We used white subway tile with shaker style cabinets and Pental countertops. We added a coffee bar, wine bar, steam oven instead of a microwave, and a pot filler. New lighting complemented a huge skylight in the middle of the kitchen. We installed a custom beam to add light fixtures throughout the kitchen.
