Cipriani Remodeling Solutions
Your Home Remodeling Experts
Listening better, caring more.
Starting a remodeling project can feel overwhelming. There’s a lot to consider, including design trends, cost of materials, efficient use of space, building codes, and more.
You want to create a space you love, but you aren’t sure where to begin. Maybe you’ve got a perfect mental picture of the newly imagined space, or maybe you’ll just know it when you see it. Either way, having the right team by your side can turn the whole process from daunting to fun.
Cipriani Remodeling Solutions is a full-service home remodeling company based in Southern New Jersey. For over 40 years, we’ve been helping homeowners design and build the kitchens, bathrooms, and additions of their dreams.
Our team will guide you through the entire project – from start to finish – using our five-step process.
1. Listen: Free In-Home Consultation
A designer will visit your home and ask detailed questions about your vision for the space you’d like to remodel. They’ll also take photographs and careful measurements.
2. Design: Create 3-D Mockup
About a week after the consultation, you’ll be invited to visit our office. Your designer will present a 3-D proposal for your project with an estimate for the work. Then the two of you will discuss any revisions or questions you have about the process.
3. Refine: Choose Materials
Now that you have a budget and layout, you and your designer will hit the showrooms to choose cabinets, counter tops, fixtures, flooring, and any other design elements. They’ll provide expert advice for selecting quality products within your price range.
4. Define: Finalize Design Selections
After you’ve decided on materials, we’ll sit down one more time to finalize it all. You’ll be given a project agreement that includes drawings, 3-D illustrations, specific details on products to be used, and a payment schedule.
5. Build: Start Construction
We’ll get all the required building permits in order, and your designer will introduce you to the project manager. Throughout the entire building process your project manager will be there to answer any questions and address any concerns.
Our payment terms are different from most contractors. We don’t take large deposits upfront because we want our homeowners to know that, first and foremost, we work for you. Whoever is in control of the money has the power in the event that something goes wrong. We want you have the power, so you can feel confident about working with us.
To start your project, you’ll only need to put down a 2% deposit. Your contract will outline a payment schedule that allows you to pay for the work as we complete each milestone and you’ve approved what was done.
We take the time to educate clients about the remodeling process.
I thought I just needed a price to make the best decision for my project. What I received from Cipriani was an education.
Just a 2% retainer starts the design process. This retainer goes towards your final project investment. Anything else is too risky for you.
I want this to be the safest and most comfortable remodeling experience you can have. You’re going to love how we take care of you.
– Jay Cipriani
It starts by carefully listening to you. You get an amazing 3D design prepared to help visualize your project, and you receive a customized shopping experience to select your materials.
We are with you through the entire design and building process, giving you personal attention the whole way.
– Cindy Cipriani
We have a unique 5-step process from design through building that ensures a safe, no pressure approach, all while providing peace of mind.
You’ll breathe a sigh of relief knowing you picked the right remodeler.
– Jay & Cindy Cipriani
What is Safe-Pay™?
Safe-Pay™ is a payment method we use to protect homeowners and make them feel safe and comfortable when paying for their project. Rather than taking a large up-front deposit of 20 to 50 % as other contractors do, we only ask for small incrementally payments as each phase of the project is completed. This practice has helped us you stay in control of the money and the quality of the work.
Do You Offer Financing?
Yes – we offer financing options through Green Sky and NFM Financing.
What is your personal-touch service?
Cipriani Remodeling Solutions understands that a home renovation project can be an overwhelming process. That is why we established our five-step personal touch service policy. This policy ensures that you are involved in the entire remodeling process.
The five steps of our personal-touch design service are as follows.
- We listen to your ideas, wants and needs. We want to learn about your lifestyle and how you would like your home to serve these needs.
- We prepare an initial design and review these plans with you.
- These plans are reviewed and we can refine the design according to our conversation with you.
- The final plans are defined and you will be presented with a detailed document that will contain all of the information concerning the project.
- The final step is to begin building the project.
Our design team will work with you to in the beginning and throughout the project to ensure our designs meet your needs and budget. We take you shopping to select building materials and take care of all permits for the project. You will have a dedicated project manager who will communicate with you during all phases of remodeling and a project schedule will be posted in your home. The company management team will personally come out and inspect the finished projects to ensure all work meets 0ur high standards.
Each project is guaranteed to meet all construction codes required by your municipality. Should you ever decide to sell your home, you can be confident the structure will pass mortgage company inspections.
What makes your estimates different from other contractors?
The cost estimation process used by Cipriani Remodeling Solutions is truly unique. Our remodeling consultants will listen to your ideas and ask questions in order to fully understand what you hope to achieve in the renovation project. They will take photographs and perform investigations in an effort to discover any structural or other issues that may affect the final cost and design of your project. This process allows us to create the most accurate estimate of the work needed to complete the renovation.
Cipriani Remodeling Solutions is an honest company and we feel our cost estimation process gives you the most accurate estimate possible. We do not want to present a low estimate just to get a job. We believe in being realistic with our clients about any issues that may arise during the construction process and how these issues may affect the final cost of the renovation.
-How to Select a Remodeling Contractor-
There are many remodeling contractors doing business in the area and you may be wondering how to select a company for your home renovation project.
The following is a list of guidelines to help you in the selection process.
- Visit a job site to meet one of our project managers and see their dedication to quality craftsmanship.
- Talk to our trade partners to see how they evaluate companies they work with and who they would recommend for specific types of home renovation projects.
- Ask township inspectors who they think performs the highest quality work out of all the different contractors.
- Speak to our previous customers to learn about their experience with our company and if they would use us again.
- Read an article about our company by Alan Heavens, a Philadelphia Inquirer columnist.
What is the best way to know what my remodeling project will cost?
It’s a great question. There are two popular sources people like to use:
- Home Advisor
However, there are some issues with these sources.
One way is known as the HGTV effect, which you can read more about here. Basically, a homeowner watches HGTV,the process appears to go fast, the cost is stated to be low and the results are a poor quality job. HGTV does a great job of entertaining and inspiring people who watch, but it also distorts what remodeling actually looks like. Contractors and manufacturers donate their time and materials to get on the show, which lowers the actual costs. The show has time constraints to finish quickly as possible resulting in poor workmanship. The hosts often are not the ones actually doing the work. An army of contractors behind the scenes are there to complete everything quickly. This can often create total chaos for the homeowner since they can’t live at the home while this is being done. So, the time and cost usually aren’t realistic.
Home Advisor is in the business of selling leads to contractors and the lower the project price looks, the more leads they can collect and sell. They are currently being sued for selling bogus leads to contractors, which you can read about here.
So where can you go to get reliable pricing information? The best source we have seen is the Cost vs Value guide from Remodeling Magazine. Check out this guide.
The BEST way is to have one of our designers visit your home and prepare a free estimate for you! Call us to set an appointment.
Mima & Joe P - Marlton, NJ
We truly had a wonderful experience with our home improvement project! Jim Z. was the perfect match for us as our project manager. He was always so calm even when there was chaos. The best part about working with Cipriani Builders was that from the first meeting with Jay Stack to the final walk through, everyone involved wanted to make sure that as the consumer we were satisfied. Whenever we wanted a change, it was done. If they themselves didn’t like how something was coming along, they would make it better. All in all they are a first rate building company. We just couldn’t love our kitchen and closet addition more!!!
Everyone we came in contact with were so professional! Our project manager was always there tending to every detail and answered any questions in a timely manner. It was also comforting to know that we could feel safe leaving our home in the hands of Cipriani employees.
Sara S - Glassboro, NJ
As always Jay was great, took care of any problems I had and also helped me make some decisions that I wasn’t sure about. Jim Moffa and his crew did a great job. Jim is very friendly and made sure that I was happy with everything he did. This was my third job with Cipriani Builders and the reason I choose them is because I can trust them I never had to worry it they were getting things done. I could leave my house and not have to worry about a thing which is very hard to find people that you can truly trust. As always I miss everyone when the job is over. Thank you for all the hard work everyone.
Angie’s List Review May 6th
Picking a contractor to rebuild our dream home is probably one of the hardest things I have ever done.
BEFORE I picked Cipriani to do our work we had more than 10 contractors come and give us quotes on our major project. They differed quite significantly in cost to the point that it was confusing. We ended up picking the one who looked the best and gave a decent price, only to be thoroughly let down. We lost around $10,000 to [that] contractor…
That led me to Cipriani Builders and the best choice I think I could have possibly made. They were recommended to me initially by word of mouth from an architect friend. They have been outstanding on a level that I simply did not think was possible with all of the stories I had heard about the construction industry. I learned a lot as I lost that $10,000 mainly to pay attention to the quotes, the professionalism of the people, and most importantly for the final cost the details of what were and were not included. My initial quote from Cipriani builders was significantly more expensive than any of the others I had. This made me nervous but as I went through it and compared them (I am an engineer so like to look at the details) it was obvious that Cipriani’s quote included absolutely EVERYTHING and the price they showed me would be the price I paid for the job I wanted (barring any scary unforeseen surprises.)
When I looked at the quotes from other companies they were missing the details or materials and I would be expected to pay for those items separately. Also when I looked at the allowances in some of the other quotes they weren’t realistic to the prices for materials I had already been looking for like hard wood flooring and tiling.
So I chose Cipriani.
An outstanding company and excellent value for the money we paid. I can’t recommend them enough and do recommend them personally to all of our friends. If you are nervous about picking the right contractor and spending a large sum of money picking Cipriani is the right decision.
Deena & James O - Haddonfield, NJ
Their timing was impeccable. They started on the right day and finished on the right day. I was without a kitchen for only 3 weeks. It was nice that they were able to put my ripped up kitchen back together quickly.
Susan B - Haddonfield, NJ
I could trust that they would do what they promised from past experience working with them. There weren’t going to be any surprises. We’ve been working with Jay since 1984. We have come back again and again.
John & Elvena E - Thorofare, NJ
I really like that up to 3 years after the project they will take care of small things like nail pops and cracks in the walls. They are very responsive. I was satisfied by the beautiful job that they did with the kitchen remodeling.We also appreciated the work they did on our second home at the shore; they totally rebuilt it so that it’s much more livable and will give the family many more years of enjoyment. Cipriani Remodeling Solutions was very responsive to our needs and listened to our wish list. They presented us with the plan that they thought would best meet our needs.
Angie’s List Review July 12th
We had already had Cipriani builders renovate our home at a cost of $350,000 and were so happy with them that they were the only company we called to take a look at our next project.
I needed a new roof, windows, dormers and ancillaries on my pole barn/workshop. They worked with me to fit the project within my budget but still give me everything I wanted. The team that worked on the project were tidy and considerate. The project went perfectly to plan with no issues what so ever. The quality of the work was great, and the barn looks stunning. The work they did was in keeping with a classic red pole barn. I am very happy with how it turned out.
Whatever my next project is, I already know that Cipriani builders will be the contractors doing it for me.
Angela & Marc T - Cherry Hill, NJ
I was very pleased with everything. It was exactly as they said it would be. They took care of any problems I had until I was happy. The designer was wonderful and the project manager was terrific. I can’t say enough good things about the company they are honest, dependable and accurate. I would highly recommend them.
Lynne & Robert Y - Mullica Hill, NJ
Cipriani was very professional and did a great job. This is the second project they did for us and we are very happy with the finished product. They are great to work with and would highly recommend them.
Patrick & Joyce D - Sewell, NJ
Overall they did an excellent job in all areas and have always made us feel confident the job would be completed as planned and would exceed our expectations… We highly recommend Cipriani whenever anyone inquires about a remodeler.
Dan & Leslie P - Cherry Hill, NJ
They listened to our ideas, and never assumed that we were content with whatever they accomplished until they physically demonstrated the product to us. That went a long way.
Rob L - Williamstown, NJ
Their thoroughness is outstanding. Their professionalism and courteousness is also uncanny.
John & Marie B - Marlton, NJ
I was most satisfied with their response to our problems. They really came through. I think they did an excellent job.
