Design/Build Home Remodeling Contractor
Listening Better. Caring More.
– WHAT WE DO –
We are a full-service design/build home remodeling company that specializes in designing and building kitchens, bathrooms, additions and whole home remodeling projects in South Jersey. Our Teams don’t do boring or ordinary; we specialize in EXTRAORDINARY! We design & build remodeling masterpieces. If you are looking for an exciting room makeover, whether it’s replacing everything, a new layout, or adding a new addition, we are the company to get it done for you!
– WHO WE ARE –
Listening better and caring more – it’s not just a slogan, it’s what people have loved about us since 1978. The Cipriani Remodeling Solutions team has built our kitchen, bathroom & home addition remodeling business on these principles:
Listening • Caring • Character • Craftsmanship
– PERSONAL TOUCH SERVICE –
Our Design Team takes the time to listen to your concerns and desires. They inject their creativity into your ideas to provide extraordinary, one-of-a-kind remodels. They live for challenging and distinctive projects. Whether it’s kitchen designs, bathroom ideas, or home remodeling projects, you’ll be amazed at what we can come up with TOGETHER. Our Designers Personal Touch Service also takes you shopping to select all the products for your amazing design.
– CIPRIANI SAFE-PAY –
With our risk-free safe-pay payment plan, we only require a 2% down-payment to get started. You pay the remainder as your project gets completed. Don’t use anyone who needs 25% – 50% up front; it’s too risky.
– BUILDERS WHO CARE –
We have a 5-step process to make sure your project runs smoothly. Our Project Management Team is very respectful of your home. They take great care to protect every area that is not under construction. We use a dedicated Project Manager in your home to ensure the highest quality work is done and to answer any questions you have. We value you, your time and your home. We want this to be the easiest and most risk-free kitchen, bathroom or home addition remodeling project you can experience.
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% payment starts the design process. All payments go towards your project. 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 – I guarantee it!
– 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, 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 method we use to protect homeowners and make them feel comfortable. Rather than taking a large deposit (20-50%) up front, we charge incrementally as each stage of the work is completed. We only get paid for items after we install them correctly. This has helped us win a reputation as straight-shooters. It’s very risky for you if a contractor has a lot of your money up front before any work begins. We want to eliminate that risk for you. Our initial consultation is free and we only charge a 2% design fee to begin to do your project design. That fee goes towards your project if you choose to use us for your remodeling. After that, we use a pay as you go structure to pay for work after it is completed – Safe-Pay!
What is your personal-touch service?
Our Personal-Touch service is our way of taking care of you. For people who have never done a remodeling project before, this can be an overwhelming process. This service is here for you through the entire project so you are never on your own. We are with you, holding your hand the whole way. It starts with us spending time listening to you to make sure our designs meet all your needs. We continue to listen to your input and take the time to refine our initial design to get everything perfect. This includes taking you shopping for your finished materials like plumbing fixtures, flooring, cabinets, backsplashes, countertops, appliances, and lighting. We also get all the required permits for your project. This protects you so that you know your project is being inspected by your township and will meet their code requirements. This meets the requirements of your township and insurance policies should any problems ever arise and if you ever try to sell your home. You also get a dedicated Project Manager for your project who is there to communicate with you to make sure everything is progressing to your satisfaction. We post a project schedule in your home as well. At the end of your project, Jay Cipriani performs an inspection to make sure everything was done to his high standards.
Why do other contractors seem to charge less than you?
During the initial visit at your home, our Remodeling Consultants (RC’s) spend a lot of time listening to you, asking questions, taking photos and doing a lot of investigating to try to uncover any potential issues with your project. We do this because we want to be very through with our estimates. The sooner you are aware of any potential issues the better the planning and design will be and less costly for you. It can be really costly to “discover” hidden things that change the scope of your project after it is started. We try to let you know about as many issues as possible up front, so our estimates tend to reflect a more realistic number rather than just a low estimate to get you to do a job. This is different than how other contractors estimate their projects, and what sets us apart.
If you appreciate the difference between fast-food and fine-dining, you’ll understand the difference we offer to our clients. You can get something to eat at both places, but each has vastly different experiences with quality, service, and satisfaction.
We know there are a lot of remodeling contractors out there and it can be very confusing for you to compare everyone to figure out who would be the best choice to do your project. A couple of good ways to help you to evaluate companies would be to:
- visit a job site and see the quality of work and the character and craftsmanship of our project managers
- ask our trade partners how they would evaluate the various companies they work with and who they would choose
- ask township inspectors who they think does the highest quality work
- talk to any of our past customers what their experience was like and if they would use us again
- read what Alan Heavens, a Philadelphia Inquirer columnist, said about us
Do you offer financing?
Yes, we do! In addition to taking credit cards, we offer financing plans through two vendors:
- NFM Financing
What is the best way to know what my remodeling project will cost?
It’s a great question and one of our most asked! There are two popular sources people like to use:
- Home Advisor
However, there are some issues with these sources.
One issue is known as the HGTV effect, which you can read more about here. Basically, a homeowner watches HGTV and the process appears fast, the price appears low and the results are designer quality. HGTV does a great job of entertaining and inspiring people who watch, but it also distorts what remodeling actually looks like because a lot of it isn’t entertainment. 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. The hosts often are not the ones actually doing the job, but an army of contractors behind the scenes to complete everything quickly to get the show finished. 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. Home Advisor does not do a great job of vetting job types, so someone looking for drywall repair in their kitchen and says it’s a kitchen remodel gets included in their average kitchen price. This tends to greatly skew the results down.
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 this guide out and you should find it very helpful for you!

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.
