Jay Cipriani

Jay Cipriani


“For me, home remodeling is all about the families we serve. They trust us, and because of that, we’re always looking to improve ourselves both personally and professionally. Their appreciation, the ongoing relationships, and the concerns we have for their families’ futures are a huge motivation. Nothing is more satisfying than a lasting client relationship.”

Jay founded Cipriani Remodeling Solutions in 1978. His father was also a contractor and this inspired Jay to enter the renovation business. Cipriani Remodeling Solutions has completed over 3,000 renovation projects throughout South Jersey and proudly continues to serve the community to this day.

Jay has been a speaker at numerous civic and professional organizations. He often lectures on what to do and what to avoid when undertaking a home improvement project. Jay has been featured on home improvement shows such as the Discovery Channel’s “Gimme Shelter” and “Rescue My Renovation” on the DIY Network. He has also written articles for Builder/Architect, a monthly trade magazine. And his company has won numerous awards for excellence in home remodeling. Jay strives to enhance his professional skills through industry programs. He has made a lifetime commitment to becoming a better leader, citizen, and individual.

Jay lives in Sewell with his wife Cindy. The couple devotes a great deal of time to helping others.

Mark Simone

Mark Simone

“It feels good seeing how much our clients love their completed projects. Sometimes we hear that they missed our guys or that their children are asking if the guys are coming back. That gives me an even greater feeling!”

He is heavily involved with supervision, training, and exploring new products and construction techniques. Mark also works to keep team members motivated.

Mark began his career in construction as a laborer and has advanced through the industry over the past 35 years. He has been with Cipriani Remodeling Solutions since 1992, and the company has earned three recent project manager awards under Mark’s guidance.

Cindi Cipriani

Cindy Cipriani

Design Team Support Leader

“Imagining the memories families will have in their new space fuels my imagination. For me, it’s all about the individuals, their needs, wants, and dreams. After all, home is where the heart is. I love becoming a part of their extended family. My mission is to remodel homes and hearts.”

Cindy’s interest in construction began at an early age when she was growing up in rural Pennsylvania. Her father had converted a one-room schoolhouse into the family’s two-story home. His vision instilled in Cindy a love of construction and design, and she would spend hours drawing house plans and learning about construction. She had once considered a career as an architect and has worked in the fields of residential and commercial construction for many years.

Cindy has won awards for her designs of kitchens, bathrooms, and additions. These designs combine great attention to detail when making the renovation process fun for her clients. She was voted “Designer Salesperson of the Year” by The Builder’s League of South Jersey in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Cindy spends time with her clients and gets to know their lifestyle as well as what they need and want from their renovation project, enabling her to envision the finished space. Cindy has a background as a professional organizer, which helps her create kitchens, bathrooms, and additions that take into account her clients’ specific space requirements and budget. She is also trained as an HVAC ductwork designer.

“Being able not only to design and draw new spaces but watch them come to life is the fulfillment of a childhood dream. Back then, I had no idea how fun it would be to shop with my clients and guide them in choosing every detail of their project! My goal is to connect on a personal level, so long after the project is finished, our friendship remains.”

Cindy met Jay when she owned her own home decorating and repair business. They are the parents of three sons and have a golden-doodle named Lexi. Cindy is also an award-winning author of the book, Moving Past the Death of a Loved One and is a certified grief recovery specialist. She also volunteers at Habitat for Humanity, The Mother/Child Center, and Cathedral Kitchen in Camden.
