My husband and I worked with Cornerstone Remodeling to renovate primarily our kitchen, but ultimately, largely the first floor of a home we recently purchased - a job that included moving walls to optimize the footprint of the kitchen and modifying the location of a laundry room. From Day 1 until project completion we have had a wonderful experience with Cornerstone. We worked primarily with Lauren, Molly, and Chris during the design process and Mike who was our on-site point person during the execution of work. Each member of the team was easy to work with and did an excellent job bringing our vision to light. It was impressive how quickly they locked onto our aesthetic and style - making the selection process incredibly streamlined and easy (especially for us, parents of young children who are often under intense decision fatigue). We received ample communication throughout and the work is high quality. In short - we love our new space! 10/10 - we would recommend Cornerstone Remodeling!

We recently used Cornerstone to renovate a full bathroom. Everyone at Cornerstone was great to work with. Molly was incredibly responsive and, together with Heath, quickly addressed any issues we had to ensure that we were happy with the end result. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. We have done a lot of home renovations in the past and Cornerstone was by far the best to work it. We would definitely use them again!

We just had a mudroom/laundry room built and worked with Molly, Chris and Javier. We have been so happy with the project, their communication and the quality of their work. We are so satisfied that we are moving on to remodeling our kitchen using Cornerstone! Can't wait for the finished product! Thank you Molly, Chris and Javier!

We had a great experience with Cornerstone remodeling on our 1st floor and deck. They handled any issues that came up quickly and produced a great end result. We would highly recommend them as a great firm to work with and hope to use them for future projects in our house.

We hired Cornerstone remodeling for a master bath, kitchen remodel that included new flooring for the entire first floor. The end result is absolutely beautiful. We truly appreciated the patience and ease of the initial design phase. The bathroom layout was challenging due to the space available. Kyle and Hannah offered multiple designs, met our questions and requests with a positive attitude and provided excellent suggestions. They worked with us until we got it just right. After the designs were set, the fun part of selecting materials began. What felt overwhelming was made easy and fun with the designer assigned to our project. Hannah was an absolute pleasure to work with. She has an excellent eye for color and space. The end result is a cohesive design that is pulled together with the design elements we chose. One word of advice for both Cornerstone and future customers, know your appliance selections before ordering cabinets. We weren’t aware of the level of importance of this step. You would think that refrigerators have standard sizes but they don’t. It’s more general. Understanding what a 36” range looks like compared to a 48” range will make a big difference knowing what is then available for counter space and cabinet options. Design changes after cabinets are ordered are nearly impossible. For us, all appliances were available for delivery in about 3 weeks with the exception of the range, which wasn’t available for 3 months. The kitchen was finished almost a month before the range arrived. Understanding when to place the order is helpful. Cornerstone recommends a local appliance company that is reputable and easy to work with. It took a couple of weeks to work through all of the options and make our choices. We started a little too late and experienced some frustration because of that. What impressed us most was the quality workmanship, professionalism and respect for our home shown by every Cornerstone employee and also every sub contractor provided for the project. We’ve had other smaller projects in our home and can’t say the same. It’s obvious that Cornerstone has high standards and expectations for anyone they send to their customer’s homes. The end result for the bathroom, first floor flooring and kitchen is absolutely spectacular. Look at their instagram and you will see. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company to family and friends and already have.

A big thank you to the entire Cornerstone Remodeling team. Recently completed entire remodel of kitchen, master bath, hall bath, and vanity. Completed an extensive search of all remodelers in the Howard County area. Cornerstone website was easily the most informative of all, gave us a great starting point, and led us in the right direction. Cornerstone took it from there and the results were stunning. Results were so good, we recently signed the contract for complete exterior remodel.

Working with Cornerstone Remodeling was truly a pleasure. They created the owner's bathroom of our dreams, in a professional and timely manner. They were always responsive to any and all of our questions or concerns. The quality of work performed by the team was world class. Every time we walk into the spa-like space we are filled with a sense of thankfulness and satisfaction. Cornerstone is the best and you will not have any regrets after hiring them.

We completely finished our basement using Cornerstone and couldn’t be happier. They were highly responsive throughout the entire process, and helped design a basement that incorporated some challenging basement limitations (the rough-in was not in an ideal location). They were a pleasure to work with and if we need any other home remodeling services we would definitely involve them.

We used Cornerstone Remodeling to update our kitchen. We got a more functional kitchen, more storage, more countertops and cabinets, and very very beautiful hardwood floors throughout our first floor. The contractor Javier was excellent. What I did not get was a light and bright kitchen, which I asked for. The dark gray lower cabinets with black hardware, which we did choose with the approval of our designer, are cold and industrial-looking. Some of the subcontractors took no care to protect newly installed materials. A new window was measured incorrectly, causing a delay, and someone "forgot" to widen 2 doorways (which was listed clearly on the contract) causing me much stress to convince Cornerstone to do what was promised.

From the very first interaction with Chris and Hannah my experience was EXCELLENT! On that video call they shared their expertise about how our bathrooms and basement family room could be remodeled. They really heard what I said and translated it into a visual rendering that enabled my husband to visualize what the finished rooms would look like. From there they used the Co Construct platform that allowed me to see the project schedule, financial summary and messaging with the team all in one place. Communication was excellent. All e
