WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
— Susan P.
Corey from Core Remodeling Services was fantastic! He sat with my husband and I and walked us through the whole process of a kitchen remodel. He answered specific questions with ease. He clearly has lots of experience in various situations that add to his expertise. Stacey at the office was always warm and accommodating. I would absolutely recommend Core Remodeling without hesitation. They are not only professional, but a pleasure to work with.
— Sabrina C.
"This is just a great company to deal with. The quality of the employees, their reliability, and the outstanding finish work speaks volumes about how the business is run. No remodeling project goes perfectly smooth, but they tackle the issues with ease and involve the customer at every step. This is a group of neat, courteous, experienced professionals you will want to use over and over.
– Richard R. Deck Remodel from Douglas, MA
The insurance check we received was not sufficient to cover the cost of the deck, so we turned to Cory for help. He reviewed the insurance estimate, he then met with their adjuster at the work site to point out all the issues with the initial insurance estimates, and was able to negotiate a larger insurance payout so the job could be done right and up to the current building code. Due to this effort by Corey, there was no out-of-pocket cash outlay by my mother-in-law, which was really key to this entire project. All phone calls were returned on time, e-mails were answered timely and overall the communication process was great. The work was done as the timeline was laid out, no missed appointments or unscheduled delays. The project manager, Mike, was on the job the entire time and was able to walk me through any questions I had regarding the specific deck or the building code in general. Mike was always polite and informative, keeping us informed of progress; I think he went above and beyond. The office staff was also very professional, nice and polite. Overall, I would recommend Core Remodeling for any construction needs one might have. The experience was smooth and pleasant, the people I dealt with were knowledgeable, the work was timely and the deck came out great.
— Steve D. Winter Insurance Claim from Auburn, MA
"CORE Remodeling was absolutely fantastic. They are friendly and professional, and provided the kind of personal service that made us feel like their only clients, even though we know we are not. Corey and Mike listened to our ideas and desires for the project, and communicated well with me and my wife and responded to all of our questions before, during, and after the project with respect and straight answers. Their employees were on time, sociable, and worked like machines. After the job was complete, our only regret was that we hadn't asked them to do more. We are thrilled with our deck, and are definitely hiring them again for our next home improvement. I can not imagine a way to praise their professional and friendly team more highly."
— Bracken and Heather M. Deck Remodel from Framingham, MA
"We had a very good experience from beginning to end. Our bathroom remodel exceeds our expectations; it's exactly what we wanted. The guys were professional and thorough, and we were always kept up-to-date with what was happening regarding materials, scheduling, etc.. The app that we used was terrific. We, honestly, couldn't be happier with choosing CORE Remodeling and would absolutely use them again."
– Debbie D. Bathroom Remodel from Westborough, MA
— Water damage Insurance Claim Jeff C. Charlton, MA
“We recently used CORE Remodeling for a project related to water damage from this past winter. The team at CORE was extremely professional from start to finish. Corey was particular helpful creating a detailed estimate which helped tremendously with our insurance company. We would highly recommend CORE and will certainly engage their services again in the future.”
— Jeff C. Home Renovation from Charlton, MA
"I had a very old deck that needed to be replaced. I have had some bad experiences with contractors in the past so I was very particular about who I would hire for this project. CORE Remodeling put all my fears to rest and my project came out beautiful. First and foremost they were professional. Insurance? Yes. Designer? Yes. Permits? all taken care off. All paperwork, plans, expectations, etc were discussed and agreed upon. As it should be. That is not to say we didn't have bumps in the road, we did. When they took the old deck off the back of my house they found that almost the entire back wall of my house was rotted. The previous owner had build the old deck, not to code and there was some serious damage. CORE Remodeling had to build a new back side of my house before they could even begin construction. I really appreciated the fact that they took on this extra project outside of the scope of our original contract. Then when they removed the sliding glass door that accessed my old deck they found that the rot had extended into the floor of my house. Not good. Once again, like troopers, they repaired this also. Then, are you ready, I had a flood..... some things just don't go as planned. Well, the wonderful crew (Jason) actually spent an hour in my basement with a shop vac making sure the water didn't spread. In the end, I have a new deck that is not only beautiful, but safe and functional. I can't wait until the Spring when I can invite friends and family over to enjoy it. I will definitely be hiring CORE Remodeling to do my next project. I know I will be well taken care of, not taken advantage of."
— Carol L. Deck Remodel from Douglas, MA
"They provided a very professional proposal that had all the details of the job. Very impressive. It was what sold us on using this contractor. They always returned phone calls promptly and answered all our questions. They worked with us to design a deck that met all our needs. They worked with the building inspector to make him happy as well as us. Even though it was cold down by the lake and the walkway up to the driveway was killer, they did it all with a smile. They had to stop work due to multiple snow storms, so they protected all the supplies for the winter until the spring when they were back on the job without us having to prompt them at all. The professionalism and pride of workmanship in their organization, from start to finish is unmatched. I have no reservations about referring CORE Remodeling Services, Inc. to anyone."
— Nancy S. Deck Remodel from East Brookfield, MA
"We talked to many contractors before deciding on CORE Remodeling. It's not that the others were not good candidates but the attention to detail and the professionalism won us over from moment one. Corey had every single step of our bathroom written in an easy to understand layout complete with all estimates, quotes and cost. Our start and finish dates as well. His team was a professional, knowledgeable group and even adding a few projects in between was no problem. He was amazingly quick to reply to all questions and concerns! No waiting for a call back. We are so pleased with how every facet of this remodel was handled!"
— Kim M. Bathroom Remodel from West Brookfield, MA
"Very satisfied with quailty of work and professionalism. The workers paid attention to every detail and made sure everything was done correctly."
– Marty F. Kitchen Remodel from Shrewsbury, MA
"We were so thrilled with our bathroom renovation. CORE provided highest-quality work, friendly and professional service, and timely delivery. My husband and I lack any construction-related expertise, were working on a limited budget, and live in a very old house. Thus we felt pretty vulnerable - someone unscrupulous could have come in and told us we needed additional work costing a lot of money and we wouldn't have known any better. We felt safe with CORE and they performed the job they had promised within the budget they had promised. The online communication system was also fantastic - it made it fun and easy to keep track of progress, see what was ahead, and ask questions. Thanks for everything!"
– Sarah C. Bathroom Remodel from Lancaster, MA
“These guys exceeded my expectations. Work was done within budget and on-time. Very professional and I would highly recommend them for your next project.”
— Jay from Sturbridge, MA
"The work was a complete demolition and re-model of a 2nd floor bathroom, which involved removing an existing bathtub, moving an existing wall, and installing a walk in shower. The new shower was fully tiled, as was the floor. Project included new vanity, lighting, exhaust fan, fixtures, molding, and finish paint. This was a first class project from start to finish. It started with a quote that was clear, up front, and with a timetable for every step of the project.The job started on time and ended on time. Both Corey and Mike (project foreman)kept us informed at every step of the way, and are just so pleasant to deal with. No worries with these guys. Thecontracted professionals they used were first class,shared the same customer focus, and kept the work area and passages clean. We absolutely will use them for other work in our home."
– Dick & Kathie R. Bathroom Remodel from Douglas, MA
"We recently hired Core Remodeling to finish our basement. The area consisted of 4 rooms, a laundry room, a living space, a storage room and a utility room. Dave and Mike were professional and respectful. They communicated well and worked with us on some minor design changes that needed to be made. They worked well with their sub contractors and over saw all the work. Even when we ran into trouble with the flooring, Corey ensured us that it would be taken care of and even with that setback the project finished on time and beautiful. I would recommend Core Remodeling for your next project."
– John C. Basement Remodel from Sturbridge, MA
"Our home was nearly destroyed as the result of a flood. A cleanup company was sent in by the insurance company and they proceeded to absolutely gut our kitchen, living room and bathroom. CORE came in and worked with us on everything. They provided very valuable guidance for working with the insurance company. They provided very cost effective design suggestions so that we could make some great improvements and updates to our home without going over budget. We are so pleased with how everything came out. Our home is hardly recognizable now and looks beautiful. I really appreciate some of the creative solutions Mike and Corey came up with for some peculiar features in our home like a slanted bathroom ceiling that makes it difficult to fit a standard shower rod or a bump out in the bathroom wall/floor that makes it difficult to fit a vanity. Working with Corey and Mike was a pleasure. Their follow up was always prompt. All emails and texts were responded to very quickly. I was always pleasantly surprised to see that people were even working on our home over the weekends. We would absolutely hire CORE again for any work we need done."
— Paula M. Water damage Insurance Claim from Maynard, MA
“I contacted CORE Remodeling Services after seeing some of their work at a neighbor's house. The work was exceptionally well done. The owner spoke very highly of the company. We contacted CORE Remodeling for repair of some ice damage and the entire operation was first class from start to finish. The owner personally came to our house and spent a lot of time with us explaining his proposal. The work was done promptly and with absolutely ZERO headaches. All phone calls, texts, and emails were returned promptly. The crew was completely trustworthy. The work was expertly done. If you are looking for a soup to nuts contracting company that does excellent work at a fair price, your search is now over. If you are looking for some lowball, sleazeball company that you find on the back page of the comic books, go somewhere else.”
— Marshall H. Home Renovation from Holden, MA
"I was satisfied most that they were very professional. Corey follows up and returns phone calls. The workers were so sweet, funny, neat, and did a good job. They were three dimensional thinkers. They had the vision to take care of issues and make good design decisions. That was very impressive for carpenters. They really do it all."
— Patricia A. Bathroom Remodel from W. Boylston, MA
"From start to finish, CORE Remodeling (Corey, Mike and Dave) are first-class. They did two projects for us. A deck remodel where the deck was enclosed and a basement remodel. The deck overlooked the pool and we needed a place to enjoy where the mosquitos couldn't get us. Corey worked with us to come up with the design we liked within our budget. The best was his recommendation for 3 level windows so we could adjust the opening to keep rain out. Our friends have said the room makes you feel like you're in the tree tops. The second remodel was the complete build out of a basement. Our basement is a walk out to the pool and CORE Remodeling made a large room, with a full bath and wet bar. Needless to say, we spend a lot of time there. The workmanship was first rate, their subcontractors (paint, plumbing, electric) did a great job and work was completed on time and on budget. The words our friends use when describing the job are, 'Wow', 'Spectacular', 'Beautiful."
— Yale and Yurie S. Basement Remodel and Screenhouse Remodel from Sutton, MA
“CORE Remodeling is an A+ contractor. I had all my windows replaced, rot removed and sills replaced. Dave was impeccable. I will be using them again.”
— Lisa V. Window Replacements from Worcester, MA
"Amazing! If you want 'the white glove' treatment use CORE Remodeling. Corey and his team were extremely professional. All the contractors were great and I hardly felt that they was work being done inside my house. Each contractor left the area clean and they communicated with my husband and I on a regular basis. When problems came up (unavoidable) they solved the issues smoothly. It was well worth the price. It was an overall pleasant experience and I have a gorgeous new master bath that looks like a hotel spa! No hesitations selecting CORE Remodeling."
— Deborah F. Bathroom Remodel from Shrewsbury, MA
"They were easy to work with, they stayed within my budget, and they have high quality products. CORE went the extra mile to keep our home a functioning home. Despite the scope of the project, the dirt, dust and debris was confined to the work area. The in-process components were organized and the area swept-up each night. I'm and engineer. I had a lot of questions each day. The guys listened to my questions and gave polite, responsive and most importantly informed answers. I never felt like I was being blown-off. Corey, Mike and Steve: Bravo!!! "
— Bruce W. Kitchen Remodel from Worcester, MA
"CORE helped us with the first phase of a kitchen remodel. We were very pleased with the entire experience. We have two infants, and Dave, the project lead, was very respectful of our space and needs. He kept noise and dust to a minimum, and communicated with us constantly to let us know what was happening and when. Corey and Dave even made sure that their subcontractors respected our needs. Dave is a details guy, and takes pride in his work, which is obvious in the workmanship. He made adjustments when unexpected issues came up, and went out of his way to identify and help correct some issues that weren't strictly in the scope of the work. Most importantly, we were very happy with the final product, and we would definitely hire CORE again."
— Jeff B. Kitchen Remodel from Millbury, MA
"We are very pleased with the recent renovation of our two upstairs bathrooms. The CORE team (especially Mike and Steve) was extremely professional, responsive, and thoughtful about the disruption caused by renovation. They made sure that they, and other subcontractors, were neat and left things as cleaned up as possible at the end of the day. We were impressed with the constant communication back and forth throughout the project, and immediate attention to any glitches. The workmanship was of high quality, and we will certainly use them for future renovation projects."
– Jeff and Lynne B. Bathroom Remodel from Sutton, MA
"Corey and his foreman Mike were very professional, and were very easy to deal with. The work was completed quickly, and everything was perfect. My wife and I are very happy with our new porch and how great the house looks. We are looking forward to enjoying our new porch for many years to come. Mike and his crew were very nice to my wife, and were very tolerant of her two little dogs even when they went for their ankles. I would recommend Core remodeling to anyone looking to do any project on their home."
– Dan C. Farmer's Porch from Charlton, MA
"Our kitchen/dining room renovations would not be what it is today if it hadn't have been for the CORE Remodeling. They were extraordinarily creative in helping design it and the quality of the material is phenomenal, we are thrilled."
– Beverly B. Kitchen/Dining Remodel from Malrborough, MA
" I was very pleased with the work performed at my home residence recently. The Windows replaced were a little tricky because of their odd size. The crew arrived on the scheduled day and time and efficiently replaced my windows. Remarkably the Windows look like they were just popped in! The work was seamless and the result increased the value of my home. Not only did Core Remodeling crew work neatly but the clean up was just as excellent. I have recommended Core Remodeling services to my coworkers for the quality and professionalism of their work and give them an A+ for customer satisfaction "
– Laurel G. Window Replacements from Oxford, MA
"My story is the classic remodeling nightmare. Everything that could go wrong did. In 2013 I was looking for a contractor to put a new bathroom in my basement. I had a few companies including CORE come out to provide me with a quote. Although I was impressed with CORE’s professionalism, they were a little higher than the other companies. So, like most people I thought how much of a difference can it make and I went for the lower priced company. My decision quickly turned into a nightmare. The company I hired was so bad, I ended up firing them and finishing the job myself. The plumbing and electrical was done very improperly and not to code. Because of the bad plumbing the pipes froze this past winter and my basement flooded. When I tried to contact the company, they were nowhere to be found. I tried dealing with the insurance company and they were offering a very low amount of money for the repairs. Without a second thought, I called CORE and did not plan to call anyone else. Corey, the owner, met with me and created a detailed proposal, verifying all the repairs that were needed by code that the insurance company overlooked. In the end, I received the right amount of money that was needed to properly complete the project. I hired CORE that day.Thanks to CORE my nightmare has now turned into a beautiful basement and new bathroom. I was impressed so much by their entire team’s professionalism, responsiveness, aptitude to listen to everything that I wanted and their quality of work that I am having CORE rebuild my front porch before winter and scheduling them to build a new deck in the spring. A tip to anyone reading this, sometimes the cheapest choice, ends up being the most expensive option. Don’t make the same mistake I did. "
