The lead craftsman, Mike, was outstanding in both his trade skills and his communication, response and interaction with the owners.
Tony, the lead on our project and the guys that came to help with some of the bigger work were all super to work with. I do not remember all there names, but they all worked great as a team to get things done!!
Criner staff stayed in touch with me throughout the planning project until the entire job was completed. They were totally "on it".
We liked the process and its concept. Having a documented design with supporting "what if" capabilities to actually achieve the design was a treat. Then, the execution was first rate.
Robert Criner Remodeling is an exceptional company. Everyone is extremely professional; has exceptional attention to detail; excellent quality; quality control was supberb; craftsmen were polite, easy to work with, and took great pride in their work; excellent coordination and communication. Any concerns were immediately addressed. We highly recommend this company.
Thank you so much for the kind words! It’s always encouraging when customers acknowledge the good work of our team. It was a pleasure working on your beautiful home!
The design portion was extremely helpful in deciding layout, colors and materials. The crew working on our renovation were very accomodating and knowledgeable. I'm impressed that Criner Remodeling keeps their crew on a project until it is completed instead of pulling their crews to work on other jobs. Reputation, expertise and quality. A very well run organization. Cathy M.

In planning a remodel of our master bath and adding a walk-in closet to the outside of our home, our tension was running high as we contemplated which contractor to hire. Many times with past projects, something would usually come up and there would be disappointment. After our initial contact with Criner Remodeling, from that first call until the end of the project, we could not be more thrilled with our experience. All expectations were laid out ahead of time from selection of materials and finishes to a detailed budget. Everyone we had contact with from the office staff to our Project Manager, Tony Domingos, were polite, knowledgeable, and extremely capable at their jobs. Communication was immediate either by phone or email. Tony was on the job promptly every day without fail, checking in with us in case there were questions, pleasantly whistling while he worked, supervising all trade contractors, and thoroughly cleaning up every evening (even vaccuming). There was absolutely no stress on our part throughout the entire remodel. We were contacted several times afterward to check to make sure we were satisfied with everything. I would not hesitate to use Criner in the future or to recommend them.
Ben Rooker was exceptional as the initial contact. Very polite, knowledgeable, and not at all pushy. Ebony Stephenson was also a delight to work with. She listened to my thoughts and ideas and made excellent suggestions. She was very patient as I picked out finishes, meeting me in showrooms, and was open when I wanted to make changes along the way. Terry Thomas was always pleasant, available and informative when I called with questions and came out several times to check in that all was going as planned. Lastly, I cannot say enough about Tony Domingos. I was so dreading a long project with my home being upside down and having people in an out. My fears were unwarranted with Tony. He was here promptly every morning, worked hard all day, was usually heard pleasantly whistling to himself, cleaned up thoroughly and was overall a pleasure to have around. His attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship could not be beat. Thank you, Tony, for a job well done, above and beyond expectations!
Quick response with good communication, no high pressure sales, confidence with process after home visit and sit-down discussions with Ben and Mr. Criner. Also, the fact that one lead would be on my job the entire time and would be there personally every day to manage trade contractors while they worked.
The fact that things were all arranged in advance, from final design choices to scheduling, to budget. No surprises or add-ons unless initiated by me after the fact. Friendliness of everyone I had contact with at Criner. Lastly, the attention to detail and outstanding craftsmanship by Tony and trade contractors.
After completing our sixth major project, we are completely satisfied with the quality, creativity, and functionality. They are highly professional and stand behind their product.
We had several bad experiences in the past with other contracting companies. Since we have been with Criner Remodeling, we have been very happy. We found that the finished projects look great and if we have any problem at all, they stand behind their work 100%.
This was our sixth major remodeling contract with Criner Remodeling. We have been completely satisfied with each project. Years ago we saw that Criner Remodeling received many awards and that helped us decide to use them for the first time. We have been pleased ever since.
Criner Remodeling found a garage floor covering that is durable and does not peel or flake under the car tire tracks. They also found a creative solution to hide the air handler, hot water heater, and storage by enclosing them in closets with louvered doors to allow for air circulation. They also found ways to properly seal our existing garage doors to keep debris from funneling into the garage area. The garage is not only functional, it actually looks like a room.
Tony Domingoes was fantastic, as usual, as our project manager. Ben Rooker and Terry Thomas are truly the best at what they do in design and production, respectively. And thank you Robert Criner for conducting a final walk through with us in order for us to work together on what should be on the closeout punchlist.
Criner Construction provided the highest quality and most professional and pleasant customer service during our home project. Criner Construction staff exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend them. In fact, we have just signed on for another construction project with Criner Construction because were were so pleased with the quality of their work and personnel.
This is a first rate company with high standards and very skilled people who have been very good to work with. If we need further work done, we will gladly call Criner.
We were highly pleased with our Home Remodeling experience with Criner Remodeling. www.crinerremodeling.com/ We found out about them through other work in Marlbank Cove-- their reputation developed over the last 35 years is well deserved. Their recent recognition at the national level gives both us or any future buyers of our home complete confidence in the additions. They are clearly a company that can handle all sizes and complexities of projects. Our remodel wasn’t very extensive but their expertise and know-how headed off potential problems and resulted in an outstanding design and project execution. Also, little details like having a consistent on-site project manager/lead carpenter made a huge difference. Their conscientious respect for us and our home, site cleanliness, attention to not only the big picture but also the details kept us extremely satisfied throughout. When an issue was encountered, the Criner team guided us through it with absolute integrity and transparency. Their agenda was ours and our long term satisfaction, not just trying to talk us into something that might work better in the short term.
Michael Guinn was the lead carpenter on our job. He was always professional, courteous, punctual. Michael worked very hard to make sure we were satisfied with the work done and his work was always first-rate. We could not have been happier having him on the job.
