A little bit about our history

Robert Criner founded the firm in 1977 as a one-person operation. He soon had to hire additional employees to keep up with increasing demand, and in 1985, the company was incorporated. Today, Criner Remodeling has 11 full-time employees who focus entirely on remodeling private residences. This laser-like focus on one aspect of the construction industry gives us the knowledge and expertise to handle the most challenging home remodeling tasks with excellent results.

Some of the awards we’ve received

  • For 2013, Criner received the Guildmaster Award with highest distinction. This is the 3rd year in a row the company has been given this honor.
  • Hampton Roads magazine readers chose Criner to receive awards for excellence in both kitchen and bathroom remodeling for 2013.

What you can expect when working with us

Every job we take on follows a proven pattern that enables us to provide our customers with the very best service. The steps involved in this process break down as follows:

  1. Our first contact will most likely take place over the phone. During that time, we’ll complete a lead sheet that includes your contact information and basic information about the project.
  2. This form is sent to Robert Criner, who will review it and then call you back to discuss the project and set up a time and date for an in-home visit.
  3. Robert will look the project over, make suggestions, receive feedback, and provide a rough estimate for the entire project. There’s no fee for this service.
  4. Should you choose to proceed, Criner Remodeling will prepare a set of formal plans along with a formal estimate. You will, in exchange, sign a design agreement assigning us responsibility for carrying out the job. For example, if you want to remodel your master bath, then Criner will create a set of bathroom remodeling plans.
  5. Our staff will meet with you in our office to finalize plans for the project. We will then add the project to the company’s assignment list and work will commence as soon as possible.

If all this sounds good to you, then we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to making your home remodeling dreams come true.
