We are committed to establishing and building long-term relationships with every client through our industry experience, integrity, and professionalism. From the beginning to the end, our client is a meaningful part of everything we do.
What our clients are saying about us:
In the 21st century it gets more and more difficult to care for our church buildings, with costs constantly rising and dependable companies harder to find. When repairs and renovations are needed it is so important for churches to be able to find trustworthy and affordable craftsmen.
We have found just such a company in Cornerstone Builders Group. We have had the privilege of working with them on several large projects involving our church and school buildings.
For years we found it necessary to repaint our steeple every 5 to 8 years and the cost of this project grew greater and greater each time. After speaking with the professionals at Cornerstone Builders Group it was suggested that we use a PVC product which would never require painting and the cost was substantially less than painting. Using this product, we were able to re-cover our steeple and it looks like new.
Since that project we have also utilized Cornerstone Builders in doubling the size of a classroom, enlarging our school office, replacing all of the trim on the main church building and around the windows with the same PVC product and the replacement of all of the windows in our main church building with ones that are maintenance free and thermal efficient. We are already benefiting from the financial savings that these windows yield.
Leo Feola, founder, owner and native of Fair Lawn, could not have been more accommodating from our first project to our last project. There is no doubt that we will turn to them again and again for future projects.
Cornerstone Builders provided us with excellent service in every area we could have expected and more:
• Their professionalism and quality were A+
• They always started and finished their projects on time.
• They accomplished each project within our budget.
• They were courteous and made sure that they answered all of our questions.
• They were always available when we needed them.
• With our school project, they were very conscious of keeping the air clean for our children.
• Upon completion of the work, each area was thoroughly cleaned.
We look forward to working with Leo and Frank and Cornerstone Builders in the future and recommend them to you without any reservations. The Van Riper Ellis Broadway Baptist Church highly recommend Cornerstone Builders Group to you and thank them for their professionalism, reliability, dependability and quality workmanship.

Cornerstone Builders are excellent collaborative partners. Both Leo and Frank are accessible, understand our needs and concerns, easy to talk with and are able to see the project scope from the client’s perspective. We trust their work, instincts and their area of expertise.

I would like to encourage you to consider Leo Feola for your next Construction project. Leo recently completed a very high profile, three-year development and two-year construction project for us in the Montclair NJ market. This project consisted of brown-field redevelopment, and four story wood frame construction over podium with garage. Leo’s role as Project Manager for Ownership overseeing the General Contractor, was inclusive of budget controls, scope of work, quality control, monthly reporting and schedule. We benefited from his outstanding leadership and project management capabilities and remain grateful for his dedication, commitment, and professionalism which resulted in an on-time and under budget project.
I would not hesitate to hire Leo again if the situation arises and invite you to call me for my personal endorsement. I welcome the opportunity to convince you that Leo is deserving of your consideration and time.

I have been a customer of Mr. Feola for many years. He has done small and major projects for us. He rebuilt my home at the shore. The project was a complete renovation from the foundation up. He more recently did a renovation of our master bath that could be shown in any design magazine.
The experience with Mr. Feola is always professional. He takes pride in his work, is punctual, comes in at budget and leaves his jobs clean. Should we want any change he will accommodate our whims. When there are punch list items he addresses them and they are completed to our satisfaction.
I have no qualms about recommending him to my friends and family.
Michael Cooney, Homeowner
We hired Cornerstone to do a full redesign of the outside of our home. We had a very old colonial with original wood paneling. We knew we wanted a new HardiePlank finish, but we had a lot of questions about other changes like the trim work, building a portico, weatherproofing and more. Leo was great to work with and patiently helped us through the process to finalize all the details and get the job moving. We were missing a lot of important pieces having never done this before, so Leo engaged some of his trusted contractors to complete things we had not thought about or prepared for like designs, electrical/lighting changes and more.
We were amazed how in just a month or so, we could go from such an old and dated house to a brand new and beautiful new exterior. Leo and Cornerstone were top notch to work with and the quality of the work was great. I would recommend them to anyone. We love our new home. Thank you!
Mario Maffie, Mars Inc.
I’ve known Leo Feola for almost twenty years and the only contractor I trust to do any work in my house. The most recent project was the unexpected renovation of my kitchen. I was thrilled when Leo was able to get me a brand new kitchen within my budget. He is extremely patient and has an easygoing quality about him that immediately puts you at ease. He has a natural creative ability and is a skilled craftsman making any design come alive. He talks to you in terms that you can understand and makes you feel comfortable discussing ideas and asking questions. I love my new kitchen and look forward to the next project!
Tina Vivirito, Fair Lawn, NJ
Leo and his team at Cornerstone Builders Group are first class builders. Cornerstone completed the buildout for my office and I am so glad they were referred to me. From the planning stage to the opening, Leo was nothing but helpful and accommodating. They made sure I stayed within my budget and worked to get the job done within my timeline. I highly recommend their services not only for businesses but for your home building needs as well.

I would highly recommend Frank Cardone, and remain available to speak at length on his behalf and/or to provide more detail of his strengths and my past working relationship with him.

As a growing hospitality group, we were looking for a contractor that could handle multiple builds within a very tight timeline. Cornerstone Builders deftly undertook two back to back restaurant build-outs and helped transform them into true dining destinations. They were able to handle with ease the extremely high attention to design detail that is a vital part of our brand. From a massive barrel ceiling to the custom bars and millwork, we could not be more pleased with the finished results. The team at Cornerstone has a deep understanding of their trade and dependable sub-contractors who were able to complete our projects on time while meeting our brand standards. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any job requiring high quality work and thoughtful collaboration.
