1951-Cortese Serving WNY

Founded in 1951, Cortese Brothers Construction has traveled a long road to get where they are today. Two brothers by the name of Frank and Nick Cortese came to the U.S.A with nothing at all but an aspiration of living the American Dream. Without any knowledge of how the Western World operated, and a serious language barrier, Frank and Nick founded what is today one of the largest home remodeling companies in Buffalo and the surrounding WNY area.

In May of 2012- Cortese was honored as Buffalo Niagara's Business Ethic award recipient for their outstanding operation in day to day business and treatment of customers, later they also were recognized in local publication for this honorable ethical achievement.

At present day, Cortese Brothers Construction remains the elite contractor for any home remodeling needs. Offering services such as kitchen and bathroom renovation, additions, handyman services, window and door installation, disaster restoration and sunrooms it’s clear that Cortese Brothers Construction has and always will be “Your Man For Home Improvements”!
