Cortese Construction Services Corp. History
Founded in 1951, Cortese Construction Services has traveled a long road to get where they are today. Two brothers, Frank and Nick Cortese, came to the U.S.A. with nothing 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.
Cortese Bros., as it was called on their DBA – because neither Frank nor Nick could spell "Brothers" – was born in 1951 as a concrete company in the basement of Frank's house. Specializing in driveways, foundations, garage floors and all flatwork, Cortese Construction Services thrived as a leader in the concrete industry. In addition to the concrete company, the brothers bought and built over 65 units of apartments all over WNY, all of which are still owned and operated by Cortese Construction. With an eye for detail and a quality reputation that was unmatched in the industry, Cortese Construction soared into its next generation on top of its industry.
Domenic Cortese, son of Frank Cortese, made the company what it is today. Starting as a laborer on the concrete crew, Domenic learned the business the hard way. After years of being the laborer, the go-fer, the salesman, and the production manager, Frank retired leaving the legacy to Domenic. It was then that Cortese Construction Services shifted gears and became the leader of the Home Remodeling industry. While replacing concrete garage floors Cortese was approached to build a new garage. It was not in their scope of work but they gave it a shot and propelled themselves into the building industry.
Cortese Construction Services then excelled into kitchens, bathrooms, additions, and any other major renovations. Again, a quality reputation, attention to detail and employing the best carpenters in the WNY market, Cortese Construction was able to brand themselves as the premier contractor for all facets of home remodeling.
In 1997 Cortese Construction Services won The Better Homes and Gardens Magazine award for best Kitchen and best Bath in the United States. It was the first time in the magazines history that a kitchen and bath in the same house both won first place. Cortese Construction Services is probably most widely known for Domenic's radio show on WBEN News Talk 930am. Since April of 1989 Domenic has had his call-in Home Improvement Hour on Saturdays at 10am.
As Cortese Construction grew at a rate unparalleled in the contracting industry more and more services were offered. In the late 90's Cortese Brothers started a Handyman Division that was created for the small jobs that most contractors would turn away. Seeing a niche that needed to be filled, Cortese filled it and continued their success well into the 21st century where the next generation of Cortese were welcomed into the company.
Starting the same way their father did, the new generation of "Cortese Brothers" started with the company. Working their way up from laborers on the framing crews, to carpenters, and now into operations, Phil, Nick and sister Michelle Cortese have brought Cortese Construction Services into its third generation of quality contracting.
