Chicone Builders has been serving the Finger Lakes and the Southern Tier, NY as general contractors and finish carpenters for over 60 years.
After returning home from World War II Salvatore Chicone, the son of Italian immigrants, went to work with his brother as a carpenter. In 1953 he and his brother opened their own business. Following his brother’s retirement in 1971, Salvatore partnered with his son David and together they ran Chicone Builders for the next 15 years.
In 2003, Chicone Builders embarked on a new journey with the opening of Chicone Cabinetmakers, when Vincent Chicone (David’s son and Salvatore’s grandson) joined the business. This project blended years of contracting experience with a love of and devotion to fine woodworking.
Chicone Builders and Chicone Cabinetmakers operate out of Montour Falls, NY. Salvatore passed away in 2011 at the age of 89, but his legacy and love of woodworking lives on in the work of his son and grandson.
