How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I realized I had something different to offer the tight-knit Delaware network--a contractor that knows our community because I live in it! I know and respect the value of our small state's referral network because I was born and bred in Newark, Delaware and now live in Wilmington with with my wife and family. I'm a Newark High football alum who still is active in NCC athletics. You will see our family and employees around because we truly are your neighbors. I'm proud to see our customers again because our craftsmanship & service is the best, and I'm proud to put our family name on it. It's natural for us to give back to the neighborhood because it's in line with our company's focus - our customers. Repairing, renovating, and improving the value of your property not only makes your home a better place to live, but it also makes our community a better place to live and raise a family, which is what all of us want.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

Why Should You Choose Ferris Home Improvements?

We hold our head high when we see customers again; we are proud of our work & proudly your neighbor!

Ferris Home Improvement company is the best! From design elements working with Mike Z to the carpentry excellence of Glen and all the other subcontractors, it was a pleasure and they made our dream bathroom and walk-in closets a reality.

Review by in Newark, DE
Ferris Home Improvement was the best company we ever decided to go with. Their work was very professional. Our salesperson, Bill was a great help in helping us pick the right style of cabinets and the size that fit into the spaces we had. Bill was always on hand for us to ask any questions and to get things done. The cabinets, flooring, lighting and tile go together perfect. The installers, Glenn and Brett were excellent. From start to finish they were there on time and cleaned up every day. They even put up with all the questions we had, to which they answered every one of them. In the midst of getting the kitchen done we decided to have our living room and family room floors done also. Bill went right to getting them ordered and setting up the install date. Everything was done and it looks great.

Project: Repair Gutters
I highly recommend Ferris Home Improvements. I recently worked with Kristina to schedule an appointment for what I thought would be a roof repair. It turns out that it was not flashing around my chimney that needed replacing but drain pipes elbows on the front and back roof of the house to lead the water away from where the roof splits. Kristina was very professional and scheduled an appointment for me with Monty the following Saturday. He showed up promptly at 8am. He was very knowledgeable and was able to make the repair the same day that he came out to give me a quote. I appreciate his honesty and integrity especially since two other companies wanted to tear my roof apart! I would definitely recommend Ferris Home Improvement for your repair needs.

Review by in Bear, DE
Very happy that they fixed the leaking around my roof boot. The first day Monty came out he didn't have a ladder long enough to get up to the roof so I had to wait about a week for a return visit. When Monty came back he brought a longer ladder and a helper. They went up and took a photo of the place that needed repair. Gave me an estimate. I accepted the deal and the roof leak was fixed. It's rained twice so far and I don't see any water coming in around the boot. Thanks Monty.

Project: New Windows
We were very impressed with the quality of the work performed by Wayne and Zack. Their attention to detail made this project go smoothly from start to finish. We also appreciated how they cleaned up at the end of the window installations.
Response by Ferris Home Improvements: Thank for your review. We look forward to doing business with you again in the future. Have a great day! The Ferris Team

Chuck and Cedric did the installation for us today. They are very friendly and took great care of our property. They worked well together and did an excellent job in much less time that we thought it would take. Chuck was familiar with our unit as he did the hardwood flooring for the builder before we moved in. Talk about a small world! We will absolutely ask for them when the time comes for us to do the master bathroom. Thank you!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
