About Us

Founded in 2004 by Delaware native, Walter “Reds” Ferris, Ferris Home Improvements began with only one full-time crew member – himself – but has since grown steadily over the years, and now employs a full-time crew that runs several trucks throughout the day. Our team has over 40 years of experience, specializing in both commercial and residential indoor and outdoor improvements. FHI completes hundreds of jobs each year. In addition, our crews of highly-skilled craftsmen have been hand-picked from local areas over the years.

Being a locally-owned and operated contracting company, Ferris Home Improvements is a considerable asset in an industry that has a tough reputation for establishing trust. Seeing our customers at various locations in the community on a regular basis, we are committed to never leaving a job that we're not proud to put our name on.

Giving Back to Our Community

We Take Pride in Serving Our Neighbors with Trust

Committed to the community we serve, FHI regularly sponsors local sports teams, donates to programs designed to improve the community, provides maintenance services to the elderly in need, and supports local food and gift drives during the holidays.
“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.”
