Ferrera Construction delivered in every way possible for our porch project. Manuel's attention to detail and amendable skill set allowed us to transform our porch into our own oasis. He helped remedy foundational issues and provided an experienced and creative perspective that saved us thousands. We'll recommend Manuel to all our family, friends and neighbors and look forward to employing his services again.

Ferrera Construction exceeded our expectations in every way. After seeing their master craftsmanship on our neighbor's front porch, we met with Manolo who gave us a competitive bid, recommendations for materials, and a specific timeframe for building our front porch and back deck. He and his team were on-site every day, sometimes even Saturdays, and completed our project on time. Manolo is a gentleman and a master carpenter. We highly recommend Ferrera Construction.

— Kevin, Montclair

Fererra Construction accomplished something that most contractors can't: they actually exceeded our expectations. Their level of professionalism, attention to detail and collaborative communication was so appreciated and needless to say, our bathroom renovation is absolutely gorgeous.

In having encountered the vagaries of contract work with 30 years of home ownership, Manuel Ferrera is the best — our numero uno! Our experience in modernizing a kitchen and bathroom encountered several surprises: uneven cabinet doors, mis-cut granite. It was a challenge. The saving grace was Manuel Ferrera, owner of Ferrera Construction.

His standards for craftsmanship are so far above modern day ‘slam, bam, here I am’ construction that you will be more than pleasantly surprised. He brings a designer’s insight, a passion for identifying manufacturing flaws and will frequently ask: "this can be done several ways, how do you want it to look?" He carefully suggested project design enhancements that were ‘eye popping’. Also ask his recommendation for electrician and plumbing contractors. He’s vetted some that bring the same craftsmanship to your project.

— Lin, Caldwell

Modernizing a kitchen in a 100 year old house is challenging, but I found that our contractor smoothed the process while offering design enhancements that worked well. He identified issues early and made suggestions that saved us time and money. I really liked the way he was careful and cleaned up each night before leaving. We never found a stray nail during construction. He also had his crew clean up the basement from demolition debris — they were dusting in the basement! I was very impressed.

His project estimate was spot-on. There were no additional charges at the end of the project — unless I asked him to do something extra. The bottom line is that his craftsmanship is superb. He is careful, and detail-oriented. When the granite contractors came in they were impressed that we had corners that were actually 90 degree angles. We used his electrical sub-contractor who was also very good. We were so impressed that we have contracted with Manny for three additional projects.

I hired Ferrera Construction to renovate my dilapidated garage. First and foremost, we hired Manuel without getting any other bids. We knew he was honest by the way he carried himself and charged us a fair price. The work was done within the time given which was pretty fast! He did everything we expected without the pain of messy contractors destroying your property. Everyone he hires is polite and seemed to be hard workers. The result is that we are very happy with our new garage! We are so happy we will be hiring him for more projects. I highly recommend.

— Luigina, West Orange

We hired Manuel Ferrera Construction because of the reputation he has earned on several of the jobs we saw from an interior designer who recommended him. His work is exceptional and his eye for detail is second to none. He completed the job within the time frame and budget we had specified and went above and beyond the job specs to make sure the job looked immaculate. We are extremely pleased with the master bathroom he renovated for us. I would and will hire Manuel Ferrera again for upcoming projects. I highly recommend him for his professionalism, work ethic and craftsmanship.

— Jim Esposito Photography, Caldwell

We had a very positive experience with Manuel and his construction team for our full bathroom gut renovation project. I appreciated Manuel’s direct communication and project updates throughout the construction duration. His estimates for the work are fair and reasonable and we especially liked the fact that he completed the work in a timely manner. Their attention to detail is exceptional. I would definitely recommend Fererra Construction and would use them again for future projects.

— Doug, Northern New Jersey

We hired Ferrera Construction to complete 2 separate projects, first the backyard exterior door and second a backyard patio roof. Both projects from start to finish Manuel was great to work with. From the pride he takes in his work to the schedule he maintains. He always showed up when he said he would, which is one of the more frustrating things contractors do. He did an amazing job all around, we receive so many compliments which speaks to the kind of work he does.

— Sal and Jerianne, Nutley

Manuel is a professional who knows his craft well. He communicates honestly about timelines and the realities of a project. He is also organized and tidy -- a rare quality in my experience with hired construction work. Manuel has completed 2 major projects in my home (reinforcing the structure and bathroom renovation) and we will continue to reach out to him for future projects.
