Great Company to work with, we have partner with Fiferum GC and they are great.

They stand to quality over anything else.
A company that works based on values its priceless. We highly recommend Fiferum construction.

Wouldn’t hesitate to send referrals and work with them over and over again.

We hired Fiferum Construction this past summer to stain our deck and back stoop and build stairs leading onto the deck. Chelsea and Alex were very communicative and always responded promptly.

The stain on the deck turned out great and has held up beautifully so far (5 months later). They were also great about coming back out to fix an issue we noticed long after the work was complete– the new deck steps had rendered the spigot inaccessible but Alex was able to quickly relocate the spigot and made the necessary stain touch ups to the steps.


Shannon Haney-Jenkins


We hired Fiferum to repair/replace a fascia board under our roofline and replace a double window on our 20+ year old home.

I was impressed from the beginning with Alex & Chelsea’s clear communication and appreciated the thorough assessment. Although we encountered delays in the completion of our projects due to supply chain issues, we are glad we went with Fiferum.

We are ultimately pleased with the outcome and can attest to the care & craftsmanship Alex puts into his work.

We hired Fiferum to complete an accessibility related renovation to our home and we are very pleased with their work.

They are communicative, responsive, friendly and keep a clean work area.

The quality of the work is very high. Would absolutely hire again and give a high recommendation!


Rebecca Vargha


Exellent family owned local business. I need to have siding replaced on my home in preparation for painting the exterior and Fiferum Construction does outstanding work.

The quality of their job and the clear communication are excellent. The crew is polite and pick up the debris from the job site consistently.

They do high quality work and explain the process from start to finish. A superior experience to have Fiferum do a project! Thank you.


Katherine Shakespeare Broderick


Alex and Chelsea were so great to work with! Communication throughout the entire process was thorough and timely. We hired Fiferum to expand a hallway closet into a large pantry, which involved knocking down multiple walls, making design decisions mid-project once we could see what space was available, installing a new wall, hanging drywall, and installing laminate flooring.

It looks amazing! We felt enough trust from communication early on that we scheduled Alex to do the work while we were out of town and out of his way – he took care of ensuring our house was locked up and all well when we returned. We’d hire them again in a heartbeat!

Stacy Cox


Fiferum Construction replaced multiple damaged posts holding up our large deck and screened-in porch. They also stained our deck, front porch and an area off of our basement. From the first contact, they were incredibly responsive and professional.

They showed up when they said that they would and also kept me updated on the work, the timeline and every step along the way. We’ve worked with several builders and contractors over the years and this was by far the best experience. In addition, the quality of work and care taken during the job far exceeded our expectations.

I highly recommend Fiferum and intend to use them again for any other work we need to have done in the future!

I have worked with Alex and Chelsea for years now on both personal and professional projects.

Fiferum does quality work that they guarantee, and they communicate at every step of the process. We previously had them paint the cedar siding on our house.

When we noted a few months later a few areas where the paint appeared to be cracking, they returned promptly to identify and fix the issue.

We hired them again to stain our deck and address water damage on some soffit and facia boards. They did great work, and we’d hire them again in a heartbeat.


Leslie Simon


Highly recommend! We’ve used Fiferum for 3 jobs and have been highly satisfied with their work on each project.

My husband is very sensitive to drywall dust and the crew kept this in mind spending extra time to clean up.

They are very timely and responsive with email communication which is a huge plus.

We will definitely call on them again for future work.


Heather Slane


We had Alex and his team replace our deck flooring and railings in teh fall of 2021.

Despite delays in obtaining the materials (our fault for choosing manufactured wood in a specific color!) they were careful to keep us updated on the delivery of the materials and modified their calendar to schedule our installation as soon as the materials were available.

The entire project was finished in just a few days. When one of the boards began to pop up within a few months, they came back within days of being notified to fix it at no cost. I would certainly use them again for future projects.
