Cerdel Construction Company, Inc.

Cerdel Construction Company and Cerbone Enterprises, Inc. are comprised of extremely talented individuals whose diversified disciplines are integrated to form a team capable of handling all of your estimating, engineering and construction needs. The appraisal is performed by Cerbone Enterprises, Inc. and the construction is performed by Cerdel Construction Company. This procedure ensures an arms-length transition from the insurance company.

Our team approach enables us to identify the unique characteristics of structures and locations, and to evaluate the replacement of cost according to site-specific prevailing wages and productivity of various trade disciplines. As members of the American Society of Professional Estimators, our estimates reflect values to the specific geographic location of the work site. Our diverse capabilities range from the custom home of a professional golfer in Florida to the historic Administration Building of Case Western Reserve University in Ohio to a peanut oil factory in Alabama. Cerdel has evaluated and repaired thousands of homes damaged by fire. We pride ourselves in returning a home to better than the pre-damaged condition.


We are so proud to be part of your team… Cerdel Construction’s preferred drywall subcontractor.

At Cerdel, We Have History

For over 40 years, Cerdel Construction Company and Cerbone Enterprises, Inc. have been serving the Insurance industry and both commercial and private home clients. From Hurricanes Hugo, Andrew and Katrina to the earthquakes in California, our teams have provided complete and detailed reports in a timely manner.

Our reports are designed to be used in building meetings, formal appraisals and litigation, as well as the preferred normal adjustment process. The greatest value of our reports; however, is that they are backed up by the ability to do all or part of the reconstruction. We are licensed contractors in New Jersey and Florida and have been qualified as building experts in 14 states.


Experience is What Makes Cerdel Stand Out

At Cerdel Construction, we believe that education and experience is what sets our business apart.
