distinguished homes built on  craftsmanship, service, and trust.

a commitment to craftsmanship, service, and trust.

For over three decades, Merrick’s foundation has been built upon three main elements: craftsmanship, service, and trust. As we have evolved over the years, collaboration, communication, and a step-by-step integrated process all contribute to a premier experience that is driven by personalization and efficiencies that our clients desire, and deserve to expect. We immerse ourselves into each assignment and obsess over the details as if it were our own. Therefore, if you are like-minded, Merrick is the best partner to build your home.

Constructing homes for discerning clients is the nature of our specialization and we believe the “extraordinary” emerges from a proven, customized approach where we seek to create a sincere kinship with all who are involved. For this reason, our smart, strategically-driven managers diligently collaborate with our clients to explore their needs, help solve their toughest challenges with an experienced perspective, and foster a beautifully-constructed residence that is right for them and is truly their dream home.

While every home Merrick builds is uniquely different, each receives the same degree of precision, dedication, and enthusiasm. As referrals and repeat business are key metrics of our success, it is imperative to us to not just be the team who builds your home, but to build a relationship of trust which you know you can rely on for years to come.



A dedicated team, fully invested in your project.

Merrick Construction (Merrick) was founded in 1989 by Timothy Merrick Cross, a native of Middletown Township, New Jersey. His vision and hard work, coupled with an exceptionally-curated team of craftsmen, continue to set Merrick apart as a top custom home builder within Monmouth County and beyond.

While the quality of our work is in a class of its own, what also differentiates Merrick is our honest, communicative, and transparent approach, hands-on interactions with our clients, commitment to staying within the client’s timeframe and budget, and an exceptional level of integrity and pride in our work.

Merrick’s team consists of key players in the field that include on-site project managers and lead carpenters who ensure that all projects run smoothly and efficiently, while high-end finish carpenters execute the work. In the office, our design team and support staff continue the communication process fluently, giving our customers peace-of-mind, by ensuring they are always available if there is a question or concern.

Collectively, we apply a proven method to estimating, scheduling, and planning to execute on a thoughtful and accountable approach to our construction process. Plus, we value long-standing, vetted relationships with reputable local subcontractors that are fully-licensed and insured, as we believe maintaining strong bonds with these partners helps to keep projects on course and completed on time/within budget.
