In the summer of 2017, we bought an existing home in Easton to which we wanted/needed to make many small changes, as well as total redo’s of two bathrooms and relocating the laundry. Most of the house was repainted, carpet was replaced with laminate and a split-ductless AC was installed. We had a good amount of electrical, plumbing, tiling and carpentry work done. To make matters more interesting, we were frequently travelling to Massachusetts and back when the work began and living in the house during the 3 month project. 9 hour drives with spotty cell phone reception made communication challenging.
Ron was the perfect person to lead our renovation job. He’s very knowledgeable about building and renovation, current best practices, building codes, etc. He was patient when explaining possibilities and limitations to us so we could make informed decisions.
The Carrion team includes specialists in framing, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, sheet rock and painting, etc., as well as people with multiple skills who can deal with unexpected needs as the job progresses. All members of the Carrion team were pleasant, good workers and people we trusted in our home even when we weren’t there. They cleaned up at the end of each day and were very thoughtful of the fact that we had to live in the construction zone for 3 months.
It was obvious from the start that Ron is aware his customers don’t have unlimited budgets. He works with you to keep costs within reason, while still ensuring that materials and the work will last for the future.
Ron takes great pride in leaving behind a professional-looking job. This can be difficult when you’re doing a retrofit in an existing home with walls that aren’t square or areas that are hard to access. He takes the time to address the problems properly, leaving behind an aesthetically pleasing result.
Ron cares deeply about his customers, both old and new. When a nearby commercial building had a disastrous roof leak due to work done by a different contractor, Ron explained to us that the owners needed his immediate help and he had to take some of his crew off our job temporarily. We understood completely. He kept some of his people still working for us and got the whole crew back to us as soon as possible. When we ourselves had a problem this winter with an area of the house on which his crew hadn’t worked, he gave us advice on how to deal with it and offered to get people over to help us quickly if we needed them. His advice worked, so we didn’t need his crew. But his willingness to continue the relationship and help out was much appreciated.
We would absolutely recommend Ron Carrion and his team. He’s a great guy and the whole team felt like family by the time the job was done.

I'd like to share with you the wonderful experience I had this winter! We have had been in our home for 28 years, raising 4 children and entertaining often in those years. Entertaining was always enjoyable, but I always felt my kitchen was a 28 yr old kitchen. We had upgraded the floor and countertops about 16 yrs ago and it got us by but was nothing to look at. In November of 2007, I spoke with Ron Carrion of Carrion Home Repairs and discussed the renovation of our kitchen, I told Ron what I wanted to see and he not only made suggestions but gave me the pros and cons of my decisions. This is very helpful from a professional. The project was started on January 6th with the ripping up of our tile floor. Carrion's crew came in ripped out our kitchen entirely, removing cabinets, small walls, appliances, and the tile floor. The next step was installing some new wallboard and preparing the kitchen for the upgrades. The crew was extremely professional and cleaned up after each day's work, I was very pleased! Ron then mapped out how I wanted the kitchen, he was very open to my opinions and his sole purpose was to please me and my husband, as he said, because it was our kitchen and we should be pleased with the end product. I liked that about Carrion Home Repair, always putting the customer first. After the floor, they painted the entire area getting no paint on the new hardwood. They installed our cabinets beautifully. After the granite was installed the crew came out and finished the trim work and completed the kitchen. I can't tell you how happy I am with this huge project! Ron is a perfectionist and when it's your home that's exactly what you want! Our kitchen from start to finish took a little less than 2 months. I couldn't be happier and would recommend Carrion Home Repair to everyone who wants a perfect job!
My wife and I hired Ron Carrion to repair our basement and restore our home to meet code, following a disaster. Another contractor had to come to repair water leakage into our basement, and, in the process, caused our front basement concrete block wall to collapse, causing our new home to be condemned. Mr. Carrion agreed to take on the job of repairing and waterproofing the basement. He did a great job. We were totally pleased to find a contractor who was willing to take on such a major job and could not have been happier with the outcome. This was 5 years ago and we have since hired Mr. Carrion for serveral small improvements and have had nothing but exemplary workmanship, dependability, products and clean-up, always done within the timeframe assured.
We could not more highly recommend hiring Carrion Home Repair, Inc for any construction job.
Dear Mr. Ron Carrion,
I have now had sufficient time to reflect on and enjoy the work your people did on my house. It all started when I had you do the laundry room floor which had buckled from a water leak. That work was so well done, it made me comfortable to try the other dreams I had in my 23 year old house.
Being on the water I get tremendous winds. The windows howled. Why not replace the window with one big window. As long as we're doing that, lets cut a window into my second floor bedroom wall. Both were done not only to my complete satisfaction but way beyond what I could have hoped for.
I hated the dark of the woodwork in my house. You painted the kitchen cabinets which tied into the new Corian in the kitchen. Also the walls of the great room. Another winner! Why not paint the bedroom? Voila, it was done.
Could you lay me a cement slab for my Generator house and my barbeque? Done and perfect.
We are awaiting clearance from the Planning Commission to construct a second story porch. If your other work is an indication of what it will be like, it will be a masterpiece. I heard a Speech once in which the speaker, a Baptist minister, said, "You cannot pay a man for his what is his excellence; you can only thank him for it."
I thank you for your excellent work.

We have used Carrion Home Repair, Inc for more years then I can recall. Ron has always made sure that when we scheduled for painting and minor repairs that Mike & Sam were there on time - on the day.
Their work is professional and they take no short cuts. In addition, they are pleasant and fun to be around. We always end the commited time period (completed) with a lunch for them. They just seem like part of the Robert Morris Inn family to us.
