Gino, Ryan, Justin and Eric Carrier,

If we wanted to stay in our present home, we knew major changes had to be made (washer/dryer from cellar to 1st floor, new kitchen and the addition of a 1/2 bath).

First, we went with a realtor and saw many homes for sale – nothing appealed to us. We made the decision to do the renovation/addition to our present home. We interviewed three contractors and went with the best – Carrier! You and your crew were professional, knowledgeable, friendly and easy to work with. The result of the final project – A+++ – we could not be happier!!

You gave us a totally rebuilt kitchen; the porch off the kitchen was removed, rebuilt and became the dining area and in the new 17′ X 17′ addition, you created magic: a washer/dryer closet, 1/2 bath, two storage closets and a “family room”! You were above and beyond our expectations!

It is a privilege to recommend Carrier to anyone who is looking for a contractor for major renovations and/or additions!

We used Carrier for a major renovation and addition to our home. We could not be happier with the results. The addition looks as if it was part of the original design. The Carrier family has been in the business for decades and it showed in their ability to think outside the box when making the most efficient use of space. And their personal touch and attention to detail gave us comfort along the way that the job was going to be done to our satisfaction.

Thank you Gino and Ryan!

Dear Carrier Family,

My wife, Sheila, and I are finally settled in our new home in Essex, Connecticut, a development built by your family. Surprisingly and not usually an expected enjoyable experience the entire process has been smooth and, dare I say, satisfying. Promises were kept and follow ups conducted in a timely manner. Carrier Construction, Inc. proved to be a quality contractor delivering an excellent product. As a 45 year veteran architect, I should be expected to know one or two things about construction and dealing with contractors. The Carrier family is a cohesive group with professional integrity as a rule of thumb. Ryan Carrier, representing the new generation of the family, is a stand-up guy who clearly continues the Carrier family’s tradition of doing the right thing.

Thank you for a job well done!

My wife Jenny and I recently moved into our new home built by the Carriers. From the initial meeting through the final walk through, the builder Gino Carrier and his son Ryan were always available and immediately responsive to all of our questions and concerns. Ryan works as the corporation’s Construction Manager. He ensured a timely and agreed-to closing. Our attorney could not believe that the “punch list” contained only several minor items as he was accustomed to closings with lists several pages long. This is a result of the diligence of the whole Carrier team.

Gino and Ryan made good suggestions and guided us to make the correct decisions regarding our desire for certain finishes, options and upgrades. Based on their extensive home building experience and sound advice, we markedly increased the value of our home for a very reasonable additional charge. We believe that we received excellent value for our money and are extremely satisfied with our decision to choose Carrier..

The standard build features, materials used and construction quality are vastly superior to other new construction that we viewed. The fit and finish are superb. A detailed, organized binder and file were provided to us explaining routine maintenance and containing appliance/system manuals with warranty information.

Carrier is the leader in energy efficient construction and we can already see how we will be saving on this expense for years to come.

After 30 years of owning and renting several homes, including new construction, we finally have a home without drafts.

Ryan continues to be available for questions and to resolve minor concerns. He actually stopped by this past Saturday to program and explain the functions of our state-of-the-art thermostats. We do not believe there are many builders who make themselves available to the homeowner after the closing.

Check out their 5-year warranty also. Avoid the stress and headaches associated with your homebuilding experience by just calling Carrier. You will not be disappointed.

Gino, Eric and Ryan Carrier,

We wanted to thank you again for taking our existing 2 car garage and creating a well equipped in-law apartment and new 3 car garage addition. We get many rave reviews when friends and family see what you orchestrated. Having seen the quality new homes your family builds, we trusted that your family would take the same pride with our project. My wife and I were trying to visualize this space reinvention with little success. Gino came up with an amazing plan that allowed each crew you brought to our site to do the best possible work. Ryan kept the process moving forward, organized and suggested changes that made sense. Eric and his excavation team created awesome complimenting hardscapes which actually steal the attention of our guests. The results say it all.

We are so glad that we visited and requested a consultation.

All the best,
Mike and Karen Wisz

Dear Rejean,

Heather and I would like to thank you. Our home is beautiful and we cannot say enough about the entire building process. I have to say that when we began the project I had my trepidations. My experience has always been that no one will look out for my interest quite like myself. For that reason, I came by the house almost every day to see the progress. Very quickly you, and your extremely dedicated and loyal crew, put my worries to rest. It was reassuring for me to see just how much time you spent on the job personally overseeing the build. I observed a business that from top to bottom saw quality as essential to longevity in home building. You, your family, and your team must be so proud of what you’ve created.

Thank You,
Blake & Heather Bevier

Dear Rejean:

I just wanted to thank you again for turning our sad-looking basement into a beautiful enhancement to our new home. Having seen the extraordinary homes you build, we are so grateful for your help on our little project.

Neither Rita and I had ever undertaken anything like this. Every craftsman you brought to us was a perfectionist. Robert kept the process moving steadily forward; everything was meticulously organized. And the results speak for themselves.

With deep appreciation and best regards to you and Gayle,
Alan & Rita Maislen

Dear Carrier Family,

The Staff of Carrier Enterprises has been very impressive with pleasant attitudes, demeanors, and knowledge. This was our first time building a house 1500 miles away, and the entire experience, from beginning with the down payment, to the finish, has been a pleasant one. We appreciated the periodic updates during the process. The weekly phone calls with Jay, and emails from Jay, Tina and Alexis, helped to keep our stress levels at an even keel. They were flexible and quick to respond to our questions and needs and made sure all details were covered before our move in date. Thank you for keeping us well-informed through the entire process. We know that even though you are consistently busy, you took the time to take care of us. They are knowledgeable in their field and really understand all aspects of new construction, which allowed us to put all our trust into them. The outcome was fabulous and we love our new home! Keep up the excellent work!

Thank you,
Ron and Pam Bottino

Thanks Carrier Family,

Hope all is well with everyone. Well, it’s been a few weeks since Donna and I have been in our beautiful home, and I speak for the both of us when I say that we couldn’t be happier. We love the house so much we hate leaving it every day to go to work! Donna and I feel that you guys have truly created a masterpiece and it is a privilege to be a part of it. Please know that you are all welcome in our home, so please stop by and visit whenever you’re at Autumn Estates. You have played a major role in helping Donna and I realize our dream. Thank you for all you have done and we look forward to a long lasting relationship as members of the Carrier Family.

We were just tired of maintaining our 2.16 acres and a big house. We have much better things to do with our time. What really attracted me was the space here, 76 acres of gorgeous land. I am a real estate professional, but I never had a sense of space like I did when I came here.

We had lived in our present home for 32 years, we needed to find a new place that was going to help us lead an easier lifestyle. At Castle Heights, we have found quality and integrity in a builder. Their product is sterling, and whenever we have an issue they address it.

We literally went to 25 or 30 different places. Castle Heights was flexible to customize, such as our 4 seasons porch. My house is very solidly built, my friends who are in construction have come over and complimented the house. We have a lot of room and we are at most 20 minutes away from everything. We have adapted quickly to our new home and don’t even think about our old house.

image descriptionIt’s setback, we have a big yard with plenty of room. The house makes life so easy, with conveniently located closets and baths. I don’t feel like I am losing heat, it’s certainly energy efficient. The lawns are taking care, I don’t worry about snow. This is truly easy living.

To Whom It May Concern:

It is with pleasure that we write this letter of testimonial on behalf of By Carrier, Unique Builders. We had the privilege of working with Sylvain, Noel, Annie and Cindy of Unique Builders when we chose to purchase a home in Samuel’s Crossing when General Electric transferred us to Connecticut in the fall of 2007. We looked at several builders in new home construction before making our decision to build at Samuel’s Crossing and in our opinion; none of the other builders we visited offered the excellent quality of workmanship and service of product as Unique Builders.

It is a fair statement to say that we were more than a little nervous about building a new home while moving from Louisville, Kentucky.

The building of our home could not have gone any smoother. The Carriers took care of every detail for us.

Everything we asked for was done and ready when we arrived from Kentucky. The quality and workmanship is excellent in our home. One of the aspects of our build that impresses us the most is the care and pride that Unique Builders took in the construction of our home. They did not build just another house; they built our home as though they would be living in it with their own family. There was no detail to small for them; from our high ceilings to our beautiful wood floors, everything reflects the highest quality workmanship.

Building with Unique Builders, a dedicated family company, was a wonderful and positive experience and continues to be; when small issues arise, they are fast to respond and resolve them. Unique Builders is a quality builder and a pleasure to work with and we are happy to recommend them most enthusiastically!  We are very happy to be part of the Samuel’s Crossing community and to own a beautifully and excellently built home by Unique Builders.

We thank you Unique Builders for our beautiful home and your continued service.

Best Regards,
Mr. and Mrs. David Hurd

Dear Annie:

Chuck and I want to thank you and your entire staff for building our home. Prior to this house we had two homes built and this one was by far the best experience! We enjoyed working with you. With your guidance and suggestions we have a home that is attractive, functional, practical and charming. we never felt pushed into doing more than what we wanted.

Our home is so beautiful and so comfortable to live in. I really love my kitchen!

From the moment we drove through Samuel’s Crossing and noticed the quality of the homes that were built we knew we had made the right decision to build here.

We are proud to tell people our home was built by Carrier. We look forward to many years enjoying our home,the surroundings and neighbors at Samuel’s Crossing.

To Whom It May Concern:

From the first visit to Castle Heights, we knew we wanted to live here. After meeting with George and Jake, we felt that these were people willing to meet our needs. What impressed us was the fact that each house was going to be different and unique, customized to each buyer’s specific desires.

Cynthia & Ron Naiman

Dear George,

I could not wait another minute to express our complete satisfaction with the outcome of our new home at Castle Heights. We enjoyed working with you and using your ideas in the building process. Having built our previous home before moving to Castle Heights I was very concerned about the excellence needed to satisfy my standards for my final home and you met every expectation with ease.

Ron and Janet Aliciene

JFC Endeavors:

We recently had a new deck added on to our new home at Castle Heights and I just wanted to take a moment to say what a wonderful experience it was. The workmanship was meticulous with attention to details making it seem as though the deck was always a part of our house.

Ross & Lucy DiMao

To Whom It May Concern:

It has been a pleasure to work with George Santos and the Carrier Builders this summer. Our home is comfortable, well built and beautifully designed both outside and inside. Mr. Carrier and his Associates have worked diligently and comfortably with us to help us enjoy our home and be assured that it is of the best quality.”

Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Conn


In my view, the new house is the best you’ve built with regards to both style and craftsmanship! Thanks for your continued help and please forward this to Jake and Francine. Kathy and I are truly grateful to be working with all of you.

Doug and Kathleen Rockwell

I found Carrier to be a builder who takes pride in their work, operates with the extremely highest standards of quality and is still concerned and helpful long after the sale. Their homes incorporate the latest advances in green/ energy efficient technologies…my heating bills are far lower than anticipated and my paint is even “green guard” certified. I am extremely happy with the neighborhood and community.

Lauren- Canton, CT

Our new home is everything we wanted and expected. We have had numerous compliments in the house, everyone who comes in comments on the various details (high ceilings, woodwork, beautiful windows, etc.). The workmanship is exceptional and it is obvious as you work with Carrier that everyone takes pride in their work.

Mike & Carol- Manchester, CT

I want to take the time to extend our appreciation to the wonderful job you did in the construction our dream home. We know our home would have never turned out so well without all your efforts.
