Char-Ron Contracting is a Monmouth County general contracting firm with over a decade of experience bringing projects like yours to completion. Char-Ron is a full service construction and property development company covering all phases of residential/commercial construction and property maintenance servicing the New Jersey Community for nearly a decade. We are passionate about our work, value, quality building and creating beautiful living and working environments from renovations to new constructions all the way to commercial fit outs. We are also proud to offer a range of residential and commercial rental opportunities. 
For us quality is never an accident, it is the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution and attention to detail; it represents the wise choice from many alternatives. We always go above and beyond to provide our clients accurate quotes, clear communication and an eye for practical, functional and aesthetically pleasing solutions.
Our passion to serve our community comes from our heritage. We are a group of fire fighters who have formed an All American owned and operated company born out of a desire to help those devastated by Sandy, ensuring that their friends and family could have reliable contractors to count on to rebuild their lives. This has extended to all customers big and small we consider family now.
Char-Ron has continued to grow, becoming one of the most highly ranked and trusted builders in the Monmouth County area and our portfolio includes new construction, investor builds, general renovations and home maintenance, house lifting, additions and rental property management. No matter what the project or the budget you will be delighted by our quality and attention to detail.


While our caring, collaborative approach is unmatched, the experience of working with us day-to-day is what truly sets us apart. We keep the lines of communication open from day one, work with distributors to get the best prices for materials, and only hire the most reputable certified professionals to work on your project. It’s not just your bathroom, it’s a bath-time play memory for you and the little ones. So, we offer child-proofing services to make sure you and your children are secure and protected in every room of your house. It’s not just your next investment property, it’s that other stream of income you’ve been planning for. So, we work with you to make sure your general contracting project is just what you need for your portfolio. It’s not just your kitchen we’re remodeling, it’s your family party gathering spot we’re creating. So, we’re going to help you make it the most stunning and welcoming place possible. We know it’s not just your home, it’s your safe haven and we’re passionate about making sure it’s exactly what you imagined. We also know your time is valuable. So, you won’t find yourself waiting days for that estimate when you can have it in minutes.


Hi, I’m Charlie LaRue, the proud owner of Char-Ron. I started my career as a Department of Defense fireman, where I learned how to be a leader, how to serve with compassion, and how to make sure the job was done right. After Super storm Sandy hit my town hard and I watched my friends and family struggle to find quality, honest and reliable contractors to literally rebuild their lives. I knew what had to be done. Family and community are at the root of every decision I make. Every supplier, client, and employee I consider family. Today, I am proud to call myself a husband, father, local business owner, volunteer fireman and a good egg. Always striving to bring that same attention to detail, duty to serve, and compassion for others to my work with Char-Ron Contracting. It is truly why we do things the way we do: We really care about your project, of course. But we care even more about you.

Charlie and his team did some construction at my house. They were punctual, professional, accommodating and did excellent work. I'm planning to book them again for future renovations. An added bonus is their office coordinator Maureen: whereas many contractors are busy on-site and hard to get hold of, Maureen ensures that communication is easy and requests are dealt with promptly. Recommended!

 I would highly recommend Char-Ron Construction for any new build or home improvement project.   First and foremost, Charlie spends the time to fully understand the customer, as a result the finished project is the customer's vision and within budget.    This quality is rare and you can see it in any of Char-Ron's finished projects. Most other contractors that I have hired push back on these types of details as they are not efficient or economical for their business.  Char- Ron does not, they  enthusiastically embrace the challenge and take pride in the build.

Char Ron has been very professional and is always there for me. Charlie has listened to all my ideas and my fears, and worked with me.  I’m very happy with all of their work, and everyone associated with them.
