Wish I'd Found This Guy Years Ago

Larry is the real deal. Hired him and his crew to redesign and rebuild my old deck, which was poorly constructed and in terrible shape.

He did not disappoint.

From initial phone call through to post-job follow-up text messages, Larry was warm, sincere and extremely informative. As a sole proprietor, it's clear he takes a great deal of pride in his work. It's also obvious that he is personally invested in his projects.

He was up front and transparent about costs and proposed a number of ideas that allowed us to save money on materials. Before even laying down the first board, Larry started by overhauling the poorly built deck frame and foundation, making it square and level, reinforcing every single support beam. He made sure everything was super solid before proceeding.

His estimate for quantity of materials required was spot on. And his design ideas increased our deck space significantly while using the same underlying framing footprint. He even took on the challenge of rebuilding two new sets of stairs, perfectly level of course. My family and I have spent more time outside than inside since the deck was completed.

Throughout the entire process, Larry was quick to share his knowledge and expertise - something I really appreciated. Made me realize how much of a gem this guy is. They really don't make them like him anymore.

Larry does excellent work, offers tremendous value and is a genuinely nice human being. I will definitely call on him again to help improve our home.

Deck, pool stonework and trellis repairs and painting

Larry and his crew were terrific. They were highly professional, meticulous to detail and were amenable to assist us with other problems as they were uncovered. His quote was fair and he was transparent with the work undertaken and always looked to correct discovered problems within budget. Moreover, Larry and his crew were great to work with as they were affable, pleasant and enjoyable. Their clean-up at the end of each day was really appreciated. We have no hesitation in hiring Larry again, and in fact have recommended him to family and friends. We feel very fortunate to have connected with Should'agotus.

Deck

I can't say enough about Larry and his crew. They were fantastic from the beginning. Larry is super pleasant, knowledgeable and transparent with the whole process. They were able to beat a few other estimates and the quality of work was excellent. I've already recommended him to family and friends. Thank you Larry!

New Fence

Larry And Doug replaced 2 sides of our existing fence. They did a very good job with removal of old fence, cementing posts in, creating a very appealing design and making a strong, sturdy and massive gate from scratch.
They were very honest with their quotation and there were no hidden costs.
I highly recommend them for any fencing/decking job, 100%!

Fence repairs

We hired Shoulda Got Us to replace three wooden fence posts that had become wobbly and unstable. Larry and Doug dug up the old posts, which were encased in concrete, and then installed new posts in concrete casings. They also replaced the railings which had become worn with time. We were very impressed by their extreme attention to detail and their overall knowledge of the job. We would not hesitate to recommend Shoulda Got Us.

Leaking Pipe

They were able to come both on time and prepared and assured us the problem will be taken care of. They went above and beyond in making sure the problem was fixed and would not reoccur. The corner of the leakage looks good as new now ! Thanks again

Squirrel damage

I was having a very difficult time finding a company with a tall enough ladder to help me with a hole that a squirrel had been chewing into my attic. After speaking with Larry for quite a while he decided to locate a ladder and help me with my problem (even though he usually does not do this type of work). He arrived with Doug, assessed the situation and they got to work. Not only were they finished quickly but their work looked as if it was part of the original construction and it was done in the way that would stop the squirrel from having a second opportunity to cause any damage. When I asked what the cost would be Larry asked what I thought it was worth and then asked for far less than I expected to pay.
On top of that they were really great to talk to, from the very first conversation we had it felt like I was speaking to a friend I had known for years.
Fantastic work.
Fantastic service.
Fantastic guys.
Would recommend to anyone.

Range hood installation

I needed someone to install my kitchen range hood and found Larry. Larry and his partner Were very prompt in arriving to my house to access the type of installation I needed. They didn’t rush to get the work done to be paid- Larry took the time to see what was was involved to get this project completed and took the time to explain to my husband and I what was involved involved. The following weeks Larry returned and finished the installation in a timely manner and gave us an excellent price for the work completed. We were very impressed with Larry’s workmanship. I will definitely refer Larry to my friends and family.
