Bathroom tile replacement

If you need a great, good and honest hanydyman, Larry is the guy you need! He did our bathroom tile replacement and turned out great! He was on time on the start of the job and cleaned up everything upon leaving. He very easy to talk too and I highly recommend Larry for all your handyman needs. Thanks again Larry!

Buried Downspouts and Leveled Interlock Walkway

Larry was a pleasure to deal with. He and his 2-man crew extended/ buried 3 downspouts for us (dug trenches and pits, lined with gravel, laid drainpipe, filled back the earth/restored the areas). They also re-levelled an interlocking stone walkway, a job required due to our previous contractor’s poor workmanship. They showed up when he said they would, worked hard, finished on schedule and cleaned up after. The quote was reasonable and there were no surprises. Also, Larry sourced all the required materials, which was appreciated! As he was leaving, he grabbed a planer out of his truck and fixed our sticking gate. We’re glad we chose Should’a Got Us – thanks Larry!

Fence Repair

Fence repairs is one of those things contractors overprice because there is no money in it for the effort invested. Because of this the quotes received are inflated. That is until I met Larry through Homestars.

His quote was reasonable. He suggestions were insightful and on the mark and his service was professional. Larry kept me appraised of the progress as the project moved along. His team was great. All was delivered as promised and the team left the work area spotless.

I will definitely will use his services again and freely pass around his card to friends and family

Deck Renovation

Larry and Brad from ShouldaGotUs are life savers. I had my deck renovated a few weeks earlier but my choice of contractor was a bad one, and so was the job they performed. Boards were loose, posts were wobbly, and the entire deck needed a rework to make it safe and secure.

Not wanting to make the same mistake twice, I used Homestars to find a competent contractor. Enter Larry! He was the first to respond to my work request and, unlike the other two responders, he impressed me during both our telephone conversation and his onsite visit to assess the job.

Larry is a professional and a gentleman, and I'm very happy that I decided to go with him. Brad made up the two-man crew. He is a very industrious young man with boundless energy and a willingness to do anything.

They quickly tackled my botched deck, and completely removed everything back down to the joists so they could ensure the frame was solid and square. Cross supports were added to the joists where deemed necessary, and then the posts and boards were re-installed securely and professionally. Larry checked in with us regularly to ensure the product they were delivering was what we wanted, and he was always able to accommodate our wishes, including some unique solutions. The icing on the cake was when they finished by sanding the wood and applying a sealer that restored our deck to its former beauty.

Larry was very careful to manage costs during the project because he was sympathetic to my having paid for the previous contactors poor work. He was able to re-use most of the existing wood and provided receipts for any additional material he had to purchase.

I am grateful that I found Larry and highly recommend him.

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.
