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.
