Backyard Fence

Should'a Got Us were on time, professional, friendly and on budget. Larry and his team removed the old fence and installed a new one. I will be pleased to call them for future projects. I rate them 10/10 and am happy to recommend them.

Handyman

I am extremely happy that I found the perfect professional who was the most honest, reasonable, gem of a handyman that I have ever known with his company Should'a Got Us. I called him to do a renovation of my bathroom and kitchen and he analyzed what I requested and came up with some ideas that I had not thought of, in a straightforward manner. He did a phenomenal job in a short period, was punctual, neat, and always willing to answer any and all questions. I am glad I found him and will always use his skill in future projects and would recommend him highly as a 10/10.

On time, on price, great job. 10 out of 10!

About a year ago, I purchased new kitchen appliances, which, of course, did not fit the existing spaces. A friend had used Should'aGotUs to replace some windows and trim, and highly recommended their work. I called Larry, and although it was not a big job, he came personally and on time. He quickly assessed what needed to be done, modified the spaces, replaced the trim, and did everything but the electrical work which he correctly said, had to be done by an electrician. He was meticulous, charged exactly what we had agreed, and left my kitchen spotless. It was a great job.

So this spring, when I needed the foundation on a summerhouse repaired, I called Should'aGotUs. I was delighted to learn that Larry could organize everything that needed to be done. Larry arrived on time on an agreed date with his excavation/foundation specialist to see exactly what was needed and provide a quote. Larry and his team came back twice, always on time, to do the excavation, pour the concrete and then make sure the building was secure on its new foundation. Because I was a bit nervous, Larry explained every step of the process and demonstrated the high tech equipment he was going to use -- including a laser transit and laser levels -- to make sure the job was done right. And it was done right. He and his team were friendly, willing to answer questions, hard working and meticulous. The final bill was exactly what was agreed. When they left, they left the job site clean.

Speaking from decades of experience with different contractors who sometimes did what they said they were going to do, but other times failed to turn up, did a shoddy job, or charged more than originally estimated, it doesn't get much better than this. I have no hesitation giving Should'aGotUs a 10 out of 10.

Phenomenal service and craftsmanship

We were searching for a company with reasonable prices for a few repairs in our shower stall - broken wall tiles that caused a leak to the drywall, aged caulking, water damage to drywall at the lip of the stall entrance. If you're looking for a reputable company with excellent craftmanship and then some, you'd be doing yourself a dis-service by not checking out Larry Rudd and his company - Should'a Got Us. From our first conversation with Larry, we could immediately tell that he has many years of skill and expertise in his craft - couple that with his very down to earth personality and you're in for a treat! Now on top of that, the price for this work was MORE than reasonable considering the level of detail and quality of work Larry put into this project - this compared to other quotes we received that were more than double the price and were more band-aid type fixes if anything. Larry puts a lot of heart and dedication into his work and we're very pleased that we were able to find this gem of a company to work with - an absolute pleasure and already have plans to work on another project (or 2) with this company!

Basement Renovation

After a long search to get my basement renovated I called Should have got us. So glad I did. Larry listens to what you want done. He explains everything he is doing , comes up with ideas for problem areas that work. Keeps you informed at every step and wants to make sure you are happy with the work he has done. Couldn't be happier with the renovation Larry did. I now have the basement I have wanted for so long. At a very reasonable price..

Larry is a rock star!

Larry fixed about 20 things in my place. He is fair with pricing and does a great job. I cannot recommend him enough. He is great with communication as well. He stayed in touch in the weeks leading up to the work and messaged after to check in.

installation of range hood

We were lucky to have Larry and his assistant come to our rescue when my husband couldn't complete the final stage of the installation of the range hood. Larry and his assistant were professional, friendly and extremely kind to complete the task at hand. We highly recommend 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!
