About this pro
I read some of the bad reviews on Larry and still decided to take a chance on him thinking that maybe he somehow got a bad rap from multiple misunderstandings. Regardless of the reviews I went against my initial instinct to not contact him says multiple people have stated that he has walked away from work and have not completed multiple jobs. So I decided to give him a chance because he is a black guys (just like myself) and I thought maybe he was just getting prejudged. Oh buddy was I wrong!! Larry is and was just as awful as the very bad reviews that I had read before deciding to give him a chance. I even spoke to him before the job started let him know that I read some of the not so good reviews and I hoped that we could have a great experience since my jobs were pretty simple and straightforward. Larry came out to give a quote and the first thing that struck me as odd was that I asked him to park in the back parking space of my small gated community and he actually drove and parked on the wonderfully manicured lawn, where no one has ever or would ever park. I’ve lived here for 15+ years and no one has ever mistaken our manicured lawn as a parking space. I thought it was extremely weird since and asked him to park in the actual designated space. Larry came in and gave the “but definitely seemed a little off as if he was under the influence of something. He quoted me the job and we agreed that he would start the next morning. Larry was supposed show up at 10 AM but after 1130 I started calling him to find out where he was and he never answered his phone. I text him several times and he still did not answer. Almost 40 hours went by before Larry finally called me back and apologized and said he was late because another job ran over. At this point all the red flags were up but I decided to give him one more chance. I wanted Larry to start the job that he came out and quoted and he forgot to take the measurements so he had to come out another time to remeasure what he had already measured the first time. Larry then told me all the equipment and supplies that I needed to buy for him to do the job. I then went to Home Depot the next day to purchase everything Larry asked and he agreed to meet me the next morning. The very next morning Larry did another no-show, this time I called him several times and also text him asking what happened. Larry did not respond until the next day when he responded he was very confrontational. He kept changing the price of what he quoted me and stated that he only does things by writing up an invoice forgetting that he sent me multiple invoices with different prices. Asked him why was he a no-show the second time and he said he had to visit his girlfriend who lives very far. After that I could not trust Larry to complete the job, he had me buy a lot of items from Home Depot that I did not need, he lie about when he would show up and then continue to lie and make up excuses when he did not show up. His behavior was very erratic and very awkward, I don’t want to say this but it seems that he may be on some type of substance and I would not trust him in my house. If you want to be safe I would definitely stay away from this guy, I don’t care how cheap he quotes you. Be safe and Blessings!!Jul 5, 2018VerifiedLarry A.'s reply
Hello Jay. Really. You never agreed to the price. You kept trying to get me to do the job at a cheaper rate because in your words we are black and black should help black. I gave you a written proposal and explained to you no work starts till signed. I did come out and look at the job you wanted. Twice I came out and each time we never agreed. My faith is strong in God. Never in my life have I used any type of substance and never would I use any type of substance. I never parked on the lawn nor did I send you multiple invoices with different prices. I sent you a proposal to refinish the cabinets and one for the recessed lighting. I assumed you were an honest person and since we could not come to an agreement it was best that we each move on. I see that you did not. For whatever reason you wrote this review perhaps to discredit me in some way because I didn’t agree with you or whatever your reasoning is I don’t understand it. There are always two sides to every story and my faith is strong. No one change that. I hold no animosity toward you. I wish you the best in life and that you continue to grow as a person. God bless you always.
Larry was very professional and I like the quality of his work, the value was an extra bonus. He installed outside lighting fixtures on my 3 exterior door, front door kick plate and other miscellaneous things around the house. The only reason I'm giving him 4 stars instead of 5 is due to him being late due to traffic. He will be back to remove and install a new security door. I will definitely call him again!Mar 22, 2018Verified
