Larry is an excellent contractor. He has an ironclad work ethic and takes pride in doing things correctly. For weeks he was always there bright and with a plan and always on-site with his crew to keeps things moving forward efficiently. This crew did more in the first two days than our last contractor did in two months, and they were a joy to work with from start to finish. Larry is a pro who is able to glance at a room and provide you with a flood of info on how to improve the space and look out for issues. For instance, while installing durock and drywall in our bathroom, he was able to see behind the sink opening of the drywall that the stair landing was in need of support. He showed me the bowing and splintering wood, and after getting the go-ahead, fixed it right away. He came across dozens of things that he knew we’d want to address. Our project involved fascia, eaves, gutters, stucco, paint, drywall, carved banisters, built custom shelving, windows, leveling, and more. Let’s just say it was a large project full of many jobs. And I waited until the end of our large project to review so that he wouldn’t be hired away from us!Aug 1, 2017VerifiedLarry's Preservation, Remodeling and Extermination's reply

Bed Bug Extermination
Larry is professional, pleasant and prompt. He was running my a few minutes behind the first visit but called to let me know prior to our scheduled time. I do home healthcare visits, and I understand life happens. He handled it very professionally. He responds in a timely manner, answers questions, and gives clear information and education. Being a single female, I feel Larry has my best interests at heart and isn't just out to make $. We've had two visits, and things seem to be under control for the moment. I'm indebted to him for his help, and making me feel less anxious. I highly recommend him for any more f his various services.Mar 17, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do itemized bids, you know each task and its price
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Understanding just what the customer is asking/wanting me to do. Most of my estimates are labor only I give a customer itemized labor bids whereas they can pick out the product that they want installed and purchase it, which helps them to be involved in the job they want completed
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?A lot of Hands-On training that can only be accomplished from the many years that I have been working, I am licensed for mold removal, pest control and have a contractors license.
