Matching on Angi
I have used Larry twice back in 2016 and 2017 and gave him excellent reviews because he does excellent work. I emailed him a couple months ago about replacing my bathroom vanity. One of the very first things he said when he called was "oh, you thought I was expensive". On my first review of him I gave a "C" on price, C = average as far as I know and I thought that was fair since he was more expensive than some I researched (and very few qualified handymen have A prices to me - maybe because I'm not wealthy.) But after that research I CHOSE HIM because of his reviews and qualifications. When I paid him, I NEVER squawked about the price or rolled my eyes - he did a great job installing a new security front door. Then a few months later I chose him AGAIN to install two more security doors and make a pass through door from my carport shed out to the back yard. He made a comment beforehand suggesting maybe I wanted to get some more quotes since I gave him a "C" on price. My reply was that I was very happy with his work and I felt I got what I paid for and was good with that. So when I contact him for THIRD job and the very first thing is a comment on how I think he's expensive, I was a little put off. But I texted him some pictures of the vanity as HE asked and he never responded (I thought maybe he didn't know who sent them but we had just talked about it the day before). I was going to reach out again to him but decided not to. I explained and stood by my original review (which again, was overall an A), not once but twice; I will not defend it again, and if he can't get over that from 2016 after my using him twice then I'd have to give him a "D" on professionalism. I DO recommend his work but beware if you give him anything less than A's all around.
