I found Larry to be a reliable contractor and professional carpenter. He was easy to work with, was trustworthy and thorough. His even temperament made it possible for me to discuss new ideas and make suggestions. He didn’t ever seem stressed or in a flap, and he treated his workers and my family with respect. I would recommend him to a friend.

Hi, I’m Mike Reilly, Larry’s computer guy. I’ve known Larry for around 10 years now and in that time I have had him help me with some renovations, worked for him when he was short on labourers, assisted him on helping some of our friends with renos and been his go to guy for computer stuff.

There are some things you should know about Larry. First, he knows his stuff. Whatever you see in the photo gallery is just the tip of the iceberg. I don’t think I’ve ever had a construction related question for Larry that he hasn’t known the answer immediately for. He stays right up to date on any changes in building codes and has experience with every aspect of construction. His level of organisation means that work progresses quickly. Every job gets done right and all of his work is built to last.

To whom it may concern.

Larry Poirier is a totally trustworthy, reliable and friendly contractor.

We first met Larry when we had a new hardwood floor laid. He was recommended by the flooring supplier and he checked all materials before commencing the installation. He carefully matched board widths and grains. All joints and edges were cleanly cut. It was soon obvious that he is a perfectionist. Everything was cleaned up each day and at completion.

Subsequently, Larry was the preferred choice of 3 contractors when wanted to add an art studio extension to our house. He took total responsibility for the building of the extension other than for the electrical requirements. This involved excavation, footings, drainage, flooring, installation of a sink and cabinets and blending with the house roof. Each stage of the work was completed on time and met the approval of the building inspector at each stage. Larry made many suggestions to improve our original design, all of which we very much appreciated. He also assisted in the selection of doors and windows. Again, Larry cleaned up each day and the site was never untidy.

Larry was always willing to help and he and Jutta have become good friends. Give him an occasional cup of tea or coffee and he is as “Happy as Larry”!!

See you soon.

“We bought a house in Fanny Bay 18 months ago and were looking for someone to undertake some renovations for us. Larry’s name came up in a conversation with a good friend and it is the best recommendation we could have hoped for.

Larry listened to our ideas, suggested options, and once we had agreed on the scope of work, put the pieces together to make it happen. In the process, we came to appreciate his reputation for fairness and honesty, his professional skills, his great contacts with professional trades and his attention to detail. The final result is of a fine quality. We are looking forward to moving permanently into our renovated home in the very near future.

We are extremely pleased with the finished product and would recommend Larry to anyone who is considering any type of renovation; you will find him easy to deal with, agreeable and trustworthy.

I had Larry Poirier Custom Work put on a new metal roof on my house during the summer. It was done quickly despite major problems with wasp nests and through it all the guys kept their sense of humor and did a great job. What really impressed me was how tidy the work area was at all times. They were continually picking up whenever one of them was on the ground and at the end of day all tools, etc. were locked away and a final cleanup before they left for the day.

I’ve also had Larry install an exterior door, replumb part of my house, install a window and do a bit of finishing work. They are professional, show up when they say they will and do a beautiful job for a reasonable price. I have recommended them to many people and have had only great reports back on the jobs they have done.s.
