Excellent quality of service

The prior occupant of my house attempted to, (with evidently little skill) turn a small back porch into a fair-sized, fully enclosed room with Windows. The result is a cheap looking extension with a leaking roof, and with windows that collapsed with the wind (letting in rain, snow, and leaves) --a totally unusable space that was a complete eyesore. I could never lets guests even see my backyard out of embarrassment. Enter Larry the Done Rite Handyman (and certified construction specialist)! He saw that, underneath the botched project, was the potential for a great looking rosewood deck. Magically, this man (and his kind and diligent assistant) converted the eyesore into asset --one that I am now proud to show off to any guests that happen to stop by. And his bid to do the work was much less expensive than my prior bidder (who only offered much less satisfying patch-up job). BRAVO!

Review by in Waterford, MI
We love our new bathroom! We hired Larry to replace our fiberglass shower and floor with custom tiling. Larry and his crew were extremely professional and reliable. Before the process, we discussed our concerns regarding our 21 year old cat and he was very understanding and accommodating. He also fixed drywall on our bedroom ceiling and you can't even tell any work was done. We will definitely be using Larry and Done Rite Handyman and Remolding Services again soon.

Review by in Redford, MI
Larry Barr is an extremely professional and trustworthy contractor. My daughter and I hired Done Rite to finish basement ceiling tiles and we received expert advice and service. We also had 3 rooms painted and are more than pleased. I could not ask for a more considerate and courteous work crew. Larry had no problem taking care of all of the other small jobs we added on. Superior Job Well Done!

Project: Repair Drywall
Larry was on time, within budget and the work was excellent. Unlike many home repair companies, Larry was willing and happy to take on smaller 1 day jobs. I would definitely recommend him for your smaller home repairs. I had him do multiple jobs, including putting up a trellis in my garden.

Project: Repair Drywall
Larry Barr's work was "above and beyond" on this project - Drywall install (ceiling), and wall repairs. His work was excellent, it was done in a reasonable amount of time and his post-work clean-up was thorough. We would (will!) hire Larry again; and we highly recommend his services.

Review by in Ferndale, MI
This is my second review of DoneRite. Larry and his team completed a number of projects at my house including exterior trim repair, power washing, painting and caulking, deck power washing and restaining, and a complete kitchen remodel. All the work was completed to very high standards. The worksite was kept clean and work completed timely. Larry was also very conscious of work scope and keeping me informed of progress, issues, and additional work/repair. I have hired Larry to do multiple projects at my house and will continue consider/hire him for future projects.

Project: Paint Cabinets
I hired Done Rite for the cabinet paint job in my kitchen, they did a great job and i was extremely satisfied with the outcome. They took their time and didn't rush with the project. The clean up job after the completion was top notch also. Would definitely hire them in the future.

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
