Dear Grant,

Peter and I wanted to thank you and your wonderful crew of people for the work you did to restore our house to good health and appearance again. Though it turned out to be much more than we anticipated, the fact that you were able to find the problems and solve them in such a good manner, gave us relief in knowing the house is in excellent shape now.
The crewmen were all so professional and pleasant to be around that we actually looked forward to seeing them arrive each day, knowing they would continue making good things happen. Don was always on hand to help us with questions and decisions, which we appreciated very much. Holley kept us up with the important things we needed to know through her e-mails to us, and for that we are thankful too.
You and your company deserve a lot of recognition for the way you serve your customers with graciousness and real professionalism, and it was our pleasure to have you help us!

With Many Thanks,
Molly and Peter Gray

Dear Grant—- this is just a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate your hard work, creative spirit, attention to detail, and management and leadership capability in bringing the Ridgeley Hall job to a conclusion. You have exceeded my expectations in every way and we have a residence which is truly world class, indestructible as intended by the original owner, and a joy to own and in which to live! It gives me such great pleasure to know that the house has retained its historic feel and features yet has every benefit of thoughtful and modern comforts such as AC, functioning gutters and the extensive redo of the roof, fireplaces, electrical and plumbing. The creative approach on woodwork, plaster and facade, creates a tangible texture which is truly special and “warm”. Jane and I look forward to many years of joy in our “new” house!

Working with Grant Larlee and his employees has been a delight – His professional standard and eye for detail is exceptional. He stands behind all his work whether performed by him or by those recommended by him. He is always there for you and his supervision is second to none. He can always be reached for any item that might come up and is very prompt on any follow-up required.

I cannot recommend him highly enough – Feel free to call me for more accolades if you would like to hear them. Just look at my historic cottage (late 1800’s) in Aiken as it is an example of his great work.

In 2002, I commenced renovations on a residence located at 541 Grace Avenue SE, Aiken, South Carolina which included replacing some existing windows. Window World in Augusta, Georgia supplied Lincoln brand wood replacements. Some years later, the sashes began to rot and the supplier was contacted to investigate the problem. I was informed that no warranty existed. I then attempted to repair the damage but was unsuccessful at which time I was able to determine that the windows were actually covered by warranty and Grant Larlee volunteered to look into the matter. He contacted Window World who after a number of months was unable to obtain a response from Lincoln. Grant contacted the Lincoln Company directly and was able to obtain full replacement of the windows in question at no cost to me except for the cost of installation even though he had no responsiblity for the original work.

Larlee Construction has consistently demonstrated not only superior workmanship but the highest level of customer service. Larlee Construction sets the standard for construction and renovation in this area.

Dear Grant,

We want to take this opportunity to thank you and the team at Larlee Construction for your outstanding work on our home addition in Woodside Plantation. From planning to construction, your thoughtful attention to detail and quality exceeded our expectations. We appreciate the fact that Larlee completed the project on schedule while also taking great care to respect our existing home and lifestyle throughout the process. The finished product reflects Larlee’s high standards and completes my vision for creating a true dream home. We look forward to enjoying the craftsmanship and quality of your work for many years. Again, thank you for all that you did to make our dreams a reality.

Best regards, Elsie and Ted Wilson

Dear Grant,
Yesterday one of our kindergarten students asked me who brought us the beautiful rocks. While you may not have considered them beautiful when you proposed the idea, we at Mead Hall think they are wonderful. They have made an immediate difference in the appearance of that pathway, and have resulted in less dirt being tracked into the buildings. Your solution is ideal, and we are grateful.

Thank you for supporting our school with this generous donation. Mead Hall is truly blessed by your kindness.

Katherine B. Gordon, Head of School, Mead Hall
