My beautiful shed by Largo@

Do not believe everything you read. Here is a photo of my beautiful finished shed built by Murray Baker. He is a very busy one man business and he gave me very good service. Very clean and personable.

stay away... and do reserach before putting down deposits

Found their ads on Kijiji, the absolute worst among worst contractor I ever had to deal with.
This owner also post ads and run business under "River Valley Construction" and "Backyard Specialties"

Took the deposit and then cut contact; do not return phone or show up for the jobs.

I urge all the posters to get together, we can file as joint claim for this fraudulent business.

And a lesson learned: always research before give the contractors any money.

Murray B****/Largo Sheds/River Valley Construction

There are good contractors and bad contractors. Then there are serial predators. We hired Contractor Murray B**** to construct a 24 x24 garage with a loft--a 3-4 week project-- on September 21, 2017. As of today, the project remains incomplete. The purpose of this post is to warn others and to gather information. We are working with the CBO of Tay Valley. Over the course of the past 10 months, I have evidence of the following:

1) Crimes against the provincial building code (specifically, Building without a permit
2) Identity Fraud (specifically, use of a false name for the purposes of obtaining supplies without payment)
3) HST Evasion (Two different Tax ID numbers on separate contracts written in 2017--neither is associated with CRA). A third number provided in May of this year is valid.

Many of you have contracted for the construction of smaller sheds and therefore municipal authorities are not involved. As indicated by another reviewer, Murray also advertises and operates under the name of River Valley Construction. I'd like to take your stories to our MPP in an effort to stop this man from defrauding others. You may contact me for my email address at 613 200-2794. I prefer signed statements but will take any submissions to the MPP. Thank you.

Garage

Fraud company. Stay away . I lost my money and they do nothing. Be careful with this agency. They have no licence as a contractor. They promised a lot but do nothing.

Largo Sheds

Unskilled labourers, low quality workmanship, improper installation techniques, used what looked like old leftover materials. Guy seems to just not give a @#&$. Don't hire this chump. There is a reason he is less expensive. Do yourself a favour and pay more for a quality shed.

Avoid Largo Sheds

ZERO Communication, Excuses, Excuses, and more Excuses to why progress isn't being made. Avoid using this company as you will be left extremely disappointed. Craftsmanship is mediocre at best and you will be left wondering if they will ever return to finish your project.

shed construction 6 months and still not finished

Contracted a simple shed to be built. "Murray" promised to visit every week and never showed. Project started in September and still not finished in January. Could have been done in 4 days. Quality is shoddy. Will need to hire another company to repair and finish. Promises were not kept. Avoid this company.

Stay away from Largo Sheds

http://www.largosheds.com. Initial interaction with Largo Sheds was pleasant. Paula, who handles initial engagement was easy to work with. That's where all pleasantries ended. Once Largo obtains their deposit, communication with them is next to impossible. They do NOT answer their phone, and they do not reply to email. I was given absolute assurance that the shed would be completed by a specific date, as it was a pre-requisite to the start of my landscaping project. Shed construction did not start until 7 weeks after the promised date. I understand things can come up, which would cause a delay. The utter lack of communication was not acceptable and impacted my landscaping schedule considerably. Weeks went by when I didn't hear from Largo or the owner whose name is Will. Construction finally took place. During the day of construction the yard was an absolute mess. Will assured me, that because I have little kids his crew would leave the place safe and clean. Upon his departure, there were nails all over the lawn which my kids still find scattered to this day. At the end of the construction day, Will left the shed with unfinished items that he promised to come back and address over the coming weekend (Secure the siding which was not attached to the shed, and address my concerns with the roof shingles not being secure). Will did not show up, and did not contact me for 3 months. Will didn't answer one phone call from me, returned one voicemail, or returned one email. As months went by the unfinished shed has shown many signs of poor quality that I require to be addressed by the '2-year no hassle warranty' that is boasted on their website. Unfortunately, in good faith I paid Will in full after the first day of construction. To-date I have still not received a receipt of payment. Do yourself a favour and steer clear of Largo Sheds. Should you choose to hire Largo Sheds, here are items you will likely encounter.

- Inward swinging door was installed upside down and inside out, as opposed to using a correct outward swinging door. Leaks, and hardware which is intended to be used indoors is rusted. Because of the incorrect door being used, hinge pins are on the exterior of the shed which means the shed can be easily broken into by simply removing pins. Lock is useless.
- Siding continually falls off on all sides of the shed because it's not been secured
- Roof shingles slapped on with no regard or care for alignment
- Roofing nails exposed and not sealed
- Door Jam and Door material is not sufficiently prepared for outdoor use. Door jam and door are wet and expanding/discoloured
- Shed leaks from the door jam and door insufficiencies. Floor (OSB Board) is wet, and expanding. Shed floor soaks every time it rains and will need to be replaced
- On the day of construction Will surprisingly told me he does not add soffits to his sheds. Full exposure to pests and a very unpolished look is the result.
- Lattice not added to all sides of the shed base, exposing to pests. A family of rabbits has moved in under our shed already
- Siding is noticeably not level, off by over an 1.5 inches from left to right
- Loose wall panels
- On day of construction, rushed work to ensure 1 day completion likely resulting in many of the poor quality items listed

UPDATE: Will contacted me on September 14th, after informing him of my intention to publish my review. He promised to address all matter by the end of September. He noted he had a family emergency which I was sympathetic to, and agreed to his terms. It is now November 15th and I've not heard from him since (2 months). He does not answer emails or phone and clearly has no regard for his customers.

UPDATE 2: Got hold of Will on May 19th, 2016. He promised to call me the week of May 23rd to firm up a date to address. It's now July 4th and I've heard nothing.

Supply and Install of Garden Shed

Long story short...worse contractor I have ever hired. The company name is Largo Sheds and the contractor name is Will. I believe he is the owner. I attempted to contact this contractor countless times for him to address the problems I have with the shed. The contractor (Will) would agreed to come by and fix it, but weeks turn to months and I am still stuck with the problems.

He usually advertised his ads for custom built sheds through Ottawa Kijiji. There is no review of this company anywhere so I have to create one on this site. I am writing this review to warn other home owner to not fallen victim to this company. Stay away for Largo Sheds. http://www.largosheds.com/
