"As a property manager for a large condominium community in NJ, I have the good fortune to have found LA Design as our primary contractor for all projects within my community.
LA started out with small patch and repair work, and has now elevated to completing renovations to 3 of our buildings' courtyards, new roofs on 8 buildings, restorations to fire damaged units, repairing siding and just about anything you would need several contractors to perform. They have detected leaks behind walls with infrared devices that eliminated the need to rip walls apart. This has saved us tens of thousands of dollars. LA has and does it all. They do it with impeccable quality and the highest level of integrity.
LA Design starts by planning properly. They communicate their plans effectively and well in advance. They tackle field conditions and challenges without missing a beat. Their prices are reasonable and well worth the assurance that you'll not only receive quality work and products, but they'll back up their work with an outstanding warranty.
When you contract with LA Design, you're literally working with family! Larry Sr., Larry and Andrew, and the rest of the LA Design family have literally become a household name in my community. You would do well to make them a part of your family, and consider them for any project large or small."
"I highly recommend LA Design.
L A Design has been phenomenal in every way from Planning to Executing to Remedying.
It has been a great experience dealing with LA Design after dealing with other construction companies.
They’ve been doing great Re-construction/ Remedying work at The Grande due to a building fire that destroyed many units.
This is the best construction company around, The owner himself, Larry Sr. and son Andrew make themselves available every day. They don’t just send workers over, they come in themselves on a daily basis to the jobsite.
Larry Sr. and Andrew are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, easy to deal with, straightforward, trustworthy and very knowledgeable.
I also interacted with their office staff on the phone, they were very polite, courteous and provided great customer service.
LA Design can be trusted."
"You can't go wrong with LA Design! Overall, simply the best!"
"Highly recommend LA Design + Construction! They are skilled, professional craftsmen who go above and beyond to deliver a beautiful, finished project. Frank is true to his word and delivers as promised, on time and excellent workmanship. We will definitely hire them again!"
"La Design just finished a full office build out for me. This is the third project they have done and it turned out better than expected. The office build was done on time for our move with no issues. I will continue to use LA for other projects I have.
La Design just finished a full office build out for me. This is the third project they have done and it turned out better than expected. The office build was done on time for our move with no issues. I will continue to use LA for other projects I have.They have been the best contracting experience I ever had.
"My husband and I used LA Design to finish half our basement in 2020, and after completing other sundry renovations with other contractors over the years, I can unequivocally say that our experience with LA Design was, by far, the most superior.
The beginning of our experience found us speaking to Larry, and I appreciated that he provided a comprehensive plan after our initial conversation, including a diagram and a cost estimate breakdown. Having the visuals helped us figure out what worked best for finances and family needs, and what is more, the estimate was accurate and did not exceed the quoted price which has not been our experience with other projects and other contractors.
Throughout the process we appreciated how Larry would keep us updated on the progress and the projected timeline. The project was finished roughly on time, and we appreciated the professionalism of the workers, their attention to detail in their work, and how they cleaned up each day. Larry, our project manager, was easily accessible and often came to supervise the work and check in on the project.
Finally, the finished product was excellent. I love the details--there were three small ideas pitched (a barn door, cubbies for beneath the stairs, and an area that boxed out some sundry electric necessities) that lent a comfortable and friendly feel to our space. Going forward we anticipate calling LA Design again for any of our construction needs."
"From start to finish LA Design & Construction is a preeminent local business that is the consummate construction and design company."
"We had a big issue with our house that needed repair. I reached out to seven different contractors and received multiple quotes. Some were too high, others didn't address the problem, and just as important some had a poor personality. We signed with Larry Sr taking on our project, he and his team were very punctual, the workers were very professional and do great work. We are very happy with the way everything turned out and I would definitely do business with them again."
From start to finish everyone was very attentive and professional. Appreciate all the hard work throughout the whole project! Look forward to more projects.
I have been a client of LA for the past three years, and worked with them on two large and a few small projects. Their knowledge of construction, quality of work and customer focus are extraordinary. Here are some details:
Knowledge: LA is not your usual run-of-the-mill contractors. These are people with serious knowledge and deep expertise. The president of the organization constructed his first home as a teenager. They knew right stores, material and people for different aspects of construction, and worked with us to help us make right and timely decisions. They understand old homes as well as newer trends in construction, and can bridge the gap. Because of this, they were able to make an accurate early assessment for the gut renovation project of our 100 year old home. Building real-world things is not like constructing and destroying virtual worlds using legos or Roblox - it require hard skill, patience and precision. I have presented them with difficult problems during our renovations, and they found creative solutions for all of them.
Quality: There's a common belief that we can only get two of good / fast / cheap in a project. I think what we get from LA is outstanding / fast / commensurate. They may not be the cheapest, but we need cheap work for transient things - those that we use and throw away in a day or a week. We are talking about home where we spend our days and nights for years. Now onto some concrete examples: The floor in our kitchen which we fully remodeled had a slope and a height gap compared to the adjacent dining area. We were okay with it and wanted to compensate for this gap by placing the island over it. LA would have nothing of that. They ripped out the floor a second time, leveled it and redid it perfectly, all at their own expense, even after we said we were okay with it. A second example: we had a large outdoor patio floor which had subtle cracks, leaking rain water into the basement. LA did multipe water tests and identified the source of the leaks, totally ripped out the floor and redid it meticulously. The leaks that could not be fixed by our previous owners for many years were gone within two weeks.
Customer-centric: Construction projects are stressful to the owners and contractors. In the case of LA, they make it painless and here's how they do it: because of their knowledge of the field, they first of all make good estimation. Because of the quality of their work, very little went against plan. And to top it all, they truly connect with their customers. One example: we had signed off on the layout for the shower area in our remodeled bathroom. However, after tiles were laid out, we realized that it was too narrow to use. We raised it to LA and they worked their magic and expanded the already completed floor area & wall, and moved the saddle out without making it look like patchwork. Special mention: our best friend has been Lindsay who embodies LA's culture of expertise, meticulousness and customer-obsession. Lindsay wore her designer hat and suggested right fixtures, paints, tiles, etc. that will flow with the style of the home. The value these recommendations brought to the project cannot be overstated.
One final word - I had some thought-provoking conversations with the president of LA on his views on the company. He is a leader who takes care of his employees as much as he thinks about his customers. It's a pleasure to meet and work with such smart and forward-looking leaders.
We had a fire on Thanksgiving that destroyed our family home. Our insurance company left it up to us to take care of boarding up the house, which was an impossible task on a long holiday weekend. However, on Black Friday when everyone else was enjoying the holidays LA Design showed up. Within an hour they had the house boarded up and told us, "Don't worry about a thing, we will handle everything." Those words would turn out to be their mantra the entire process of the rebuild.
Their knowledge of the insurance process made it possible to secure every penny available to us by our insurance company without issue. Even when we ran into trouble with our bank issuing funds, they did not stop work like other companies would have for non-payment. LA Design kept working and knew exactly how to handle the situation. They just went above and beyond for everything.
The work that they do is outstanding. They are true craftsmen and employ some of the best workers around. The house they built for us is truly beautiful and we couldn't say enough about it.
During the construction we rented a house nearby, allowing us to stop in at any time to check on the progress and nearly every time Larry Jr. or Larry Sr. were on site. In the rare chance they were not there, if we called with questions they would make it a priority to stop by.
Larry Jr. and Larry Sr. didn't see this as constructing just a house for us, but building our home. They understood the pain we were going through and actually listened to everything we had to say. They were humble, caring and had a great sense of humor, making the entire process a lot easier than it could have been. You hear horror stories about contractors, and this was quite the opposite. We can't thank them enough

"Thank you LA Design and Construction for the fantastic job your hard working guys did on our new roof and siding. Our house looks beautiful!! From start to finish, our ROCK STAR Project Manager Kevin took care of every detail starting with a fair price, and was always available to answer any phone calls and questions. Kevin kept us informed each day and everything was well coordinated and went smoothly. Quality workmanship and great customer service. We had such a great experience we are planning our next project with LA Design and Construction!"
"So pleased with our experience and results from LA Design and Construction! LA reconfigured an entry door and a window on our house, refreshed two decks, resurfaced a third deck with TREX, did some interior work to repair a cracked ceiling, and repaired and painted our dining room ceiling and walls. We especially appreciated Larry Sr.’s professionalism and integrity, as well as his interest in ensuring the job was on schedule and of the highest quality. We also appreciated the work of Ryan for his expertise, his attention to detail and his personal and friendly demeanor. It was a pleasure to do business with LA, and we would wholeheartedly recommend this company for any home upgrades where you want the best results!"
"From the beginning of the planning process to the very last day of construction work, LA Design and Construction was wonderful to work with. Over the course of the project, my wife and I got to sit down with Larry Sr. to discuss what we wanted for our new addition and we felt we really built a relationship with him. Larry was always accessible when we had questions and was very accommodating to our needs. All of his employees were very courteous and always arrived on time. We also appreciated their Designer, Lindsay, who met with us to go over designs and products, and was very professional and helpful.
We highly recommend using LA Design, and would confidently use them again for a future project!
"I’ve worked with LA design and construction for several home improvement projects and have always found them to be extremely professional. We recently refreshed a bathroom and our project manager, Kevin, personally ensured that everything ran smoothly and that we were happy with the quality of their work. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again for our next project."
"LA Design Construction did a fabulous job on our addition. We added a mud room and a TV room. Larry and his crew are professional and efficient. The best part was that Larry handled all aspects of the job. He had a crew for everything we needed! I would highly recommend LA Design ! They did a beautiful job!"
"I would just like to say I have never experienced a business operation like la design. I mostly dealt with Andrew and Lindsay and they exceeded my expectations. I have renovated twice in Hoboken and it was a nightmare I swore I would never do it again, I was forced to because of a chimney fire this time and they made everything so simple it was ridiculous. Not knowing the business I really didn't know what to expect or look for but they were here every step of the way with a cool demeanor advice and kept me centered. Andrew has been here at the drop of a hat when I call him never a problem. I have to say I genuinely love them."
"I can’t thank Larry enough for helping my wife and I renovate our new home. This was not an easy project by any means with many hurdles (including a Pandemic) and Larry has made this such an easy process.
The work that Larry and his crew have done Is amazing but more importantly, anytime we had a question or concern, Larry would be always be ready to discuss and make sure we were taken care of.
I would recommend LA Design to anyone who wants to freshen up their home or business and just know, you are getting someone who is reliable, fair, and will make sure you get what you want.
Thank you again"
"I wish I had found them sooner! This is the contractor I've been looking for. They did an excellent job repairing what another contractor had made a mess of. Larry is great - responsive and knowledgeable - through the estimate and scheduling process and the work looks terrific."
"I’ll start off with Larry Sr: Freaking Awesome!!! Honest, kind and caring!! Larry treats your home like it’s his own. From start to finish I’m thoroughly grateful for hiring LA Construction. The reviews I read helped but ultimately it was Larry Sr who helped make our decision on whom to hire that much easier. Larry checks in daily on his employees. He kept us up to date each day with what’s currently happening and what will occur tomorrow.
Each employee is fantastic at what they do. Each guy has a specialty. From tile work, Sheetrock, exterior stone, framing, painting and more, an all around AMAZING job by everyone.
Of course, with Larry’s leadership, everything went smoothly. IF we had any items to discuss or wanted it changed, Larry took care of it. He went above and beyond what the agreement stated. If an item wasn’t done to HIS specs, he would have whatever it was redone. Again, Larry treated our home like it was his own. The best part of this entire project is that we now have a friend. Not only does Larry have amazing customer service skills, everyone on the team was amazing. Courteous and professional!!
If anyone needs to hire a fantastic contractor, don’t look elsewhere. They were the midrange price on the bids we received and not our lowest bidder. We don’t hire cheap, we hire the best. Just hire LA Construction and Design. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!"
"Visited their show room a few weeks ago and was impressed. They have everything you need in-house for your renovation. Very professional and knowledgeable."
"Professional from start to finish! We did kitchen addition, new siding, new deck, new bath plus remodel of our entire interior. Larry was with us every step of the way from concept to completion. One stop shop. Great crews, all promises kept and we totally love, love, love our new home!! Can’t say enough good things about these guys!!"
"Our family used LA Design to remodel our kitchen. From the minute Larry Steimel Jr. stepped into the house, we could not have felt more comfortable in who we chose to make our dream become a reality. Their employees, professionalism and cleanliness were superb. They all went the extra mile to ensure we were completely satisfied. We look forward to having them back for our next home project and would highly recommend LA Design for any residential or commercial construction needs."
"Five star service ! I have worked with LA design and Larry Sr. on two different house renovations. First our kitchen and then recently our master bathroom. Their prices are very competitive and most important is the level of trust they provide. When any opticals occur, as they do in house projects, they work to solve immediately. They are my go-to contractors for their quality of work and I can’t recommend enough!"

"From the first time Larry Sr. met with us, we felt completely comfortable hiring LA design to put up new siding, roof, and stone.
Larry took the time to listen to our wishlist and assured us that his crew was experienced and can do what I wanted.
I do pay a lot of attention to detail and I wanted my house to get a complete new look. When he said he would take care of everything he meant it!
Whenever I had a question or concern, Larry was here to discuss it with me and that made a big difference.
I am totally happy with his work and crew. I recommend them highly and would use them again on my next project."
"I have been using Larry and his family for the last 3 years now on multiple home renovations and updates. They are amazing to work with and we always love the end product.
I recommend them 100%. They always do a great job and everyone who comes to our place is always impressed by the updates and changes we make. They really collaborate with you and give you great ideas on how to improve and update your home."
"Very good company!"
"We used LA designs to remodel our Kitchen, fireplace and refinish our hardwood floors. I can not say enough good things about the work they did, their employees and professionalism everyone that worked on my house displayed.
They were great at communicating with us throughout the process as well as providing a timeline for each step. I would definitely use them again, and if you are looking to get work done I would certainly give them a call. We are thrilled with our new kitchen, fireplace and floors."
"LA Design & Construction replaced our Roof this past December. Looks like a new home. Great work at a great price. Clean up was great as well. Thanks. Will use again."
"We recently used LA Design for our addition/renovation project (add-a-level, dining room addition, renovation of existing space, roof and siding replacement) and could not be happier with the entire experience. From our first consultation with Larry Sr. to working with Julia on our kitchen layout to interfacing with Larry Sr., Larry Jr. and Andrew on all aspects of the project while it was underway, the entire team made us feel comfortable and confident the entire way.
LA stuck to our original agreed-upon budget and schedule (even after learning shortly before breaking ground that a portion of the job required an unexpected variance). There was always a full crew on site (literally not a single day went by where significant progress wasn’t made) and Larry Sr. was ALWAYS available by phone to discuss any questions or address any emergency situations regardless of time or day. We were especially appreciative of Larry and company always willing to go the extra mile to ensure we were completely satisfied with the job, always making us feel that our satisfaction was their biggest concern.
We can’t say enough about how happy we are with the finished product and the entire experience along the way. We’d highly recommend using LA Design for any home project you might have…"
"Larry and Julia built an amazing built-in in our bedroom and we would couldn't be happier with the design and outcome! They were responsive, punctual and easy to work with. I would recommend them highly to anyone!"
"We recently had LA Design and Construction put new roofing and siding on our house. We had other similar quotes, but none with the attention to detail and attentiveness that was shown to us by Larry and the LA team. Inclement weather delayed the project a few days here and there, but we received daily updates on the status of our project and updated timeline.
Larry stopped by the house every day to make sure things were moving along appropriately. They even installed a new front door for us at no additional cost, which was not the case for all of our other quotes, and gifted us shutters of our choosing as a thank you for our business. Overall, the craftsmanship displayed by the entire team (roofing, siding, gutters) was exceptional and I'm already recommending them to friends and family."
"I really can't say enough good things about my experience with Larry Sr. and team. We were facing a major overhaul after a pipe burst right after the new year. This compounded with some previous damage from a pair of roof leaks and a burst water heater. Long story short: water is not our friend. Add to that the fact that my wife was in her third trimester and it was a recipe for disaster.
Larry Sr. arrived on the scene and immediately instilled a sense of calm. We had met with a handful of contractors that were either very cavalier about the scope of work or very alarmist. Larry Sr. took charge and immediately and thoroughly started compiling an estimate on the spot. He also noted that they have worked directly with our insurance company and that he would negotiate directly, something the other contractors never even brought up. Over the course of the next several weeks -- in which time were moved out of our home and praying that the baby did not come before we made it back -- the team worked at a furious pace and still managed to keep everything under control. We received a daily update with photos of progress, and were given suggestions but never felt pressured as it related to everything from paint color to floor stains. Our place looks brand new and, more importantly, is more structurally sound.
I would whole-heartedly recommend the LA Design team to anyone that will listen, especially if you are looking to remove yourself from the headache of volleying back and forth with insurance adjusters."
"LA Design and Construction has been my go to company for our 120 unit Condo Complex's needs for a couple of years now. They can handle it all from a re-design, a new kitchen or bathroom, building waterproofing issues and insurance claims.
They are on the job until it is done to your satisfaction. Hard-working and trustworthy!"
"Larry and his team are TOP notch quality. A tree fell on our home, and we went with LA for the repairs for various reasons. One, their pricing is completely transparent and fair. Two, they were creative with the repairs that were done and actually significantly improved not only the look but the value of our home. The end result of their job was that our home is beautiful! They worked very well with our insurance company to make sure that everything was done fairly and that we received the best reimbursement for the damage that was done by the tree that fell on our property which was owned by the town.
LA knows what they're doing. There a top professionals in the field and I will be using them for all of my home projects from now on and in the future. I highly recommend them."
"We used LA designs to fix the ceiling due to a water leak from the above unit. Larry literally showed up a few minutes after my call, explained the areas that would need to be addressed and gave me an estimate that I was happy with. The workers showed up on time on the scheduled date and were really courteous. They covered all our furnitures, did the necessary repairs, painted and then took all the debris.
The ceiling looks great and it was a really pleasant experience! I will definitely use them again."
"Company is great in every respect of the word. Larry and crew are punctual, professional and CLEAN UP after themselves...nice. We've used the crew for adding a room and a custom built-in."
"I cannot say enough good things about LA Construction. Larry Jr., Larry Sr. and Julia treat you just like family. When we had a deadline they worked like an army to complete it. They have an outstanding eye for detail. If we needed something changed or touches the something up- not a problem! If we had an emergency- no problem.
On top of that, the pricing blew their competition out of the water. Most memorable are small things-things they didn't have to do, but they did anyway that we appreciate the most. Call them. You won't be sorry!"
"LA Design and Construction did custom built-ins for us. From start to finish the process was extremely easy and transparent, and the end product was exactly what we wanted. They provide high quality at prices that help create value, as the owner Larry knows that his clients are looking for ROI from his projects as well as the product itself.
The team at LADC exhibits extreme professionalism -- our project took a full week to complete and each night we came home from work, our apartment was left very clean, so that we did not feel as though we were living in a construction zone.
We would definitely recommend LA Design and Construction to others and look forward to our next project with them."
"We used LA Design to build us a walk-in closet in our master bedroom. Not only did it come out fantastic but working with them could not have been a more positive experience. Everything that they told us they followed through on. My husband called them several times throughout the project day and evening and they always were either available or called us back right away. They were professional showing up on time every day and the work they did was really outstanding. The closet came out great and it looks as though it was always a part of the room.
If you are looking for a construction company you can rely on that does great work call LA Design you will not be disappointed. We can't wait to use them again for more projects."
