Larry and his team did a great job at my house replacing skylights and putting on a new shingles on the roof, I hired them back to roof the apartment. They really are thorough and do a neat clean up. You wouldn't know they were there. I am thrilled with the job and will have them back again in the spring for another job.

We used this business to reshingle my mother's roof. The turnaround time, price and communication was fantastic and the quality is top notch. Definitely plan on doing business with this company in the future.

Ryan Sprusansky

Very happy withCHS. They were on time and finished my barn roof in less than a day. They also did a great job cleaning up.


We hired CHS in early November 2021 to re-side our entire house. It wasn't cheap but the professional quality and pace they kept was exceptional. From start to finish it took nine days starting day #1 with 15-20 workers stripping the old wooden siding. Each day thereafter they showed up in dark and finished in dark. The crew, led by John who acted as a Contruction Manager, were professional and never stopped. We are very happy with the new look of our home and would recommend Larry and his crew at CHS to anyone looking for a quality contractor.

Larry and his team were great! they gave us a new roof, beautifully finished in 2 days! And unlike some of the roofers i interviewed, they were willing to do all parts of the job, like replacing some clapboards and fascia boards. The job looks great!


We recently contracted with Community Home Services, LLC. to re-side our home in Wells, Maine. We are thrilled with the results and how beautiful our home looks. With a large crew directed by John, the team workers from start to finish were efficient and hard working. Always considerate and polite they were non-stop and had our 1500 square foot home completed in two days! Old siding removed, new siding on, our all around yard never looked like a working crew had even stepped foot on it!
I would highly recommend Larry Ryea, Community Services, LLC.!
From a quick response to giving us an estimate, the wait time of completion to the final beautiful home! We couldn't be happier!

Mr Ryea and his crew was amazing to work with
I had major leaks and a ton of damage from last months storms and without pause Larry had a huge crew on site the next day and a day later you couldn't tell I had even had anything going on on my home
Seamless, spotless , on time and on budget
I highly recommend him

Everyone was nice and professional and got the job done fast.

Britni M.

It was excellent. We have used two other contractors long ago for major work, both either incompetent or a crook. One of them was so bad that the work caused major rotting in our 1830s house. CHS fixed all of that. They came early, stayed until 5:00, except when rain delays led them to stay until 7:00 to get the work done. The crew was exceptionally experienced. They saved our house.

Steven E.

It was excellent. It was done quickly and done on time.

Philip W.

Crew arrived promptly and worked diligently until done. They were supervised and Larry checked in frequently as well. Larry gave me my quote on the spot and ALWAYS returned my phone calls.

linda M.

Incredible I had two roofs that needed to be done My main house and an apartment Both done the same day fantastic

tom P.

This company is upfront & honest with everything they do. Very professional. I was given a very reasonable quote for a complete siding job which included removal & disposal of old wooden siding. The crew was very detail oriented, punctual, professional & worked very well together. Every night they would clean up the whole perimeter around the house leaving nothing behind. Since we have a dog they took great care to not leave any sharp objects or nails in our grass. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a hard working, honest, detail oriented & caring team. They went beyond our expectations & helped transform our house into a very new & sharp looking house. This company will go beyond your expectations for sure with thier quality work. Thank you Community Home Services!

Larry followed through with everything, was on time, and did an excellent job. We would absolutely hire him again for additional work.

John N.

He was very friendly and professional with the estimate process.

Timothy H.

We hired Larry and his crew for previous work and are, yet again, so glad we did. The crew knows what they're doing, are very professional and honest. We had a hiccup regarding electrical work but Larry took care of it and everything worked out great. We have a 16 month old toddler running around the house (gone during the day) and the crew took the time to make the area safe for her before they left. Not too many people would even think of that. We're still very impressed with their work and look forward to having them back again; you can't go wrong with these guys. They're clean, they care and they're great! Thank you again Larry!

Jaimie A.

We found an issue in our attic and put in a quote request; I had a call within an hour. They came out the next day and gave us a quote. The work was originally planned for 2 days but the men worked very hard and got it all done in one day. They installed roof and ridge vents and had to replace an entire outer wall. The quality of work is spot on! They were all very professional and when they left they cleaned up everything, you couldn't even tell they were here. I will be hiring them again in the future!

When it was time to do some remedial repairs on my house I was having difficulty finding my usual contractors and getting a reasonable quote. I decided to check in with Angie's List for the first time ever. There I found Community Home Services, Sanford, ME. I never had heard of this company, but I took stock in the A+ ratings on Angie's List. Owner Larry Ryea came to my house the same day and took notes. A few days later I had a quote that included clean up and dump of old materials. The quote was $1200 -2200. less than other quotes. So, I took a chance and it was a good choice. Community Home Services aims to please and the crew was hard working and considerate all the way through the project that expanded into two window replacements and a chimney repair. And, while they were at it, cleaned my gutters that were much in need of cleaning. Totally recommend Larry Ryea and his crew.

When I first contacted Larry through Angie's List, it was mainly as a consultant, because I was very worried about work that a different contractor was currently doing on my house at the time. Larry came over that evening, looked at the work, and pointed out a long list of obvious problems. He gave me a very reasonable estimate, I fired the first guy (who hadn't shown up in weeks), and Larry's crew, headed by Johnny, took over. They had to rip out all the work the first guy did, and it was AMAZING to watch a truly professional and competent crew work their magic. A crew of 5-6 guys showed up every weekday at 8:30 and worked nonstop (except for a quick lunch) until 5 p.m. or later. They were all highly professional, reliable, and skilled. Whenever I called with a question, Larry ALWAYS called back within an hour at most. The job was a big one -- re-siding our entire house and garage, and Johnny and his team got the job done in 16 days, working long hours and cleaning up at the end of each work day. Their attention to detail was amazing. We are pleased and grateful for a job so well done, and have already hired them to come back and power spray the moss off the north side of our roof. Thank you, CHS!

I was originally a little reluctant to hire Larry because of the old saying " if it seems to good to be true, it probably isn't." Specifically, Larry offered to take on my job at a price that, to me, seemed very fair for the work to be done, but was about 2000-3000.00 below the ridiculously high prices quoted by other roofers I spoke with. In addition, I had one contractor tell me that a large part of roof had been covered over and that the fact that two layers of shingles were in place meant a much higher cost for the job. Larry came up to look at my roof a second time and found that some areas of my roof had been patched with an additional layer of shingles and instead of raping me with additional charges, charged only an extra 25.00 per square for stripping those areas. On the day that his crew came to do the roof, they arrived about 8:00 am and I had a new roof (16 square) by 4:00. His crew worked non-stop, only taking a break for lunch. They left my yard cleaner than when they started. I would recommend Larry and his crew to anyone looking for a quality re-roof for a fair price from somebody who won't charge you some exorbitant fee because "that is what everyone else charges" So far no issues with roof.

Richard M.

Larry and his crew at Community Home Services were awesome. They showed up on time, completed the work in a timely manner, and were very knowledgeable. They beat everyone else In price, and represented great value. They brought my home back to life. I will be hiring them again for other projects.

mike L.

Both pitched roof and addition roof were done in one day! I was very pleased with the results. The only issue I had was with my not being contacted to let me know that I would have to call DirectTV about my dish (which cost me more money).

Anita R.

I was really impressed with him and his crew..I found that Larry was very fussy and showed a lot of attention to detail and getting everything precise..He didn't rush and had patience with his crew that helped him..They all were very nice and did work hard..They went above and beyond what my expectations were..I didn't know alot about what they did but learned a lot..I would definately hire them for any other job I needed doing..I love my new steel roof and windows..The house looks amazing..He does other stuff besides roof and windows like remodeling, siding, chimney repairs, gutters, yard work, painting and a variety of tree services..If you want it done right, I recommend Community Home Services..I am glad I found them..

Joseph L.

They got back to me quickly to schedule estimate when some of the other company's didn't even call back. Came on a Sunday to give me estimate at my convenience. Showed up on time on both the estimate and to do the work. Performed all the work as promised and even had some extra labor and materials they had to do but stuck with their original estimate. Very curtious and respectful to my property and surrounding gardens. Worked long hours to complete in the two days as promised.

Mark T.

Larry and team were awesome. Very pleased with the quality of workmanship and total overall experience. I would highly recommend and would use again!

James M.

Larry and crew were great. They returned my calls and did the job promptly. They paid attention and did the job properly. I will definitely call them again!

Elizabeth S.

Larry and his team replaced our roof, built a dormer and repaired an aging back porch. We were extremely pleased with the final outcome. Larry kept us informed throughout the duration of the project. His guys worked in all weather conditions to get the job done and always left the area picked up.

Laura T.

We are Aaron and Rose Brown from Kennebunk Maine. We hired them to do our roof and our siding for the House and Our Garage. It was Larry Ryea Crew they did an awesome job. Would recommended them to everyone. We would like to Thank Them

Aaron B.

They came and got the job done in 3 days that took other contractor weeks and weeks to get to. Wish I had hired them right from the start. Lesson learned.

Robert S.

outstanding job, highly responsive and followed through with all commitments
