We use have something done to say that we arrange for somebody else to do something for us.
e.g.: Garrett had the roof repaired. (Garrett arranged for somebody else to repair it).
Sometimes, have something done is used to say that something, usually is not nice, happens to somebody or their belongings.
e.g.: Mary had all her money stolen while she was on holiday.
