We had Jerry from All pro floors come take a look at our house and give an estimate to get our floors refinished. His price was decent, and he seemed professional enough so we decided to go with him. The night before he was supposed to come do our floors he called to say the technician was ill and couldn't make it. Now, 1st off, Jerry told us HE would be doing the floors himself, not a technician. 2nd, this was a pretty big inconvenience since I had plans to get the kids, dogs and myself out of town for 2 days during the refinishing. I told him to let me know asap so I could make plans to leave town again, he said he'd call at the end of the week....that was 2 weeks ago. My husband has called and left him at least 1 message, but we never heard back. We have since made an appointment with a more reputable company that is charging even less, wish we would have never wasted our time with All Pro.

Jerry is a thief. He had a couple guys who didn't know what they were doing refinish my floor. His guys put blue masking tape on my trim and when it was removed it tore off the paint. He told me to give him the bill to repair the damage. $250+ later he hasn't bothered to repay me or to return my phone calls. His workmanship is poor and he is dishonest.

I was wondering who the other company was.
We are looking for a good floor refinisher & was considering going with All Pro, would rather not have a bad experience.

I only wish I had read these comments before I had Jerry do my kitchen floor. He is not reliable. He would show up all hours of the day and some days not show up. Until I complained about no shows and no calls he started calling with excuses. He was supposed to put 4 coats on my floor and only put 2. I told him I wouldnt be able to pay him the other half of the money I owed him until 3 days later and he said Okay, I will come back then, and finish. I said fine. You will be here for sure? He said yes. That was last Friday. I never saw or heard from him and have not heard anything from him since. I have learned a lesson about hiring anyone out of a newspaper ad. There are to many people out there that are not reputable.

Bob, Jerry is a cheat! I paid him $3,500 for as a down payment to install wood floor on my 2nd floor. He never showed up!!!! The start date of the project is May 28th, and its now September. He keeps giving me excuses, and say that one of his installer got into an accident, or that his technician is sick. I called him for a refund, and he said he already purchased my wood from Wisconsin, and can't be refunded. Now he won't even return my phone call. What a fucking bastard. I would not be surprised if your wood is paid with my downpayment. When you see him at your house tell him to eat sh*t and die. I hope he gets into an accident and get killed.

I had Jerry refinish the floors in my loft in 2010. He did a good job and I was pleased with the work. So, when my neighbors had a plumbing leak that damaged 450 feet of my antique wood floors, I called Jerry.(When I had the floors redone the first time, I called 5 contractors, Jerry was one of them. He was the only one who said that he had access to the antique wood flooring, and a few boards needed to be replaced.) After the leak, 450 feet of flooring needed to be replaced. When I called Jerry, he came right over and said that he would order the wood. I gave him a deposit...and he told me he would order the wood and gave me a date when he would begin the work. When the date approached he did not show. I reached him and he said that he was in ST. Louis, he said that his wife was in the hospital quite ill. Weeks later I finally drove to his home and left a letter for him. He called me immediately and we set a date. He missed his commitment date and he hasn't returned my calls. I travel extensively for business and this is rather frustrating. I am currently out of town, but will return on Friday. If I cannot contact him by then, I will go to his home!

Thats Funny. Rose Vidrine has never answered a phone call. No person has called her regarding anything that needed refinished. Regardless...Jerry was the cheat and Rose Vidrine was not apart of the company. You probably spoke to Jerrys wife.

Jerry was a con artist. He was being followed by a detective because he had stole 50 thousand dollars from his ex wifes retirement. So what he would do is place the bids...keep the money, then go spend the money on whatever he wanted. He had 5 aliases, conned people in 5 different states including nebraska. I used to work for him until I found out he was a scam artist. He fled state and never returned. I was left without a paycheck, and jobless. If it weren't for me, the elderly couple who were having their floors refinished at the time would not have had them done. I stayed and finished the job for them. Not for jerry but for me and the people. Infact, I remember jerry telling me that there was a house that needed sanded and he bid the job...floors and stairs. Then he decided to DOUBLE BID the stairs adding another 200 dollars to his hip pocket. I told them that he did that so they refused to pay him. Just because jerry was a cheat did not mean EVERYONE had to suffer. So long story short...Jerry Wiggins, Jerry Stella, Dean Wiggins and so on is a complete con artist and should be watched out for. He will use his southern charm and his old age to make you feel comfortable with him. Thats his way of taking advantage.

Okay, I screwed up. Rose Vidrine DID work there and although she wasn; the one who usually answered the phone, she is the Business Manger so I suppose she could have answered the phone.
And yes, I knowingly helped him scam some of those customers. I'm not proud of what I did but I made a killing and it was good while it lasted.
I dont know who you are...but you are not Mark, and if you do not stop this slander against my name I will take legal action. Not once have I scammed a customer. Nice try. Rose Vidrine NEVER spoke to anyone on the phone because she was never affiliated with ALL PRO.

You want to know something funny? Google had her signed in so when anything was posted, it was stored. I think I know who this is. Your probably a upset subcontractor who got fired for some reason. You never met anyone named rose because she never worked there. I was the operations manager, meaning jerry took the bids and I went to do the work. Any scamming that went on was all on jerry, I was scammed just as they were. If you think you are who you say you are...send me a personal email. Infact, I think Ill text you. Working with you, I know your behavior and the way you talk. I will be sure to give your supervisor a call tomorrow and let her know whats going on.

One more thing to the individual claiming to be "Mark". You stated you spoke with someone named Rose Vidrine. You had your user name as Kevin M. Be in mind that your computer has cookies sent to it so it can be tracked. You changed your story from "Kevin M" to "Mark". Its funny that you think you can claim to be someone that you are not.

Then you changed your screen name to "Mark" and still continued with the story that you spoke with her. There is your proof that there are some people out there just trying to start slanderous rumors of others just to entertain themselves.

Very funny imposter. First, I don't know why you're bringing your friend Kevin into the discussion.
Just because Jerry and I screwed a few people out of a few bucks is no reason for you to get uppity. I'll bet you didn't even pay the bill when we sent it to you!!!
So face it, you've been revealed to be a fraud. Rose was the Business Manager, not you!!!!

Gig? Face it Mark. You and Jerry screwed a lot of people out of a lot of money and now that many of us are speaking up about your lying and cheating the authorites will be arresting you soon. Stop trying to deflect attention away from your crimes.

All of the numbers to the sham of a company are disconnected and I'm out thousands of dollars!!! I am a single mother and I cannot afford to let some old scam artist thief (Jerry) steal my money! He told me he and his son in law were religious honest men in business for 25 years! Liar! I googled today (wish I would of done so sooner) and found these complaints! I have called the Bbb, a friend in the prosecutors office Sarpy County, and just filed a police report in Omaha! I also came a crossed a Legacy obituary for a Gerald Wiggins, in November 2012. Don't know if its Jerry W. but I'm pressing charges on all of them... Dean and all of them! Maybe some prison time will prevent this in the future!
