I wanted to Report this contractor as I don't want someone Else getting Ripped off

Nick's Timeless Renovations Nick Hafyce or Nick Hafycy

I had some hardwood floors done last year and just wanted to report a Bad Company.
Installer was contracted via online bidding service to install 675sf of hardwood flooring. Nick was responsive and punctual throughout the experience. His references also checked out. However, two days after he began I was left with bowing, creaking floors and two cracked planks that he installed without first looking at them. Each time I presented a question during the installation Nick rebuffed my concerns citing how much experience he had. Most of the problems were caused when he failed to nail the last five rows of each room, which I had to hire another installer to fix. He was supposed to return three days later to install the transitions and reinstall the baseboards he removed. Instead, I received an email the night before his expected return demanding additional fees to return to the job site and to reinstall the baseboards even though he never previously mentioned and of the fees. Unfortunately for me I had already paid the written contract rate in full since only the transitions and baseboards needed to be installed. In the end I was forced to hire another contractor (who I also rated and highly recommend) to reinstall the improperly installed portions, fix the transitions and install the baseboards.

I do not recommend Nick at all! He is also listed with a F with the BBB as others have been ripped off by NICK. I should have checked

Do not use Don Walker, Home Restoration Service, Plano, Tx. He will bill you double triple your original bid. He walked off my job after I questioned him on his double billing of services, material not used on the job and tools. Work quality was poor. Painting was two colors, cabinets not hung properly, job was only 85 percent complete. I don't think the workers knew how to complete the job.

Be careful is you use the company called I AM PAINTING. He is not honest but claims to be very religious and now my husband needs to pay another contractor to finish work on his roof. He lives in Fallston, MD

Buyer beware.

I have been made aware of this situation between this business and customer. The contractor is a very professional, and does phenomenal work. This client intentionally damaged his floor to get a new one. Many issues with other contractors as well as builder. Bad customer, great contractor, great work, very reasonable prices.

I just want to report Carl Raiser/Razor from Superior wash or Artisan overlays based in Louisville,ky. He was very unprofessional and did not complete job as I was told he would. He poured epoxy on my basement floor but it never dried. Then it took him over a month to come back and fix it after I told him I was exploring legal options. He left stains on my walkout patio, which he was suppost to stain in the first place and never did. He does horrible work and has a poor work ethic. So if your going to have concrete stained or sealed or have epoxy poured. I highly reccomend you don't use this guy!!!!!!!

Do not ever hire Joe Galindo to do any work for you . Last year in August he worked on my patio, besides the work not being completed on time, his check to the concrete people bounced and not only that, we ended up paying the concrete company $2000 dollars otherwise the concrete company were going to put a lien on our house. We tried to contact Joe Galindo multiple times but he never responded! He lives in the Hesperia area in California and is a very smooth talker!
BEWARE !

DO NOT ever hire Edgar Martinez to do painting jobs. Does lousy job and never comes back to complete job. If you call him he gives you a time he'll be there and never shows up. He provides receipts with the name of E&G Services. He has a helper with him.

I am writing this complaint to warn people in the Cascade, Montana area. We hired ATHIO CONSTRUCTION, owner Steve Boettger, to build our house. He took our money, but never completed our house. Very little else than the foundation, frame, and roof was worked on, and much of that was improperly built. We know of another couple who got ripped off by Boettger in the exact same way - started their house, got their money, and ditched the project. He touts himself as a Christian, and ATHIO even stands for All To Him I Owe. But Mr. Boettger is not in the business of building houses - he's just in the business of ripping people off. See "HOBB ATHIO CONSTRUCTION STEVE BOETTGER" on Google.

DO NOT hire American Impact Specialist owned by Robert Clements in fort Lauderdale, Florida to install windows or doors for you. He will deliver a shoddy and poor workmanship and put a lien against your house. Just look up http://www.broward.org and see how many liens he put against customers for the last few years. BE AWARE

Do not hire JM Construction Jonas Miller at 8703 Milan Rd New haven Indiana 46771. He was to put a steel roof on our house and vinyl siding. he didn't measure anything right and his workmanship is so bad on the siding. We had to get 3 new estimates and all are about 9000.00 to fix his mess. Bad Workmanship
