They were extremely professional and took all the stress off my plate.

My husband and I hired Nick with Sureguard for an interior and exterior project. Per Nick, Total project would be complete in 90 days, it ended up taking 10 months. After 6 months of an extremely stressful process, one evening we had to ask multiple times for Nick to leave our property. Nick was yelling at us and threatening to bull doze our house down if we didnt give him an advanced payment. After that we contacted the owner who tried to save the job by sending a crew down from Oregon and find other local employees and subs to save the project as much as he could. Heres some cliff notes of what it was like. The first 6 months, the site was covered in demo, supplies, tools everywhere, nails (we have a two year daughter). Nick promised to do a lot of the work himself, (**I will do all the tiling, I will be on the job site every day, I will do all the detail work, I will do all the painting**) and did about 1/10 of what he said he would. Several brand new items were damaged by Sureguard and needed to be replaced or worked on: wood floors, front door, shower faucet, windows, window frames, bathroom vanity. Plumbing of the sink wasnt done right and flooded new wood floors. Nick raised his voice and yelled at us at least 6 times throughout this process. Most of these were when we had questions about a change order or the plan of the project. We felt trapped, bullied and verbally abused on multiple occasions. He threatened to walk from the job when it was gutted and we were living in a rental and felt like we had no options. We witnessed him yelling and cussing at his employees on 4 occasions. Nick issued 2 change orders without written or verbal agreement after the work was done. We were asked to make 3 advancements on payments, he called them **progress payments** that were not in our contract. The last one he asked was the final payment. When we asked to meet with him about our concerns of paying him 80% **progress payment** of final payment before the work was done Nick withheld work. He said he couldnt make payroll that week without the payment. We found what I believe to be drug paraphernalia on our property and found an employee drinking what I believe to be alcohol while working. Later Nick stated this employee got addicted to meth and was no longer working for him. The employee hired to replace him stapled ram board into our brand new wood floors. Nick stated he **couldnt manage him** and he stayed on the job site for 2 months until he wasnt given work. 4/5 of the employees who worked on our home left Sureguard during the process. Each one offered to do work as freelancer, outside of Sureguard, one said **so you dont have to deal with Nick.** 3 of them complained freely about his management. One called us saying **Nick owes me payment and wont return my calls** One stopped by our home one day to ask if we knew why he got fired. The owner was able to gather resources and almost finish the job. He sent Vlad from Oregon who redid a lot of the exterior siding, fascia, doors, windows, and trim that was done poorly. Marcos who was newly hired at the end of the project was always respectful and did quality work, finishing and fixing interior parts of the project. We hired external help to redo a lot of the work and finish the job as well including 3 guys from another company who worked for a full week, stucco guys, painters, and carpenters, electricians and we still have things incomplete. My husband and I both had panic attacks on multiple occasions from the stress of this experience and working with Nick. We write this in hopes that this doesnt happen to anyone else. If youd like anymore details feel free to reach out.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
