Criminal Beware!!!!!

Hired Dennis Rodriguez to refinish our stairs. Told us we couldn’t be in the home due to dust and that we also couldn’t access the upstairs while the stain dried. When we were finally able to get upstairs he was long gone and we immediately realized he had ransacked every single bedroom. Thousands of dollars of jewelry, money and other items have been taken. We have video footage surveillance from our neighbours house that shows he’s the only one to enter the home. If anyone has any information they could provide it would be appreciated

Beware!!

Beware of a business/company called Southern Flooring ran by Dennis Rodriguez of Kitchener. This business does not exist. He is just a bullshitter that just ripped me off for $2000. I got a bit suspicious of him when he kept making all kinds of excuses every time I called him or texted him. BTW the reviews are right about him. He is not even married, he has a girlfriend and does not even own a home. Just read the reviews. He lives in a rental home in Kitchener. (28 Bismark Ave, Kitchener) and his business address in Oakville (2010 Winston Park, Oakville) does not have any business by that name in that building. He took his website down as he knows that I am going after him and so will others once they have more information about him. Here is his 2 phone numbers,
Cell - 647-924-7756
Home - 519-590-7756
I have a lawyer looking at my case, so if you are a victim of his, you can contact me by email and I will give you any information that I can to help you with your case. My email jcmarshall1976@gmail.com He has shaven his beard the last time I saw him. Dec-1-2016.

ILLEGAL BUSINESS

Southern Flooring

CANADA

Hired this "company" through a referral... BIG MISTAKE #1.
Stair refinishing took over 2 months, terrible job, had to get another company in to finish it. When reviewing his invoices, the business number kept changing. Call Canada REvenue Agency, the business has been 'closed' for several years.
He is charging you tax and not reporting it to the government. I sent in the paperwork to prove this to the CRA, need to follow up on the progress.

Done Right and on time

We are more than happy with services by Dennis and his crew. We had a tight deadline and a lot of work need to be done. Dennis reassured us that it would be done on time and would keep us updated. We could not be happier with the work done. My wife and I were both skeptical but in the end we have zero complaints. I would recommend and hire Dennis again for my next home renovations.

Hardwood Flooring and Bullnosing. BEWARE

Upon hiring Southern Flooring we though he was so professional. THOUGHT. He came with this contract of 50 down upon first day of work, 25 percent half way though project and 25 upon completion.
I have been a home star user for many years but I failed to check this guy out because he was so professional. Paid him 1000 first day and 880.00 for bull nosing. He completed 375.00 worth of work and didn't show up for his next day of work.
This guy is smooth, he will tell you stories like my wife had her brother over and pulled out the carpet, so I have to bring my tools home to work on a Saturday to never return again. Also his crew is working in Montreal and his wife will not let him travel...lol. Not sure if this scum has a wife. I can only hope if he has the children he said he has they are not raised with his ethics.
Please stay away from this guy. He was driving a red Honda civic and a dark blue gmc suv, to bad I did not get his licence plate number.
I only wished I had checked this guy out and saw the pervious post regarding this business.
I am pretty sure the couple of reviews that are good about this company he wrote them himself.

BE VERY CAREFUL

We hired Dennis to install laminate and stairs. He seemed very nice and professional and even signed a contract with a $150 refund for every day overdue. Unfortunately, that contract isn't worth the paper it's written on.

Dennis was supposed to finish the job in mid-July and it is now the end of August and it's still not done.

He has stopped answering calls and responding to emails and any day he has said he was going to show up he didn't.

Here are other reviews and people he has left hanging:

If you doubt this post, do the following:

1. Ask for a business license from southern flooring and verify it online
2. Don't give 25% up front like he asks and definitely don't give 50% on the day he starts like his contract asks. Protect yourself and make sure that 90% of the payment is when the project is complete to your satisfaction.
3. Get a real address (from his driver's license). His contract gives an 'accounting' office in Oakville and you won't be able to do anything with it.

Love my stairs

I had met 3 other contractors to quote my stair case, all the prices were competitive but we not to impressed with their lack of professionalism. My husband and I want to find a contractor with great referrals and someone we felt like that made us feel comfortable with in our home. Dennis was great right from the beginning. Very respectful and professional. He provide us with a detailed quote written along with a contract! No other contractor that we met gave us either of those together. He took the time gave us a price generated his work for 6 months and set a deadline back by a refund. We ended up hiring him and he did a great job. We veryou happy with the final product. He always kept us in formed of any issues or suggestions. He was always able to answer our questions and always check in with us to be sure we were satisfied as he worked on the stairs. When he finished the job he and his employees cleaned up well and asked us lastly if we were happy a day we were. I spent the next our taking pictures and sending them to my friends. I would 100% rehire Dennis again and recommend him to anyone.

So Happy!

My husband and I tried to install laminate flooring throughout our house but weren't very good or fast at that. We were a month into a home reno and decided to hire a professional to take over and Finish the job.
We ended up hiring Dennis to install 1300 sqft of laminate baseboards, door casings and 12 doors. We were very impressed with his professionalism and contract he gave us. His guys came in worked fast and very clean throughout their time there. I was very happy with the work done and would recommend them to anyone.
Dennis made our home reno a breeze to with stand!
