I wish there was a way to give this company negative stars. One of the worst experiences ever. After a break in, my insurance company sent this joke of a company to my house. They did the emergency repair of the front door and then took weeks to get a new door to replace the damaged one. No communication in between. As they are repairing the door, they pull out the frame, but don't replace the 1x4s to secure the screws in to. I mention this to the guys and they said that's how it is, the screws just float there. I told them that this was unacceptable and they finished up and said they would return tomorrow. I sent photos of the "repair to my insurance, and we both agreed that the front entrance was less secure then before the break in. Yack did not return the next day and it took over a month before they did. So while waiting for them, I'm getting letters from my HOA to paint my door, which should have been done by them. My insurance company finally is able to get them back and someone who said he was important said, this wasn't done correctly and they would do it right. Two days later, they job is completed. They were real fast to hit me with my deductible payment. I explained to the man, that due to them taking so long to do their job correctly and the fact that I have three children living at home who are already nervous because of the incident; I had to add additional security measures to my house to make them comfortable. I explained that I would have my check by the end of the month and I would pay them then, he said it was fine. He then proceeds to send me a notification of intent to lien on my house for it before the end of a month. So they think it's alright to do below par work, take months to complete a one day job and then have the nerve to demand payment after stating you understood the end of the month. Avoid at all cost!!

The owner of this business is terrible. Totally unprofessional. He is vulgar and has no manners. He should not be in business.

JDS Surfaces
With all the con artists & unlicensed workers in Vegas, I did extensive research before selecting JDS Surfaces to create & install my new kitchen countertops and breakfast bar. Response to my initial phone call was prompt and their quote for Hanstone beat 2 other bids. Four days after final measurement, 3 workers did a perfectionist job and then cleaned every inch of my kitchen. Over the past 40 years I’ve hired many contractors to work on my homes in 3 states. As such, I rate JDS Surfaces with all 5 GOLD stars.

Repaired water damage from softener drain line, but did not tighten the connection when put back and got water damage again. Then they sent me a past due notice when I and my insurance paid in full saying I am past due for the entire amount over my deductible.
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
