Lies , lies and more lies

Do not under any circumstances hire this man or his so called company work on your home or business or anyone you know's property. You absolutely Can Not trust him. And all he does is lie and he cuts corners to save money and lies about it. He said he ordered a $700 tub to go in a master bathroom and it ended up being a $20 jacuzzi tub he got from a junkyard and sealed up jets and spray painted it! And then when the owner confronted him he completely lied. He's awful and he's taken advantage of a lot of people. Look on Angie's list to see more complaints. He's not to be trusted.

Campbell Construction is a JOKE!!!

First let me start off by saying Campbell Construction is a complete and utter joke! My husband and I hired Nate Campbell to repair our windows which included wood repair, new screens and painted shutters. We hired him in May 2013 and have yet to have this job completed. Nate kept our shutters in his possession up until 2 weeks ago when I placed a call to the Police department to have them returned. I went through phone call after phone call, text message after text message and continued to be ignored throughout this whole process. In addition to this story there lies another one. I made the mistake of referring him to my mother to have the underbrush at her house removed as well as having some trees cut down and filling in *** with dirt that had to be purchased by Nate Campbell. This contract was signed in June 2013. Similar to the previous story posted, Nate used the weather as an excuse to not finish the project. Nate came out and removed the trees and began cutting down some of the underbrush on the first day but little to our surprise that would be the only day he came out. He coned my mother into giving him money to obtain the dirt. There were suppose to be 4 truck loads of dirt delivered but instead there was only 1 load delivered that wasn't even full. The pile of dirt remains in my mother's yard at this time. My husband nor myself have been able to contact Nate. He avoids our phone calls and messages even though he lives right up the street from us. He resides at 60 Lee Rd 2006, Phenix City,Al 36870 Nathaniel Campbell is an absolute con-artist that will be responsible for his actions when our court date is set! If anyone would like to join our lawsuit please contact me my name is Allena Grillo-706-577-**** or Quinton Harris- 706-577-****.

OMG, These comments about Nathan has me really worried. I hired him to remodel a house back in March 2014, paid for all the materials up front (because he has worked for me for about 3 years and I trusted him) I also paid for 6 windows and two transoms (that had to be special ordered) for a sun room, $1300 for the windows alone.

He left the job one day in April, and I did not hear anything from him for several weeks. When I finally heard from him; he said he had been in the hospital and was going to Emory for checkup that Thursday and would be in touch with me in a few days. I have not heard from him since. Here it is August 2014.

He has completed only about 1/2 of the work I contracted him to do. He won't answer my phone calls to let me know where I can go pick up my windows; He won't answer my calls, my messages or texts. I trusted him completely, since he had done work for me over the past three years and I had been extremely pleased with all his work up until this point, even though it would always take twice as long to complete a job as he said.

I hope that he told me the truth about being hospitalized and I wish him a speedy recovery if he truly is ill. I believed in him and have many other jobs lined up for him; I was waiting on him to get well so he could finish my house and get started on all the other projects I was specifically saving for him.

Concrete Patio by Campbell's Construction, Phenix City AL.

The absolute worst concrete patio in my back yard attached to my house, I am very dissatisfied. Humps and dips, water puddles on it, water collects and puddles right next to the house. There is Concrete debris all around in the grass. Nate Campbell had me fooled into signing a contract with him that was in July 2013 and was projected to end July 2013. At the time this review is being written and submitted Campbell’s Construction has not fully completed the job. Nate Campbell lures you in with his “good talk" and a "can do" attitude so I signed a contract for a 10' X 21' concrete patio. Campbell's Construction, or Nate Campbell; and a couple random workers came out, and made a wooden form for the concrete, I didn't see any ground leveling, or grading performed. A few days later a truck came with the concrete and they started to fill in the form. The truck ran out of concrete and the form was not filled all the way. They left the last half of the concrete patio unfinished. The weather started to turn to rain, Nate and all the workers kicked off their boots, and dropped their gear all over my yard got in their truck and left. They didn’t cover the concrete patio to try and protect it from the rain. Over the next few days the rain washed away the first couple inches of the concrete into a lot next to my house where it formed a mound. I asked Nate what happened he said “it rained” he also put blame on the concrete company “they didn’t bring enough concrete.” He said. Nate and his random workers disappear for a weeks’ worth of rain. The rain stops and almost 10 sunny hot days pass by and no phone calls from Nate, no text message from Nate, so I call Nate and ask him “hey guy did you forget about me? There has been nothing but good weather for almost 10 days now, I haven’t heard from you in almost 2 weeks. When can you come out and finish this job?” A few days later he came out. They make another wooden form, higher than the last form. A few more days go by and I have to call again and ask” when are you going to complete this concrete patio? I explain to him my yard looks like a construction zone for almost a month now.” He tells me he has a truck for the following week. The truck comes the following week along with Nate and his random workers. Guess what? Nate ran out of concrete again! I could not believe this was happening, what a joke. When they start leaving, I ask Nate “what’s going on?” he tells me “they ran out of concrete” and blames the concrete company again and they leave. No contact no phone call, I call Nate no answer, I leave voicemail, no returned calls, the guy is unreachable. When I Finally get a response from Nate Campbell, I ask Nate” when are you coming out to finish” Nate would say “I will be there tomorrow” or “I’ll be there when I drop off my helper” or just not answer the phone at all. He never showed up when he said he would. I get a hold of him again after many attempts and tell him “I paid you to do this job, we have a contract. Nate you do not need to treat me like I am side job get this finished”. I tell Nate “you need to tell me a definite date you are going to be here to finish.” he tells me another date and of course he does not show up. When I finally get a response from him again Nate tells me “I’m not taking the chance of getting struck by lightning.” He told me “if the weather is anything like it is here.” I let out a small chuckle to Nate’s answer because I could not believe this guy was serious. If there was a cloud in the sky Nate would use it as a reason to not come over. When I got to talk to him on the phone he would pick days that would have high chance of rain. I suspect it was in order for Nate to have reason to not come over. A concrete company representative shows up at my house in August and starts telling me Nate never paid for the concrete from a month ago and that my property, my house will have a lien filled against it. The concrete company representative/bill collector hands me a concrete bill with Nate Campbell’s name on it. I can’t believe this is happening to me, especially when I gave Nate $1000.00 cash to start the job. I’m getting frustrated at this point so I call Nate almost daily asking “when are you going to pay for the concrete they are telling me they are going to put a lien on my house” Nate finally returns my call and tells me “I mailed them a check. I don’t know why they are contacting you” This was a lie. I stayed in contact with the concrete company until 20 minutes before the concrete company closed on the last day before a lien was to be filled on my house. They never received any form of payment from Nate or Campbell’s Construction ever. I end up having to drive down to the company and pay the bill myself because I don’t want a lien on my house or property over a 480$ concrete bill. Nate finally comes to my house with bags of quickcrete to try and make the surface of the concrete patio smooth and finish the patio where he had run out of concrete the first 2 times. They start on the third layer of concrete and I’m thinking to myself by the time they get it right, the concrete patio will be up to the bottoms of the windows on my house. They smooth out most of the rough rocky lumpy spots. And since there was rain in the forecast for the following day they actually put down plastic and tarps to cover it. I leave the tarps in place. A few days pass and I try to get a hold of Nate for almost a week. No answer, no text message, doesn’t return my calls. I’m finally so fed up, I decided to call the police and file a police report. When the police came to my house I explained everything that had happened to the Officers. The police officer was so kind He called Nate for me on his personal cell phone, Guess what? Nate answered on the second ring! The police explained to him they were with the police department and asked Nate when he was going to complete his contract. Nate told the Officer “ he would be here tomorrow.” Nate Showed up, I talked with him, I told Nate “All you had to do was return my calls, call me back, talk to me, let me know what’s going on” and I asked him “What did you expect me to do, not call the police?”Nate answered “ I understand, I would of done the same thing” Which I expect was to shut me up, tell me what I want to hear because when I went inside the house, Nate immediately packed up all his tools and gear that he had left in my yard for the last 2 months and I seen him in his truck speeding off down the street. The job started July 1st and is still incomplete as of today Sep 13th. I haven’t had any form of contact with Nate Campbell or Campbell’s construction, in person, by phone, voicemail, or text message ever since… He still has not finished the job, he still owes me screens for all my back windows that are covered in concrete splatter, and he left humps, lumps, low spots which hold puddles of water on the patio. The patio is so uneven when you walk across it you trip over high spots and stumble into low spots. Nate Campbell and Campbell’s Construction in Phenix City, AL. has proven to be unprofessional, unskilled, and untrustworthy. If you ever had Campbell’s Construction work for you make sure he has paid his bills, or else you could have a lien on your property. To me this seems like a scam, I pay contractor, contractor orders materials and doesn’t pay for materials. Contractor keeps money, material company files lien on property. I sell my property, the lien money is taken out of sale of property. I lose, contractor wins again.

Please contact me. He just took over $15,000 of material money and never produced the finished products...cabinets, flooring, etc.

myself and one other person I've found are filing suit. It's always good to have more than 1 or 2 people to show the courts how he plays his games.

Please call me. 706-341-****!!

how can a contractor sleep at night while taking money for work he did not do. this is just horrible

I'm sure that if you contacted him and approached the matter respectfully your complaints and issues could be resolved professionally and without such childish and disrespectful antics! I have known Mr.

Campbell for years and used his company for many personal and professional projects and have never been dissatisfied! He holds true to his word! There are times where a project didn't not go according to plan or a mistake was made, (after all we are human and mistakes do happen) but after approaching him and discussing the matter an agreement was always reached that was satisfactory and met my needs! As far as the comment about him stealing money from the second client and not returning calls or texts.

While I will say a business arrangement it just that... A "friend" would also understand that things happen, jobs take longer to complete than expected and sometimes that means that a job that was penciled in as a favor to a friend may have to be pushed back! Why don't you take a moment to swallow your pride and think about the situation a bit further? Why would he be pushing your job back?

Does he actually charge you what he should be? And does he do work for you that saves you from hiring someone that costs an arm and a leg? Oh and one last thing to think about Ryan... How many times have you ask him to do work that you couldn't readily compensate him for that he had to wait on you to be paid for?

Now as we all know there are two sides to every story and I refuse to believe that you were completely stiffed on a job and this man just ran off with your money!

If that were the case you would be taking him to court on the matter instead of spending time whining about your "injustice" on some website or on Facebook! God bless you!

Sorry TC. Defend Nate all you want but I sued him. He Is A Rip off.

I have known Nate Campbell for several years now and always held him in high regards as a friend and respectful business owner. However, it has now been over one month since I have paid Nate $600 to begin working on a closet organizer for my wife. He continually pushed back start dates, but assured us that he had made progress on the cabinets.

Since Monday September 9th I have been unable to reach him because he will not answer my calls or text messages. Oddly enough, when I called from his roommate’s phone last week he answered immediately.

I know now that I am not the only person that Nate has done this too and judging by his integrity I’m sure I won’t be the last. Yes, I know about the $300 that was taken from a mutual friends Grandmother to replace her door and additional friend’s cousin that took him to court over not finishing his remodel.

I’m sure that I will never have that money returned to me and don’t expect I will see Nate anymore, but would like to say that if one day he calls and apologize for stealing from my family and I, we would be more willing to forgive.

Sorry for everyone else and their loss.
