stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
same as everyone who deals with him. sob story to get payment up front. then he disappears with the money. a straight up thief. google his name or phone number. years and years of thievery. search his name on calif court records. he has been sued many times. he is moving across state lines looking for new victims. watch out! dont be his next victim. he did part of the work. then asked for more money. that was the last time he worked on the job. left floors undone. expensive flooring outside. bags of carpeting every where. and lied and lied and lied. fought and cursed with my neighbors over his truck blocking their garage. positive reviews were written by him.

Ron did my job in Sherman Oaks and I'm very happy!

Ron Roberts Hardwood Floors was recommended to me from a co worker. I had seen the negative reviews but my co workers floors looked beautiful. So I gave him a chance. We are so glad that we did. He installed new flooring in our entire house. He sanded it and finished it beautifully. He and his crew were very professional and clean. The floors are beautiful. We are excited to have friends and family for the holidays and will be referring Ron to everyone.

This is a complaint website.

It is not a forum for apple polishing or free advertising.

How vain and silly of you to be "excited".

Ron just did my hardwood floors in Northridge.

My wife and I had seen the negative reviews after we had already received a bid from him. We had given him a deposit of $1,600.00 three days prior. I called him because we were very concerned about what we had seen online and told him we were reconsidering having him do our job. He immediately teturned our deposit which he hadn't even cashed yet, and after a long, positive discussion, my wife and I decided to have him do our whole house with new oak flooring anyway. He and his crew did an excellent job. They were very professional and it turned out beautiful! We have since refered him to my mother in law and another friend. Our experience with Ron was excellent and we are happy that we went with our instinct by hiring him. We can't be more satisfied.

ron roberts wrote this review. an attempt to cover all the bad reviews

He's a thief and a liar, he has no license, took my money and ruined the floors

A neighbor referred me to him, said he did a good job on her floors, I should have googled him but I didn't. I would have known that he is a *** man, had me pay him before work was completed, had to come back several times to try to make the floors look decent, made them worse, clearly didn't know what he was doing and then disappeared. Come to find out he has scammed many people this way, left their floors a wreck, is no longer licensed and has several judgements against him. Someone told me he has done time in jail for this.. a very bad guy who lies right to your face.

Ron Roberts belongs in jail!

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Ron Roberts of West Hills, CA of Ron Roberts Hardwoods, who advertises on Craigslist is the most dishonest person I've ever met. He takes your money, doesn't show up to do the job, has scammed dozens of people. The internet is full of complaints against him. He has dozens of small claims judgments against him also. He's being investigated right now by LAPD. Use our bad experiences as your guide. He asks for money up front and gives you all sorts of reasons why he should be paid up front. When he gets your money, usually meeting at an ATM, you'll never hear from him again.

Ron Roberts Hardwood Floors - Bamboo And Hardwood Floors Flooring Installation Review from Alhambra, California

I didn't have as bad of an experience as most of you did, but the guy does do sloppy work. He installed and stained my unfinished oak flooring but his finish coating was horrible. Streaks everywhere. Now I have to get a TRUE professional to come and fix/ finish his shotty work.

Ron Roberts Hardwood Floors - Flooring Review from Torrance, California

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

Two months and a week after contract signed more floors are not complete. After I paid him fully for the job all motivation on his part ceased.

He has worked one day at my place since payment and that's only because I contacted and contacted and contacted him and told him I would file police report and take him to court. Otherwise he claimed worker was sick, family member sick then death. Last excuse was because it was raining. When it stopped raining.

No word from him.After he ran out of excuses he just stopped contacting me.

As the other customer said - BEWARE. Your flooring job is too expensive to trust to this ***

Hi. I work for a TV show that's interested in exposing Ron Roberts for what he is continuously doing to people.

I would love to speak with you more about this.

Can you give me a call to discuss: 818-972-**** or you can email me at ariellemshapiro@***.com. If I can get enough people together to confirm Ron Roberts' actions and collect pictures of any shotty work, I should be able to move forward with this investigation.

Looks like he advertises on Angie's list since 2013. Address provided on their website. Guess they don't screen their advertisers.

BUYER BEWARE!

Ron claims to be a "contractor" that can get "contractor prices." Truth is his contractors license has been revoked for more than 10 years! Information can be verified thru the Consumer Affairs California Contactors Board at CA.GOV. This means consumers have no protection thru insurance claims against Ron if he takes a deposit from you, fails to perform or if he or one of his hired employees are injured in your home. ANYONE performing work for more than $500 must be a LICENSED contractor. Consumers are not required to pay more than a 10% deposit and no more than $1,000. The NUMEROUS lawsuits and judgments filed primarily in LA County small claims court against Ron would not have been awarded without proper notice to the defendant and without proof of evidence. Ron fails to appear in court to defend himself but continues his efforts at salvaging his reputation thru on-line forums. Beware LA COUNTY he continues to illegally advertise thru CRAIGSLIST targeting high end areas such as Malibu. Unlawful advertising and contracts with Ron should be immediately reported to the California Contractor License Board. And if you still decide to hire Ron let him perform the work - if he even shows up. Unlicensed contractors have no recourse to sue for non payment of services, if it even gets that far. Seems he likes cold hard cash first then there's no need for him to show up to perform services as promised.

Ron Roberts Hardwood Floors aka R&R Hardwood is a Thief!

Ron Roberts DBA as Ron Roberts Hardwood Floors and R&R Hardwood is a Thief!!! I received a proposal to install some Bamboo Floors, he needed $3725 up front to purchase the materials from his supplier at his contractor's prices. After a few delays I asked for a copy of his materials invoice, at that point I never heard from him again. He doesn't respond to emails (can only reach him through LA County Craigslist) or his phone which he does not answer. Probably due to the fact that I did some in depth research and found that he owes a minimum of $30,000 dolllars in small claims judgments filed through Orange County, CA and Los Angeles, CA courts. Who knows how many others he has ripped off and they just never pursued action against him.

Hey everybody! This is what happens when you get divorced in California.

Your drug addicted, coke *** ex and her loser friends try and extort money out of you (for more drugs), and when that fails, they try and destroy your reputation. DON'T FALL FOR IT! I hired Ron off of craigslist, gave him 400.00 to get materials and then freaked out when I read all the lies posted by his ex-wife and her friends. Much to my relief, Ron showed up the next day at 730 am as agreed, completed the work, made our 1957 Hardwood floors look brand new, and got paid the balance.

These two women are the ONLY complaints! If you read carefully, you can tell it's not true...it's the same exact lie on several different sites.

I am so happy that I called him and I am contracting him to do the rest of this house and to do my rental property as well. Ron

A court of law does not lie - check Orange County or Los Angeles County Small Claims Records ( you may have to pay a few bucks but well worth the risk of losing your money to this guy) The guy won't show up to defend himself to a judge or the accuser but is trying really hard where no proof is needed! Who's the real coke addict here? Seems the writer of the comment is the same person that the complaint is about or is it just coincidence that they are both named Ron???

I personally had an EXCELLENT experience with Ron and his professionalism! I have referred him to many of my friends and they are thrilled with him and their beautiful floors as well.

Every contractor has disgruntled customers with unrealistic expectations that sue people just for money. Ron may have lost some court cases because of this, but considering how long he's been in business - 29 years - it's an impressive track record! As far as the post prior to this ending in what someone assumes was written by Ron himself is reaching.

I am sure he has had customers with the same popular name as him. It also looks like the person was about to start another sentence starting with the name Ron and probably accidentally sent it to soon.

I know Ron and he's done floors in my homes for years. I have always had great experiences with him.

The negative complaints posted started at the EXACT same time as his drug addicted ex started dating another drug addict. Pretty considental I think.
