Who we are...


In 2004 TNT Shield, LLC started as a lawn service and decorative curbing landscape business known as TNT Landscape Services that worked as a sub-contractor for AT&T. My wife, Treva and I did site maintenance for over 30 sites in Eastern Tennessee and Kentucky. In 2007, AT&T and Bellsouth merged and TNT was replaced with in-house maintenance people. That is when we refocused TNT as design, installation and maintenance company.

The business grew and in 2010 after a complete landscape remodeling job the owners asked, after the installation was complete, “what can be done with our ugly concrete?” I didn’t have an answer for them. That very evening is when I started in the coatings business. In the years since it has been our main focus to educate everyone that is considering remodeling the exterior of their home or business is to look at the whole picture of their property. In 2018 TNT Shield LLC partnered with The Concrete Protector as the supplier and technical support company for all our coatings. We made this change because The Concrete Protector materials and training courses are the best on the market.

I am Nick Nichols, a retired US Air Force veteran and our co-manager, Blake Hicks, is a US Marine veteran and between us we have over 28 years experience in the coatings and landscape remodeling business.

In this time we have adopted the motto of “We will take care of your property as if it were our own.”
and with this in mind we have grown TNT Shield LLC into a company that has done custom coatings, installation of concrete patios, walkways, and driveways, retaining walls, decks, and pergolas throughout Eastern Tennessee and Kentucky.

Give us a call and let our experienced crew show you what it is like to have a company take care of your property as if were our own.
