Wow I just know where to begin, I was being very generous with my review not going into extreme details as to not make Thomas look worse then he is but unfortunately I have been put in position to explain the whole situation. On numerous times Thomas was late, didn’t show or would use excuses blaming his father and step mother as to not having transportation , on many occasions he would b using said excuses at 5,6,7:00 at night still saying he’s working on a ride when I have a family and refuse to stay up until 12-1:00 in the morning. He left garbage all out front of my house, drywall putty all over my fireplace, tv mount and floor and refused to clean up after him self. Job after job he would not finish and only come back to start the next one to get more cash. I have drywall that’s uneven , putty everywhere , unfinished trim, outlets hanging off my wall in my garage, 2 outlets he messed up and won’t work anymore.
My car sat out in an ice storm for a week when he would show or try to come at 6-7:00 at night and then have no transportation.
He constantly never had tools he needed whiny everyone stole from him or used him, he had to borrow staple guns, table saw etc from me to even do the job. He would show up with ppl I was uncomfortable with being in my home, one women looked in her 60’s and homeless and he used excuse she was there to clean but I found he sitting on my chair in my basement watching him and when I questioned him he used excuses she broke her hand or can’t do this or that. One him at 20:30 at night he came back to my house with 2 ppl uninvited in my garage and I found them all smoking. My kid has allergy to cigarettes and he just had zero respect. He would numerous times text me he was finished and not b just to get money. Numerous times he would message me on weekends begging for 50$-60$ , good luck figuring out why he was so desperate for that on a weekend eh????!!!.
I felt so bad from all his whining and complaining about his step mother screwing him over for transportation I gave him a ride at 10-11:00 at night , horrible person I am though lol. Even gave the guy a tv for free and sold another one to him cheap. And in the end he lies messaging me he’s finished everything to get money and disappear . When I find out it wasn’t finished and question him he lies and says everything was a freebie job for it lmao. The guy got so much money and did a half baked job. Not to include the constant swearing my kids heard from him in the basement and on one occasion vulgar music. I wouldn’t recommend him to fix anything ever. Be very careful
I'm sorry that you feel the need to lie about this job and my work. You hired me to frame in an old doorway and relocate it. After Completing that job you also hired me to gut your basement walls, insulate, move a few plugs and re-drywall after that project was completed you hired me to install a TV mount in the ceiling. Which also was completed . . Then you hired me to put drywall up in your garage, no heat and a very expensive car blocking my way to work on one side then the other was a 4x4 blocking my work area ....
I offered to help you to paint and install trim free of charge I also relocated your TV mount after you got a different TV that I also did for free ..... Telling the world a lies about not finishing my work, not showing after being paid, is outright a lie... first day I received money from you I returned the next day and hadn't even spent $5.00 of it yet and you gave me more which I didn't ask for ..... only once did I not return that was due to my mother passing away which you felt I lied about .... the only work not finished is work that I wasn't paid to do .... your trim and relocation of your TV mount that needs a bit of sanding where I replaced with drywall.... How dare you sit and lie to the world about my hard work and stuck in the freezing cold to drywall a garage and didn't even offer me to come in to warm up ... so nice of you ....... you sir I must say were my worst customer working for. I won't return to finish your free work which I offered my help doing . That doesn't give you the right to slander my name .... less then $2,000 I charged you for jobs that easily could've been closer to $6,000 ... My personal opinion sir is you were very ungrateful for the services which you wanted done much faster then could actually be for only 1 person doing the work.......
NOTICED how you forgot to mention that the work completed turned out without any issues or seems. Accept for an overseen area which was dark which I fixed without any argument
HAVE A GOOD DAY SIR
Beware of this contractor.
We gave this contractor deposit money for a job. He immediately "lost" the money. He promised to pay it back and never did. We took him to small claims court and won a judgement against him.
When he showed up late for the quote due to car trouble I should have know to say no thanks. He would not show up to work, kept asking for more money after we agreed on a price and deposit. He would not answer my calls to find out if he was coming. I tried everything in my power to keep him working, even bought him tools because the ones he had he said were no good. Gave him one last chance to show up next morning. He didn’t. I fired him and couldn’t even get him to come pick up his tools. My basements a mess, mud on everything from doors to walls to bathroom tile. I have spent hours cleaning my floor. Corner bead has to be replaced. The job is not half done and he wants full payment. I would recommend finding someone else to do the job.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any other info before hiring Tom.
On the last night at my house I had to give him $20 for gas because he didn’t know if he had enough to make it home. I tried to drop his tools off for him and he wouldn’t even give me his address. I see now I’m not the only one with complaints. Should have checked his references.
Look Tom. I’m not going to get into it with you here. I will be very happy to let a judge decide. I feel bad that you think the world is out to get you. You were a week past due and not 50% done. It is not my responsibility to pay your helpers after I gave you $1000 after $500 dollars was agreed on till job completion. I thought I hired just you. I will not bring up what your brother did in my basement our out front of my house while my young girls were outside. I did everything in my power to help you succeed. I am not going to be taken advantage of. I am a good person and the stress of you asking for more money every time you show up late,if at all, is gone. I will see you in court. All the best in your endeavors. I just don’t want anyone else to not understand what they are getting themselves into with you. You are out no money and I have paid you for the work completed. I paid for all the supplies for the job that you either damaged or wasted. I now have an unfinished messy basement with young kids for I don’t know how long because of you. I did not come to the decision of firing you lightly. If you continue to blame everyone else around you instead of showing up to work like you said the job would be done and you would have full payment. I will drop your tools off on Wednesday as you would not come to get them on the day I let you go for not showing up as promised. Contract broken multiple times by you. My schedule was never an issue. 2 weeks into what you said would be done in 1, 2 coat Tom. I wasted a better part of 7 days on you not showing up when you said and when you didn’t had to leave my house unlocked while I was out for appointments in hope that you would. Not how you run a professional business. I can’t say anymore Tom. Take care of yourself.

RESPONSE TO THE CUSTOMER BY TC DRYWALL & CONTRACTING
Sorry that your experience with TC Drywall & CONTRACTING wasn't to your standards as expected.
As a independent and new business owner I tried my best to do everything to ensure that my work is professionally completed. Hiring employees there will always be the good and the bad during the hiring stages. Insulting my company based on an employees mistake was not very thoughtful to my company's reputation. My work I can promise you was not done wrong as suggested in your review. I take to much pride in my work to do bad or unprofessional work . . My reliability was a bit unprofessional however I did show up everyday but the day my car broke down and you were notified. Your statement on the job taking 2 weeks is not cause of my actions. I told you 1 week of working days . Which is 7 days ..... based on your work schedule I wasn't able to consistently work. At day 6 of my days worked you fired me . SuggestING I took 2 weeks . That sir was not very honest. My financial situation was not very good at the time but doesn't mean that it's okay for you to bash my reputation because your financial situation is better then mine.... I've taken the steps I need to get paid for my work that wasn't paid as u suggest wasn't when in fact was .
Sorry that you were not satisfied with the dealing with my company
First off this guy wanted a cheque literally as soon as he sent my a quote before materials were even ordered. Then he wanted 1450$ in cash for "his time". FIRST OFF you never ask for cash and second he shows up to work in a Grand Am. Are you serious??. Him and his little fresh of the street buddy attempted to do vapor barrier that should have taken 2 days max took over 2 weeks and it was still not DONE!!. In the end i had to hire someone else to do the vapor barrier. Every time he came he always asked for money even thou he didn't do any work. At one point he refused to work because "Doesn't work around other people" FALSE He didn't work around my HVAC guy because he knew they would see him mess around all day and do casualty nothing. My Central vacuum Guy nearly kicked him off the site for being a nu sense and not doing any work whatsoever. He didn't even pay his board men for the work they did and deserve. They had to come to me to get payed for the garage because Thomas Courtney Drywall is a FRAUD and is the most useless piece of garage i have ever seen. HE promised he will be at the job site at 7:00 am. I was there at 6:00 am and he arrived at 10:30 am with a bucket of KFC chicken. When you confront him to do some actual work and stop delaying the job he screams at you. Talk about customer service he gives no regard for who's watching and who is talking to him. He gave us no contract and thinks that when you give some him money you all of a sudden have a legal contract with him and he threatens to take you to court even thou he has no money and is too lazy to do any work at all. Do not hire TC Drywall he is a fraud and a con artist. He wants your money and will refuse to do work.
Also i have evidence of him asking for 1450$. Which then I said ill only do 500$. I also did hire the board men to do the garage as I knew it would actually get done and i wouldn't have to wait months on end for the 5% of work he will do. I payed them because they are good and did a job well done. However, he has not payed them the money they deserve for the house. I also sent him the plan of the house so he would have all the code requirements he needed. He just can't read a plan. Hes been convicted of fraud before. I have and will continue to meet and talk with other contractors which you have also done FRAUD work. Thanks for the evidence your false BBB partnership which should really be CAA (Con Artist Association) your false advertising and scamming will soon come to a close once again. A letter from a legal executive was sent to Mr. Courtney asking to pay the workmen what they are OWED. If this is not done Mr. Courntey's con artist ways, false advertising and Illegal activity will be pursued with legal action. Thomas has also sent me MULTIPLE FRAUDULENT Legal documents claiming to be from a legitimate source of governing power. However, they are hand written by him as all of the have writing errors and look like they were written by a 6 year old. He even misspelled his own company name, I have reason to believe this was done on purpose as if he claims to be someone else, then he could try to fake his way out of a lawsuit, he has been evicted from his previous residence for not paying rent and trashing the place. In addition, I have uncovered that Thomas Courtney of TC Drywall & Contracting has a criminal history as he attended Acheron College which is a Federal Penitentiary in Kingston Ontario. He claims i have " Defamatory Comments and says he will sue me" Then why do 6+ other people share a strikingly similar story. Just goes to show hes trying all he can to silence the Con Artist TRUTH HE IS. He has not and WILL NOT sue as he is broke out for your cash take it from me. I will never do business with someone such as Thomas. DO NOT HIRE TC Drywall & Contracting, hes nothing but trouble. I would recommend Andy Doyons Drywall Services, they will do the work and for a fair price.
Sir Thomas has no idea how to construct as well as what a legal contract is. He has been caught lying and coning people in an attempt to cover up his illegal actions.
