We believe that anyone referring to this website for guidance in selecting a professional contractor would benefit from learning of our negative experience with Todd Thompson Contracting. We hired Todd Thompson on July 5th/08 to replace our soffits, fascia, and eavestroughs (in London, ON). Foolishly we paid him a great deal of money that day (supposedly to cover all materials) and, after a token day's work, we never saw him or our money again. Our house was left stripped of eavestroughs, some soffits, and fascia for the remainder of the summer. Repeated efforts to contact Todd Thompson by phone and e-mail were ignored. In September we finally hired a trustworthy contractor to work on our project and he did a wonderful job. Now we are in the process of taking legal action to recover our money which, incredibly, Todd Thompson feels he deserves to keep. Spare yourself the anxiety and pain of being scammed and don't make the same mistake we did of trusting this man who, contrary to his ad on this website, does not possess one ounce of integrity.
Response from Todd Thompson Contracting
This is a very demeaning and false statement by Tom Chrones of London,Ontario.This project was hampered by Tom and his assertiveness to have further time and labour added to my original quote and agreed upon amount by him NOT fulfilling his requirement of cleaning his original wood soffits clean of ivy and various other growth,tree and shrub removal around the east side of home so we could access and recover the existing soffit with vinyl.The front,rear,and driveway side of this house was completed with soffit and facia,the only side left was to be cleaned for us,so as not to incurr further cost to home owner.WE discussed this!,After 2 failed trips back to london,ontario to his residence and answering his repeated emails and phonecalls,he did say the cleaning was complete,on the 3rd visit to his home,I took more pics to show the cleaning was still not done.I gave up.All material was left on site to finish the unfinished side of home,In excess of an extra square of soffit with and J trim.May i also add the round trip to his address was over 340 kms each time with no recourse to collect the expense,travel time and the missed work in the 3.5 hrs each failed trip,3 trips in total
Tom did not pay any where close to the agreed amount.In actual reality he still owes over 1000.00 plus taxes.He has taken this route because he is a coward and likes computer games.I am a licensed Contractor,check with BBB,No problems since TOM CHRONES.I will not be forced to do more work then what is agreed on.This issue was discussed on all 3 days while working on his home,not a token of days work,he chose to try to screw me over with forcefull tactics and to date have not received and or been taken to court.Why... because he knows i have the pics,time,dated and stamped.I also have a folder saved with all emails and replys as well as documented Phone calls,every action he has made to contact myself has been replied too...every one!!I have not taken action against Tom Chrones as of yet but i see by his own action here on this site and the difermation that he has openly and voluntarily created with profile views on my account (658)The damage he may have created is going to be costly for both of us but i may have no other option to put a stop to HIS madness.
I appologize to anybody reading this trash talk and hope that you have a great experience with whom you choose as your contractor as we are not what some people make us out to be.When you have an agreement and or contract,there will always be variances,discuss them openly with your contractor,Not try to force unwanted will against them and pout in public forums. One has to wonder WHY he has to pull contractors from other cities and from a free website (KIJJII)when he has at his disposal over 500 contractors within his city limits....I would hope no other contractor has to deal with him,the family harassment of contacting my siblings and his public forum games from his universities computer.Tax dollars at work..This is such a case....
Grow up Tom and do as you please or feel your entitled to do,I await your actions.....exparte!
