    Handyman Matters of Clear Lake
    They came out and did an estimate for no charge. ��Other places I contacted expected me to take all the measurements and then e-mail pictures from every angle. ��The service was scheduled promptly. ��Craig, the man they sent to do the job was punctual and a pleasure to be around. ��Furthermore, he did a great job. ��There was one thing that wasn't perfect so he came back on a later date with no additional charge and finished the job to perfection. ��We were very happy with the job done and will definitely use them again if we should need a handyman.

    Robert arrived on time and went the repairs I wanted done.  The door from my garage into the family room was damaged and would not close or lock properly.  I also was having a problem with one of the toilets not flushing correctly, I thought the flapper wasn't making a good seal and sometimes the toilet would continue to run.  He provided pricing for the repairs.
    Robert asked exactly what type of replacement door I wanted.  We discussed several options.  He went to 2 stores before he found the correct door.  He contacted me by phone twice to make sure I approved before purchasing the door.  He returned with the door and installed it.  He was very particular about the way it was hung and the installation of the trim around the door.  He was able to re-use the door knob and dead bolt locks from the damaged door so that was saved me a little money.  The door looks great and locks smoothly.
    He also replaced the flapper on the toilet and that did take care of the problem.
    Robert was very polite and professional.  The price he quoted at the beginning of the job was exact and I am very pleased with his service.

    C & K Painting
    Any time I would complain to Corbett Thompson I would be lied to, given guilt trips, told it was all my fault...  The few times he claimed to take responsibility he would then turn around hours later and claim it was all my fault again.  As if I was the one performing all of the shoddy work in my home!!  At one point he planned to commit insurance fraud to try to recover the funds to fix my home and I have the emails from him to prove it.  (These emails are shown on my website, along with all of his other badly written emails calling me names, lying to me, changing his own story from day to day...)  This was when he finally told me that he was not insured to contract out other companies or to perform any work that was not paint related. Did I mention that his crew left several of my expensive items in the sun room, despite my written instructions that they move them since we knew rain was due that day?  Guitars, a vintage amp, family photos.... all left in the room that took on over 30 gallons of water in 2-3 hours.  Thanks guys! He also claimed we did a final walk through in a certified letter dated May 15, 2011.  The last day he was in my home was May 12, 2011 when my sun room was flooded with rain.  Yet, his certified letter states a walk through was done in my home and signed off on May 13, 2011.  This is another lie.  I have emails between Corbett Thompson and myself from May 12-14 discussing the walk through that was scheduled on May 16, 2011.  In this certified letter he had the audacity to ask for the balance we still owe him!!  My house is in a shambles and he wants more money... That's rich!! I have since sent him a certified letter of my intent to sue both him and his brother. Beware!  He bid on jobs he is NOT insured to perform, planned to commit insurance fraud to get himself out of it, he lied to me and cheated me every chance he could and has left my house a total wreck.  I have since had to pay another roofer over $2000.00 to take off the crap they called a roof and put a real one on my sun room and I will have to pay another company to redo the rest of the work I hired C&K painting to do wasting thousands of more dollars.

    His rebuttal would be funny if my house and pocketbook were not suffering.  The work on the interior was not completed nor a document ever signed that it was.  If it had been, why was he scheduling the final walk through with me from May 12-14 via emails which was set for May 16?  His letter claims it was done on May 13.  More lies.

    Yes, the pictures you see show the work that they did.  I will also be uploading a video soon that will show you a complete walk through of what I was left with after this company mangled my home.  You will be able to judge for yourself.

    He claims the main reason I was upset was because he referred a roofing contractor to me that did a bad job.  That is only partially right.  He used another contractor WITHOUT MY CONSENT OR KNOWLEDGE that then did a bad job.  For all I know he used two other companies WITHOUT MY CONSENT since I still do not know about the carpet installer.  I was not allowed to research their companies, I have no clue if they have insurance, I was completely mislead to believe they worked for Corbett Thompson until the roof job went badly.  I am also upset that he left my interior in a shambles, that he has lied repeatedly to me about many items (again I can prove this with his own emails) and that he has not taken any responsibility for the damage he has caused me and my home.

    He claims he offered me a refund.  Again, that is mostly untrue.  I offered a deal to him that if he gave me my money back I would release him from further responsibility.  He went for the idea, but then became enraged when I asked to be allowed to secure another roofer before we put our deal in writing.  (once again, I have emails to prove all of this.)  The next thing I knew he was sending me a contract my mother signed with the roofer (i am the home owner, not my mother!) and claimed he had nothing more to say to me.  He never offered me a check.

    Yes, I would not allow the roofer to come back on my property.  Once I saw how horrible the job was, and after Corbett himself and his crew all stated that pretty much everything about the roof was a disaster, would you want that person back to your home?  Plus, he had already stood me up when I called about one repair and then lied and claimed he returned calls that he did not return when I called about a second issue.  Oh!  And, Corbett told me about the horrible work he had done prior to the work at my home.  Who would allow someone like that back? 

    No, I did not want him to replace the structure of the roof.  HE suggested that plan and then he took that plan back off of the table once he found out how much it would cost him.  I never felt that was necessary to fix the problem.  The bottom line is that neither Corbett nor his brother had any business even bidding on my sun room's roof because they did not understand how they are designed.  They were trying to apply composition roofing principles to a nearly flat metal roof and that does not work.  Once the proper materials were installed on my existing frame by a company that knows what they are doing, everything was fine.  There is not meant to be much pitch because the proper metal is designed to not need much pitch .  Corbett was also the one that first said he needed to add extra framework to try to make the crappy roof his brother put on more workable.  Again, a proper roofing job done by a proper company with the proper materials required no extra framework whatsoever.

    He claims I became rude with him.  I never raised my voice and I never called him names, I remained professional.  Well, ok.. I must admit that my last email was sarcastic....  But, it was still professional.  Here is what it said:

    Mr. Thompson,
    Thank you for your letter that I received by certified mail today.  It made me laugh.  It was the first good laugh I have had in days.  You claimed (lied) that we had done the final walk through on the last day Robert was here.  Is he willing to testify to that in a court of law knowing what the punishment for perjury is?  Amazingly, I have emails from you after the last day your people were here where YOU are discussing scheduling the final walk through.  Your letter today, along with ALL of your emails and the pictures of your company's work will be posted on the website I am creating detailing my experiences with you.  I also appreciate that fact that you have now placed a lie on your "company" letterhead as further evidence of your deceitful trade practices for my lawsuit.  You are making this very easy for me.  Thank you!!

    By the way, that was a lovely article I found online about how you cheated a past "partner" in your company.  I will be sure to link that to my website as well.  I will send you the link to the website once I have had the chance to blast everyone I know with the link and they have had a chance to comment.  I am certain you would like to see what the general public thinks of your work and your general business practices.

    I was also thinking about making a sign for my yard to show passersby your work as well.  One that shows some pictures of uneven seam lines, paint spills, uneven sheet rock putty, vents hanging out of the ceiling along with you and your company's name.  I have a very large yard that can accommodate a huge sign and a friend that works at a sign company.  :)  I thought that would be a nice touch. You said you thought I was "an evil person" before... You have not seen anything yet.  I was being kind and gracious then as I was desperately trying to work with you to make all of your wrongs right.  Now, the gloves are off.  I will do everything within my legal rights to make as many people aware of what has happened with you and your company.  Hmm.. I wonder how much it costs to take out an ad in the Chronicle and the Greensheet showing a couple of pictures of your work...

    Thanks for the giggle,

    Meanwhile, here is an example of him writing to me:
    Suzie,   I have proof that you and your mother have lied about my brother and my crew,you agreed on one thing then you turn around and lie about it. I look forward to this maybe you will not lie under oath,you and your mother haver lied since day one.I have tried many times in pleasing you but you are not the type of person that can work things out.You put your emotions into this by crying and yelling at me and my crew.Go ahead sue me.Contact both the BBB ang Angie;s list the good thing about both these companies I get my say in all this.They will print my story as well as yours I have an A plus rating only one complaint from a crazy lieing woman. Give your attorney my number I am sure I can work with him,as long as he is not crazy as you.By the way there was not one thing wrong with the Interior and you know it.When I told you I would write a contract to finish the roof cover and wanted to itemize how many pieces I was to install, we verbally agreed on three,I have this on tape.Now you send a e-mail to leave that area blank so you can fill it out to your liking.You never heard Craig say anything bad or smelt alchol on his breath this is what your Mother said,Idid not even see the pictures of the water coming through not only the tarp I installed or the patio cover.I know you are lieing just like your mother.There are some people in this world that like to stir the pot and you are one of them.Robert and Marco both told me you are the worst customer that we have EVER had.I agree,so go ahead get your attorney get your letters together so will I .You do not scare me one bit.See you in court.Remember you have to tell the TRUTH you will be under oath.

    He has it on tape?  Interesting.  Then why did he not install them?!?!  He installed nothing that day except caulk and screws on May 12.  I have no doubt that i will win in court.
