I don't know how good their services actually are, but I absolutely hate their commercials.


Every commercial follows this same format - "We're having a sale! Are you having <insert home trouble here>? My dad can help!" "That's right Alisha!" <information about their solution to the problem>, "starting at only <really low price> per month!".

The monthly price is always over the course of 10 years as well, and works out to well over what you borrowed (despite their "We'll save you a LOT of money!" claim).

For instance, this commercial says you can get a new roof, installed in one day (a ridiculous claim) starting at only $139 a month.

Fine print: $9,300 @ 13.00% APR 120 months

That's right - you borrow $9,300 for a new roof (which is a ridiculously large amount to begin with), then pay it back at a rate of $139 a month - for the next 10 years (which results in a total payment of $16,680 on a $9,300 loan).

Also, what's with the negative of the football player makeup she has on?
 
The white stripe of makeup under each eye.

They probably shingle over your old shingles and put a lien on your home for collateral.

Any typical home cannot be reroofed(properly) in 1 day even if they use 12 illegals.
