Easy listening

I like to listen but it drives me crazy that they play the same calls (literally the same call) on different podcast episodes.

Repetitious content

Practically every episode answers a call about a wet basement and the answer is always about gutters and drainage. LOTS of sponsor plugs.

Needs Improvement.

There is potential for a great show here, when there actually is content being delivered. There are way too many ads relative to the amount of actual commentary. Between the ads and the intro jingle that plays constantly, there is very little actual content. I also wish that the hosts would disclose when they are recommending a sponsor’s product. I believe that’s important for credibility.

Good info need to fast forward

I love the info you provide but hate that you have to answer the same mold and mildew, drainage and basement questions. Everyone must understand that commercials pay the bills and I find the info occasionally useful

Decent

Good show. Well put together. A lot of product advertisement but a lot of substance as well. On the most recent episode they recommend Rust-oleum's "Restore" deck paint, which is the worst product on the market as many people are aware (look it up). Instead, I'd recommend SW's "SuperDeck." Good show. Leslie's voice is hot too.

Good for what it is

Pretty lame if you ask me. The only thing that makes this show even worth the time of day is Leslie Segrete. She is FINE. The show is just paid advertising disguised as a home improvement show. They push a lot of products that are terrible and unproven. Example: Easy Water. This thing is a salt-free water softener. There are reviews all over the place attesting to the fact that this piece of junk does NOT work. It doesn't remove any minerals and it doesn't make the water feel any different. It's just a piece of crap that's not proven and relies solely on hype and shows like these. Another example is lumber liquidators. They push the hell out of this company, as they do with Trex Decking. Look them up and decide for yourselves. You can listen to the show all you want but you're not going to learn anything at all.
