We used to do concrete services for homeowners. We found our clients mostly via Homeadvisor. As usual, its a numbers game, but they charge for each lead they send you. Generally the numbers were against us. Each lead was $60, and to compete locally we had to keep prices on the low end.
For $60 we mostly found that homeowners were just trying to find out what it "might" cost to have some work done. We rarely had good leads. Homeadvisor doesn't explain to the Homeowner or "requestor" that the contractor will get charged if they submit a request. So we had a lot of leads that were a large waste of time.
We ended using their service. We had a 4.5 star rating...and still really didn't recoup the loss of $ per lead.
