Everytime I hear one of his crazy commericials, I want to scream. He says he is a dealer for the people. This is a used car dealer and I believe his specialty is getting everyone fiancied. What bothers me is that he can get you fiancied and then charge you a hefty documentation (paperwork fee) which is $300. This price is on top of the selling price for the vehicle.
Most dealers in Lawrence charge from 0-to around $200. Some dealers that charge from $100 to $200 are dealers that are full service and sell new cars. These dealers also have a very large overhead and numerous employees.
Around May of this year I hired McLaughlin to replace my roof that had hail damage. I felt his price was fair and they were prompt to start the job and finished in one day. I do feel he sub-contract the work to a group of hispanics from Topeka who are very hard working, honest and polite. The new roof they put on looked top notch and they spent a good amount of time making sure they picked up every nail and pieces of debri from the old roof.
With that being said I recommended McLaughlin Roofing to my brother-in-law around July. McLaughlin Roofing returned my brother-in-law phone call but never showed up the following week like he had said he would. My brother-in-law hired a different roofing company.
Around August I again recommended McLaughlin Roofing to a friend who lived out in the country. He needed a new roof on his house and barn. He hired McLaughlin Roofing and to my knowledge was pleased with their work. Around September I again recommended McLaughlin Roofing to a friend of my wifes. Last word I had was that she was still waiting for McLaughlin roofing to return her phone call she had left with their company.
After hearing that McLaughlin Roofing had failed to return her phone call, I decided to get involved and inquire why they have had such a difficulty in returning her phone call. Well it has been almost three weeks and I've called their anwering service twice and McLaughlin Roofing has yet to return my phone call. What concerns me now is that my new McLaughlin Roof on my house has a five year warranty with their company. What good is the warranty if the company won't return your phone call.
I've contacted one of their roofing suppliers to see if they have gone out of business. I was told they were still in business.
To hire this company would be a coin toss because they forgot about Customer Service.
