    Are you licensed and insured to be doing this work "on the side"? It sounds like your not if you are advertising to do it cheaper then anyone else around. How about you go and start a business and charge what you have to to make a profit after paying taxes and pulling permits..

    God help you that you dont burn someones house down in the interim..
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    I would have someone proofread your copy for spelling and grammatical errors. Another photo might be better; as previously mentioned, the bandage does not help you sell yourself as a professional. It's not even a professional bandage job.
