Duane West's stake in his construction business is more than just ownership, it's an investment in his hometown of Salem. The three R's in his business's name encompass a holistic approach to household maintenance, calling for repairs, remodeling, and remediation, or the destruction of harmful mold and fungus, to ensure structural soundness. His team's multidisciplinary approach covers stonework, woodwork, demolition, construction, and nearly any other service that could turn a house into a home or a fallout shelter into a walk-in closet.
Handyman Matters’ multitalented craftsmen can strengthen a property's aesthetic value and fix maintenance issues with an arsenal of home-improvement projects. The prompt, experienced handypersons can add a touch of timber to porches and decks with exterior carpentry or frame the features of a room with planks of crown molding. Inside enclosed living areas, wall whisperers match up the texture of existing drywall before patching holes caused by too much indoor brick throwing. Painting and staining projects are made accurate with the added measures of checking siding, window casing, flashing, and caulking before painters saturate walls, exteriors, or decks with a new coat of color. Weatherproofing windows and siding banishes inclement weather from cozy interiors, just as adjusting dead bolts or installing perimeter fencing banishes lonely meteorologists from crashing family game night. Customers are welcome to supply their own materials for each Handyman Project, all of which are backed by a one-year labor warranty.
Forest Landscape Nursery stretches across 11 acres of scenic countryside, protected by an elite squad of grizzled squirrels. The family-owned nursery cares for and sells a wide range of local and exotic trees, plants, shrubs, and ornamental grasses.
Owner Michael Roloff pairs his decades of construction experience with business partner Nathalie Pillsbury’s engineering and design prowess to execute stylish building projects with a careful attention to aesthetic detail. Building teams regularly synchronize and coordinate scheduling with architects and suppliers and foster long-term relationships with trusted subcontractors to complete such projects as tiled bathrooms and cherry-wood kitchen cabinets. Past masterpieces from Roloff’s handiwork include architecturally consistent garage and porch expansions and an Old World–style wine cellar with a hidden door that opens when you say “oenophilia” correctly five times fast. In addition to renovating existing spaces and repairing leaky sinks, drafty windows, and sticking doors, the talented crew at Roloff Construction wills into existence tasteful modern additions to sunrooms.
