Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.

The Dirty Works team blitzes big, small, and reoccurring projects with multi-sided expertise while helping homeowners cross off line after line on their "To-Do" lists. The business, promising to be timely and professional no matter what the job, updates interior spaces to be safer and more organized, whether its staffers are repairing drywall, removing junk, or simply handling general repairs. That same know-how extends outdoors, as well, when Dirty Works is called upon to pressure-wash exterior surfaces or scoop gunk out of gutters. After parties, they're available for major cleanups, and around the holidays, they string lights from roofs and sweep any stray white whiskers out of chimneys.
