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 tidiness technicians at Design Unlimited Painting scrub homes with high-pressure washers that powerfully massage away grime and grit to leave siding and trim sparkling. Dwellings can cast off their soiled shells and slip into the more comfortable surroundings of a freshly scoured, like-new carapace, just in time for the bungalow beauty pageant on May 14. Every employee at Design Unlimited Painting has at least 15 years of experience cleaning up after nature’s thunder parties, snow fetes, and sun-baked mud-pie feasts, and the expert abode-bathers happily don all-white garb to tackle every style of domicile, from Victorian painted ladies to modest ranches. Siding, stonework, and decks all benefit from the mold- and dirt-dethroning work of dynamically pressurized water, emerging as pristine as the day of their ceremonial ribbon cutting.
The certified colon hydrotherapists at LifeCleanse of Anoka clear biological pathways and promote optimal health with FDA-approved colon-hydrotherapy treatments. During the initial two-hour session, expert body plumbers explain the process and usher clients into private therapy rooms, where they lie on their backs as warm water clears colons of waste and abandoned campsites left by swallowed gummy bears. A disposable, single-use nozzle inserts into digestive tracts, and patients can opt to have therapists stimulate the abdomen with or without oils. The streams of filtered aqua approximate the effects of a healthy bowel movement, helping dislodge toxins from the body's inner confines and promoting increased energy as well as overall well-being. The virtually painless procedure typically requires no downtime. LifeCleanse recommends a series of 60-minute follow-up sessions to keep digestive systems running smoother than a racehorse after a fresh coat of turtle wax.
The crackle of Fireside Hearth & Home's fireplaces have filled the soundscapes of households across the country for more than 60 years. Today, their well-stocked showrooms feature a variety of advanced gas, electric, and wood-burning models from top designers such as Quadra-Fire, Heat & Glo, and Heatilator.

Common phrases, from “pounding the pavement” to “hitting the road,” point to how roughly humans treat their beloved, supportive asphalt. In response, the technicians at Suburban Sealcoat challenge this norm, administering services that protect and rehabilitate any sturdy, blackened surface. With a 6% SS-polymer-blend additive in their sealant, they safeguard pavement against dangers ranging from environmental wear and tear to cars with weak bladders. They also eradicate cracks with a hot-rubber filler heated to a sizzling 400 degrees. And when the techs aren't treating, cleaning, or patching up asphalt, they can be found re-striping parking lots, clearly delineating spaces to prevent cars from parking inside of each other.
Many things in water are completely invisible: heavy metals, minerals, the ghosts of popped bubbles. The team at Water Doctors Water Treatment can test for those and other imperceptible contaminants. Then, technicians and engineers help get rid of them with water filtration system options. Depending on the client's needs, a reverse osmosis system or a large-tank water filtration system might be the best call.
