The licensed and insured technicians from DXM Integrated Solutions wire homes with high-tech gadgetry such as full home audio/video systems, keyless entry, and lighting systems.

By suggesting simple ways to improve energy efficiency at home, Euro-Tech's level-one residential-energy audit can shave up to 30% off bloated energy bills. During an audit, a well-trained energy doctor will examine the amount of energy a home consumes versus the cost of that energy. Then, within one week, auditors will reveal their recommendations in 15- to 25-page reports stuffed with suggested energy-saving stratagems, such as using energy-efficient light bulbs, caulking or replacing windows, adding attic insulation, or handcuffing radiators so their heat waves can't escape.
Husband-and-wife team Molly and Kerry Lovell fortify homes’ structures and beautify their exteriors with services honed by more than 25 years of industry experience. The duo’s passion for maintaining homesteads extends to the study of repairing and installing plumbing, fixing electrical systems, woodworking, and constructing undetectable swiveling bookcases. Together with a hand-selected roster of tradespeople—including Molly’s brother, a master tile setter of 30 years—the Lovells venture into homes and battle disrepair. The fully insured and licensed team of wood, fabric, and metal manipulators travels from home to home strengthening pipework and paint jobs after drafting a free estimate whenever possible. Homeowners seem satisfied, since the company was voted one of 2012's and 2013's Best Handyman Services by Northwest Herald readers.
About two weeks after the paint is dry, someone from CertaPro Painters of Lake County calls the freshly hued home to make sure the paint job is still up to snuff. This method of checking in with customers is part of the staff's style; its specialists believe in communication and respect, and want to make sure that their painting services are completed as expected. And to prove their confidence in their work, they back their work with a two-year warranty.
Galaxie Home Remodeling’s professional pane installers equip walls with well-insulated seeing-holes. Fusion-welded windows come with two panes that tilt in for easy cleaning, and a half-screen lets in fresh spring breezes and the musical laughter of neighboring gargoyles. Low-E glass filters out excess sunshine in summer, and argon-gas filling insulates indoor air from winter cold, reducing utility bills year-round so homeowners can save up for hot-dog toaster ovens advertised in SkyMall. The window’s Energy Star certification also qualifies some homeowners for a tax credit. Galaxie Home Remodeling offers additional discounts on orders of four or more windows.
