As the name suggests, the staff at No Streak Window Cleaning take great pains to ensure windows are perfectly clear by meticulously washing interior and exterior panes until they reach peak transparency. Staff members scrape and detail outside window surfaces, removing dirt, debris, and mathematical proofs scribed by calculus-obsessed blue jays. After slipping shoes into coverings to protect floors, window washers come inside to scrub interior glass, screens, sills, and window tracks. The entire process takes anywhere from two to four hours. Customers can upgrade to include windows with security bars, kitchen bay windows, skylights, or UFO observation domes.
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.
