The paving experts from Missouri Brothers Asphalt mend weathered driveways by filling in cracks and matching each surface with a shiny new coat of asphalt sealant. After prepping the surface by cleaning off dirt and debris, the team covers splits and fissures caused by fickle temperatures or woozy shot-putters. Next, a technician sprays MacConnell and Associates MAC 52 sealer over the entire surface using a modern applicator from Panther Equipment. The sealant helps protect the surface from future damage and is backed up by a one-year guarantee, which provides a complimentary retouch of any damages to asphalt that weren't caused by snowplows. Missouri Brothers Asphalt can also repaint parking-lot stripes and markers.
Amax Maintenance beautifies homes inside and out. The team can target home exteriors, mowing lawns, laying mulch, and landscaping. Or they can perform full interior makeovers, removing trash, and executing a series of general repairs to get apartments ready for new renters. And just because something's invisible doesn't mean Amax's team can't handle it. Its workers can remove odors and evict bacteria from the air with quick, efficient ozone-generator treatments.
Clark's Tool & Equipment opened in the 1970s as a discount tool shop, but when Don Gamble took the helm, he swapped out the supply of inexpensive outlet supplies to feature quality, American-made tools. Since then, the single shop has blossomed into four retail stores and a 15,000-square-foot warehouse stocked with a full line of brands such as SK Hand Tools, Ingersoll Rand, and Eagle Industries. The emporium of tools is an authorized supplier to industry students and teachers with a strong clientele in the rail, trucking, and manufacturing sectors.
Clark's catalog of tools and accessories includes hand tools, electric tools, and abrasives that summon the steady hands and keen eyes of everyone from industrial veterans to DIY enthusiasts. Safety equipment, tool accessories, and compressors are available to round out every toolbox with the appropriate fixings. Expert technicians also sharpen dulled blades, saws, and gardening tools and bring damaged or broken power tools back to life with skilled repair services.

Stacy was working for a large corporation when she first painted a pink puffy heart on a piece of pottery and fell in love with the relaxing, fun pastime. After finally leaving the business world a few years later, she followed her creative instincts and opened The Painting Paw. Today, she encourages others to connect with their inner artists as they paint pottery and layer glass, creating fused pendants and sun catchers. The Painting Paw also invites guests to mold silver clay into shapes for personalized jewelry made of 99.9% silver. As budding artists set to work amid sunflower-yellow and cherry-red tables and awnings, well-trained staff members are always present to answer questions about how often to feed porcelain figurines.
