Sometimes, it's the little things that transform a room—a vase of flowers here, an inconspicuous duck blind there—but other times, something more drastic is necessary. That's where Ultimate Stone comes in. Their technicians upgrade kitchens, bathrooms, and even office spaces with surfaces of sleek natural or engineered stone. Besides elegant countertops and vanities, the craftspeople provide tiling services for floors and walls, and are available for maintenance and repairs should any of the tiles gain sentience and escape during the night.
The experienced cleaning crew at Appolo Window Washing spruces up the windows of more than 3,000 residences per year. With that much practice, the team has the process down to a science. The team members slough off deposits and minerals with blades before soaping and then swiping their squeegees across glass, leaving a streak-free shine. The team also looks after carpets by wearing protective booties inside homes and protects siding from scratches by fitting its ladders with protective pads.
MultiStone Countertops garbs kitchens in a wide selection of speckled stones. With today's Groupon, homeowners can invite their knowledgeable staff into homes to ask questions about each mineral's durability, color, and mouthfeel. Adopt 30 square feet of level-one granite ($35–$45/sq. ft.) or 55 square feet of rare level-three granite to cap a mid-size kitchen's cabinetry with complexly colored swirls ($2,200 with installation). Marble or Zodiaq and Caesarstone quartz are also available and usually take under a week to complete a job from measurement to installation. After installation, all countertops are topped with Stain-Pro of sealant to protect them against grease, grubbiness, and late night pig-outs.
A herd of cows is the perfect way to furnish a pasture, but, despite its name, Sell a Cow focuses more on furnishing home interiors.
