Lumpy couches, broken ovens, outdated computers, piles of rubble, and stacks of "Dewey Defeats Truman" newspapers—the pros at Junk It RVA can quickly and safely remove such detritus from homes, offices, and construction sites. In fact, it was in construction sites where Junk It RVA found its start. Company president Chris Masterson combined his experience working with heavy machinery with his frustrations when other junk-removal companies let him down. Using his own complaints about those companies as a foundation on how not to run his business, Chris operates Junk It RVA with special attention on customer satisfaction. For starters, he stays local so service is fast. He also prices removal by the load—which includes breaking up the item, dumping fees, travel time, and site cleanup—so customers know exactly what they'll pay ahead of time.
Buff & Coat's floor technicians save homeowners and businesses time and money by revitalizing their floors without resorting to sanding. After buffing floors to remove surface scuffs and scratches, technicians apply a durable, odorless, and eco-friendly finish and then layer on a protective coat. Homeowners select their desired finish for the protective coating from matte, satin, semigloss, or gloss, and it also blocks UV rays that can damage floors. Unlike the building of Rome or Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the process can be completed in a single day.
Summer Classics was founded in 1973 as a manufacturer of plastic umbrella bases. After the breezy craze of umbrella disco died out, the company branched out into designing and building its own line of home furnishings. Summer Classics produces high-quality products that are largely customizable via a variety of color and fabric options. Its large inventory selection includes posterior-supporting Palm collection side chairs ($477 each for frame, cushions $83–$168), and piña-colada-supporting Ocean Grande collection end tables ($496). No back porch is complete without a sturdy armchair in which to read the daily paper and lecture your sprinkler system, such as the Plaza collection arm chair ($379 for frame, cushions $70–$140). Cushion a planned fall with a set of Aqua collection large throw pillows ($97–$196 each), or opt for a smaller decorative throw in a color such as mango or blue bell ($107–$252 each). The friendly and helpful staff at Summer Classics is on hand to answer any questions you may have about fabric trims or weather patterns.
