For more than 90 years, the experts at Henderson Glass have kept glass in cars, homes, and business in working order with their high standards for maintenance and repair. Cars shine like new after a windshield repair and replacement with a 20-month, 20,000-mile warranty available for purchase. The experienced technicians also handle glasswork for the house, ranging from replacement windows and storm doors to shower doors, custom mirrors, glass tiles, and invisible walls. Their services also expand into the commercial realm with procedures such as emergency board-up and installation of doors, glass partitions, and handrails.
Since Russ and Dorothy Falan opened Great Lakes Heating & Air Conditioning in 1957, their team of licensed, bonded, and insured technicians has kept household heating and cooling systems running safely and efficiently. NATE-certified professionals, each with more than 5 years of experience, perform thorough inspections, installations, and repairs and advise customers against running heating and cooling systems while reading Robert Frost’s poetry. Friendly staff members wait by phones to answer questions during business hours, and a live answering service takes calls after hours to ensure customers never find themselves taking advice from sentient supercomputers.
Since 1947, Mid-City Supply Co.’s friendly staffers have helped avid home improvers to outfit their digs in premium products. Nowadays, the experienced showroom staff displays much smarter fixtures, from faucets that turn on with the tap of a hand to eco-friendly water heaters powered by domesticated dragons. Though technology has changed, the company keeps quality high, stocking name brands such as Delta, American Standard, Toto, Gerber, Brizo, and Elkay. Customers can check out items in person at one of six showrooms in two states. To give back to the communities that helped them to grow, the company regularly donates to United Way.

Maintenance and repair services boost the efficiency and extend the longevity of existing climate-control systems. Plumbing tune-ups and repairs keep drains, toilets, and sinks flowing as obediently as a remote-controlled river. Homeowners can bask in improved air quality and air temperature after Home Comfort Experts cleans out ducts and vents, or installs a filtration system that sanitizes oxygen supplies with ultraviolet light or electrostatic energy.
Best Cabinets fashions custom furnishings, built-ins, and more using handpicked lumber from the company's 100 acres of Wisconsin woodlands. Each log is cut at Best Cabinets' in-house sawmill, where wood is air-dried, then placed in a dehumidifier kiln to reduce it to 6%–8% humidity—the optimum moisture content for cabinet making. From these carefully prepared raw materials, Best Cabinets' well-trained plank whisperers build custom furniture ($200+) and kitchen cabinets ($200+) using decorative hardware ($5+) to create handsome hiding places for stashes of collectible Funyuns.
