In true family style, brothers Nick and Kirby Kuklenski own and operate two “sister” Ace Hardware stores in Colorado Springs, keeping local homes beautiful with name-brand products and services. Lawns grow thick and colorful with Scotts fertilizers, plants, and seeds from the shops’ lawn departments, whereas computerized color matching in the paint aisles keeps outsides as vibrantly hued as flowers in a garden or a house fly strolling across an artist’s palette. Collections of DeWalt and Craftsman hand and power tools help homeowners assemble Weber grills, with staffers standing at the ready to build any piece bought at the store. Even autos can get in on Ace Hardware’s helpful services: keys are cut onsite, with Sidewinder keys including built-in chips that interact with car computers to ensure proper starts without feeding vehicles buckets of floppy disks.
With more than three decades of painting experience, Mike Leverette is well versed in the pitfalls of painting services looking to cut corners. He and his screened team of full-time craftsmen coat interior walls with thick, full layers of name-brand paints, ensuring all traces of the walls’ former color and life as a billboard is covered with bold new hues. Mike and the team free up owners’ time by taking care of all the prep work, skillfully protecting carpeting and furniture before jobs.
With thousands of frame and mat samples, The Great Frame Up can satisfy any and all framing fantasies. The expert framespeople can make diplomas radiate (most diplomas can be framed for around $100–$200), personalized jerseys glisten (most for less than $300), and dorm-room movie posters sparkle (many 24" x 36" pieces are less than $100). The design wizards can also find a home for any prized possession, such as shoebox photos, baby booties, ticket stubs, medals, and really good pot roasts. The Great Frame Up’s no-hassle guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.
Kitchen Alley outfits cooks with all the necessary devices for conjuring culinary masterpieces at home. On entering the cozy, charming shop, customers are greeted by a cornucopia of gourmet cookware that spills its contents across tables, onto shelves and the hardwood floor, and up against the exposed-brick walls. Add class to an upcoming tea party with a ceramic teapot from Fox Run ($17.50) or employ a 1.75-inch Norpro mesh tea infuser ($2.48) to permeate herbal libations with your favorite flavors, such as chamomile, lemongrass, or bangers and mash. A Joyce Chen bamboo mixing spoon ($6.25) prevents lazy soups and sauces from resting on their laurels, and a garlic twist ($18) reduces the hassle of mincing garlic with its set of cross-cutting teeth.
The environmental elements that corrode asphalt driveways are many; sunlight, water, and rock salt are among the more common culprits. Thus, driveways endure an onslaught of damaging influences each day regardless of weather or plummeting grand pianos, which is why the staff at All Pro Asphalt believes that owners should take the recommended measures to both repair and protect their driveways. All Pro’s team of professional contractors is happy to accept this responsibility on behalf of their residential, commercial, and municipal clients every day, beating back these damaging influences with services such as seal coating, sealing up cracks, and patching. For each service, from parking lot stripe jobs to full paving, the team offers free estimates before getting started, so customers are happy with both the results and the bill.
