Reared by a loving family of owner-operators since 1937, Berger Hardware rolls out labyrinthine aisles of home and garden products. Under the umbrella of the nationwide True Value franchise, the shop stocks and replenishes a vast array of standard inventory, seasonal items, and literal nuts and bolts. Knowledgeable staffers draw on their personal tool-wrangling experience to dispense expert advice and connect customers with their ideal equipment.
They call themselves “Hardwarians.” The employees of Feinsod Hardware, a True Value store, know the ins and outs of home improvement and can lead customers to the best tools for any do-it-yourself project. Shelves stock everything from power tools by Master Mechanic and DeWalt to ready-made accessories for grills, cars, and even pets, plus all the hardware accoutrements for doors, cabinets, and gingerbread houses. The Hardwarians also offer services, including key cutting, knife sharpening and grill servicing.
The coaches at Peekskill Fencing Center are living evidence fencing involves far more than lucky lunges. Some have competed at the national level, and two have spent years coaching teams—Cal Schlick, for example, taught at the U.S. Naval Academy, and has medaled in several tournaments. Applying their skills and experience, the instructors lead lessons for all ages and experience levels.
Classes cover beginner and intermediate techniques with the foil, as well as the Japanese art of Kendo and sessions on competitive play. Peekskill Fencing Center delivers personal attention to all of its students and ensures that no one's sword has the same nickname. Pupils can also schedule private classes to receive even more thorough feedback on their technique. Students of all skill levels strive to sharpen their focus, footwork, agility, and balance with each practice. And, for the opportunity to see a professional sparring demonstration, they can even plan a birthday party through the center.
The licensed contractors at Segelman Shaw Roofing, Siding & Gutters handle the fa?ade needs of all residential and commercial buildings. They fearlessly ascend ladders to inspect roofs for proper ventilation and signs of damage, such as busted shingles, defective drainage systems, or graffiti complaints from Santa about last year?s cookies. They inspect and repair rain gutters atop homes and condos, ensuring water drains correctly from the downspout and preventing clogs with gutter guards. Buildings receive a facelift with brand new aluminum, vinyl, and HardiePlank siding made of fireproof fiber cement, while energy-efficient windows and solar panels help decrease monthly electric bills. The Segelman crew also tackles entire exterior-renovation projects, from window wrapping to custom shutter and trim design.
Benjamin Moore recoats domicile walls with 3,000 colors mixed into chemically calibrated interior and exterior paints. Seaweed green lends earthy tones to rooms and a welcoming aura for visiting beluga whales when mixed into a gallon of the environmentally safe Natura interior paint ($52.99+). Regal Select interior paint gallons are available in finishes ranging from flat to glossy and imbue colors finely tuned amounts of glimmer and sheen ($48.99+), and petite pints of paint ($6.49) allow customers to see what a portion of a wall or half of a friend looks like in vibrant new tones. In-store experts assist with supply purchasing and project completion and happily mix buckets of Benjamin Moore colors to order.
When the company's dedicated painting crews travel to residential and commercial locations, they treat each building with respect and do their best to depart without leaving evidence of their visit. Before working on interior painting projects, they carefully move furniture and accessories to the center of the room and cover the floors with drop cloths. After making minor repairs to the walls and ceilings, they evenly apply fresh coats of paint to brighten the scene. For exterior projects, they clean surfaces by hand or with a power washer before painting them in the client's choice of color. They also perform meticulous cleanups at the end of each day, until they finish the project. The company's color experts can meet with clients to make color recommendations that would suit the building's style and surroundings.
