Under the direction of local operator Mike Moriarty, the crews of Never Paint Again - Houston Metro uphold a vision of transparency that goes back to Never Paint Again's roots as a neighborhood company in Detroit. Each interior, exterior, and maintenance paint job begins with a precision estimate that sets a clear, detailed work plan for both the homeowner and the painting team. Throughout the job, crews maintain an open line of communication with clients through daily check-ins and two paint cans connected by a string. They also favor high-quality sealants, primers, caulks, and coatings, such as Sherwin-Williams paints. When finished revivifying home surfaces, workers always wrap up their work with a thorough cleanup. Beyond applying paint, Never Paint Again's team helps clients coordinate a design scheme through color consultations and an online color visualizer.
The owner of Ultimate Radiant Barrier previously worked in the heating and air-conditioning business for 30 years. In that time, he saw utility bills continue to rise, and homeowners were unable to do anything to combat it. So, he decided to turn to science to solve the problem, concentrating on the area of the house that transfers the most temperature: the attic. He started making that space more energy efficient by lining it with sun-reflecting foil, which prevents the outside heat from creeping indoors, significantly reducing the cost of air conditioning during stifling Houston summers or slightly cooler, but still stifling Houston winters.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
