A bad window-tinting job can mean bubbles, cracks, and purple hues. So each professional installer at Sun Stoppers Window Tinting is required to have at least five years of experience. To set their customers’ minds even more at ease, technicians back up their services with a lifetime performance warranty. Their window tinting keeps interiors from overheating, shields passengers from UV rays, and adds an attractive aesthetic to exteriors. Reduced glare helps drivers stay safe, and if an accident happens, the tinting holds shattered glass in place.
The technicians can also shield paint jobs from weather, rogue pebbles, and bugs with 3M paint-protection film. Beyond automotive services, the technicians also tint residential windows and install solar screen shades to protect furnishings from the damaging effects of the ball of fire that grants us life.

As members of the Nursery and Landscape Association, they skillfully build berms and crown them with shrubs and flowers while maintaining botanical zones with weed control, core aeration, and turf disease prevention. When they aren't tending to the health of yards, techs equip them with ponds, fountains, and outdoor kitchens. As licensed irrigation contractors, they can also install watering systems that conserve water, quench thirsty lawns, and save homeowners the hassle of tickling a fire hydrant until it spouts.

Though the landscape designers at Tru Landscape Advisor adhere to a systematic, one-size-fits-all process, the results are anything but. Each client—big or small, residential or commercial—receives three visits from the landscaping team. The first is the assessment, when a designer will take a look at the property and hear out the client's ideas, from visions of shade-giving trees to dreams of lawn gnomes that praise outfits of passersby, all outfits. The designer then synthesizes the ideas and constraints into one 5x7 photograph, which is brought to the second appointment for review and tweaks. On the third and final visit, a three-dimensional computer rendering is unveiled along with more photography, allowing the client to fully envision the final, completed product and make an informed decision about moving forward with installation.
