Drill bits twist, measuring tape unfurls, and saws chomp through two-by-fours in ACE Hardware, where shelves dangle with scores of tools and other home-improvement essentials. Wall pigment by Ace Paint and Benjamin Moore beams across the color spectrum as faucet parts and cabinet hardware retool aging abodes and jury-rigged time machines. Large appliances, such as Honeywell space heaters, Perfect Aire air conditioners, and Cadet thermostats, keep indoor air at a comfortable temperature. Outside, bags of seed and compost join charcoal grills to brighten backyard celebrations as rolling hand trucks heft heavy lumber purchases or prefab doghouses for socialite canines. Tools, electrical tape, and other handyman essentials round out each location's array of fixative and creative supplies.
JC Teague LLC's eponymous technician first began working as a trade handyman in 1976, earning his keep as a certified gas service technician.

Now, Joe Teague helms a residential and commercial cooling, heating, and gas business, where he repairs air conditioners, heaters, gas systems, and the brains of cyborg butlers.

After serving in a police department and the US Navy respectively, Jeff and Sabrina Shaw decided they wanted to protect something else for a change—lawns. Through A.L.E.R.T. Lawnscaping, the duo does just that, refurbishing yards across Alachua County with everything from landscape installation to shrub and small-tree removal. They mow, edge, weed, and prune grass and hedges, and they perform seasonal cleanups in both the fall and spring. Aside from caring for lawns, the crew also strips away dirt and muck from driveways with pressure washers and then buries the dirt way out in the forest so it knows what it's like to belong.
As tile floors age, their grout absorbs dirt and grease, gradually becoming darker and darker. Mopping ins't the answer since it pushes filth into the grout, perpetuating the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. Prestige Tile Cleaning shaves off the grit with high-powered cleaning services for tile, concrete, and stone. The company specializes in restoring high-end natural stone such as granite, marble, travertine, and sandstone, returning kitchens, bathrooms, and throne rooms back to their original splendor.
