Carl Thompson and Eric Peterson, lifelong friends and cofounders of Lifetime Windows, have been equipping homes with high-quality windows for the past 14 years. Their troupe of specialized estimators helps homeowners select the perfect glass windows, set in vinyl, wood, or aluminum. The windows fit snugly into homes, expelling drafts with sturdy custom framing and double-paned faces and allowing light to flood in with Solar View windows. A variety of brands and custom-framing options help create desired windowed environments, whether by using large windows to make rooms airier and sunnier or accentuating newly acquired dungeons with slim window slots. Lifetime Window’s expert technicians also install interior, exterior, and patio doors.
Because Steven Green, owner of 72 Degrees Heating and Air Conditioning, is so concerned with customer safety and satisfaction, all of the company’s technicians carry not only the Technician Seal of Safety—which denotes high industry standards in background checks, drug testing, and training—but also NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certifications. These technicians arrive at homes to perform repairs or preventative maintenance on indoor heating and cooling systems, ensuring that harsh weather never bothers homeowners unless they like to bathe in the yard. They’ve done plenty right so far—the technicians, who are also factory trained and certified in the use of infrared-camera inspection systems, earned four Angie’s List Super Service Awards between 2009 and 2010.
Owner Michael Roloff pairs his decades of construction experience with business partner Nathalie Pillsbury’s engineering and design prowess to execute stylish building projects with a careful attention to aesthetic detail. Building teams regularly synchronize and coordinate scheduling with architects and suppliers and foster long-term relationships with trusted subcontractors to complete such projects as tiled bathrooms and cherry-wood kitchen cabinets. Past masterpieces from Roloff’s handiwork include architecturally consistent garage and porch expansions and an Old World–style wine cellar with a hidden door that opens when you say “oenophilia” correctly five times fast. In addition to renovating existing spaces and repairing leaky sinks, drafty windows, and sticking doors, the talented crew at Roloff Construction wills into existence tasteful modern additions to sunrooms.
At Adorned Aesthetics, even the most familiar of skincare treatments, the facial, contains some surprises; the center's roster of nine different facials includes three services specifically designed for men as well as a Just Like Heaven exfoliation and massage treatment that lasts a full two hours. Two other services make use of some rare materials: the 24 kt. gold facial uses a gold serum and mask to reverse oxidation damage, and the Diamond Exfolight facial removes dead skin using the diamond-soled shoes that inspired Paul Simon to become a cobbler. When serums fall short, clients turn to the Bio-Roller, an FDA-approved micro-needle rolling system that treats wrinkles and acne without inflicting the downtime associated with surgery.
