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.
The team behind Viking Restoration DKI pours more than 16 years of experience into their work as they collaborate with Disaster Kleenup International. This network of restoration contractors helps victims of disasters rebuild their lives with an eco-friendly approach. When floods, fire, and mold strike, Viking restoration techs respond day or night with their upkeep efforts and carefully inspect their work to ensure safety.
In addition to providing general restorative services, they offer a unique approach to fire and smoke damage in their ultrasonic cleaning and processing area. In this tidy laboratory-like setting, techs don white coats and rubber gloves before meticulously scouring soot-sullied items, such as dishes, electronics, and precious porcelain doll collections, to make them good as new. They can also deodorize furniture, clean carpets, restore antiques, and help clients store their belongings throughout the process. Once the goods are spick-and-span, techs wrap fragile items in paper and foam and store them in wooden crates until customers are ready to move back into their newly restored homes.

Scott and Michele Littlefield have been keeping Portland and Saco's driveways, roadways, and commercial lots free of cracks and wear since 1995. Scott manages every project, lending a hand as his team of trained technicians applies coal tar or asphalt sealant and rubber crack filling to mend damaged pavement and chipped teacups. When they're not outfitting driveways with sleek, black finishes, technicians further help their clients keep up appearances by plowing snow, removing tree stumps from lawns, and painting parking-lot stripes.
