Window Genie deploys trained professionals to scrub windows to a shine inside and out or upkeep home exteriors with a suite of services. To start window cleanings, techs wet glass and scrape away any paint flecks or other debris, then scrub and squeegee each pane clean. Before stepping back to admire their handiwork, they wipe edges and sills dry and check for any smudges or drips. Their no-streak guarantee empowers homeowners to call workers back if they're unhappy with the job or just want to watch them levitate to the second floor again.
In addition to cleaning, Window Genie can tint windows to protect furniture from fading or napping cats from sunburning. Their blinds and shutters stylishly block unwanted sunbeams, and homeowners can keep the Window Genie number on file for when they need gutter protectors, pressure washing, or tile-and-grout scrubdowns.

Ferguson Hardware has been helping do-it-yourselfers spruce up homes and beautify gardens for more than a century. Banish closet clutter or marauding garden weeds to a 32-gallon black trash can ($21.49), which can double as a handy holding place for a 32-day supply of vintage milk.

If its full name––Two Fat Guys Summerfield Ace Hardware––isn't a clue about this store's unconventional nature, maybe its pet shop is. Or perhaps that distinction belongs to its owners' related endeavor: not only do Rick and Smokey inspire ambitious homeowners with rows of home-improvement implements, but they also encourage handiness by taking to the airwaves with a weekly hardware radio show. Summerfield Ace Hardware also doubles as a U-Haul Center, and animals are welcome, especially if they're able to drive a U-Haul but also if they just want to sniff around the pet shop. Prepping for barbecue season is a cinch on these premises: in the words of Rick and Smokey, "With a name like the Two Fat Guys you might expect that we have a complete grilling center and we offer assembly and delivery." Salespeople are trained to answer nearly any home-improvement question their customers ask, and a wide selection of hardware, paint, plumbing, and electrical supplies shares space with gifts, home decor, and housewares.

Lawn Doctor's roots lead back to the mid 1960s, when friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano took on the endeavor of reviving uncared-for lawns in their hometown of Matawan, New Jersey. Their local business has since blossomed into a national franchise with more than 500 locations across the United States, each adhering to the mission of enhancing lawns' allure with time-tested techniques, dedicated customer service, and dabs of foundation makeup.
Before Lawn Doctor's assiduous staffers unleash expertise on swards, they arrive at the client's home for a complimentary consultation to gauge each lawn's specific needs. Grass gurus can thicken turf with their patented Turf Tamer power seeder and foster healthy growth for grass, trees, and shrubs with fertilizer. Uninvited lawn assailants—such as crickets, ants, and grazing neighbors—shudder at the sight of Lawn Doctor's pest-control experts. The company also helps to preserve Mother Nature's receding hairline with organic lawn treatments and natural, eco-friendly products.
