In 1986 Govall Cleaning Services started blazing a cleaning trail through the homes and offices of the Boston area. More than 20 years later they're still at it. Bearing cleaning supplies and an impressive work ethic, their cleaners thoroughly and efficiently restore homes and offices to a state of cleanly calm. In addition to residential and commercial cleaning, they offer postconstruction cleanup to tote away debris and painting services to cover murals of ex-spouses.
Italian native Lucia Rubini began honing her artistic skills at Italy's Accademia di Belle Arti, where she learned the craft of line and color from acclaimed European artists Antonini and Antonio La Bianca. Today, she continues her studies at the Art Institute of Boston, and exhibits her colorful, impressionistic work both on murals and in galleries throughout the city.
Her canvases also adorn her own gallery, Rubini Art, where she regularly crafts customized portraits and hosts pieces by emerging artists every month. She nurtures more fledgling talent during individual and group lessons, which cover techniques ranging from shading and perspective through such mediums as pencil, charcoal, and paint. For kids, she amps up the fun by drawing fantasy subjects, using messy mediums, and recreating the works of famous artists, such as the impressionism of Picasso, the modernism of O'Keefe, and the ketchup stains on Pollack's T-shirts.
Ron Imposimato’s crew of experienced, insured painters update homes inside and out with coats of Sherwin Williams paint. Whether they’re painting dining rooms with eco-friendly colorant, coating the exteriors of newly constructed homes, or staining backyard decks, they guarantee each job with a two-year warranty on their labor and workmanship. Staffers can also carefully strip away old wallpaper and aging shadow puppets clinging to the past to make room for fresh coats of paint.
At Boston Smart Painting, expert craftsmen brush, roll, and spray on new coats of vibrant color. Technicians collaborate with homeowners as they hatch a new vision for living rooms, kitchens, or exteriors, then drape surfaces in swaths of color. White-robed painters can stain or varnish wood surfaces, patch scratches in drywall, and power-wash moldy decks, siding, and sidewalks.
New Look Construction's steady-handed craftsmen tackle home repair and renovation projects ranging from adding new rooms to revamping existing spaces. In addition to stitching new dens and bedrooms to existing houses, they use their skills with saws and hammers to build outdoor additions including brand-new decks, patios, and ramps. Inside homes, they transform aging bathrooms or kitchens by installing new countertops and flooring. Leaky roofs desist their dripping after the craftsmen install new roofing. Before breaking out their tape measures, New Look's staff also offers free estimates that incorporate the budgets for project costs, time of service, and their mandatory 55-gallon drum full of Sour Patch Kids.
At MJM Home Improvement, licensed home-improvement contractor Mark Mahoney transforms clients' living spaces with a wide range of roofing, landscaping, carpentry, and painting services. Mahoney tackles tasks large and small, from building a new addition or patio to fixing a hole where candy gets in during Skittles showers. His masonry work for fireplaces and chimneys keeps living rooms toasty through the winter, and his installation of rubber roofing and shingles helps restore confidence in houses stricken with baldness.
