Since 1923, Granite City Electric has illuminated local dwellings with high-quality interior and exterior lighting fixtures. Customers perusing one of the four showrooms or the online store can ogle a plethora of Norwell lighting fixtures, including the Onion Collection of outdoor enhancers. Stylishly light a dim patio with cottage onion wall ($81.23 for the small) or classic onion wall ($116.96 for the small, $151.62 for the medium) fixtures, or install a cottage onion post ($107.80) to shower backyard plants with artificial light while the sun takes its after-dinner snooze. To help homeowners navigate the confusing world of illumination, Granite City Electric employs a seasoned showroom team that can show customers the latest trends in lighting design as well as design lighting layouts.
The repair specialists behind Mr. Appliance understand that clients should feel comfortable letting repairmen into their homes. That’s why before every job, homeowners receive a confirmation email with a picture of the uniformed, background-checked technician assigned to address their appliance needs. Upon arrival, the serviceman assesses each job by interviewing troubled appliances and recording the results on an iPad. Homeowners then get to see a detailed quote so they understand the work that needs to be done. Experienced with all brands, the technicians begin by securing the work area, putting on shoe covers, and laying down mats before repairing appliances that range from refrigerators to washing machines.
Beyond in-home service, they also supply clients with resources such as online repair manuals and use-and-care tips. They also adhere to an S.O.S—service on your schedule—policy, letting clients secure appointments through online booking.
HVAC professional Nick Lupo founded Control Point Heating and Air Conditioning in 2007, after many years of commercial experience. His licensed and insured team’s resume is equally impressive—counting more than 60 years of combined experience at making homes and buildings run more efficiently. They design and install HVAC systems, help reduce energy costs and improve system efficiency and indoor air quality, and use professional diagnostic tools to identify and repair problems.
To say that Renewal by Andersen has high standards for its window installers might be an understatement. For the chance to even apply for the position, an installer must have replaced at least 5,000 windows. And when this prospective technician is considered for employment, there's still only a one in three chance he or she will even be hired. Once they finally make the cut, that lucky third of installers are EPA certified in lead safety, and they refresh their skills with another 40 training hours each year.
When homeowners put out their broken-or-ugly-window distress signal, the technicians respond with a varied selection of window and door options. They do so swiftly—each Andersen crew averages 1,000 replacements per year. And the installers' meticulous nature and attention to detail don't end when they pop in that final pane. After they've replaced the window, they clean up with an industrial vacuum estimated to be 47% more efficient than a typical home vac. Only when a homeowner goes through a 10-point inspection checklist with the team leader, and signs off on the cleanup, does Andersen consider its job done.

With an arsenal of industrial vacuums, sanitizers, and pole-mounted brushes at its disposal, Richmond Restoration sets out to scour the duct systems of homes and small businesses. Technicians wield the poles for their initial attack on dirty air ducts and dryer vents, using the extended brushes to scrub away dust and grime. A high-power two-stage HEPA vacuum then extracts the offending debris. After technicians clean every component, a fogger machine releases a cloud of cleansing Sporiciden into the system?effectively neutralizing germs, bacteria, and mildew. Alternatively, the techs can upgrade home systems with Sanuvox air purifiers. Richmond Restoration backs all its services with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, meaning they'll make a return trip if the job isn't finished or if a poltergeist was accidentally released from the basement duct.
