Pete Spediacci was not only gifted with this grandfather's name but also his knack for fixing up homes. So it only made sense when he took over the family house-painting business, which was originally established in 1926. To this day, Pete upholds his grandfather's mission of offering quality care to each customer, whether he’s painting the interior and exteriors of houses and office buildings, decorating them with Christmas lights, or installing rooftop landing strips for future alien invasions. The licensed, bonded, and insured handyman also instills a long list of safety precautions as he properly handles and disposes of cleaning solutions and paint residue.
People who have had the pleasure of working with Miguel Iraheta frequently comment on his sincerity. He always provides honest assessments of the work that needs to be performed, honest prices, and honest estimates on the time involved to get the work done. Miguel will also honestly admit that his services aren’t known for their speed, but that’s because he fills every moment on a job site with an obsessive attention to detail. He meticulously tapes down coverings over carpets, flooring, light switches, power outlets, and stationary pets, and he fills cracks and holes before covering them in paint with an artist’s eye for color combinations.

The designers at Heather Cleveland Design take this into account as they create interior designs that transform the four walls of a home into a comfortable refuge.

The home is the biggest purchase people make, with the exception of those who bought limited-edition Beanie Babies in 1997. Because it's such a large investment, it's important to keep it looking its best. That's where interior decorators and the Dream House Company steps in. They meet with home sellers to stage homes, making rooms look their best to attract buyers. They also consult with new owners, or those simply looking for a change, helping them decorate and taking them on shopping trips to use her professional discount at several major homewares retailers.
As part of one of the largest painting companies in North America, CertaPro Painters has been brightening the corners of homes and businesses since 1992. Paint is included in today’s Groupon, and customers can get a color consultation with CertaPro before scheduling paint sessions. CertaPro Picassos will then shepherd furniture into the center of the room before they begin, tucking prized possessions under clear plastic sheeting to protect them from drips and spills. After prepping rooms for a color onslaught, this adept army of brush-wielders will smother the walls, ceilings, moldings, and doors of three 10'x10' rooms in two snug coats, covering up any stains, blemishes, or paint pimples they encounter (an $800 value/room). After makeovers, newly hued walls will want to strut their stuff, begging homeowners to decorate them with expensive artwork, silken draperies, and splashes of Chanel No. 5.
