When owner Julie Byrne founded Clay Caf? in 1996, she wanted to establish a cozy, unpretentious environment where families could spend quality time pottery-painting and embarking on other art projects. Describing what she envisioned to the Columbus Dispatch, Byrne stated, ?We kind of wanted a grandma kitchen?something homey.? At Clay Caf?, visitors might forget they?re not relaxing in their own homes amid the studio?s popular mismatched chairs, flower tablecloths, and resident father yelling at a sports game on TV. The hospitable staff invites guests of all ages to let their artist instincts run wild during open-ended potter-painting sessions, and they host an array of special events including baby showers and birthday parties.
Hammers, wrenches, measuring tape, and other tools stuff the leather utility belts of Handyman Connection's well-prepared craftsmen. Clad in crisp polo shirts embroidered with the company logo, they tackle projects big and small, such as retiling showers and floors, silencing drippy faucets, and outfitting doors with new locks. To ensure transparency, they carry out complimentary in-home evaluations and price estimates, which can be scheduled over the phone or online before each job. :m]]

Ride Renewal revitalizes soiled road crafts at its shop or brings the clean to cars with mobile detailing services within a 12-mile radius of its location. Wherever the washing takes place, a professional crew makes automobiles immaculate inside and out in two hours or fewer. The exterior will experience a thorough soaping, scrubbing, rinsing, and waxing, as well as a grime-ridding wipe down for each rim and a tire dressing. As for the interior, a scrupulous sweep expunges the upholstery of garbage accumulation, fallen crumbs, and forgotten sandwich stowaways. Windows are either cleansed or cast under a spell of invisibility, and a final dressing dusts off the dashboard, console, and Donna Shalala–bobblehead-doll collection.
After securing tarps around sofas and tables and laying protection over floors, Millers Pro Painting's team gets to work rolling paint across ceilings and brushing pigments over walls. They do this using eco-friendly Sherwin-Williams paints. The team refinishes everything from decks to entire home exteriors, and they also paint commercial storefronts. To get at hard-to-reach spaces, they scale ladders or swipe their paintbrushes at the apexes of their trampoline jumps. When they're not painting, the crew executes services such as construction and pressure washing.
Five Star Painting's expert wall refurbishers de-stress home decoration with complete setup and teardown. Punctual professionals revamp the home's rugged exterior, scraping away loose layers and re-staining wood siding if necessary. Home husks sport lavish coats of 100%-latex paints with Emulsa-Bond, which helps paints adhere to surfaces and protects against UV rays and attacks by sentient sunlamps. Staining services stylize and weatherize decks and wooden fencing. Grime exterminators expunge mildew, algae, dirt, and salt deposits through a pressure-washing solution of 10:1 bleach to detergent. The all-around handypersons also wash windows and hang holiday lights or clean Santa impersonators out of chimneys during the holidays. Prior to painting interiors, Five Star's painters move or drape drop cloths over all area rugs, furniture, and indoor anthills and ensure a smooth finish by spackling tiny holes and cracks.
