Masters Professional Services’ owner, Dwayne Robert, was ahead of the energy-efficiency curve. He entered the industry more than 15 years ago and has seen insulation techniques evolve and others flop, such as stapling plastic sandwich bags over holes. Currently, he and his staff have a range of tools and methods at their disposal to keep homes energy efficient. Their methods include blown-in, roll, and batt insulation, as well as thermography. Throughout his professional career, Dwayne has also learned government cost-saving tactics, which he happily passes on to his customers. In addition to these energy- and money-saving practices, Masters Professional Services offers nonchemical pest control, HVAC services, and attic and crawl space restoration.

Steve’s seasoned band of overgrowth-abating mercenaries mows the grass, trims the weeds, edges, cleans the trimmings, and uncovers any pets and missing neighbors that have been wandering aimlessly through the impromptu jungle. Neglected suburban pastures are chopped down to a uniform crew cut, and any excess wreckage is promptly baled and removed from the premises. Steve's crew will also render the edges of lawns sharp enough to scratch pesky foot itches and whack any weeds they find by ambushing them at a tollbooth. By the time Steve's Lawn and Maintenance leaves, disheveled yards are once again ready to host neighborhood baseball games.
