PPG Porter Paints' team has dedicated 90 years to sprucing up homes with its revered brand of vivid, low-odor paints, stains, and primers. Multiple lines and sheens of interior paint offer to protect walls from presidential portraits painted in mustard ($25.79+/gal.). Eco-conscious shoppers can snag gallons of Pure Performance color, designed to thwart mold and mildew without angering Mother Nature's overprotective rottweiler ($33.39+/gal.). Peruse exterior paints if looking to prevent al fresco fortifications from cracking and peeling during super-soaker season ($25.79+/gal.). Effective on most surfaces, Porter's acrylic, synthetic, and alkyd Seal Grip primers also help house-wide paint jobs to stay put ($40+/gal.). Amicable staff members roam each locale's voluminous aisles and are eager to provide product recommendations for any home, office, or abandoned grain silo.
The color connoisseurs at Don West Painting boast more than 35 years of experience transforming dull walls into dynamic canvases. Armed with their own brigade of supplies, the tint aficionados deftly apply coats of Porter or Sherwin-Williams paint furnished by the homeowners to a room measuring up to 12'x12', with ceilings no more than 10 feet high. Add some pizzazz to the den with hue reminiscent of your favorite jellybean, or give the home office a more dignified look with a chromatic covering that perfectly complements your Spider-Man briefcase. Don West's friendly fresco-ers can also paint trim, doors, windows, and ceilings for an additional fee, and two Groupons may be combined toward the painting of a larger room, if desired.
Once people outgrow fearing the consequences of stepping on cracks in the sidewalk, they tend to take the pavement beneath their feet for granted. Twelve years ago, Sealer Kings of Nashville's owner Bob was exactly the same way, until his recently sealed driveway cracked in no time at all. He did some personal research, performed the task himself, and so loved the results that he sold his gourmet food business and went into asphalt care.
Today, he still fights the good fight against cracks, and any other form of wear and tear experienced by driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks. As his secret weapon, he wields undiluted sealants that sink deep inside the asphalt. On top of that, he also mixes in latex or Diamond Shield Foritifier additives so that each coat he applies is as hard to wipe away as the memory of seeing your parents do the macarena.
