Since 1998, the licensed technicians at Lanaville Contracting have kept outdoor surfaces such as windows, decks, and driveways looking like new. A handful of services aid in this endeavor, including pressure washing to oust dirt and grime, painting to lend a home a pleasing hue, and sealing and staining to prevent a beautiful deck from suffering water damage. These professionals focus on providing a twofold potential benefit: not only do homeowners get to enjoy a more pristine home while they've got it, but also the enhanced curb appeal could help with resale value when they want to sell it.
Eric and Markay Suevel have run the eponymous Suevel Studios—a full-service glass studio that creates custom pieces and hosts classes—for more than 30 years. Both proprietors have practiced the art for decades, but their partnership marries two distinct approaches. Eric learned the craft at a young age from his uncle, and Markay possesses a liturgical perspective as an ordained minister with a master’s in divinity. They cut and fuse alongside a team of worldly and learned glassworkers, all of whom bring their own specific expertise to the table, whether doing restoration work or mosaics. The studio's stained-glass work lights up churches, homes, and restaurants as well as their students’ faces after they complete one of 25 classes. There, apprentices acquire the skills required to decorate household windows or liven up bland, translucent reading glasses.
