Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects.

The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
Common phrases, from “pounding the pavement” to “hitting the road,” point to how roughly humans treat their beloved, supportive asphalt. In response, the technicians at Suburban Sealcoat challenge this norm, administering services that protect and rehabilitate any sturdy, blackened surface. With a 6% SS-polymer-blend additive in their sealant, they safeguard pavement against dangers ranging from environmental wear and tear to cars with weak bladders. They also eradicate cracks with a hot-rubber filler heated to a sizzling 400 degrees. And when the techs aren't treating, cleaning, or patching up asphalt, they can be found re-striping parking lots, clearly delineating spaces to prevent cars from parking inside of each other.
A house can be as grand and opulent as money can buy, but without a lush lawn surrounding, it's just another building.
