After more than 120 years of sprucing up homes with high-quality paints and home décor, Westmoreland Supply continues the tradition with a variety of PPG Pittsburgh Paints. Made from a 100% acrylic formula, Manor Hall interior paints ($48.18–$51.57) coat walls in several stain-resistant sheens, such as the soft, subtle Eggshell. Or, Manor Hall exterior paint with Manorshield ($53.49–$58.84) has an urethane-fortified mildew-resistant finish that prevents cracking and peeling in any weather condition, from heavy summer downpours to winter cold snaps to Halloween toilet-paper storms.
For 17 years, third-generation and FAA–certified sky engineer Addison M. Brown has hoisted panorama junkies into the sky by harnessing the power of hot, blustery air. Each morning, between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 a.m., he and his team pile up to 8 to 14 passengers into the basket of their giant balloons. Then, firing off the burner, they slowly lift off as the sun begins its own ascent, typically reaching heights from 500 to 2,000 feet. Below them, the rays of the sunrise wash over vistas of downtown Asheville, a patchwork of multicolored crop fields, and the tree-covered backs of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Maneuvering with the morning's mild wind currents, they ferry the group over hills and hollows for a 3- to 5-mile float. Upon a gentle landing, the crew celebrates with passengers by offering them a champagne toast and helping them dust the clouds out of their hair. Passengers are welcomed to bring their own cameras or video cameras to document the flight.
Though window cleaning is a big part of Window Clears' business, painting is their specialty. Its menu is diverse, allowing clients to tackle almost all refurbishment projects without need of multiple contractors. Fully licensed and insured technicians can perform almost any task needed in the home, including home remodeling and painting to power-washing a deck and deck maintenance.
Complete Home Services keeps homes looking clean year-round with a variety of services. The team can pressure-wash home exteriors, clean vinyl siding, and remove dirt, dust, mold, and algae from homes to extend their lives and increase their market value.
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.
