Fred's Chimney Magic didn't learn to make magic overnight. Its team spent more than 34 years gaining the experience needed to clean and maintain chimneys safely. With that experience, staffers now service gas, oil, and fireplace chimneys, as well as clean gutters, install gutter guards, and serve as NYS Wild Life Trappers of squirrels and raccoons. Fred's Chimney Magic also repairs and relines chimneys for New York City's Firehouses, as well as the Town of Oyster Bay.
Whether a client needs their front door painted or a new front door installed, the team from White Oak Building & Design, Inc., is happy to take on the job. The handymen are adept at virtually any around-the-house project, even if it's a task as small as installing a light fixture in a birdhouse or a project as big as renovating a home from basement to chimney. White Oak has been sending crews out to repair homes in Fairfield and Westchester counties for 50 years.
Instead of allowing photographs to crumble and filmstrips to gather dust, the staff of Reel-to-Reel Video rescues precious memories by converting outdated media to DVDs replete with custom menus and easy-to-navigate chapters. The process is simple: Customers go online and order a shipping label to be sent via email or regular mail. Once it arrives, they fill a secure package or load a bodybuilding carrier pigeon with old film, slides, tapes, and photographs. Back at their lab, technicians repair broken film and add music to silent strips at no extra cost, returning all the original materials with the DVDs.
