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.
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.

Though the technicians of JDG Exterior and Home Improvement are adept at one-time fix-it flings, they're romantics at heart, striving to build trust and long-term relationships with each client. The licensed, bonded, and insured staffers often get to know their clients’ homes through monthly or annual maintenance visits. Once there, they draw on 20 years of construction and repair experience to survey and spruce up the surroundings, taking on carpentry challenges, drywall patches, and plumbing problems with seasoned finesse. Their list of services covers a broad range of jobs, from small projects to larger makeovers, including kitchen backsplash, light, and ceiling fan installation and remodeling homes to impress that handsome house down the block. Throughout their services, they consult with customers in detail to ensure that the end results line up with the customer's initial vision, and they gladly supply estimates on any desired service that isn’t listed on their menu.
