Painters Who Care About Customers

by Karen Anderson

Does your house need a “paint makeover,” and are you just dreading this daunting project? Maybe your kitchen or bathroom cabinets need a fresh, new look. Ron Davis, owner of Southern Style Property Works, LLC, and his team of professional painters can help with all of your painting needs — both exterior and interior, refacing cabinets, and glazing or faux painting projects, as well as any drywall projects you may have.

Providing top service to every customer

Ron’s team has more than 20 years of combined experience. They are very customer oriented, showing up when promised, finishing on schedule, and cleaning up like they were never there. Ron’s crews also installs and repairs dry wall, which is a major benefit. Ron currently has four crews that stay busy providing top service to every customer.

Before you start any repainting project, one of the most important things to know before painting is to find out whether the current paint is oil or latex paint. Ron gives this tip: Rub a little denatured alcohol over the paint. If the paint comes off, it is latex paint. If it does not, it is oil-based paint.

If your house needs some sprucing up with a fresh coat of paint:

College Planning CPR for Parents of College-Bound Kids

by Terri Hawkins

 

Does just thinking about paying for college cause your heart to skip a beat? Do you hear parents around you bemoaning the skyrocketing costs of college?  

To be protected from a “financial heart attack,” you or any such parents should schedule a complimentary CPR meeting with Pat Fehlig, a Certified College Planning Relief Specialist. Pat doesn’t just focus on the best financial path for students and their families—she also helps match colleges suited to students’ academic paths, for a comprehensive planning approach.

Pat helps such families think about the end results their children desire, then uses her resources and tools to help families find and pick the colleges known for students’ career choices. And, more than looking at sticker-price, she also helps parents wade through the financial options to better understand how to prepare and guide their children through the maze of college choices.

Many parents are not aware that out-of-pocket costs don’t necessarily correlate with the sticker price of a school. For instance, while annual tuition of a public school costs less than private, not-for-profit and private-for-profit schools, students generally take more time to graduate from public schools, losing some of that potential financial advantage. Often times, gifts and other funding available at private schools exceed that of public schools, so that combining all financial options, it can cost less out-of-pocket to go to a private school rather than a public school.

Get help wading through financial options to better understand, and to prepare and guide your children through the maze of college choices!

So, do you know someone with college-bound kids? Let them know Pat is available to meet with them personally, and that she provides FREE workshops to parents of middle and high school students and athletes. Introduce her to small business owners, those wondering about tax-advantage strategies, youth pastors, PTAs, and other such groups… with parents who would like to have money left for their own retirements!

Contact Pat Fehlig, President, College Funding Innovations at (336) 790-7148, www.collegefundinginnovations.com.

Water Use Solutions for Home and Business

by Terri Hawkins

 

Is it possible to clean laundry without detergent? What about transforming your hard water to soft without chemicals or salts?

Larry Osborne of Eco Green Lighting, Electric, Water & Air recently explained the technology behind two of his “magical” environmental friendly tools for naturally treating water, each with great benefits for both homeowners and businesses. The Hard Water Genie and PureWash both provide healthy, efficient, and money-saving alternatives to additives such as salt and detergents.

The Hard Water Genie is an external water softener system, simply wrapped around pipes for easy installation, and it works by changing the way minerals behave. The “magic” of this unit is its microprocessor and dual-wave technology (Radio Frequency (RF) and Direct Inductive Coupling (DIC), if you really must know), to neutralize minerals that form buildup in pipes and leave deposits on clothes, showers, etc.

Here are some of the great benefits of The Hard Water Genie:

  • Provides soft water that feels, lathers, cleans, and rinses better
  • Reduces existing hard water buildup, improving flow
  • Requires no maintenance
  • Uses no salt
  • Wastes no water
  • Takes no floor space
  • Cuts hot water heating costs
  • Extends the life of pipes, appliances, clothing, etc.
  • Saves you money!

AND the Hard Water Genie has a lifetime warranty.

The Hard Water Genie and PureWash both provide healthy, efficient, and money-saving alternatives to additives such as salt and detergents.

Pure Wash, a natural, easy-to-install laundry system, which uses technology originally developed for industrial and medical applications, is now also a cost-effective way to clean and disinfect clothes with little-to-no detergent–or hot water! Its “magic” is in the of Hydroxyl Radical (HR) Molecules, which are one of nature’s most powerful and safe cleansers, sanitizing and deodorizing air and water.

Find out what PureWash does:

  • Safely cleans, sanitizes, and deodorizes faster and better than detergents
  • Takes little-to-no detergents, softeners or bleach
  • Eliminates sensitive skin allergies and infections
  • Does not pollute the water system
  • Requires no energy to heat water
  • Saves drying time
  • Takes no floor space
  • Maintenance-free
  • Extends the life of clothing and linens
  • Saves you money!

While these scientifically-based solutions are not really magic, the financial results to the businesses and homeowners who use them are. For a family of four, estimated savings are $300-$600 a year for each of these solutions, quickly paying for the one-time investment for each ($349  for the Hard Water Genie or $397 for the PureWash – plus tax and shipping). Both of these great, water-based products pay for themselves in the first year of use, while also resulting in healthier, safer water and cleaning solutions.

Give Larry a call to see how easy it is to begin, or to introduce him to your business (like daycares and restaurants) and homeowner friends (especially those with children or allergies) who could benefit by saving time and money with lower water, heating, detergent, and health-related costs.

ABC Roofing Among Best NC Roofers, Backed by Good Housekeeping

by Terri Hawkins

Seal Your Roofing Deal

…with a Roofer BACKED by Good Housekeeping

When making one of the largest investments in your home, such as a roof replacement, trust is important. And that trust should have some teeth to it. Some good questions to explore when speaking with your roofing candidates:

  • Are they adequately insured for your protection?
  • Do they have a proven reputation in your community?
  • Are they committed to ongoing professional training?
  • What licensing do they have?

When homeowners choose locally owned and operated ABC Roofing, Inc., a GAF Master Elite™ Roofer, they receive professionally-trained installation with extensive protection and warranty options.  GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, has stringent standards for their roofing contractors, as they do their products. Only the top 3% of all roofing contractors have qualified as factory-certified, Master Elite contractors.

Greg Flury, owner of ABC Roofing, explained recently how GAF’s ongoing high product and certification standards have helped their highly-trained contractors to have their installations backed—not just endorsed—by the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. The Good Housekeeping Seal is earned and maintained by strict reviews and product testing, and with it comes a two-year warranty to add to manufacturer backing.

“They don’t just trust – they verify” – About the GH Seal, The Wall Street Journal, February 2, 2010

For ABC Roofing to achieve its GAF Master Elite roofer certification, and provide the added Good Housekeeping two-year warranty, it has to successfully meet and maintain five criteria:

  • Be in business 5 years—this takes the worry out of the selection processing, helping customers avoid “fly-by-nighters”
  • Be fully insured–with worker’s comp and general liability
  • Be up-to-date with GAF training–all installers must be trained once a year by GAF
  • Have a good reputation in its community—this is assessed by constant checking with local suppliers and surveys to customer when they submit their warranty paperwork
  • Meet state licensing requirements. Did you know NC doesn’t have any licensing for roofing contractors?

With no licensing standards in NC, how do you verify your roofer’s credentials and competency?
With no licensing standards in NC, how do you verify your roofer’s credentials and competency? Choosing ABC Roofing, as one of only 3 GAF Master Elite-certified contractors in the Triad, protects homeowners from playing “Pin-the-Tail-on-the-Donkey” with roof selections. Don’t let roofing projects “go wrong in a big way”—call Greg with ABC Roofing.

Remember to introduce your friends who you know have roofing projects, too. (Share the link to this article, Greg’s contact info, or ABC Roofing website, too, for their quick reference.) Homeowners, real estate agents, and contractors are all great introductions for Greg and his team to seal the deal!
