Caring for the Life of Your Home

We believe in caring for the life of your home, and in doing so, having only the most qualified people taking care of it. Every single corner of your home deserves the best care and thorough service from these home experts.

From landscaping and wood care professionals to cleaning and air conditioning, we are working to bring together a group of trustworthy and most reliable network of home improvement businesses in Northwest Indiana, who have time and time again proven to bring their expertise and reputation on every job they do.

These are individuals and employees who have poured their heart and soul into providing a pleasant and professional experience to homeowners. These companies are active participants in the community, and understand the need and value for trustworthy and reliable service.

“We are always working to build the strongest and most reliable service for our customers,” says Greg Rentschler of Timberseal. “We’re in for the long run with our customers. We are there for the long haul, we’re not your weekend worker.”

Jack Hines of Hines Plumbing and Mike Lovings of Lovings Heating and Cooling also believe in the concept of high-quality work and high-quality customer service in all areas of their work.

”In our business we want to stress the simple message of standing behind our work, no excuses,” says Hines. “When we go to a house we leave it a cleaner house than when we got there. Leave the customer with the confidence that the work is done and it’s fixed.”

From start to finish we provide materials and knowledgeable service to help others complete any home construction or remodel. We have been Valparaiso’s hometown one-stop shop for 50 years and we will continue strong!” said Jenni Knight of Von Tobel Lumber & Hardware.

“We always fix it right or its free, that is our work ethic,” says Lovings. The people we hire are clean, professional and leave everything better than it was before so the customer has nothing to worry about.”

It’s through this professionalism that many of these businesses have remained successful and trustworthy members of the home improvement community with businesses like Overhead Door of Northwest Indiana’s Jim Cameron.

“When we go to a home, we pride ourselves on our quality of work and being on the ball by getting back to people in a timely matter, you’re showing them how you care,” says Cameron. “We get a lot of return business and a lot of word of mouth.”

“There is no greater compliment than knowing you provide a service that your clients are happy to refer friends and family,” said Michelle Smith of The Mop Squad.

“We’re trying to send a message,” says James Moore of One Guy with Tools. “We deal with the ‘on the side Clyde’s’ that just are not doing it right and we have to fix what they do. We are better than them and an actual business.”

Quality work and customer care also mean going the extra mile to help your customer with what they need, something that Nathan Bray of The Ground Guys is all too familiar with.

"We have a code of values we like to call living a R.I.C.H. life," says Bray. This stands for respect, integrity, customer focus and having fun in the process."

Jeff Leverich of Leverich Painting believes in being in the business of making people happy, and giving customers reasons to smile with their excellent service and professionalism.

"Simply put, we use a unique painting system to assure that your expectations are met," says Leverich. "We work closely with builders and designers to give your project a custom flare via color, sheen and durability. We pride ourselves in meeting deadlines on time, time without compromising quality."

“Quality comes with experience,” said Benita Smith of B&G Sealcoating. “We are licensed, bonded and insured.”

“I love this industry and our customers because with our combined efforts, we can create real beauty,” explained Steve Daly of Perma-Green. “The challenge is to create a cohesiveness that enables us to reach that goal.”

Terry Peek said “Being locally owned and operated gives us a leg up in treating our customers with the best service and personal feel. We’re the local experts and we’re the best at what we do.”

By combining the best people with a top notch work ethic and a staff of fully certified and bonded members, these experts will be providing ongoing educational content as well as through articles and videos to everyone in Northwest Indiana. We’ll share the opportunity to interact, ask questions of, and work with these high-quality businesses that have dedicated themselves to their community and your home, and will continue to do so for many years to come.

Check out these providers via their websites, Facebook pages, their Partner Profiles and all the ongoing educational content we will be producing with them.
