Lakewood Glass and Screen is a store providing a convenient service. The staff is well versed in their craft and are friendly and helpful. The cost of the services they offer such as re-screening windows and doors is reasonable but their cost for customer windows is rather high. I was able to get similar windows from another company for about 25 percent less than I was quoted here. For routine jobs, Lakewood Glass and Screen are perfect. For larger jobs, I think a better deal can be found elsewhere.

Organic Compounds, Inc is a nice store and has helpful people working there. I needed to have several pet stains removed from my home carpeting. The clerks at Organic were able to provide me with the cleaners that would remove the stains. For the most part, the stains did come up but I did have to have another company come in and remove some especially tough stains.
When I purchased my home, I needed to make several repairs. A major repair was replacing the single pane garage door. Byers and Butler was an excellent choice for me. They sent a technician out to take measurments and provide an estimate of the cost. My garage is unusual in that it is a two car garage that has been converted to a one car garage. The tech was able provide an estimate that was several hundred dollars less than other companies I had contacted. The installation was quick and the cost came in at just a little more than the estimate. A very satisfying experience.
