We read the winter prep article in last week's enews and it motivated us to recommend Mr. Horacio Garcia (571/439-9384) to clean rain gutters. He did a great job at a reasonable price. He also trimmed overgrown trees back to the size and shape that makes you glad you didn’t tear them out and start over. But the best part Edie says is that Horacio took those tasks off their winter prep list.
Theodora Poitevin used Neighborhood General Lawn Care to de-thatch her yard last year and thought they did a good job. Contact Ismari Menjivar at 703/477-3673.
Landscaping Contractor Recommendation – John & Lois Hoffmann want to give a big shout out to Wilber Serrano of J and F landscaping.
J & F Specialties is owned and operated by Village resident, John Boynton (Truro Court). You may recall that previously John offered to help older residents or those with physical restrictions with home projects. Even though that program has ended (for now), some of the beneficiaries want to thank him. Here is one such note from Andrew Bilski (SVD):
From John Cooley:
I would like to recommend Homestead Tree Service, (703) 644-2382, for any tree work you might need. They removed some large high branches overhanging my house today, definitely a job for experts, and they did a super job.
Abdullah Hagi (Edmonton Court), a rising WSHS Junior and certainly a jack of many trades, though still learning in order to become a master. Power washing, leaf raking, garden bed prep, gutter cleaning, mowing grass, car washing / detailing and just about anything you may need and willing to invest in the lad’s growth into manhood. He has done enough work for me to earn my (John Cooley's) recommendation. Text him or call him at 703/886-6794.
Appliance Repair – one of the most often questions we get is who do we recommend to repair home appliances.
Gaye & Marion Evans found Gus as a small business owner for home services. Gaye reported that he was prompt to respond and to create an appointment. He did some electrical work as well as took some stuff from two different houses to the dump at a very reasonable cost. Gaye said that she would definitely call on Gus again to address home services.
Chris and Heidi Pappas recently had an addition put on their King model house on Wythe Lane. Chris & Heidi highly recommend Flash Services, who did an outstanding job. Mike Fleshren did high quality, craftsman-level, work. Mike has a great attention to detail, is flexible, and made the process a truly enjoyable one.
