Affordable House Painting, Idris Miles (pronounced Ee' dris), 267-230-5875. I was a little worried about using him because his estimate was so much lower than everyone else's, but I had him do a small part of my project to see, and he did an excellent job. No paint splashed onto fixtures or trim, and clean-up was great. I would heartily recommend him. He takes the time to do things right, and he doesn't lowball the estimate and then come back to say that it's a bigger job than expected and he needs more money.

I have a wonderful cleaner come to my house.  The company is just called Alex and Elaine Cleaning and it is two people.  I have them come every two weeks and they do a very thorough job.  They do all of the windows each visit.  Also, they have been the only people that clean between all of the rails on the banister.  Needless to say, they don't miss a spot.  My next door neighbor suggested them when we moved in a couple of months ago so I know they do other homes in the area as well. Having used a number of cleaning services in the past, Alex and Elaine are head and shoulders above the competition.  They spent 10 hours in my home for our initial deep clean (average bi-weekly cleaning is about 3-4 hours).  Prices are very reasonable.  Their number is 267-266-3361.

I have had pretty good luck with Angelo's Rug Services.  They are prompt and will move large furniture.  I used them to clean area rugs.

There are wonderful new asphalt products that mimick slate both in color and dimensionality; they look great with copper shelving, etc.

Ardmore Floor Sanding

About 18 months ago, we used Ardmore Floor Sanding. They were not the lowest bid we got, but we liked how they handled the proposal process, and we were very happy with the service and the results.

Artisan Plumbing

Call Chuck at Artisan Plumbing.  His cell is usually the best way to reach him: 215-400-1842. He does a lot of work with old houses and works in Philly all the time, so he'll know what can be done.  I have always found him to be honest as well as good at what he does.
