Great Big Home And Garden Expo – A Brief Video Tour

The Great Big Home and Garden Expo 2011

Idea Home at Great Big Home And Garden Show Cleveland

We  had a great time this past Monday scoping out the latest and greatest home and garden products and services. We wanted to share some of our favorites that we found relevant to our clients.

Green Friendly Companies and Products

American Green Energy – Want to “get off the grid” some day. Think solar panels and wind turbines not only for a business but for your personal home as well.  This local company based in Westlake, Ohio provides some great options for those committed to really “go green”.  We talked with Sr. Sales Executive Ankish Shah and were impressed with the company’s commitment to personalized green solutions.

Solatube – Featured on HGTV, this is a company that installs a tube that leads from your roof to your ceilings and acts as a light fixture by capturing, accentuating, and distributing natural light into your home.  This is a product you simply have to see in person to really appreciate. The local dealer, Richard Ruscin,  was a great guy with offices both the East and West sides of town.


Since we are constantly helping home sellers prepare their homes to get top dollar, we are always on the lookout for products and services to help make a house show it’s best. Here are some ideas we like:

Coat of Armor Grout Solutions – Want your floors and bathroom to look like new?  This local company (  Chagrin Falls, Ohio ) offers a very inexpensive product that will clean and renew grout.  It is mold, mildew and stain resistant and is easy to apply over existing grout. Better yet, for a very reasonable price, Vince Menozzi and staff  will do the work for you.  More info  call Vince at 216-410-4775.

Rainbow Porcelain Refinishers – This local company can refinish your tub and tile to look like new. Their special process can cover ugly tile, worn tubs, as well as old counter tops. You have got to see the before and afters to believe it. We have referred them to clients in the past and for a fraction of the price, your bathroom looks like it has been completely remodeled.
