Garage Door+Concrete Services - RECOMMENDATIONS NEEDED :-)

The walkway to our house recently started to crumble and is in need of repair. Does anyone have any good concrete service recommendations in the South Shore/Avalon Park/Marynook area?

We also are in need of a new garage door/installation. Has anyone had a good experience with any garage door services? Again, same areas as mentioned above.

We had 2 flyers stapled to our garage from companies that appear to do both - ARCE and Alexander. I've tried researching them online, but neither has a website.

Basically, any guidance or recommendations woulds be greatly appreciated

  • Good morning, I had a good experience with a garage install. Pro 4 Doors, Inc. 708-201-0200. There located at
    740 W. 138th St. Riverdale, IL. They do service the southside.

  • Thank you! We found a garage company from Indiana that was able to come and help out. But if anyone has any recommendation for concrete repair I'd be happy to hear them!
