Recommendations?

We've learned that the wall behind the tile in our shower has deteriorated and the shower needs to be rebuilt and retiled. Who does this kind of work? It doesn't seem quite the thing for a bathroom remodeling company; we're not remodeling, just repairing. What kind of tradesperson are we looking for here?

Spotted two lost dogs

FYI - I just spotted two loose dogs running around the neighborhood by Higgins and Nashville Ave. One is a black lab and the other is a white and grey spotted mix maybe a pit. Both are friendly I tried to stop them to help them but they were busy running. They both have collars.

Remodeling

Does anyone have any recommendations of great contractors/designers?

I recently bought a home with my husband in Norwood Park. We are young and want someone who won't take advantage of us. We are looking for someone who could handle a big remodel of both the interior and exterior of the home (brick ranch house).

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    Gil from Quality Remodeling was a douche on the phone & in person.
    Bogie was very nice & helpful
    I would consider looking into a designer. I think they can go further with your ideas.

    I'd recommend Bob Brobson - a local Portage Park guy. He does "Design-Build" - so he's an architect but also does the contracting side, so one stop shop. He could handle a big picture job like this, I'm sure.

    Just tell him Beth sent ya!

  • I use Neighborhood Remodelers in Park Ridge. They have a designer on staff who is AWESOME! I have used other contractors, once each, once I found NR I haven't used anyone else.

Planes Since 6:00 a.m.

Airplanes have been flying almost non-stop all morning. Does anyone know when the next meeting is for any one of the noise reduction groups? This is the worse summer I can recall with airplane noise.
