Gutter cleaners

Hello,

I live in Oriole park. Any suggestions on a reasonable gutter cleaner.

  • Claudia Cosa Linda 21 yr Edison Park resident

    Nick's All American Landscaping
    Phone: 630 893 5296 - not sure if they are reasonable (for gutter cleaning) but they are reliable- they've cut our lawn for years.

  • We used this company a couple of months ago and were really happy with them. We had never heard of them before but they were professional, prompt, efficient and affordable. We also contacted Gutter Monkeys, but we ended up choosing Bubbles. Good luck : ) http://www.bubbleswindowcleaning.com/

  • I've used Celtic Gutter Cleaning for years, they are reasonable and do a great job. Its owned by a fireman who lives in the area and does all the work himself I think. 8473613062 is the number I have.

OP area crime

Appears to be an up tick in area crime above and beyond the typical garage break in or minor property damage.
We need to be on the watch and report suspicious activity not only to police, but also this site so everyone can be informed as to what to watch for and what areas are having occurrences. Warmer weather is here, so street activity will be on the rise.
Comments and additional info on EB posted crimes is also helpful, being that info posted by EB is vague.

    The alderman and her office are useless

  • I agree. Good to post all incidents here. It's the only place we get this kind of news. The police "CLEAR PATH" site is rather useless. We have to alert each other here. People on this site are concerned and interested. It is surprising how many neighbors are clueless and don't care if it's not in literally in their back yard.

Overreacting?

I live on the 5600 block of oketo and the other night about 11:30 pm we heard knocking on our basement window followed by our doorbell ringing. When we asked who it was, a girl said it was a friend and that her name was Samantha. She wouldn't say who she was looking for and when we told her we don't know anyone by that name she finally left. The next night on the news we saw a report of home burglaries that happened this way off of the 290 highway in Elmhurst.

  • I immediately thought of the movie, "The Strangers" with Liv Tyler. A girl knocking on a door asking if Samantha was home. I trust no one these days. Call 911, or grab your firearm.

  • good for you NPRN

Airplane Noise

Why would you move in proximity to one of the nation's busiest airports and then complain about airplane noise? I constantly hear and read these complaints. How about just moving out to the country?

  • When we bought here we expected the noise, but not this. It's always been tolerable and we were even able to have to the windows open. Not even close,now. My foundation shakes, windows have been cracked (I am NOT kidding) and I cannot sleep anymore. It is well known now...

    When we bought here we expected the noise, but not this. It's always been tolerable and we were even able to have to the windows open. Not even close,now. My foundation shakes, windows have been cracked (I am NOT kidding) and I cannot sleep anymore. It is well known now that the FAA LIED about every aspect of the new configuration. They lied about the amount of planes, the hours they fly (which is 24/7, there is no "quiet time") and the pollution generated by these things. I can live with the plane noise we had before, this is just unbearable now. It should be spread out to help alleviate the noise. Our once pretty awesome neighborhood is just going to turn into another trashy hood that lives near an airport. I guarantee it.
    And yes, people are being affected by this all the way to the lake. Its not just the NW Side. And it goes as far as 90 miles west (where our camper is). For 17 years we never heard a plane out there.....now it's non-stop, albeit, not as bad as near Canfield and Talcott. Im ready to walk away, let the house go into foreclosure and who cares who moves in. Im done.

Low flying jets

A ridiculously loud jet flew just flew over my house today at 2:15 pm. I'm right off the Norwood Circle which isn't the usual path for planes. It was probably flying too low based on how much my windows shook. Did my part by reporting it online at http://www.flychicago.com/OHare/EN/AboutUs/NoiseManagement/NoiseComplaints/Pages/Noise-Complaints.aspx.
