Hi neighbors - I'm looking to seal the roof of my four-story condo building and wondering if anyone has had a good experience with any particular company? Also, I'd love to know general cost for sealing - I'm looking to have approx. 1,500 SF of roof sealed. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated!!

Does anyone know or can recommend a furniture refinisher who will work on the project on site? I've contacted a couple of the commercial establishments, and after getting quotes thought I'd try Plan B.

Anyone know what’s going in to the former Dive Bar space on Halsted just south of Cornelia? Looks like they’re painting the outside in preparation for something.

I noticed a big orange CLOSED by the City of Chicago as of 5-22-2018 sign on the front door of Diversey Market at the corner of Albany and Diversey. This place was recently sold (I think?) and renovated within the past few weeks. Does anyone know why it has been shut down? The sign had no details, and the store was open on Monday.

I live in a 5 story 1920s condo building with 10 units. There are a total of 4 plumbing riser stacks (galvanized) in the building. We have these risers routed out every year. Our contractor is recommending we route the risers twice a year now.
I am looking for recommendations for reputable plumbers with experience in vintage buildings. We are interested in getting professional opinions on such topics as:
1. Should we even be routing the pipes given their age and potential frailty?
2. Is power flushing a better option to routing?
3. What is remaining useful life and potential approaches to replacement?
Thanks much for any and all suggestions!
