Concrete stair repair and iron railing repainting contractors

I saw a post on this same topic from 2014, but was looking for more up to date information. I am looking for a contractor to do concrete repair on the front steps of my house. Specifically, I have a crack and separation along the base of the first riser at the walkway (see photo). Other than this there is no major problems with the concrete. Ultimately, what I would like to have done is crack repair, new parge coat, and iron railings prep and paint. Looking for suggestions on contractors used for similar projects in my area. Thanks in advance.

  • Ken Most interesting man in the world

    anything they use to fill the separation will fall out eventually. short of replacing sidewalk fill with a good flexible material.

  • Thanks Ken. That’s why I’m looking for a contractor to give me some guidance as to whether it should be patched or if the walkway should be mud-jacked or some other magic that would give me a lasting repair. I appreciate your response. Thanks again.

Riis Park Safety?

Hey Guys,

Just finally moved into the neighborhood and noticed the park. It looks beautiful, but overall is it a safe place to go walking/are there better times of the day to go?

I moved from the Portage Park neighborhood and frequented Portage Park itself so was just wondering how it compared to that.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

  • To tell you the truth
    nothing is safe today maybe someday thangs
    will change for now no and
    congratulations on your new place

  • Agree with SS above - generally speaking it’s a fun place to go in the summer while the sun it out. Great little Farmers Market on Sundays - has a dog park and huge swimming pool. There are some people, like anywhere, who get loud, messy and are a bit shady.

  • paul in jefferson jefferson park resident

    Only in day or with people present.
