Brick Pavers

Hi, Looking for a company to install Brick Pavers. Any recommendations?

  • I recommend 3D Pavers in Des Plaines, http://www.3dbrickpaving.com/. To prevent stormwater from running off and contributing to urban flooding, do not seal installed pavers. Or use permeable pavers.

  • Call Victor@ 7083684072. His team did our backyard last year. We love it!
    Responsive, nice people, they clean up in addition to a very fair price

Anyone know of folks who do great work with walkways between houses - including problems from water runoff that contributed to cracked and sunken cement?

    Real remodeling or a we went out of business, but won't admit it type remodeling? I

Water heater annual maintenance

Anyone willing to share what they paid to have their water heater drained? I just called a couple of companies and they weren’t able/willing to give costs over the phone. Some had a call out fee that would be waived if I had them do the work.
Also, what was included in routine maintenance? Just draining the tank or more?
Any company recommendations would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance!!

    @ Brian- when you said electric heater is that by chance a tankless heater?

  • Correct

Selling 2BR Condo, need wood floor type recommendation

We are selling our 2 Bedroom Condo in Lakeview. We plan to take out the existing wood floor in family room and also take out bedroom carpeting. We plan to replace with a new wood floor through out the unit. We plan to buy at Home Depot. What flooring sells the best these days? Looking for a reco to appeal to prospective buyer.

  • Yep depending on the condition, Rebuilding Exchange finds a new home for it in its original form or uses it to make furniture and supply their woodworking classes.

  • Thanks for all of the good info! The old flooring is a laminate wood. And there is a subfloor underneath.
