What's the story with the sidewalk repairs on Clermont btw Dekalb and Lafayatte? Look's like several house's had their uneven sidewalks leveled at the same time. Was this done by the city or did the homeowners organize this between themselves? Who did they use and how much did it cost?
the city was kind enough to give us all DOT violations at the same time, but they most definitely did NOTpay for repairs! a neighbor helped organize all homeowners. we all took out our individual landmark permits and we hired one contractor do the job for all the homes on the block - Carlos Serna of Stone R Us at 917-834-6170. i wrote a post on this a few months ago with more details: http://forum.brownstoner.com/q.../bluestone-sidewalk-repair-does-anyone-have-experience-with-stones-r-us-or-biordi-construction
on average, prices ranged from about $1600 - 2800 for most homes on the block. it all depended on how much bluestone had to be replaced, whether a tree pit was needed, etc. best part is that all of the concrete was replaced with bluestone. work was completed late last year, but we are still waiting for DOT to come do their final inspection. i am just waiting on the final approval to post a recommendation. work looks good to us, but want to make sure it passes muster.
