Home maintenance: safety repair
Mason was here yesterday, attending to a loose step, just past this covered stoop. Yet another delayed maintenance item at this home. I got multiple quotes, and recommendations, finally deciding to go with an Albanian immigrant mason. His work is very good, prices fair.
Besides the now repaired stoop and step, 2 cracks in my concrete front walkway were enlarged and cement filled again. Safety is the overarching concern here. Adding this repair to this month's budget meant pinching back in other areas. Glad to get it taken care of, it's part of my Winter preparation.
