6. RESIDENT ADS
We had a wonderful experience with a local woman who organizes homes, offices and garages. We got our home and office reorganized in just a few days of her work.
If you are looking for someone who can go through your things with you quickly, and in very little time help you reorganize, label and box things for storage, find places for things you don’t use often, and conveniently get rid of the deadwood.
She lived with a family in the Holmby-Westwood area for years in the past, and has excellent references. We always like to recommend to our neighbors special people who help us.
The organizer’s name is Fiona Dunkin. You can reach her at 310-430-4959. Or by E-mail, the firstname.lastname@example.org.
SEEKING AIR CONDITIONER REPAIR
Can anyone recommend a good air conditioning company and/or person? I need someone to look at my present system and to make repairs. Please send information to: Leanse@aol.com
SEEKING CABINET REFACING
I’m hoping to find a resource to reface my kitchen cabinets.
I would very much appreciate any recommendations.
Thanks in advance.
SEWER REPAIR RECOMMENDATION
Tree roots penetrated the sewer line running from my house the City sewer at the center of the street. A distance of about 30 feet.
I contacted four different Rooter Services for quotes.
The first charged me $195 for a video inspection of the line and then informed me that they did not have the equipment to perform their recommendations. The second made a video inspection and recommended replacement of the sewer line at a cost of $12,500
or alternatively inserting a “permaliner” at a cost of $11.500 (I declined both options) The third wanted to make a video inspection for which they wanted to make a charge of $200. (I declined)
The fourth NEW PIPE and ROOTER made a video inspection of the pipe at no charge. They fully explained their recommendations and
then did an excellent job over a period of two days at a cost of $6,500 including all permit and LADBS inspection fees.
I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Philip Villalba of NEW PIPE PLUMBING and ROOTER in Sun Valley.
