Your home is your most important investment. There’s no better time than now to take proper care of it, and LakewoodAlive is here to help you every step of the way.
“Knowing Your Home” is an educational series focused on sustainability and home maintenance best practices empowering homeowners to tackle necessary repairs and improvements. This series is designed to benefit a wide range of homeowners:
- Those considering a home DIY project
- Those planning to hire a contractor
- Those simply interested in better understanding how their home works
The workshops are held at unique locations around the community. Most are presentation format and those that can be held on location aim to offer a hands-on feel, providing homeowners step-by-step direction on how to complete specific repairs.
The 2018 edition of “Knowing Your Home” features a collection of 14 workshops taking place from March through October led by experts within the industry. These workshops cover a wide range of topics designed to educate homeowners. The best part? Each workshop is open to the public and free to attend.
