Ready to think spring and tackle home improvement projects?  We’re here to help.  LakewoodAlive will commence the fifth season of its popular “Knowing Your Home” home maintenance educational series by hosting a pair of useful workshops during March.

Two March Workshops

  • How to ensure your fireplace is working safely
  • How a fireplace system works
  • Proper fireplace maintenance
  • Upgrading or converting your fireplace
  • Options for installing a new fireplace
