We’re known as the “City of Beautiful Homes,” yet as many residents have discovered, maintaining our renowned-yet-aging housing stock requires more than some basic elbow grease on the part of homeowners.

LakewoodAlive Knowing Your Home Series

LakewoodAlive’s Allison Urbanek will present during “Knowing Your Home: How to Contract a Repair” on April 26.

LakewoodAlive will host Knowing Your Home: How to Contract a Repair on Thursday, April 26, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Lakewood Public Library (15425 Detroit Avenue in Downtown Lakewood).  The fifth workshop of 2018 for this popular home maintenance educational series will focus on the process of working with a home repair/improvement contractor.

Led by Allison Urbanek, LakewoodAlive’s Housing Outreach Director, this free workshop will cover the basics of understanding your repair, including navigating the process of obtaining estimates, scheduling the job and ensuring the project is completed properly in a timely manner.

The goal of this presentation is to help remove the guesswork from the daunting task of home repair and improvement projects.  When your project is done correctly the first time, you save precious time, money and sanity.
