It’s not uncommon for older Lakewood homes to have aging garages unfit for any use other than storage.  Thankfully, this homeowner problem will be addressed during an upcoming “Knowing Your Home” workshop.

LakewoodAlive will host Knowing Your Home: Garage Repair & Replacement on Saturday, April 4, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. as a virtual workshop.  The second workshop of 2020 for this popular home maintenance educational series will cover best practices for maintaining aging Lakewood garages.

This workshop aims to serve as your first step when looking to repair or replace your garage, equipping you with knowledge and confidence to proceed with your project.  Our friends at Godfather Garages will provide a presentation focused on:

  • General garage repairs like foundation rot, issues related to dirt floors and no foundation, doors, roofs and carpentry issues
  • Leaning garages and what can be done
  • Replacement – what to expect when going through the process
  • Garage kits
  • Working with contractors and architects to get what you want
  • Understanding local garage code
