Community Home Remodeling Fair is set for April 9 at Cleveland Heights City Hall
One way that Home Repair Resource Center serves the Heights community is through its annual Community Home Remodeling Fair. This year’s fair–HRRC's 16th–will be held on Saturday, April 9 at Cleveland Heights City Hall. Doors will open at 9:30 a.m., with presentations from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Each year, the fair incorporates new features to benefit owners of the older homes that characterize our community. A new format this year will combine talks on specific topics with an expanded array of “advice tables,” where professionals from a variety of specialties will be available for one-on-one consultations concerning such topics as roof replacement, furnaces and boilers, insulation, electrical and plumbing work, basement waterproofing, concrete, asphalt, masonry, exterior painting, and replacement doors and windows.
Representatives from the City of Cleveland Heights, the Cuyahoga County Health Department, and area banks will also be available to advise homeowners on such matters as researching the history of a house, assessing the threat of lead-based paint contamination, and learning what loans and grants are available to help with the cost of a remodeling project.
Again this year, residents can schedule a free 45-minute consultation with an architect to help prepare for a remodeling project. One of the fair’s most popular features, time slots for Ask an Architect, can be reserved by calling 216-381-6100 after March 21.
This free event, held in cooperation with the City of Cleveland Heights, is open to residents of all communities. To view a complete fair schedule, visit www.hrrc-ch.org.
