Home Remodeling Fair set for March 24

How can homeowners get good repair information without a sales pitch? Home Repair Resource Center offers an annual event for just this purpose. This year’s Community Home Remodeling Fair will be held on Saturday, March 24, at Cleveland Heights City Hall. Doors will open at 9:30 a.m., with presentations from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

In addition to attending presentations on specific topics, attendees can consult one-on-one with professionals from a variety of specialties, such as roof repair or replacement, furnaces and boilers, insulation, electrical and plumbing work, basement waterproofing, concrete, asphalt, masonry, exterior painting, new garages, and door and window replacement.

Representatives from other nonprofits, civic organizations and banks will also be on hand to advise homeowners on various home-related issues. These include researching the history of a house, assessing the threat of lead-based paint contamination, and learning about available loans and grants designed to help with the cost of a remodeling project.

This free event, held in cooperation with the City of Cleveland Heights, is open to residents of all communities. The complete event schedule will be posted at www.hrrc-ch.org.
