HRRC HouseMender series offers free advice from experts

In January, Home Repair Resource Center’s (HRRC) HouseMender University lecture series begins its eighth year.

Launched in 2007, the series provides homeowners with information to help them make good decisions about home repair and improvement projects. Lectures cover how to get quality workmanship when contracting, how to choose materials that best fit a specific situation, and how to decide whether a new technology is likely to meet one’s needs.

Three HouseMender University presentations are planned for this winter:

Jan 28: Is a Tankless Water Heater Right for Me? Presented by Jeff Platt of Herb’s Plumbing.

Feb. 11: Green Driveways: Permeable Pavers and Other Options. Presented by Herrick Mann of H.A.M. Landscaping.

March 25: Contracting Interior Painting: Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad. Presented by Sheila Tiddle, Sherwin-Williams decorative product specialist.

Each presentation will run from 7–8:30 p.m. at HRRC’s Teaching Center, 2520 Noble Road in Cleveland Heights (two blocks north of Monticello Boulevard).

HouseMender University lectures are free and open to residents of all communities, but reservations are requested. For more information about the series or to reserve a spot, call 216-381-6100, ext. 16.
