About the Home Care Workshop Series

There’s so much to know to get and keep your home in top shape! We’ll explore some of these important topics for home maintenance, repair, and renovation every month in our free, public Home Care Workshop Series. We feel so strongly about helping you take care of your home that we’ll equip registered workshop attendees with a small home improvement store gift card to get you started on your own home improvement projects.

Fall’s Home Care Theme: Weatherization

Weatherization efforts can increase the comfort, affordability, and energy efficiency of your home. This workshop will provide a general overview of home weatherization, from do-it-yourself measures like window insulation to large-scale home improvements that require a service professional. In addition to highlighting existing resources, such as free home energy assessments, this workshop will give you a comprehensive look at the different options you have for home weatherization. Within this context, the instructors will also focus on a specific project that will improve the value, safety, and/or comfort of your home.
