LakewoodAlive To Host “Knowing Your Home: Weatherization Basics” Workshop On September 14

LakewoodAlive's "Knowing Your Home: Weatherization Basics" Workshop takes place September 14th. 

Winter is coming! Which means we have to take certain measures to ensure our homes are prepared to endure winter’s wrath.

LakewoodAlive will host Knowing Your Home: Weatherization Basics on Saturday, September 14, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Cleveland Lumber Company (9410 Madison Avenue in Cleveland). The 11th workshop of 2019 for this popular home maintenance educational series seeks to help you get your home in shape for the fall and winter months, saving you money and discomfort.

Led by our friends at Cleveland Lumber, this workshop will cover a range of middle-to-high impact improvements and “hacks” you can do yourself in order to keep cold air out and warm air inside your home. These include caulking and air sealing techniques, installation of weatherstripping, best practices with storm windows and other easy ways to make your home more energy efficient.

This workshop will focus on essential tasks in order to get your home ready for hibernation. The discussion will include the benefits associated with an energy audit and how it can make large projects like insulation or furnace replacements easier and more cost beneficial. Help ensure your home is safe from the harsh winter and help prevent any interior damage.
