What Does Your Home Need?

No more blindly searching through yellow page listings or scouring the overwhelming Northeast Ohio home improvement shows for the goods and services that best cater to older houses. You can spend lots of time and energy sorting through information and seeking out businesses that best serve older homes. Sometimes residents can do the work themselves. Sometimes we need to pay professionals to do it. Either way, knowledge of local resources, and the expertise and guidance of local professionals are valuable and a necessary part of giving our century homes a sound start for their next 100 years.

Whether you are putting sweat equity into your home or commissioning experts to make those repairs or improvements, there is no doubt you will get something valuable out of this one-of-a-kind Lakewood Old House Fair. It is Saturday, May 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Harding Middle School (at Hilliard & Madison). Admission is always free.
