Types of Home Repairs

The work performed on HomeFront Day can be significant and may include fixing leaky roofs, repairing water-damaged floors and walls, installing new windows and insulation to make a home more energy efficient so the cost of heating a home during the winter months does not go out the window, literally.

Still other tasks might include building a wheelchair ramp; painting ceilings, walls and home exteriors; fixing walkways and repairing steps to make them safe for passage; repairing inadequate or inoperable plumbing, and upgrading a home’s electrical system. Home and yard clean-ups also may be undertaken as part of the one-day home repair tasks.

The specific work completed depends on available funding as well as the skills and number of participating volunteer teams.
