Technical Assistance - A Job Well Done!
Construction season is by far the busiest time of year for HHP. Heritage Staff visit and assist hundreds of homeowners over the summer months, and here is a snippet of feedback we've received so far this year:
"My wife, Karen, and I were extremely impressed with Dean's knowledge, expertise, experience and professional manner. He was quite helpful. Thank you, what a great and wonderful program." -
Kevin G., Homeowner, who received technical assistance for exterior carpentry, chimney tuckpointing, plaster/drywall and painting, and small electrical projects.
"Rich came and was so helpful. It's neat to have a wise, experienced contractor to look at things and help you see what's needed most. I look forward to referral sources to price out next tasks. Heritage Home is a great program. Thanks!"
-Sandra R., Homeowner, who received assistance prioritizing her exterior projects including roof, gutters, insulation and tree removal that is harming the foundation.
"Thanks again for coming out to my house last week and evaluating my repair issues - [the Construction Specialist] gave some very helpful insight/suggestions on what I'll need to do - I'm glad they sent someone with their level of knowledge and experience!!"
-Tom J., Homeowner, who received guidance on numerous masonry projects including tuckpointing, step rebuild, wall stabilization and energy efficient retrofits to an enclosed sun-porch.

Community Events provide a great opportunity to get in front of your residents, put a face to the program and answer questions about the process. We would be happy to put together a booth or present a workshop at your upcoming community gathering.
