Senior Home Repair
When an ESAC carpenter repairs a rickety porch for en elderly client, he is doing more than improving a building. He is helping to build stronger neighborhoods and communities by helping residents live independently in their own homes longer. Our goal is to protect your health and safety while helping to maintain and improve your quality of life. We have our own carpenters on staff who handle minor repairs or general maintenance, such as cleaning out gutters. If you are a homeowner in need of more extensive repairs, ESAC will guide you through the city’s application process for home rehabilitation projects. Our services are provided free to eligible homeowners, while others pay a small annual fee.
