About this Event

NAIT Alumni Lifelong Learning | Operation & Maintenance Manual for your Home

For most of us, our homes are the largest purchase we will make in our lifetime. Some of us will purchase new homes, others will enjoy a well-cared for older home, and some will purchase fixer-uppers. Regardless, all homes require regular inspection and maintenance to ensure that the various systems and components are operating correctly and efficiently, and to ensure that small issues are discovered and corrected to prevent them from becoming big problems.

Enjoy an informative and educational evening with Derek Walker, P. Eng., a Certified Professional Home Inspector and fellow NAIT alumni, as well as a NAIT instructor. Derek will discuss regular maintenance activities - most of which you can perform yourself - and illustrate their importance by showing what happens when you ignore them!

Derek will cover how houses age and offer guidance on the many choices that exist when replacing and upgrading roofs, furnaces, and windows. Taking good care of your home requires having an intimate understanding of how it functions and the care it requires. This presentation will serve as a primer, and hopefully good motivation, to successfully operate and maintain your home.
