The Habitat Repairs! Program assists with critical repairs. Due to the nature of the program, Habitat is unable to respond in an emergency situation, but staff are happy to provide information on other agencies that may be able to respond to repair needs faster than Habitat is able.
The Habitat Repairs! Program partners with volunteers, subcontractors, donors, churches, homeowners, families, and individuals to provide critical repairs and weatherization affordably to Catawba County homeowners in need.
Once you qualify, a site visit will be done by the construction manager to determine what projects Habitat will be able to do at your home. Services may vary based on need and availability of funds, but may include the following:
- Roof repair/replacement
- HVAC and/or furnace repair/replacement
- Modifications for accessibility – ramps, handrails, etc.
- Decks, steps, and handrails
- Floor covering – carpet, vinyl, laminate, etc.
- Gutter repair and leaf guards
- Electrical work
- Exterior painting
*Habitat is unable to do the following types of repair work: mold issues, cosmetic problems, issues with outbuildings, foundation/structural problems, and any issues caused by these problems.
