El Cerrito Homeowners Workshop

Posted on June 13, 2017 at 5:03 PM by Margaret Livingston

On May 26th Jay Marlette, the City’s Code Enforcement officer and Building Inspector, hosted a workshop for El Cerrito residents on the components of a home and how to identify common issues and defects. Ten people attended the workshop which included information on foundations, roofs, handrails, water heaters, smoke/carbon monoxide alarms and other pieces that make up a home.

This workshop was the first in what will become a series of informative workshops designed to assist homeowners in learning how to properly maintain their property and keep it code compliant.
