Join fellow Beachwood Residents and Take Advantage of our Heritage Home Program Benefits

Posted on May 5, 2017 at 11:00 AM by Mayor Merle S. Gorden

HHP Logo High Res 2014Beachwood is proud to be a Heritage Home Program (HHP) community offering Beachwood residents free technical assistance for home repair and maintenance projects for homes 50 years or older.  

The program, conducted in partnership with the Cleveland Restoration Society (CRS), has provided millions of dollars of free services to Beachwood residents.  Last quarter alone in Beachwood (January – March 2017) HHP received 11 inquiries, 10 calls for technical assistance, 8 site visits and signed 3 loans with one pending.  

HHP and CRS provide services including site visits to answer home repair, improvement and maintenance questions, advice on energy efficiency, access to information on local contractors, evaluation of bids and much more.  Qualified Beachwood homeowners also have the option of obtaining a low-interest fixed-rate HHP loan. Eligible projects may include (and are not limited to):  

  • Exterior and interior painting
  • Window repair & replacement
  • Kitchen and bath improvements and remodels
  • Carpentry and plumbing
  • Chimney repair and masonry work
  • Basement finishing and waterproofing
  • Air conditioning
  • Wood floor refinishing

If you have a home that’s 50 years or older, you may qualify for this free resource and should consider taking advantage of it.
