Home Improvement series features three new courses

INA, Ill. (Feb. 12, 2014) – Simple repairs are key knowledge for homeowners and small business owners to keep costs down, and Rend Lake College is offering three courses to teach basic skills with some hands-on work.

After a harsh winter, homes should be inspected for exterior damage and repaired before bigger problems arise. The course Springtime Home Inspection and Repairs is designed to help homeowners do just that by teaching how to fix interior leaks, cracked concrete, damaged window sills, and much more. The course will meet from 9 a.m. – noon on Saturday, Feb. 22.

Landscaping with Bricks and Blocks will give gardeners a leg up on creating flower beds to patio areas using bricks and blocks. The course will meet from 9 a.m. – noon on Saturday, March 22.

One final course, Basic and Mosaic Ceramic Tile, will help attendees learn how to install tile like a professional with hands-on activities. The course will meet from 9 a.m. – noon on Saturday, May 3.

Each of the three courses costs $15 and is taught by Instructor Wayne Kulich. All meet times will be held in the RLC Vocational Building, Room 103. A $5 discount will be provided to anyone who signs up for all three courses.
