Home Repair and Maintenance

Home Repair and Maintenance is for those students interested in doing their own home maintenance and repair work. Students learn the basic information and techniques necessary to use the major tools and various building materials required for routine repair and maintenance of a residential structure and its systems, including exterior and interior walls, roofs, windows, heating and cooling systems, and insulation.

In completing this subject, among other activities, students identify components of systems on illustrations, read lumber grade markings, estimate the number of square yards of carpeting required for a room, and provide the dimensions for standard cabinets for a layout.
