Steve Hoffacker Is Your Home Modifications & Repairs CAPS Instructor
Steve Hoffacker CAPS CEAC SHSS has a long history with real estate sales and new construction and has been a city planner, helping to analyze land use and demographic patterns. As an amateur remodeler for his own homes and as a volunteer for many non-profit organizations, Steve has completed many remodeling and construction projects.
His efforts include installing a new roof from deck replacement to finished product (including valley steel, drip edge, paper, nailing, and finish shingles) on more than one building, bathroom remodels from the shell (including demolition and fixture and tile removal to get to that point) to completion, kitchen remodels, and many other handyman-type projects – installing lighting, completing electrical repairs, hanging pocket doors, reversing door swing and hanging new pre-hung doors, installing electronic locks, replacing windows and cabinets, and more.
Steve gets construction! He also appreciates that many repairs and improvements are going to be smaller budget, quicker to complete ones – something you can handle quite well.
He understands the complementary role than handymen play in the overall picture of creating effective aging in place remodeling scenarios. Some projects are going to require a quicker response and be simpler and less expensive to complete than others. Handymen are well suited for the smaller jobs and serve the client well when they need that quick response and results. General contractors usually tend toward the larger projects, although not in every case.
Steve stresses the roles that everyone can play in a home modification project and definitely sticks up for the contributions of the handyman in the process. You’ll enjoy his inclusion of your profession, and you’ll appreciate having the Certified Aging In Place Specialist (CAPS) designation. Your clients are requesting professionals with this designation!
