Learn About Home Systems From a Licensed Inspector

Brian Schnee, owner of KL Home Inspection Services has developed a home improvement course “ TLC for Good Home Health” to help you understand more about your home. As a teacher, licensed home inspector and with over twenty years in the commercial construction industry, Brian offers this information to you in order to help you become a more educated homeowner who is capable of performing some of your own home repairs as well as being able to confidently hire the right professional when one is needed.

The classes and workshops have been held at many venues on Long Island.

There are 8 classes and 6 workshops.  The eight classes teach the students how their home works while the 6  DIY Hands-On Workshops  reinforce what they have learned in the specific class.

With a target audience of every home seller, homeowner and/or potential homeowner, Brian builds his seminars to address real issues in the homes of his audience. His goal with each seminar is to help students become familiar with the various systems of their home, give them the confidence to make some repairs on their own, and to ensure they can hire the right professional for repairs that are more than they can handle on their own.
