The walkway outside of my house was icy and slippery in the winters. It was bumpy and uneven. My mom slipped and fractured her pelvis and then she had to go to a nursing home.
Eventually two boards in the walkway were so loose I had to remove them and put a chair where they used to be so people knew to avoid the area. Matt from INHS came and fixed the walkway. He did a beautiful job. He also fixed my leaky toilet, replaced my doorframe, sealed my back door so critters wouldn’t get in, and replaced the locks on my doors.
Before, I felt like my place was slipping into disrepair. I couldn’t take care of all of these issues on my own. To have someone come in and take care of it made me happy to live here. I feel safer. It’s an incredible service.
