How We Do Our Work

This page contains helpful videos on how we complete our home modifications and repairs, so anyone can do so in a safe manner. If you are not comfortable using a tool demonstrated in one of the videos, or do not have the safety equipment illustrated, you should not attempt to complete the modification or repair.
 
Rebuilding Together Fox Valley is not responsible for any modification or repair attempted outside of our approved projects, you are completing these at your own risk and expense.
