Improvements, Repairs, & Inspections

Home Repair Loans/Second Mortgages - If you have necessary home repairs we may be able to assist you with the funding needed to complete the repairs.

Lead Inspections - If you live in an older home or rent an older home where you suspect lead paint we encourage you to have your home tested for lead.  Elevated lead levels can do permanent damage, cause developmental delays in children and be toxic.

Replacement Housing Program - Penquis has a variety of funding sources and programs that offer home replacement. The goal is to replace homes in very poor and unsafe conditions in which rehabilitation does not make economic sense, with new, low maintenance, energy efficient homes.

Weatherization - Eligible households can conserve energy through the application of weatherization techniques.  Households must be qualified for the Low-income Home Energy Assistance Program. (LiHEAP)


Penquis offers fee-based services at competitive prices for the general public.  No income eligibility is required.

Building Inspections - Penquis offers general building inspections, radon testing, and carbon monoxide testing to the general public (both commercial and private buildings)

Home Energy Audits - Residents can request a single test or service or the complete Penquis Home Audit.  A single test is best if you have a specific area of concern. Single tests offered include: Ventilation and Air Flow, Infrared Thermal, and Combustion Gas Leak Detection, among others.
