Home Modernization Guide

It is essential to maintain the economic, social and physical health of Chesterfield County neighborhoods, particularly as they age. Over half of the County’s single family housing stock is twenty-five years or older. In order to better maintain and enhance these residential areas, the County has published a Home Modernization Guide that is geared to homeowners, prospective purchasers of homes, neighborhood leaders, realtors, contractors, home improvement retailers, and others. Use this Guide to revitalize Chesterfield!

Reference copies can be accessed at all Chesterfield County Public Libraries and at all Chesterfield County home improvement retailers (Lowe's, The Home Depot, Ace-Pleasants Hardware, and Southern States) The Guide is also available for purchase at the Chesterfield Planning Department - (804) 748-1050.
