We are pleased you have expressed an interest in DE.HOFI. We provide painting, landscaping, and repair services both major and minor for qualified homeowners in need.

Take a look below to get a better understanding of the type of repairs we do.


Ripping out floors

Unstable floors made it dangerous for a Wilmington senior to safely navigate through her house.


Step repair

Deteriorated front steps restricted senior from leaving, making her effectively housebound. 


Hot water heater replacement

Wilmington senior was without hot water for 6 months!


Repairing structural damage

The City of Wilmington almost condemned this resident's house due to serious structural damage.


Home cleanout

Unmanageable levels of clutter caused the Wilmington Department of Licenses & Inspections to deem this senior's home a fire hazard. Immobility prevented her from taking action.


Black mold remediation

First time homebuyers discovered that the basement of their new home had significant leakage and water damage, causing black mold to form.
