It's National Home Remodeling Month

Last updated on Wednesday, May 2, 2018

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The median age of the American home is 38 years old. Here in Indiana homeowners are projected to spend over $4 billion in remodeling improvements this year alone, a projection based on information from the American Housing Survey and the National Association of Home Builders.

During National Home Remodeling Month this May, homeowners are encouraged to take advantage of a wide range of resources from the Indiana Builders Association to help them make the best home improvement decisions.

Remodeling offers numerous benefits to home owners who want to change their living environment without uprooting their family and moving," said Mike Bell, Chair of the Indiana Builders Association Remodelers' Council. "Home improvements can add more space for a growing family or older parent, improve energy efficiency and increase the resale value of your home."

Hiring an Indiana Builders Association remodeler member will help ensure you'll get integrity, professionalism and expertise through your renovation process. Members pledge to adhere to a strict code of ethics, and have access to the highest degree of training and professionalism through business and technical information and leading education programs.

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Remodelers also has online resources for consumers looking to hire a professional remodeler.
