The Western Illinois Builders Association is preparing for those warm weather home projects.
Sandburg Mall in Galesburg hosted dozens of vendors that all specialize in home update and remodel projects.
For 37 years, the WIBA Home Show has provided patrons with resources from roofing to financing their projects.
WIBA Executive Director Kaylee Johnson tells WGIL that planning plays a big part in project success.
“Now is a good time to start thinking about what projects you want and finding the person it is that’s doing that and have them write quotes for you so when the weather turns nice, if it’s an outdoor project, they can get started as soon as it turns nice,” says Johnson.
She says many people have questions about whether the members of the WIBA are local contractors.
80 members are part of the Builders Assocation, but not all of them were in attendance during yesterday’s event.
The group attempts to stay up to date on the latest trends in the home remodel industry.
