Participating on the Home Builder Research Panel Is Easy and Rewarding
We have been fortunate in recent years to see tremendous progress in the materials and techniques we use to build housing for the American people. Today’s homes are more energy-efficient, easier to maintain, more durable and healthier to live in thanks to the ability of the home building industry to apply new knowledge in science and technology to the great benefit of our nation’s households. There is an abundance of research and innovation available to home builders today, and members of our association can be proud that the NAHB Research Center has played, and continues to play, a central role in producing the expertise that is transforming this country’s housing.
As a home builder, you have a role to play as well, and that is why I would like to invite you to become a participant in the NAHB Research Center’s Home Builder Research Panel. This is your opportunity to make a valuable contribution to your industry and I promise you that it will also be a rewarding experience.
It has been estimated that it can take 10 or 20 years for a new building product to gain market acceptance. On many industry issues, that’s too long a time to wait. Your understanding of your customers’ needs and desires and your insights into actual experiences in the field are a valuable resource that can speed up the process, and that’s why I am asking you to share your knowledge through participation on the Home Builder Research Panel.
