May Is National Home Remodeling Month
Spring is the most popular time to remodel. So, what better time of the year for National Home Remodeling Month?
Many home owners want to try their hand at remodeling their home themselves. This May, with the help of the NAHB Remodelors™ Council's consumer campaign on "How and When to Hire a Professional Remodeler," you can help educate consumers on the importance of hiring a professional remodeler to safely make their house a home for a lifetime.
Throughout the month, be sure to take advantage of the opportunities surrounding National Remodeling Month to help publicize the industry and emphasize to home owners the importance of hiring qualified, professional remodelers. Contact your local council to find out about plans for the month and join this important campaign.
The NAHB Remodelors™ Council will have downloadable material to help promote National Remodeling Month, including proclamations, public service announcements, press releases and articles. Visit the Remodelors™ Council section of the NAHB Web site for more information.

Who Will Be the Next Remodelor™ of the Month?
The Remodelor™ of the Month (this link is accessible to Remodelors™ Council members only) award program is underway. Don't miss your opportunity to be named the Remodelor™ of the Month.
The program groups local councils from different states into designated months. There will be two “wild card” months that will allow the council’s members-at-large to participate in the program. A winner will be chosen each month and that winner will then be automatically included in the nominations for the Remodelor™ of the Year award.
This is a great opportunity for local councils and members to get involved and submit their “best of the best” members to compete with other councils. The national Remodelors™ Council will send out press releases and highlight each winner in ReNews, the Remodelors™ Council e-newsletter.
