Get a jump on spring projects at the Home Improvement and Remodeling Expo
The Home Improvement and Remodeling Expo, sponsored by the Housing and Building Association of Northwestern Colorado, March 1-3 at Two Rivers Convetion Center is always a good sign that winter is ending. There’s no better way to get a jump start on those spring home improvement projects than visiting the show, since there will be nearly 90 vendors featuring products and services in every home improvement segment.
It doesn’t matter what your home improvement dreams or necessities are — chances are good that you’ll find just the right expert at the show. In fact, you’ll probably find two or three, which gives a nice opportunity to talk to all of them and do a little comparison shopping without driving all over town.
The expo is a family-friendly event, too.
“Lowe’s is doing kids’ clinics at 12:30 and 2:30 on Saturday,” said Traci Weinbrecht, the executive officer of the HBA. Children who attend the Lowe’s clinics will be able to make either a Monster Jam Truck or a waving flag. While they’re busy letting their creative juices flow, Dad can compare windows and mom can check out new appliances.
There’s also a selection of interior decor items, including a sale on all paintings offered by the Art Duchess.
“This will be my last show in Colorado,” said Christy Goldman, who will be selling all of her original old paintings 50 percent off, due to a move out of the area.
If you’re daydreaming about all the fun you hope to have in your yard next summer, be sure to check out Mesa Turf Masters, WD Yards, Ajax Pools and Spas, Bookcliff Gardens, General Shale, Sticks & Stones, Aquatime Pools and Spas, the Brickyard, the Rock Shop, Adirondack Artistry and Quality Outdoor Cedar Products. You’ll find the expertise and the products to help transform your yard into your favorite “room.”
If you’re looking for ways to brighten your home after a long, dreary winter, be sure to check out the solar tubes from the Tile Meister or Solar Green. Paint and new lighting can also transform a room and there will be several displays for both.
Home remodeling can be a huge undertaking and not for the faint of heart, which is why Lannie & Rund General Contracting and Wilco Enterprises will be at the Home Improvement and Remodeling Show. Both general contractors have made their name with amazing transformations of existing homes. If you love your home’s location, but can’t imagine another year of living with your kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms or living area, they’ll be happy to show you what they’ve done for other customers.
While a long list of endless home improvement projects may be one man’s favorite hobby, it’s another man’s nightmare. Those who want a house that’s finished, done and not in need of sweat equity, should be sure to check out the new homes on the custom home tour. It’s free and features some of the area’s best builders.
The expo and the tour will both be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, March 1 and 2, and on Sunday, March 3, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Look for the Sentinel’s official expo program in the Feb. 27 edition of the paper.
