Spring is on the horizon, and for many homeowners it’s the perfect time to tackle those lingering home renovations. The upcoming Northwest Indiana Home & Remodeling Expo March 14-15 is the best two-day event to jump-start your Spring to-do list. With more than 100 local vendors, the event showcases all the Region has to offer when it comes to home remodeling.

“This is going to be the biggest Home & Remodeling Expo in Northwest Indiana!” said Eddie Castellanos, Executive Officer for the Home Builders Association of Northwest Indiana. “Northwest Indiana residents have the opportunity to speak directly to a variety of local home building, remodeling, and home maintenance companies. Instead of trying to research online or call multiple companies, residents can come and see samples, get quotes, and make appointments. Whatever their 2020 home project may be, this is the place to get things started.”

Each day will bring plenty of fun for the whole family. There will be tasty food, kids’ activities, and a variety of DIY classes featuring HGTV’s Alison Victoria from Windy City Rehab. Indiana 105 will broadcast live on Saturday. Admission is free for those 17 and younger, and is $7 for adults, or $5 if you buy in advance (details below).

“There’ll be good food and it’s a great time to get out, look at different home ideas, and get excited to get into the season of getting work done,” said Terry Keelen, Owner of Terry’s Discount Windows & More.

“The Northwest Indiana Home & Remodeling Expo will have scheduled DIY classes and presentations, some of which include kitchen cabinet painting and antique furniture refurbishing,” Castellanos said. “Home Depot will also have arts and crafts projects for kids.”

Chicago remodeling celebrity Alison Victoria, host of HGTV’s Windy City Rehab, will be making a special appearance on Saturday at noon. she will be talking about her show, giving tips and tricks on decorating and remodeling, and answering audience questions

Victoria has many years of remodeling experience, so you won’t want to miss her advice and knowledge. Make sure to get to the Expo Center early on Saturday to save your seat!

Everyone who attends will also have the chance to win a $1,000 Remodeling Shopping Spree. The prize can be used toward remodeling costs with any of the participating vendors. Just drop your entry ticket at any of the participating vendor booths and a winner will be announced at the end of the day on Sunday.

If you need any more incentive to attend the Expo, many vendors will be offering discounts and deals on their upcoming projects.

“Vendors will be running specials so it’s a great time to come in and set up appointments, get estimates,” Keelen said. 

No matter the project, the Home & Remodeling Expo is the best place to go for ideas, advice, and home improvement fun.
