FromFriday, Jan. 17, through Sun- day, Jan. 19, experts will host booths and how-to seminars on the latest in home-improvement products and ser- vices. With the show set up in the Pin- nacle Bank Expo Building at Fonner Park, visitors are welcome to browse and ask questions about homebuild- ing, remodeling, landscapingandmore. “We’ve enjoyed bringing these spe- cialists inhome remodeling and build- ing to Grand Island for the last 45 years,” said Bill Jackson, producer of the show and president of the West DesMoines, Iowa-headquartered Jack- son Expo Group. “January is a great time to come out, walk around and startmaking plans for spring and sum- mer updates on your home.” Jackson, who has been associated with the Home and Builders Show for 37 years, said one of the factors that has kept the show going this long is the exhibitors. “These are good, solid companies in the Grand Island area,” he said. “Theybring innewideas andnewcon- cepts to help people improve their homes, whether it is putting in a new kitchen or new insulation and things like that. The credit goes to the exhib- itors as they are the ones who really make this show.” Featured products and services in- clude remodeling materials, kitchen items, appliances, flooring, garage doors, siding, windows, heating and cooling systems, water-conditioning systems and more. Jackson said there are always good crowds at theHome andBuilders Show in Grand Island. “The public like coming to the show,” he said. “Having the show in January gives people time to think about improvements they want to do to their house by getting some ideas fromthe exhibitors and talking to con- tractors, whether it’s landscaping or that new kitchen.” Informative seminars are freewith admission and feature topics ranging from in-floor heating and sunroomad- ditions to landscaping and outdoor de- sign. Certified professionals lead the seminars, offering tips, tricks, demon- strations and advice. Jackson said people come to the show with an idea, such as a new pa- tio door, and the show provides them an opportunity to look at the various brands that are available. “It gives them a chance to touch them, feel them and see how they work,” he said. “They have an oppor- tunity to talk to the people who are going to install them and who they are going to buy them from.” Jackson said it’s all about the per- sonal contact potential customers have with exhibitors. “People are there to answer their questions about howsomethingworks or they may be looking at how to fix cracks in the foundations,” he said. “We have companies there who will take care of that for you.” Jackson said another reason peo- ple attend is to learn about all the new products that will be available on the market. “Constantly, there are new prod- ucts coming out, such as new roofing products likemetal roofing that ismak- ing bigger steps in the market, espe- cially in hail-prone areas,” he said. “There are new ideas in countertops, new furniture ideas available—many newproducts thatwillmakeyourhome nicer and increase its property value.” Show hours are 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18; and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19.
