Why Join the Council


Stand out as the professional. Your professionalism and quality workmanship are recognized through affiliation with a large and reputable trade association, such as the Iowa City Area HBA and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The Remodelers Council helps you maintain that credibility by:

Professional Association 

It is true there is strength in numbers, and professionals who support the industry work together to make their voice heard. By becoming a Remodelers Council member, you help guide the future of the industry and improve the strength and image of the remodeling industry as a whole. You become proactive, rather than reactive, staying one step ahead of the competition and advancing your business.

Industry Information

Work smarter and stay miles ahead of the competition with important information on critical issues.  Profit from the expertise and business knowledge of other professionals. Stay on the cutting edge of your industry.  Be tuned in to the latest remodeling trends, legislative developments and technology. Receive local and national publications that keep you in touch with remodeling information.


Increase visibility for you and your company among peers and consumers via networking opportunities at the local and national level that will build your client base. Associating with other professionals increases your business contacts with reputable subcontractors, suppliers and fellow remodelers. Be part of regular membership meetings, committee participation and awards programs. In addition, take advantage of advertising opportunities, current programs and a referral system.


There is strength in numbers. The Iowa City Area HBA and NAHB maintain a powerful voice that influences local, state and federal policy issues that can have a major impact on the building/remodeling industry. 


It’s your key to wealth. Advance your career and/or business by building professional skills through the many educational programs — such as seminars, workshops and round table discussions — on a variety of timely topics offered locally and nationally. This includes hundreds of industry-related programs presented by nationally known experts at The Remodelers Show & Decking Expo and NAHB’s International Builders Show.
