The hammers have stopped pounding and the paint is finally dry, just in time for this year’s Tour of Remodeled Homes, sponsored by the Greensboro Builder’s Association.
This is the 21st year for the event, which is scheduled for this coming Saturday, August 4 and Sunday, August 5 from noon to 5 p.m. each day.
There are 10 homes featured on this years tour that will highlight everything from complete house renovations, to projects focusing on kitchens, master baths and even outdoor living areas.
Cheryl Collins, the executive officer of the GBA, said the purpose of the tour is to showcase professional remodeling jobs on existing properties as opposed to new construction. Tourgoers will be able to walk through the home and speak to the actual contractors as well as other tradesman and suppliers who contributed to the project. It is actually a great way to get new ideas about something that you might like changed in your own home, as well an opportunity as meet with the people who could make your vision come alive. All of the remodeling projects featured on this year’s tour are either current jobs or have been completed within the last year.
Cheryl said, “We think it speaks to the professionalism of our members that homeowners will allow the contractor to come back in and show the property for this tour. Being able to speak with the builder as well as other suppliers is a win-win-win situation for the contractors, the suppliers and the consumers.”
The $10 per person ticket price will get you access to all 10 homes on the tour and may be purchased at any one of the featured homes. You can pick up a copy of the tour magazine from area Harris Teeter and Lowe’s Home Improvement stores, as well as sponsors JLB Kitchen and Bath and New Home Building Supply.
The association is also partnering again this year with A Simple Gesture and show attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods that will be distributed to local food pantries that are focused on helping children throughout Guilford County.
