Ask the Contractor: Remodeling experts all in one place this weekend

Sandy Griffis
Yavapai County Contractors Association

Even I can admit that starting a home remodeling project, however large or small, can be a hassle. The process would be so much easier if you could see the products you need side by side, all in one place, so you could compare them without having to drive from showroom to showroom.

Fortunately, you can do just that this weekend starting today at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, where hundreds of home-improvement companies have set up shop for the 35th annual Yavapai County Contractors Association Home and Garden Show. Stop by, look at materials, meet the tradesmen, see how products work and learn about new ideas and "stuff" you didn't even know existed in the marketplace.

Now is a great time to start a home renovation project or a repair rampage, and the YCCA Home Show is a great place to pick up knowledge and meet the people you need to get the job done.

More reasons to attend:

• You will get to meet the contractors and owners of the companies face to face.

• You can see, touch and feel the latest products on the market for home renovations and repairs.

• Are you going green? Find out how to do it affordably and in stages by talking to the contractors who work with green building materials every day.

• You will walk away with so many new ideas.

• You can comparison shop and not just for products. All contractors are not the same, so it is important to narrow down your selection according to which contractor is best suited for your particular project. Some specialize in whole house renovations or elaborate kitchen makeovers. Some only do garage doors or window replacements. Mingling with contractors at a home show allows you to skip the step of setting up an appointment with a contractor who does not even do the kind of job you need done. You will discover that you might need more than one contractor for a single project. Not all remodelers do their own painting, for instance. Many extremely skilled home-improvement experts can't give you design advice. At the home show you will meet people who work for design/build companies and can do an entire project from floor to ceiling, and you will meet some who can do parts of the job but will need you to find a painter or plumber. The vendors are qualified, licensed contractors with experience and dedication.

You will be in heaven if you need home repairs, decorating ideas, landscaping, screen doors, windows, spas and saunas, and even boats and RVs and quads. There will be representatives from mortgage companies, insurance companies, real estate agents, chiropractors and so much more.

Stop by the home show and have your head filled with wonderful ideas. Admission is free. The hours today and tomorrow are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. We ask that you bring non-perishable food items to support our community partner, the Yavapai County Food Bank. See you there.

Submit your questions and concerns to through and watch for YCCA's answer in the real estate section of the Daily Courier. YCCA, your local trusted referral source, can be reached at 778-0040. Don't Start Without Us!
