May is when the flowers are all blooming, the temperatures are rising, and a large number of home shoppers are interested in buying. But the springtime housing market isn’t just for buyers and sellers.

This is the time of year when a large number of home owners are highly motivated to cross off a few items from their home improvement to-do lists.

Last year, Americans spent an estimated $150 billion on owner-occupied remodeling projects. After a somewhat mild start to 2016, the remodeling industry is primed for continued growth as the year progresses – growth that’s sure to be amplified during the month of May when the National Association of Home Builders Remodelers celebrates National Home Remodeling Month.

Remodelers across the country are encouraged to further emphasize the benefits of home remodeling projects and the advantages of hiring a professional to get the job done right the first time.

Throughout the upcoming month, NAHBNow will feature several recent projects, techniques and strategies from NAHB members that have helped deliver more value to their clients and drive more traffic to their business, despite the increasing competition.

NAHB also makes it easy for remodelers to promote their industry with a toolkit of ready-to-use resources to engage consumers with trending remodeling topics such as:

  • Benefits of hiring a professional remodeler
  • Facts about aging in place
  • Basics of green remodeling
  • Lists of top remodeling projects
  • Suggestions on how to hire a remodeler

A guide on how to get started promoting National Home Remodeling Month is available on, along with tips to maximize consumer outreach.
