Waunakee area companies will be among the more than 200 vendors representing every aspect of home design and remodeling sharing their expertise at the 33rd annual Home Products Show March 1-3 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.

Homeowners with projects in mind, or who are just looking for ideas, can get all those questions answered in a few hours—and maybe even line up a contractor.

People can talk directly to vendors and see their products and services—including Waunakee businesses Andersen Windows, Classic Custom Homes of Waunakee, Hellenbrand Glass, Jordan Exteriors, LawnBott of the Badgerland, Premier Builders, Stagecoach Plumbing, Michael F. Simon Builders and Waunakee Remodeling.

“This is the event to learn about the latest building solutions,” said Bruce Petersen of Hellenbrand Glass. “Bring your house plans and speak with some the best builders in Dane County.”

With the still-wobbly economy, many people are still reluctant to make the big investment of building a new home. Instead they are focusing on ways to improve their existing homes by remodeling kitchens and bathrooms, building additions, and improving outdoor space.

More families are also remodeling existing living space to take care of aging parents, which is driving greater interest in elevator and stair-lift installation.

"Out of the many home shows that lead up to spring, the Home Product Show is the one that both remodeling companies and customers took forward to the most,” said Chris Jordan of Jordan Exteriors. "If you are serious about improving your home or building a new one, you will find more choices and expertise in one place here than anywhere else.”

Another big draw of the Home Product Show is the free seminars taught throughout the three-day event by local experts. Popular seminars are color trends, solar and geothermal energy, outdoor living space, radiant in-floor heating and upgrading kitchens and bathrooms.

The Home Products Show in Madison is March 1-3 at Exhibition Hall in the Alliant Energy Center. Times are Friday 2-7 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information.visit www.maba.org.
