Kitchens, bathrooms, additions — the variety of projects on Reno Tour 2019 offers a great way to check out the work of potential renovators for your home.
If there’s a renovation in your future, it’s important to research companies and contractors to find a good fit for you. Reno Tour 2019 is the perfect chance to see some of Ottawa’s top renovators at the site of one of their projects, where you can assess their work and ask them questions at the same time.
“It allows people the experience of going to model homes in the renovation industry, which doesn’t exist,” says Steve Barkhouse of Amsted Design-Build, which is one of the participants. “You can go any weekend to model homes; this is the only weekend that you can see a number of renovations.”
All participating renovators are members of RenoMark, a program overseen by the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association (GOHBA). Members are pre-screened and must meet strict guidelines for things such as insurance, workers’ compensation coverage and credibility.
“This is a chance for us to show off the high quality of work that our RenoMark renovator members do, and for the public to get inspiration on a variety of ways to enhance their home,” says GOHBA executive director Jason Burggraaf. “This is the only time of year that you can go and see a neighbour’s renovation up close and personal and ask questions of the professionals right there in the home.”
This year’s Reno Tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 6, and features eight companies offering nine homes to visit. Presented by GOHBA’s Renovators’ Council, the tour is a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families realize the goal of affordable home ownership.
Tickets are $10 and are available at:
All 3 Habitat ReStore locations — 768 Belfast Rd.; 7 Enterprise Ave.; 3 Iber Rd.
