Spring renovation seminar set for May 15

To help homeowners make informed renovation decisions, the Greater Vancouver Home Builders' Association is again presenting its spring home renovation seminar.

The event, held in partnership with BC Hydro, Canada Mortgage & Housing Corp. and FortisBC, takes place on May 15 from 7: 30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Croatian Cultural Centre at 3250 Commercial Dr.

Homeowners will be guided through the various stages of the renovation process, including design and planning, legal and contracts, selecting a renovator, municipal permits and inspections, and living through a renovation.

Presenters include Vancouver-area renovators, construction lawyer, municipal building official, and a technical expert sharing the latest in green renovations. Attendees will learn about RenoMark, an industry-led national program designed to provide greater confidence to homeowners when hiring renovation contractors. To be accepted into the program, contractors must abide by a 10-condition code of conduct.

Pre-registration is required. Register online at www.gvhba.org or call 778-565-4288. Admission to the seminar is free, but attendees are asked to contribute a food item for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.
