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.
