Home Fair Expo 2011

“A Showcase of Products & Services for Your Home & Garden”

If you’re thinking of building a new house or an addition, putting in new windows, remodeling your kitchen or bath or any other type of home improvement project, the Dome Arena and Minette Hall at the Fair & Expo Center will be the place to be the weekend of February 25, 26, 27, 2011. Instead of having to drive all over town to gather information, you can find it all in one place.

The Better Contractors Bureau, (BCB, as it is more commonly known) with headquarters at 1151 Titus Avenue in Irondequoit, is hosting its 27th annual Home Fair Expo. Carmen Santora, the bureau’s executive director and home show manager said, “This year’s show will be one of the biggest ever with over 285 exhibits”.

The show’s theme is “Everything for in and around the home”, “There surely will be”, Santora said, pointing to the 285 exhibits this year, everything from windows, doors, stand-by home generators, kitchens, alarm systems, financing, pools, landscaping, fireplaces, decks and more. Attendees are encouraged to bring their plans for their future projects to have the many contractor exhibitors review them. Also representatives will be on hand from the Attorney General, Monroe County Health department, NYSPSC and NYSERDA to answer questions.

Besides the exhibits there will be daily seminars given by industry experts including a special seminar on “how to save energy money in your home”, given by Lee Loomis of NYSERDA’s Energy Smart program. In addition this year Jim Salmon, Host of WHAM’s Home Repair Clinic will be appearing on Saturday and Sunday to answer all your home improvement questions.

Visitors to the show will have a chance to win a big screen TV compliments of Direct Buy and many other door prizes and giveaways donated by exhibitors. This year’s show will be sponsored by Family First Federal Credit Union and will help to benefit the charity CDS who will be holding a silent auction. Also a special feature of the show this year attendees will be able to bring their antiques (up to two items) to be appraised by Antiques & Old Lace for a $1.00 donation to CDS.
