Spring is quickly approaching, so if you’re considering home improvement projects you’re probably already planning.
Expos and home shows are the best place to meet contractors and get a feel about what you want to tackle this year. You can also find other home improvement professionals, retail vendors, as well as health and beauty vendors in some cases.
RetroFoam of Michigan takes part in more than a dozen home shows and other expos throughout the year where we can talk with homeowners looking to make their homes more comfortable and energy efficient.
Below we have listed the home shows and expos we will be participating in throughout February. If you plan on attending any of these shows, make sure to stop by and say “hi.” We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have about energy efficiency with foam insulation, as well as the other numerous benefits for your home or pole barn.
