)-- Home Improvement & Design Expo – The Diplomat West Banquets
Who goes to a home show in the middle of a recession? Smart, savings-minded homeowners, that’s who. And that’s why more than 70 exhibitors will be on hand at the Home Improvement & Design Expo, to be held at The Diplomat West Banquets, on September 5, 2009.
Sponsored by Brilliant Event Planning, this will be Elmhurst’s second Home Show Event. Admission is free, parking is free, information and inspiration are free. If you like saving money or want to add value to your #1 asset, this is the ideal time to go to a home show. Consider this:
There may never be bigger bargains on home improvements. Contractors, hungry for work, are cutting bids to keep their crews busy. And thanks to the recession, the market for some luxury items—like granite countertops—has plummeted, so there are great deals to be found. Plus, exhibitors often offer generous discounts exclusively to home show attendees.
Under The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, homeowners can get a federal tax credit for qualifying energy-efficient home improvements, including windows, doors, roofing, insulation, HVAC, water heaters, and more. It’s a double savings, because homeowners not only get the tax break, but reduce their utility expenses. But the tax credit expires in 2010, so homeowners must act soon.
It’s a chance for homeowners to learn, for free. See what’s new…pick the experts’ brains about your project…pick up helpful tips from complimentary demos, including healthy cooking demonstrations. In addition, attendees can enter to win drawing prizes, including gift cards, gift baskets, and big savings on services, including a $250 discount on new windows.
And while you’re getting ideas for improving your home, you can help stock the pantry of a less-fortunate neighbor. This year, the need for local food relief has increased 25%, which is why the Hunger Task Force will be collecting non-perishable food donations at the event.
The home show will be held at The Diplomat West Banquets, 681 W. North Ave. Elmhurst IL 60126. Hours are: Saturday 9 am-6 pm. For more information, visit, www.HomeShowEvent.com.
