Why Use a HBA Member?

  • They are Leaders in the Home Building Industry – Whether it’s their commitment to best practices, continuing education, and community involvement, HBA members set the bar for many within the industry. Several HBA members have taken the time to earn a professional designation. A designation establishes credibility in a specialty, highlights an interest for a particular building area, or shows dedication that distinguishes that individual in their trade. In addition, many HBA members take time to give back to their community from simple ramp builds and supply drives to building and remodeling homes for families in need.
  • They are Professionals in the Community – Like membership in any professional trade association, membership in the HBA is voluntary. A company that chooses to become an involved member of the HBA believes in high industry standards. Usually members of the HBA are also involved with an additional volunteer effort such as a charity or community group.
  • They are Committed to Professional Development - Member who take the time to and the relationships of those around them. When choosing a building industry professional, a possible consideration is their professional designation. A designation, recognized throughout the industry, can help distinguish an individual, establish credibility in a specialty, highlight an interest for a particular building area, or show dedication to their trade.
