Remodeling Month<br />

Benefits of Hiring a Professional Remodeler<br />

Outweigh Doing it Yourself<br />

M<br />

ay is National Home<br />

Remodelers Month, and while<br />

we’re in the age of do-it-yourself<br />

YouTube videos, home owners reap<br />

many benefits when hiring a professional<br />

remodeler for their home renovation.<br />

According to Brad Storck, Greater Iowa<br />

City Area HBA Remodelers Council chair,<br />

experienced remodelers bring a multitude<br />

of skills and qualities to successfully<br />

execute a home remodeling project.<br />

“Professionals just do home remodeling<br />

better,” said Brad. “They not only bring<br />

advanced construction skills, but trained<br />

remodelers better manage customer<br />

service and business management to<br />

improve the remodeling experience for<br />

home owners.”<br />

What qualities do professional<br />

remodelers provide to a home<br />

renovation?<br />

n Customer Service<br />

Knowledgeable home remodelers<br />

understand that they are providing a<br />

service, not a one-size-fits-all product.<br />

Just as every home owner is an<br />

individual, each home is also unique.<br />

A professional remodeler knows how<br />

to create customized solutions for<br />

the residents and provide continuing<br />

customer support.<br />

n Business Management and Integrity<br />

Running a business well is part of<br />

the responsibilities of a professional<br />

remodeler. This includes having systems<br />

for the business, writing clear contracts,<br />

having insurance, providing warranties<br />

and more. Better business management<br />

means better service for home owners<br />

because they can rely on the remodeler to<br />

perform with integrity.<br />

n Experience<br />

Do you know what to expect when<br />

you take that wall out? A professional<br />

remodeler understands the structure of<br />

a home and is prepared for surprises<br />

behind walls. They’ve developed<br />

expertise from performing home<br />

remodels, attending trainings and are<br />

familiar with laws and regulations<br />

pertaining to home construction.<br />

n Longevity<br />

Anyone may be able to purchase a truck<br />

and some tools, but only professional<br />

remodelers have the skills to remain<br />

in business for the long haul. By<br />

understanding the practice and business<br />

of home remodeling, these professionals<br />

can manage changes in the market and<br />

return to service your home for years to<br />

come. Use the remodelers you can trust<br />

to fix problems and keep a home in good<br />

health long term.<br />

n Creativity<br />

Home remodeling frequently involves<br />

problem solving, such as maximizing<br />

existing space, strategically building<br />

additions or navigating limited budgets.<br />

Professional remodelers can help home<br />

owners manage challenges and meet their<br />

needs while staying within the budget.<br />

Experience and skills help remodelers<br />

propose choices and solutions to satisfy<br />

their customers.<br />

Bring home the benefits of hiring<br />

a professional home remodeler for<br />

your renovation. Harness their skills<br />

and knowledge to create a more<br />

comfortable home.<br />

2 ICAHBA <strong>Builders</strong> <strong>News</strong> | <strong>May</strong> <strong>2019</strong><br />

Message from the President<br />

Dear HBA Members,<br />

Spring sales are is in full swing and homes are starting<br />

to fly off the market. The 30-year mortgage interest rates<br />

are below 4 percent once again, and the local economy<br />

continues to grow<br />

adding new businesses,<br />

restaurants, grocery<br />

stores and entertainment<br />

venues. Growing up in<br />

Iowa City it was easy<br />

to take for granted how<br />

fortunate I was to live<br />

in an area with such<br />

great education, low<br />

unemployment and<br />

low crime. Even while<br />

attending and graduating<br />

from the University<br />

of Iowa, my goal was always to move away to find<br />

employment and achieve “success.” Today, with proper<br />

perspective after all these years of living in the greater Iowa<br />

City area, I am thankful for the multitude of opportunities<br />

I have had. Now, it’s my turn to impress upon younger<br />

generations what a terrific community we have in which to<br />

live and work.<br />

On the board, and in many of the member meetings, a<br />

main topic of discussion is how to recruit new workers --<br />

including ways to educate students about and encourage<br />

students to enter the building trades. Hard work and long<br />

hours are what people see, without fully understanding<br />

how personally and professionally rewarding construction<br />

work can be. I painted houses every summer during high<br />

school and part of college with John A. Cress Painting.<br />

At that time, most trim (and many wood windows) were<br />

stained and finished on site after framing. That meant I was<br />

able to watch the construction process from beginning to<br />

end and see the various trades working together as a team<br />

despite their different jobs. I saw everyone’s role, including<br />

how the general contractor orchestrates the entire project.<br />

Our Vocational Training Council, the Student-Built<br />

House leaders and various Kirkwood programs are to be<br />

commended for their efforts to educate and drive more<br />

young people into the homebuilding trades. The recent<br />

Build My Future event is a perfect example of this (see<br />

pages 4-5). There is no better way to learn than hands on.<br />

No matter how smart or talented you are, everyone can<br />

learn from a mentor. Not only are we fortunate to live in<br />

the area that we do, but our organization is fortunate to<br />

have many members sharing their time and knowledge.<br />

For that we say “Thank You!”<br />

Sincerely,<br />

Mike Bails<br />

HBA-Linked Professionals Named<br />

Women of Influence Winners<br />

One Greater Iowa City Area HBA member and another close ally to our association<br />

have been named two of 10 honorees for the <strong>2019</strong> Corridor Business Journal’s Women<br />

of Influence awards during a dinner ceremony April 4 at the DoubleTree by Hilton<br />

Cedar Rapids Convention Complex. The recognition identifies women who have<br />

made a difference in the corridor and are representative role models as leaders in their<br />

fields and community.<br />

HBA-member Patrice Carroll is President and CEO for ImOn Communications. She<br />

launched the company in 2007 and has grown it from 35 to 115 employees and more<br />

than 17,500 customers. Patrice also serves on multiple boards and committees for<br />

community organizations focused on her passion for the arts, education and local<br />

economic development. Among them are the Theatre Cedar Rapids Board of Directors<br />

and the Junior Achievement of Eastern Iowa Regional Executive Board.<br />

“It is an incredible honor to be selected as a <strong>2019</strong> Woman of Influence. I would not<br />

even have been noticed, let alone been selected for this honor if not for ImOn’s<br />

success and the amazing people that played a role in that success. Their passion and<br />

commitment to serving our customers and communities are what allow me – and<br />

inspire me – to do the things I do.”<br />

Tracey Achenbach is housing director for the East Central Iowa Council of<br />

Governments and an HBA friend. She was instrumental in securing a grant for our<br />

2018 Student-Built House initiative. As a community developer and housing planner,<br />

Tracey has administered a variety of federal and state grants and worked with many<br />

different communities in assisting them with the development of affordable housing<br />

or writing housing plans.<br />

“I do what I do, because I love it and not because I want to be recognized,” said Tracey.<br />

“I am honored to have received this award with so many accomplished women.”<br />

Members Have Fun, Learn Important<br />

First Aid/CPR Skills at Training Class<br />

Twenty-six Greater Iowa City Area HBA members had some laughs and got twoyear<br />

certifications during our CPR/First Aid Training education class March 27.<br />

PSC Distribution hosted members who learned how to treat everything from a<br />

simple sprain to a serious emergency. They also mastered one- and two-rescuer<br />

CPR techniques and how to use an automated external defibrillator. National Safety<br />

Training Service provided and led the course.<br />

“I signed up for the class because I believe everyone needs to have some knowledge<br />

of both CPR and First Aid. Having a husband, two married children and five<br />

grandchildren, I feel any training can only help if an emergency arises personally or<br />

professionally,” said Patricia Litton, IT manager with PSC Distribution. “Thank you<br />

HBA for providing such classes to members.”<br />

Greiner Buildings Takes Home Four<br />

National Frame <strong>Builders</strong> Awards<br />

The Greater Iowa City Area HBA is proud of Greiner Buildings for earning two first<br />

place and as many second place 2018 Building of the Year awards from the National<br />

Frame <strong>Builders</strong> Association (NFBA) last March in Louisville, Ky. Their first-place<br />

wins were for Remodeled/Retrofitted Building and Livestock Building. Second-place<br />

accolades were for Residential Garage and Hobby Garage.<br />

Build My Future Gives Students Hands-on Constr<br />

Steps were taken April 2 to shrink<br />

the home-building industry’s skilled<br />

workforce gap thanks to our inaugural<br />

Build My Future-ACE Career Day &<br />

Industry Showcase. The event, hosted by<br />

the ACE Sector Board, was held at Jones<br />

Hall on the Cedar Rapids Kirkwood<br />

Community College campus. Sponsors<br />

were Hills Bank, The Greater Iowa City<br />

Area HBA’s Vocational Training Council,<br />

The Greater Cedar Rapids HBA and<br />

Kirkwood Community College.<br />

A total of 153 7th- and 8th-grade students<br />

from nine different junior highs or middle<br />

schools in three Eastern Iowa counties<br />

busily learned construction-trade skills<br />

through 15 interactive, hands-on exhibits.<br />

Volunteers from HBA-member companies<br />

directed and inspired the kids. The fun<br />

included hammering nails for roofing<br />

carpentry, piecing together plumbing,<br />

operating heavy equipment, building a<br />

wall with brick and mortar, drywalling<br />

and more. Students also heard about<br />

architecture and engineering careers<br />

during educational sessions and stepped<br />

inside a tiny house.<br />

“I liked that we got to do a bunch<br />

of things in different areas,” said<br />

Kennady Breitfelder, an 8th-grader from<br />

Springville. Her classmate Emerson<br />

Ripple’s favorite thing was the tiny<br />

house. “It was interesting and reduces<br />

space,” she said.<br />

Learning about the construction trade in<br />

this way shows students early in their<br />

schooling an alternative path to a fouryear<br />

college degree and lets them testdrive<br />

different careers. “Informing kids<br />

while they’re in junior high allows them<br />

time to learn more about the field, find<br />

what peaks their interests and explore<br />

throughout high school how it can be a<br />

viable choice for them,” said ACE Sector<br />

Board member Tim Ruth of McCreedy-<br />

Ruth Construction, whose company<br />

taught kids how to build housing frames<br />

at the event.<br />

The Iowa City-Cedar Rapids area<br />

Build My Future is one of four such<br />

events being held across Iowa this<br />

Spring. Others are through the Quad<br />

Cities Home <strong>Builders</strong> and Remodelers<br />

Association; HBA of Greater Des Moines<br />

and HBA of Greater Siouxland. Materials<br />

– including photos and video – from<br />

the four showcases will be used to put<br />

together a tool kit for HBAs nationwide<br />

to implement similar events, thanks to<br />

a grant from the National Association<br />

of Home <strong>Builders</strong> National Housing<br />

Endowment.<br />

Volunteers on Tipton Habitat House<br />

Construction hats off to Sueppel’s Siding & Remodeling for volunteering at the Iowa<br />

Valley Habitat For Humanity’s Tipton Build home March 15. Three employees were<br />

on hand to set up around the house; set starter, corner posts, channel entry doors,<br />

roofline and back gable; and run the first row around the house. The company also<br />

donated the starter siding work. “Habitat is a worthy cause and we enjoy being able<br />

to help out when we can,” said GT Karr, Sueppel’s Siding & Remodeling general<br />

manager. “It’s a good way to be involved in the community and help support it.”<br />

The house is for a mother-daughter duo named Betty and Emma.<br />

The <strong>2019</strong> Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity Tipton Build House.<br />

M&R Construction is<br />

Now Mills Custom Homes<br />

On April 1, Lone Tree-based M&R Construction became Mills Custom Homes after 19<br />

years in business. “We wanted a name and brand that better<br />

represents our focus on custom homes and unique design<br />

services,” said Designer Lindsey Mills, who in 2018 joined<br />

husband Ryan Mills – the owner and general contractor for<br />

Mills Custom Homes – to focus on design-service offerings.<br />

The company’s specialties center around providing 3D<br />

renderings to clients so they can see selections and “walk<br />

through” their home before breaking ground. Mills Custom<br />

Homes, which services the greater Iowa City area, is sponsoring the awards for our<br />

Parade of Homes this year and will have a new home on the parade.<br />

Ryan and Lindsey Mills own Mills Custom Homes, formerly known as M&R Construction.

IVHFH Women Build Breaks Ground as Women’s Council Provides Walls Support<br />

Members of The Greater Iowa City<br />

Area HBA Women’s Council built<br />

relationships while building walls<br />

at their April 4 social. The event was<br />

timed with the ground breaking of<br />

the <strong>2019</strong> Iowa Valley Habitat for<br />

Humanity (IVHFH) Doris Preucil<br />

Women Build house. Our Women’s<br />

Council participated in the ground<br />

breaking, spent the morning putting<br />

together wall frames for the home<br />

and finished with lunch. Thanks to<br />

all who participated!<br />

A cloudy day didn’t outshine the excitement felt as Nasr, Rasha and their boys<br />

Obada, Awab and Yassin – the family who will own the <strong>2019</strong> IVHFH Women Build<br />

house – joined Doris Preucil in shoveling to launch the home’s construction at 2629<br />

Blazing Star Drive in Iowa City.<br />
