Win a pair of tickets to The National Homebuilding & Renovating Show, Birmingham


The National Homebuilding & Renovating Show is back at The NEC in Birmingham! This would be a great chance for home owners and builders to head to the show to meet exhibitors who are based across the country. There will be lots of products on display and it will be a great opportunity for you to see it in real life.  We think it also gives you the opportunity to get tailor made advice for you and your project. You can also book a free 15 minute one-to-one consultation with one of their experts. These sessions must be booked at the show at The Advice Centre – please make sure you arrive early to book your slot to guarantee your place as these sessions are extremely popular!  The Advice Centre comprises The Planning Clinic, Ask the Expert, Ask the Architect, Ask the Builder and Ask the Architectural Technologist areas so there is sure to be an expert at the show with the knowledge and skills to help you with your query or problem.
