HBA unites home building professionals

join-the-hba_24_2472787355Imagine a juxtaposed group of home-improving, hardworking individuals joining hands and combining their strengths to educate the community about all things in the home building and remodeling world.

You may be thinking, “This harmonious group of professionals surely does not exist.” Think again, ladies and gentlemen!

The Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest Illinois, or HBA as it is well known, is a melting pot of local home builders, remodelers and designers that Custom Floors is proud to be a part of. This year at 19th Annual Installation of Officers & Industry Awards Banquet, the HBA installed their 2017 officers, directors and president. One of CFM’s key salespersons, Joel Keel, was reelected to the Board of Directors for the third year in a row. (We are proud of you, Joel!) Other officials elected to the HBA Board come from Fulford Homes, Fulford Home Remodeling and Padgett Building & Remodeling Co, companies which CFM is lucky enough to work with. Congratulations to all of the newly installed officers. We would also like to give a big shout out to longtime business partner David Padgett of Padgett Building & Remodeling for being elected this year’s president!

McDermott Remodeling Contractors; Kappert Construction Company, LF & Son Construction; and Pace Design & Construction. It is comforting to see how many organizations are dedicated to developing our region! Thank you all for your continued business and hard work.

At the banquet, the HBA also awarded the Remodelers of Distinction Awards. Fulford Home Remodeling won the Judge’s Choice award and J.T. McDermott Remodeling Contractors won the President’s Choice award. The winners of the other categories include J.T. McDermott Remodeling Contractors (for basement renovation), Padgett Building & Remodeling (for kitchen renovation) and Fulford Home Remodeling (for bathroom renovation). Great job to all of you! We are so blessed to do business with such distinguished organizations.


A highlight of the HBA’s efforts is the annual Home Show, which is Friday March 3rd from 2 p.m. – 7 p.m.; Saturday, March 4th, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.; and Sunday, March 5th from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Belleville Fairgrounds. (For more information, visit www.hbaswil.org.)
