Remodeling group publishes guide for homeowners

Thinking of remodeling your home? If the answer is yes, you might want to get a copy of Remodeling in Maryland, a 32-page magazine published by the Remodelors Council of the Home Builders Association of Maryland.

The pamphlet guides readers through the remodeling process from deciding on the right project to setting up a budget, selecting a contractor and coping with the construction phase.

It also includes a list of 24 provisions that should be included in every remodeling contract and a list of qualified remodelers and associates in Maryland.

"We worked very hard to create a publication that gave consumers a realistic overview of remodeling," said Ron Nodine, council president.

Copies of Remodeling in Maryland may be ordered by calling the Home Builders Association of Maryland at 410-265-7400.
