Industry: Construction

Press Release Summary: Studies show an expected 13% increase in spending over 2007
and anticipate a continual increase for years to come

Press Release Body: As Americans look to spend record amounts on home renovation and
remodeling, they are relying on credible, licensed, professional home designers and
builders to meet their needs. Home improvements for home expansion and lifestyle
improvements, as well as investment benefits, are key reasons for strong growth
trends in home improvement spending.

It is expected that American's will spend over $11,000 on home improvements and
repairs, on average, in 2008. This is a 13 percent increase over spending during
2007. This trend is expected to continue through 2015. A struggling housing market
is a strong contributor to renewed interest in remodeling. Many home owners are
choosing to create the homes they want and invest in their own homes during a time
when home building supplies are available at low costs due to low demand for new
building construction.

Home Sweet Home Improvements is a Certified General Contractor with a Class "A"
License who serves the Northern Piedmont region of Virginia. \"Our mission is
creating new living spaces and providing our clients with the highest possible
remodeling quality and service, while providing a wonderful remodeling experience,\"
says Home Sweet Home Improvements founder and owner Tom Wotton. \"For us, remodeling
and building is a great experience with each new project.\"

While there are many do-it-yourself types attempting to perform their own home
improvements, there are many professional home remodeling companies developing great
expertise in various niche markets. In addition to general contractor licensing,
many professional builders have credentials in plumbing, electric work, and more.
An ability to perform all necessary work is beneficial when hiring a builder.

One unique reason behind the strong growth in home improvement spending is an
increase in specialized programs targeting specific home owners. Advanced
certification programs for the aging population, for instance, help develop builders
specifically trained to renovate homes to meet the particular living needs of this
market segment. Certified Aging-in-Place is one such program that serves the needs
of an older population at high risk for home based injuries.

At some point the housing market will stabilize and return to normal growth. In the
meantime, home improvement continues to gain momentum. Many home owners are
choosing to avoid the hassle of selling and moving to get the home they want. Well
done home improvements in key rooms in the home are a great investment right now and
offer great return for future resale.
