Are you ready to explore a new exterior remodeling project to protect and beautify your home, but not sure where to begin? Pick the brains of local contractors and suppliers this weekend at the 2014 Home + Garden Show.

Brad and Matt at the 2014 Home + Garden ShowIowans can find anything and everything at the Home + Garden Show with everyone from designers, builders and remodelers to cooks, chiropractors and landscaping companies tooling around at the Iowa Events Center.

This year’s celebrity infused show features appearances by “Extreme Makeover” star Ty Pennington at noon Friday and Frank Fritz with “American Pickers” from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday on the Lifestyle Stage. A butterfly garden and Marketplace Events $600 sweepstakes are also being promoted as part of this year’s show.

Once you’ve had your fill of lawnmowers, grills and informative vegetable-slicing demonstrations, why not slide over to Aisle 200 near the Inspiration Stage and ask VanWeelden Co. about that new roof, deck or siding you’ve been dreaming of?

Find us in Booth #214 and we’ll be happy to share what we know about the elegance of shake or slate roofing systems designed by DaVinci Roofscapes, the Owens Corning line of TruDefinition asphalt roofing shingles with SureNail technology, James Hardie siding with ColorPlus technology, or the ultra-scratch-and-stain-resistant decking surfaces manufactured by TimberTech.

VanWeelden Co. is a proud exhibitor of the Home + Garden Show and looks forward to talking a little shop and helping homeowners answer questions this weekend about the installation of these and other fine construction materials. Speaking of questions, don’t forget to ask us about our winter roofing discount on projects scheduled to start by April 1, 2014.
