Deck Expo Co-located with Remodeling Show’s History
Deck Expo is a trade only event focusing exclusively on the deck, porch and railing industry. Sponsored by NADRA and Professional Deck Builders Magazine, Deck Expo began in 2003, and co-located with Remodeling Show in 2009.
Remodeling Show is owned and produced by Hanley Wood and sponsored by the National Association of Homebuilders, NAHB Remodelers and Remodeling Magazine, Remodeling Show. It has been an anticipated industry event since its inception in 1991, and since that time has seen many ups and downs in the industry, several technological advances and an increased breadth and scope of building products on the market. One thing has remained consistent over the years – manufacturers continue to innovate and allow residential construction professionals to work smart and efficiently.
JLC Live is another of Hanley Wood’s excellent construction brands as the Journal of Light Construction sponsors this part of the show. The Journal of Light Construction and JLC online are excellent resources for residential construction pros and while JLC has two annual shows with JLC Live Northwest and JLC Live New England, this is the first year JLC Live participates along with the co-located Remodeling Show and Deck Expo.
