Top Reasons Why You Should Attend a Home Show

Home shows are big business in North America, with every major city hosting multiple each year – and there is good reason for their popularity. Home shows are a great place for homeowners to check out products and service providers that are specifically relevant to their home upkeep and renovation needs. Home shows are also an essential destination for those planning on building a home. If you’re still not convinced, check out these top reasons why people attend home shows:

Staying up to date on trends and technology: Exhibiting companies are bringing their A-game to stand out from their competition. Home shows are often used as platforms to launch new products or services and create buzz. Attendees are not only some of the first to know about fresh ideas, but can often score discounts and samples.

Saving money:  A sales tactic commonly used in all industries is creating a sense of urgency, one way that many home show exhibitors do this is by offering “show specials”. This is usually a discount or freebie in exchange for signing up for a consultation/quote or purchasing a product. If you’re ready to buy, taking advantage of this sales tactic is a great hack to get the best bang for your buck.

Comparing best options: There are hundreds of exhibitors at each home show, with multiple companies within each category. You can get an excellent understanding of the level of professionalism and expertise of a company from meeting their personnel face to face. This gives valuable piece-of-mind when spending significant amounts of money on renovations or other home projects.  

Getting expert advice: There is no other place with such a concentration of qualified home service professionals who are specifically there to answer your questions. This is a perfect opportunity to ask a pro about products, pricing, trends, and tips. For example, if you’re planning a deck renovation you could ask various deck builders about vinyl decking versus composite decking, warranties, cost, and the practicality of doing it yourself versus hiring someone. You will come out of the show with a budget and some top picks of installers.

Helpful Products: Recognizable products such as Vitamix and Oxyclean have often been found at home shows, but there are also tons of new and upcoming products that may blow your mind. You can find anything that a homeowner could possibly need – and probably things you had no idea you needed. Remote control dishwasher? Slippers that are also mops? Indestructible glassware? Yes, please.

Entertainment: From regional celebrities to HGTV big names, larger shows tout some real star power.  Show organizers arrange book signings, presentations, competitions, and other celebrity-studded and family-friendly attractions. Attendees can check out the show schedule to plan what day and time to show up and see the stars.

Giveaways: So. Many. Giveaways. From trips, to products, to services, there are countless draws to be entered – Better wear your lucky socks!

There is something for everyone at a home show. Get your friends together and make an afternoon of the next one in your city, just make sure to wear comfy shoes!

Testimonials

  • I had Citywide Sundecks replace the 28 year old Duradeck sheeting with the similar material on my sundeck. The job was completed in one and a half days to my complete satisfaction. The deck looks like new with all the joints and seams glued and heat treated to ensure maximum waterproofing. Stainless steel screws were used throughout in reinstalling the original aluminum railings and stairs to ensure longevity and improved appearances. When the job was completed the installers cleaned up the work site. I was impressed and pleased with this Citywide crew. They were professional.

    Stephen – Richmond

  • We had our hot tub and sundeck replaced this summer. Citywide Sundecks did a wonderful job of the vinyl deck. The installation was complicated by the fact that the hot tub was sunk into the deck and the glass railings had to be removed and replaced. The job was done in a timely manner with great efficiency. We truly appreciated the skill of the workmanship, the attention to detail and the concern for aesthetics.

    McBride – Coquitlam

  • Paul and his team did excellent work with attention to detail. The work was done quickly and we are very happy with the result.

  • We were very surprised when we were told that they were able to start working on the project within a week of us signing our contract. We were kept updated of progress and appreciated being contacted by Paul to see how they were doing and if we had any questions. The work was completed quickly and efficiently. The fellows who did the work were friendly and cleaned up after they had finished for the day. We were very happy and have referred them to our friends.

    Courtland C. – Delta

  • Paul and his crew were hired to rebuild a terrible deck that was built last year. Citywide Sundecks isn’t the cheapest, but they did the job right and on time, and it comes with a 10 year warranty. We should have gone with hime the first time around.

    Job P.

  • Paul and his crew did a great job of taking care of us. We had to replace a deck and deal with some water issues above and below the deck, all which was behind the stucco. This work has been completed and we are very happy. Paul and the crew kept me informed throughout. They were very easy to deal with and answered all my questions as the work progressed. All this was done at what I thought was a fair price.

    Andy S. – Surrey

  • Very happy with our Duradek job.  It was installed exactly as discussed and Paul made sure that we were completely satisfied.

    Rene B. – Vancouver

  • We are very pleased with the restoration project completed by Citywide Sundecks and Railings during the summer of 2015. The beautiful new sundeck was rebuilt in a very professional manner and the installed aluminum railings were a real upgrade on our original wooden ones. We are so glad that we contracted CWS as they were terrific to deal with and they provided quality work from start to finish.

    Bruce & Loreen S. – Richmond

  • I live in Prince George and contacted Paul at Citywide Sundecks to enquire about installing Duradek at my 85-year-old mother’s house in New Westminster. Paul kept us informed every step of the way. His crew was professional and hard working. They completed the job as agreed and ahead of schedule, even throwing in a few extras for my mum at no cost! My mother was very pleased with the outcome and happy to be enjoying her new deck.

    Leanne M. – Prince George

  • We were in a rush to get our sundeck stairs repaired. Paul was very accommodating and had the stairs replaced very quickly. The quality of work was excellent! I would highly recommend Citywide Sundecks.

    Linda & Rob M. – Delta

  • A word of thanks, for the excellent work on my sundecks, stairs, and railing. Your work was done on time and within budget. I must say it's the envy of my neighbours. They ask who did the work, and of course I tell them Citywide. The house looks great, with the new decks and stairs.

    Tony C. – Vancouver

  • We were very pleased with the deck installation performed by Citywide Sundecks.  Paul took the time to show us a recent installation he had done in our neighbourhood, which helped us to visualize how our deck would look after it was complete.  He explained how he would address deficiencies with the existing installation.  His staff were very efficient, courteous and professional.  I would recommend Citywide Sundecks.

    Stephen G. – Tsawwassen

  • I called Citywide Sundecks and Paul was at my home within two hours of my inquiry. He was professional, knowledgeable, efficient and easy to deal with. The gentleman that did the vinyl on my deck came out and completed the job in one day with no mess left behind. The whole process took less than a week from initial inquiry. I would recommend Citywide Sundecks to anyone.

    A. R. – Burnaby
