About the Professional Remodelers Organization
The Professional Remodelers Organization (PRO) of the Home Builders Association of Metropolitan Portland consists of the area’s top remodelers, subcontractors and suppliers who work together to promote quality and professionalism in the home remodeling industry. In the past 10 years, the council has grown to over 200 members and currently is the third largest in the United States.
“Our members take pride in their craft, have years of experience in the field and are knowledgeable about the newest and most innovative products on the market,” said Steve Stolze, owner of SLS Custom Homes and Remodeling and 2013 Professional Remodelers Organization chairman. “One of the big reasons our group continues growing fast is that we are committed to ethical business conduct and we encourage our membership to invest in training and education.”
The National Home Builders Association estimates that Americans spent $117 billion in home remodeling in 2012. Remodeling accounts for 2 percent of the US economy and 40 percent of all residential construction.
Each spring, the PRO produces the Tour of Remodeled Homes, which showcases the top remodeling projects in the area. They also are active participants in the Home Builder Association’s Spring and Fall Home and Garden Shows, and several fundraising events throughout the year to support local charities. They support charities like the Home Builders Foundation, which creates shelter opportunities for the disadvantaged and provides educational opportunities for future generations of industry professionals.
The Organization has been recognized nationally for its energy, commitment to the industry, dedication to the community and government affairs efforts. To date, the Organization has won 13 prestigious Council Awards for Demonstrating Remodeling Excellence, the highest national honor any Professional Remodelers Organization can receive. Category wins include Outstanding Community Service Project, Outstanding Member Services and Education and Outstanding Public Relations and Promotion Program.
