Core Values & Mission

Believing that home ownership is a cornerstone of The American Dream, the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Maine [HBRAME] dedicates itself to community-building, the professional success and integrity of its members and a strong economic future for homes and housing in Maine. Our members are professionals who sign and abide by a code of ethics, embody excellence in their work and their standards, and engage at local and national levels in promoting their industry.  They stay abreast of trends that affect it.

They learn and work both on the cutting edge of technology and in time-honored ways.

From green building to modular, log and timber-frame homes, they uphold the strictest performance guidelines in building. In addition, they take an active role in advancing the goals of HBRAME, through support of other members, promotion, education and advocacy.

The Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Maine is a not-for-profit trade association affiliated with the National Association of Home Builders [NAHB], a national association of 150,000 members representing the residential construction industry across the United States.

We are the only trade association in Maine representing the residential construction industry that offers nationally recognized Certification Programs and federally-approved apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship training programs in the construction trades.

Our members build to the nationally recognized Uniform Building and Energy Code.

Our members come from all areas of the housing industry including residential, commercial, and industrial construction. They include renovators, remodelers, land developers, and builder/creators of single- and multi-family homes.

Our members also include industry associates such as manufacturers, suppliers, subcontractors, architects, engineers, mortgage bankers, insurance/title companies, and attorneys.

Together we represent a leading voice in Maine’s burgeoning housing industry.
