Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Maine

Who is HBRAME?

The Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Maine [HBRAME] 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.

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. (Needs some retooling)
