The Expo has partnered the New Orleans affiliate of Rebuilding Together and National Roofing Contractors Association’s (NRCA) Community Service and Disaster Relief Fund Committee, for a home renovation and revitalization project on five homes in the Hollygrove neighborhood of New Orleans, located in the city's 7th Ward: 2542 Hamilton Street, 9145 Colapissa Street, 3628 Mistletoe Street, 9317 Apricot Street and 2509-11 Eagle Street.

A special thanks to:

  • Overall sponsor — Sika Sarnafil, for making a significant financial donation. Sika Sarnafil will be in booth #2311 at the Expo.
