About Us

In 1945, the HBA was born out of a need for government representation dealing with housing material and supply quotas. Only through collective action could individual problems be resolved, thus the need for local builders to band together and affiliate with the newly formed state and national associations.

The HBA was charted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the Ohio Home Builders Association (OHBA) to represent the counties of Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana, forming the HBA of the Valley.

In the HBA's first 25 years, housing became the priority of the industry as the baby boomer generation began; builders scurried to meet the demands of returning veterans and their needs for new housing. Since then the HBA has served its membership by promoting proactive involvement on issues and legislation impacting the residential building industry, wetlands, affordable housing, quality construction practices, consumer education and community service projects.

In the almost 75 years since the birth of the HBA, remarkable changes have come to the builders and remodelers who serve the Valley. HBA members stay up-to-date on the latest products, regulations and building techniques to make your project a success.

The HBA of the Valley currently educates the consumer through our annual Home & Garden Show, Housing Awards of Excellence Program and continues to be the most reputable source for quality home improvement companies.
