Our mission is to build a better area housing industry through promotion, advocacy and education.
The Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association (CVHBA) is a non-profit trade association representing the home building industry in the Chippewa Valley. As a membership-based organization, we serve members in all aspects of the home building and remodeling industry including: builders, subcontractors, financing, title work, marketing, insurance and other professional services. The CVHBA provides opportunities for members to build connections, market their business, and save money. In addition, the CVHBA is commited to connecting with area youth with opportunities in the skilled trades, advocating on home building and housing issues and being a resource for area homeowners.
Whether building a new home, remodeling an existing home or needing a home service, the CVHBA should be your first stop! If you aren't sure who to contact, our staff are happy to help you connect you to area businesses. All of our members go through an application process that includes reference checks, proof of business insurance and all Builder Members must have a Dwelling Contractor license. We can also answer questions and provide information for the public on a wide range of topics. Visit our blog for information on a variety of home projects.
In 2022 we celebrated 50 years of impacting the home building and remodeling industry in the Chippewa Valley and helping thousands of homeowners achieve the dream of home ownership. Check out this fantastic video (sponsored by Brooks Home Renovations) with just a few of our highlights from the past 50 years.

"The Natural Touch Landscaping has been a member of the CVHBA since 2009. One of our largest benefits is participating in the annual Home & Garden Show. We have access to thousands of people in one weekend where we can show case our services, lead seminars and network with other trades. The show always runs smoothly and professionally thanks to the incredible staff at CVHBA."

"Signature Homes has been a Contractor Member of the CVHBA since 1999. The Parade of Homes has been a fantastic marketing opportunity for us to show the caliber of homes we build year after year. Recently we have been using the ongoing Contractor Education Events to earn credits to meet State of Wisconsin licensing and enjoy the benefit of doing that at no cost. We are also able to send prospective clients to the CVHBA when we are not able to take on their project or it’s not the right fit for us. We’ve also had the CVHBA forward prospective clients our way as well. We plan to continue our Membership and encourage others to join when we’ve been asked about joining the CVHBA."

"As a homebuilder and a longtime member of the Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association, I’ve seen the value of membership first hand. While there are many benefits with membership, including the Home & Garden Show and Parade of Homes, I especially like the networking opportunities such as 'Builder After Hours'."
