Here are some reasons Builders all over the country are participating in Member Rebate Program
We have been participating in the Member Rebate Program for several years and enjoy receiving rebates for products that we already use! Our rebates are typically several hundred dollars a quarter and it is easy to do. You are missing out if you are a member and not participating in this great member benefit!”
David Belman, Belman Homes (WI)
For a small investment in time, it’s well worth applying for the rebate. My rebates average about $900 per quarter. And once you apply the first time, you look forward to doing it again - especially when you receive that check. In one year, the amount that I get back through this rebate program is more than triple what I spend on membership dues.”
John Ainslie, The Ainslie Group (VA)
I had no idea the amount of money I was leaving behind each quarter. It is really nice having this check to look forward to four times a year. Thanks!”
Jordan Wheatley, Jordan Wheatley Custom Homes (TX)

I have personally recruited 3 new members into the local HBA using this rebate program as an added incentive last quarter. How can anyone argue free rebates if you’re already a member.” Bill Clipse, Meander Homes Construction Inc. (OH) What a great program! It's so easy to use and get money back from manufacturers for using products. All members should sign up for this program. It not only benefits the member but also the Local & State HBA.” Frank Krause, Krause Construction (SD) For the $1,138 we received in rebates, it has been well worth it. I just sent the application to my subcontractors who had the products in our homes and let them fill it out. I then simply compiled all of the info and sent it in.” Tom Schaefer, Signature Homes (WI) The HBA Rebate Program is truly an added benefit and we have been excited to have received almost $20,000 since the inception of the program. This is simple to complete and allows us to keep with our mission of quality construction on-time and within the budget!” Jessica Scheurich, Keller Development, Inc. (IN)

CLOPAY’S COACHMAN ® COLLECTION DOORS
In today’s marketplace, new home buyers will judge a home by its exterior. And if they don’t like what they see on the outside, they may never see the inside. As a result, garage doors have taken center stage due to their impact on a home’s curb appeal, the variety of design options and perceived overall value of the home. Low-cost garage door design upgrades can have a significant impact on a home’s curb appeal, and consequently, a home buyer’s first impression. BETTER CURB APPEAL MEANS…
MATTER first impressions we believe
n Better Selling Price and Margins n Increased Home Buyer Satisfaction
DESIGNS TO COMPLEMENT ANY ARCHITECTURAL STYLE AND BUDGET
Boosting curb appeal while staying within budget is easy, thanks to Clopay’s industry-leading selection of garage door designs, construction materials and insulation options.

We love using the HBA Rebate Program! It is so easy to use, the staff is very helpful, and we usually get a few hundred dollars back in rebates per quarter. I highly recommend any builder to use this program!” Meggan Brown, Elliot Homes, LLC (FL) Who doesn't like free money!? It literally takes just minutes each quarter to compile the information. If you're not using it, it's absolutely worth looking into. More than likely, you'll be able to more than cover your HBA annual membership dues with rebates on products you're already purchasing! Your local HBA also receives a little kickback when you participate - even more reason to get signed up!” Courtney Black, Permian Homes (TX) We have been using the rebate program for 3 quarters now and have received over $1,000 worth of checks for just a few short minutes of setup and submittals. The initial setup only took about 10 minutes and then each quarterly submittal takes about 5-10 minutes. After the initial setup, we found we were already using several of the products that qualified for rebates. Therefore this was essentially free money sitting out there waiting for us to grab it. I would highly recommend signing up for this program. Even if you only build a few homes a year, it's still a nice little bonus each quarter for a few minutes of effort!
MarkDisney, Disney Construction Company (NC)
It is great to get another benefit on products that we already use and trust. This pays for my local HBA membership and then some. If I had known how easy it was to obtain, I would have started long ago!" Pamela Jewell, Blenker Construction Inc. (WI)

We have loved getting what feels like free money in the mail each quarter. I love that the Homebuilders Association put this together and that it is so easy to use. It is really nice to have checks coming in... especially in these difficult times!”
Debbie Stoddard, Finer Homes (VA)
We have received well over $7,000 the past year and look forward to doing the same in the future. Initial set up was quick and easy, subsequent quarterly submittals took only minutes to complete and the checks just keep rolling in. It is not often you find suppliers willing to continuously pay you to use their products. Every home builder in Virginia should be taking advantage of this program, it’s the easiest money we ever made!”
Mike Babashanian, Boyd Homes (VA)
We have enjoyed the benefits of the NCHBA Member Rebate Program for over a year now. Submitting rebate request forms has become streamlined and painless, and our returns continue to increase each quarter. Since the Manufacturers that participate are well known, established companies, producing high-quality products, we are considering them specifically in more of our projects. These rebates, however small or large, have served to offset some of our increased operating costs in the these difficult times. The Member Rebate Program is well worth the effort it takes to participate!" Geoffrey Bowen, Princeton Builders (NC) Our experience with the Member Rebate Program has been extremely rewarding and pleasurable. Although there was a learning curve in providing the proper data, we have found the process is very easy to follow to reap the benefits. Great idea and fantastic recruitment tool for the future!” Frank Morse, Morse Homes Inc. (LA)

Why do Manufacturers want to reward me?
Do I have to change the way I do business? You don't need to! You still utilize the same Suppliers and continue conducting your business as usual.
Manufacturers recognize that the small to mid-size Builder is the largest segment of the building industry and they are rewarding those Builders with rebates through the Member Rebate Program.
Must I align with all Manufacturers?
No. However, the more Manufacturers that are used in our program will greatly increase your lump-sum rebate check!
Do I have to save my receipts?
Rebate amounts are not listed, can I find them out? As this is a free member benefit available to all active Builder & Remodeler members, we cannot disclose the specific amounts to the public. Please contact us for conservative average based on what you are using.
There are no receipts necessary to process your rebate claim. We have made the rebate program as simple as possible. Instead of receipts, we use our Manufacturer's sales people in your area to check that their products were used.
