The following comments about the Royal Oak Dream Home Expo were received from Royal Oak residents who attended past year's Expos, as well as, exhibitors and sponsors of the event:
"The best thing home owners can do is to have a plan for what improvements they want to make to their homes. I recommend they try to attend as many home shows as they can.
Home owners need to be current with the industry's newest improvement products and ideas for enriching their life-style. Many home owners realize their biggest jewel is their home. An important way to enrich your life-style is to attend community home shows put on by contractors in your home town."
