HBAV Rebate Program
The HBAV Member Rebate Program has been a success for builder and remodeler members who take advantage of it. This free member benefit currently has more than 50 manufacturers offering builder and remodeler members a rebate, regardless of your volume.
Please click here to see each manufacturer’s page, which contains a description of the rebate program offered, what is needed in order to claim it and a section called “Manufacturer Switch.”
If you are ever interested in switching to one of our manufacturer brands, simply complete the information asked and we can have a manufacturer salesperson offer their best front-end price. And, of course, you would receive a rebate through the Member Rebate Program as well. It must also be noted that you still DO NOT have to switch – this is simply an opportunity to maximize your bottom line! The participating manufacturers in the Member Rebate Program have proven their commitment to you and our association. Please consider these companies when choosing products for your next home.
HBAV INSIGHTS Magazine offers builder and remodeler members insights into both the Member Rebate Program and the manufacturers participating in this member benefit.
