The Wichita Area Builders Association was formed in 1951 to be a leading advocate for affordable housing. Our members are qualified professionals, credentialed and credible, bound by a strict code of ethics.
Make WABA your starting place for the place you call home.
Selecting a New Home Builder
Are you shopping for a new home? Start by shopping for a professional builder first. Whether you are buying a townhouse, a detached home in a subdivision, or a custom-built house, the construction quality of your new home will be determined by the quality of your builder. Start your builder-search process at the Wichita Area Builders Association.
Selecting a Home Remodeler
Turn your home into your dream home without moving. Turn to a qualified WABA Remodeler who has the knowledge, experience, and skills to lead your remodeling project. You can trust that these WABA professionals have integrity – legally compliant, properly licensed and insured, adhering to a strict Code of Ethics. Contact WABA for a list of respected remodelers that match up with your specific building needs.
WABA provides special events throughout the year to help you, the consumer, make the right decision when buying a home, building a new home, or remodeling your existing home.
Parade of Homes
This three-weekend event every spring and fall provides an exceptional opportunity for everyone interested in home ownership: a free tour of dozens of new homes across the metro area. Parade of Homes offers an opportunity to see what’s trending in new home construction – a parade of the latest in home designs and features.
The annual WABA Home Show is the largest product show in Kansas with more than 300 exhibitors. If you’re looking to build, renovate, or decorate your home, this is where you will find a showcase of the latest and greatest “all things home”.
WABA collaborates with other local service providers to be a catalyst for affordable, life-changing shelter needs in the community.
Builders Care Foundation
The Home Builders Care Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to fulfilling its mission to provide and promote education and educational opportunities regarding home ownership, home construction, home safety, and related issues through gifts, grants, and contributions to other charitable and community service organizations.
As builders, we can do good in our communities by doing something we are good at. By leveraging our building industry’s specialized skills, we help provide construction education and shelter for those in need.
The Vision of the Association is to achieve and sustain recognition throughout the community that the Wichita Area Builders Association and its members are “the” organization to turn to when one has a new housing, remodeling or other light construction related need.
The Mission of the Association is to enhance the image of Association members as professionals within the housing, remodeling, and light construction industry, and the leading advocates for affordability in housing and light construction.
