The House and Home show kicks off at the SeaGate Convention Centre on Friday afternoon.
More than 150 exhibitors are showcasing trends and thousands of products for both the interior and exterior of the home.
Builders will also be present to discuss plans to build that dream house.
Over the years, vendors have seen more and more people visiting the event, which is a good sign that the industry is leveling out of the recession.
"Percentage wise, it has been growing. From 2008, 2009, all the way up to 2012, and now into 2013, already we've seen a drastic growth in roofing, in siding, and windows are right behind that," said Brad Nietz with Champion Window.
With so many options available, visitors may get overwhelmed or confused, so Champion Window is handing out a "Home and Garden Survival Guide." The guide gives a list of what visitors should bring and questions to ask. To streamline the process, Champion recommends bringing photos of the area you want to improve, having measurements written down and preparing a budget.
The show runs from 3-8 p.m. Friday. Saturday hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
