The Wisconsin Builders Association has a 70-year history of protecting the American Dream.
What We Do


  • We advocate the interests of 4,000 home building industry members at the state legislative level, resulting in improved laws and regulations that keep housing affordable for Wisconsin families.

Education & Philanthropy

  • Through our philanthropic arm, the Wisconsin Builders Foundation, we offer training, scholarships, and charitable resources to improve residential construction in Wisconsin.

Support Members

  • Our members receive exclusive access to a variety of useful and complimentary resources that support their business and interests, including construction & remodeling contracts and forms, a member hotline for legal, building code, and safety questions, and a variety of R-O-I affinity partner discounts on anything from building materials to small business coaching services to insurance and travel. We also make accessing these benefits easy, and are proud to have recently received the 2017 Best Website Award through NAHB's Association Excellence Awards program.

Empower Homeowners

  • Both builders and homeowners deserve the proper resources and rights to build their dreams. We provide informational and educational resources that consumers can rely upon to guide them through the home building process.
