About BRAG Ann Arbor

BRAG Ann Arbor is the professional Association for the home building, remodeling and more since 1956, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. 

We provide networking opportunities, information, training and events that help businesses improve. We also help consumers make informed decisions and find the right contractors and resources for their homes and projects.

We help members cultivate their crafts and practices in our ever-changing industry and connect with professionals with differing approaches and insights.

The Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Ann Arbor presents annual events such as the Home Garden & Lifestyle Show each spring, the Parade of Homes each summer, and the Remodelers Home Tour each fall. Our members have helped build our more than just homes and neighborhoods, volunteering their skills and assets to improve our community.

We are a very welcoming group, and encourage potential members to attend one of our member events for free to see what it is all about! Contact us at 734-996-0100, email Pete Nowakowski at, or stop by during regular business hours to our office and event center at 179 Little Lake Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48103.
