DULUTH -- It's never too early to get ideas for springtime repairs and improvements around the house.

Friday through Sunday, the North Atlanta Home Show returns to the Gwinnett Center with new product introductions, live radio broadcasts, demonstrations and educational presentations.

The annual show features more than 150 experts in the home remodeling and landscaping industries showcasing the latest services and products available on the market.

"The North Atlanta Home Show offers homeowners and future homeowners an ideal environment to see new products, talk to the experts and comparison shop all under one roof," said Michael Schoppenhorst, director of the North Atlanta Home Show. "Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and talk to the experts about their particular home remodeling goals."

Besides the flashy new products on the market, there are also plenty of guest speakers, including HGTV's Tonya M. Williams of "Designed to Sell" and "Bang for your Buck." She presents "As the Real Estate World Turns: Exploring Current Trends" at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Walter Reeves and Dave Baker of 95.5 FM and AM 750 News/Talk WSB are broadcasting "The Lawn and Garden Show" and "The Home Fix-It Show" live from the event Saturday. Reeves also has an appearance at 1 p.m. Friday for his program "Garden Disasters and How to Avoid Them."

Tickets are available for purchase at the Gwinnett Center box office on the days of the event.
