Our study explores how homeowners prepare for their upcoming projects, budget, find and select their preferred professional. Last year, we conducted our annual survey before the disruption and loss caused by the COVID-19 pandemic was fully realized. Over the past 14 months, our home improvement industry has adapted in numerous ways. Our latest report highlights how homeowner trends have changed, year over year. These findings are designed to help professional contractors and remodelers better understand and serve prospective customers.
