Larger Remodeling Projects Trending Up
Whole house remodels and additions are regaining market share according to a 2016 survey of remodelers released by NAHB Remodelers, the remodeling arm of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The survey revealed the most common remodeling projects in 2016, compared to historical results of the survey.
“While bathroom and kitchen remodels remain the most common renovations, basements, whole house remodels and both large and small scale additions are returning to levels not seen since prior to the downturn,” stated the 2016 NAHB Remodelers Chairperson. “Clients want to add more space, but remodeling a significant portion of the home is no easy feat. That’s why it is important to work with a professional remodeler who has the integrity and expertise to take on these large remodeling jobs.”
Remodelers reported that the following projects were more common than in 2013:
• Whole house remodels increased by 10 percentage points
• Room additions increased by 12 percentage points
• Finished basements increased by 8 percentage points
• Bathroom additions increased by 7 percentage points
Bathrooms topped the list of most common remodeling projects for the fifth time since 2010. Eighty-one percent of remodelers reported that bathrooms were a common remodeling job for their company while 79 percent of remodelers reported the same for kitchen remodels. Window and door replacements decreased to 36 percent from 45 percent in 2014.
