Filed in Remodeling by on May 2, 2016 1 Comment

Whole house remodels and additions are regaining market share, according to a new survey of remodelers released today to kick off May’s National Home Remodeling Month. Released by NAHB Remodelers, the survey revealed the most common projects in 2016 compared to results of previous surveys.

“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,” said 2016 NAHB Remodelers Chair Tim Shigley, CAPS, CGP, GMB, GMR.

In the survey, remodelers reported that the following projects were more common than in 2013:

  • Whole house remodels, which increased by 10%
  • Room additions, 12%
  • Finished basements, 8%
  • Bathroom additions, 7%

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 companies, while 79% reported the same for kitchen remodels. Window and door replacements decreased to 36% from 45% in 2014.

    Thanks for sharing these results. It’s good to see remodels other than the kitchen and bathroom making their way back up. I’m interested to see if anything in particular caused the significant decrease in window and door replacements or if it just happened to go down that much within two years.
