17 Most Popular Remodeling Projects

Well here’s some interesting information on popular remodeling projects. This information is presented courtesy of the National Association of Realtors, and is taken from “Remodeling in 2016: Kitchens Reclaim Top Spot From Baths” – National Association of Home Builders’ Eye on Housing Blog, May 5, 2017.

Keep in mind this is American information and may differ somewhat from Canada, but none of the items seem to me to be related to warm climate countries so I suspect it may be a fairly accurate representation of Canadian renovation projects also.

  • Kitchen remodeling: 81%
  • Bathroom remodeling: 80%
  • Whole-house remodeling: 53%
  • Room additions: 45%
  • Windows/door replacement: 36%
  • Finished basement: 27%
  • Repairing property damage: 27%
  • Decks: 25%
  • Bathroom additions: 24%
  • Roofing: 23%
  • Enclosed/added porch: 23%
  • Handyman services: 22%
  • Siding: 19%
  • Second story additions: 16%
  • Enclosed/added garage: 12%
  • Historic preservation: 9%
  • Finished attic: 7%

What the NAHB survey found most interesting is the 53% of folks who undertook “Whole House Remodeling”.

It is also the first time since 2006 that more than half the respondents cited anything other than kitchens and bathrooms as common remodeling projects.
