Renovations, Remodels, And Resiliency

More and more of us are opting not to move on up to the McMansion of our dreams. Instead, we’re increasingly deciding to renovate and/or redecorate the home we have. In fact, American homeowners spent nearly $125 billion on home improvements in 2012 alone, a jump of almost 10% from the previous year.[1] A recent study projects that 72% of all Americans will spend an average of $4,000 on fixing and sprucing up their homes in 2013.[2] While overall housing spending may remain in decline, the home improvement market has put out the welcome mat. This motif includes a broad group of companies that are engaged in serving the home improvement and residential remodeling market. See more
