What Happened in Our Industry: A Year in Review

While the top 500 contractors are hand-selected by Qualified Remodeler, note that this accomplishment was achieved during the pandemic.

Just like many other industries, we saw big changes during the pandemic. This includes a temporary product shortage involving building materials along with replacement products such as windows and doors. (PS: Our elite status allows us quick access to the exterior products that you need!

Meanwhile, 89% of homeowners invested in home improvement projects throughout the pandemic. Furthermore, A survey by Bid-on-Equipment found that 86% of homeowners chose to upgrade their exterior in some way.

According to the correlating report from Qualified Remodeler’s Top 500,  the most popular jobs for exterior remodeling are as follows:

  • Window jobs: 30%
  • Roofing jobs: 18%
  • Siding jobs: 13%

home improvement by the numbers

Home improvements are becoming the other side of the housing boom. The industry grew by nearly 3%, largely because so many people were (and still are) working from home. It’s also a result of a very hot and intense housing market, with home shortages that are predicted to last for years to come.

Instead of engaging with an extremely competitive real estate market and surging home prices, homeowners are turning to remodeling from the inside out. New exterior remodeling products can give you a brand new home at the same address. Best of all, these upgrades will increase your property value. 

If that’s not enough, Realtor reports that new windows and doors are two projects that bring the most joy to homeowners.
