As it turns out, home-services / remodeling companies like The Glass Guru are primed to take advantage of a new focus on smaller, purpose-driven remodeling projects being completed by homeowners. According to the article: “Small-scale renovations are slowly becoming just as popular as large-scale projects, as seen with bathroom remodeling becoming more common than kitchens,” said 2018 NAHB Remodelers Chair Joanne Theunissen, CPG, CGR, a remodeler from Mt. Pleasant, MI. “Home owners are finding cost-effective and shorter-timeframe upgrades can also add comfort and value to their homes.” In the survey, remodelers reported that of the most common projects in 2017:

  • 81% did bathroom remodeling
  • 78% did kitchen remodeling
  • 49% did whole house remodeling
  • 37% did room additions
