Consumer Reports Poll Results: DIY Home Remodeling on the Rise

A recent poll taken by Consumer Reports shows that DIY home remodeling is on the rise. In this recent Consumer Reports survey, it is estimated that in the next 12 months, 54% of homeowners have plans to take on a home remodeling project. Of these homeowners, 65% have intentions to make at least a portion of their remodeling job a do–it–yourself (DIY) project. The poll also tallied what type of remodeling project homeowners plan to take on. The results show that 34% of homeowners are planning a flooring remodel (installing new hardwood, carpet, laminate, tile, etc.), while 56% plan to paint, and 39% plan some level of redesigning.

The Consumer Reports survey also tallied the percentage of homeowners that have had to reevaluate their remodeling project due to recent economic challenges. The results are a heavy 67%. Nearly half of these consumers that have reevaluated have decided to choose DIY projects over using professionals for their remodeling job, to save money. Of the homeowners surveyed by Consumer Reports, 91% have taken on DIY projects in the past, however, approximately one third of these consumers have had some sort of regret stemming from the results of their project.

When it comes to major remodeling projects such as DIY flooring installations, be sure you know what you are doing. Check out FindAnyFloor's flooring installation guides for help planning and executing your DIY installation. If you decide that a professional installation is the best choice for your remodel, try searching our "Find it Locally" tool to find flooring installers in your area.

I believe your numbers are absoutly correct. Many of these type of DIYers are our clients in New Jersey. With a little profesional guidance to avoid the pitfalls a DIYer can add more value to their home then they spend instead of less as industry studies such as Cost vs. Value have proven. A content only site, The DIY Coach USA, has many articles on its attached Blog and links to industry studies that confirm your story. Good Job of encouraging homeowners to tackel projects
