The U.S. home remodeling industry is poised for growth in 2011, with NAHB predicting as much as a 20 percent increase in spending for home improvement projects. Studies show that in the next five years, the focus of remodeling spending will shift from upper-end discretionary projects to replacements and systems upgrades. With energy costs on the rise and consumers becoming increasingly aware of the need to conserve resources, green remodeling is providing remodeling business opportunities ranging from insulation upgrades to whole-house renovation projects.
Most of the nation’s 125 million homes were built before today’s high efficiency materials, appliances and construction techniques were incorporated into new homes. As homeowners look toward remodeling, they are considering and asking for products such as low-e windows, Energy Star® rated appliances, upgraded insulation and other green products.
