Home remodeling is expected to pick up speed and remain elevated for the next 12 months, according to the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University’s Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity. As strong home sales, ramped up new construction, and home value appreciation continue, home remodeling will only grow at a faster pace, says the center. The annual remodeling expenditures to owner-occupied homes is expected to exceed $380 billion by the middle of next year.

The Remodeling Futures Program will continue to monitor input volatility.
