Inflation, a housing recession, and persistent supply chain disruptions aren’t putting a damper on renovation projects across the U.S. In fact, A new Houzz survey found that among 4,000 homeowners polled in October, only 1% had canceled a home improvement project recently, while 37% said that they’ve finished a home renovation project in 2022, Realtor.com reports.

Window and skylight additions were the most popular improvement in recent remodeling projects, followed closely by new doors, paint, porches or balconies, and decks. Also, as homeowners renovate and upgrade their forever homes, many are installing new plumbing or electrical systems into old, outdated properties.
