As the length of time Americans have been confined to their homes has grown during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the appetite for home improvements has increased. The pandemic has shifted the way a home functions and has provided homeowners ample time to perform improvement tasks that may otherwise have been put off. According to survey data from Porch, three-quarters of U.S. homeowners carried out at least one home improvement project since the start of the pandemic and around 80% plan to complete at least one project in the next 12 months.
