Home Innovation Research Labs to Launch Builder Omnibus Survey in Early October

Building product manufacturers of all types need to stay on top of what their customers, builders, want and need out of home building products, materials, and technologies. But most don't have the time or budget to field a nationwide custom survey of home builders. Home Innovation Research Labs is launching its monthly Builder Omnibus Survey in early October to help manufacturers get the data they need in a fast, cost-effective way.

To gauge builder opinions of new building products or assess a product’s competitive advantage, manufacturers can sponsor one or more questions in the upcoming Builder Omnibus Survey, one of the many survey products available through Home Innovation Research Labs.

No matter what a manufacturer’s market intelligence objectives, Home Innovation Labs can include questions to meet those objectives, and the process is easy:

  • Sponsors supply Home Innovation Labs with their questions, or provide their research objectives and allow Home Innovation to draft the questions.
  • The web-based survey goes out to home builders across the country October 11th - at least 300 responses anticipated.
  • Responses remain confidential to sponsors, and tabulations are provided by October 25th.
  • The fee to participate is dependent upon the number and complexity of questions, but prices average about $750 per question.
