Unprecedented change has characterized the market for home building products in the past several years. Companies who have managed to adapt and thrive have done so by keeping close watch on the market and industry during these tumultuous times. For the past 15 years, the Annual Builder Practices Survey has been tracking building products and materials usage for new home construction, documenting the rise and decline of various products’ and materials’ popularity. (We also track building product usage for home remodeling.) Our Annual Builder Practices Survey is the most comprehensive source for market demand data on building material purchases available.
Each year, Home Innovation Research Labs conducts a nationwide survey of home builders to document home sizes, designs, styles, and material selections. The findings are published in more than 40 Annual Builder Practices Reports on important product categories, like appliances, countertops, roofing, siding, and many more. In these reports, detailed purchase volumes are provided by each of the 50 states. Find out more about each of these reports by clicking on one of the building product categories below.
