The Home Innovation Research Labs’s Annual Builder and Consumer Practices Reports provide market demand data for building product and material usage in the United States and Canada. For the past 15 years, the Annual Builder Practices Survey has been tracking building products and materials used in new home construction, documenting the rise and decline of various products’ and materials’ popularity. 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, such as appliances, countertops, roofing, siding, and many more. In these reports, detailed purchase volumes are provided by each of the 50 states. This sample report focuses on structured wiring.
