2005 Consumer Practices Report - Interior Finishes

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. Market demand data on repair and remodeling expenditures obtained through the annual Consumer Practices Survey (CPS), an annual online survey of U.S. and Canadian households, results in tabulations that represent the demand for building products and materials purchased by consumers for home improvements, repairs, and remodeling. These reports also provide key information on purchasing and installation practices, as well as demographic information about the respondents.

Prior to 2003, the CPS was fielded as a paper survey, which generally garnered about 8,000 usable responses. Since then, Home Innovation Labs expanded the CPS to capture data on remodeling projects in renter-occupied houses and implemented an online survey to capture data for repair and remodeling expenditures. The online survey consistently provides over 46,000 usable responses.
