Handyman Connection Reports Most-Requested Home Improvement Projects of the Year; Predicts Big Trend for 2022

Lighting improvements topped the list of most popular home projects in 2021, according to Handyman Connection data. A 36% increase in website searches for "Aging in Place" points to a likely trend for next year.

BLUE ASH, OHIO (PRWEB) December 07, 2021 - Homeowners continued to focus on home improvement projects around the house in 2021, with the most popular jobs related to lighting and electrical upgrades. That’s what Handyman Connection, a home repair company in operation for 30 years, found when it reviewed this year’s sales data from its locations throughout the United States and Canada.

Many people are looking for assistance with general handyman tasks around the home, which is one of the most frequent reasons they call in a professional. Beyond that, the most-requested projects in 2021 were electrical, with homeowners looking for help with everything from repairing outlets and switches to installing light fixtures and fans. Recessed lighting and under-cabinet lighting fit into this category as well – popular upgrades for kitchens and bathrooms. Plumbing and carpentry rounded out the top most-requested categories of repair/renovation projects.

“While DIY projects have an important place in many households, there are certain home improvements that need the expert skill of trained craftsmen,” said Jeff Wall, President of Handyman Connection. “Electrical, plumbing and carpentry projects are often best left to the professionals, so we weren’t too surprised to see those categories top our list this year.”

Regional preferences were also found in the data. In the Northeast, carpentry was the most-requested service. That often includes installing or replacing doors and windows, which is a popular project in the winter month as homeowners look to stop drafts and leaks around these openings.

In the South, drywall repairs topped the list, with deck, porch and patio projects close behind. That’s not a surprise for markets like Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, where increased moisture can create leaks and water damage, and outdoor living spaces are used year-round.

Looking ahead to 2022, the experts at Handyman Connection predict that adapting homes for aging in place will continue to be a top priority. In fact, the number of people who searched “aging in place” on the company’s website increased 36% from last year. Those services include everything from installing grab bars and shower seats to remodeling countertop heights and creating pocket doors.
