Homeowners Are Investing Their Time in Home Renovations During COVID-19


To paraphrase the iconic Rolling Stones song, out-of-work individuals are finding that “Time is on My Side” when it comes to home projects. Lacking jobs to go to, homeowners are investing time and sweat equity into their abodes to pass their time productively. That bucket list of long-delayed home renovations is finally being addressed with relish as families seek home-based projects and avoid cabin fever.

Along with minor repairs such as silencing squeaky hinges and putting on the brakes to dripping faucets, many homeowners are tackling more ambitious projects that add to the home’s value and enhances the entire family’s enjoyment of their domestic space. In an effort to escape the home’s interior confines, many are initiating outdoor projects to beautify the home, add value, and increase usage of the backyard and its environs.
