Home Repair, Reconstruction, and Improvements
The Home improvements infographic below is helpful for homeowners trying to calculate the cost of general repairs, reconstruction after a disaster, or home improvements. It is important to keep in mind that the statistics for this infographic were collected by the United States Census Bureau in 2011 and some repair costs have risen in the last three years.
The statistics in this infographic show that the majority of home owners will need to make home improvements or repairs, be it from disaster or to improve the comfort and value of their home.
While plenty of homeowners took on DIY projects in 2011, a full 63% hired professionals for their home repair and improvements. This percentage is actually a good reflection of the percentage of projects that are unsafe or overly difficult without professional equipment and training. When in doubt it is best to contact a professional contractor like Construction 911.
Notice that roofing reconstruction was the most costly of all improvements made in 2011. Roofing materials are expensive, but that is not the whole cost. Due to the high risk of injury associated with roof repairs and the knowledge required to repair or prevent roof leaks it is necessary to hire a professional.
