Houzz Stat: Stable demand for design-build firms

The Houzz Renovation Barometer survey was fielded Sept. 28 to Oct. 12, and responses were received from 2,241 professionals.

General contractors and remodelers posted high scores. General contractors and remodelers posted a reading of 71, and design-build firms 67, in the third quarter of this year. Both scores dipped a bit from the second quarter, but again, that is to be expected with the shift in seasons.

The scores for general contractors and remodelers and design-build firms are pretty close to those of a year ago, indicating fairly stable demand on a year-over-year basis.

On a year-over-year basis, the score for the number of design-build firms’ new projects or orders dropped by three points. Despite that dip, scores for both design-build firms and general contractors and remodelers remain strong, in the mid- to high 60s and low 70s for both groups across all three components of the barometer.
