NAHB survey: Kitchens and bathrooms remain top remodeling jobs

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Both kitchen and bathroom renovations have increased 17% from two years ago, according to a survey conducted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), with bathroom remodels cited as a common job by 78% of remodelers and kitchen remodels at 69%. Since 2009, bathrooms and kitchens have switched places in popularity, with bathroom remodels moving into the top spot as the most common type of remodeling project. 

Remodelers reported that homeowners were frequently upgrading both kitchens and baths, cited their desire to stay in their homes longer.  Nearly 50% of remodelers reported seeing an increase in the number of home owners who undertake remodels to avoid moving compared to the 2010 findings. 

In addition to kitchens and baths, other popular remodeling categories included window/door replacements (44%), whole house remodels (35%), room additions (33%) and handyman services (31%).

Grime Boss pushes petal to the metal

BY Ken Clark

Already an active sponsor in NASCAR racing, Grime Boss heavy-duty hand cleaning wipes are now on board with NHRA drag racing, specifically with Jim Dunn Racing’s Funny Car team. 

“Our sport is a perfect fit for Grime Boss hand wipes,” said Jon Dunn, business manager for Jim Dunn Racing of the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). “In the NHRA, like many other motorsports, our mechanics are constantly getting their hands dirty working on the engine, clutch and other components from the time the race car is rolled out of the trailer through the end of each race day.” 

In the NASCAR circuit, Grime Boss teamed with Joe Gibbs Racing and driver Ryan Truex.

Schlage launches 40-city promotion

BY Brae Canlen

Schlage, a brand of Ingersoll Rand that produces security products, is spearheading a national neighborhood safety initiative in conjunction with National Neighborhood Watch-USA to commemorate the crime-prevention organization’s 40th anniversary.

Schlage will meet with Neighborhood Watch Captions in 40 cities across the United States and donate hundreds of its new alarmed locks, a residential door lock with an audible built-in alarm sensor that alerts residents the moment there is activity at the door.

Specifically engineered to detect vibration and motion at first contact with a door or handle, the Schlage alarmed lock, which is sold at retail and online as the "Keyed Entry with Built-In Alarm," can be adjusted to a choice of settings, all of which have the approximate loudness of a standard smoke alarm.

The device also has a “forced entry alert” setting that sounds a shrill, steady siren for three minutes when a significant force occurs, such as when someone tries to kick in the door.
