Whole house remodels and additions are regaining market share, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). A recent remodelers survey, as part of National Home Remodeling Month in May, revealed the most common remodeling projects in 2016, compared to historical results of the survey.

“While bathroom and kitchen remodels remain the most common renovations, basements, whole house remodels and both large and small scale additions are returning to levels not seen since prior to the downturn,” says 2016 NAHB remodelers chair Tim Shigley. “Clients want to add more space, but remodeling a significant portion of the home is no easy feat.”

In the survey, remodelers reported that the following projects were more common than in 2013:

  • Whole house remodels increased by 10 percent;
  • Room additions increased by 12 percent;
  • Finished basements increased by 8 percent; and
  • Bathroom additions increased by 7 percent.

According to the survey, however, door and window replacements decreased to 36 percent from 45 percent in 2014.
