Projects Homeowners Are Eyeing for DIY Renovations

Find out what kinds of home improvement endeavors consumers are researching online.

The majority of Americans say they’ve taken on DIY home improvement projects mostly as a way to save money, according to a survey from Angi, a home improvement resource. But homeowners admit they’ve taken on more than they should, often resulting in costly errors or delays that could hurt their home’s value.

Eighty percent of survey respondents admit they’ve made mistakes during their DIY project; 45% say they’ve “completely butchered” their project.

For better or worse, 43% of DIYers say they turn to YouTube as a top source of information for their projects. But what are they searching for the most?

Frontdoor, a home services plan firm, culled the data to identify what projects consumers most often research online. (Use the topics as inspiration for future blogs, social media posts or as resources to share in your client outreach.)
