Through our process of matching homeowners with quality contractors across the country, we survey thousands of homeowners each quarter. In the second quarter of 2019, we learned a lot about how homeowners research their projects, how they budget and pay for them, and how they choose a contractor to complete them.

A few key findings include:

  • What resources homeowners use to conduct project research
  • How many homeowners have created a budget for their project— and how cost impacts completion
  • How to impress a homeowner, after price.

This new study is part of an ongoing research project. Modernize is dedicated to educating home improvement contractors so they can better understand customers’ needs and preferences in order to make sound business decisions. Each quarter, Modernize surveys thousands of American homeowners interested in solar, roofing, windows and HVAC projects.
