Older Homeowners Invest a Lot in Remodeling

Studies have shown that older homeowners invest a lot in home improvement. In the future, aging-in-place upgrades will become more popular as homeowners elect to stay in their current homes. Fortunately, Handyman Connection® of West Omaha offers a variety of installation and remodeling services that can help homeowners remain in their own homes as they grow older. In today’s post, we will discuss some trends that show that older homeowners will be the ones who drive the home improvement market.

Older Homeowners Invest In Remodeling

A study by Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies shows that home improvement spending continues to trend upward. The aggregate total is 424 billion dollars which is a 50% increase over the low back in 2010. This report also found that older homeowners are spending a lot on home improvement projects. If this continues then these older homeowners will invest in accessibility improvements for their homes.

This is because most US homes are not currently equipped to accommodate individuals with vision issues or special mobility needs. If a homeowner expects to stay in their current home, then they will need to work with a professional remodeling company to implement aging-in-place upgrades.

Aging-In-Place

Aging-in-place upgrades are designed to make a home safer, easier and more comfortable to use for the older members of the family. For instance, a bathtub might be converted into a walk-in tub or walk-in shower. No-slip flooring might be installed in the bathroom to prevent any accidents. Counter heights might be adjusted in the kitchen to make it easier to use. Aging-in-place upgrades make it possible for individuals of all ages to live comfortably.

We can install aging-in-place upgrades that will make your home easier and safer to use for the older members of your family.
