    Description

    The repair and remodeling of residential units in the existing housing stock is an important market for wood products. Included are many, and varied repair and remodeling activities and projects, some of which require substantial amounts of wood products, some of which do not. Currently, about 24 percent of all lumber, 23 percent of all structural panels, 15 percent of all nonstructural panels, and lesser amounts of engineered wood products consumed in the United States are used for residential repair and remodeling. This market has become much more important in recent years as the Nationas housing stock has grown larger, its average age has increased, and homeowner incomes have risen.
