report has been added to's

Renovation and maintenance measures account for more than 50% of
investments in residential building. Accordingly, these measures are the
most important market for many products and materials. When it comes to
renovation and maintenance in residential building, the private
renovators are an important target group for the placement of products
and services.

In order to provide relevant information for addressing this target
group, the study analyses the following questions among others:

  • Who are the private renovators?
  • What are the motivations behind the decisions to renovate?
  • What measures are conducted most often?

To answers these questions, the study analyses a broad range of 18
renovation measures from the building shell to interior works. Spent
budgets, information sources and advisors, relevant product features,
and the realisation of the measures have been surveyed for every measure.

Thereby, the study generates far-reaching insights on the renovation
market in general and on the target group specifically, in order to
support the placement of products and services. Data collection is based
on an online survey of private renovators and additional interviews with
craftsmen and architects.
