The headline “Renovation Boom” grabbed my attention and I read the article with interest. After several slow years in the remodeling industry, it appears homeowners are ready to update and renovate their homes. Remodeling businesses are busy and taking on more work everyday.  HGTV features hours and hours of home improvement, remodeling, and decorating ideas everyday. There is a reason for all of this programming – people are watching and wanting to improve their homes too!


The time is right for expansion in the area of home improvement, remodeling, and decorating. Homeowners are ready to make changes and want professional, qualified contractors to complete the work. If you are considering owning your own business, a franchise in the home improvement category will help you get started quickly, add brand recognition and support you in your endeavors.


Here is a list of franchise options in the home improvement category:

  1. Carpet, flooring, window coverings
  2. Decks – outdoor spaces
  3. Home Repair and remodeling
  4. Painting
  5. Siding and roofing
  6. Insulation
  7. Storage solutions
  8. Cabinet replacement
  9. Bathroom remodeling
  10. Electric, Plumbing, or HVAC


This is a great time to join the renovation boom and start a business in the home improvement industry. There are many advantages to owning this type of business.  One advantage is the low start up costs due to the possibility of being a home based business or located in a lower rent industrial space. Another benefit is the support from the franchisor – often providing a call in center to set up appointments and take care of marketing and other back office tasks.

The ideal owner for this type of franchise is a good people person with management experience. Franchisors are looking for owners to run the business – not swinging the hammer or installing equipment. Imagine the possibilities and call Select Franchise Consulting to discuss your options today.
