Top 10 Renovations in Canada

Bathroom renovations were the No. 1 home fix in 2014, topping the list in five provinces, according to a survey by a national contractor referral website.

The top 10, as listed by TrustedPros, were

  1. Bathrooms
  2. Basements
  3. Decks
  4. Roofs
  5. Kitchens
  6. Painting
  7. Floors
  8. Landscaping
  9. Windows
  10. Home additions

 

Bathrooms topped the renovation desires of people in Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, and British Columbia.

In the other provinces, the top reno projects are:

  • Newfoundland and Labrador: Basements.
  • Prince Edward Island: Decks.
  • New Brunswick: Roofs.
  • Saskatchewan: Basements.
  • Alberta: Basements.

 

TrustedPros said the popularity of bathroom renovations could be partly because homeowners can get good return on the cost when they sell their homes.
