7 Home Improvements That Cost a Lot More in 2021

These projects will take a bigger bite out of your budget than in the recent past. Many of us have been spending a lot more time at home during the coronavirus pandemic, and that puts a magnifying glass on things we want to upgrade both inside and outside the house. For a variety of reasons — scarcity of materials, tariffs, rising wages, demand for sustainable products — many remodeling projects are costing significantly more now, according to HomeAdvisor, an online marketplace that connects homeowners with prescreened home service professionals. For its 2021 True Cost Report, HomeAdvisor took a look at home improvement projects that were popular in 2020 and how much more expensive they became in 2020 compared with 2019.
