HOUSTON, TEXAS (KIAH) – During the pandemic lockdown, 1 in 10 Americans tackled a home improvement project for the first time, and you may be surprised by how many regretted their decision.

A new study dives into the most popular project in each state, average financial investment, and biggest regrets.

The analysis by Bid-On-Equipment, using the Google AdWords platform, revealed that 89% of Americans have used their time during quarantine to spruce up their homes.

While some hired contractors (27%), 58% opted to do it themselves. But not everyone was happy with the results.

The study found 27% have quarantine DIY regrets, with 3 in 4 saying it took “too long” and more than half (57%) saying it “cost too much.”

The average cost of home-improvement projects during the pandemic was $3,797, with 30% of respondents saying their budgets ranged from $1,000 to $5,000, the study found.

About a third of respondents were disappointed with their results (32%), while 12% said their projects were too complicated and they should have hired a professional.
