Experts in the home improvement industry are predicting unprecedented demand for work in 2021 and beyond. The Covid pandemic had forced many people to spend more time in their homes and, in many cases, undertake new ways of home working. With all this time spent at home, homeowners have become all too aware of the jobs that need doing around the house. This had led to increased interest in a wide variety of home improvement projects.
