"When it comes to investing in our homes and properties, there seems to be no shortage of projects to complete," said Anne Reagan, Editor-In-Chief of Porch. "Where we spend our money, and who we hire to complete projects, may be due to the nature our home or property, regional differences, seasonal influences, or financial incentives. Understanding which projects are performed in each state may help you understand your own to-do list better as well as the general housing market."

Residential construction was the largest percentage, with 29% of states having that as their number one project. Residential construction indicates new home construction, additions and renovation projects, where a multitude of permits are filed.

Roofs and roofing projects (such as roof replacement and servicing) occupied 12% of the states while mechanical and ventilation projects, like heating, cooling and air conditioning (HVAC) and furnace installation showed up for 10% of the states.
