The latest monthly update from the Home Improvement Research Institute shows a planned home improvement project incidence of 50.4% among consumers in April. That's up 2.8% from the year-ago month and the second month in a row of year-over-year increases.

After a sharp drop in December, the first four months of planned project incidence have been mostly up, or very slightly down compared with last year, according to HIRI's Monthly Sentiment Tracking.
