Remodelers are problem solvers. Each new job seemingly requires some type of workaround or one-of-a-kind solution. That’s the nature of home improvement.

And that’s why the hundreds of products Qualified Remodeler publishes annually, in print and online, consistently generate very strong interest from its remodeler readers.

The Remodelers Choice 100 is a collection of products that generated the highest number of pageviews on over the past 12 months. They are presented in alphabetical order by the first letter of the manufacturer’s name.

What does this list of top-viewed products, the 2024 Remodelers Choice 100, indicate about the state of remodeling and the most popular types of jobs? We’ll let you be the judge.

A quick tally of product types, in which some products cross multiple categories, kitchen and bath products—faucets, fixtures, cabinets, toilets, tubs, tile and surfaces—come out on top with 29. This is followed by exterior products—windows, roofing, siding, gutters—with 18 on the list.

Third on the list is building products with 16. Rounding out the tally are nine tools, eight outdoor living, seven HVAC products, seven appliances, five coatings and sealants, and two lighting products.

If you do the math in your head and arrive at 101, congratulations. That’s because one product is counted twice. It is an exterior product as well as an outdoor living product.

A word about the methodology: the Qualified Remodeler web-development team drafted a list of the 250 most-viewed products from April 1, 2023, to March 31, 2024. Then the content team filtered the list to ensure that only products posted over that last 18 months were eligible. Also, adjustments were made in situations where a product might have appeared twice.
