2012 Remodelers' Choice 100

The QR staff is often told that the products are a highly read and saved part of the magazine. We hear readers tear out the products pages and post them to bulletin boards or file them so the next time they need a drill-driver or a client asks for a tankless water heater, they can consider the products they saved.


Each year, we compile the 100 most inquired-about products from the past 12 months based on our Reader Service cards and unique URLs. Our 2011 Remodelers' Choice 100 featured many products with "green" characteristics. This year, green certainly was a consideration, as was standby power and universal design. This may be a testament to the wild weather events our nation has experienced and the Social Security Administration's recent statement that 10,000 people will be turning 65 every day for the next two decades.
