The pandemic has caused a surge of home improvement projects. Many businesses here in the Capital Region are experiencing it.

Over at Curtis Lumber, they say since less people are going on vacation. They want to turn their home into an oasis.


They're using the money they would spend on trip or their stimulus checks on improvements.

They said many are focusing on outdoor living spaces, putting in decks or expanding their yard space.

They said people are shifting to kitchen improvements as we move into fall.

Curtis Lumber wants customers to know they have safety protocols in place when doing these projects.

The business says they're seeing a mix of contractors coming in for projects as well as homeowners who can't wait for contractors’ busy schedules to free up.

Learn more about some of those procedures by watching the video.
