The Q1/2011 RRI (Residential Remodeling Index) of 80.2 shows a slight improvement over the 79.7 predicted in the October 2010 release. The forecast indicates a slow recovery, with a slight lift at the end of Q3/2011. RRI values indicate more or less remodeling activity relative to the baseline, which is set at 100 for 2007, the peak year for remodeling in the last decade. The RRI is published quarterly.
