Residential construction has experienced two years of unprecedented dynamics related to COVID-19. Whereas previous construction cycles have been driven largely by economic cycles and policies, (e.g., mortgage rates, lending policies, economic activity), the past two years were dramatically impacted by an exogenous force of nature. Overall, residential construction (new construction and repair and remodel (R&R)), dropped precipitously for one quarter in 2020 from the initial pandemic impact to full recovery by year end, followed by a surge in activity in 2021.
