2022 STATE OF

RESIDENTIAL

CONSTRUCTION

INDUSTRY (SORCI)

REPORT REVEALS

SOLUTIONS FOR U.S.

RESIDENTIAL BUILDERS

DURING AN INFLATION

PERIOD

Report indicates key trends in US residential home building

marked by inflation, supply chain disruption and surge in

demand

HOUSTON, TEXAS— (March 28, 2022) The Association

of Professional Builders (APB), a leading business coaching

service for custom home builders, with members in the United

States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, today announced

the findings from its annual State of Residential Construction

Industry (SORCI) Report for 2022. The report, compiled

annually, surveys hundreds of residential home builders

operating in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New

Zealand. The sponsors for this report include Buildertrend,

CBUSA, Buildxact, Xact Accounting and Builda Price.

Key findings in the 2022 SORCI report for the United States

indicated:

• A sharp rise in the cost of materials, in particular, with

lumber prices increasing as much as 142 percent as a result

of increased demand and supply chain distributions.

• A surge in home building demand fueled by record low

interest rates and increased disposable income among

consumers who were unable to spend their money on

overseas vacations and entertainment.

• At the start of 2022, inflation had hit 7 percent in the

United States. This trend is likely to continue upwards until

interest rates are increased, at which point it is likely that

demand for new homes may start to drop.

Despite the supply chain disruptions, increased demand and

inflation, builders in the United States protected their margins

by using allowances for lumber from mid-2020 onwards. The

SORCI Report indicated that 49.1 percent of builders know

their fixed expenses per job, per day, an increase from 43.1

percent the year prior.

The SORCI 2022 report also revealed that the industry is

continuing to become more systemized and more professional

year over year. Professional builders continue to implement

new ideas and structures that enable them to become better

10 CONSTRUCTIONMONTHLY.COM

operators and deliver a better experience for their clients, with

37 percent of building companies investing more in training

during 2021 than what they invested in 2020.

Builders are looking ahead to 2022 with confidence with

almost half (46.8 percent) of all builders surveyed intending to

surpass $120,000 in annual salary. It’s important to note that

these figures all relate to owners’ drawings and do not include

any retained profits left in the company.

“While the residential home builders we talked to faced many

challenges this past year, their resilience is to be applauded,”

said Erik Cofield, U.S. Executive Business Coach, Association

of Professional Builders. “Residential Home Builders have been

willing to invest in their education to systemize their business

processes. This has enabled them to forecast jobs and schedule

revenue more accurately, which has resulted in increased profit

margins.”

More than 700 builders globally participated in the survey

to provide deeper insights into the residential construction


With professional builders running more concurrent projects

than ever before in 2021, the report also indicated that

builders were utilizing dedicated project management software

to manage the process efficiently. In 2021, 30.3 percent of

U.S.-based home builders used Buildertrend as a project

management software.

Other findings include:

• 74.6 percent of the U.S.-based home builders do not have

a business plan covering the next 3 years.

• 51.6 percent of builders in the United States delivered their

projects on time in 2021.

• 46.7 percent of the U.S.-based home builders recognize

generating quality leads as their biggest marketing

challenge.

• 40.2 percent of builders in the United States paid

themselves $60K - $120K in total drawings in 2021.

The comprehensive report also dives into trends in sales,

contracts, social media, marketing and advertising within the

industry. Data from the report also covered insights from

residential builders for lead generation, team building, project

management, planning, owner’s remuneration, financials and

self-development.

APB’S WORK IN THE INDUSTRY

APB has worked with thousands of builders, coaching

residential building companies to systemize their business,

including Rick Champlin of Simple Group based in Utah.

industry. Data from the report also revealed that 55.7 percent

of U.S.-based survey participants signed more contracts in

2021 than 2020. From all countries, 71 percent of builders

take on less than 13 projects a year. Additionally, 63.9 percent

of U.S. builders take on less than 13 projects and 36.1 percent

take on more than 13 projects per year, which is significantly

more than other countries. An important consideration

however, is that more builders in the United States tended

to focus on smaller projects with an average contract value

falling between $100,000 - $299,999 compared to Australian

builders.

“We always look forward to the opportunity to survey the

residential homebuilding community,” said Russ Stephens. “Our

annual SORCI report not only provides key data points that

help show us where the industry is headed, but also allow us

to adapt our offerings to the needs of the residential home

builders we have the opportunity to work with daily. We also

look forward to helping interested residential home builders

we haven’t yet worked with learn how to better systemize their

businesses, grow their margins, sales revenue and ultimately,

transform this industry.”

“One of the main reasons we joined APB was to improve our

margins, have accountability, and not reinvent the wheel,”

Champlin said. “One of the first things we did was look at our

accounting. We were able to figure out why our reports weren’t

accurate and then fix our accounting systems so that we could

quickly pull reports, which had been a big problem. We used

APB’s “Pricing For Profit’ model along with our KPI spreadsheet

to understand what our overhead numbers were and made

sure those got added to our pricing to help increase the net

profit on our jobs.”

GBHA BUILDING THE FUTURE OF THE RESIDENTIAL

HOMEBUILDING INDUSTRY

by Aimee Bertrand

The Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) welcomes

you to the Houston Build Expo! Our region has one of the

fastest growing housing markets in the country and the GHBA

is the largest home builders’ association in Texas.

Our more than 1,500 member companies not only consist of

residential home builders, but also residential land developers,

remodelers, engineers, subcontractors, and vendors, all

affiliated with the home building industry. Together, the GHBA

has the largest Remodelers Council and the largest Sales

& Marketing Council in the National Association of Home

Builders. Our new-in-2022 Professional Women in Building

building regulators and inspectors at the local level, and provide

insight and expertise on local development commissions

and taskforces. And at the state level, legislators propose

thousands of new bills every session, many that affect home

building, and we take an active role in advocating on behalf of

our industry.

The past 12 months have been opportunities for reengagement

and reinvigoration for our industry. As our members have dealt

with labor shortages, we have worked to build collaborations

with education, training and employer partners, to ensure that

we don’t lose students in homebuilding education programs

to other industries. GHBA has also created a free job board

for members to post their open positions at www.ghba.org/

careers-in-construction.

These groups meet regularly, hold educational luncheons,

provide material to GHBA members through online and inperson

learning, host networking events and dedicate time and

resources to GHBA charities, including Operation Finally Home

and HomeAid Houston.

The GHBA also participates in a very robust government affairs

advocacy program. Member builders work closely with local

officials during each code cycle review, meet regularly with

In partnership with our members, the GHBA continues its

mission to interact with government, the community, and the

general public to enhance the business climate for its members,

and to provide quality, attainable housing to the community it

serves.

Please visit www.ghba.org for more information on

opportunities for education and networking at the GHBA. We

look forward to building a GREATER Houston, with you.

IS YOUR FACILITY IN NEED OF LIGHTNING PROTECTION MAINTENANCE?

While most facilities have upkeep provisions or periodic maintenance programs for their building systems, a

lightning protection system check-up, can fall through the cracks. The vast majority of operations managers

and building owners aren’t familiar with industry requirements and recommendations designed to ensure

system safety and effectiveness.

MAINTENANCE

Maintenance and inspection is an

ongoing process and we can help!

DEFECTIVE PROTECTION

Hicks can determine if your current

protection is defective.

INSPECTION

Hicks is UL/LPI certified and can take care

of any repair or modifications needed.

RE-CERTIFICATION

Just because your system has been

inspected once, does not mean it meets

industry guidelines as time progresses.

Material And Pricing Clarity: 3 Steps Every Homebuilder And Remodeler

Owner Can Implement To Restore Business F.I.T.ness In A World Of Chaos

Wednesday, June 8 | 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

Windows that used to take 7 days in 2020 now take 7 months…maybe. Plywood that costs $11 now demands over $70!

Volatility is the new certainty, and contractors must create the discipline to develop a different level of fitness in their

business in order to navigate these new waters, with a more robust ship.

This life-changing and engaging 45 minute talk won’t waste your time in empty market predictions, but instead will provide you the tools to

build a better business that allows you to navigate a new business reality.

You will be equipped to beat chaos with predictability, and to build a business that weathers volatile changes, and makes time for what matters

most.

Recruiting And Hiring: The 4 Systems Every Homebuilder And Remodeler Owner Needs To

Build The Right People That Builds The Right Business

Thursday, June 9 | 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. | Keynote Area

People, people, people! How do we find the right people to hire? How do we find ANY people to hire?

The Boomers retired early, and the emerging generations are much more selective in the work they choose. How can you find the right people,

recruit them the right way, share the right vision, and then onboard them the right way that aligns with the right mission?

This life-changing and engaging 45 minute talk pulls from our work with hundreds of contractor owners that led to our proprietary and proven

roadmap.

This roadmap will equip you to beat chaos with predictability, and to build the team that will build the business to make time for what matters

most.

Selling Thru a Tough Economy

Wednesday, June 8 | 1:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

We’re seeing volatile pricing formats, supply chain interruption and rising interest rates. This usually ends in tough

economic conditions, resulting in construction industry challenges. Knowing the best way to stay ahead of these changes

and keep your business moving forward is difficult. We’ll look at the methods successful contractors use to weather

shifting economic conditions. We’ll cover:

Sponsored by 1. Increasing your portion of the market pie

2. Getting a competitive advantage

3. Managing customer expectations

4. Structuring your sales effort

5. How to balance sales and marketing efforts

You’ll come away from this session with a better understanding of what it will take to grow in both revenue and

profitability in these times. Sales is the most important aspect of your business. Everything else simply follows that lead.

Networking & Association Use

Thursday, June 9 | 1:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. | Keynote Area

Many contractors never join relevant associations that can produce revenue for them. Even worse they spend the dues money and don’t

maximize the effectiveness of the association. We will layout how to determine what associations to join, how to work them and get business

from your involvement. The single greatest way to find grouped customers and network contacts is right in your backyard association!

Work them to the fullest and you’ll never make a cold call again!

SPECIAL HOUSTON SHOW EDITION 2022 33


Texas is the only state to run an isolated electric grid, operated

by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). This system

allows it to skirt federal regulations, but also makes it more

difficult to import power from outside the system — and thus

more vulnerable to the type of catastrophic failures that occurred

in February. Lack of local weatherization regulation also left

refineries and natural gas plants unprepared for cold temperatures,

leading to disruptions along the energy supply chain.

Six Retail Energy Providers in the Upper Gulf Coast (Houston) area

are CenterPoint, 4Change Energy, Payless Power, Gexa Energy, Green

Mountain Energy, and Champion Energy. I advise that you check for

the providers in your area.

GROWTH ISSUES PUSH LEED

BUILDING, NEW GENERATORS &

SOLAR SYSTEMS

By John Whitcraft, PE, CLD, LEED AP BD+C,

President of Whitcraft Engineering Solutions, Inc.

Houston’s pivot to energy-efficient building has my attention.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a globally

recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership. One

Texas builder—Coventry Homes—clearly demonstrates green industry

leadership with its LEED certified homes in Austin, Dallas and Fort

Worth. They have instituted Environments for Living design in

Houston. This building business trend will become more prominent

as more people from environmentally-conscious California move to

Texas.

Statistics show that almost 700,000 Californians have relocated to

Texas since 2010. The top destination for all Californians moving to

Texas is Harris County. The Houston area was particularly popular

among Los Angeles movers, who accounted for almost 40% of the

Californians who moved to the city in 2019, joining nonnative Texans

from throughout the United States.

“In the past two years, installed solar capacity in Houston has more

than quadrupled, as new homeowners are going solar,” according to

Katie Watkins in a June 2021 blog on Houston Public Media.

Loss of Power Revealed Vulnerable Electric Power Grid

Extreme weather nearly devastated Houston—as well as much of the

entire Lone Star state—during the infamous ice storm of February

2021. American Oversight, a watchdog website, explains the dire

situation in its May 12, 2021 post:

The arctic blast hit Texas especially hard, triggering system-wide

failures across the state’s energy infrastructure that left roughly

4.4 million without power on the night of Feb. 15, with more

than 500,000 Texans still lacking power days later. More than

100 people died, and disruptions to water services continued for

days. Some of those spared power losses later found themselves

facing exorbitant energy bills.

34 CONSTRUCTIONMONTHLY.COM

To eliminate future power outage disasters, Houston Mayor Sylvester

Turner, a former state legislator, has spearheaded “Resilient Houston,”

a multi-billion-dollar initiative to fight the effects of natural disasters

and climate change. Mayor Turner said he is also collaborating on

projects to protect essential services such as the power grid and water

treatment facilities. In addition, he is considering construction of a

power microgrid to provide backup electricity in case of a major outage

in Houston. City officials are researching potential updates to building

codes to ensure greater protection for homes and apartments.

Citing an example of recent environmental sustainability, Mayor Turner

stated that renewable energy sources fully power all city facilities in

Houston. However, he acknowledged some resistance from Houston’s

fossil fuel corporations for a move to greener, cleaner energy sources.

In a March 11, 2021, interview with the Texas Tribune, Mayor Turner

responded:

There’s probably some nervousness on the part of companies,

but…moving forward with diversification of power sources and

energy transition is necessary for the wellbeing of all residents

and companies. You can’t talk about international, global trade

and business investments without also being able to say to people

around the country and around the globe that the city of Houston

is genuinely focused on taking the necessary steps to build

resilience and also to address climate change.

Generating Emergency Power with a Generator

Solar panels will not keep electricity working during a power outage.

For safety reasons, solar panels actually do not send electricity to

a house when the grid is shut down due to a storm or other power

outage. In a February 8, 2022, posting, Catherine Lane, blog writer for

Solar Reviews, explains:

Grid-tied solar panels send electricity to utility lines, and if they aren’t

shut off during a power outage, they would continue to send electricity,

posing a threat to utility workers fixing the lines. That means, in order

to prevent any harm, your solar panels go out when the grid does. Solar

panel inverters shut down during power outages, so homeowners need

a backup power [generator or battery system] if they want to run their

home without the utility.

Lane reported that gas generators are the most popular form of backup

power and can be installed at a home with solar panels as long as

the panels and generator are wired properly so that the two do not

interfere with one another. A solar installer or a certified electrician is

best equipped to create a back-up power system. Check with your city

and local requirements to identify if a permit is required.

Even with a stand-by generator, a house’s solar panels will stay off

during a power outage.

To keep the panels on requires installation of a solar inverter-


compatible battery. “You can install... a battery [inverter] with your

solar panels if you want to maximize the amount of backup power

available to you,” states Lane in her Solar Reviews post. The battery

system must have an electrical contactor, which is programmed to

disconnect from the grid while the battery charges from the solar

panels. The contactor is programmed to reconnect with the grid when

the battery is completely depleted late at night.

Choosing a home generator depends mainly on the size of one’s

dwelling and what is needed to be powered, according to Popular

Mechanics. The average house requires at least 5,000 to 7,500

watts to run only the most critical equipment, such as a refrigerator,

furnace, and hot-water heater. However, there are also systems that

are equipped to power an entire house. Full power requires at least a

20,000-watt generator.

Stand-by generators are permanently installed with a transfer switch.

Portable generators, sometimes called back-up generators, are used to

provide temporary power. “Portable is a relative term; some are more

portable than others,” explains Popular Mechanics. “While the smallest

models can be picked up and carried, most have wheels and a handle

to make transport easier.”

Some inexpensive generators in the chart below are recommended by

The Spruce in a February 2021 post titled, “The 7 Best Generators to

Have if There is An Outage.”

To ensure the safety of use and installation, here are the National Electric Codes adopted by Texas and which apply to the safety of solar

systems and generators:

• NEC Article 690 - Solar Electric Systems

• National Electrical Code Tips: Article 705, Interconnected Electric Power Production Sources

Solar Becomes More Popular

Wally Calaway, a retired scientist, selected solar to power his house. In

fact, he installed 25 solar panels on his roof. “I’m concerned about the

environment,” he told Houston Public Media reporter Katie Watkins. “I

can hardly force the Texas grid to go any faster than it’s going to solar,

renewable energy, but I can change my household.” Then, Calaway

admitted another motive — an economic one: “I haven’t paid a bill. I’ve

just been collecting a credit since they were turned on.”

Installed solar capacity in Houston increased from 9.5 megawatts at

the end of 2017 to 42.5 megawatts at the end of 2019 — enough to

power about 8,400 homes, according to Environment Texas, which has

been analyzing solar advancement in Texas cities for almost 10 years.

series of recommendations for Houston to become carbon neutral by

2050. The city aims to generate 5 million megawatt-hours from local

solar projects per year by 2050.

As Houston goes green, the city’s

businesses and residents will need

the services of a LEED-accredited,

and licensed professional electrical

engineer.

“For the first several years, growth of solar and Houston was pretty

slow, but in the last several years, it’s really skyrocketed,” said Luke

Metzger, Executive Director of Environment Texas. Even during 2020,

in the midst of the pandemic, Houston’s permitting office says it saw

the number of solar permits more than double compared to the year

before.

Increasing solar power from local rooftops and community projects

is one of the goals of the city’s Climate Action Plan, which outlines a

THE BENEFITS OF UTILIZING CGI ENVIRONMENTS FOR MARKETING IN

THE BUILDING INDUSTRY

Image Flexibility, Unlimited Possibility

Hiring a reputable CGI-rendering or animation studio can

help any marketing team both large and small achieve their

marketing goals in a much more cost-effective manner.

Computer-generated imagery services — whether still

renderings or animations — have staggering advantages over

traditional photography or videography for the construction

industry and the companies that support them. Finding a

suitable environment, tracking down the right furniture and

fixtures, staging the location, hiring an appropriate team,

and waiting for the optimal time of day or weather can be an

extremely frustrating and costly experience. Renderings not

only save money but provide an array of other benefits to the

end client as well. Everything in your chosen scenes can be

produced to your specifications. You select the lighting and

detail that fit your needs and goals. And, if you decide to make

a change, you won’t have to set up another costly photo shoot.

Images are consistent across a group and calibrated to your

vision, creating a turn-key process that provides your marketing

teams more time to devote to other projects and endeavors.

Complimentary Visual Interaction

A product represents a conscious selection of design elements. Form,

texture, and balance are carefully used, creating a beautiful end result

from many considerations and decisions. The same thoughtfulness

should extend to the 3D product environment. Digital Imaging

Group in Houston (https://www.dig-houston.com) takes this process

seriously, working with the utmost care to match the visual elements

of a 3D environment to the product it will ultimately showcase. Using

the unlimited possibility of CGI environments, the DIG team creates

spaces that vary: from the rough brick walls in an urban loft to the soft

pastel interior of a country home. Furniture, material, and the quality

of light all come together to create an ideal environment.

3D Environments and Focal Point, Details Matter

Companies like Hunter fans create products that take form just as

seriously as function. They deliver on both fronts to their customers.

Ceiling fans are environmental objects that consumers see every

day. They reflect the style and visual cues that each individual owner

wants in their home. For that reason, Hunter goes to great lengths

to create products that suit a wide range of aesthetic preferences.

In a multitude of shapes, colors, materials, and applications, Hunter

Fan Company is constantly providing new options and choices for its

consumers. When that much care and attention is put into a product,

the same level of thoughtful design and material choice must go into

the environment in which it is displayed. Digital Imaging Group is

proud to provide 3D-rendered environments for Hunter Fan Company

that match their exacting visual standards. The image to the left is

an example of how a 3D rendered environment and product can be

carefully composited with real-world photography. Every element of a

scene is created with the goal of ensuring visual harmony, unifying the

space with the product being displayed.

38 CONSTRUCTIONMONTHLY.COM


3D Environments Create Lush Outdoor Product

Settings

3D environments offer the gold standard for displaying product

imagery. These picture-perfect outdoor environments can be created

with exact lighting. The amount of control a client can exercise over

the environment is vastly greater — and less expensive — than that

available in a physical setting. DIG works closely with clients to create

an array of colors and compositions that enhance and display the

product in a stunning CGI image. You put all your resources, time, and

effort into creating the best possible product. Make sure your product

imagery matches the same high level of work, care, and attention to

detail.

CGI Environments from Wide Shots to Closeups

OZCO Building Products had a specific set of requirements for their

CGI product photography, and that meant wide beauty shots along

with up-close shots of specific hardware components. DIG worked

closely with the OZCO team to provide these shots and maintained

the consistent lighting and look that is critical across product imagery.

DIG’s CGI staff leverages years of experience in 3D product rendering

to deliver the results clients need and expect, creating CGI product

images with real visual impact. With stunning 3D environments

showcasing your products, they are sure to get noticed.

The Sky is The Limit

This is just a very small sampling of the benefits and uses in which

CGI can benefit any marketing or product development team. Many

companies are employing CGI to create dynamic product animations,

technical animations, and also installation animations to aid in the

training of staff to reduce product installation errors which ultimately

increase end-client customer satisfaction and save the company both

time and money. You are only limited to your imagination when it

comes to using CGI on your next marketing project.
