These are the hot topics in the industry ahead of the coming year.

An increase in the scope of work and requirements for renovations in preparation for the new year

It has been a very successful year in the renovation industry, with a rapid recovery from the corona, keeping the industry during the corona time as an essential industry and strengthening the status of the industry in the eyes of the public.

In addition, significant sections of the public began to work in a hybrid-work model, which gave them a significant number of hours in their home and consequently the desire to change, improve, renovate and improve their property and home work environment.

Towards the last quarter of 2021, we are aware of the growing demand following the "aging" of many buildings and their collapse, with the bulk of the demand being for renovations along the seafront, where private buildings and houses require more maintenance due to weather and salinity.

The regulation of the industry leads to the demand for professional hands

Progress and innovation affect almost all industries in the economy, but in one industry it is almost impossible to replace the person with a machine - the renovation industry, from plasterer to plumber.

Accordingly, the renovation industry has become one of the most powerful levers of the Israeli economy and the Israeli economy.

We are witnessing a massive demand of professional workers, in accordance also with the strengthening of the industry both from a regulatory point of view, tests and regulation of the industry.

Due to the demand for professional workers in the industry, the cost of professional workers has risen by more than 10 percent in 2021 and the expectation for 2022 is an increase in the demand for professional workers.

Their price may rise again by a few percent.

Renovations of building facades in, Tama 38/1 out

One of the industries that has almost disappeared in recent years is the exterior renovation industry of buildings.

TMA 38 forfeited all the cards, and all the buildings that wanted to renovate the front of their house waited for the bureaucracy to get permits or a majority for TMA 38/1, thus actually saving the cost of the renovation that might fall on the tenants.

Therefore, building renovations (an industry that has almost disappeared from the Israeli landscape in recent years, because in the NAP there is no cost to tenants and in renovating facades there is a high cost for the building's occupants.) The steam and may take its place again in the renovation industry.

This is also a problem.

Climate crisis?

Exterior renovations will also become more expensive

Another forecast is a rise in prices, especially in foreign jobs.

Global warming, extreme weather changes, prolonged work due to weather changes and broken seasons will make it difficult for professionals to use more expensive materials, work longer hours and even depend on certain areas for the grace of the weather.

Therefore, in 2022 we will see the beginning of a rise in prices compared to interior renovation works.

Renovations in Tel Aviv: it is difficult to find contractors and the price is more expensive

As early as 2021, the Association of Renovation Contractors began to see a rise in prices in the demand areas in the center of the country, following parking problems, light rail works, reports and also increased penalties by the municipality.

Renovations in Tel Aviv have become almost impossible, and this is even before the congestion levy preparing to enter in 2025. All of these continue a trend in the industry that began in recent years and intensified this year - many renovation contractors are simply unwilling to take jobs in Greater Tel Aviv. .

The hot trends for the civil year - hidden doors and showers

Already towards the third quarter, they began to see a trend in the renovation industry regarding specific renovations.

The first of these is the trend of hidden doors in a zero line with the wall and jamb.

To hide the door, the wall will be in one line and on the same plane with the door and then cover the jamb and the door with a suitable cladding and thus in effect, hide the door.

In the second half of 2021, the association saw an increase in demand, and the forecast for next year is that they will increase.

The second trend is replacing old bathtubs with showers.

This is evident not only in the country but also overseas, spacious showers with a large and beautiful shower head instead of the bathroom space that has not been utilized due to times, children who have grown up and also for reasons of comfort.

Also, the designs of the showers have improved and more will develop in the coming years and here too, the phenomenon will grow in the coming year and in the coming years.
