HIRI Is Here for You

Independent, membership-based and not-for-profit, HIRI acts solely on behalf of our members. Whether you provide a product or service, your success is our only concern. With this focus, it’s our mission to be recognized as the primary authority for effective, useful information about home improvement products and services in North America. And more than providing information, we offer an impressive array of benefits. 

Benefits of membership

Exclusive research
Our proprietary home improvement research encompasses baseline and tracking studies that profile the characteristics, attitudes and buying behaviors of consumers and professional remodeler customers. While our studies are geared to meet the individual needs of HIRI members, they also gauge trends in the market relevant to our members as a whole. Our findings help those at all levels of an organization.

  • Insights teams can dig deep into raw data for analysis, tabulations, banner reports, tables, etc.
  • Sales, marketing and brand teams can see trends and forecasts at a glance.  
  • Product, channel and other managers can utilize data through organized visual reports and summaries.
  • Executive teams can readily access information through executive summaries and infographics that provide key takeaways in a quick, digestible format.

HIRI collaborates with leading organizations in the home improvement industry including Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing, NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry), NRHA (National Retail Hardware Association) and The Farnsworth Group, among others.
