    Thank you for the interesting infographic! As a new home owner with a few projects on the roadmap, I’m curious to see if you’re able to provide a de-identified dataset (or something similar) to supplement. For instance, it would be very helpful to see the distribution of cost across the Highest/Lowest Potential prices or even narrow down the project cost via geographic region. Is anything like this availiable for your readers to do their own analysis? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    So, as I understand it, the prices for DIY project work and hired-out project work are averaged together? That’s pretty darn silly if it’s true. When I want to hire someone I want to know what it’s likely to cost to hire someone, and if I’m going to do it myself, I want to know what the materials and specialized tools will cost, not some professional’s labor price.

    Can you give me some idea how much it would cost to cover a single wide mobile home “Florida room” roof either with a rubber roof or some kind of vinyl? The room is approximately 10- x 16. The mobile is about 30 years old.

    I am a independent estimating consultant and have worked in the field since 1994.The problem I see with this graphic is it doesn’t identify the parameters of the project…number of units, labor costs, quality of installation or even the region. The Cost v Value report has been used for decades to determine all these factors. Perhaps modeling your graphic similar to the C v V report would be beneficial.
