Chinese tariffs about to make your home renovation more expensive

By Diana Olick | CNBC

Home renovation demand is soaring, and so are the costs to do it, thanks to a new round of tariffs on goods imported from China.

The latest round hits about $10 billion worth of Chinese products exclusive to homebuilding and remodeling, according to the National Association of Home Builders.

To start, it is a 10 percent tariff, but then could rise to 25 percent by the end of the year. That would be equivalent to a $2.5 billion tax increase on the industry.
