In relative terms, renovation work is planned at around 14% of single-family detached homes and at almost 10% of homes in blocks of flats.
Almost three-quarters of homeowners who plan renovation work will pay for projects with savings, with one-quarter using savings from home savings banks.
One-fifth of homeowners planning renovation work will take out credit, and one in seven will get some form of state subsidy.
