|Every year, for its Guide to Building Products special issue, Builder magazine commissions an in-depth study surveying what brands builders recognize most, use most, how they rate the products' quality, and which companies are best at communicating with builders. The study is conducted by Readex, an independent research company.|
The complete results of the Brand Use Studies from 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010 are available in PDF format. To download the study sections, just click on the link.
Two items to note:
- These PDF files are fairly large, and will take time to download on anything less than a high-speed Internet connection. They're worth the wait, however, if you want detailed information on the brands builders know, trust, and use.
- You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader, a free browser plug-in to view the downloaded files. Acrobat Reader is usually included with Internet browser packages such as those provided by Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator. If you need the Acrobat Reader plug-in, click here and follow the download and installation instructions.
