Humans are curious by nature. It’s why the Guinness Book of World Records is so popular. What else but curiosity would lead us to wonder who holds the record for being the most tattooed person in the world?

Here at Builder, there are some other things that pique our curiosity. For example, staffers are always checking the lists of the top 10 markets for home building, builders’ favorite house plans, and the numbers of sales, starts, and permits. We’re also curious about which products, out of the hundreds we write about, catch our readers’ interest.

This top 50 product list—based on reader service requests—is only a snapshot, but the results are fairly intriguing. For instance, green products did not rank as high this year as they have in the past. Perhaps there’s a backlash against green-washing or maybe more builders are on the hunt for value-oriented offerings that keep their costs down.

This year’s list shows that readers are indeed interested in technology (such as induction), but they are also looking at stylish new offerings such as Sub-Zero’s new refrigerator columns.

Curious? See for yourself as Builder reveals the 50 most popular products (plus ties) for 2010 based on readers’ requests.
