We Have the History Channel to Thank For This Home Improvement Reunion

This is the closest we’ll get to a real-life Tool Time—and we’re so about it.

On Monday, Jan. 25, the History Channel dropped a teaser for its new competition series, Assembly Required. And if you were a Home Improvement fan, then this show is for you.

Assembly Required reunites Home Improvement co-stars Tim Allen and Richard Karn, who also serve as the show’s hosts and executive producers. The series, which will premiere Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 10 p.m., follows the hosts and a resident expert—DIY YouTube star April Wilkerson—as they challenge builders from across the country to “breathe new life into everyday household items in desperate need of fixing.”

The History Channel further detailed, “This new series will push each contestant to their limits while testing their ability and ingenuity to not only rebuild it but to build it better. In each episode, Allen

For eight seasons, between 1991 and 1999 on ABC, the classic sitcom Home Improvement brought the Taylor brood — an all-American family if ever there was one — into America’s living rooms. The series starred Tim Allen as Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, the star of show-within-a-show Tool Time, a (wait for it) home improvement series which he hosted with his deadpan sidekick Al Borland (Richard Karn), who often served as the straight man to Tim’s antics. Mostly, though, the real show focused on Tim’s home life with his loving wife Jill (Patricia Richardson) and their three sons, Brad (Zachery Ty Bryan), Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas), and Mark (Taran Noah Smith), who dealt with the bumps in life’s road with a little help from

Home Improvement Stock Volatility: What Does It Mean?

In the early days of COVID-19 lockdowns, many home improvement companies, from Pool Corporation (NASDAQ: POOL) to Home Depot (NYSE: HD), saw their stock climb. People were determined to make the most of the homes where they were confined, increasing their living space by making outdoor improvements. But the share prices for major outdoor living product companies, including Pool, Azek (NYSE: AZEK) and Trex (NYSE: TREX), have begun to fluctuate noticeably in recent months — no longer riding the steady “stay-home stock” tailwind they were in during the first six months of the pandemic.

What does this volatility indicate?

Conceivably, the jagged rises and drops in stock prices could correlate with ever-changing, unpredictable changes in COVID-19 community rules and future forecasts. If nothing is certain — including income, school schedules, or vaccine rollout — it’s hard to invest heavily in long-term improvement projects.

Forget Lowe’s, Home Depot Is a Better Home-Improvement Stock

The home-improvement industry has been surging as the coronavirus pandemic has forced so many people to spend more time at home. Not only are they noticing more projects that need to be done, but since the home now needs to be an office, a school, and an entertainment center, they need to upgrade or overhaul existing spaces. On top of all that, data shows that more families are deciding to move out of cities and into suburbs — which means out of apartments and into houses.

While the changes in consumer behavior during the pandemic were good for the home-improvement industry overall, some companies are better equipped to take advantage than others. Here is why Home Depot (NYSE:HD) is a better way to invest in this change than Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW)
