Delta was the faucet brand installed most often by builders in 2001 according to a survey that drew responses from more than 2,300 builders whose firms built residential units last year. Readex, an independent research firm, conducted the survey in the last quarter of 2001, commissioned by Builder Magazine.

The most familiar faucet company to the trade was also Delta, according to the survey. The manufacturer has recently changed its logo and streamlined its product development process to emphasize styling, design and engineering quality.
