Go Build or Come Build!
Go Build or Come Build!
According to the Associated General Contractors of TN, finding qualified construction workers and trade specialists to support the construction industry in Tennessee continues to be a challenge. That is why English Home Improvements works diligently to not only retain the crews that we hire, but we also encourage our team members to recruit trades people who they know are trained and reliable. One of our crews has three generations of carpenters on it!
We are very excited about the “Go Build” program and other state education initiatives that are generating interest from young people and creating better pathways into the construction trades. Go Build has the tagline of “Engaging, informing, and inspiring the next generation of skilled workers in Tennessee – since 2016.” They also site that Qualified skilled tradesmen earn an average of $40,000 – and that number can grow past 6 figures in some fields. Because we are such a reliable contractor, we always have new projects starting. So, our crews stay busy and easily earn more than that average.
New Construction, Remodeling and Renovations are all booming in the middle TN area. In fact, Gary Ashton of RE/MAX Advantage says that according to CNN, over 30,000 people moved to Nashville in 2013. That equals 82 people per day every day! And the pace has not slowed, according to the Tennesssean , it was the same in 2017 -2018!
The influx has driven housing prices up too. Housing prices jumped 92 percent from the beginning of 2011 to the end of 2018, when they averaged $250,000, according to property-data firm Attom Data Solutions.
The busy pace is keeping contractors booked up. That makes it even more important to check a contractor out before signing a contract. It is an easy process.
