Despite the COVID-19 pandemic putting millions of Americans out of work, the construction industry is still struggling to find workers, with hundreds of thousands of job postings remaining unfilled.
After a turbulent 16 months, it seems the lumber bubble has finally burst, with the market price for one thousand feet coming down for the ninth consecutive week. As the price falls to around the $700 mark, the construction industry and legion of home do-it-yourselfers are poised to begin new projects as the cost of building suddenly becomes a lot more viable.
Whether you’re planning a kitchen remodel, bathroom makeover, or a complete renovation project, it’s essential to surround yourself with experts. While calling in different contractors for different jobs may seem the right thing to do, having multiple teams coming and going can get frustrating and prove taxing on your budget. By using a single multi-licensed contractor, you not only take a lot of the hassle out of your building project, but you can also save a lot of money.
When choosing a contractor to head up your remodel, these simple steps can mean the difference between complete confidence and sleepless nights.
