As many in construction are experiencing, the skilled-labor shortage is a prominent trend. In the masonry industry, that means that there are more job openings than workers available. Though there have been some programs in place to help encourage young people to start working in fields such as masonry, experts estimate that this shortage will continue into 2019.
As natural disasters have damaged parts of the country, homeowners are looking for materials such as concrete that can withstand the weather. Additionally, in areas that have been hit by hurricanes, masonry contractors are needed to help rebuild.
Popular Masonry Tasks
Masonry tasks can vary by area and age of the home. Older homes often contact a masonry contractor to assist in waterproofing. Homeowners are also remodeling more often rather than moving, focusing on creating more accessible homes for themselves. This can result in more paths and pathways throughout the yard or ramps.
