Flooring Contractors

Flooring Contractors

Overview

The 15,000 flooring contractors in the US install resilient floor tile, carpeting, linoleum, and hardwood flooring. Single-family homes and office buildings account for the majority of sales. Other sources of revenue include apartment buildings; health care and institutional buildings; retail establishments; and educational buildings.

Maintaining a Skilled Workforce

In some areas, contractors struggle with a shortage of skilled installers, and construction employment remains well below pre-recession levels.

Dependence on General Contractors

Flooring contractors often work with general contractors (GC), which act as a gateway to construction jobs, especially large projects.
