As a restoration expert, your clients reach out to you on some of the worst days of their life. And because you’ve built a business with well trained technicians, quality commercial equipment and good business practices, your reputation has grown. Clients trust you to repair and restore their homes, businesses, and lives.
And the future looks promising for disaster services. In the last couple of years, several factors have spurred the demand for industry services: climate change, more people working from home, an aging inventory of homes. Post Katrina, the restoration industry became more professional, organized and ready to respond to increasing frequency and intensity of natural disasters.
Currently, the restoration industry is worth about $210 billion and it looks to grow even more in the years ahead. Three out of five contractors predict a 27% increase in restoration and remediation work this year. But you must have a solid plan moving forward to be profitable and successful.
Create An Effective CRM System For Your Restoration Company
Current Industry Challenges
Current surveys of managers in the trades reveal top concerns: skilled labor shortages, increased supply costs, managing COVID, fear of inflation’s effect on capital acquisition. Good decisions you make now will help you grow and maintain your edge. In the years to come many predict the increased use of AI (artificial intelligence) in estimating, continued consolidation, and challenges in finding (and training) skilled workers.
