Tradesman And Builders Job Trends March 2017

March is always a busy month for home improvements and domestic construction jobs. It signals the end of the long winter hibernation and delivers an upsurge of home owners looking to spend on larger home improvement jobs.

So what areas will be busiest for your trade this March?

We've analysed data from over 30,000 home improvement jobs in the month of March over the past 10 years to deliver you with an overview of the trends and help you focus your efforts. For paid members of OnlineTradesmen.ie we can provide a tailored report including pricing trends for your location and trade. Sign up here for access.

House Extension Jobs

House Extension Jobs

March brings an increase in home extension projects across the board. With the largest increase coming in the greater Dublin area (Dublin, Wicklow, Meath, Kildare) over the last 3 years, we expect this to continue in March 2017. This will deliver more work for building contractors, Architects, Surveyors and Building engineers over and above previous years. Members can access and tender for home extension projects as part of our subscription service.

House Refurbishment Jobs

house refurbishment jobs

Refurbishment activity will increase by as much as 30% in March from February levels. Leading the way are kitchen refurbishments, followed by Bathrooms and minor inner works.  This will place demand on kitchen fitters, carpenters and tilers. Take advantage. 

Storm Damage - Jobs for Roofers and More.

Roofing Jobs

Storm season will bring a surge in demand for roofers, glaziers, Electrical repairs and external carpentry jobs to supplement normal job volumes on our service for these job types. The threat of freezing conditions in previous years has kept demand for plumbers up across the board. Get in touch to see if we can help your business.

Electrician Jobs 

Electrical re-wires and plumbing installation works remain steady with latent demand being fulfilled in the coming month’s dues to the increase in building works.

Jobs for Painters and Flooring

Painting Jobs

March will see a further increase in painting and flooring jobs on the service.  These job categories have been particularly busy with no let up after the Christmas period. Talk to us to see if you business can benefit.  

Boiler Service Jobs

Boiler Service Jobs

Boiler service and repair jobs will continue to be in demand but the volume will depend on prevailing weather conditions. If there is a cold snap, expect demand to soar as per previous years.

Landscaper Jobs

Finally March sees renewed demand for external landscaping / hardscaping jobs as home owners start considering the Irish summer (earlier and shorter each year). It’s a good time to start building a sales pipeline in these areas.
