The rate of employment growth for the carpet installation industry is projected to be the same as the anticipated growth rate for the construction industry in coming years. Most of this growth is a direct result of the increasing number of existing buildings that will need to be renovated, rather than the building of new structures. Carpet will continue to be a popular floor covering, and carpet installers will have good job opportunities.
“In the coming years there will be plenty of opportunity. Jobs will only continue to increase! We do not have a problem finding the work.” ~ Todd Jones, CFI Vice President
