Challenge of Home Maintenance during Building Boom

Not sure if you’ve noticed but the greater Boston area is going through one of the biggest building booms in local history. Estates and dream homes face significant wait periods for putting foundations in, and tear-downs are as common as hedgerows in MetroWest.

The unprecedented local growth has stressed the ability of contractors to keep up with opportunities and shed light on the obvious; tradesmen are not a renewable resource. The demand for skilled workers far exceeds supply, and the shortage is further exacerbated by a shrinking­ labor pool as fewer and fewer young Americans enter the sector.

It is harder than ever to get qualified companies to take smaller jobs or maintenance projects, as their personnel resources are committed elsewhere. Unaccountability, scheduling nightmares, and sub-standard teams are pervasive in this underserved market where all too often the best, qualified resources are not available.

Homeowner frustration and the dearth of professional service providers focused on home maintenance and repair, has born a new breed of managed service company committed to filling the void with a level of professionalism and accountability uncommon in today’s marketplace.
