Outlook

Demand for this occupation is growing steadily as the construction industry rebounds from the recession. The demand is tied to new construction and remodeling work. Wood floors are becoming more popular in both new and older homes. In addition, consumers are choosing to restore damaged hardwood floors instead of replacing them. However, consumers can now purchase wood that is prefinished which may limit growth in this occupation.

This is a very small occupation with very few openings each year. Those who are trained in other floor laying and finishing methods will have the best chances for jobs.
