Renovation House

IN THE NEW HOME BUILDING AND RENOVATION SECTOR, you’re not just building a home, you’re making dreams happen!

A home is the biggest investment most people will ever make. They dream about owning a home and work to get there. Whether building a brand new home or renovating an existing home, skilled trades are in the business of helping people realize their dreams.

Think about it: your skills can make a difference in people’s lives and in their enjoyment of their home.

There are two main types of employers in this sector:

  1. New home builders and renovation contractors hire tradespeople on staff, particularly carpenters, framers and site supervisors.
  2. Trade contractors – independent companies that specialize, for example, plumbing contractors or heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) contractors – range from small 2-3 person companies to larger ones with dozens of employees.

Trade contractors work on contracts for new home builders and renovators on specified projects, and they also offer services directly to the public. Many companies are owned and operated by tradespeople who started out with other firms and then set up their own business.
