Wisconsin

Wisconsin Construction and Home Improvement AssociationsWhile the construction and home improvement industries throughout Wisconsin are not seeing the largest economic gains, they are definitely holding steady and strong. Most of the construction taking place in the state is due to the building of roads and bridges. However, these industries have noticed a lack of qualified contractors to fill vacant job positions in specialty service positions including welders, pipefitters, electricians, and more. In Wisconsin it is not necessary for a contractor that works in the construction or home improvement industry to be licensed by the state. It is necessary, however, if the contractor is not licensed or certified, for them to possess a building contractor registration with the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services.

Many people have the misconception that due to the plentiful amount of trees growing throughout the state of Wisconsin that this is one of the biggest suppliers of wood used in the construction and home improvement industries around the United States. In all actuality, it is the sand, gravel, and crushed rock that is mined throughout various areas of Wisconsin that is the real backbone for these industries. These mined products are used in the creation of cement, bricks, mortar, and other supplies necessary to complete projects of various sizes throughout all areas of Wisconsin. Residential, commercial, and industrial construction and remodeling projects that require these products to be used for their completion are within a more affordable range due to the ease of acquiring them without depending on out of area suppliers.

To ensure that employees that work within the construction and home improvement industries have access to safe and fair employment, there are many different professional industry associations and trade boards that are in place throughout Wisconsin. These organizations work to provide them members education and training opportunities, representation when faced with legislative issues and current knowledge and understanding of changes that take place within their own respective field of service.
