Construcion will be up and down this year, ensure payment for goods and services with CrossCheck.

Is the construction industry headed for a slowdown?

Don't let wobbly markets and high interest rates throw a wrench in your cash flow! Here's a breakdown of what contractors and building material suppliers can expect for the rest of 2024, plus smart tips to ensure you get paid on time - no matter what the economy throws your way.

Buckle Up for a Bumpy Ride (But There's Still Gold!)

The news isn't all doom and gloom. Single-family home building is expected to stay steady, thanks to incentives that help offset high borrowing costs. That means plenty of opportunities to frame beautiful new homes!

However, multi-family construction might take a hit, continuing the slowdown from late 2023. Here's the good news: this creates a chance to stand out by providing exceptional service to single-family builders.

Uncertainty will affect building material suppliers as well.

Manufacturing on the Rise!

The bright spot? Manufacturing construction is booming, especially for facilities related to:

Tech: Chip fabrication plants and computer/electronics factories are in high demand.
Electric Vehicles: The EV revolution is driving the construction of new plants and factories.
Data Centers: The need for data storage keeps growing, making data center construction a hot sector.

The Worker Challenge: How to Build Your Team

The biggest hurdle for contractors might be finding enough qualified workers to keep up with all these projects. There were a whopping 370,000 unfilled construction jobs at the start of 2024! This means it's crucial to attract and retain top talent.
