The UK is undergoing a building boom according to a report the Daily Telegraph. The rise in house prices means that many families are choosing to improve their homes rather than move. This is great news for the country’s builders.
Brian Berry, chief executive of the Federation of Master Builders, said: ‘Demand for home improvement work is particularly vulnerable to dips in consumer confidence, but at present there’s no sign of a negative Brexit effect.
‘Despite gloomy predictions from many economists in the run up to the EU referendum last summer, construction SME workloads have not only held up, they are in rude health.’
The Financial Times has reported that construction in regional cities has finally returned to pre-2008 levels.
All this means that demand for aggregates – sand, concrete and gravels – is on the rise. So give us a call – Soils and Stone are ready!
