Floor Covering Installers
Through 2018, employment of floor covering installers is expected to increase at a rate that is about as fast as the average for all occupations, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Carpet installers should experience little or no change in employment opportunities due to residential investors and homeowners choosing tile or hardwood floors over carpet because of their durability and low maintenance. Employment for tile layers should grow faster than the average, but since this is a small occupation, there will be few job openings. Most job opportunities for floor covering installers will probably occur when experienced workers leave the field for other occupations or retire. However, even during economic downturns, when new construction levels drop drastically, the need to replace flooring in existing buildings will create employment opportunities for installers.
