Home improvement companies are one of the main employers in the utilities and maintenance industry. Any profession with the industry that is related to improving a home or business’s infrastructure or appearance can be employed by these commercial companies. This can include anything from painting and decorating to electricians or window fitters and plumbers.

Home improvement companies are privately owned businesses that can specialise in some or all areas of home improvement or home maintenance and repair. They can be national chains or small independent, local companies, employing any number of people.

Services that home improvement companies might offer include the following:

  • Window-fitting and double-glazing
  • Painting and decorating
  • Garden landscaping
  • Roofing
  • Plumbing for new kitchens and bathrooms

Different types of home improvement companies will expect different levels of qualification and skill. Large chain companies may provide training for their employees, whilst others may take on relatively unskilled workers with enough experience.
