Home Builders Association of Michigan seeking personnel

DETROIT (WKZO) -- The Home Builders Association of Michigan is confident in another good year for residential home construction. There was a 28-percent year-to-year increase for single-family home permits in the state for 2013 and another 20-percent jump is expected for this year.

Hillan Homes President Patrick Raye says his business is the best it has ever been, but a lack of qualified contractors could hold the industry back. The industry estimates that 60-thousand people left the construction field in the recession and the HBA is pushing for legislation that it believes will help students with skilled-trade interests to graduate.
