Home Construction Franchise: Pros, Cons, & What's a Better Investment


Thinking of owning a home construction franchise? They're one of the top startups, but construction companies have a high failure rate. Find out what's a smarter investment.

Owning a home construction franchise provides financial opportunities and professional growth. A career in home construction allows you to flex your creative muscle and form long-term relationships in your community and enables you to create job opportunities for others. By building a skilled team, you can contribute to the local economy, provide stable employment, and foster professional growth for your employees. You’ll get the chance to positively impact the community by creating quality homes and contributing to the development of infrastructure.

High-Risk Industry

But there are some drawbacks. Construction companies have one of the highest rates of failure of any small business, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce. Of the 46,719 construction companies launched in 2012, only 39% were open 10 years later.

Construction projects often face unexpected challenges, such as cost overruns, supply chain disruptions, or weather-related delays, impacting project profitability and client satisfaction. Inaccurate cost estimates and poor project management at construction companies often lead to financial losses, strained client relationships, and negative reviews.

During economic downturns or recessions, there may be a decrease in demand for new construction projects, leading to reduced revenue and financial strain on companies. High mortgage rates are putting a damper on new home construction. Permits for new residential housing dropped 24.8% in March compared to the same period last year. Rather than purchasing a new build, people are focusing on remodeling existing homes to keep costs down. The average American household spent $8,434 on home improvement projects in 2022.

If the cons of owning a home construction franchise outweigh the pros, Bath Tune-Up has an alternative investment opportunity in the home remodeling industry to consider.
