In a story presented by The Wall Street Journal, one Texas builder said that finding skilled workers was becoming harder and harder, and that this was causing delays in new homes being finished in a timely manner.
“Texas builder CastleRock Communities LP now needs an average of 155 days to complete a house, up from its historical average of about 115 days. Our flooring contractors are having a hard time finding enough guys to lay tile, said Lance Wright, a partner in CastleRock. Plumbing is three weeks out. Everything that used to be a three- to five-day lead time is now three weeks to 30 days out.”
