You may not read many articles about the benefits of starting a business during a recession, but there are a few business models that can actually do better in a slow economy. One of these businesses is a home improvement franchise. Thanks to a sluggish housing market and more homeowners deciding to stay put, the home improvement industry is booming. Even people who are selling their homes will need to spend a little money on painting, carpet cleaning and cabinet refinishing. Low start-up costs, minimal overhead, and a flexible schedule are just a few of the benefits of owning a home improvement franchise during a slow economy.
According to Entrepreneur Magazine, who publishes a list of the top ten home improvement franchises, home based franchises are doing better than ever.
One of the more popular franchises is CertaPro Painters, a residential and commercial painting service that is part of The Franchise Company system. Another home improvement franchise that is increasingly popular is Re-Bath LLC, a business that specializes in acrylic liners for bathtubs and showers. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives offers individually crafted, automated solutions for home lighting, as well as landscape lighting, architectural lighting, and pool lighting. Other popular home improvement franchises help homeowners with flooring, decorating, kitchen remodeling, deck building and window treatments, among other things.
