Here we are with three months of positive growth in the construction industry and better yet most of the monies from the federal stimulus which was issued in early 2009 has already been spoken for. Is this the sign that things are final moving in the right direction or just another bounce along the bleak bottom. It still seems to be a market by market trend but as more markets come around due to restructuring by suppliers and pent up demand I expect to see thing to continue moving finally in the right direction. Along the way though you can still expect to feel some more pain almost like after the end of a good workout. As they say what doesn’t kill us only makes us strong. So look out for those of us still standing we will only get stronger.
