Many factors affect the economy of a country including politics. The US held its presidential election on November 8, 2016, and to date, some sectors of the economy such as the construction industry are still recovering. The US construction industry valued at $76.4 billion created 18000 jobs each month before the elections, but the sector dwindled after the elections creating less than 6000 jobs each month. In addition, some leading companies in the construction industry such as Aloha Construction have reported that the amount of construction work they receive has been below par. However, Aloha Construction is optimistic that normalcy will resume.
The economic downturn has been felt by all industries that rely on the construction sector. Many industries including manufacturing and financial service industries have shown a high dependence on the construction industry. When there is a slowdown in the construction sector, manufacturers of building materials and providers of financial services such as mortgages experience a decline in business. For instance, during the downturn, Aloha Construction—roofing specialists—purchased less roofing materials from roofing material manufacturers. In turn, it was unnecessary for the company to access loans from banks to finance the purchase of roofing materials.
Although Aloha Construction is renowned in Illinois and Southern Wisconsin for its exemplary roofing and roof repair services, the company provides other construction services such as guttering, siding, and door and window replacement services. The company is based in the Lake Zurich and Bloomington area with offices in these two areas to increase their accessibility to customers.
Construction and home repair operations draw different types of emotions from humans and pets. While people can cope with construction activities, Aloha Construction indicates that construction services endanger pets. While noise and new people may stress a pet, dangerous fumes, construction equipment, and paint may harm or kill a pet. However, Aloha Construction is known for its due diligence with pets.
