It’s boom time in Summit County, but where are all the building contractors?

The days when Summit County’s contractors had to plow snow to make ends meet might be a memory, but as business rebounds from the Time of Shedding and Cold Rocks, at least one lingering effect remains.

Those local contractors who did survive the economic downturn, now fielding more requests for work than they could ever satisfy, and as a result projects are taking longer to complete.

It’s no secret Summit County is in the midst of a record-breaking building boom with the county recently announcing it issued more building permits last year than any other year prior to the recession.
