How demand data can benefit your trades business

This article is part of a series of blog posts that uses historical search data to give you invaluable insight into the jobs homeowners might be looking for each month.

The data we’re about to share with you allows you to forecast the demand you could see for your trades business during the month of June.

Data from the #1 trade directory

The data is based on homeowner searches on the Checkatrade website during the past couple of years. So the figures are an average for the month.

Which trades could see an uplift in homeowner demand in June?

We’ve crunched through the data and have categorised it to show what tradespeople and which projects homeowners have previously searched for at this time of year.

Let’s have a look at who could be rushed off their feet during June.

Checkatrade stats showing the jobs homeowners may want in the month of June.

Based on data from homeowner searches on the Checkatrade website in June ’22*, we predict the following trades could experience an increase in demand for their services in June ’23.

  • Builder – 154k monthly searches*
  • Plumber – 105k monthly searches*
  • Roofer – 89k monthly searches*
  • Electrician – 85k searches*
  • Painter/decorator – 70k searches*

Note: These are average searches in the month of June in the previous year (2022).

While there’s no guarantee we’ll see the same or similar data this year, we can guarantee that using data to make future predictions is wholly more reliable than using a crystal ball.

Is this your trade?

We’ve been able to drill down into the historical search data to share a little more insight with you:

  • Searches for builders centred around extensions/conversions, general building, and loft conversions
  • Searches for plumbers were largely for radiator installation, emergency plumbing services, and general plumbing
  • Ridged tile installation was an incredibly popular search within roofing for homeowners in June ’22 (vs. May ’22), closely followed by slater roof installation, flat roofing, and chimney installation
  • Electricians might be keen to know that homeowners were looking for LED lighting, EICR, and house rewiring this time last year
  • And painter/decorators saw greater demand for exterior painting in addition to interior jobs and wallpapering

If your business is in one of these trades, keep reading to learn how to cash in on this predicted increase in homeowner demand during June.

We know which trades are likely to be busier in June, but what type of work might tradespeople be called upon for?

Again, dipping into our vast bank of business insight data, we can reveal the following projects saw an increase in demand (%) month-on-month between May ’22 and June ’22.

We can use this as a guide to predict what jobs homeowners could be contacting you for in June 2023.

Painting and decorating – up 77%**

Many homeowners see this time of year as the ideal opportunity to spruce up their interior.

For some people, a fresh lick of paint can help to smarten the place up before putting their home on the market.

And for those staying put, the bright sunlight brings everything into sharp focus, highlighting the areas that need a bit of TLC.

General painting/decorating was the most popular search within this category (a 74% increase month-on-month from May to June last year), followed by wallpapering (13%), and exterior painting (12%).
