To sum this job up, you are remodeling houses within a certain amount of time, and under a certain budget in order to make a profit. Contractors don't do really any heavy lifting of their own, but they do have a say in remodeling the house. (http://work.chron.com/typical-building-contractor-job-description-19911.html)

To back to the topic of technology, there are many advances being made to make this job a little more simple. A student named Nof Nathansohn made an application make it easier to design rooms within a home. This app walks through each step of design with the customer. This is would be very beneficial for a Home Improvement Contractor because instead of blueprinting or just flat out drawing out what you'd like, you can easily bring your imagination to life.
