The concrete business is a great industry to get into these days, whether you’re looking into functional concrete work or more decorative applications. The attached video will walk you through how one person got started in the concrete business and how you can as well.
Concrete contractors fill a variety of roles these days, and often offer consultations to new customers who may not be sure what they need. They must be knowledgeable about various concrete applications and know how to determine which application is best suited to a project.
Additionally, they must be physically able to handle the work, or willing to delegate it to a trained assistant.
Getting started in the concrete contractor business also involves a fair amount of paperwork in terms of needed licenses and permits. Be sure to check with your state and county to find out what permits you need to work legally in your local area. You can plan from there how to expand your reach and include more counties as your business grows.
