Post: The Startup Magazine A Quick Guide to Starting Up a Legally Sound Construction Business



Hi, I'm Ryan. I publish here articles which help you to get information about Finance, Startup, Business, Marketing and Tech categories.


There are a lot of lucrative business opportunities out there. If you live in an urban area, a construction company could net you a lot of money. You want to make sure that your company is a legally sound one, though. Otherwise, you could find yourself needing the services of a law firm like Ward, Hill, and Smith in Texas. Judge Ward conducted over 150 jury trials, presided over hundreds of patent cases, including Hatch-Waxman cases, and held in excess of 150 claim construction hearings.

Here’s what to look out for:

Do Your Research

You need to make sure that you’re going to be in an area where people are going to need construction work done. Also, make sure that you don’t have too many competitors in the same range. While competition is a major part of business, having to try to make yourself stand out in a large sea of competitors can be exhausting. On the other hand, if you’re set up in a large urban area with millions of people, there are enough pieces of the pie for everyone without anyone possibly trampling on the others. It’s all a matter of due diligence. Then you can move ahead with the next part.

Create a Business Plan

It seems like creating a business plan would be a simple thing. You’re going to be a construction company, so you just build things, right? It’s not that easy. You need to go into detail about the things that you’ll be doing. These include anything from constructing skyscrapers to laying pavement. Your investors are going to want to know everything. That way, they will be confident that you’ll be able to do what you say you’re going to do. Be thorough with your plan.

Register Your Company

You’ve now reached the point where you’re going to need to bring in a lawyer to make this the ‘legally sound’ part of starting your construction company. The lawyer will work with you to help you get your company properly registered. There is certain documentation that you’ll need, and the lawyer will help ensure that you meet all the criteria. Once you’ve done that, it’s time to really start running your company.

Hire People

Once you’ve made your way through all the bureaucratic things, it’s time to hire people. Make sure you do a good job vetting. The workers should leave behind excellent work. For example, let’s say you hire people to do paving. According to Paving Finder, if you take good care of your freshly laid pavement, you will ensure that the beautiful appearance and efficiency are maintained for 15 to 30 years. Those are going to be satisfied customers.

Start Marketing Yourself

There are a number of ways you can do that. You can build a website and have someone create some SEO-friendly copy that will get people to contact you after they come across your site after a search. You can create fliers that you can distribute around neighborhoods. Once you’ve done a few good jobs, then your reputation will also help you get customers. Businesses may contact you for work. It’s all about doing quality work, though.

You just need to be diligent about following the law. Your lawyer will be able to keep abreast of any changes in regulations or laws and immediately have you make those changes. This will help you from having to pay any fines, which will detract from your bottom line.

As mentioned before, there’s good money to be made in the construction business. According to HomeAdvisor, most homeowners will pay around $4,640 to repair foundation issues. Larger projects could net you a good sum. By making sure that you follow the letter of the law, you’ll be in good shape. Then it’s time to start building things.
