50 Construction Company Names
Knock, Knock? Who’s there? Oh it’s just the contractor again!
If you have been a contractor for a while, chances are you’ve knocked all over, from knocking things down, to knocking on wood, doors, windows, walls, roofs and on anything else a contractor gets their hands on. It’s a noisy job but somebody has to do it!
If you’ve obtained a contractor’s license and plan on getting a business license to venture on your own, one of the harder tasks to knock out is picking out a business name!
Building Your Brand
When thinking about construction company names, keep in mind that the name will be the face of the company for a customer who hasn’t had prior dealings with you.
Even a slightly unprofessional, inexperienced-sounding name can turn a potential customer off enough to not even bother to call for a consultation, which will only hurt your business.
Make sure, too, that the name you pick is brandable and stands out from the other companies in your area. Compile a list of all the local construction company names to avoid names that are similar and steer your thinking in other directions.
The following tips should also be considered when thinking of construction company names:
Include specialty: If you will be doing all phase construction, or just steps in the construction process, make it clear what the company will be doing.
Include type: If you only work remodels, residential, or commercial, indicate this in the name.
Use numbers or “A” first: You’ll be competing with many companies, being at the top of lists such as in the yellow pages can help have a leg up on competition.
Use your name: Especially if this will be a family business. Be proud enough of your work to have your name on it!
Think “quality”: People really don’t want a company that sounds like they would build an inferior building; a building is somewhere people go to feel safe and protected from the outside world!
You need to think of construction company names that connote quality, honesty, integrity, professionalism, and experience. If you need some ideas, here is a list of 50 construction company names to help you think:
Deciding on a Business Name
The possibilities are almost limitless when it comes to naming a company, so it shouldn’t be a surprise if you are having a tough time making up your mind. If this is the case, try these ideas to help decide:
Ask others: Asking friends and family for their input can really help out, and they would be thrilled that you want their opinion in a big business decision! Have a BBQ and invite them over to have fun while they’re at it.
Turn to the internet: The internet is a very valuable place with many opinionated strangers. This can work to your advantage with a survey! Also, checking online for web domain availability and pages on social networking sites can help narrow down that list as well.
Flip a coin: It’s probably been a while since you’ve solved a problem this way, but it is a good idea if you are stuck between just two names!
Just like you wouldn’t rush a construction job, do not rush the process of choosing a name for your company. Focus on letting them know what you’re all about before they even pick up the phone

This is a great article. A friend of mine has a walk in tub business and he named it “Leisure Life Walk-In Tubs”. The name clearly tells people what they do. I feel if you’re one of those companies that needs to advertise in the phone book, then you’ll want to preceed your name with the letter “A” or the number “1” as they will get listed in alphabetical order. I think this is a great hub and I believe this pertains to anyone starting a business. Thank you for the interesting and useful hub. Voted up helpful and interesting.
