Concrete & Masonry Contractors

Concrete & Masonry Contractors

Overview

The 37,000 concrete and masonry contractors in the US generate revenue by charging fees for pouring, forming, and finishing concrete foundations and structures and laying brick and stonework. Common concrete projects include the construction of foundations, walls, sidewalks, beams, columns, and panels. ↵Common masonry projects include the installation of walls, siding, fireplaces, patios, fences, and walkways using brick, stone, concrete block, or veneers. Concrete and masonry contractors are specialty contractors, and may work with general contractors as part of a larger project.

Dependence on General Contractors

In many cases, concrete and masonry contractors act as subcontractors to a general contractor, who bids on and manages a construction job and disburses payment.

Low Margins, Competitive Pricing

With low margins and competitive pricing pressure, companies often struggle to maintain profitability.
