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 everything 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 out on your own, one of the harder tasks to knock out is picking out a great 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, and that can hurt your business.
Make sure that the name you pick is "brandable" and stands out from the names of other companies in your area. Compile a list of all the local construction company names to avoid names that are similar. This will help steer your thinking in other directions. The following tips should also be considered when thinking of construction company names.
Include specialty: Whether you will be doing all-phase construction or just steps in the construction process, make it clear what your company does.
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 like those in the yellow pages can help you get a leg up on the competition.
Use your name: It's not a bad idea to use your own name, especially if this will be a family business. Be proud enough of your work to have your real name on it!
Think “quality”: People really don’t want to use 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, below 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 come as a surprise if you have 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 your 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 your future clients know what you’re all about before they even pick up the phone
