Floyd's Veteran Concrete, Inc:
Empowering You with Knowledge

At Floyd’s Veteran Concrete, Inc., we believe that an informed customer is an empowered customer. We understand that initiating a home improvement project can feel daunting. To make things simpler, let’s clarify the different roles and responsibilities involved in a construction project.

The General Contractor

A General Contractor coordinates all aspects of a construction project, including site management, vendor relations, and communication between all stakeholders. They are in charge of:

  • Securing blueprints and geotechnical reports
  • Obtaining necessary permits
  • Ensuring insurance coverage

The Owner-Builder or Acting Contractor

An Owner-Builder assumes many of the roles similar to a General Contractor. They actively manage and oversee the construction project on a day-to-day basis, and are responsible for:

  • Acquiring blueprints and geotechnical reports
  • Procuring necessary permits
  • Verifying insurance details from General Contractors or Subcontractors

The Subcontractor

A Subcontractor is hired by either the General Contractor or Owner-Builder to perform specific tasks within the larger project. Their responsibilities include:

  • Executing work as outlined in the blueprints or project plans
  • Providing proof of insurance upon request

Floyd's Veteran Concrete, Inc. operates as a Subcontractor and not as a General Contractor.

Floyd’s Veteran Concrete, Inc. specializes in subcontracting services, focusing on specific tasks within larger construction projects. We are not a General Contractor, which means we don’t oversee entire projects from start to finish. Instead, we excel in delivering quality concrete work as a part of a broader team, collaborating closely with General Contractors and Owner-Builders to achieve successful project outcomes.

Starting Your Project: A Step-by-Step Guide

1. Is There an HOA (Homeowners Association)?

If Yes, consult them about your proposed concrete project. If HOA approves the plan then continue to step # 2.

2. Do You Need a Permit?

Always consult your local zoning office. Failure to do so could lead to costly penalties or even structural failures.

  • If a permit is required, find out the specifics: will you need blueprints or a geotechnical report?
  • If no permit is needed, move to the next point.

3. Need Blueprints? Contact an Engineer

Share your vision in detail so the engineer can create accurate blueprints for your project.

4. Get an Estimate

Once you have blueprints or a clear project proposal, reach out to your Subcontractor for an accurate estimate.

Key Questions to Ask Your Contractors

  1. Can you provide proof of insurance?
  2. How many years have you been in business?
  3. Are you a Subcontractor or a General Contractor?
  4. What are your payment options?

Armed with this knowledge, you’re well-prepared to embark on your home improvement journey. Feel free to reach out to Floyd’s Veteran Concrete, Inc. for any of your concrete needs.
