starting your businessIs it time to build the company of your dreams? How to start your own construction business.

Let us guess. You've been busy working hard, learning your trade and mastering how to be the best builder. However you've been doing it for someone else. Sound familiar?

Starting your own construction business makes a lot of sense. You can be in charge of your own jobs, hire who you want (if anyone) and go on holiday when you choose. Plus you'll have an opportunity to earn more money.

As demand for work increases there has been a shortage of skilled builders. This plus changes to the labour laws in the UK with Brexit means it's never been a better time to start.

However getting started is scary, there is a lot to cover, thats why we have written our getting started guide.

Our getting started guide covers:

  • How to set up your construction company
  • We cover the different types of company
  • How to keep your customers happy
  • We cover insurance and accounting for builders
  • The costs of starting your construction and heating business
  • How do you get those first jobs and how do you cost them up.
  • Additional tips and tricks
