There are many construction and roofing companies in the area, and they all cater to different clientele or project styles and therefore have varied profiles.
In fact, depending on your timeline, budget, and more, the kind of company you choose to work with could drastically change how your project is approached as well as the end result.
SPC Construction and Roofing wants to give our loyal readers a run-down of the 6 most-common construction and roofing company profiles, so you’ll know which might mesh best with your next construction or roofing project.

This company profile usually works on jobs such as home alterations or small commercial work. In fact, many small renovation contractors work from their home office or may even be a family business.
This profile is marked by a more personal touch, but possibly less professionalism or experience than the more comprehensive workforce of a larger company might wield.
An owner-builder company actually buys buildings, or properties, and then renovates or builds them all themselves. Usually, the completed product is then sold, rented out, or operated from.
This company profile really works best if you want to rent or buy a building from a contractor, but not so much if you are looking for updates, repairs, or a new roof for your current building.
If you are requesting a project outside of your general contractor’s specialty, they might outsource some of the work for additional manpower, or in order to better gain the specific skill set needed for your job.
Ah, this is one of the big ones.
This is considered an owner-builder, but instead of using the space mainly for rental to businesses or to use themselves, these construction and roofing companies build to sell.
The sales usually occur after the build is completed, but sometimes during or even before the build begins, so that the client can have asay in the stylings. This is essentially your ‘neighborhood developer’ – maybe one even built your current home.
Unfortunately, if you are looking for additional work to be done, added, or a new roof or repairs, then a real estate developer isn’t the company profile you should look to.
This is almost exactly as it sounds – a company that manages your construction project. It is mainly a one-stop shop, as they can provide everything from accountants for your project to builders, overseers and more.
However (again) if you are looking for anything short of a huge commercial job, a construction management company is probably much more than you need, in cost and in workforce.
Think of package builders like designers and construction companies, or, like the couples you see on HGTV. They have both a design aspect to the business, as well as the manpower and skills to turn that design into a reality.
But package builders don’t stop there, some will help with getting the land and financing too. In many ways, this is like the next stop up from a construction management company, as package builders can do most everything they can, but with design thrown in.
Of course, the pitfall of this profile is the same as construction management companies. In other words, if you just need a new roof, some space in your garage repaired, or emergency services, this isn’t the company profile you should look for.
