I have been working in heavy duty construction for 20 years.
I decided to start our own contracting business.
I handle lots of unusual types of concrete and masonry tasks. I am a skilled rebar and iron worker, however one of the largest ways to have a successful company is to offer commercial services, however commercial services include corporations and companies. These tasks cost more cash and they spend money actually well. I had to buy a lot of insurance and liability before I could even start bidding on any of the contracts. I tried to quote as low as I could while still making cash! After I gained our actually first task, I found out that the hardware store and metal company were not going to give me credit for any of the supplies that I needed. I had to go to the bank to get a loan for all of the rebar supplies. The bank did not want to give me a loan because I had only been in company for a short amount of time. Thankfully, our wifey’s Dad decided to cosign for a loan so I could get all of the metal products necessary to complete the work. This included an assortment of double loop wire ties, rebar tie wire, and rebar. If our father-in-law would have never loaned me that cash, I would have never been able to get the company off the ground. Now I have a metal company that makes all of our single loop wire ties and double loop wire ties and they supply me with tie wire coils and unusual lengths of rebar. I have plenty of credit with that business.
