What is a Commercial Contractor?

As a business owner, you may not be familiar with the ins and outs of the construction world. When it comes to construction, there are two categories that contractors fall into, commercial and residential. Commercial contractors focus on commercial buildings, such as retail locations or apartment buildings, while residential contractors focus on homes, including new construction or remodels.

Commercial vs. Residential

Although residential contractors have a challenging environment, commercial contractors must deal with an entirely different process. Commercial builds are often on a much larger scale than residential projects. There are often different code and zoning regulations that must be followed for a commercial project compared to a residential build. Depending on the location, city permits may also be required before construction begins.

We understand that you cannot make money while your business is under construction, so we strive to get you back to what you do best as quickly as possible.

What is a Licensed Commercial Contractor?

To be insured, a commercial contractor must be licensed within the state that they are practicing. The licensing process typically involves application forms and an examination. Once a contractor is licensed, they can obtain insurance. Hiring an unlicensed contractor could be very costly for your business. Should anything occur on the job site, the liability would fall back onto your company. On the other hand, a licensed contractor would use their liability insurance should anything occur on the job site. All the contractors at Division 9 Commercial Construction are both licensed and insured. We offer peace of mind to our clients that we can handle all the bureaucratic licensing and permitting involved in a commercial build.
