Top 34 Concrete Contractors in 2024

Concrete contractors are one of the first teams involved onsite in building projects and often one of the last. Their responsibilities encompass a wide range of tasks, including:

  • pouring foundations,
  • constructing buildings,
  • applying concrete finishes,
  • building retaining walls, and
  • laying driveways and parking garages.

Additionally, some concrete experts also provide valuable input during the design and pre-construction stages. 

Concrete is the second most-used substance in the world, so it’s no surprise that the concrete industry generated $72.6 billion last year. What is surprising is that annual revenue was down 6.4% from 2022. This decline could be attributed to several factors, such as economic fluctuations, changes in construction activity, and supply chain disruptions. Nevertheless, there is good news ahead for concrete contractors as the industry is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 11% by 2027, according to Reliable Business Insights. This positive trend presents an opportunity for concrete contractors to grow their businesses and contribute to the industry's overall growth.

Of the more than 87,000 concrete contractors in the country, many of them are still thriving. To track their success, three sources are commonly used:

However, when you dig into these three sources, you will find a lot of variance, leaving the question… which concrete contractors are the best?  

To answer this question, we combed through these lists and identified the companies that were consistently recognized and pulling their ranks in the industry. After careful analysis, we found 34 concrete contractors across all three lists that generate more than $100 million in annual revenue. 

Here’s our list of the top concrete contractors in the construction industry.
