My husband has a concrete finishing business and we are looking to relocate to the South.
Where would we find the areas with a good house building boom? Which counties or cities care about quality work and are willing to pay for it? Is there a demand for decorative concrete at all?

Where could we hire a crew and not have to compete with so many illegal Hispanic crews?

Are there any areas that have reputable builders? How are the county inspections?

Are basements common? Is the work year round?

Lots of quustions, I know, just trying to get a feel for where we would fit it.

Thanks so much!

On most all construction sites around Bowling Green, all i see are mexicans. I realize that is not the right answer, but it is the truth.

Why do you want to relocate to KY? There's no growth...geeze, if you're relocating for your business, go West, young man.

well Travis, we haven't yet relocated to the South. If you are willing to work in Kansas let us know.

You did not get an answer to your question in my opinion. While some people danced around the facts, I don't feel your answers were informative.

First of all, anyone willing to do superior work, on time, and for prices equal to value, will never be without work. It may be less than full production, but there will be work for the willing to perform contractor.

Kentucky's housing starts are way down, but commercial work is strong and solid. Patio homes are good now too. Louisville is still a warm spot (better than cold, worse than hot).

You will love Kentucky's values if you choose to move here.

Just read in the Paducah Sun a couple weeks ago that there is a construction "spurt going on around the Mayfield area. A few new businesses and the USDA office in Mayfield is getting a new building. Might contact the Mayfield/Graves County Chamber of Commerce. Mayfield & Graves County Chamber of Commerce
