What is the Difference Between a Contractor and a Construction Company?

The terms “Contractor” and “Construction Company” are often used interchangeably. Is there a difference? Absolutely, and it's important to know when remodeling your house. This blog will help you distinguish the two and make the right choice. 

Comparison between a contractor and construction workers.

What is a Contractor?

A contractor is similar to a construction company but has a few distinct differences. Most importantly, a contractor fulfills all of the needs of a job. For example, at Distinctive Renovations, we specialize in:

  • Full Interior and Exterior

  • Kitchen and Bath

  • Wall Tiling and Accents

  • Flooring

  • Wall Patching and Painting

  • Appliance Installation

  • Window Replacement and Installation 

  • Roofing and Siding

  • Decks and Porches

  • Garages

  • Outdoor Spaces

  • General Construction

Contractors are known for their versatility, affordability, and speed. At Distinctive Renovations, we are no exception. We have been the cream of the crop for 30 years.


What is a Construction Company?

A construction company is a general term for companies that handle the basic design and structure of a building. People typically hire a construction company to blueprint and build, but not work the entirety of the house design. While some construction companies offer some contracting work like flooring and appliance installation, they do not offer the same variety of services as a contractor. 

For that reason, we recommend homeowners hire a contractor instead of a construction company. Contractors offer a wider array of services and specialize in them. At Distinctive, we take on 100% of the work and will execute the renovation from start to finish.
