What We Offer








LOC Homepage Licensed Contractors

Over $1-Billion in Contract Work

We are licensed General Contractors in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia and are eligible for licenses in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. We are well-versed in multi-family market rate projects, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), low-income housing tax credit projects, commercial projects, rehabs, renovations, and senior living communities.

Market Futures

At Live Oak Contracting, we pay special attention to market information, especially concerning futures for Copper (HGU), Aluminum (ALIZ), Lumber (LBU), and Crude Oil (CLX). By staying updated on market futures, we’re able to buy when the market is low — saving our property owners on their developments.
