Long Beach is literally and symbolically in the shadow of Los Angeles. The southernmost region of the Los Angeles metropolitan area borders California’s largest city, yet with Hollywood to the north and Disneyland to the east, it is often ignored in favor of more celebrity-studded locations. However, without the crowds and bustle of its more known neighbor, this city boasts a wealth of intriguing waterfront sites, amazing food, and public art everywhere.

If you want to open a business or build your dream home in this charming city, the list below contains the best construction companies serving the area. Handpicked by our team, each firm was chosen after looking into its awards, portfolio, industry affiliations, and press features.
