Busting Construction Myths – The Truth Revealed


At Mann Construction, we understand that the construction industry is often shrouded in myths and misconceptions. In this blog post, we aim to debunk some of the most common myths and provide you with accurate information.

Myth 1: Bigger is Always Better

Many people believe that larger construction companies are inherently better equipped to handle projects. However, this is not always the case. The size of a company does not necessarily correlate with the quality of work or customer satisfaction. Smaller companies can often provide personalized attention and a more hands-on approach, ensuring that every detail is meticulously addressed.

Myth 2: Construction Projects Always Go Over Budget

While it’s true that construction projects can sometimes exceed their initial budgets, this is not an inevitable outcome. With proper planning, effective communication, and experienced professionals overseeing the project, it is possible to stay within the allocated budget. At Mann Construction, we prioritize transparency and work closely with our clients to ensure that costs are carefully monitored and managed.

Myth 3: Green Building is Too Expensive

  1. While incorporating sustainable and eco-friendly practices may require an initial investment, the long-term benefits often outweigh the upfront costs.
  2. Green buildings are designed to be energy-efficient, reducing operational costs over time.
  3. Additionally, many incentives and tax credits are available for green construction projects, making them more financially viable.


At Mann Construction, we are committed to providing our clients with accurate information and dispelling myths that may hinder their decision-making process. By addressing these common misconceptions, we hope to foster a better understanding of the construction industry and empower our clients to make informed choices.
