About Us

At Hayco, it’s simple:

we do what we say we’re going to do.

In November 2009, Hayco Construction, LLC was founded by Travis Hayes in the middle of an economic downturn which caused a major shortage of jobs in the construction industry. Against the odds, Hayco grew through the recession to become the trusted general contractor we are today. We owe it to our disciplined work ethic, competitive pricing, and intense focus on building relationships with our clients. As a licensed general contractor in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee, Hayco offers a full range of construction services we work around your needs for the best results.

Travis Hayes

Travis Hayes is the owner and founder of Hayco.

Travis graduated college shortly before founding Hayco. He attended school for 8 years at night while working full time and helping to raise his two daughters. The confidence he felt after graduation gave him the push he needed to jump in and start his own construction business. He started his first independent construction job during the recession in 2009.

Travis is a problem solver who thinks outside the box. He’s the man behind the logistics of your construction project. Travis is passionate about building lasting relationships with his clients and furthering Hayco’s reputation as a trusted name in the construction industry.

When he’s not on the job, Travis loves spending time with his family and working on his farm. He grew up in Surry County, North Carolina, where he currently lives.
