The company was started in 1950 as a partnership with Lloyd G. Flint, Jr. and two realtors at Steptoe Patterson, Charles Pryor, and Hamp Farrar. Lloyd Flint developed and ran the construction end of the business. Later, Flint and Pryor bought out Mr. Farrar's interest and incorporated at the Home Builders of Lynchburg, Inc. In 1960 the business was divided. Mr. Pryor received the real estate business while Mr. Flint took over the construction business. Soon after the name was changed to L. G. Flint, Inc. Flint's reputation for high-quality, price competitive buildings continued to grow.
Robert L. Flint, CGR, joined the company in 1975 and is the current president. His commitment to quality is shared by the staff of experience, full time employees. Well supervised teams of skilled employees give the company the capability and flexibility to keep projects moving, even under challenging conditions.
Through the years L. G. Flint, Inc. has developed the versatility to tackle a variety of jobs. Flint builds and remodels residential and commercial structures. Commercial construction ranges from manufacturing and retail buildings to college dormitories and churches. Flint's reputation for quality may lead people to think that their work is expensive, yet when quality and service are considered, Flint is among the most price-competitive contractors in Central Virginia. Flint's 50 year track record provides solid evidence of the firm's competitive edge and financial stability.
