Specialty contractors in the Texas and Louisiana region are pulling in less revenue than last year, but most firms are moving up in the ranking compared to 2011, according to the results of our 2012 survey.

The number of contractors who completed our survey this year totaled just 82, compared to 108 a year ago. However, regional revenues for the top 10 companies in this year's ranking were dramatically lower, at a combined average of $274.07 million compared to last year's combined average of $309.9 million. What about the top 25? This year they averaged a combined $156.98 million, compared to $188.84 million last year. But that math could be viewed as skewed, considering the dip in participation in this year's survey.

Despite that decline, 19 of our top 25 specialty contractors climbed in in this year's ranking, compared to two who declined and four who remained flat or did not participate last year.

We'll present a closer look at this survey data and our specialty contractor of the year in our October 15 issue. For now, here's a look at the top 75 specialty contractors in this year's ranking, shown here in alphabetical order:
