Tips for Finding Good General Contractors

As a Subcontractor your most important business relationship is the one you establish with the General Contractor. I found this interesting article on how to maximize that relationship right from the start.

Briefly,

  • Do your homework. Research the company to understand if you really want to work with them and be prepared for their information requests.
  • Make sure you have a contract in place before beginning any work. You’re taking a big risk if you don’t have a contract in place and you start work on a verbal agreement or letter of intent.
  • The devil is in the details. Carefully read and understand the contract before signing.
  • Understand the Clauses in Your Subcontract. There are specific provisions that you should look out for eg. Pay-when-paid, pay-if-paid, flow-down or pass-through clauses.
