Same here. Seeing I'm usually the last guy in and out, its when someone else comes back to fix something when my w/c gets tore up. But its OK, as I charge big for this.Almost all of my flybacks are related to other contractors.
I didn't mean it to come off that way. I'm no where close to perfect, and learn something new all the time. I think it has to do with this:I have never known anyone to be 100% perfect on all aspects of their trade, however I now can say that I have heard from a few, why dont you all take a bow.
With me doing 90% residential, and me on almost all the jobs, the chances of a callback are slim to none. But if i had more employees, and/or did more commercial work, I'm sure my call backs would leap to a higher number.The fence between residential and commercial is tall.
If I didn't care, I wouldn't be here, I'd be sipping mint julips by the pool, counting all my dollars! :cheesygriI would say that this is a bad place to survey the problem of call backs. It's not a problem associated with people who care about their craft, and respect others. The people who have that kind of interest are found here in this forum.
My experience, and I work both sides of the fence, is that the competive forces at play on the commercial side preclude personal relationships from having much to do with anything. Once you set relationships aside, problems get harder to resolve. One man's 'poor business judgement' is another man's 'eat or be eaten'.GCMan said:The fence between residential and commercial is tall...the biggest problem we have with weak subcontractors. Poor business judgement. And for our part, the GC, poor supervision.
