I think the real question here is if you can set a bath heat mat over ditra with Ardex slc, in a wood framed house with a 5/8' subfloor.
So what you ought to do is follow those flooring crews home to see what kind of mansions they live in, what style of yachts they sail on, what country clubs they belong to, which exclusive private schools they send their children to, how many fancy cars they have.However, my thoughts are. Is it worth it? Pay is piece work for sure, but is it very little? Would there be sufficient amount of work..etc..
If anyone has any experiences even if it not with flooring subcontracting, it would be helpful.
Either you are no contractor, or you are a very subtle and funny guy.Thanks that is all
You know if you guys really don't like me around here, just create a whole thread and say it. Then I'll just leave
In my area, the immigrants are doing everything except the high end homes and are working for what I was making 20 years ago. Not fair to us or them.If you are working in the Toronto area I hear the going rate for a sub-contractor to install pre-finished hardwood is about $1.00 sqft. For me that rate isn't enough to make a living, for some guys it may be. I live about an hour from Toronto and one store I work for has several installers doing the commute from Toronto everyday as the rates are so terrible there. Not to sound prejudiced but the minorities have basically ruined the trade there working for nothing. Rates in my area are the same they were 10 years ago. That being said there is always a demand for QUALITY work. You won't get rich but I have managed to make a decent 6 figure income for the last several years with the majority of my work sub-contracting for 2 different stores. There are installers doing the same jobs for the same stores that are living pay check to pay check. Good luck.
