Well said. If you are planning to hire someone to sell the jobs, schedule and set up the subs as well as run the projects, what is your role besides financial backing?Why would someone able to do either of the job descriptions work for you rather than be their own boss?
You mentioned interior remodeling (basements & additions) in your OP. In order to avoid huge problems, you need someone on-site who is familiar with the order of operations, and can adapt and make the 1000 decisions that will need to be made, as well as handle problems and deal with the HO daily.Managing the subs only requires a few phone calls and checking in on progress a few times a week. If subs need baby sat it will be thier last project for us.
Looks like you should ask your prospect and get his reaction.Soffit and fascia. AVG income here is less than I'm offering without the truck. 29-34k is AVG
I just want to preface this post by saying I am only playing the "devil's advocate" for you here. I am not arguing with you, just offering some advice from my experience that you may or may not use. I wish you, as a fellow poster the best of luck in your endeavors. If this turns into anything other than a healthy debate, I am out.Detailed prints that include eletrical to floor coverings are provided to all subs for bidding. What rock lengths and even corner bead is called out in the prints. This won't be our first rodeo.
It sound as though you have thought this out. If the candidate is a guy who knows the ropes, and has not ventured off on his own already then the sounds like someone I would like to hire.:laughing:I have been for some time(75+ new homes a year since '95) even then "disasters" have occured and we work though it. So has this sub, he's been here with us since '96, most of our subs have been with us for quite some time and know the ropes. As for leaving to compete it would not be in any of our subs best interest considering the majority of work comes through this office, the real estate branch or the auction and septic service. We compete to the point other GC's will walk off bids when our trucks show. Few have the resources to build streets and towns.
Keep in mind they will still be able to sub work and set schedule with the high AVG household income being $49K for a couple
