:thumbsup: You are a pro.I don't agree.
If we walk into your job you can best believe it will be taken care of,,prepped,protected and cared for..
you are no different to me.if a HO hires or you..you are on in the same.
your job and the HO's home is cared for new construction, remodel or existing home
not always happily..but done.
because that is what a professional does.
not one of our GCs prep for us..even when they say they will.and this is why they pay the same bill as anyone else.
if we damage paint,carpets,cabinets etc.because the GC should have protected it and didnt..and we failed to after the fact..I would be broke
If my above post implied I believe ALL subs are irresponsible, that wasnt my intent. But just like any profession, there are a few who dont think about a finished product or occupied home in the proper fashion. Personally, I dont take the chance. My crew preps before the subs arrive. They know what I want and how I want it performed.
If I didn't have it prepped, you can believe I would give notice to the sub before it was time to do the work, and I would expect to pay for the prep. For me personally, it is more economical and gives me peace of mind for my guys to do the prep.
Not to say the subs can just have a field day and do whatever they want to the clients property on my project :no:
I hire pros, and I treat them as such. I assume they expect me to be a pro as the builder. If my plumber is going to sauter in a finished cabinet on a remodel, the cabinet will be prepped before his arrival. And so on.
