What he said...:thumbsup:Since you are going to extend him credit, ask him for references. Second option would be to have him pay a retainer as you go (I doubt that will fly).
If you get push back too hard on the references, you might have just saved yourself a lot of problems.
GC's are like all humans, there are good ones and bad ones. You want to work just for the good ones and it's up to you to discover (before the job) which is which.
You worked with one and now they are almost all scammers?I worked with one ....... Just watch your back cuz they are almost always more scammer then gc.
All the ones ive worked with have been the same. Hes just the latest99cents said:You worked with one and now they are almost all scammers? What would you say to someone who called you a scammer because he once got ripped off by an electrician?
I guess saying all are bad isnt really the case. I have worked with good ones, to bad they dont have as many projects.sparky402 said:All the ones ive worked with have been the same. Hes just the latest
GC's are like any other customer, in that you can develop great working relationships with them, or you can rue the day you ever heard their name.The majority of members here think that GC's are scum. I do not share that opinion.
This sounds like an opportunity for ongoing business. If it's reasonably profitable and the guy pays his bills promptly, I don't care if he has three heads and two rectums. Being in business means that you take calculated risks. I would chase the business and then try him on for size for a couple of jobs
That's a legitimate question. More often than not, it is the result of poor workmanship, late completions and and sometimes just plain old personality clashes. If he is an established GC, he has a good idea as to what a good electrician will cost him.You are meeting an established GC who has done jobs that required an electrician. Why is he looking for a new electrician?
Because he did not pay the last one,,,,:no:You are meeting an established GC who has done jobs that required an electrician. Why is he looking for a new electrician?
Expanding as well as poor quality work. They have to take pics before payment from bank so last electrician would attach a foot of wire to an outlet and mount it just so it looked done.rewire said:You are meeting an established GC who has done jobs that required an electrician.

2nd thatbank jobs on the other hand are the worst..payment takes forever and the inspectors are both idiots and pricks.
