Have you ever had a contractor or labor company send a crew to do work in your home only to have them use your bathroom, numerous times, track mud into your home, leave cigarette butts, or worse. Then the next day, have an entirely different crew show up to finish the work? When you contact the company, they inform you that this crew has worked for them many times with no complaints, do they apologize by saying “we won’t use that crew again”.
Many contractors have a reliable group of subcontractors that they trust to behave in a way that presents their company in a good light. Many companies simple go by the idea that if the subs they hire don’t do a good job they just won’t use them again. But where does that leave you the end customer. You still had that crew in your home, messing up your house and perhaps even doing a spotty job.
As an end customer, your contract with the company you have hired needs to spell everything out, including the sub-contractors they will be using. Who will actually be coming into your home. This holds true even for small simple jobs.
Your contract should spell out all specifics of any subs they will be using.
