How General Contractors Choose Their Flooring Sub-Contractors
Professional Flooring Installers love getting calls from general contractors. This is because general contractors need a sub-contractor who they can trust to finish their flooring jobs on time and on par. There’s a lot of competition out there, so how can you ensure that you will become a General Contractor’s regular “go to” flooring subcontractor?
Don’t take it from us, listen to what industry experts have to say:
Keep your priorities straight. Make the facility owner your only priority. Ensure that the job is done their way and on their terms.
Be honest if any situations arise let the facility owner and the contractor know without delay. Ensure that you have possible solutions on-hand.
Be a team player. In a large project, there are other people at the work site. Everyone working must be considerate of others.
Safety first. General contractors don’t want to be stuck with unnecessary costs. They too have a budget. Ensure that your company has a sound safety record, along with coverage from a reliable insurer.
Be financially responsible. If you mismanage finances and go over budgetary limits it isn’t likely that general contractors will keep you around.
Contribute to the construction process. If you have any knowledge that can help speed up a project or help with an issue speak up.
Be flexible, and easy going.
At the end of the day what counts is the business relationships that you build. This advice is brought to you by Concrete Fusion.
