Just as the title says I am looking to start my own company. The market I hope to tap is the general contractors that are running with small crews/solo operations that need that occasional hand to get the job done. I am hoping to avoid the heavy work load that comes with constant bidding as I do not want to get bogged down in the pricing wars currently taking place. I know there are others guys out there doing the same thing so I am looking to find out the pitfalls of working in this manner on a day to day basis. If you’re a contractor that uses subs in this manner I would like to know how it has worked for you and what are some of the most common problems you deal with i.e. scheduling, customers, people not showing up.
So you have some idea where I am coming from I have been in construction for almost 20yrs. I started out pushing a broom; I have worked on framing and remodeling crews and before the crash I had been managing large scale remodeling projects in the northeast. Any feedback would be welcome.
