1. Mutual Benefits

Creating a solid relationship with your subcontractors will provide many benefits to both parties. Regardless of the line of work, mutual trust is at the core. The subcontractor needs to trust that the General Contractor is going to provide the proper preliminary work, scheduling and direction to create a cohesive project. The General Contractor needs to trust that his subcontractor will provide quality workmanship and order product in a timely fashion to meet the scheduled deadlines. When the two entities work well together, the relationship can be maintained for years. This creates an invaluable exchange where the GC doesn’t need to find new subcontractors for each project and the subcontractors know there will always be work on the horizon.
