Subcontractors – Finding

 

How To Find Subcontractors


Don’t be worried about the process of finding good subcontractors.  It’s relatively simple to do.

There are several ways to find subcontractors.  The best place to find them is other job sites.

A sub already working for a general contractor is likely to have an established track record, and it’s also likely that he’s working there because he offers quality work at an affordable price.

 

When I find subs in this manner, I just approach a work crew (framing, for example) ask who the supervisor is, introduce myself, and tell him that I’m looking for a framing crew.


I ask about their availability, and I also say, “Do you mind if I ask what they’re paying you?”


I haven’t had one yet refuse to answer that question.


It’s that simple.

 

Another source is building supply stores.  Here you should be able to find a bulletin board where subs post their business cards.

I once found a good painter when I talked to him in supply store parking lot.

If your area has a local builder’s association, they can provide you with names and numbers of member contractors, usually listed by trade.

Some subcontractors advertise in the “trades” category of newspaper classified ads.
