Subcontractors – Paying (cont., pg. 5)

 

Types of Subcontractors and How They Are Paid


Brick

Brick masons charge per thousand brick laid.  A surcharge is made for two-story jobs.

There are additional charges for extras such as arches and decorative work.  You are expected to provide all material.

 


If the entire job can be completed within one week, make one payment when job is finished.

For longer jobs, multiple payments are okay, but never more frequent than five working days.

Siding

Siding labor charges are figured on a basic price per square foot of wall to be covered.

If it’s a type of siding being installed by your framer, you should provide the material.

For other types of siding, the sub should provide all material and labor.

Make one payment when job is complete.

Cabinets

You’ll have one price for the total job, materials and installation labor.

The cabinet makers will probably ask for a deposit of 40% or more to begin production.

That’s okay as long as it’s a well-established company that you know won’t be closing their doors anytime soon. 

Be wary, however, of guys who build cabinets in a backyard shop, unless you’ve got rock-solid references.

Final payment is made after installation.
