In the roofing industry, it is easy to see there are 2 sides to success. Contractors. Sub-Contractors. In a world where contractors are always looking for crews to expand their business or fill gaps in scheduling or crews looking to contractors to help keep them busy, both are trying to do the same thing, work smart, make money, and survive the conditions surrounding the toughest industry on the planet! Roofing!
The relationship between contractors and sub-contractors is unique and critical when contractors are growing and need support to drive quality work and customer satisfaction. On the other hand, you will find the pressure to succeed falls on the sub-contractor as his team is required to jump into a project, on a roof with little direction or job expectations by the contractor. It always seems to be where finger pointing starts and the relationship suffers. Poor start-up expectations and onboarding may be the root cause of jobs gone bad.
