The Skinny on Subs

Log Home Living - - BUILD -

Your builder is re­spon­si­ble for meet­ing the terms of your con­tract. In short, he works for you. But his sub­con­trac­tors, or “subs,” an­swer to him, not you. So how can you con­trol the qual­ity? The best time to check out the subs is when you’re re­view­ing a builder’s ref­er­ences. When you talk to his for­mer clients about his per­for­mance, also ask about the subs he used. If some­one men­tions a sub that was ei­ther ex­cep­tional or aw­ful, in­quire about whether that per­son will be used on your pro­ject. Re­mem­ber that pro­ject sched­ules and avail­abil­ity fluc­tu­ate and your builder may not know all the subs he will en­gage for your pro­ject at the on­set, but it’s good to set the ex­pec­ta­tion that you will be mon­i­tor­ing ev­ery step along the way.
