Lessons Learned

My Subcontractor – My Friend?? 


Okay, so you hire a “friend” as a subcontractor, didn’t bother to check his references…what could go wrong?

Oh my.
This totally happened to us.

Lessons learned: 
  • Just because your kids go to school together and you live in the same town, doesn’t make you friends. Got it, “acquaintance”. 
  • Just because your acquaintance runs a business, doesn’t mean they run a good business. Got it, should have checked references. 
Advice: 
  • Always check references before you hire someone, always. Big job, little job, shouldn’t matter. You want it done right, correct? You want a company that stands behind its work, in case of a problem, correct?
