I am glad only 20% of my business is direct to private parties. Those are the most troublesome and most times arenít worth the headache.
It actually wasn't too bad until this year, this particular contractor.
I started in '11. I kept being told that if i could make it just starting out in the down turn, I'd make it just fine during the good times... that seems to not be the case lol. I've also been told repeatedly that this particular gc is a different kind of pain in the ass to work for
i won't bid with their cm side for a long long time. It's not worth the headache.
The private party thing has really been difficult too. They seem to think they don't need to pay. Or that they deserve some sort of discount. Not sure how that computes. You hire me, sign a contract, then want to fuck me over
i always have to remind them about the contract they signed
