Well, I only do sub-contract work for one GC on a regular basis. He never gripes about paying me
, but I wish the jobs were organized a little better.
I sometimes get only a vague idea as to what needs to be done, so I have no time to order material in advance.
"Get what you need at the local shop on he day," he says. Fine, except the small local stores don't stock anything but the basic items, and those at double the prices I normally pay.
So, my vote is "Good planning & organization." And please don't use my screwdrivers as concrete chisels....
