This Checklist gives you, the construction subcontractor, many of my secrets for handling a subcontract / project. My focus is on getting paid a.s.a.p., containing costs, and resolving conflicts through prompt and effective business solutions, not by going to court or paying lawyers $500+ per hour. With this said, please always consult an attorney when confronted with any contract containing legal jargon you don't understand.
Nevertheless, if paying an expensive lawyer adds so much to your project's cost you might as well not perform the work in the first place, this Checklist might save you from some subcontracting pitfalls, but not all of them. I will not be covering every possible subcontract/project issue or topic, as this Checklist is intended to be a continuing work in progress.
One of my desires is to create a go-to place for you, the subcontractor, when you need help navigating subcontract/project requirements and paying an attorney is a luxury not included in your budget.
