Oh yeah, and after the job, I was conversing with my contact when he STD there are 20 more units coming up.’. I had not told him that info so I inquired. The contact STD,’ yeah, I told the GC to give me a call when he needs more cabinets.’.

So the GC is my customer, I hire the contact and thus he works for me. And he openly tells me he is trying take my customer from me. I am not worried about that the, this GC does have morals. This is actually the second job in the past 2 months we have done for him. My first job with this GC was custom and built in our shop. It was a smaller job and he liked our work at that time.

Plus, the contact does not have a shop and has much less capability then we do and would be stuck in a hard spot if any mistakes happened with sizes.

I guess I am just venting some here. Any salty experienced tradesman with any good advise?
