At Jerry L. Johnson and Associates, something we pride ourselves on as a company is the network of subcontractors we’ve built over decades of successful projects. There are few things as important to us as our incredible relationships with our subcontractors. In fact, we have many subcontractors who have worked with us for over 30 years. The relationship between a general contractor and their subcontractors is crucial to the success and timeliness of any job. Good relationships will greatly benefit the project owner. We’ve compiled 4 reasons why good relationships with subcontractors are crucial.
Trust is the Foundation for a Great Product
Although we are always on the lookout for new, talented subcontracting partners with, an advantage of working with subcontractors we’ve developed a relationship with is that trust has already been established. The whole point of involving a subcontractor in a project is to add expertise to your team. When you know you can trust that addition to the team, the project can be much more enjoyable and stress-free for all involved parties.
Good Communication Streamlines the Process
Most general contracting projects involve many moving parts, opinions, and skills at work all at once. Because of the fantastic relationships we have, communication is never an issue. We understand the communication styles of all our subcontractors we partner with to the point that they are a full part of the JLJ team during the life of a project.
Drama-Free Work Means Fewer Headaches
Few things can derail a project faster than competing egos and the disagreements that follow. This is a common occurrence in the contracting business and is something that should be avoided at all costs. Thankfully, our great relationships lead to drama-free work and fewer headaches for you as the owner.
