Was recommended for a job yesterday

#4
[I'm going to use the proverbial you as CC Solutions as a SLU/mitigation company/concrete repair]

The contractor who shops your price isn't one you want to work with anyway.

But my issue is always that the GC will shop your spec. Then when the other company does the work they wont follow your spec the way you would do it. Then I follow with the floor and get a call back because of the subfloor work. That is why with my favorite moisture subs I will ask them not to be too specific with their spec so to not help the unscrupulous GC. Giving the GC too much info / data up front allows him to shop it more effectively. If I can get the sub to front load his proposal with the red flags and problems needing to be addressed all the better to try to stop the bid shop. Even better is for the prep company to do a performance based spec in arcane ASTM language that allows a shopped spec/proposal to be examined if the GC comes back to me to help evaluate the bids.
