Myth: It’s not your problem nor will it cost you more money if your general contractor uses new subcontractors to obtain a lower cost; they will have to deal with it even if it cost them money.

TRUTH: If a subcontractor submits an incomplete or inaccurate bid it is likely that the general contractor will search for a plan mistake or a way to pick that missed cost up in a change order. If a subcontractor fails to man the project as scheduled and/or perform their scope as required the net result is a schedule delay and most likely a cost increase for the replacement subcontractor. The net result of under qualified or new subcontractors used by the general contractor equals potential schedule delays and change orders to the owner.
