    I was wondering what some of your experiences have been with sub contracting work?

    How do you go about telling the customer?

    Do you tell the customer?

    What type of work do you sub out?

    Work that you can't do yourself ?(roofing repairs for example)

    How much do you add on as your 'fee'?

    Why would the customer not just cut you out as the middle man?

    Any other tips?

    I know a lot of lads my way who rent out work, if you have a canvasser out constantly picking the work up for you to rent out, your on to a winner, because there's always people looking for more windows
