In the long run though I think it's better to not get involved. Right now I am waiting for an invoice from one guy so I can send out a bill that I think will be somewhere around 6K. If he's higher than I am guessing then I am SOL, if he's lower then I guess I pocket a bit more money. On another job I am going to be having some legal issues with a sub because he took certain liberties that he thought he could get away with.
what about just giving the guy the job obviously you need some sort f trust and relationship but you give him the job and he kicks you back money no need to show up or do the work on site. (this is assuming i cant do the job)
