from pool contractor wanting a price:


"I need your subcontractor price to me. That's it. All my subs give me 30% off what they would charge the homeowner direct. The homeowner will get a contact from me for now on. Thanks"

What's the back story? Sounds like you looked at a landscape job for a pool install & you talked to homeowner.

No contact with the homeowner, never saw, spoke, e-mailed, faxed, or smoke signaled with him/her/them before in my life.

You bid a 100.00 and he adds 50.00 to it and charges you 30.00 and he makes 80.00

What is it with people expecting us to make money simply disappear--do they really think there is that much margin in these jobs??

I was thinkin 30% off was alot, but didn't know what profit margin was for hardscapes. I may give an immediate family member that deal but not a ****** installing pools.

I was kinda thinkin like grandview...he wants 30% off so he can tack 30% back on for himself.
