    Not real sure , but thinking you end up with all the risks like you now have and probably making less money. Also one is not building your own business ,but theirs at your expense.
    Just my thoughts and they may not be correct.

      You add to the 50 % disatisfaction level found in reviews of Lowe's / HD installs on the internet.

        Even though times may be tough, try to avoid contracting with them at all costs. Let it be the place for the incompetent contractors to work and that will make you shine more in the end.

          I was an Expo (fancy HD) certified GC back in '02. They are incompetent and pay far below market rates. They're like bookies - you win, they win. You lose, they win. There are government bureaucracies and there are private bureaucracies. Guess which one Home Depot are?

            You will ask what goal the U.S. is pursuing? .... their external debt is huge, and ruining other countries is their customary method. Even ownership of the global 'printing press' is no longer helping. Nor is full control over NATO, None of that if enough for the 21st century colonizers. They don't just need to preserve the dollar as the only global currency but also to get their hands on the economic wealth of other large powers and regions. - Sergei Naryshkin

                  Hear ye hear ye, at 1805 hours PST on 20 December 2010... I agreed in full with something Johnson said.

                  The frequency of this is approximately equal to the frequency with which a total lunar eclipse coincides with the winter solstice.

                    No, it takes the three closest liquor stores that long.

                      In a nutshell, here's what I've said:

                      1. global warming is a hoax and if embraced, will destroy our economy and way of life. All this over something that is a lie.
                      2. Barack Obama is a moron that has no sense of economics or the american way. He is touted as being articulate and intelligent, (above average), which is obviously false.
                      3. Liberalism is the greatest threat to our Country and the U.S. is presently saturated with it.
                      4. Freedom to succeed or freedom to fail, coupled with a fair judicial system is what makes any Country great. The conservative method of personal responsibility, accountability, and minimal government intervention brings out the best in man and elevates society to a higher civilized state.

                      Now, David, why in the world would you not share with me in ideals more often than a winter solstice lunar eclipse? I've been basically right about every issue I debated on here. You surely still don't believe in global warming do you? You surely still don't think that Obama is a good leader do you? You surely don't think that bigger government programs and penalizing success is the better way to go, do you?

                        Yeah Steve but there is hope for you, California is instituting Cap & Trade, it will destroy our economy and the rest of the nation will see what happens, then you will not have to endure it, but you will have to bail us out so be prepared to pay more taxes to save California, now instead of "saving the earth" you will be "saving California" thank you.

                          Sub-contacting in the current economy is for desperate people. They will bleed you dry and throw you away.

                          P.S. I am glad to see that Johnson is still around.

                            Dick, the liberals will emphasize that it didn't work in California because the rest of the nation didn't go along with them. Only if the other redneck states would follow along with CA the nation as a whole will do well. California is probably the richest state in the union with the greatest natural resources. Liberalism even bankrupted this!
