I just finished a job and I did all the extras for nothing but it was a good price so I didnt mind.

Thats just crazy if that's what they expect you to do .....

i think it depends on the job, bloke ive been working for is bein caned on one site , theres holes every were , bay windows missing ,front doors missing, gotta come back on em for nothing, trouble is if thats what the main contractors after they usually get it , it just gets knocked off the subbies price,

Depends on the price your getting and what pecentage of that your going to get knocked for, if there are loads of other trades on site which can effect you beware pesonaly i think it is a pee take but most jobs are like that now.Cant remember exactly now but i did post on this before, the company i worked for earlier in the year lost a lot of money on a no risk contract but didnt seem to bothered about it so it was obviously covered by the price.

you gotta supply decent a job at the end of the day, any snagging if you as a contractor are liable will be picked up by you, its expected if its damage caused by another trade then its an extra if you have have to re-visit outside of the programme/schedule then you must decide why and if the reason is outside of your control or terms of contract then always try to get paid for the work notice the word TRY
