How do GC get away with doing restricted trades in ontario


Perhaps Nitro you should sit back and consider the masses here, you are trying to enforce your opinion on those of us that may have been burned already, or are fearful of getting burned by a, I know how to do that, Jack of all, master of none contractor.

And as for the sueing part, I am sure if a family was injured or hurt due to the work of a contractor, licensed, certified or other the law suits would be large and many.

I also know those who I would trust to do work for me, but I also have in the contracting business have been burned by uncertified sub contractors.

Say you have a GC doing some work and he brings in another guy/gal to do a portion of the work you hired him to do, and he tells you don't worry he knows what he/she is doing, how would you handle that? Would you let them work, or would you object?

I believe you are trying to make fit a general statement to very complex and most often bewildering business.

How do GC get away with doing restricted trades in ontario


i'm merely expressing my opinion as is everyone else on this thread. sorry if it appears like i'm forcing you to change yours. i do not think that comparing a surgeons credentials to a GC's credentials is valid in any way shape or form. if you think it is, fine.

just because i'm in the minority does not mean i have no voice and am not allowed to express my educated opinion.

listening to the masses often times is what gets you into trouble in the first place.

i do very much agree that it is a complex, confusing system that is difficult to navigate and everyone has their individual experiences that lead to their opinions. i'm a believer in hard work...lots of blood, sweat and tears. let the work speak for itself and your reputation will follow.

You are in no way influencing me and I to, am expressing my opinion.

I did ask a couple of questions of you which I just don't see answers for, but thats ok, we are, who we are and thats what makes us human.

I take it from this response that you are or are attempting to be a GC, with no licenses, certificates just your hard work and name.

All fine and I wish you luck, but some day you will find that with the proper certificates and licenses more doors will open up for you, more opportunities to put all that blood, sweat and tears into.

What does a vet scenario have anything to do with a GC? I have never met a Vet that had a lawsuit against them but I have known a lot of good GC's that have had a mediator by the state. My experience with vets is not all that great just like doctors. I know people that have had a bad surgery and they can not do anything about it. I also know a GC that had a drywall crack at the angle in a vaulted ceiling (after 3 years) and the homeowner would not settle for it being patched so he re-did the ceiling.
