Yes, we use subcontractors for a variety of trades including but not limited to electrical work, plumbing, insulation, sheetrock, floor-finishing, roofing and painting. These are areas in which we can save our clients money through the efficiency gained by employing specialists. Our pool of sub-contractors is the result of a vigorously vetting and qualifying process implemented since 1989. Annually, we require proof of proper license and insurance from each and every one of them. All subcontractors are coordinated and communicated with by Blackdog. Clients are not expected to pay subcontractors directly or be involved with the coordination of their schedules. That is all managed by Blackdog.
