I do not subcontract,   you need a contractor when you are building a home.  You do not need one to fix your fence.  If I send you a person, you deal with them directly.  If you like them and hire them, you deal directly with them.  Some give me a small referral fee, some do the odd favour for me and from some I get nothing.  The most important thing to me is a happy customer.   For me, A happy customer is a return customer and  tells  their friends about me.  And this is what I like.
