Default Contacted by subs ???

Has anybody ever been contacted by any of the subtrades, asking if you want to do upgrades with them directly? I've just got such a call, and it seems kind of fishy to me...

The builder would probably freak out if the sub contacted an HO directly.

The builders need to get their percentage on top of anything sold.

I know, I'm thinking it's a scam... but again, they have the info we supplied to the builder... unless someone from the decor center leaked that info... and then I should be really pissed because I have not authorized that...

We got contacted the other day by someone about the Wiring in our house. we set up an appointment just to meet with them to see what they say... If they try to upgrade or sell me anything I'm not going for it and i'll let you know.

yup, same guys here too... i'll see them tomorrow simply because they're in my way home... i'll give 5 minutes to see what they want.
They will not offer you the stuff you already have with the builder (cable and phone)... apparently they do rough-ins for alarms, networking... who knows what else... I'll ask them about fiber optics... we'll see...

Hahahaha, same here. I wish the electrician would have contacted me to offer pricing on roughing in the potlight wiring. I could've saved a tonne of money.

The contractors that wire the phone/cable are supposed to call you to setup an appointment to discuss upgrades. This is the arrangement at least that our builder had with the contractor. ie. if you want additional outlets or alarm, etc.

Mark & Lynda, I find that hard to believe, since I just had the appointment at the decor center, and I was asked then about wiring. I was also given the prices. If I'd new, I would not have paid at the decor center for extra cable and phone plugs.

I guess it is different for different builders. We were not contacted by ANY of the trades. Everything was done through the decor centre. Contact your builder directly and they should be able to fill you in.
