If you are going to give the GC serious consideration,
you will need to do some digging. What kind of
reputation does he have? Any references from
previous roofing jobs? Who will actually do the
work and what is their background? You are
entitled to ask these questions. Notice how he
answers. Does he talk fast, and then change the
subject after two sentences? If so it may be a red
flag. Does he seem honest,down to earth and
attentive when he talks? Aside from hearing him
talk, and deciding what make of him, pause. What
kind of feeling is this guy giving you? Do you
feel (not think)that you'll be in good hands? Or
do you get a sense that there is something you are
unable to know about him--another potential red flag.
These are subtle things that may be useful when
weighing a decision. Trying sense a person in this
way may not be for everyone, but this approach
has been very helpful for me.
