When I put yard signs up on jobs I'm doing and leave them up for 30 days I usually get calls from crews like owning for work. But I usually would rather go off a recommendation from a friends be or people I know through construction. Now this is not best practice but if you see a sub at your supplier like abc ask if he is like king for work.

You are right, my problem with using subs is if they are any good they get busier and busier to the point they get more expensive and usually go into business only working for themselves after a couple years then you need to start all over again finding a new subcontractor.

It's a rare thing to find good roofing crews. We rely on past working relationships and we pay the good ones a higher rate. For new labours, sometimes we go through 10 people to find 1 good one. For good crews, we sign contracts with them. But we still need to go onsite checking on their work on a daily basis. You cannot trust 100%.
