A roof replacement can be a complex project so sometimes, even if you hire an experienced contractor, small problems can be inevitable. Keeping your replacement project on schedule is a key part of its success so, in today’s post, we share the three most common causes of roof replacement delays and provide a few tips on how to prevent them.
1. Inclement Weather
This is probably the most common cause of delays for any outdoor home improvement project. Even a mild drizzle can completely halt work that’s already underway for safety and other reasons. To avoid delays due to bad weather, try to schedule a replacement job in the summer where rain is less likely to occur.
2. Change Orders
A change order is changes done to a construction job midway through the project. There are many reasons that could result in change orders including the availability of materials, compatibility issues, or even slight adjustments. Change orders can be disruptive, time-consuming, and costly. To prevent delays caused by a change order, be sure to plan everything thoroughly with your roofing contractor even before the job begins.
3. Lack of Permits
Roofing projects will almost always require a permit before any work can begin and securing one from your local licensing office can often take weeks. Be sure to work with a local roofer who understands the local codes and processes to avoid delays caused by a lack of permits.
