It’s only natural to expect your roofing contractor to finish your project on time. However, the reality is that certain factors can sometimes cause unavoidable delays. That is why you also have to be flexible and understanding of the reasons behind such issues.
Timberland Exteriors, a reputable exterior remodeling contractor, enumerates some of the common reasons for delays in roof replacement projects.
This is certainly beyond anyone’s control and sometimes it can happen when the roof installation is already underway. It can really be a hassle because even the slightest rain can force your contractor to stop working on your roof. The roof deck, for example, needs to be completely dry before other roofing layers can be installed. Otherwise, the moisture from the rain could compromise the performance and longevity of your new roof. That said, it is recommended to check weather forecasts before scheduling your project.
Residential roofing services may involve the removal of the old roof. This is a major step in the process as it lets your contractor perform a thorough inspection before the new roof is installed. At this stage, they may find issues in your roofing system that need to be addressed before they can move forward with the installation. If you look at the bright side, though, this can actually be a good thing because it allows you to repair any damage before installing the new roof.
These are basic changes that are done to a project while it is underway. Various reasons could cause these change orders, such as issues with the supplier or manufacturer, compatibility issues, or other necessary adjustments. Take note that apart from the delays, these change orders can also increase your expenses. To minimize such changes, it is important to plan thoroughly.
