Planning a project takes time and money, which is why many a roofing company worry about delays. Any mistakes can delay the project. This can also lead to larger expenses, which can ruin your budget. There are four delays that usually happen, but you can avoid them easily. Here’s how to do it.
1. Poor Weather
Picking the right day for your roofing project is important. Without planning for the weather, you could be delaying your project just to let a storm run its course. Remember that you can’t tear off the roof if the skies aren’t clear. Sunny days can damage your AC units, while rainy days will damage your interior. To avoid this, keep an eye on the weather forecasts. They can give you a good idea of what to expect during the week of your project. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, don’t force the project to continue.
2. Running Out of Budget
Roofing companies need money to work on your project, to pay for the workers and to buy materials. Without enough budget, your contractor will put the project on hold. The best way to plan for this is by having an estimate done. The estimate gives a possible approximation of your total expenses, accounting for the damage and/or service needed. It also helps to have an emergency budget, in case you need to spend more than expected.
3. Lack of Permit or Insurance
This problem can have serious consequences, including forced tear-offs and legal action. The only way to avoid this is by making sure your contractor has both documents. Do this as soon as you agree to work with a prospect, or else you risk halting your project completely.
4. Hiring the Wrong Contractor
RoofIng companies are not all the same. Some will be unavailable or busy, while others may not have enough experience. Even if they offer more affordable rates, the risk of delaying or shutting down a project is too high. Always look for a proper professional that is willing to put in enough time and effort to help you out.
