Even a well-planned remodeling project can still encounter delays. While professionals do their best to stick to the schedule and finish your remodel on time, uncontrollable circumstances can prolong your project. However, you can minimize delays by being prepared for them.
Read on to learn about common factors that can delay your remodeling or residential roofing project.
Bad weather conditions are common causes of delays, particularly for exterior projects. Heavy rain or snow can halt your project temporarily. Make sure that you have allowances for weather extremes in your contact to avoid paying liquidated damages due to storm.
Most states require permits for major home improvement projects. A reputable contractor will make sure you have all the necessary permits before the work starts. The process can take from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on how many projects are being reviewed. When securing permits, your contractor should have all the plans and documents required by your local municipality.
When hiring a roofer or remodeling contractor, one of the first things you should ask is whether they are working with subcontractors. Unreliable subcontractors may not have the right tools, skills and experience necessary to complete the job properly. It definitely pays to invest in companies with full-time employees like Residential Concerns.

Sometimes, problems can arise in the middle of a remodeling project. Before the work continues, your contractor must fix these issues. Damage lurking behind your ceiling, walls or roof are common causes of these types of delays. For instance, termite damage, rot and mold are more common in older homes.
