Keeping your roofing project on schedule may not always be easy, but it’s definitely something for which you should strive. The timely completion of your project will mean less stress for you, and will also help you avoid incurring additional expenses.
Ultimately, thorough planning is key to preventing delays. Below are some specific tips that could help you avert costly, inconvenient delays in your roof replacement project.
Minimize change orders. Change orders refer to changes made to the roofing job or any other home improvement project while it’s already in progress. Several factors can result in change orders. These include issues with the supplier or manufacturer, unforeseen conditions in certain parts of your roofing system or the client themselves making adjustments to the project. In some cases, change orders are inevitable, but oftentimes, such changes can be minimized with proper planning.
Process permits in advance. Roof replacement usually requires permits before it can be started. Make sure to secure one from your local licensing office, and do this as early as possible because the processing could take a while. If you don’t plan ahead for these permits, you could end up waiting for months before getting a green light from the government.
Prepare for bad weather. Check the local weather forecast during the time period your roof replacement project is scheduled. If it will be rainy or stormy on the day the installation of your new roof is set to start, it would be best to postpone it and wait for the weather to clear. Even the smallest amount of rain can delay your project since the roof deck needs to be completely dry before the other roofing layers can be installed. Any lingering moisture could compromise the quality and performance of your roofing system.
