Any roofing project is a significant investment that requires precision, planning and timeliness. You need to source the right roofing contractors, materials and the perfect time to do the job. However, there are some instances where the project faces delays due to various causes. In this post, one of the area’s leading roofing and siding companies, Silver Leaf Contracting, shares the common causes of roof replacement project delays.
One of the leading causes, if not, the top cause of roof replacement delays, is inclement weather. This can serve as a major setback, especially if the roofing project is already in progress. The moisture and precipitation brought about by the weather can affect the applied materials before they even have enough time to dry. This is important because roofing materials and surfaces have to be completely dry before components are installed.
To address this issue, we recommend scheduling your roof replacement project sometime between late spring or early summer. During this period, rain rarely occurs which reduces the chance of you running into bad weather during the replacement project.
Some roofing issues can be difficult to spot on the surface, even to a trained eye. This is why some problems can only be spotted after a thorough inspection has been conducted. The reason this causes delays is that these issues need to be addressed before moving on with the actual replacement to ensure the roof is safe and structurally sound.
Sometimes, subcontractors can doze off at work or even lack the skills to properly accomplish the task at hand. As a result, this leads to significant delays to the project’s timeline due to the pace of the subcontractors. To address this, only hire certified local contractors that have been vetted by numerous people in your community to ensure that their services are legitimate and of quality.
