When it comes to roofing repair, time is of the essence. This is just as true for residential buildings as it is for commercial ones. Neglecting or delaying repairs on a problematic roofing system can be dangerous as it could potentially jeopardize the rest of the structure and damage your property as well as the properties of your tenants.
In installation projects, delays in roofing jobs can throw an entire schedule out of whack. There are many reasons why a commercial roofing project can be delayed. While most of them are out of anybody’s control (factors such as weather, delivery problems, etc.), quite a few of them are actually avoidable. Here are a few tips from our experts at Pawcatuck Roofing Co. on how to prevent the most common delays in commercial roof jobs:
Don’t Forget Your Due Diligence
It’s frustrating to start your commercial roof replacement and then, while in the middle of the work, find out that you may not have all the pertinent permits needed to do it in the first place. In some cases, the local government may even order you to undo any progress you have made, padding your costs even further. Hiring a good and reputable contractor can help you get these permits out of the way to ensure that your new commercial roof installation goes off without a hitch.
Sometimes, your roofing contractor may uncover problems in the structure of your old roof before installation. It’s best to take this into consideration during the planning stage so you can minimize the delays these problems may cause, as well as your total costs.
Focus on the Forecast
Take a look at the week-long weather forecast in your area before you ask your roofing contractor to come out. It’s always possible that the weather forecast may be a little inaccurate, but it’s still best to schedule around the sunny days to avoid any potential delays.
