  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.


What Could Delay Your Roof Replacement?

Residential roofing replacement is a job best left to experienced professionals. A botched installation will compromise the performance and longevity of your roof, which is why you should not attempt to DIY this task.

This is an important investment so you want the project to go as smoothly as possible. However, even with a professional by your side, there is still a chance that certain factors could delay the project.

Here are a few tips to avoid delays with your roof replacement project.

Check the Weather Forecast

Bad weather is the most common cause of delayed home improvement projects, particularly roofing, as the roof is exposed to the elements all the time. The components of a roofing system include those that require adhesion, such as the roof deck. When they are exposed to moisture, they may not dry properly and that can affect the longevity of your roofing system.

To avoid rain delays on your roof replacement, schedule your project when the weather is expected to be mild. Fall is a great season for roof replacement because the weather is typically pleasant.

Change Orders

If you change your mind about materials or other factors while the project is already underway, that will require a change order, which can delay your project. Other things such as a disagreement with the manufacturer or the contractor can also lead to change orders.

Plan your project carefully. Don’t make a decision about a roofing product unless you are completely certain it’s the right choice. Work with a contractor you’re comfortable with and that can give you reliable guidance about materials.

Underlying Roof Damage.

A good contractor will do a thorough inspection before beginning the roof replacement. However, if a contractor is in a hurry they could miss something. That issue might present itself when the project is underway. This can lead to delays and escalating costs as your contractor fixes the problem.
