How to Prevent Commercial Roofing Project Delays

When it comes to commercial roofing, the timeline should be followed to a T. In fact, a slight delay could mean trouble for other parts of the project. However, there are unavoidable causes of delays such as delayed deliveries, poor weather, or even red tape which could cause headaches for your business. In this post, your trusted commercial roof repair company, Dry Tech Construction shares how to prevent delays in commercial roofing projects.

Keep Permits Up-to-Date

Compared to residential roofing projects, commercial roofing projects have stricter guidelines when it comes to project approvals. Everything that goes on within the building will require a thorough inspection and approval of construction permits which can delay the completion of your project. Thankfully, this can be managed by following these guidelines:

  1. Talk to Experienced Professionals

  2. Keep Your Documentation Ready and In Order

  3. Have a Leeway for Inspections and Permit Reviews

As much as you want to have your inspections and permits done by a certain date, it can’t be helped if it’s out of your control. As such, you want to plan ahead and get this done with as soon as possible. This is why it’s important to consult professionals who have an idea of how the process works. If you’ve followed these guidelines, there’s a good chance that you won’t run into many hurdles when it comes to securing permits and running into delays.

Have a Thorough Inspection Right Away

One of the things you have to do right away aside from your permits is having roofing contractors inspect your commercial building. During this time, they can spot any issues or gaps in your project that can cause setbacks later on if they aren’t spotted earlier. In turn, this makes you more prepared for your commercial roofing project and you’ll have a better idea of how long and how much the project takes to complete.

Brace for Inclement Weather

Any commercial roofing project bears the risk of running into inclement weather and the elements sooner or later. While it’s impossible to control the weather, you can do steps to prepare for it such as:

  1. Analyzing Seasonal Weather Patterns

  2. Adding Extra Time to Allow for Rainy Days

  3. Creating a Back-Up Plan for Bad Weather Conditions

Much like your permits, it’s hard to prepare or predict when bad weather is coming. The best thing to do is to prepare for it by studying the weather for the upcoming days, creating allowances in case of bad weather and creating a contingency plan in case the weather affects certain parts of your project.
