What Are the Common Causes of Remodeling Delays?

Being aware of what causes remodeling delays can help you prepare for them, or even prevent them. In this blog post, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Burlington County takes a look at some of the most common causes of remodeling delays.

Unforeseen Structural Issues

Sometimes, hidden structural issues like water damage, mold or electrical wiring issues are only revealed during remodeling when the remodelers take the old structure apart. Addressing these unexpected problems can take time, which can impact your project timeline. Skilled remodelers may be able to identify signs that point to such issues and account for them when projecting a timeline.

Permits and Inspection

Permits and inspections can sometimes cause delays. For example, your remodeling project may be scheduled during the busy season, which may mean longer processing times for permits and other paperwork. The same can be said for home inspections if there are few inspectors available.

Supply Chain

Material shortage and shipping delays can result in a delayed project. One of the advantages of working with reputable remodelers like us is we stay updated on available materials. In addition to helping minimize delays, it can also help avoid having to halt a project because the materials ran out.

Changes to the Original Plan

Once the client signs off on the remodeling plan, the remodeler gets the ball rolling by ordering the materials and applying for permits. Changing the plan during this time would mean going back a few steps — materials will need to be reordered, new paperwork will need to be filed, plans will need to be redrawn. This is why it’s important to take your time during planning and make sure you and your remodeler are on the same page during the planning stages.

The Weather

Adverse weather conditions can hinder construction progress. It goes without saying that this is one cause that can’t be prevented. However, a good remodeler would account for potential delays and have some headroom in your project timeline.
