4 Tips to Avoid Common Construction Delays During a Home Renovation Project

If you’re thinking of embarking on a home renovation project, the last thing you want is any construction delays. Unfortunately, with supply constraints still very real, construction delays cannot always be avoided, but a lot can be done to help reduce or prevent them altogether.

A Strong Network of Vendors and Subcontractors is Key

One of the most important reasons to hire a local general contractor is that you instantly gain access to a robust network of vendors and subcontractors. At Prince & Sons, we’ve completed home renovation projects of all sizes for over a decade. This experience has allowed us to compile a team of qualified and highly skilled professionals for all facets of your project. These team members are well-trained in their respective trades and understand our high expectations and how we like to get things done.

Work to Minimize Change Orders

Change orders are sometimes inevitable in a construction project, but if they can be avoided, they can help to reduce delays. By its very nature, a change order delays construction as you wait for new supplies, architectural drawing changes, and rearrange the overall construction schedule. Change orders not only cause delays but also cost you money!

Proper Construction Planning is Vital to Prevent Delays

At Prince & Sons, we work extremely hard to utilize our preconstruction process to set a schedule before the project begins, so everyone knows how long the entire project will take. This schedule is a Google Calendar setup specifically for your job, where you can see when each phase of your project is set to be completed. This online calendar will be shared with you at the beginning of the project, so there is no question as to what items still need to be completed on any given day or week. There can be delays beyond our control, but this schedule will always reflect our best attempt to keep your entire project on schedule.

Choose a Reputable General Contractor to Ensure Your Home Renovation Project Goes As Planned

The primary role of a general contractor is to manage the overall project and ensure each phase stays on budget and schedule.
