There is nothing more frustrating than expecting your home remodeling job to be done on a certain date only to have it delayed for weeks and weeks. In the best of cases, you are forced to put off the enjoyment of you newly designed space. In the worst cases, your kitchen or bathrooms may be unusable for longer than you anticipated. Simply put, delays are sometimes unavoidable when it comes to home remodeling. However, if you work with a reputable Sacramento remodeling contractor, you may be able to avoid, or at least lessen, these delays.
The most common reason for delay on a home remodeling project is that the client changes their mind mid-job and wants to modify the original plan. This can significantly lengthen your job time, which is why you should be sure you know what you want before you have your Sacramento remodeling contractor move forward. You should also communicate regularly with your contractor, making sure you are always on the same page. To that end, it is often a bad idea to push your contractor to promise you a date that is unrealistic. That just sets you both up for disappointment. And if you are having something done to the exterior of your home, be sure to add a few days of a buffer to the timeline in case Mother Nature decides to come pay you a visit.

No one can control the weather, but if you’re planning for an outside project, it’s going to be important to build in some buffer for weather-related delays. If you’re painting your house or adding new landscaping, there are going to be times they are not be able to work. So that’ll help manage expectations by building the buffer so your project comes in on time.
The best bet for avoiding delays is to document and communicate regular with your contractor. And be sure you’re realistic at the beginning with the time line.
