Conventional wisdom states that summer is the best time for home remodeling. What you may not realize is that the same applies to remodeling your commercial property. As your local provider of general construction services, let Allied Construction Services share why you should do your commercial remodeling projects in the summer.
Less Chance of Delays
While we do have relatively milder weather than most states, the summer season facilitates easy remodeling. There’s less chance of material delivery getting delayed by the rain, which could happen if the material, such as cement, can’t be exposed to rainwater. Certain projects also require clear weather to be completed, especially if the said projects involve roof replacement.
Commercial roofing systems need significantly more time to install. Traditional roofs like built-up roofing (BUR) require several layers to complete. Single-ply roofing, like EPDM, needs time for the adhesive to properly cure and achieve full strength, creating a complete waterproofing system for your property. The faster your project is completed, the sooner you can enjoy its benefits.
Less Business Disruption
A remodeling project can be disruptive, so it’s important to schedule the project when it will cause less disruption. This is especially true with projects that involve closing the indoor work areas partially or fully, such as carpet replacement, HVAC maintenance, or plate window repairs. Scheduling such projects in the summer is less disruptive, which minimizes its impact on your daily revenue.
Less Water Intrusion
The most compelling reason commercial remodeling in the summer is such a good idea is because it lets contractors complete their work without any chance of water intrusion. Spring can sometimes delay roof installation because rain affects the curing time of adhesives, and may cause insulation to form clumps. Exterior paints or stains can also take longer to dry. All of these problems are less likely to happen if the remodeling projects are scheduled in the summer.
