You Have Not Finalized All of Your Choices When Planning

If you have not completely planned out your roofing project in entail prior to having the work began, it can very easily lead to some major and unexpected delays, as well as costs, before your roof is done.  What this means, is that you will require more time in order to have your roofing project completed, as well as spend much more money than you had originally budgeted for.

You Haven’t Secured Your Permits
