Project Wait Time

April 28, 2021 Patio Contractor, Uncategorized

Since most of us have spent more time at home in the last 12 months than ever before, we have a new appreciation for making a house a home. And because everyone plans to stay home more in the future, but reintroduce guests, most want some sort of outdoor space to entertain them. If you have been dreaming of improving your home, now is the time to do it, but it comes with a longer-than-expected wait time. It makes sense though … while remodeling activity continues to grow, so does project wait time.

Here’s what to expect…

When a homeowner calls us right now – we are anywhere between 3-4 weeks before getting to do an initial appointment with them.    Once we have done that initial meeting, it takes about 2 weeks to get a design back.  Once the design is approved and the contract is signed, we are looking at an additional 12-14 weeks to start construction.

Remodeling wait times aren’t just in Houston either, this stands for the entire country.

With more homeowners reaching out to construction firms, architects and interior designers to upgrade their homes, the wait time to start a new project is also on the rise.

If you look at the chart above, you’ll see that demand for construction services is strong, as the average wait time to begin a midsize project rose to 9.3 weeks. A year ago, the national average wait time was 5.4 weeks, meaning the average wait time is almost one month (3.9 weeks) longer than the same period last year.

Another thing to consider…

Cost of projects have gone up due to rising lumber and material costs.  Labor costs are also on the rise.  This is always subject to change, but it’s worth mentioning.

Our Customers Love Us

We are extremely pleased with the work completed by Texas Custom Patios. Quality of the project was kept at the highest standard and not compromised over schedule. Our project manager, Ryan, did an amazing job and was calm, cool, and in control during all stages of the project. He informed us about each stage of the project and was available during all stages of the project. Last and most important that is novelty in this era is warranty support after project completion. This company rocks and delivers on its commitment. I had to call Texas Custom Patios for a minor warranty support. My request was handled immediately and problem was fixed in no time. I would give Texas Custom Patios and my project manager Ryan a five star rating. Great job and Thank you.
