What is your experience with rain during construction?
My contractor is going to start framing the roof next week...he figures that it will take 2 weeks to complete. I live in N. CA and we're experiencing rain this week, about 0.34" in the last 24 hours. More rain is expected tomorrow, and then again Friday and Saturday when the next storm comes through. The weather man predicts that there will be rain sometime next week as well.
Should I be worried about the plywood on my house that's currently exposed (subfloor, etc.)? My contractor said the rain won't hurt it, and that he'd replace any damaged ones, but is that a reasonable solution? How do you replace subfloor when the walls sit on top of it? I've been researching this issue on the web, and some people don't seem to think rain is a problem, while others do. What have you experienced so far? Should I be worried about this at all? I'm concerned about the wood rotting, the floor squeaking down the road and even mold.
Thanks! I'd appreciate any feedback to help a very stressed out first-time remodeling novice.
