Residents expect repairs & maintenance to be kept up-to-date. Your onsite maintenance staff should be well-suited and experienced to handle the daily routine items. However, things are bound to happen, such as high turnover, damage to a unit, staff changes, or changes in Property Management. We can help
If you get into a situation where work orders in a community are behind and are causing you headaches, tenant complaints, and turnover, just create a punch list of pending items and send it to us. We will give you our best advice on how we can resolve the items quickly and efficiently.
As previous owners and managers, we know how to perform routine maintenance. We respect the work of your onsite maintenance staff and know they can only do so much. They are subject to distractions and other demands that come with day-to-day maintenance. Our crews do not have such distractions as they work through the list and depart upon completion. We also pride ourselves and our crews in their training of professional and courteous conduct in a community.
We understand that keeping up with repair and maintenance work orders can be a difficult task, as they pile up quickly, but trust us, with the assistance of a general contractor, it is possible to resolve them quickly and efficiently. We as general contractors respect the work of property maintenance companies and how much time they put into making sure everyone in a building or complex is happy with their living conditions. We want to reiterate how important and beneficial it is to provide high-quality maintenance services with the following list.
A High-Quality Repair and Maintenance Team Helps Ensure Safety.
Some work orders can lead to danger if left untouched for too long, and other times, apartment tenants are not even aware of some dangers within their apartment or the building itself. If you stay up-to-date on work orders and have regularly updated spreadsheets of how long it has been since certain appliances have been checked in each apartment, you can be saving tenants from potentially hazardous areas.
Property Remains Clean and Repairs are Easy to Take Care of.
If you organize necessary updates and work orders into a spreadsheet or whatever you prefer to store your data in, you will be able to make sure the property continues to be clean. If you are checking each space regularly, at the attention of the tenant of course, you will be able to check for necessary upgrades, and work order repairs become smaller and easier to accomplish.
The Exterior of the Property is Well-Maintained.
If someone is living in a complex, they still care about the looks of its exterior as much as homeowners do. If the grass is mowed regularly, sidewalks are kept clean and flowers are planted, tenants will feel more at home and more excited to invite guests over to see their spot. Exterior improvement is just as important as interior improvement, if not more important, because who wants to live in a building with a run-down exterior? If the outside looks unattractive, people looking for places to live are less likely to even look at the inside, and tenants are necessary to keep the business afloat.
Property Value Remains High in the Market.
If the property is not well-maintained, it loses its assets and slowly deteriorates. If it is routinely maintained and checked for damage, the property value could continue to increase. The increase in the property value means an increase in the rent for tenants, so it is a win-win for the business. Kitchen and bathroom renovation is the most ever-changing, so be sure to keep those as updated as possible. The cost of a bathroom remodel can be frightening, but it is worth it to maintain and improve property value.
People Moving in Have Assistance.
In many large-scale housing complexes, tenants are expected to do all of the moving in and out work on their own. With a high-quality property maintenance company working for a complex, tenants will have assistance when carrying large items such as furniture up and down staircases.
