Maintenance and Repairs

Residential & Commercial

When it comes to your home, your business or investment properties, deferring maintenance can result in more involved and costly repairs in the future. Cheap discount repairs are usually not a wise decision either. In over twenty years of working on structures Iíve encountered many situations where the customer would have been much better off not choosing the low bid contractor and spend a few additional dollars with someone who actually knew what they were doing.

Experience in dealing with specific systems is a good start, but being able to make it up as you go is invaluable. Repairing a building requires a good trouble shooter, someone who can diagnose the problem and devise a solution then perform the repair. Familiarization with various construction techniques, materials and their properties is a big aid. Keeping abreast of new materials, when and how to utilize them is paramount.

Some parts of a structure are built to last a lifetime and needing to repair them is usually a result of not performing maintenance on the items that do require periodic attention. You can approach maintenance a couple of ways. Periodic inspections and scheduled maintenance will allow you to prevent maintenance items from surprising you at inconvenient times. Another way is to let maintenance items go to failure and promptly repairing them before additional damage is done.

When you can observe the signs of the failure, damage has occurred. The problem with waiting for failure, besides the damage factor, is it doesnít always happen at a time when it is convent to make repairs. The third and most expensive way is to ignore the problem as long as you can and then spend big bucks to replace it all.
