building maintenance

Ever heard the saying, prevention is better than cure?

When it comes to property repair and maintenance, many facility managers react to issues instead of being proactive. And the reason for this is not farfetched – with all the pressure to save money where possible, building maintenance and repair can often be abandoned for more immediate concerns. Waiting until something is damaged to fix it may be cheaper in the short term, but it can result in expensive surprises in the future.

You can avoid surprises or sudden building problems with periodic scheduled building and property maintenance. Here is what routine maintenance tailored to your building by a company like Robert Haines Co. can provide:

Sustainability and Energy Efficiency

Poorly maintained buildings and properties are not suitable for business or the environment. If heat is finding a way to escape or you’re letting in cold air or water, these are issues that should be fixed. To make up for these building problems and make it more comfortable, you’ll use more energy and probably increase your carbon footprint.

Maintaining the resources you already have is a sustainable thing to do; it keeps large repair projects to the minimum and reduces waste or the need for new materials.

Avoid Major Repairs

You can evade unpleasant and unexpected surprises with a regular maintenance schedule. Periodic inspections, testing and cleaning allow professionals to ensure that everything is okay, can improve the durability of your building and keep it performing at its best. You will be able to spot problems before they become bigger or unmanageable and avoid investing in major repairs that can disrupt your work or comfort.


Regular maintenance is not only good for the building but can also help ensure the health and safety of your family, employees, customers, pets and more. Inspecting your interior and exterior for cracks, leaks and other damage can help you keep everyone comfortable and prevent people from getting sick or injured.

Higher Curb Appeal

Proper maintenance helps upkeep the attractiveness of a property and its surrounding, aiding in increasing the value of your building. Maintaining your property’s external and internal integrity and aesthetic value will help attract customers and keep them coming back.

Wind, sun, rain, and other weather elements can break down doors, windows, roofs, and other building features. Performing routine cosmetic check-ups is not only good for your first impression; it could also help you spot other problems that might otherwise go unnoticed.


Investing in maintenance can save you thousands in the long run by helping you avoid expensive projects, potential lawsuits and other large bills. What’s more is that the right team of professionals will do the work quickly, correctly and at the best price.
