Property Maintenance Services in Milwaukee
Milwaukee Property Managers Offer Year-Round Maintenance Services
Painting Services for Homes, Apartments and More
The first barrier to the elements, paint will take the brunt of Mother Nature’s wraith protecting whatever it covers. That also means it needs to be checked constantly and properly maintained.
Ideally done during the drier, breezier summer months. Plan on major painting to be done during this time. Some painting will be done all year long as tenants move in and out, but major painting projects should be saved for a time when paint dries faster and can be easily ventilated.
Milwaukee Roof Inspections for Rental Properties
Though they last a long time when built properly roofs still need to be at least inspected yearly. Catching an aging roof before it becomes a problem prevents other issues from happening like water damage, mold, ruined insulation, and animals moving in.
Structural Repairs for Milwaukee Properties
Repairing a roof to building a retaining wall or repairing a stairway the summer is the best time to undertake structural repairs. Tackling these challenges while the weather is in your favor is just best practice. It’ll only get worse as winter approaches the weather becomes less stable as the seasons change.
Property Management Company Offers Yard Maintenance
More than just mowing the yard or pulling weeds. Yard maintenance includes removing dying trees, checking branch to make sure that it won’t obstruct power lines when potentially weighed down by snow or ice. Checking how water pools and drains around your building can help you identify potential risks of ice before winter comes and a potential incident occurs.
Chimney Cleanings and Inspections
If your property has a chimney it needs to be inspected and cleaned. The particles that are released when something is burned can actually become explosive if they build up enough over time. Though not common in larger apartment complexes, duplexes and rental homes may have fire places that need to be checked. Upgrading a wood burning fire place to something cleaner burning will limit the dangers, but they will always need to be inspected.
Milwaukee Gutter Cleaning
With the falling leaves in Wisconsin, proper gutter maintenance will save issues and money over the long run. Unobstructed roof drainage will make sure that water from snow or ice melt gets where it needs to and does build up on the roof or gutters. Either going up and cleaning them out yourself, or hiring a professional, it needs to be done. Clean, and properly draining gutters can save thousands in costly roof repairs if water or ice damage compromise the roof or gutters.
Our Property Maintenance Includes HVAC Services
Being proactive about furnace and air conditions will save money, time, and the wrath of an angry renter. Though people will hardly think about the system when it works perfectly, they definitely remember when the system fails in the middle of winter.
Having a professional inspect and perform preventative maintenance now will prevent an issue when the temperature crashes and all of your tenants turn on their heat at the same time.
Identifying weakness in buildings weakness will save you money over time and keep your residents happy. Replacing old windows with more energy efficient models, spray foaming holes to prevent drafts from entering the building, or installing a door jab that prevents hot hair from leaking out. Though it seems a little silly it is also important to check on the actual building insulation to make sure it isn’t ruined by a faulty roof and provides the insulation that it should.
Property Management Company Handles Insurance Policies
Paperwork, property insurance policies need to be current and address natural and tenant damages. Insurance does not cover maintenance, but for when things go wrong. The last thing a property owner wants is to lose out on their insurance after an incident occurs because their policy was voided as the owner was found to be neglectful.
Safety Device Certification & Installation
A different type of insurance. Though most cities have ordinances that require certain levels of tenant protection, having a proactive approach to checking smoke and carbon monoxide detectors can literally save a person’s life. Other things asked of property owners is yearly certification of fire extinguishers and sprinkler systems.
Waters Line Repair & Prevention for Milwaukee Properties
Tied with power outages and much harder to fix, frozen, or worse, ruptured water lines are a property owner’s nightmare. Making sure that outside water lines are properly taken care of is a tedious but crucial way to save thousands in self-imposed damages.
A yearly check on the water lines where they enter your building can help prevent an entire building losing water in the middle of winter.
Gutters aren’t the only thing that need to be cleaned. Picking up the outdoor space of your property will prevent hazards in the winter. Tools, outdoor furniture, and grills should be secured in a place that is out of the reach of the elements. Not only will this mean they last longer, but are easier to use when and find when the worst weather does strike.
Milwaukee Rental Property Snow Removal
Whatever the arrangement is with your tenants, snow and ice need to be removed from pathways. But if you’ve spread out the maintenance over the year this should be one of the few things you have to worry about during the winter months.
