Many commercial building owners suffer as a result of deferred maintenance, which can be avoided.

In most cases, minor expenses turn into major repairs or retrofits because the situation has been left without proper upkeep for unnecessary periods of time. A small leak, left unattended or improperly repaired, can create major damage to the building structure and its finishes. Dilapidated exterior stairways, steps, fencing, windows and more all have the potential to deteriorate faster than normal if not maintained properly.

AmeriPro has developed an annual maintenance inspection program and reporting module to ensure these conditions are discovered as early as possible. Preventing unnecessary expenses will reduce your cost of building ownership and maximize your investment return.

Our detailed report will document all components and elements and outline the condition of the same for the entire building or number of buildings.

The main objective is that we help you to reduce your long term exposure by keeping up with your building’s health, and ensure typical maintenance is performed before situations get out of hand. Remember, early detection is the key to maximizing your return on investment.

Random Contractor Repair Approvals

Experience has shown that many repairs conducted by building owners/managers are not completed 100% or if finished, not completed correctly. In these cases, repairs made will fail prematurely or worse, cause ADDITIONAL issues increasing your original expense to the owners/managers, often resulting in lost rental income, increased vacancy rates and more.

Why not bring in a third-party quality assurance program to protect your interests? You will not be let down, but your contractors may be a little upset.

In random repair approvals, we inspect every so many units or repairs (we select a random, representative sample depending on the size of the project) for compliance with standard practices, quality and relevant codes. We examine all of the contractor’s paperwork including invoices, proposals, permits, etc. Upon completion of review, we report to the building owner/manager on the quality and/or completion of repair so that payment is made appropriately and with confidence.

This ensures your contractors are held accountable and repairs are completed with quality. It also goes a long way to assure owners of the investment they are making on their real estate is maximized for long term investment.

Capital Improvement Verifications - Improvements underway or just starting

So many times we have been called out to discover building owners/managers replacing roof coverings or siding prematurely or the nightmare of a small repair turned into a major issue overnight bursting the budget previously approved. In these cases, hiring us before the project began could have saved these individuals tremendous amounts of time and money. But just because we aren’t working for you from the beginning, doesn’t mean we can’t help.
 
  If your project is already underway and you are inundated with owner or tenant complaints, cost overruns, change orders, quality control issues and much more, don’t delay, bring us out to help. It is never too late. Your contractor is still onsite, works are still ongoing, and a third party quality assurance approach will shift the playing field to your advantage.
 
Having a professional building consultant review and report issues, deal with the contractor bidding and selection and the quality of works underway or problems, approve the cost overruns, contractor payment requests, code violations and much more, is far less stressful and expensive on building owners/managers than the accelerated costs associated with not doing anything. If you choose the latter of going on your own, you run the risk of wasting resources, premature failures, special assessments before they are due and more!
