Four Things to Keep Track of to Ensure Efficient Property Maintenance


If it’s your first time investing in real estate, or you have a tight schedule that prevents you from taking care of your assets, you will most likely find yourself looking for the services of a property maintenance company. To see that everything runs perfectly from the lease to the next bid on your buildings, ensure that the prospective property maintenance professional has sufficient experience in his field to work toward increasing the value of your assets.

There are four things you should keep track of when securing the services of a qualified property maintenance company.

• To begin with, it is compulsory for a property maintenance professional in Coventry to have a total quality assurance program that guarantees the delivery of efficient maintenance services within 24 hours. The best way to make sure that you receive quality services is to install a pay per task program, which is more motivational than the normal pay per hour system.

Work With a Property Maintenance Company To Get Your Home Rented Out


Renting out your property in Coventry – especially if it’s a house you helped build and design – is a tough decision to make. You may have decided to rent it out to help pay some bills, to have an additional source of income, or simply because you’d want the house to be occupied rather than sit empty for months. Whatever your reasons for deciding to rent out your home, you should consider hiring a trusted property maintenance company to make sure that the property is not only habitable, but also appealing to all tenants.

Get Help to Prepare the Property

If the house hasn’t been lived in for a couple of months, you should expect that there are certain areas, fixtures, or furnitures that will have to be fixed or updated. Having these checked and replaced before making the property available for viewing will certainly make potential tenants want to move in immediately. If you’re only renting out a room or space in your house, on the other hand, then you can ask your property maintenance company to secure that area from the rest of your house. Doing so will provide security for both you and your tenant.

Why Qualified Electrical Services for Property Maintenance Are Crucial


Electrical service is one component you must consider when hiring professionals to provide property maintenance and facility management. The state of a building’s electrical system affects its efficiency in a myriad of ways. Whether it’s a rental or a commercial building, the electric supply must be in the best state.

If it’s a factory, it has to run without interruptions because of all the machinery involved in the different operations. For an apartment complex, tenants need electricity for lighting and appliances and for this reason, your property maintenance in Coventry has to include qualified electricians.

Handyman Services: Cowboy Builders for All-Around Property Maintenance


Turn the clock back 50 years, and it’s surprising that a large number of properties and property extensions built during that time, haven’t fallen down. Or perhaps they have. It was the boom time for cowboy builders – and building inspectors who weren’t averse to the odd free package holiday.

Although things have improved to a point, as far as jerry-building is concerned, it is still alive and well. Almost 2.5 million disputes between home owners and incompetent ‘tradesmen’ reached the UK courts in just three years between 2008 and 2011.

Many of these disputes involved what we would call ‘small works’, single storey property extensions and loft conversions. Internal property improvements such as kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom refits, adding additional electrical points and light fittings, and general home redecoration work, have all seen homeowners and property landlords in dispute with builders over shoddy, and in some cases, downright dangerous workmanship.

Prevention is Better than Cure When it Comes to Property Maintenance


Did you know that most people spend on average over £3,000 per year on the upkeep and decoration of their home’s interior, yet less than £300 on the exterior?

We all want our homes to look presentable. At least, it would seem that inside, we do. We want our homes to be aesthetically pleasing, to be the envy of our neighbours, with all mod-cons in kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms. How soul-destroying when, three months after spending hundreds of pounds on new decorations, carpets, and furniture, damp patches begin to appear on ceilings. Or damp begins ruining the new wallpaper. The first big storm of the winter has broken the camel’s back – or at least finally got under that loose tile, split flashing, or penetrated brickwork through that missing mortar.

Coventry Property Maintenance: DIY or Pro Wood Floor Installation?


Has your wooden floor lost the sparkle and elegance that once made it the envy of your friends and neighbours? It’s probably time to replace it. However, if you’re thinking of taking on the task yourself, it may not be as easy as you think. As any good Coventry property maintenance expert will tell you, wood floor installation requires some pretty advanced handyman skills and the use of a lot of tools, among many other considerations. Be sure to consider these key aspects of the job before you decide to go the DIY route.

Choosing the best type of flooring

Basically, you have three choices when it comes to wood flooring: traditional hardwood, engineered hardwood, and laminates. Deciding on the best flooring choice can be overwhelming, so it can be helpful to have an experienced tradesman educate you to make an informed decision.
