Finding a Great Maintenance Company For Property Refurbishment

Whether you are a private domestic homeowner, a landlord or a commercial property manager, your property is likely to be one of the biggest investments you will ever make. And that’s why it pays to look after it. If you aren’t handy at DIY or are short on time, then hiring the services of a company that carries out maintenance and property refurbishment in Hampshire or beyond could pay dividends.

Routine maintenance can identify emerging issues and small problems that, if left unaddressed, can worsen over time and cause significant damage to a building or its exterior. It’s a false economy to ignore a dripping tap or a broken section of guttering, because it won’t get better by itself. And tired décor or exterior paintwork will only deteriorate further and lead to the job being more expensive to carry out over the longer term. But how can you find the best property refurbishment company for your needs?

Find a Company With A Broad Skills Base

First, look for a company that can carry out a wide range of services. If you find one you can trust, it means they can do jobs all around the house and outside too, cutting the time it takes each time you need some work done in securing quotes from different tradesmen. Source one that can handle everything from painting and decorating to plastering, tiling, electrics and plumbing. Then, you will need to deal only with this one company. You can build a relationship with the team you employ which will usually mean the work gets done faster and with less effort too.

Secondly, check the reputation of any property maintenance company you’re thinking of using. Look for accreditations, testimonials and experience. A company that’s been working in the local area for a number of years will be able to provide references from satisfied customers and will be visible on online directories such as Checkatrade, where every tradesperson registered is checked, vetted and referenced.

Check They Can Demonstrate Work on Properties Similar to Your Own

Once you have found a company that has a good reputation and offers the range of services you need, speak to them face-to-face. You want to get a feel for how they work, whether they are friendly yet professional and so on. If you are going to have them on your property, whether for one-off or ongoing maintenance, you need to be sure they are approachable and trustworthy. Ask them about existing clients – have they worked on similar properties to your own? Check their average response times in emergencies, if this is important to you.

Also ask about their staff’s training and professional qualifications. And finally, request details of their insurances. They should be able to prove that they have the right level on insurance in place to cover any problems if anything goes wrong while they are working on your property.
