Fall Exterior Maintenance Tips For A Commercial Property Building

Fall Exterior Maintenance Tips For A Commercial Property Building
  • Opening Intro -

    After the end of the summer season, before the breeze sets in, is an ideal time to add to the exterior of residential and commercial property buildings.

    You can trim the doors, windows and decks, get the gutter cleaned, add a sprinkler system to the lawn and do a lot more.


The right approach will increase the health of your property and prepare it for the next few months of winter. Also, it can also increase the resale value in case you want to sell off the building before the winter ends.

Some of the things you can do for maintenance include:

1.  Add to doors and windows

Seals and cracks on the outside of the windows and doors can result from the change in humidity and temperature. For sealing any drafts, leaks or cracks, you can install weather strips for the doors and windows.

The alternative approach is to trim the wood surrounding both of them and fill the holes with a caulk. You can also get the old wood replaced with a new one. Use a silicon spray for tracks that are lightly lubricated, while cleaning the rest of them with the help of a vacuum. Stubborn dust around the windows and patio doors can be removed with the help of a soft bristle brush.

2.  Improve the health of the lawn

Even if you diligently cared for the lawn in the summer season, scraggly patches, crab grass and brown spots may still be visible. You will have to follow best practices because even little lawn care mistakes can result in further damage. For example, over-watering can lead to bare spots, old blades can rip the grass rather than mowing it and early fertilization can eliminate new roots.

Commercial services are also available if you’re unsure about lawn care best practices. And in case you require lawn care for the property of a customer, a good commercial lawn care company will develop a tailored program that will fit the needs of the customer, and save you from getting involved in documentation, paperwork and licensing.

3.  Insulation of plumbing lines

If plumbing lines are left unattended, uninsulated spaces can lead to an increase in energy bills because the water heater will function beyond its normal range in the winter. Another problem that can result if the property is in a region where the temperature goes below the freezing mark is the bursting of pipes.

To avoid these problems, you should inspect (take help if necessary) all the plumbing lines on the property, and in the attic or basement. A frugal solution to curb the exposed pipes is to cover them with a foam wrap before the cold starts to set in. This will also result in energy savings as the heater’s functioning will remain at an optimal level.

Note: Maintaining the exterior of a commercial property is more challenging than taking care of a residential home. This is because the former takes longer to complete and in some cases requires permits and/or approval from the local governing body. You can check with the local body dealing in commercial properties about whether a permit/approval is required for this kind of maintenance.
